It's not getting me down, but my motivator

Last night, I woke up at 1am with my back screaming at me. So, I got up and did yoga. Oh, the yoga stretches felt wonderful, but one thing stuck out: my belly. It kept getting in the way.
Anyone who has ever had a big belly can attest, stretching to touch your toes almost becomes impossible, because that belly just won't let you. And I can tell you this, if it were not for that belly of mine, I know I could touch my toes. I am still flexible.
So, I started thinking about it last night. I had a few setbacks over the past few months, and they are now in the past. It is time to get my body moving. So, that is just what I'm going to be doing, and I guess you can kinda say I did start it yesterday (or last night) with the yoga. I drove a distance yesterday, and it kind of made my back stiff, which is why the yoga stretches.
The thing is that despite being fat, I know that I don't need to be here, but I know that my body doesn't need to feel "fat" either. People my size can do the impossible, too. Just look at these women doing these yoga poses!!! I mean, I can do some, but some of these I can't! But maybe I can work my way to them!
So, tomorrow night, I'm going to make my effort to go to the gym and do that water walking. The weekend of the 8th, I'm going on a wilderness retreat by myself, so there will be hiking. I'm getting myself healthy. And I'm doing it now.
