Recently, I’ve noticed just how much weight I have actually gained, over the last several years. I noticed that I am wearing clothes to hide in, instead of clothes that I like to wear. Don’t get me wrong, I knew I was gaining weight but not to the degree as to where I am now. And yes, each year, I tell myself that this will be the year that I’m going to shed some pounds. It never happened and I finally had to figure out why I continue to keep gaining the weight. I would like to put the blame to the fact that I work too much, that I’m too busy taking care of everyone else’s needs instead of my own, not knowing what to eat or how to exercise. That’s all bullshit! The problem is that after all of that, I am tired and lazy and I really like to eat (I love my sweets and I love my Pepsi). And the worst part about it, is that any time I choose to take part in dieting and exercising, I respond very well and very quickly. What I have come to understand is that I am going to have to retrain my mind on how to do things better. The hard part is getting started. Is anyone out there having the same issues? What’s working for you and how are you losing the weight and keeping it off? I really want to know and I would love to hear from you.
