I got on the treadmill again today, and it was easier. It gets a little easier every day. I'm finally remembering that I "like" exercise, lol. I am studying my schedule now to find a few minutes to add some resistance training next week. Here a little, there a little. . .after a while it will start to add up.
I'm looking at this as a journey instead of a mad sprint for the finish line. This time, it will be different from every other time in the past. No matter how hard I tried, I never did look at losing weight as a lifestyle change. No, it was a "fix it now" attitude that I dropped as soon as my weight got close to where I wanted it.
I am so thankful that the Lord led me to Sparkpeople so I could have a whole community of people doing the same thing I'm doing. Every time I get discouraged, I go read stories on this website. It is amazing to see people succeeding and taking it one day at a time. I know I'm going to fall down; I also know I'm going to get back up again. For the first time in years, I really believe myself when I say I'm going to lose this weight and get healthier.
Thanks Sparkpeople. . .you're the greatest!
