My Name is Emily and I’m a Phony

OK, I admit it, I am a complete phony. Well, not complete phony, but half a phony. I’ve been at this blog for months complaining about how I want to be healthy, lose weight, exercise, etc., but the fact is that I haven’t done one thing to make any of that happen. I haven’t changed my diet. I haven’t exercised. I haven’t changed one freaking thing. Literally nothing. I’ve thought about it, but haven’t done it.

So here I am. Unhappy with the way I feel, unhappy with the way I look, and truthfully, worried about my long-term health. My kid is my life and I worry about being around for him as a child and as an adult. That should be enough to warrant some changes, and yet, nothing. Last year, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. Now I have an increased risk, and an even more increased risk being overweight. And yet, nothing. My husband, god bless him, has never one made a comment or complained about my up-and-down weight, but I know I’m not as physically desirable to him as I once was. And yet, nothing.

What the freak? How can someone genuinely want to make good, positive changes in their life but do nothing about it? Therein lies the problem. I have got to start taking action. For my kid, for my husband, and most importantly for me.

So c’mon, me, let’s go!
