It is silly at best to wish to be 21 again, to hope for the return of that toned body, tight skin, sparkling eyes, and boundless energy. It is a waste of time to wish I'd appareciated youth more when I had it. What I want to do now, what I wish to do, what I need to do is accept who I am, where I am, and welcome my present and my future with open arms and an open mind.

I am so tired of making excuses, I'm tired of dieting, I'm tired of starting over, I'm tired of talking about it, reading about it, and VERY tired of my half-hearted attempts at it. With a new month I've made a new commitment and, I will admit, this time it feels different. Maybe I'm just tired but I really do feel different since I came to some realizations tonight as I typed out my blog. There is a clarity of mind that has been missing before. This time really IS going to be different.

Twenty-one will never rear her lovely head again. But fifty-four can still be good, even great IF I take care of me, stop making excuses, work hard, be honest, and be consistent. I look forward to tomorrow. I look forward to who I'm becoming.
