Reality check time !

Sunday, August 16, 2009 at 8:02 AM filed under Weight Loss postings
Okay, so I am now 47 and it's time for a reality check.  I was never a very active person, always a little on the plump side and for years I wanted to lose weight just to look better.  Well, my years of trying to impress people with my appearance are long gone, now it's just about getting healthy and staying healthy.  The average life expectancy in my family is unfortunately around the early 60's, but I am determined to not become a member of my family's statistics.  I have no one to blame but myself for my current physical condition, I was the one who did make time for exercise and stress reduction, I was the one who ate all the fattening food, and I am the one who smokes like a chimney.  Now I must conquer all of the traps and snares I have set up for myself (health-wise that is), I have many, many wonderful reasons for wanting to hang around this crazy little planet we call Earth, and now I must focus on focusing on me.  I have been a wife, mother, sister, daughter, daughter in law, and aunt.  I have allowed myself to put everything, and I mean everything!, before my health. This is my reality check and I will reality check myself atleast once every day from this point on in order to stay focused and maintain my progress.
