It’s easy to complain about something, but not always so to change things. Sometimes the motivation we need is buried underneath doubt and fear.

I’ve been overweight for a few years now and I’ve sure done a lot of complaining about it, but not nearly enough to change things. I’ve just finally gotten so uncomfortable in my comfort zone that I’m really trying to turn things around.

I’m tired of being jealous of my friend’s and family members’ weight loss progress, angry at myself for not taking better care of me, not liking what I see in the mirror, not being able to do active things without getting winded so easily, and just, well, being tired. And, I’m tired, too, of just complaining about all of this.

It’s time for change. My husband and I have been putting our daughter in her stroller and going for walks a fair amount of evenings since my daughter was a couple of weeks old, but I knew I needed to step that up a bit.

So, we’ve increased the number of evenings we go walking, for starters. I started working out on my own at home and during that, I’ve had my two month old getting her tummy time in. I have started slow, so as to not overdo it. Today, I changed things up and my workout consisted of strapping my daughter to my chest in her rider and walking 2.5 miles. It sure feels different walking with 10.10 pounds attached to you than it does without!

I’ve also been cutting my portions down while eating and trying to eat healthier as well. I know that losing this weight is going to take exercise and eating better, so I’m trying to do both.

Be patient they say, yes, I know they’re right. Losing the 80 pounds, as of my last doctor appointment – three weeks ago, is going to take time. I want to do this right, the healthy way.

Like the Little Engine that Could, I think I Can!” I’ve tried and failed before, but rest assured that I’m not quitting. I refuse to give up. I have too much to live for. So let’s do this!

Any motivational tactics, tips, or advice anyone is willing to offer is welcome! ♡

  2. You’ve jumped the first hurdle, apathy. Stay with it. You’ll probably stumble at some point (we all do) but you’re on the right trail 😀
