I've been away for awhile, and I'm back again. While I was gone, I moved across the country and started a PhD program. I love my new life, and so far I don't regret it. Although I'm 8 pounds less than my heaviest weight, I decided to reset all of my trackers and start over again, mainly because I hadn't logged in since July, but also because I was recently diagnosed with high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I cannot go on like this anymore. I feel like I'm in a great place in my life, and now my health is still an issue. Well, I'm not going to complain about it. I'm just going to fix it. There are many reasons why I became overweight in the first place, but I will not make excuses. I have the here and now, and I know that I have the power to determine my future health by losing weight and exercising. I just need to do it. And every time I tell myself I don't feel like it, I'll just remind myself that this weight isn't going to come off just by wishing. I'm not a stranger to hard work, so now it's time to make my health my number one priority...well, maybe number 2, behind school, but if I'm not healthy, I won't be my best for school either, so it needs to be number 1. From now on, it is.
