One Decision can change your life.
I'm making that decision today. I met my weight loss goal in Oct. of 2009 losing 52 pounds, and today its March 22, 2013.
My scale as of today reads 170 pounds up 15, but the damage is even worse. Since the summer I've been eating pretty much junk and stopped exercising, I've gotten flabby, lost my tone so I look even bigger, my clothes are getting tight, and I generally just feel blah.
I recall being in my healthy groove and how amazing it felt. I was always energized and happy and had such a sense of purpose and accomplishment. The fun of competing with myself and surprising myself with fitness gains. At one point I ran a 10 k, now I'm back to the start...I'd probably just drop unconscious if I tried to run for 5 minutes straight.
There are many things going on in my life right now that are challenging...the hotel I managed burned down last year taking away my income and finding work in an economically depressed area is proving to be very difficult.
My weight just ads to the angst. So I finally decided...I can't magic the hotel back, I can't just conjure up a new job, or make money fall from the heavens...But...I can choose to be happy...
I can choose to be grateful for all the wondorous blessings in my life and their are so many...and I can choose to take charge of my health and weight and get myelf back where I want to be.
Its time...I'm focused, I'm ready...and I have made a decision. I am going to lose 30 pounds and feel amazing both phsycially and emotionally. I'm posting this publically so that everyone knows I made this decision and I'm going to make it happen.
Here is to a new and improved, healthier version of me.
