As I reflected on losing the 50 pounds I promised myself to lose before I can go on my trip in November I caught myself doing something I have always done that needs to change!
I was saying to myself that since I am overseas now until March it is hard to lose. Then I go home for 3 months and can do okay BUT then I come back again for 3 months and THEN when I get home I have TWO vacations scheduled so it will be hard to lose weight. Well, all that is true. But it is all excuses too.
Yes, I have all those things planned but that is my life. I am always doing SOMETHING like that. So, when is the time to do what I need to do? There is NO perfect time to start a diet. BUT, the time to start eating healthy is NOW and I have to learn to adjust how I see food.
I always see it as the enemy. I'm sure during all those times I will WANT to eat something I shouldn't but I think there will be options for me to eat correctly most of the time.
So, today I have decided that I will make no more excuses about why I can't eat right.
This is big for me. Today is the first day of the rest of my life.
