I’m guilty of putting off being healthy until “tomorrow”. I’ll start watching my calories TOMORROW. I’ll start working out TOMORROW. I can have junk food tonight because my diet doesn’t start until TOMORROW. Tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow. I’m sick of it. I’m no longer going to wait until tomorrow to put off losing weight. I’m going to press the start button today.
Weight loss really isn’t that complicated, you take in less calories than you burn off. While it might not be complicated, it still isn’t easy. It especially isn’t easy when your whole life has revolved around food, like mine has. I was born and raised in New Mexico, where everything is fried and buried in cheese and green chile. I still can’t go home for a visit without leaving 5lbs heavier. The food is THAT good. I’m learning how to view food as a source of nutrition that keeps me alive, rather than a source of comfort.
I feel like I’ve been doing just the bare minimum these past few weeks and nothing is really changing. While I’m taking steps in the right direction, it isn’t enough. I can push myself to do more. I know what I need to do and now I just need to do it. So, here I am officially pushing the start button TODAY.
