Life is an Adventure

Tuesday, November 12, 2019

Life is certainly an adventure and I really cannot complain about my life. It is a good life.

I am successful in so many areas of my my life, but I have struggled when it comes to staying at a healthy weight.. emoticon ...... ok,,,,,, I have failed, over and over again,,,,, for years. YES, yes, yes, I WANT TO GIVE UP! emoticon Maybe this is the way I am meant to be,,,, struggling to fit in a both at a restaurant .... worried that the seat belt won't fit,,,,,, my poor feet hurt because of the weight that I have gained.

Yes, I can blame it on my work,,,, for two years I was driving 200 miles a day,,,, emoticon ,,,, every single day! But the bottom line is that my weight, my health is MY responsibility ........ There is not running away from that truth! ugh! I do want to list all of the excuses as to why I am here again but I accept that this is all on me. I made the choice to over eat, use the food to comfort me, not exercise and chose the wrong things to eat.

However, life is an adventure, and losing weight is my adventure right now! I want to be in great shape when I retire,,,,, in order to enjoy life ,,,, I want to be the very best that I can be when I retire in a few years. But to do that, I have to give up my old habits ...... I have to focus on how I am treating my body ..... I have to make good choices.

I am NOT giving up on myself. I am determined to see this through for one year ..... and to be brutally honest with myself. The only way to make a change in my life is to change my choices ......... and that is what I am going to do.

They say that a journey of a thousand miles starts with the first steps..... emoticon ..... well, today I am taking my "first steps" again.

Have a wonderful week everyone emoticon

    Welcome back friend! Good for you for not giving up on yourself. You can do this! Just take it slow and sure. Just one step at a time and give yourself enough time to really embrace each new health habit that you take on. This is for your life...so that you can enjoy a looooooong retirement - and one that isn't hampered by numerous health setbacks. So I'm glad you're here and glad you're going to give this your best shot! emoticon emoticon emoticon
