Starting Again

Monday, May 01, 2017

So, I have been battling my weight for what seems a thousand years. I've committed on and off for probably 3 or 4 years (not a strong commitment obviously), but it has occurred to me for almost the last year, just how out of shape I am. I lost my job in June after 10 years because it was cheaper to pay 2 other people, and couldn't find another job. First time being let go, and at my age, talk about a blow to your ego, then having to admit that your not in shape, double whammy. I have struggled on and off since June to do this. I have been on my Spark page and tracking so in consistently, I think more so I wouldn't feel like I failed. I have lost 45 pounds and that made me super happy! Buying clothes and wearing clothes I never thought I would again, back to having hair done, wearing my make up again and even went back to training dogs. Still, felt like I was letting my family down. Then came the weight gain and trying to lose again. So today, I woke up with the strong determination that I am going to do this....I am going to get in the best shape and health of my life! No more excuses, no more, sadness, or anger, starting today, I am eating right, exercising, taking care of me without guilt. Today, I did a 1 mile bike ride with my GSD, Jynx in 6 minutes and 25 minutes of Yoga. I drank my water and moving on to getting ready for my day. I'm not sure what you are supposed to put in a blog, but for me, it's going to become my very public diary, the good, the bad and the ugly. Hoping that having to be more accountable, I will stay strong and on track.

    your blog can be anything you want it to be. It can lead to accountability with other spark people to help you stay motivated and on track! Great job deciding to not give up. Just a day at a time and a pound at a time and you will get there!
