Life is full of uncomfortable choices. Currently, I am in the midst of one of these choices. Initially this seemed so easy and felt so right. To a certain degree it still does, but I am facing a lot of opposition from people that I love and respect.

Most of my life I have made decisions based on how it would make others feel. I'm always living my life to look good in the eyes of those around me or to please those I love. Those same people are always challenging me to do things that make me happy. To stop living my life to make those around me comfortable

Now that I am doing this, all I get is grief for taking their advice. I don't feel like I should have to apologize for this. I don't belIeve it's right to condemn someone just because you don't agree with them.

Someone please get over here and kick my butt into shape!

Seriously, I really need to make a good friend that will hang out with me and or just challenge me/bug me into keeping up with my fitness and health goals! I have pretty much maintained most of what I lost last year. Lost 30, gained back 10. Still still have about 15-20lbs to go.

I need accountability, so I decided today that I would stop making up excuses about why I'm not being as healthy as I need to be AND start writing about it here...maybe someone out there could keep me in line from time to time if there's a lull?

Well, here I go! Going to the park with Mark today...possibly for a run?(God help me now!) No time like the present to get in shape and be healthy!
