This Is My Year!
Thursday, January 03, 2013
I've been claiming it since last year! This is my year! I turn 40 years old at the end of August and I am looking forward to it! I'm planning a big Burlesque-themed party and I plan to wear a corset!!! But how can I do that in the body I'm in now? Things have to change.
I've tried and failed a hundred times, but I'm back to try again. God is giving me another chance and I'm taking it! I know I have to become more motivated and more accountable to myself. I know its not just about talking, but about doing. Sitting around looking at other people's stories for motivation is not enough... I actually have to do the work!
I've lost nearly 40 pounds since I started SP in 2009. I hadn't realized that until I went to update my current weight. I'd started at 318 and am now at 280. I could have been at my goal weight by now if I had just continued to do what I needed to do. I'm not putting myself down, I'm just being honest. I have to be accountable for my actions (or inactions).
So here am I trying again and this time I will succeed!
