I'm doing better since the last time I wrote. Still in a bit of a funk but I think refocusing on my reasons for exercising and changing my eating habits has helped. Yes, I want to lose weight and yes I want to look better. But there are so many more reasons that I'm doing this. I want to be able to hike and roller blade and maybe take up skiing (I think I would like it). I want to be able to ride roller coasters and not worry that I'm going to fit in the seats. I want to be able to walk up the hill and up the stairs to class without feeling like I might die and sweating and breathing heavy. I my reasons for saying yes or no to invitations to have nothing to do with how I look. I want to live a long, full, healthy life.
I just get overwhelmed sometimes because it seems like if I don't do everything 100% then I don't see results, which isn't really true. I just expect to see instant change when I am working so hard. Of course, in the beginning, the change was more noticeable. But now that I am starting to get more fit, the changes are more subtle. I still have a long way to go. I am just going to focus on one step at a time.
Oh, and I rewrote my rewards on my front info page. I think they are more in line with what I am trying to do now. Let me know what you think!
I am the big girl on the right. This was taken in early June I believe.
