Thinking about how long loosing weight will take me to do seems overwhelming. Maybe I am ok being heavy. I am past the age of going to bars and flirting, not to mentioned I am married. By the time I finish I will be even older and maybe I will not care at that point.
That was the conversation in my head, trying to talk myself out of the hard work it takes to loose weight. THEN it reminded me of the day I graduated from college. I was 26 at the time but there was a women that was 60 years old in which I would NEVER forget our conversation. She told me she was 60 and that it took her almost 20 years to get her degree.
Why? I asked. "Why did you end up getting a degree after all this time." She stated, "I could either be a 60 year old women, or I could be a 60 year old women with a degree. I wanted a degree."
I want to be thinner. I can be a 40, 45, 50 year old women or I could be a 40, 45, 50 year old women and look good! I am choosing "look good". Laziness averted, for today... Heading for the treadmill now.
