Some random thoughts
I'm about ready to head out on my run and as I was eating a yogurt I was reading some boards and forums. Most of them were weight loss related and it was blowing me away. Many of the people on these boards are setting themselves up for failure. Before even starting they have their excuses all lined up and ready to go. 'I'm on X medication and it's hard to lose weight on that' 'I injured myself and can't do X' 'I have small kids/animals/elderly parents and can't find the time to eat right and exercise' Don't they realize what they are doing?? Everyone is super busy. Everyone has something in their life that makes this journey hard. If it was easy we wouldn't have these problems, we'd just lose the weight and be done. It just amazes me that people say the want to lose weight but............ and then give themselves an out. I know I do it with my workouts but I'm aware I'm doing it and trying to break it. Plus I go into something convinced I'm going to do it. Okay, enough. I'm off on my 5 mile run.
