One More Time
Wednesday, January 07, 2009
I lost nearly 100 pounds about 5 yrs ago but regained most of it after I stopped working out. So like Oprah, here I am one more time doing it again. Today marks exactly one year since I started my last (and final) weight loss journey and to date, I have lost 60-65 pounds. I feel great, I look better and exercise is a welcome part of my life. I get up every morning to work out before work so there are no excuses. No scheduling conflicts (nothing else going on at 5 am), no kids (all grown and gone) and no significant cost (besides my home equipment there is a complimentary gym in my apartment complex). The only thing that could possibly stop me is ME and I have learned to get out of my own way. I am determined to make it stick this time by taking it one day at a time and when I screw up, I erase it out of mind, I remind myself that it is only one 24 hour period and I can get back on track tomorrow.
