I am in a complicated relationship with myself. I always strive to be the best I can be, but it’s challenging to stay on the right path. I have tried to lose weight for years now; only to gain it back, plus more. I can never commit to a diet and I could never find an exercise that I liked. I love my body, my weight, and my proportions, but lately I’ve been feeling sluggish, fatigued, and honestly, just gross. A lot of these feelings are associated with my poor health decisions. I have not been eating right nor have I been exercising frequently. This summer, I’m going to do it right – I’m doing myself a favor.

I’m starting to find apps that help me track my calories and my exercise routines. Since I have something that’s keeping me accounted for, I have more motivation to get up and get moving. This morning I woke up bright and early to do some yoga, and I aim to do the same for the rest of this week. I’m also only keeping healthy snacks in my fridge to curb my cravings. Let’s see how this goes.

This is hard. Losing weight has never been easy for me, but I really want to try now. I really want to be healthy again. Hopefully my journey goes well this summer. If not, I will continue learning more about my body and the best ways to keep myself healthy. Wish me luck!
