Making the Change for Me!
I know, I know. I’ve said it before and well, I fell off the wagon. And then I said it again, and fell off again. This time, I have money invested and well, now I HAVE TO DO IT.
I’m going on a weight-loss journey. I’m 38 and I am severely overweight.
Wow. I’ve never written that before.
I’ve been ok with it way too long and now, I’m 2 years away from turning 40. YIKES! 40! The big 4-o! And I don’t want to be fat when I blow out those candles. I don’t want to be skinny either. I know where I want and should be when it comes to size and weight. My personal goals are realistic and I’m trying to be practical about to too.
I joined a boot camp and I’m on day 4. I just got the feelings back into my mamma-jamma thighs, I can’t raise my arms above my head because of the pain and I almost fell at Walmart because my legs just gave way.
But I’ve done it for 4 days. Yay me, right?
I don’t feel good yet. Obviously I don’t see a difference either. I’m hungry, hurting and I have a pounding headache from not drinking coffee.
I want to feel excited about all this, but to be honest, I’m scared that I will fail. I’m worried about not being able to afford my separate menu from the rest of the family. You guys, I’m not happy right now.
But, I know I need to do this.
I can do this.
I will do this.
I just need to somehow find a way to overcome the doubt that haunts me every single minute.
