It’s never too late to start anything, that is; if you’re committed to hard work. I’ve heard, seen and even said this to someone else. I never felt I had the need to practice it for myself, that is until now.
I take pride in being a person who does not take constructive criticism to heart. I always do self-inventory. You know, checking my own self out before someone points it out. But when it came to starting certain parts of my life over, I became dumbfounded.
I knew I needed to do something when my appearance and attitude towards myself became a problem. I looked in the mirror one day to see a 240lb person staring back at what used be a 140lb person. I wasn’t a comfort eater, so how did I get to this point? I stopped exercising, getting out of my room and the house and had no human contact unless necessary!
I didn’t want to be that person in the mirror, but when I look back, it took me 5 years to get here; it will take me time to get back healthy. Where do I start? How do I start?
I decided to deal with my mental well-being first. I felt if I could get this part if me healthy, I’d be prepared for my physical well-being. It’s taking me quite a while, but I am making strides of progress daily. I’m also to the point where I am planning a healthy regimen. It includes better eating habits and exercising.
