Well here I am. Not exactly where I want to be or where I planned to be at this point. No excuses and no looking back. I need to start anew today. I am sorry to say that I have had a rough year and have gained a lot of my weight back. Today I have determined to be a new beginning. I know, I know, the holidays are upon us. Who starts now? But its as good a time as any and maybe I won't gain anymore during that time period.
It gets harder and harder to lose as we get older because our metabolism gets less and less. But it has gotten way out of hand. My energy level has gotten lower and I don't like it one bit.
I know I can do this. I have done it before. Before I get back to my original weight I need to nip it or throw a hammer over it.
Start out every day with my time with the Lord. He is my strength and I can't do it without His help.
Get back to the gym. I have been very lax in this lately. Heavens, I work there. I have had trouble with one foot lately with pain so I have just let it slide. I need to push through it!
Be very aware of what is going in my mouth. I want to say I will keep track of calories but I am not sure that will always happen so I will not hinder myself by saying that.
Journal my progress. That way it will be progress and not failure.
I need your support also. If every once in awhile you want to ask me how I'm doing, or if I am on track that would be great.
So here I go: onward and downward (on the scale that is) I hope to have this off by the end of April.
