Today, I have made a decision. Well, actually I made it last week - but just the same, I have decided to make lots of changes - for no other reason than for ME.
I've tried other ways - of doing what others thought was best......what others wanted me to look like, and eat, etc.
It would last for a while - but then I'd fail miserably again and sink into my deep depressive funk.
I have come to realize, the only thing that truely matters in life, is what God thinks and what I think. If I live the way I know I can and should - if I treat myself and my body with the respect it deserves - I cannot fail.
I won't tell you that it is easy to pass the snacks by at work - it isn't easy to have overweight friends who aren't ready or willing to make changes - and it definitely is not easy being around negativity.
I have decided to start my day off being thankful and trying to surround my self with positive things - be it quotes, or music - anything to keep me focused on being positive.
Now, I know there are days & times when you can't be 100% positive.....I am just determined not to let it get me down anymore.
I am going to live and not "wait" until I look like the vision I have in my head of myself. I have passed too many things by because I've been worried about what others would think or say because I am not the poster child for the 'perfect body'.
I know that if I am happy with myself - the rest will come.
I am worth it and I deserve it!

    If we wait until we are perfect, we will run out of time. Wouldn't it be a shame to get to our last days after achieving the body we envision only to realize how much fun and happiness we deprived ourselves of along the way because we waited until we were perfect to enjoy life along the way? So, go for it and enjoy the ride! -- Lou

    Great attitude...I really believe in the saying "Have an attitude of gratitude"...I believe it is the way to live a happy and fulfilled life.

I also agree with the bible and that it only matters what God thinks about us and if we belong to him he sees the finished person when he looks at us and he is well pleased with us already. He who began a good work in us is faithful to complete it. WOO HOO!
