As the new year approached I tried harder and harder not to think about setting weight loss goals. At this time last year I weight twenty pounds more than I do now. I have since then quit thinking about losing anymore weight. Am I at my goal? Heck no! Did I ever reach my goal? Not even close! I have settled. I have settled at the weight I am because it is easy. I don't have to work incredibly hard to maintain it. I don't have to workout on a regular basis so why try any harder?
I have always pushed people to reach their goals. I believe in striving for the impossible. I have every intention of entering graduate school and finishing. However, taking care of my body has taken a side seat. I would never let my friends or family settle for anything less than the best. Why let myself?
So this is it. I am approaching it. I am going to shed those last ten pounds and reach the goal I have so easily put aside. I may have to watch what I eat. I may have to workout daily. Sometimes, its the effort that makes the race worth running.
