Dearest Body of Mine,
Good morning! I know I am throwing you in to shock by cutting out the sugary junk I was shoveling down your throat but its for the best. I'm not happy living the way I was. Hiding you under baggy clothes, eating late at night when everyone was gone to bed so they didn't see the eating, spending more time sitting in the computer chair than doing any exercise. It has to stop!
I kept telling myself I can't do this alone. That I needed more accountability than to just myself. That if the world was brought in on my journey to a healthier me that I would be more apt to stick to it than if I was going at it alone. I realized something yesterday as I fed you the extra junk at lunch time just because I was upset and wanted comfort. The comfort I thought I was giving you from the food was no comfort at all. I was upset, I ate, realized eating wasn't going to make my hurt go away and then felt worse because I had went off plan.
I was wrong. I have been wrong for some time now. I don't need others to keep me accountable, though having friends as support is wonderful. I have to want this for me. I'm tired. Tired of hiding. Tired of not feeling worth anything. Tired of seeing others and wishing I could be like them. Tired of not believing in myself enough to get healthier sooner. I know it can be done. Weight Watchers on my own and a Curves membership helped me drop 25 lbs. before. I have picked my WW back up but can't afford the Curves membership anymore. Thank goodness we got wii fit, EA Sport active and Golds Gym cardo wii games. I don't think I need a pricey gym membership to get in shape. I can find plenty to do to get you moving.
So, no matter if I make the top 5 or by some chance actually snag a Mamavation spot or not I do want this and I want it for me and I WILL do this. So get ready body, sugar detox has begun and the exercise I have been putting you through? Its not stopping, if anything its gonna get more tough so this is your wake up call. I'm coming after you! But it's for the best and out of love. I know it's not going to be easy but I think you have to have the bad to enjoy the success of the good. Here is to a happier, healthier us!
