Today's prompt was Reach.
Yesterday was a day of new beginnings for me. I, once again, started an exercise and nutrition program. I weighed myself...for the first time in a long time. I weigh more than I have ever in my life. Even more than when I was pregnant. I am 56 years old. I was discouraged. The goal of losing so much weight seemed insurmountable but I told myself that I had done it before and I will do it again. My goal of losing 30 lbs is well within reach and after that 30 then I will look at whether I want to strive for that last 10 pounds of weight loss. You ask why I chose the number 30 instead of choosing 40 right now.
Well, you see, I have lost 30# before so I know I can reach that goal. I know it is possible so that is what I am going to reach for. After I lose that 30# you would think (hope) that the last 10# will seem like a piece of cake.
Please join me on my health and fitness journey at my new blog, A Day in the Life on My Quest for Fitness. Perhaps we can go on this journey together and if not perhaps you can just stroll by my side for a bit and offer some encouragement.
