Day by day

Pants too tight
I tried to put on a pair of pants this morning that I used to wear all the time, and they were too tight. Just another reinforcement that I need to make healthier choices.

However, it took me a long time to quit smoking, so I know I just need to keep working at it.

knocked down again by pain
Tired of living with pain. I blogged about barriers before, but this is my biggest one. I don't want to move when I hurt. I don't care what I eat when I hurt. My depression is deep when I hurt.
