Well Here I Go Again!
Saturday, January 03, 2015
It appears that I have not been consistent in this journey. Seems like last year about this time I did exactly what I am doing right now. I do not know what tomorrow holds for me but I do know that I cannot continue to exist in this condition. I must make a change. My health will make changes for me if I do not make changes first. My back and my feet and my legs are beginning to protest at carrying the extra weight. My age is beginning to take it's toll on my body. I fear that if I do not get this weight under control now, my physical condition will make it impossible and then I will be stuck. The decision will be out of my hands. I have to do this for me. I am NOT doing this for my husband! I am not doing this for a wedding or for a class reunion or for a dress or a pair of jeans. I am not doing this so I can play with my grandchildren (although these are all wonderful reasons and benefits to the results) I am doing this for ME! I am doing this for my own physical relief. I do NOT want to feel the way I feel anymore. I do not want to walk the way I walk anymore. I do NOT want people to look at me the way they do anymore. I have had a thin body in my youth and I remember what it was like. I want that again. Please, help me to stick with this when I am weak. Remind me of this post when I am weak. I am NOT old, but this weight is making me feel old and making me act old. I am not ready to slowdown or sit down and wait for death to come to me. I am not ready for a rocking chair on the porch. I want to go hiking, biking, and swimming and I want to be active. I have to start out slow and work my way up to an active lifestyle. So here are my goals:
1. lose 10lbs in 2 months (Jan. - Feb.)
2. 195 lb. - 185 lb.
3. To start do 5 minutes AM on Gazelle & 5 minutes PM on Gazelle
4. Do a daily workout yet to be selected from the internet OR Sparkpeople.com
5. Do daily devotions
That is it for now.
