Here's to new beginnings

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

So, I fell off the wagon. I stopped thinking about what was going into my body and just ate. And now it has landed me further back than where I started. But, wait, there is a bright side. I have picked myself up, dusted myself off, and I am now ready to start again. I am currently reading a book called Winning by Losing by Jillian Michaels. I have owned this book for years, but have never made the time to read it. So, while I was home for spring break last week I threw it in my duffle bag and brought it back to college with me. I am currently on page 30, and I feel like I have already learned so much. Jillian basically says in her book that no can just jump into a healthy living style and succeed. You have to prepare first. So currently, I am in the preparation stage. I am using this week to get ready. I am hoping to be done with the book by Friday or Saturday and begin my new plan on Sunday or Monday.
I just want to take it slow this time and not try to master everything at once. I guess, I thought that losing the weight could be as easy as will power, but I am learning it takes more than just the ability to say no. I need support, guidance, and role models. I need to learn I can't do it all by myself.

    After I wrote this, I went back to reading my book where I found a quote that truly moved me.

    "It's not the end of the world, nor is it the end of your journey toward a better you." - Jillian Michaels

    I just thought I would share that.
