Weight Lost This Week: 1 lbTotal Weight Lost: 6.7 lbs
I've said it before, but I'm saying it one last time, I'm saying goodbye to the 180's forever. I never want to see that unhealthy-for-my-size number on the scale again. I'm so tired of losing and then finding the same few pounds hovering right around 180. No more. And the thing of it is, there are a lot of things in life that are out of my control, but my weight is not one of them. It is directly and exclusively related to every food and exercise choice I make.
Many of us make the unpredictability of life an excuse for not taking care of ourselves. Yes, I could walk out the door and get hit by a car tomorrow, but it would be a lot less mortifying if I didn't have frosting all over my mouth at the time. True, I could be struck by lightning in my own swimming pool, but is it too much to ask that I could at least be proudly rocking a bikini again when it happens? I might even have a chance to outrun that bear that randomly attacks on a hike if I could actually run, or if I hiked on purpose
In all seriousness though, I know we're all going to die, but I'd like to live before that, and being overweight limits the amount of living I do if I'm being honest. Don't get me wrong. I also don't really think a life without cheese and the occasional cupcake is really worth living, so if I can teach myself healthy habits and true moderation when it comes to those things, I think I can die happy, and hopefully without any frosting on my face.
