New year, new self?

Why am I asking you? Only I know the answer to this question. I have 3, count them...3 short years before I am 40. The sound of it is unsettling in my soul. Nonetheless, it will come.

Is it possible to be healthier at 40 than at 25? Being overweight and unhealthy is NOT new to me. I've been increasingly heavy from age 10 to present so, if I were to change things and change my intake and output....could I really be healthier now? If I don't try, I'll never know! I'll die. That's right, I will die broken hearted and alone and with nothing to show for my life other than the need to have an oversized wooden box to bury my big butt in. So...who's in? I'm not talking fad diets or various other hoodia gordonii whatnots which may be helpful to some. I'm talking: healthy foods & drinks go in & exercise becoming more than a passing thought.

I really feel like I was on a great path a few months back but I got past the follow up blood tests and began to relax on the discipline of choosing healthy foods. And I won't even begin to pretend I exercised-AT ALL. The most movement this body sees is a shift at my second job walking about the building. So! I'm going to find that track and get back on it and not only that, I will begin to move with purpose and exercise as my schedule allows. Warning: I may become even more annoying real soon, my apologies up front but if you love me at all, you will support me and go with me :) Your health is important to me too!! I henceforth give thee permission to hold me accountable to this.

I am with you in this. I reccommend an accountability group, like weight watchers. I lost twenty pounds with them, and they are starting a new incentive this week. I have kept the weight off for two years and it is because I still go to the meetings at least once a month. When my weight starts creeping up the accountability built into their program and the cost help to shock me back into reality. weight watchers is not a fad, but a lifestyle change. I highly reccomend their program. It takes self-discipline, but the testimonies and support their really make a difference.
