As I mentioned I am doing the biggest loser contest courtesy of Tib, the exercise QUEEN! In the past I have always made excuses, either I can't do this because my back hurts, I'm too tired, its too hot outside, etc. It was always something. Not anymore, the only person I'm hurting is myself. Excuses won't make me lose weight, won't make me a healthier person, won't teach my kids the right way of living. Only *I* can do that. I will do that, I AM strong enough to push through this no matter how difficult it may be.
My kids will look up to me as a good role model and hopefully take this into their own lives and be one less person on the scale of obesity. I'm removing: can't and won't from my vocabulary...at least in this part of my life. Because I CAN do it. I've been pushing myself and while it is hard at the time, when I'm done, I am that much more proud of myself that I am accomplishing something! I can't control everything in my life, but I CAN control this and I WILL. I am happy that I am making this step and even though some days can be damn frustrating, it will get better and I will be changed, not only on the outside but inside too!
*Oh, and I don't really know if the road to hell is paved with stupid excuses, I just thought it was funny.*
