The email

Today I received an email. The title? “Meika, you didn’t weigh in last week”. My first thought was to delete it. I knew that I hadn’t weighed in. I had gained weight and didn’t really want to face it so I simply didn’t enter the numbers. But I didn’t delete it I decided to open it and read it. When I read it I felt like I had been kicked in the gut…

“If you've fallen behind, it happens. I wont say I'm happy about it because you made a commitment, but I'm a realist and sometimes things do get in the way.  I am going to be upfront with you and ask you, how many times have 'things' gotten in the way before? How many times have you started something with the best of intentions only to give up.”

I could almost hear the disappointment in Mish’s voice. I am not used to this, I was always a good girl at school I did well in my subjects and generally made my parents and teachers proud. Don’t get me wrong I was by no means perfect, far from it, but generally I wanted to please people.

But she is right, time for me to recommit and follow through!
