Not sure what to call this

Saturday, December 12, 2015

As I sit here at work and reflect on my thoughts from yesterday and today I realize that I have let the lat 6 1/2 years go by and everyday I say I'm going to lose weight. I say to my family that we are going to exercise and start eating healthy and then that never happens. I find every excuse in the book to not eat healthy and not exercise. I always say I'll start tomorrow or on Sunday and I do start on that day but it only lasts a few days. I had lost 30 pds and I felt good about myself and then I lost my dad and gained all of that weight back and then some. I have now officially gained 70 pds since the birth of my daughter 7 years ago and I am not happy about that. What will it take for me to "want" to lose weight.
I told myself 2 years go when I transferred to the University of Illinois that I would not graduate being overweight, that I would lose the 60 (now 70) pds and would look good for my graduation. Well guess what graduation is 5 months away and I haven't lost anything. Well now is the time for me start changing. Today I have decided that I am going to lose this weight if I die trying. Today I have been eating really healthy and have been sweating at work (could be because it is almost 70 degrees outside). I talked to a family member who is over 70 and still does marathons and we decided to do the 5k in the spring together. Well guess what I decided I'm not going to stop there, I am going to sign up for the 10k as well. So today while working I was thinking what better way to keep me accountable than to sign up for these races today and that's exactly what I did! Now that I am signed up I have to exercise and be ready for these races, which according to their website is only 139 days away! So let's see if this will keep me accountable!
