This journey of weight loss is really not about weight loss at all for me. Don't get me wrong. The idea of losing weight is wonderful, but this journey of weight loss is more about breaking the habits that prevent me from ever losing weight. Habits of not exercising--ever. Habits of craving junk. Habits of eating a full meal while I am preparing dinner for my family and then another when we sit down at the table. Habits of giving my kids well balanced meals but not setting a good example by eating fruits and veggies myself. Habits of drinking coffee--coffee all day long.
The past seven days have been encouraging and discouraging all the same. Habits are hard to break. I'm done with excuses, though. I'm ready for a life of new habits--healthy habits. I'm ready to feel like myself again. I owe it to myself and I owe it to my girls.
Running shoes are coming back out tomorrow. Looking forward to the next week of sore muscles and new habits.
