If you have a hill to climb, waiting won't make it smaller.
This is a saying that is on a church board that I pass by everyday and this little gem has been on it for at least a couple of weeks. I have been thinking about this saying a lot. Two weeks ago I hit "onederland" and I kept trying to figure out when it was that I was last at that weight. I remember being 220 for a long time and I remember being 240 for a long time. I can't honestly remember when I was last under 200, but I'm willing to bet is was before I had my first son and he is now 22 years old.
I remember thinking I should do something about my weight when I weighed 220. I didn't. Then I remember thinking I should do something about my weight at 240. I again didn't do anything and before I did choose to do something my starting weight was 262.5. Maybe my journey would have been different if I would have chosen to climb that hill at 220 or even 240.
So to everyone out there waiting to climb those hills - do it now! Waiting will not make it smaller....
I also got to thank in person my doctor that recommended weight watchers to me on Tuesday - she told me (like so many others before her) that I needed to lose weight and she told me that they had a program through Kaiser, but she had always heard great things about Weight Watchers and would recommend them above the other program. I left that appointment (July 31, 2007) and went straight to the Weight Watchers center and the nice ladies who were packing up took my registration fee and had me sign the papers because they knew if they told me they couldn't do it and had me come back, I probably wouldn't.
