Sad empty wagon train May 18, 2013
There are at least a dozen wagons I have fallen off of in my life. The marriage wagon. the church attendance wagon. the non-smoking wagon. the debt-free wagon. The college degree wagon. The see-the-doctor-regularly wagon. You get the picture.
For the most part, after falling out, I have picked myself up, dusted off, and ran after the the darn thing to get back on. I have succeeded in most cases. I have the boarding passes to prove it! A wonderful husband. A master’s degree. A year smoke free. Okay, I still have a few to find a seat on again but I have at least run beside them once or twice since falling.
The saddest wagon of all, however, is the weight loss wagon. And it’s more of a train circling a place called “healthy”with cars you move through as you work your way to the conductors seat. My cars include hydration, supplements, diet, cardio, strength training, support, personal bests, confidence….. Etc. It’s fast, and if you miss it today you try again in an hour, or tomorrow. The fact of the matter is, the longer I wait to step on, the more cars get attached and the more expensive the ride. As I get older, the faster I want to get to my destination but the slower I move through the cars.
Im buying a fresh ticket today. Its too important not to. I’m 45 days from 42. I’m gonna turn this thing around right now, and get back on track.
On vacation, which means poor eating choices for last 3 days. Can’t wait to get home tomorrow, and then have another week off to get on track before I add the stress of work back in. I was back up to my January 1st 2013 weight of 217 a few days ago. I’m probably more now. Its my all time high on the scale. I am committing to exercise, write, and stay tuned in to my W.O.W. forums girls. I have also sigend up for the 3FC biggest loser challenge beginning tomorrow. I hope to lose 30 lbs in 6 weeks and am going to follow the old faithful slim in 6 to get there. Wish me luck! Gotta figure out how to get out of my own way this time!
