Why Why Why? We all ask our selves this question... for me I get lost in the question while searching for an answer. Truth is the answers are always there in front of me... I think I am just to afraid to see them. Exercise and eating right....hmmmmm rocket science right? The reason it is so hard for me to keep losing weight or even maintaining is because I am a creature of habit...person of comfort... bottom line I am lazy... mentally mostly...ok physically too! Truth is you can not have one with out the other. I get that...hence the title....WHY does it have to be so hard? My conclusion is we learn from our hard work and devotion, how much we learn is up to us... I have learned a great deal... I know if I stop exercising and eating right I gain weight back...(was down to 260...back up to 275) I know I use break time to relax and eat....haha... busy life... stress...tired...frustration... I use anything to stop myself from continuing at times....again...WHY? Fear is mostly why I stop...fear of dealing with everything I hide inside this fat suit... It is time to STOP ASKING WHY??? IT IS TIME TO MAKE CHANGES AND MOVE FORWARD... It is up to me to get started again... the hardest part about starting over is the guilt...if only I had stuck to it I could be at this weight by now....ARRRRG! Time to stop doing that and just DO IT! Time to stop feeling Embarassed about my body and worrying about how I look to others... How I look is not who I am...

"You are at a crossroads. This is your opportunity to make the most important decision you will ever make. FORGET YOUR PAST. Who are you now? Who have you decided you really are now? Don't think about who you have been. Who are you now? Who have you decided to become? Make this decision consciously. Make it carefully. Make it powerfully."
-Anthony Robbins

    SORRY it's taken me so LONG, but CONGRATULATIONS on your wedding!! You looked absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!! I hope your day was as fun as mine was! I had mine videotaped, too, so now, even our kids have seen Mommy and Daddy getting married! :D My Dad could walk so much better then! lol So could I!! It was 15 years ago now?!?!?!!! I'm still not that much heavier (or so my wedding dress still tells me-----I didn't think it had extra folds to hide more of me......) Hehehe I've worn the dress a couple of times for Halloween - once with a Gorilla type of mask on under the veil, and I won the best costume at the party I attended!! LOL "Monsters have feelings, too!" I claimed! :D
