The Second Half

July 4, 2014

Can you believe that’s where we are at according to the calendar for 2014!

I don’t know where the first twenty-six weeks of this year have gone. I remember New Year’s Eve like it was a couple of weeks ago and remember revisiting my resolution list (some of you may not know but I make my resolutions on my birthday rather than January 1st) at the start of the “official” New Year with a determination to see the label in the clothes go down, to get back my waist and to find something I enjoy to make me “move more”.

I can report that positive progress has been made on all three of those aspects of my weight loss journey, but the mid-point of 2014 (and the final quarter of my “personal” year) seems like a good point in time to consider my goals and my achievements; to take time to review my progress so far; to look at the lessons learned and to refresh and refocus.

My “mid-term” report is pretty positive. I am definitely seeing results. I definitely have more energy. I have definitely gained weight loss wisdom through my own experiences and the advice, support and shared knowledge that I have found here at WLR.

I know that the journey is ongoing and I know that there will continue to be great days and not-so-good days; sometimes the way ahead will be clear and uncluttered, other times I know there will be rocks in the road which I will have to navigate. It has been that way throughout the first half of 2014…

… but I’m still here, making my way along my WLR route knowing that as long as I keep putting in practice all that I know and all of those things which work for me, that I will continue to see my weight decrease, my fitness levels increase, my general wellbeing improve, and my self-esteem continue to rise.

Of course it won’t be all “sunshine and lollipops” (partly because we have Autumn and Winter and very-little sunshine then, and also because too many lollipops really aren’t part of my WLR plan…although I have to say that if I need a sweet treat at work I’ve been known to reach into my desk drawer and the bag of “traffic light lollies” that lurks at the back (does anyone else remember them?!) They’re perfect to satisfy a craving - they take a while to get through, I can take it out of my mouth if I need to answer the phone, and it’s amazing how sociable my colleagues are when they spot them and wonder if there are any “going spare”!)

But I digress…

The world cup is coming to an end now, but there is still time to watch the matches and see how the pundits analyse the first half.
Why not tune in and listen to what they ask and what they say and see how you could appraise your own “first half”.

What have been the highs?

What about the lows?

Where have you excelled?

Where could you “do better”?

What advice can you give for the impending “second half”?

How should you approach it?

Do you need additional help and support?
(If so why not take time to have a good look around the WLR site – to remind yourself of the wisdom you already know is here and perhaps to find new aspects of the site that you haven’t used as much…..)

Can you review, revise or fine tune your strategies to make the “second half” even more of a success than the “first half”?

And the important thing to remember is:

However your “first half” has gone… it isn’t over until the final whistle. You still have time to get the result that you want.

Yes, you will have to focus; yes, you will have to apply yourself to the task in hand; yes, there will be obstacles in your way from time to time; yes it can be challenging at times, but equally it can be amazing, inspiring and rewarding. The victory is there for the taking…

So… have a great WLR weekend and a fantastic “second half”.
