My friend Sheri posted this one the other day:
Nothing tastes as good as being thin feels!
She went on to babble about chocolate – but it hit me in the gut and made me think. I gotta thank her for that one. I thought of this one while running tonight:
You will never feel better if you eat because you feel bad!
Now, as I sit here typing this, watching the Biggest Loser – season 12 – I hear another one:
You have to find your inner WHY!
I kind of think I lost my inner why. I got off track about a month, or two, or three again. Riding, living, eating, having fun and not focussing on getting down to my healthy weight. On one side, that is good. I have enjoyed myself. I rode lots, ran some. Ate some, maintained my weight reasonably well. I went up 5, down 4, up 3, down 6, up 2… all what I would call normal and usual human fluctuations. I decided I would go back… I still remember how I felt in March. Disgusted. I’m not there yet – but I’m getting there. As strange as this may be – I feel almost like a role model and I don’t want to turn back. Some of you may know, my cousin Nathan has joined the fitness/weight loss cult and is doing very well. I read his blog, his twitter … I see his enthusiasm and I dont want, at any time, him to look to his cousin and at not least have him see me do something positive. At most – I don’t want to show him negative. Lately – I don’t feel like I’ve been inspirational or role model.
So here it is… time for change. Time to restart doing what did me well in the beginning. I see a lot of positive in my life. I didn’t completely go backwards. I haven’t gained back everything I lost. I have a seeming good attitude/slogan. Anybody else in?
BTW – Nathan is coming down from Rochester, NY in July to give he Peachtree a go! Should be good…

I’m in. I have let my inability to run stop me from working out in general. My excuse is, “well, if I can’t run, then why bike or swim?” I need an accountability partner and I will be yours as well. I need to drop 15 pounds myself, besides the fact that I need to get back into shape, running or not.
Don’t forget my inspirational motto
“No matter how slow you go, you are still lapping everybody on the couch”

I’m in. Need to lose 25. I’ve used every excuse in the book not to exercise. Been working on turning a corner. Maybe I’ll come run the Peachtree with you and Nate!
