In the spirit of the New Year, I'm rebooting my healthy living efforts. Frankly it needed to be started long before now but I had to spend some energy getting more mentally/emotionally healthy. Now that my head is in the game it is time to get the body in the game too.
So, I joined Weight Watchers. I've been doing it for 4 days so far and feeling my way around. My first meeting is tomorrow morning. Including the weigh in. But it is time to face the music and reclaim control of that number.
"What's different right now?" you might ask.
It is true, I've tried this before, even with weight watchers, but it feels different now. I think the difference is that I realized this is my choice. Obvious yes, but it is my choice to eat or to focus on what is more important - being healthy, losing weight, getting my body ready to be pregnant again some day. I want to be a mother to my son, a wife to my husband, and to have more kids. I'm 32 and had 1 high risk pregnancy. The time is now to make the change.
And I have the choice. And somehow during these four days every better choice I've made has made it that much easier to make the next better choice. I'm sure I'll have really hard days, and I'm sure that I will stumble.
But I am in control of my own choices. And my choice is to lead a healthy life. Now I just have to find the ability to make it happen.
Stay tuned, I'm sure I'll be talking about this more often!
