Re-Inventing Myself

Friday, October 7, 2011

So I get back from vacation and we get great news concerning our future and I made another decision to change something about myself that has been bothering me for a long time .........I gave up smoking 2 yrs ago because I worked in an hospital as a Nursing Assistant and I didn't want to end up like some of the patients I had to work with .....I saw grown men gasping for air and scared that it would be their last breath....I sat with people who were dying and watched their breathing as they went through the different stages of breathing as they were passing away .....It was then I realized how important it was to breathe and I surely didn't want to have to struggle to breathe so I quit cool turkey and from that day to now almost 2 yrs later I have not had any great desire to smoke ....Well now I see myself struggling a little to breathe and it's getting worst each day ....I find it hard to walk any distance.....My clothes are all shrinking :)....I am what the professionals call obese and I hate it ....So I went out and got a treadmill now this monstrous thing is set up in my living room and there is a million things I would rather do but I have committed myself to a daily walk on that thing ....I know I have to start slow so I'm doing 15 mins at 2 mph and surprise surprise it didn't kill me and now I even talk myself out of eating a cookie because this treadmill tells me how many calories I burn while walking and I don't want to walk and burn then eat and gain back :)........So just as determined as I was to give up smoking I am determined to lose this weight and get in shape ......I'm kinda excited and I'm even starting to like my monstrous machine

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” — Elisabeth K├╝bler-RosS
“The day she realized, it was not about the world but was all about her, she grew the wings. The day she understood she was not answerable to any of them who always blamed and pointed her, she had the fire blazing in her eyes. She raised and soared towards the sky. The whole world looked at her in awe and wished if only they could be her. She was not confined to be on the ground anymore. She had the wings of fire and she left a trail everywhere she went, for other to follow.” ― Akshay Vasu
