I couldn't even get through the first set of 17 days on the 17 Day Diet. I am a loser, and not in the good way! I have decided I just can't do diets. I'm done. It's too much for me to have to follow a set menu, let alone shop for it and cook it. It's just too stressful.
You know what else is stressful? Looking in the mirror and seeing a 45 year old morbidly obese woman who can barely manage keeping the house relatively clean, let alone go out and ENJOY LIFE. THAT'S stressful!
I have been obese or morbidly obese since I was around 8 years old. That's too dang long! And I don't feel like I've EVER really enjoyed life. Well, I WANT to enjoy life! I want to enjoy time with my grandbabies! I want to be able to take a little walk up the street without hurting and getting winded. I'd like to be able to actually RUN for once in my life!!!!
So what am I going to do, if I'm done dieting???
I'm going to learn to eat much more healthily and get off my dang butt and exercise!!!! That's what!!
Today, I opened up my brand new Ninja Ultima blender that I got for Christmas, and made my family a fruit smoothie. And I'm going to start having them every day. I also went out and walked for 5 minutes on the treadmill that's been in the garage for almost a year. I know 5 minutes isn't much, but it's all I could do without making myself hurt really bad, which would probably be my excuse not to do it tomorrow. So, small steps!
And NO MORE DANGED DIETS!!!! Life changes! Yes! Perfection? Probably not. But if I can stick with healthy changes 99 percent of the time, then I think I'll be ok!
