Finding The Answer (Getting Serious About Getting Serious)

I’ve posted many times how I’ve failed and all that bull shit. I struggle all the time trying to figure out why I’m this way. I don’t mean for all you smart asses out there saying “you eat too much” What I mean is the simple fact that I can’t come to terms with why I’m treating myself this way. It truly is a disease. I’ve made excuses my whole life. I’ve tried to make promises that I could never keep. I’ve set goals that I never seem to obtain. To myself I’m a failure. The only thing in my life that I’ve ever gotten right is my beautiful wife and little angel Shelby. Why should they have to put up with my actions. Why should they put up with me being a ticking time bomb. What if my promise to get healthy was for them would that help or would I just fail on them like I have myself. We all know that only I can do this. I have to make the right choices. I’m the one that puts the food in my mouth. I’m the one that chooses to go to the gym and workout.

I beat myself up because I always want an answer. I always want to know why. So much so that I beat it till it’s blowing dust….lmao (made ya think for a min right?) But I’ve never been able to find the Y in Jess. I’ve never been able to find the answer. None of y0u can answer this for me, only me. You can all have your say or opinions but nope, not even a doctor can right a script for this disease. The answer my friend is in me.

It’s time to get serious about getting serious. It’s time for me to find the answer. Then and only then will I beat OBESITY.

So with that being said, I’m starting all over. Back to 0 pounds lost. This is my last attempt at getting it right. This is now my journey to find the answer.

STAY TUNED,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

  1. While I agree that the answer is in you, I think you’re doing yourself a HUGE disservice if you don’t get some counseling. Doing so is not a sign of weakness, but a sign of strength. I know it’s hard for men to wrap their heads around that, but it’s true. As you say, in your own words, you’re a ticking time bomb and that your family deserves better than that. They do…and so do you. And you can’t do it alone. I’m sure it’s scary to think about “going there” with a therapist but you know what? It’s scarier to think about *not* going there. Your feelings, your fears…they can’t destroy you. They really can’t, even though it seems like they might. I’ve been there, done that and I’m still here. Trust me. Trust YOU!

    • Already pre-registered just waiting for the details. I’m for sure going. I have a feeling this time around that they won’t forget me. I’m getting in front of them and selling them why they should help save my life.

  3. It’s all part of the journey my friend. In each of these attempts you learn something about yourself. You are getting stronger each time. For only a strong person picks himself off and goes on. He’s to the journey! 🙂

  4. You can do this!

    I have been struggling as well. I’m very addicted to sugar and trying to break away from it, but I’ve decided that I, too, would like to get my life in order.

    Life is just so beautiful and it’s worth fighting for.

    I beat myself up a lot, too, but I found that it only makes things harder. Even if you make a really big make, you have to just shrug it off and move on. Try to learn something from it and use that knowledge.

    Dave did it and so can we! Check out Dave:

    I always go back to his story.
