There are so many things that I want out of life, but what I don't want is to look back reflect and regret. I have had enough of that. I am afraid that my lack of dedication and ambition is a thorn in my side at this point, and I want to change it.
I have been increasing my exercise and activity as well as my water. I am working to become a fitter and better me. I want to and need to lose this weight so that my dreams of having children of my own can come to fruition. I need to be healthy and would hate for my weight to stand in the way of that.
I also want to increase the years that I have left, and also eat right to help my body to function at it is designed to. I don't want to risk having issues to my health that would impact my future. After all the hard work I put in now, I plan to enjoy it by enjoying my retirement, and if I am lucky, retire early....that is my plan!! So I need to start making an aggressive investment in my health. I haven't lost the weight since the beginning of the year that I wanted to. I don't know why I am not doing this the way I would like.
I am starting to review what has worked for me in the past and bring back some of those practices. This should help me get back on track. Granted when I lost the weight before, my responsibilities were limited, and I was single so there was a difference in my obligations and the time and effort I could invest in me. It was easier, I had no one else to answer to. Now I have to figure this out at this point in my life. That is what I am trying to do.
So I am tackling the burden to get rid of the excuses. I hope that this journey will yield results I can live with, and results I can be proud of. Here I go, digging a little deeper into the emotional parts of my weight.
