What if I told you it wasn't about the weight loss? what would you say or think?
What if I told you that I'm really struggling and I can't figure out what it is?
Or that it's not as easy as what I remember it to be?
Or that it's really easy to stop by and grab something to go?
Not cook for the week?
Get a soda out of the vending machine?
What would you think? How would you answer me? What advice would you give me?
Now what if I told you that I'm dealing with other things at the same time, and don't know how to put those into words? Or that I've decided it IS NOT about the weight loss. Now what would you think?
Well here is what I'm dealing with. .....
We all want to strive to be different in some form or fashion. We try and excel at work, in school, as a wife, as a mother, or just as a human in general. But for someone who has been dealing with weight, it's usually always about that. But now, it's not about that anymore...I don't know if it ever will be again. I don't care if I weight 150lbs, 175lbs, or 250lbs, but what I do care about is, that I'm going to be healthy. You can be skinny and not be healthy. It's a proven fact. So for now, I'm going to concentrate on being healthy.
As of today, I've taken my weight. Put it in my book. And until April 7th. I will not step on the scale. I will not track my food on here. What I will do:
I will log in everyday
I will record my fitness minutes
I will write in my notebook, exactly what I ate, the good the bad and the ugly
And I will have a game plan established every Sunday before I go to bed.
I will start lifting weights. (Simple exercises with dumbbells and kettle bells)
I will commit to a running game plan (already printed out the plans, now to merge them to my calendar)
I will be healthy. I will be happy. I will not be content until my goals are reached.
