I'm Not Done Living Yet!
Wednesday, August 22, 2012
In recent months I’ve realized how significantly the quality of my life has been impacted by my weight. My stamina is low, it’s difficult to walk from building to building at work, my alertness is waning, my memory is shot, I have difficulty standing up from my chair, my feet hurt all of the time, and I feel like I’m falling apart. Because of how I feel, I’m just not enjoying life like I want to.
My motivation for sticking with a nutrition and exercise plan is that I’M NOT DONE LIVING YET! I want the stamina, energy, and health that will enable me to do the things I want to do. I’m interested in accomplishing more goals and pursuing new job opportunities; to do that, I need to be on my “A” game. My desire to lose 125 pounds over the next year extends beyond how I look and the first impression I make. I need to lose weight because my effectiveness has decreased along with my energy level and mental acuity.
So I’m committed to sticking with my exercise and nutrition goals in order to breathe new life into this old body. I’m only two weeks into my new resolve, but so far so good. I already feel better and am getting out of chairs more easily. I think I’m going to be successful this time around.
