Looking in the Mirror
Monday, October 20, 2014
I looked in the mirror yesterday and I saw the old me, very over weight. I asked myself, "How did you get back here?" As I walked back to my seat and finished my high calorie meal. I thought about the meals that I ate within just a week and there is no wonder how I got back here. simply put, I lost my way. After losing my job I went back to many of my old habits and every day is met with the thought that tomorrow I am going to start doing right. Yes I walk everyday but that is a necessity, I have no car.
The truth, not only is my weight spiraling out of control, the rest of my life is too. My weight like the sniffles of a common cold, is just a symptom of an out of control life. Rather than feel the disappointment of life, I eat 4 slices of pizza or have a entire bag of ginger snap cookies. My house is a wreck, my career is stalled and my weight is out of control. It's not that I don't like the person in the mirror. She is a warm, generous, caring person. But she dropped the ball on everything she worked hard for.
I sat in that restaurant yesterday thinking "this has to change."
Well my friends, tomorrow is here. Now what? I don't have the answers just yet, But I know where to start, setting (SMART) goals. I will give them serious thought and write them down.
Thank you for reading my blog. Feel free to leave advice or well wishes. Glad to have spark to turn to.
