I’d like to say I’m not a vane person; who cares what the world thinks about how how look! Right? WRONG! Reality is I do care, I don’t think that’s really a bad thing. I do love and embrace my curves but reality is that not only do the extra pounds I’m carrying around not always look the best in some outfits; I’m also not in the best health or shape I’ve been in.
Before I cratered to my depression almost a year ago I was in the best health of my life. I was walking and running every day, working out with a private trainer 3 days a week and even doing cross fit at one point. I felt good and looked great! I still had curves and gave into knowing I’d never have my 20 year old body back but I was loving my new 40 year old body. I also found that I ate much better because I felt so good and the bad food just didn’t like my stomach. Since then though I’ve fallen back into a sloth like routine, this also has led to bad eating habits. I don’t have the same energy as I have when I’m working out and I’m not as happy either.
So starting this weekend I will begin my journey to a happier and healthier me. Even if I don’t lose the 25 to 30 lbs I need to lose, as long as I feel better that’s all I need! Here is to the new me!
goal: 125 currently: 155 – week 1: 0 pounds lost so far
