Celebrating Anyways…

Being Wednesday, it is also my TOPS day and I went and faced the scale.  I was excited because this is the first month that I’ve been able to attend each meeting – a good reason to celebrate.  Showing up is important!

I had hoped to lose a little more than I did – but while I’m pretty good at the exercise part, the after work snacking is still my favourite method of shooting myself in the foot.    I do still have reason to celebrate – a loss of .75 pounds – close enough to my goal to make me more determined to get going.



The daisies are for the loss and that funky green flower is for my perfect attendance this month.  I have to tell you that I’m thrilled to bits to have those flowers in my livingroom today – especially since it’s snowing again in Calgary.

A book I am listening to, Eat the Cookie, Buy the Shoes by Joyce Meyer is a reminder that life’s successes should be celebrated and I want to be more mindful of this.  It’s easy for me to berate myself over my mistakes and failures, and easy to forget to celebrate my successes!

I hope that I can begin to focus more on the small successes that happen each day – rather than making  those  failures bigger than they really are.

Perhaps that will be encouraging to you as well!  Here’s to the successes you’ve enjoyed today!




About Marcia Stehouwer

I have a great life (most days) and a small budget, so being frugal is one of my favourite hobbies. I started this blog after procrastinating for 3 months, on April Fool's Day. I knit, I read, I knit, I work... I am also about a quarter of the way through my goal to lose 100 pounds. So between knitting, working, reading etc., I also do some walking!
