My goal with this project is to realize that failure is only eating the mountain whole; success is eating the mountain in small bites until it is gone. My mountain is the weight I gained when I felt like I was being thrown away (failed marriage) and decided that I was not worth taking care of myself. I stopped worrying about my weight, I stopped putting on make-up or even doing my hair. Fast forward five years and I have found someone who supports me 100% in everything I do: work, school, my children. I can't ask for a better person to be in my life. Now I want to lose the weight I have gained, not for him, but for me. I want to be the person I should be and was (healthy and fit). I have a tendency to want to accomplish everything at once and be done with it. This is a life changing decision on my part and I need to treat it as such. My goal is to take small steps and achieve big things. My first goal is to just start walking again. Today I signed my daughter and myself up for the 5K9 run/walk in Feb. it is run by Petco and you can bring your dog. I have three and all of the love to walk so they will be happy and benefit from my wanting to get into shape. I am excited to start this journey. I have 86 lbs to lose walking is just the start. I mean to learn how best to use my weights at home so I can start using them to gain muscle. I will work as hard as I have to, to lose the weight I have put on. Besides my (ex) step daughter will be graduating in a little over a year and I would love to look wonderful (better than I was with him) when that day comes since I will be foreced to see him again.
