There's been a lot going on lately, and I've been handling it with it food, so of course I gained back everything I lost last year. This has only added to my stress, so it's time to stop the downward spiral and get myself back on track. I'm very quickly approaching 40, and I just do not want to spend another minute living this way.
To help refocus my energy, I've been thinking about why it is I started this journey in the first place. While there are a million reasons to commit to this journey, most of them involve health, self esteem, and/or the overall enjoyment of life. I don't want to worry about whether or not I'll fit into an airplane seat, and I want to walk into any clothing store and know that they'll carry my size. When I picture the future at a health weight, it just feels so liberating.
Where do I see myself in a year? Lighter, in every sense of the word.
