365 ~ 10/14/14 ~ 359
52 days since my last blog!
I am wrapping up 365 days of "something" in the next week.
What a disappointment!
A failure really!
Not at all what I intended it to be!
Not even close!
What's the point of going on?
It's time to just bury this year and move on!
What's that "they" say about the 5 stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance?
Are there 5 stages of weight loss?
5 stages of getting healthy?
When do you know you've succeeded in this journey?
So I went googling...
"stages of weight loss"
One location names 5 stages: challenge, awareness, preparation, action, and maintaining your goals
Another by title states 7 stages, but then only lists 6: denial, the decision, action, getting to goal, learning to stay there, and accepting that this is a lifelong journey.
Then I did a search here, on SP and found:
A blog from ALLYTHEATHLETE titled: The 5 Stages of Weight Loss
5. Determination (full circle)
Reviewing these various sources I find that I don't fully agree with any one of them yet I do believe they are all, in some way, quite accurate. Perhaps they should be combined in some way? Or maybe they represent facets of the same emotion somehow?
In the end it doesn't matter - we are all unique individuals! While we reach out to connect on some common ground we still must recognize no one else is quite like us.
So - (blissfully unaware of what stage I'm in) - I go on, keep moving forward, in whatever type of journey I am on!
There are changes on the horizon...
Makes no sense to keep doing that which is not bringing the results desired!
