I look at where I was last year at this time and I was just getting started on my healthful lifestyle...I did great until mid October when I had both of my daughters move back home. Nothing like having your home invaded by 4 adults and 2 little ones, a Great Dane and a Pomeranian. Did I mention I lived in an apartment that was almost 1000 sq ft. Within a month 2 adults the 2 little ones and the Pom were moved out and in to their own home. Then there was a kitten added to the mess. We had a death in the family and I just decided that it was impossible to continue the clean happy lifestyle. I know it makes ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE. Life is crazy so make it more crazy by gaining back all but 5-10 lbs. SO.......here I am back at the bottom of the process.
I can say that I have learned that making outrageous promises or proclamations are the first step toward failure. I am trying to avoid that pit. I pray that I will have the courage to say no to myself when it comes to making unhealthy choices. I find that the older I get the harder it is to get motivated. I turned 55 on June 6th I have had a very very difficult time with depression. For the first time in my life I felt like I was on the down hill slide and that I had wasted my life. I am still fighting with this and the longer I put off going to the gym and getting my routine back on track or don't put healthy food in my refrigerator the harder it is to kick the depression.
I am back and plan to stay.
