I remember being in my teens and early 20's, and thinking that I wasn't as thin as I wanted to be. Looking back now, I can't believe I thought that way. I was only about 125 pounds then, probably thinner than I should have been. But I was so much more active than I am now. Not that it is an excuse, just a fact. I worked for a local theme park, and walked all day long, alround the park. On the weekends I would go line dancing. Talk about a cardio work out.
Then I hit my 30's and now my 40's, and my activity level came to a grinding halt. I found a career in Insurance Verification, where I sit all day long in front of a computer. I married an Italian who is a fantastic cook, and had 4 children. I don't go line dancing any more, and have pretty much become a "homebody". I gained over 75 pounds over the years, and while I have lost weight over the years, I keep gaining it back.
So what am I going to do about it? Certainly not sit here and complain, or feel sorry for myself. I have done that too many times in the past. Now I am going to get up off my rear, and get active. No more making excuses. "My joints hurt" - I have an essential oil to help with the pain. "I like food too much" - fine, then limit the portion size. "I'm too tired" - I always will be if I don't push myself. "I don't have the time" - the Coffee Break Workout has only been taking me about 5-10 minutes a day. "I hate my body" - well DUH! That's why I'm doing this. "I don't have the will power" - it's not my power that will sustain me, it is God's!
What are your excuses for not doing the things you want to do with your life? Doesn't matter if it's about weight loss or not. Maybe it's about getting that job you always wanted, or the house you dreamed of. Comment with the excuses that you have been letting hold you back. Let's all give up our excuses together!
