Looking in the Mirror

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

It started with me eating more than necessary and then a conscious decision to not worry about my calories since I am fat anyway. With the weight gain came the tired feeling and decision not to exercise - besides it's hot outside.

That was about 2-3 weeks ago. Today, I decided to face up to my decisions and get on the scale. The number stopped at 190. I haven't been at that weight since I first found sparkpeople and signed up.

Thankfully, I have read one person's blog about how perseverence is the key. I have no idea how many times I have started over, but I have already made the decision that I am doing it again. I started today with just making smarter choices and moving more. I am sitting in my recliner surfing sparkpeople.com preparing my meal plans for the rest of this week and planning my workouts.

I feel like apologizing to everyone for being such a slacker and not holding up my end. Instead, I am looking in the mirror and facing myself. I am owning up to my choices. Today is a new day and I will see my goal weight of 160. So today, I have been successful and I am proud of my tiny baby steps I have made in the right direction.
