Well, last night we booked our vacation for next summer which will be a cruise with the entire family in honor of my father in laws 90th birthday!! Everyone is so excited for this family reunion and I made a pact with myself! My mantra for the coming year is:
I will not be the heaviest woman in the family anymore!!!
I want to thoroughly enjoy every minute of the cruise with my family and I will not let my weight stand in the way of me doing anything! Every workout, every meal choice, I am inspired to do the best! I even, finally, have my hubby on board! Yesterday, while we were waiting for the elevator in the doctor's office, I found the staircase and we both ran up the stairs...baby steps, I know, but it's baby steps in the right direction! Never before have I ever felt such a resolve to finally get control of my health! I have set goals for myself and set up small rewards for when I hit those goals! I have 1 full year and I will lose this weight for good! And to further inspire me, I have signed up to do a 40 mile bike ride thru NYC with my son in May! I have a busy year ahead, and I will meet my challenges head on!
