Day 1: Beginning a lifestyle change
Thursday, April 11, 2013
Today as i left the doctors office, I realized that if I didn't make a change soon, then something bad was bound to happen. I decided that I can't be selfish anymore, and need to make a positive change to my lifestyle in the efforts to stay around for my young children. They don't deserve to lose their mother because of making bad health-wise choices.
I am trying to find new ways to motivate myself because past attempts to lose weight and to quit smoking haven't been the best of experiences. I need to change my mindset so that I can succeed this time. As with anything, adjusting to this type of change can be difficult for most people; I am no different. I need to find new ways to remain motivated to continue to stick with this plan though! So far my husband and I are going to work as a team to get the weight off together; however, having a larger support group for the both of us will also be something that we are open to.
