The last "day 1"

Tuesday, August 30, 2011

Like so many others I've struggled with my weight and image for majority of my life. I can always remember wanting to be smaller or wanting to have a flatter tummy. A few days ago I looked at some old pictures of myself and could see the sadness in my face. I felt fat, I felt like i was always the biggest one in my "crowd". The thing that upset me most looking at those old pics is that today I would pay the have that body I use to have.
Those old pics helped me to realize that i will probably never be 100% happy about my image. However if i continue to be lazy and not do anything to make myself look and feel better, 10yrs down the line I will be in this very same position again. So today I vow to be The Last "1st day". From here on out I promise to:
-Appreciate my body and work hard for a change
-Remain fit; exercising until it becomes a part of my routine
-Eating healthy; being aware of what i put in mouth
-Focus on ME more; I must be happy with myself to really enjoy those I love most
-Endure bumps in the road as is; get over the bump and keep on moving
-Use all tools available to me; forums, workout equip, knowledge, support

    Wow... I can relate to this blog as well as your one about running ! How often I have looked back at old pictures and wondered why I was unhappy about how I looked...and wished that I looked like that NOW !!
    I think we have to just learn to appreciate what we are .... and just work to be our healthiest best. I now am thankful to my body for things other than weight issues... it has never broken a bone, never had surgery, lets me play tennis, golf, ride a bike, walk and KINDA run... There are many who cannot for various reasons and would be thrilled to be able to say this at ANY weight !
    And you are absolutely right that the tools here are a great tools ...and we can use them to help us get over those bumps !!
