It's a new year which means it's time for another new years resolution, except, I once again have the same resolution that I have had for the last 5 years, to lose weight. I was recently told, "if you're serious about losing weight do it now because it's even harder once you turn 30". I'll be 30 in 2.5 years, I don't want to be fighting with my weight when I turn 30. I'd rather be thinking about my career, which is well on it's way and possibily looking to get into a realationship again and maybe start a family. I've struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember and I don't want spend the next 10 years obsessing over my weight.
I need to be realistic about it this time. As much as I wish I could wake up tomorrow and be 100lbs lighter, I know it's not going to happen. I also need to not be so disappointed in myself when I don't have it in me to workout everyday or when I have a bad day and just want to sit on the couch, watch tv and veg out. I know myself and I know I will have plenty of days like that.
This year will be about setting realistic goals for myself. Making healthier food choices. Getting portion sizes under control. And most importantly, just being a happier healthy me.
Here's to a new year and a new me.
