Journey back to me

It is silly at best to wish to be 21 again, to hope for the return of that toned body, tight skin, sparkling eyes, and boundless energy. It is a waste of time to wish I'd appareciated youth more when I had it. What I want to do now, what I wish to do, what I need to do is accept who I am, where I am, and welcome my present and my future with open arms and an open mind.

I am so tired of making excuses, I'm tired of dieting, I'm tired of starting over, I'm tired of talking about ...

I am so tired of making excuses, I'm tired of dieting, I'm tired of starting over, I'm tired of talking about it, reading about it, and VERY tired of my half-hearted attempts at it. With a new month I've made a new commitment and, I will admit, this time it feels different. Maybe I'm just tired but I really do feel different since I came to some realizations tonight as I typed out my blog. There is a clarity of mind that has been missing before. This time really IS going to be different.

Twenty-one will never rear her lovely head again. But fifty-four can still be good, even great IF I take care of me, stop making excuses, work hard, be honest, and be consistent. I look forward to tomorrow. I look forward to who I'm becoming.

emoticon CUTTING CALORIES COUNTS emoticon

emoticon Compare the nutrition fact label and choose items with the least amount of calories.

emoticon Choose fresh fruit over fruit juice or dried fruits

emoticon Keep a food journal. When you have to write down everything you eat and drink you are more likely to think about it before you consume it.

emoticon Plan ahead when dining out. Decide what you are going to have before you get in the restaurant and stick to that decision. This allows you to calculate the amount of calories that you will consume and helps eliminate many temptations that can alter your weight loss

BE BLESSED WITH MUCH SUCCESS!!!!
