For the past few years, I’ve given various levels of attention to my weight and the desire to simply lose one pound per year. And to be honest, it hasn’t worked well. I still go to TOPS, I still go to the gym – although not as regularly as I have in the past, but the numbers do not change much, sad to say.
Still, that is not a reason to throw in the towel, and it struck me, now that I’m 55, that I’m also ten years from “retirement” as it were, and that is a destination to move towards.
As I was pondering the lack of progress, it struck me that I needed to focus on the things I want to accomplish and of course one of them is to be at a healthy weight. But that’s not enough. I want to be strong. I want to be flexible. I want endurance. I want to rise up on wings of eagles. I want to walk and not be weary.
I want to begin again. Smaller goals, different goals, and perhaps friends to join me on the journey.
Have a good day! I’m off to grade papers.
