I made a conscientious decision yesterday to begin my wellness journey again - I'm "starting all over again, it's gonna be rough but I'm going to make it."
I was at a convening for my job yesterday. I brought a nice deep purple jacket and felt very comfortable with myself. At least, a little more comfortable than usual. I talked with myself about being me and although I'm overweight (there I said it!), I'm still the best me I can be at the moment. I ignored the muffins, drank a cup of coffee and listened to the presentation.
A picture of was taken of the group and that's when I knew, for sure. It was a feeling of OH, NO, I hate to see myself and I've got to do something. I knew that it was ME who needed to make that decision. It was ME who needed to take action, and it is ME who will lose weight with a lot of faith, support, and perserverance. ME!
I got up this morning thinking Oh, this hurts! But I put on my walking tape, I set it to 1 mile to start, and I walked for 20 minutes. This is my start, 15 minutes this evening - 30 minutes/day/5 days. My gift to me. Let's go, Lil.
