It is amazing the amount of time I spend thinking about my weight...what I can do to change it, what I have done to gain it. I have incredible thoughts and ideas in my head. In my mind I am always eating right, drinking water, and working out on regular basis.

But then reality strikes. My favorite pants are uncomfortable, I hate seeing myself in pictures, and my wonderful summer tank tops show off my ever waving arms. I wonder how I got here, and how I can get back. It could be as simple as actually participating in my mind's reality, but that requires committment. And even my husband knows how hard that is for me.

But, with all that said, I am committing. Re-committing, and remembering that I am worth the time it takes to take care of me. I don't want to say it is about making me a better person, but there really is a part of me that likes me better when I do take care of me, because I look better, I feel better and that alone makes me better.

So I am done with the 'I'm too tired', or 'I'll do it later', and am replacing it with 'If not now, when', 'It's not an option' and most importantly in the immortal words of Yoda, "Try not. Do or Do Not, there is no Try.'

    Sometimes we need to re-commit on a daily or even hourly basis. Good for you for choosing YOU. You ARE WORTH IT!

    Yoda is very wise! I've been in the same places you've been more times than I want to count, and I just recently recommitted again. But I also remember that there will be slip up and plateaus, I just have to keep on keepin' on.

    You keep on too!!!!!

    Sometimes we're all our worst enemy when we fail to see what really is. Today is my first day on the program and I'm determined to get the weight off for good this time. It's insane how easily it all comes back on when it takes soooo long to come off. But lets get it off this time!! My arm is "ever-waving" right back at you (hopefully all of our arms will be firmer in the future...good luck)
