Tired of being the "heavier one". Despite just delivering my newborn, I am on a MISSION to get to where I've always longed to be, at a healthy weight. Forget all of the people who say...but you look good with what you have...if you lose too much weight you'll look anorexic...but you just had a baby...I say...STOP YAPPIN'...NO MORE EXCUSES!
I have endured some very trying times in life that should have taken me OUT! Instead, I chose to keep my FOCUS...Head up, Chest out...FORWARD MARCH!
So, here I am...looking at yesterday...looking at my past...referring to it so that I can make better decisions today and tomorrow...daring not to be a repeat offender.
How many times will I put on some pants and take them off because I feel or look disgusting?
How many times will the family get together and I am the "heavier one"?
How many times will I go shopping and watch everyone shop because I am waiting until I lose weight to shop?
How many times will I continue to be paralyzed at the thought of "body shots" when my hubbie is taking photographs?
How many times will I look at the dresses in my closet with tags still on them that I was able to wear a year ago?
SO YESTERDAY...Are those questions!!!!!!!!!!!
Today is my day...RIGHT NOW is MY TIME! It is really ALL ABOUT ME! I am worth every second that I think about my health and my perception of me.
I have been very successful in various areas of my life. I am prepared to begin this LIFESTYLE JOURNEY to becoming "FIT FOR LIFE".
I can just see me now...CONFIDENT in the TOTAL ME! The ENTIRE PACKAGE!
So here's to TODAY! The old me is SO YESTERDAY!
