Ready for a change
My weight has always been up and down, but back a few years ago I stayed in really good shape for quite some time. Running 5 plus miles a day, swiming, lifting, and most of all, feeling great! I miss that healthy feeling so much. I miss what it did for my mind and my energy. My quality of life was much better, my marriage was better, my career was better, my self esteem was much better and my emotions were much more stable. Our health effects so much more of our lives than we sometimes realize. Having experienced both sides, I'm telling you....being healthy is worth the work! So....today is the day that I have no more excuses. I want to always be honest in my blog so I am saying it out loud now......I am loosing 100 pounds by april 1st 2013!!!!!!!!! I am going to be brave and tell you that right now I weigh 219 lbs. It's the very heaviest I have ever been. I have been struggling with depression, anxiety, health issues etc. because of it. I've decided its time! I want my life back!
During the coarse of this blog we will be making and reaching many goals in many areas if you stick with me. Remember...the whole point of starting this blog was to help each other have the kind of life we truly want, deserve and need in order to be happy. I'm being honest in it because I want you to know that I understand how hard it it because I have BEEN THERE!! I know from experience that being fit feels amazing and it greatly enhances your life inside and out. It can also be a huge spiritual experience if you let it be. You learn alot about yourself when you challenge yourself.
So each week I'm going to set two goals that have to do with helping me achieve my weight loss. Write me and tell me what yours are so we can inspire each other! We can do it! On April 1st I will post my before and after, and I would love if some of you would do the same when you reach yours! Make sure you reward yourself at the end of every week for reaching your goals!!!!!
