Some people make cute lists for things they want to accomplish as the new year approaches. As long as I can remember, my new year's resolution has been to lose weight. Even when I was young, that is what I would say to myself. This is the year I change. This is the year I start to work out and eat better. Just like millions of people do every year, they make their resolution to lose weight. They tell them self they'll go get a gym membership and workout every day and make better food choices. That's great that people want to make a change, but they need to put forth the effort to see the results. Your not going to see changes within a week. It takes about a month for you to see some sort of change in your body. I have been on my weight loss journey for 2 years and I have still not hit my goal weight. I have done amazing things with my body that I never in a million years thought I could ever accomplish. I have ran numerous 5k's. I have ran a 10k. I did a Mud Run for the first time. I wrote a "lame" post that got the attention of many well known bloggers including Tony.
I have had also had times where I wanted to just give up on myself. Throw in the towel and say eff it.
But I refuse to give up.
I refuse to be considered "overweight". Just because the scale shows a certain number on it does not define you. I am still considered over weight, but let me tell you I am in better shape than a lot of people who are considered "skinny".
I DON'T WANT TO BE SKINNY. I WANT TO BE HEALTHY.
So my resolution is the same that it has been for a long time. Lose weight.
I have about 20-30 more pounds I would like to lose. When I hit my goal weight in 2012, we will talk about new goals I want to accomplish.
