This time, I want to lose the weight for good. Last year I lost 63 pounds, but regained more than 50. At the moment, I feel discouraged and afraid! But I tell myself fear is good--it can help me get serious. I also want to do better by my children. When I eat well and exercise, they do too. And when I don't, they inevitably follow suit. So I'm not only gambling with my health--I'm gambling with theirs, which is unacceptable.
To lose 83 pounds, to run a full marathon, and to participate in a beginner's triathlon.
I'm using SparkPeople, I'm weight training twice a week, I'm taking various exercise classes at the Y, I'm swimming, I'm running, and I'm walking. (I love to exercise!)
“You are not a victim. No matter what you have been through, you're still here. You may have been challenged, hurt, betrayed, beaten, and discouraged, but nothing has defeated you. You are still here! You have been delayed but not denied. You are not a victim, you are a victor. You have a history of victory.”
