No Excuses

Here comes the year 2015. I joined SP in 2009. Where does the time go. Along the way I have met many new friends on here and have formed a bond with a few of them. I also have found out a lot about myself and my eating habits. I did at one point get back to goal, but as soon as "life" kicked me in the butt, I once again crumbled and turned to food.

Here comes the year 2015. I joined SP in 2009. Where does the time go. Along the way I have met many new friends on here and have formed a bond with a few of them. I also have found out a lot about myself and my eating habits. I did at one point get back to goal, but as soon as "life" kicked me in the butt, I once again crumbled and turned to food. I have found out that I let the circumstances in my life become an excuse to eat. Yes life can knock us down, but is that any excuse to mistreat our body by eating all the junk we can shove into it. Then we make life much harder because our clothes don't fit, we don't feel good, and on and on. It's like we punish ourselves because life has thrown us for a loop. We can't control some of the things life throws our way, but we can control what we put in our mouth. So now that I know this about myself (not that I didn't know part of it before) I am going to try my hardest to make myself healthy this year. I don't want to wake up one day in a hospital bed and then say, I should have done it back then.

PERSEVERANCE: The act of persevering; continued, patient effort

Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you. Yes, I will help you. I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10

Other Information:
You must believe you can do this. It doesn't matter how often you have failed in the past; your past does not equal your future. What matters now is focusing on what you want, identifying what you need to get it and taking action. Your health and happiness are important, so stand strong. Dr. Mike Moreno

...aiming for reality instead of perfection, and settling for what you can actually get done. Reba McEntire

We can spend countless hours complaining about what we cannot control, or we can spend our time finding a solution to a problem we can. Kate Brewer, PT
