I love this autobiography: it is inspirational. We each need to find our own path though our weightloss journey, but we can share our journey with others along the way and give each other directions. :wink:

Autobiography in five short chapters - Portia Nelson

1 I walk down the street
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I fall in
I am lost ... I am helpless
It isn’t my fault.
It takes forever to find a way out.

2. I walk down the same street .
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I pretend I don’t see it
I fall in again
I can’t believe I’m in the same place.
But, it isn’t my fault.
It still takes a long time to get out.

3. I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I see it is there
I still fall in... it’s a habit
My eyes are open.
I know where I am.
It is my fault.
I get out immediately.

4. I walk down the street.
There is a deep hole In the sidewalk.
I walk around it.

5. I walk down another street.
