This Time Around....I'm Doing It For Myself!
Sunday, April 12, 2015
This past Monday I started working out again. It wasn't easy, but I simply refuse to quit! I knew that it was time to make a change when I could no longer look at old photographs of myself from a few years ago. Not only was I a few pounds smaller, I also was much happier. When I look at those photos I'm smiling all the time. When I look at photos of myself nowadays I look so sad. There is no joy in my face. There's no excitement. I refuse to live my life this way any longer. I want to feel alive again! I want to feel good about myself!
As I sit here and write I'm on the 7th day of my new program. Only this time around I'm in it for life. This journey will end only when I can no longer breathe. I'm going to do all that I can to regain my confidence and start living again. I'm not letting stress or anything else cause me to quit again. I'm doing this for myself!
I got married three years ago to a wonderful man. I love him dearly. We have a beautiful farm here in Missouri. God has truly been good to me. I must now start being good to myself again.
The past week was a good one. It truly feels great to know that I'm doing all that I can to reach new goals and take care of myself again. I can look at old photos of myself now and not get depressed. Now I just let them motivate me to keep working hard. I refuse to give up!
