For the past few years, I have always sat around saying "I'm going to lose weight this year!", and yet after the third, fourth, or fifth year comes along, nothing. Maybe I made excuses for myself or slacked off because of the typical responses like "I'm tired", "One day won't hurt", or "I'm stressed so one cookie will not hurt me". However, I am tired of all the excuses that I have made for myself over the past few years.
Granted I know I am not obese and have always been healthy by going to the gym, but now more than ever have I realized that I need to go beyond just these basics, that I need to put more effort in if I even want to see changes.
I am not looking to be a size zero or look like to model on the cover of Cosmo; rather, I want to finally come to accept a lifestyle that will not only be helpful and ego-boosting now, but one that will overall improve my life for years to come!
I know I cannot change all of these "excuses" overnight at the drop of a hat, but slowly I want to start changing my lifestyle so I may be able to enjoy the life that I have!
