Steady Progress & It Feels Good

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

It amazes me on how determind I am verses 3 years ago. I'm stoked in the name of Jesus and I'm thrilled beyond measure. Sure, I'm not going to sit here and tell you this has been a piece of cake because it has not. In fact it has been down right horrible at times trying to stay on track and do what's right for my health and overall well being. My only regret is that I wish I had had the revelation back then instead of now. In any event I'm not going to cry over spilt milk. I'm living in the here and now and the now is kicking butt and taking no prisoners. The hardest thing for me is exercise. That heffa and I don't like each oher and have fought a constant fight for years. One day she finally got the best of me, she had me in a choke hold and then threw me down and said you are going to listen to me if it's the last thing you do. Well, relunctantly I listen and now we have become friends. Oh trust me when I say she still gets an argument from me from time but the end result is we manage to get the task done. Anything to shut her up, you know what I mean, lol. The fascinating part is I see changes almost every day in myself. I'm doing things I hadn't done in years and let me tell ya that feels real good. So I can finally say I'm on the right path and nothing will take me from it. Just felt like sharing what I'm feeling and hope it serves to let those of you who feel like this struggle is hopeless. Take it from someone who has been there....It is not. Keep pushing forward and keep a positive outlook. Remember Rome was not build in a day and losing weight will not happen overnight. You will get there, you will reach your goal if you keep pushing, stay strong and determind. I've turned my BEAST MODE on and broke the handle, no going back to the old me!!!

    You are so funny. I agree with you myself. It is hard to get out there, but you do have to fight with yourself to get it done. It is rough sometimes, but that battle is one I have to fight each day. Most times I win, but sometimes I lose because I get lazy and tired. emoticon

    That was so deep that if I was home I would have gotten up and went to the gym to workout. Very motivating and humorous too (that heffa lol). Glad you've found that place in life where you're on it and feeling good about it. I think it's something we have to grow into. I feel that same way. I've determined that no matter what obstacles, illness/injury comes my way I will not drop the ball and totally quit. I am keeping count of my journey and I look forward to the blog post that says Day #365...means I've stuck around and did it for a whole year. No matter how much I've lost at that point I see my journey as successful. Thanks for the reminder today and keep at it - I'll see you at the maintenance line.
