Unstuck

Posted in Life tagged , , , , , at 12:43 am by lindaslongview

Back in August my blogging waned and by October it was gone.  No real reason except that I was stuck.

Although usually quite reselient, I got stuck when I lost my illustion of victory against osteoporosis.  What did I have to say after I had already declared victory in Moved the Needle by achieving one full standard deviation (from -2.6 to -1.6) of improvement after my first year and then regressing a half a standard deviation (-1.6 to -2.1)?

My battle with osteoporosis had helped me to create this blog, but my too early victory declaration reduced my commitment to my long-view premise and credibility. It was just easy to get involved in other important pursuits…

Yet, I have continued to feel the pull of the long-view, so I am declaring myself unstuck.

My long-view advice to self:

  • Stay confident when faced with a setback.
  • Persist when investing in the future (the long-view).

For the record, I regressed a half a standard deviation after one year of drug holiday (Boniva) but fully compliant load-bearing exercise (increased mineralization) and calcium supplements (increased mineral availability).

In late summer, I will know whether I can achieve -1.1 in 2011 with the assistance of drug therapy (Boniva).

Drip, Drip, Drip!
