And here I am in the thick of it all, having to live one day at a time and working hard to stay on track...
Sometimes I wish my life were like a movie where the camera could do a montage and music would play and time would pass quickly so I don't have to live through the daily aspects of doing all of this. It is hard sometimes.
I sometimes hate that even if I exercise well today, I have to get up and exercise well again tomorrow. And that even if I eat well tonight, in the morning I have to eat healthy again... it is hard sometimes.
But I'm here. And I'm working on it. I didn't exercise yesterday, so I will add to my routine today. And I ate too much last night, so I will eat better today. And hopefully the better times are more than the weaker moments...
I'm working at it. It is hard right now, but I'm trying to stick to it.
Because ultimately I do want to lose weight and be healthier. I want to get off all the meds I take and be less tired all the time. I want to play more actively with my kids and want them to see me having a healthier life style. I want to live my fullest for as long as I can rather than living a more confined and less active lifestyle as I do now. It is hard right now, but I am ding it.
Thanks for reading my blog. It helps me to write it out sometimes, makes it a little bit easier, and it helps to know that some folks out there know what it feels like.
So thanks, I appreciate all of you!
Smiles, Mo

    Mo, I guess that is why they say one day at a time and for many or us it can be one hour at a time. I wish there was a time I didn't need to count calories but I think I will always have to stay on top of it. I don't want to be sick to be the reason I lose weight or not be able to exercise.... so I will continue to take one day at a time.

    Mo your willingness to walk the steps and eat healthy is true motivation. Don't get discouraged because when discouragement wins then it is hard to keep fighting. Stay motivated by keeping your goals in mind and remembering they are achievable through continued dedication.

    I wish that it would be easier to get where we are gong. I agree it is not fair that giving up the treats is not an immediate 5 pounds gone. Walking a long way should be worth more pounds too.

    But, there is something to be said for the little nonscale victories like: Lose pants, knowing my appetite is getting smaller, knowing that I can walk further and faster, plus realizing that slowly I am choosing to like healthier foods.

    Your changing slowly but, you are still changing. Keep moving forward. We are going to make it.
