I went for a swim today! And yesterday too - And I've been walking daily for over a week. It feels good. It's been too long.
I've also cut out sugar in my coffee.
I've become obese in recent years and it just feels awful. It's never been about body image for me. Thank goodness! I've seen the heartbreaking consequences of that kind of thinking. But I do really enjoy having energy, and I've been lacking that for a long time now. I put it down to spending too much energy just carrying too much bulk.
I don't have a goal weight I'm trying to get to - so I'll have to come up with some other motivational mind tricks. At the moment though - the main motivating force is my best buddy Adam and a GPS. We're walking together and tracking our progress online with the aid of technology - as geeky fanatics from way back, this seems to be doing the trick quite nicely.
