I hate looking in the mirror. I hate what I see. I wasn't always like this. I was an energetic kid that played all the sports. I was tall and scrawny. I actually had trouble gaining weight in high school. I could eat whatever I wanted. Both my parents had major medical problems, the kind that are associated with being overweight and the kind that are a part of your genes and get passed to your kids. I started struggling with my weight in college after sports stopped. Little by little I have gained 100lbs since high school. I've used diets, exercise tapes, gyms, running, cycling and sports to try to fight it but I'm losing the battle. I start but I always stop. I can't sustain the motivation to be HEALTHY.
I'm standing in front of a gun. I can move whenever I want but for some reason, I won't. I'm tired of dodging the bullet.
I'm pre diabetic, have high cholesterol and get winded when I go upstairs in my own house. I have a 6yr old daughter that I can't keep up with. I sit on the couch all day and when I work it's at a desk. I want to be healthy. I don't want to die young. I don't want my wife and kids to have to take care of me. I want to be a role model for my kids so that they will grow up and be healthy. I need to win this battle once and for all. Why dodge a bullet when I can just get out of the way completely? I need to step out of the path of the gun.
