You are about where I was when I started. For me, it was a lightbulb
. I was sick and tired of feeling like I was tied to the couch or chair. Sick and tired of having no energy. Sick and tired of having to haul myself step by step up the stairs to go to bed. Sick and tired of hurting when I woke up because of all the pressure on my hips or arms or waking up because my hands were asleep because of laying on them.
I just called a Gym close to my house and signed up over the phone, I hadn't even walked into the place. I met with the training folks, you know those free evaluations... and signed up for a trainer 1x a week.
I started logging my food, starting with a shake based plan, moving to Jenny Craig and now on a plan where I do more cooking and kind of a combo of things. But it all starts with the first step into your tennies and out the door.
I set goals for myself and compare all actions that I take against those. Will it help or hurt. If it hurts the goal is it a consequence I can deal with, come back from. Mostly its about taking responsibility for my own actions. I also plan alot more, if I know I'm going somewhere with someone that probably isn't the best choice I get info that I can and make the best choices from what I'm given. I log it and build the rest of the day around it.
I can't say its been easy, or hasn't been time consuming. But the rewards far outweigh the efforts.
