NO MORE EXCUSES
Friday, January 04, 2008
I read a post today that got me to thinking. I've been a member of SP for 10 months now and what have I accomplished? Sure, I've made new friends, and I am very grateful for all of my SP friends. But what have I done as for as weight loss goes? NOTHING!
My starting weight is now more than when I started SP. I am very ashamed of myself. I cried when I read the post. This person is almost at goal. Here I am still playing around with excuse after excuse after excuse.
Its time to STOP the foolishness. I once lost 115 lbs. I now need to loose 75-85 lbs depending on my goal. That's a lot! I've sitting around waiting on the weight to miraculously fall off my body. I worked very, very hard to loose the weight before and I must work just as hard to get it off again.
So, today I got up of my behind and started a workout and realized it was too fast for me. I was going to call it quits because my breathing was so labored. Instead, I did the workout that helped me to loose the weight before. Its a little slower. I prayed and asked God to give me the strength to do this. He did! Even though I have a horrible cold, I did it! I know I should probably rest but if I going to do this I need to start NOW. If I can get thru the workout not feeling well then I can do it feeling good.
I've prayed that God help me to be the person I was when I lost weight before................focused, strong, dedicated, and a winner. I feel very good about what I've done today. I've started lifting weights and with the workout and proper eating habits, I should be back at goal weight soon.
I want to be the happy and confident person I once was. I have cried tears of digust, diappointment, saddness, shame, guilt, and failure when I looked at myself in the mirror. I'm crying tears of accomplishment and happiness right at this moment. I'm not going to let everybody else get to goal and leave me behind. I'm going to be right with you all or at least not very far behind.
NO MORE EXCUSES! I want to live, be happy and love myself again! NO MORE EXCUSES!!!!!!
