I tend to compare losing weight to a building taking shape on a construction site -- brick by brick, bucket by bucket, inch by inch, day by day, you put the pieces together
But with the work comes uncertainty, fear, mistakes, unexpected roadblocks and disappointments. Some of these kinks can take us a couple of steps back for a week or two.
Others can hold us back forever, if we let them.
I let myself cave in to a kink once.
