The future depends on what we do in the present
There was an old man called Michael Finnegan
He grew fat and then grew thin again
Then he died and had to begin again
Poor old Michael Finnegan, begin again
Part of the lyrics to a fun Irish song my Dad used to sing Source
When you are small – by that I mean is not very tall - every extra kilo of weight shows in the form of flabby flesh rolls of fat, so you try very hard to trim down and lose it – things happen and it reappears – you work hard at it again – then slacken off and ‘Hello Again’ those extra kilos are back again lol For me over these past few years it seems like a never ending yo-yo situation
Compared to others I don’t have a lot to lose but with a family history like mine and a GP advising you to lose it the benefits of not being over weight are very important.
Now this photo is of a pathway I often walk down – nice and straight (well sort of) then theres a bit of a bend and then it carries on in the same direction straight down the road – sort of like this journey of mine
Except there seem to be more and more twists and turns along the way
Which means I am going to have to Make Good Food choices by not bringing temptation into the house – Exercise on a regular basis by using my Leisure Centre membership frequently and Walking at every opportunity – and also Use Skills Learned in the past maybe even Revisit the learning centre (WW).
We live in a beautiful area with nice leafy suburbs around about so theres no excuse for me not to be out and about
Can you see how this path straightens out as its going up the hill, well thats where I’m going.
Onward and Upward………..or should that be downward lol
Photos will enlarge with a click
Oh and the quote at the top – how true it is
One I have to think of and live by if I want to return to a healthier me
The future depends on what we do in the present.
