My name is John. On January 23, 2012 I decided to change my life by losing weight and living a healthier life. Since then I've lost over 75 lbs, discovered the joy of running, and changed how I see and eat food.
Looked in my bank account, panicked because I had a LOT less money than I thought I had and had several overdrafts.
Turns out that when I paid a bill to my ISP, instead of paying them $58.53 like it’s supposed to be, I somehow paid them $585.53.
I was talking to my mom today, and she told me that when I had lost all my weight, I had a lot more confidence, and as she put it, more “swagger”.
I laughed because, c’mon, why would I, of all people, have swagger? Sure, I felt a little bit more confident, but I didn’t realize I was THAT much more confident. Although now that I think about it, I am a lot less confident now than before, though I’m not sure if it’s from the weight gain or all the crap I went through last year, or both.
And even though a few weeks ago I said, repeatedly, that I was ready to get back into running and eating right, I really wasn’t. Just like my failed attempts before to lose weight, my heart wasn’t into it. And it shows, as I haven’t been very active here, mostly just posting about the GORGEOUS weather (yes, I had to rub it in, high 70’s again today!).
But that conversation, that comment that she made, I think was EXACTLY what I needed. So tomorrow, tomorrow I WILL start anew.
I managed to get a sunburn on the back of my neck walking Maya today.
It doesn’t hurt… just shocked me. Although I guess I should have expected something to happen after my previous two posts about the weather. :P
is a new day.
Haven’t been really active on here lately for a variety of reasons (or you could call them excuses, because most of them are just that), but that changes tomorrow.
