This is going to be a long, drawn out journey, therefore I can say that the hardest part of all of this is that I must continue to keep up on my stats in order to effectively make a difference in my weight loss/fitness goal. In essence, I have to look at this as an athlete in training, so my first and immediate goal is to finish a 5K run. That would include entering an event some time in March or April.
I am having trouble coming to terms that this new journey will have to be something that I continue until I die, because my default lifestyle is to be as lazy as possible. Not only that, I am painfully reminded that being obese IS my fault, and is also something I must manage DAILY. But there is some spark, deep in the recesses of my pea-brain that is telling to get back in shape. I must listen to that tiny voice.
