I'm done fighting it. I am done thinking that I can do it all on my own. I am done thinking I am strong enough to avoid temptations and that I can just "modify" my diet. None of this has worked in the past. I do good for a day or two and then I find myself caving. If I don't get real this time, my weight will just keep creeping in the wrong direction. I will continue to feel sluggish, tired, and my asthma will continue to bother me. I know that losing weight helps me physically, mentally, and emotionally. I know that I need to get the pounds off because they literally weigh me down in every way especially with my asthma. I am ready to truly make the commitment needed to lose the weight this time. I can give up the bad stuff and make healthy decisions. I need to as I am the example for my kids. I want them to never struggle so I need to model good things for them. Today is the day I start limiting my sugar intake and my carb intake for a little while. Today is the day I start making conscious, healthy decisions. Today I give up fighting myself and start doing what I know is right. Today I am going to start fighting the weight instead of myself.
