So We Meet Again - and I'm Not Afraid

Sunday, March 24, 2013

I've never blogged before, but had a friend suggest this was a good way to make yourself accountable. Make it public - put yourself out there - think about what you're doing.

I've been a member of SP for several years, but can never seem to reach my goals. I do very well for the first 10-15#, then BAM off the wagon I go. That isn't getting me any closer to that 70# I need to lose.

Actually, I think I have a fear of getting below 220#. The scale reaches that level and doesn't move. I stop drinking my water, chocolate becomes my new best friend, and there is either work or family that becomes more important than exercise.

NOT THIS TIME!! My daughter has an 8th grade promotion/graduation mid-May in which I get to stand on stage and congratulate and encourage these kids. This, all in front of our local community, family, and friends. I want to stand up there and know my daughter is as proud of me and my accomplishments as I am of hers.

So as I begin this journey again, I am not afraid. I'm not afraid of failure. I'm not afraid of success. I'm not afraid of disappointing myself. I'm not afraid of disappointing my family. I'm not afraid of making sure I have "me" time. I'm not afraid emoticon
