Where to begin?
I have started (and derailed) on this journey many times. I have tried various weight loss methods (Atkins, South Beach, Master Cleanse, and Weight Watchers, to name a few), and some have worked better than others. But eventually, I gave up on all of them. There was always an excuse.
I don't take excuses at work. I don't take excuses at home. I don't take excuses from the kids. So why did I let myself make excuses? Because I was scared.
What if I did it all "right" and I pushed, and I pushed....and I didn't succeed? What if I gave it all and then some....and I still didn't get to a healthy weight (which for the record....for my height....would be around 160).
I had nothing to fall back on. No excuse. So I almost insured that I had an excuse. Work was too busy....the kids....family....other obligations....I don't have the time!
Now, I don't have the time, to NOT have the time. I need to do this.
So why is this time different? Stay tuned!
