There will always be a reason to quit!

Friday, October 29, 2010

I have been overweight my whole life and had several reason of why I was "fat" (i.e. my whole family on my dad side is overweight so it's in my genes, it don't matter what eat I will gain weight , i love my favorite food and snacks to much)! I was diagnosed with a skin disease in September of 2003 called scleroderma and a couple other things that affect my circulation (medical reason of not exercising). This disease really limited my ability to exercise (not that I wasn't over weight b4 I got diagnosed) and I had to move to a warmer climate to get better. I moved to AZ and got better was working out and getting my eating habits in order then I lost my oldest daughter in October 2008 and went down hill from there (now I have a emotional reason), I moved back to IA and got sick again (another reason not to change my lifestyle).I will have to cook to separate meals one for my family and one for me (financial reason) Get the picture? There will always be A reason to quit or not start but look at the reasons we have to do it! You feel better health wise and appearance wise, your comfortable in your body, and your not afraid of the "big monster" the scale. Life is what you make it and I'm tired of making it into something I can eat or a mountain I can't climb! I'm making my life into my own personal obstacle course where I run and jump over the reason's that I let keep me down all my life (weight and excuses). Today is a new day for me and I'm back in AZ where I'm healthy (my disease wise and off all my meds). I'm refusing to let my anything stop me from reaching my goal! emoticon

    I had that problem of blaming my parents too. My father wasn't around so that left my mother to raise us on her own with little money and food we were Never aloud to leave any food on own plate or throw any of it away. I remember sitting at the table for hours trying to eat all that food MY GOODNESS it was a lot but I had to do it. So as I got older I keep that mentality of clearing my plate no matter how much food was on it. I started to notice I was placing the same strain on my daughter and I didn't want her to be obese also so I had to stop that rule! It's funny because when my Mom comes and visit she still fuss about my children throwing food in the trash when they had enough! lol WE WILL REACH OUR GOALS! WE have our own family now!

    I understand! For years I was angry at my mom and different people for not accepting me the way I was and saying things and I blamed them for my weight problem, i had to forgive them.

    This was hindering me from my weight loss, so now presently I put to rest all the stuff that has happened to me in the past so I can move on to a healthier future with my husband , and I am accounrable to me for every bite I put in my mouth and every choice i make is mine , no one elses.
