"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You're on your own, and you know what you know. And you are the guy who'll decide where to go." Dr. Seuss
I start with this quote because I know it'll kick off what's about to be one of the hardest journeys of my life. For 36 years I've struggled with who I was as a person, with my weight, gave up a lot of dreams, made a lot of mistakes, have a lot of regret, went through years of therapy, drank to forget...you get the picture. I've been through a lot - more than someone my age should have gone through but we all have our stories, we all have a past. It's time to move forward, use the past to propel you into the future and start making the most of this thing called life.
"You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of." Jim Rohn
I am stopping there for now...we'll get to it all. That I promise. And I hope that by me sharing my stories (and there are plenty,) you'll find someone to relate to and someone to (hopefully) look up to as I take my life back...and by that I mean becoming happy with who I am inside, discovering my authentic self and by doing that revealing who I am truly meant to be on the outside.
I hope you'll join me for this journey - let's tackle our inner demons and our fitness goals together! Each day I'll post my progress, share my past and inspire and motivate me - AND YOU - to live your life to the fullest.
Let's live our lives with the passion we're meant to. Tomorrow I'll post my pic, a little intro to who I am and my measurements along with a before pic (yes, I'm actually doing this.) The first step is facing who you are NOW and loving who you are NOW before you can move forward.
