getting started


Thursday, July 11, 2013

Getting started is hard. I'm tired of having a closet full of nice clothes I can wear because I chose ice cream over an apple and chose TV over a walk to the park. I'm going to do it this time even though its hard. I want to be some one I can be proud of and stop hiding behind excuses.

    Thank you for the words of encouragement Time_to_Shine. I know I can't just dive head long into this because if I do I will get overwhelmed and end up quitting. This time around I'm going to take my time and ease into the life style changes that will help me keep off the weight in the long run :)

To WandaGooch, I'm glad you reached out to me. It's hard when you don't want to be seen by anyone. It further stomps on your self esteem. This journey if for us, we are the ones who will benefit from it so we have to keep motivated for our own benefit.

Stay focused, we can do this.

    You can do it one step at a time. I never thought I could walk 2.5 miles, much less start jogging, but I am. Start with one change at a time, and before you know it, you will be reaching your goals.

  I enjoyed reading someone else knows how I feel. I passed up a free trip to CA because I was embarrassed to be seen. I always need a seat extender on the plane, can't walk long because I get out of breath, sick of feeling this way. I started Mon and have done very well so far. Trying not to weigh until I go back to DR.
