I thought it would be fun and get me into blogging again if I did some writing exercises. I found a list of weight related questions to get me started. Feel free to answer in a comment.
Question: Where do you think you would be right now had you been a healthy weight your entire life? The same place, in the same relationships, with the same life experiences? Or in a completely different life? Will losing weight change your life situation?
Answer: In all honesty, I think my life would be different if I had been a healthy weight all my life. It kept me insecure and in a bad marriage for many many years. It held me back from going places and doing things. However, I can't regret any of that because it led me to where I am now. I have an amazing husband who I might not have met if my life were different. Life will change I think after I reach goal (and I WILL reach goal) in that I plan on being more active and outgoing with my family. They will see my healthy choices and changes and respect me for taking the right path.
I still have in the forefront of my mind, that conversation between my husband and I about how I let my past control me. I am determined to not to let that be the case any longer. It's taken a bit of on again/off again but I think I'm headed in the right direction now. I am counting carbs and being more active. I have lost a little bit of what I gained and VERY happy about that. I'm excited to see what my weigh-in is on Monday. Every move I make is a conscious effort to make better choices and to be in control. This is MY life.
