As yet another year passes and I have made no progress on my journey called "Getting Healthier" and vow to do better this year I have to admit I haven't really thought too hard about the "WHY?" do you want to embark on this journey....

So here is what I have been thinking....

I am tired of my feet hurting so bad when I take a simple walk around the block that I can barely walk when I get home to accomplish anything else.

I am tired of my back hurting when I stand at the sink and do dishes or try to stand and do much of anything let alone if I have to bend to get things done.

I am tired of being afraid of falling or having to get down on the floor for something and not being able to get back up.

I am tired of not being able to buy clothes that are cute and not in a specialty store or out of a catalog because I am to large of a size.

I am tired of being out of breath when walking for any distance or playing with my grandchildren.

So I guess I am just tired! But how do I fix it?

I fix it by eating a healthier diet.... for me...

I fix it by starting to get at least ten minutes of physical activity a day.

I fix it by losing ten percent of my current weight by June 1, 2018.

I fix it by trying daily to improve myself in whatever way I possibly can. For I alone am the captain of this journey.

No more excuses.

No more negative thinking about not being able to accomplish this feat.

No more reading about everyone else's success stories and only dreaming about achieving my own.

This is a new year and I am tired of being tired. Time to find some energy and succeed down the path of being awake.

    Well Welcome to Can't do this on my own....You'll absolutely love this group of friends...we're one big happy family with God as our leader, traveling down the river of life. Some of us fall out of the boat every so often but no matter, there's always someone waiting with an outstretched arm, or a new oar..some are longer then others, and we have lifejackets too....So when you hit some rapids, or rocks along the way, I want you to know we've all been there, and some are still there, but we'll get thru the rapids together...Don't feel like you're alone, because you're not...This new Lifestyle will be with you for the rest of your days...and so will the friendships you make.. If you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask, drop me a sparkmail or just jot it do on the boards...we're all in the boat together.
    Love in Christ.
