Day one of my new life

Day One

Sunday, October 24, 2010 at 2:04 PM filed under Weight Loss postings
Today is my day to start anew in life.  I have been overweight for over 10 years and have struggled to find the motivation to get back to where I was. I never seem to have a problem starting a program, but somewhere along the line I give up I guess. 
Two years ago I had managed to get myself down in weight and fit into a size 14. What happened? How did I manage to get myself back up there?
I would like to believe and try hard to tell myself that it is because I got so sick and ended up having 2 surgeries, but am I lying to myself? I was unable to work or exercise for a long time, but what about after? I just never went back into the life I had made for myself and thus put on weight again.
I need to figure out how to keep myself motivated!! How do I keep myself from quitting?
I have longed to be thin again yet I allow myself to remain depressed when I get dressed and can't wear even the clothes I was wearing 2 years ago. It seems no matter how depressed about my weight I get I just don't do anything about it.
WELL today is my day!!! Today is the day I am determined to start back on track!! I know I can do it!!! I just have to keep my head up and remember the greater good it will do for my overall health!!
