21 days. Why can’t I dedicate 21 days to myself. I got an email from someone who wanted me to take a 21 day weight loss challenge. And I need it. I’ve been wanting to lose weight for ever since I had the twins. If you look at me, you wouldn’t think I needed to lose weight, but I’m not happy. I’m not happy at all with myself. This is the heaviest I’ve ever been except when I was pregnant. Nothing fits. I started having to buy the size I said I’d never buy.
Here’s the problem. I’ve been thin my whole life. Up until I had the kids, I could pretty much eat and drink whatever I wanted withought worrying about it. I never had to workout. I was just thin. And I still am, but now I’m thin and totally out of shape.
Dieting to me is horrible. I’m not used to having to watch what I eat. I don’t even know how to diet, so once I start I can only go a few days before cheating or saying it’s too hard. Exercise? To me it is a punishment, not an enjoyment.
Every year I say I’m going to get into shape, this will be the year. I say this every year. Usually in the spring when I start thinking of having to put on a bathing suit for summer. I see friends my age who look amazing in their suits, that’s not me. But I also know that they work at it. I’m lazy! I don’t want to have to workout and eat right. I want to eat junk food and drink wine. I want to sit on the couch instead of talkfing a wakl.
21 days. I think that I need to try it. I was talking to another blogger who told me thtat when she decided to lose weight she needed to be held accountable and that every week she posts her weight and activitiy on her blog. She has the support of her readers and she said she’s less likely to cheat if she knows that she’s going to have to tell them that she did. I like this ida and I think I am going to do the same thing.
The 21 day fitness challenge starts on February 1st. I’m not going to wait until then to make changes, I will start now. But I need accountability. So you’ll be hearing more about this.
