quick poll question

Friday, April 26, 2013

yesterday I finished the last or the fitness quick polls, and today started the motivation ones

What is the #1 goal I hope to accomplish this year? there were a number of fill in the blank choices and several are high on my list but number one has to be "lose weight and become more fit". Every day I am making choices that help me journey towards that goal, but deep in my heart I want to be firmly established in "100-ville" I have not been below 200 lbs since pre pregnancy- 28 years ago- and hold no delusions of ever being able to wear my wedding gown again.. every pound I get closeer to 200 I feel a spring in my step, I look for was to sit and stand talller, I feel more confident and energetic and I like who I see in the mirror. I dread visits from my sabotuer (mother) who can not stuff enough food in me face and does not accept the word no at any time- our visits are strained because of it- As an adult, my response to her now is, " unless my weight falls into the suboptimal bmi range she has no right to comment or critcize my diet and fitness choices", many of my weight and health issues are directly tied to habits learned as a child dependant on her choices.. Enough of my ramble and rant. May always sees my parents come for a weeklong visit at their conveniencs ( this year May happens to have 3 of my heaviest weeks of shift rotation) I'm already reinforcing my armour, and trying to remember that they won't alway enjoy health that allows them the freedom to travel. My journey to health is a choice that I make every day of the year

    I do admire you, your spirit & your insight.
    I believe your decision to allow your parents to visit when they chose is wise.
    They will not always be available, so try to focus on their positive attributes.
    Good luck.
