Well today I turned 39 years old. Its my day of change. Tomorrow will start my year-long journey. I am nervous but ready. My plan for now is to go one day at a time so I do not get over-whelmed with the year ahead. I have to think days ahead so I do not lose my momentum. I will be recording my weight and measurements in the morning when I get up, that will be just awesome I am sure. (sarcasm inserted here) My immediate plan is to stay positive, try to find the good in myself and fake confidence. Hey fake it till you make it right?!? One day it may be real confidence. I will be focusing on my portion control, water intake and moving more. I know it will take time to get my body re-adjusted to exercise. I will do what I can do even if its only a half of a mile walk, whatever it is will be better than nothing. This is going to be a long year full of ups and downs, success and failures but I will not give up. I owe it to myself to make this change. I need to love myself, it is time for me to stop dwelling on the past and own my life. I pray that in a year I can look back on this post and be proud of myself and my accomplishments. Stay tuned…..it is going to be a long bumpy ride!
