I'm horrified by a picture of me that was posted on Facebook yesterday. The video, taken in 1999, shows me at my highest weight. The video was a Champions of Industry video hosted by Pat Summerall and it boasted the company I was working for. I retired from that company in September 2013, after the company was purchased by big business and run into the ground. The company was just split off from the parent company, which is awesome, and the original name restored. I'm thrilled for the company, and the people who are still working there, but don't like how I look in the video. I wish I could do a cut and paste and insert pictures of the new me there!
I'm thrilled that I have successfully lost my weight, and kept it off for 8 years.
I am the only one who can do this for myself.
I make the choice of what I put in my mouth.
I make the choice to exercise daily.
I make the choice to have a positive frame of mind.
I make the choice to be healthy!
Goals for today:
~ read my mantra
~ 80 oz water
~ 17,000 steps
~ 25 flights of stairs
~ keep an open mind
~ journal every bite
~ smile at least once an hour
~ learn something new and remember what I learned
~ eat a fruit or vegetable with every meal and as one snack today
~ laugh out loud today
~ focus on this lifestyle I have chosen for myself and don't sweat the small stuff
