I have a daily insight calendar and today's quote I wanted to share:
"You should make preparations so that, even if you did die tonight, you would have no regrets." Dalai Lama.
Every time I think of how long I've been on this journey, how little I have come (weight wise), and how far I could be if I put more effort in, I regret not taking more time for me and getting my act together. Enough excuses, enough wasted time. Taking a little time to eat right and workout will mean YEARS added to my life. A 23 year old should not STILL be over 300 lbs. Yes, I've lost 40 lbs ish, but still. That was years ago! I lost more than that! I was down to 277! Why am I around 303 now?!? No excuses, this is ridiculous. Multiple family members have been pre-diabetic, then turned in to full-blown diabetes. I always say that if I was pre I would change everything to prevent full-blown. But why wait for the diagnosis? Why can't I prevent pre? Why have I abused my body so much that I no longer have a gallbladder? This is stupid insanity and a waste of my time, killing myself with food when I could be living! No more wasting my life, no more living regretting not changing sooner. I am changing NOW, not tomorrow, not next month or next year. Not even later today! RIGHT NOW! A shower (since I just finished step class), then a healthy snack and skating. I will bring my lunch and snacks to work (no takeout!). I repeat my day today over and over until I am at a healthy, livable weight!
