Tonight I've decided that I can.
I can make the right choices for me.
I can eat healthy food and I can stop eating junk.
I can love myself.
I can think of myself as a success and not a failure.
I can take it one minute at a time, one hour at a time, one meal at a time, one grocery shop at a time.
I can get back to looking like I did in these photos.
December 2005 when we went
to visit A in Taiwan
April 2009 when we were on
our way to Yamba - I was training
for the GC 10km race in June 09
(OK maybe not the top photo - A thinks I am too thin in that photo. So much so when I got off the plane and he saw me, as soon as he could talk to me without K hearing he asked my why I hadn't told him I was sick !!! I told him because I hadn't been sick, I'd been trying to lose weight !!! Plus that was 8.5yrs ago and I should be realistic about what weight I can get to.)
I can do anything I want - I just need to have a plan and a plan of attack.
I can exercise and get fit and run another 10km race. And then I can keep on running and run a half marathon and then a full marathon.
I can stop complaining about how my knee hurts and then I can find a doctor who will be able to help me - but first I can lose some weight because I am sure that my weight has a heap to do with my knee pain.
I can, I can, I can - it's up to me to do it because I know that, no matter how much support I get, it is only me who can do it.
So for today, I can love myself and be the best that I can be until tomorrow, and then I can love myself tomorrow and be the best I can be tomorrow, and the next day and the day after that - if I just take it one minute at a time.
Have the best day that you can !
