It has been a VERY slow start but today I decided it was time to get my butt in gear and do something. It is May 1st, a Saturday why the heck not. Things have been crazy and stressful so my "this is it" day has been postponed several times. I woke up this morning, weighed myself and realized I lost pounds from last Saturday. I have no idea what I did to lose it but I did.
These last couple of months have been real eye openers. My cousin at the age of 38 had a mass stroke, another cousin of mine at the age of 47 died without any real warning. i need to stop saying "I will start and get serious tomorrow" or "Well this week is shot I will start again on Saturday" Tomorrows NEVER come, procrastination I think is my middle name. I don't want to be that fat kid anymore. i don't want my son to be embarrassed (not that he is).
Today I woke up with the realization that I am not going to be healthy if I don't do something about it. I am not going to be happy with myself until I do something about it. I want to be the hot Mom and the wife that everyone says "man you are one lucky guy" (Granted Jerry I think feels he is lucky, hopefully, he is not living with the easiest person in the world) I want the heads to turn but most of all I want to be comfortable with myself, I want to feel that if I am in the room with someone healthier /smaller than I am that I am adequate. I want to feel like a girl not a blob. I want to wear the cute clothes and the sleeveless shirts without feeling my arms are an attraction. Do I want these things bad enough? It is after all much easier to live with the current habits, it is much harder to change the normal routine. 3 pounds in a week of really not doing anything. Can you imagine what would happen if I added 5 days of working out, eating healthier would do.
Today I am dedicating myself to putting my needs before meaniless priorities such as a clean house. I am dedicating myself to following the Weight Watcher guidelines, taking Healthe Trim for the added boost, and working out 5-6 times a week. I may not be able to go to my 20th class reunion (I hope I don't regret that decision) but i am going to look good for myself, and myself only!!
Cheers to new beginnings and dedications!
Ok so I st this website up as a way to kepe me going and knowing in the back of my mind that people are following this. Which knowing that there may be someone out there keeping up with my progress I don't want to fail. That being said......my first blog.
Since my husband is out of work we had to apply for a health insurance policy. Today I received an email stating that our rates would have to go up by $33 a month because I am obese and they would not cover health related issues to obesity. Now I have known that I am obese according to the health charts but when you are dealing with insurance and they tell you they won't cover you because of it, it is a definite wake up call. So that Diet Dr. Pepper I had on my desk that was only 3/4 full, down the drain. This may have been what I needed to get me REALLY moving.
One day at a time but reality has definitely bit me in the butt!!
