What is your reason?

What is your reason for getting healthy?

Mine is because I want some kind of control over my aging. I am 45 years old and I can see changes starting.
Just because I am getting older doesn't mean I have to LOOK older.

Yes, it's true that I want to look better. But I want to feel better too. I want to go for a walk without getting winded. I want to enjoy summer without sweating like mad. (well, peri-menopause may have something else to say about that) I want to feel like me, instead of the extra-large me that is always hiding.

Add in all the health reasons, and that's why I'm doing it.
I just want to feel better and be the best me that I can be.
Not that there's anything wrong with being round. If you're happy, then rock it! There's no shame in that.
The thing is, I am not happy (well, maybe sitting around my house I am, but not in public) and I am going to change it. Because I can.

My journey has been a slow process. But it's not over. I still say that …

I'm stuck...

The scale has not moved in the last 3 weeks. I mean, it's good it didn't go up, but it just stayed the same. And that is disheartening. I can't pinpoint what I need to change. I've been doing my shakes, watching the junk (depriving myself of things I want and making better choices), and eating more salads.

The only things I can think of is I'm not exercising and some nights I've been breaking my own rule and eating a snack after 8pm.

Granted, I did eat some lunchmeat yesterday. Maybe I'm retaining water from that.
I wish I could go to the gym, but I'm not comfortable yet due to COVID. Yes, I'm over cautious about it (and that's my choice) but I wish things were back to normal. I liked using the treadmill and then a few machines like the Ab thingy.

I try not to let the scale own me, but watching numbers drop is more motivation then numbers staying the same.
I need to get outside and walking.

Motivation is key - right? I am motiv…
