This is for me. I'm not concerned about others reading it. This is for me.
I'm 5'2" and 225 lbs. I don't feel fat. This is the first time I've admitted my weight out loud. I won't even tell my husband my true weight. It's embarrassing. I don't feel out of shape, but when I look in the mirror I'm always surprised by the person that's looking back at me. That is me? I'm really taken aback by the belly that hangs in the front. Wow, where did that come from? I do have some back issues. More of muscle strain and pulls. I can say confidently that the belly has everything to do with it. Boy this is hard to say out loud. Come to think of it, I don't think I've really admitted my weight and disappointment of my body image even to my self. Whew, this is hard.
Day 1 - I've started out well. My breakfast was healthy and tasty. I didn't walk this morning. I couldn't seem to get moving. It was a busy 4th of July weekend watching my granddaughter, my granddoggy, and my little dog. On top of catching a cold over the weekend, losing my voice, and throwing my back out last week, I'm surprised I survived the weekend lol.
I will cut myself some slack. I won't guilt myself because I didn't walk. Today is one bite at a time day. God permitting, I will walk this evening. If I don't, my dog will let me know lol
I feel confident today. I feel motivated. I can do today.
Today's random quote. Very fitting for day 1. How did He know
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you" declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
