Facing Forward

Try Again

Pretty much everyone knows that I struggle with my weight.  After a few years where my weight seemed to be stable and sometimes headed downwards I have begun to gain weight again.  I know it has a lot to do with my poor eating habits and my lack of exercise so in order to head off my mid-life crisis I’m beginning to take action now.

The first thing I did was to rejoin a gym I had cancelled a few months back.  Luckily for me no one really joins the gym in the summer so I went back at a huge discount.

Secondly I had to say goodbye to some of my favorite things.  I made a list of them for when I’m weak and I think just one won’t hurt –

do not eat

Today was a rough day.  I woke up wanting a donut and instead had fruit.  I craved chocolate in the middle of the afternoon and ate these instead –


Thirdly I now have a personal trainer.  I had to make an investment in myself and I needed someone to hold me accountable.

This is not a diet.  My lifestyle has to change.

Feel free to hold me accountable as well.  I will be defensive but grateful!
