I wish that I could say that I have been taking all of the right steps to get to the life that I want to live, but I would be a liar.
What I can say is that I am taking baby steps in the right direction. I am making little changes that I am hoping keep me moving in the right direction. I no longer drink 6 to 8 cokes a day. I try to have only one and somedays I just have one glass of sweet tea instead. When I take my daughters to the beach now, I no longer sit in a chair the whole time and watch them play. I jump the waves with them. I bought a frisbee and a water football so we can play. Did you know that throwing a frisbee is a lot harder than it looks? I didn't remember that part! When we go to the pool now I swim instead of floating around on a raft or hanging off the side of the pool. And you know what? I am having so much more fun!
So here is my favorite part. I've started roller skating! I loved it so much when I was young. I found a place close by that has a family skating night on Tuesday and it only costs $2 per person. We have been going for a couple of hours every Tuesday for the last 3 weeks. My daughter loves it so much that we are having her bday party there next weekend! I know I probably shouldn't be doing it with my bad knees and all, but I don't care. I love it.
I can't wait to get some of this weight off so that I can enjoy myself even more!
