Tackling the weight.....AGAIN.....

Ok, so I've been dealing with a weight issue for the majority of my life. I have gained weight.  I have lost weight. I have maintained weight...at the bigger number.  I have never discussed my weight out in the open to anyone for any reason.  

But in MMXI I am seeing myself in a new light.  There is nothing more for me to fear when it comes to my weight.  There are people bigger than me.  There are people smaller than me.  Weight is something everyone struggles with at one point in time or another.  It's just something we live with.  It's something I live with.  It's something I have to deal with. 

My weight is something I want to work on from the inside out and instead of the outside in.  In previous attempts I only thought about how I'd look smaller and not about health.  That's because I don't have any health issues.  I don't have high blood pressure, I don't have high cholesterol, I don't have diabetes, I am just overweight...without the high problems that people get when they are overweight.  I am lucky. 

So, I'm going back to the gym.  I rejoined LA Fitness up the street from me...with my husband.  I am committed to working out and eating right, but I'm not going give myself a hard time for eating something.  This is going to be slow.  lol I've set an objective of 1 pound per week.  The important thing is for me to see and feel this a lifestyle.  I can not make any excuses for not working out.  If I don't work out, I just don't.  No excuses.  I know that if I don't I will not make goal.  It's just that simple. 

My truth is, I am overweight.  It's my reality I live with, but the greatest reality of all is that realities can change.  Making a decision.  Choices...we all have the option to make one.  Make a choice and be happy......
