I am going to do my best, however, to keep these resolutions going even after the end of January.
You see over the last 6 months, I have gotten very lazy and hardly exercise at all. That is really not good for someone who was already overweight.
Today is the anniversary of my grandfather’s death. He died of a heart attack in his early 40s before I was even born. I never had the pleasure to know him. And, now that I am about his age, I realize something — I am not ready to go. I have a young son who I want to see grow into a man. So I have to change my bad habits.
Therefore, it’s time to lose weight and make time to exercise regularly and hopefully gain a new perspective.
Before I became pregnant, I had successfully lost weight on Weight Watchers as well as doing 45 minutes of cardio exercise every day. That is what I am going to be doing starting today. Tuesdays were our weigh-in days so I will continue that each Tuesday. I weighed myself prior to writing so I know where I am starting. Too high a number that I hope to have lowered over the next several weeks.
I would appreciate advice from others who are struggling with this issue as well as advice from those who have successfully lost the weight. I am writing this since I plan to make this a priority for myself and I hope to encourage someone else as well.
I wonder if I can reach my goal by my next birthday? I am certainly going to try.
