after a difficult time. Took me longer than I wanted but I'm moving forward again.
I just got back from a dance weekend. The last few I've been on....well, I'm not going to even bother looking back when I feel so positive and refreshed.
I had a great time, a lot of laughs, quality time with my daughter and my friend, reconnected with some old friends and made some new ones. This break was just what I needed. I feel like ME again!!!
Now back to the business of getting back in shape and HEALTHY!!! Losing weight is great, you feel great, you look great but you need to have a program that works...something you can live with, something that fits into your lifestyle. And I have no problem changing my lifestyle but there are some things I just refuse to give up because they bring me pleasure. I'll find a way to work them in. Life is meant to be enjoyed.
I know it's not a laughing matter when you want to lose weight. It's not easy. It takes determination...and a lot of work. But I know it's worth it in the end. I'll get back to where I was but I want to do it with some humor. But I will get there. And so can you!!!
Today is just another starting point...no looking back. Taking those small steps and sometimes giant leaps. As long as I'm moving forward I'm . And that's a good place to be.
I have a few but I'm making progress. I'm making small changes, ones that will stick. Now that the weather is getting better I know I'll spend more time outside. The yard work is calling me!!! But I do enjoy it, mostly. I just have to pace myself and not try to do everything in one weekend.
I still haven't stepped on the scale. I think I've lost some weight...not a lot... but it will come off. My eating has been good (not perfect) but I do need to kick up the exercise and the warmer weather always motivates me. I don't mind the cold but this past winter was a bit much for me. I'm ready to put the sweaters, boots, gloves, hats and scarves away! And retire the snow shovel.
Persistence and drive...... Stubbornness....that's me!!!
I may be losing weight. I don't know. I refuse to step on the scale or take my measurements. My clothes feel loser...some days...but I'm eating healthy, mostly... and trying to get in some exercise. But I feel good! I plan to step up my game this week. I think the nicer weather is helpful. But even if it snows or gets bitterly cold, yet again, I'm going for it.
After my last birthday I was feeling old. But then I saw this...
And I want to add this. I wish it weren't true but it is....
And this is for tomorrow if I don't get a chance to get on here (I'm trying to have a non-computer life)
