Forever at the starting line

Thursday, March 18, 2010

I feel like I am always starting over, and over, and over and never make any progress. I am trying to come to terms with my depression, and realized that I need to make bigger changes in my life in order to be happy. So a few months ago, I decided to go back to school. I think that having real goals in my life that have nothing to do with my weight may help me to stick to the goals that are weight related. I have gotten too complacent (and bored) in my life, so it's time to move it forward. 2 years from now I will be finishing my bachelors degree and be doing my student teaching. I am not giving up on myself! By the time my youngest is in middle school, I will be ready to take on a classroom of my own. It'll seem strange to be starting a career at 40 surrounded by younger teachers with more experience, but I am glad I stayed home and raised my kids. Now it's time for me to grow up too...

I am glad the nice weather is here, and look forward to getting outside and taking some walks. I might even have a chance to find some of the hiking trails nearby. We just fixed up my husband and daughter's bikes, and I will get one for myself so we can go for family bike rides. I think I can finally get my husband on track, which will help immensly. I know it will take time, but I really think I might be ready this time.

On your mark, get set, GO!!!

    Congrats on making time to do something for you. I hope this leads you down the trail to happiness. I keep finding myself at the beginning too. I wish I could find the thing that would help me to be happy with myself. Good luck on your journey! take care emoticon

    A bike ride in the sunshine sounds so nice! emoticon

    I am feeling a bit like you are...still at the starting line. It's been 8 weeks now and I've only lost weight on week one, two and four. Nothing for the last four weeks. Time to make some adjustments I guess.

    Maybe I'll take a bike ride! =)

    It's so good to have a plan. And not just for weight loss but for life in general. I like having goals and feeling like I am working towards something. I feel in control of my life that way. Congratulations on deciding to go back to school and good luck!
