Renewing My Vows
Saturday, December 31, 2011
Well, here I sit on this New Year's Eve afternoon looking forward to a successful 2012! I've armed myself as if I'm going to war to battle this weight once and for all. My health is at risk and I can only pray that I have not waited too late to finally get serious...again.
Yes, I say again because I've been here so many times, determined, motivated and looking forward to a new lifestyle change. Sitting here now, I can't believe how anxious I feel about "renewing my vows." LOL, because that's what it is. Renewing my vows to put myself first for a change, to track and measure my food, to get a daily dose of exercise if only at 10 minute intervals, to drink my water, to keep bad fats out of the house and to continue to stay away from the really bad junk food (I've already eliminated sugary drinks and sweets from my diet) and my biggest culprit, to get my portions under control!
In addition to feeling anxious, I'm also excited and ready to get started. I already have a picture in my head of my success. I've set small attainable goals for myself this time and will celebrate each one. I've excepted that it's not going to happen overnight but I'm ready to settle down for the long haul to reach my personal goal!
