Finding my motivation
Friday, August 17, 2007
I heard from my son, Alex. He said he was fine and that he'd lost 19 lbs since joining the army. He has struggled with his weight since a teen just as I did. I know he was thrilled. It really made me proud of him because I know he's giving it his all. That made me think about how poorly I've been doing lately - and why. . . I made up my mind I was going to lose as much of this weight as possible before he graduates in December. I want him to be proud of me too. I've been planning my meals better, making my exercise requirements, and drinking my water better than I have in a long time. I feel a lot happier with myself and not near as tired this week. My focus for now: when I have to make a choice I ask myself is this good for me or not? And try to answer honestly. . . . .
