New Beginning

Friday, January 10, 2020

I'm starting over. I have been struggling the last few years to manage my weight to flat out ignoring the nagging thought in the back of my head that I need to do something about this. All the while my weight is increasing and my self esteem decreasing. I have found excuses to make myself feel better about why I haven't made the time for me to exercise or even eat right for that matter. However those excuses are just excuses and I know I can do this. I will do this! It's important for me to be healthy, to feel confident, and be there for my husband and children. I'm no longer putting myself on a back burner. I'm coming back to do what has worked for me in the past. Last week my husband and I decided to make changes to lose weight and we have made a little competition out of it to keep it interesting. We will have weekly weigh in and today was the first. I lost 9 lbs this week! I'm so happy with this progress. I look forward to this journey we are on together. Here's to a new healthy beginning!
