Today I got up and decided no more excuses. I am tired of being heavy and not feeling my best because of it !!
I want to get fit and have energy and between my weight and the benedryl I am taking for my really awful allergies this year, I am just tired all the time.
I would love to move in two months and be on my way to a fitter body. It would be nice to lose some weight before we move. I have to get used to going up and down a staircase as we will be on the second floor !!
Biggest Loser this year has a theme of no excuses and I think it is a good one. So, that is the mantra I am going to use from now on. No excuses !! I want to feel great and look nice and feel comfortable in my own body and being this heavy it is impossible to feel comfortable .
So, I decided last night that when I got up today I was going to get going. I want to watch how much I eat, aim for 1200 calories a day and try to get at least 30 minutes of excercise a day.
I am dreading the doctor today, the scale, they will take my blood pressure and all that stuff and I am not looking forward to it. I have got to get the weight off to prevent health issues, namely diabetes and heart disease, my stomach weight makes me a huge candidate for those and I have the start of rising blood sugar and cholesterol and blood pressure caused by, I am told metabolic syndrome. So far I am avoiding taking all kinds of meds but it is inevitable if I do not get this weight off and get active.
So, today is day one and I am hoping in the next two months before I move I can work hard and see some signifacant changes in my body and how I feel.
I have to learn patience , that is a big one and my ADD I have had since childhood makes me more impulsive about eating and I will have to firmly combat that as well. Wanting something and eating it have to be two differant things. I tend to want, and then have whatever I want.
I will keep track here how I do and anyone else trying to lose weight, I would love to hear your stories. I am always inspired by others successes !!
So, I am on my way to a healthier me , one day at a time, no more excuses !! I deserve to be fit and feel good and I am going to work hard to make it happen !!!
