I loved my time alone with my coffee the other day.
I loved finding a new pair of jeans.
What I did not love was the body that faced me in a dressing room mirror.
It is my own doing- my own choices. A choice NOT to exercise. A choice to eat instead of deal with an emotion. A choice to eat more when I am already satisfied. Lots of unhealthy choices.
They are all choices I have made that have led me to this point.
When I stare in the mirror, I don't even recognize myself. I have gained SO much weight and am the heaviest I have ever been.
I finally got sick of the excuses I kept making.
I joined Weight Watchers.
It is Day Two and things are going great, but I am battling bad habits. Bad habits of overeating and boredom snacking.
I am proud of these two days however I have a long way to go. 100 pounds long.
So, I will write out this journey- because writing heals and teaches me.
