Day 1 - Part 2 (7 years later....)

Tuesday, November 28, 2017

Why am I doing this? Why am I making these changes? I feel sluggish, fat and tired all of the time. My stomach hurts – my boobs hurt – all of the time. I get winded just walking up the stairs and down the hall to my office. I have gained 25 pounds in the past year, and I do not like the huge bulge of fat that is around my mid-section or how fat my face and neck have become. My anxiety is through the roof, and I have become alcohol dependent in order to cope. I’m afraid that if I continue this way, I will become an addict. My daughter calls me fat, and while they won’t admit it, I think my kids are ashamed of how I look. I’m ashamed of how I look and feel. I’m a newlywed, and I do not feel sexy around my husband. I hate to look at pictures of myself, and I hate to go clothes shopping. Most importantly, if I don’t start making changes now, I will not live to see my future grandchildren grow up.

I've tried going down this road in the past, and while it works for awhile, I always seem to go back to bad habits. 3 years ago I power walked a half marathon. Now I can barely walk down the road. Something has to give....something has to change. And that time is now!

    You have done it before, the journey is full of peaks and valleys. You're just in the valley and have to climb your way back up to the peak. Start by making small changes in diet and exercise. Tracking your food accurately will really help. We often eat more than we estimate. Good Luck, I know you can weather this storm.
