How do you plan on spending the next phase of your life?

Monday, September 05, 2011

I had this thought of breaking down my life in phases.

My first phase was from birth to about the age of 28/29. I was thin, confident and happy up until this age. I had two kids by this age and that is when the weight started to pack on my body.

The second phase of my life from age 30 until now, I am 44 now, I am fat, well not fat, obese. I am sad, uncomfortable and lacking in self confidence. Not a phase I want to continue to be staying in.

Now, the 3rd and last phase will be from this day forward heading back to the way the 1st phase was....but more settled, grounded, happy, secure, self confident, reassured and healthy.

I am sad that I have wasted 14/15 years of being this way, but going forward I need to change it. It's a short period of time compared to the other 2 phases added together. So I don't want to dwell on time lost, I want to focus on the best phase that's about to come.

So you need to ask yourself the same question, How do you want to spend the next phase of your life?

    Great question! I, too feel as you do. Time to move forward and feel better about ourselves. emoticon

    I want to spend the rest of my life in a healthy body that allows me the freedom to enjoy life to the fullest...as a participant and not a spectator.

    I like this. Eventhough I too am disappointed I've let myself be where I am (in a big and uncomfortable body) for so long I like to remind myself that the future could be brighter if I take control. Great blog!

    I'm turning 60 this year, and have four amazing grandkids, two just born in the last few months. I want my next phase to be full of fun activities with them, including the fitness activities I used to do.
