Ok, I've had mobility issues for over 2 years now that started with a broken foot and ended in 3 surgeries and 2 hip replacements.
Over this time, I have had enormous pain walking and doing other activities.
And unfortunately, I have put on some extra weight, which I am unhappy about.
Today though this changes, please G-d.
I am taking back my life!
I want to lose the weight and be what I know I can be.
Time to stop the excuses.
It's Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) next week, and this is a good time to reflect, be introspective, self-critical, and aim high.
G-d, please help me to be strong, to resist temptation, and shut my mouth from eating the wrong foods.
I am determined, but G-d I need your help to be successful.
We've accomplished so much together--let's do this! ;-)
