You know, that is a cool little expression...Holding My Own
Emphasize Holding and it might mean you are focusing on the holding, what type of holding? A tight grip, a loose grasp, a bear hug or slung over my shoulder like a casual coat. Holding - My Own. Not laying down my own or throwing away my own but holding it - I like to think - in reverence. As if holding dear.
Then a double personal - (not really an English term - I know) My Own. It's mine and I take ownership of it. Emphasis on MY - its not yours - its not any one's - just mine. Emphasis on Own - a possession.
So if I am "Holding My Own" - I am not letting it get away from me, I recognize that it could but I'm not letting it. I like this. While I am not making great strides in my weight loss right now - I am holding my own. I am still eating as healthy as I can. I am staying positive and looking forward to the next window of opportunity when I can advance.
I am still guilt free as I believe I am truly doing the best I can right now. I still refuse to beat myself up or make excuses. My life is busy, I am tired, I am doing the next right thing and if the scale doesn't move, then I know I will eventually change my course. For now I am content, Holding My Own, letting go of perfect and striving for well done.
That's all thanks ya'll!
