I've been doing a lot of thinking lately. It is hard to believe that I have so much weight to loose, that is why I am excited that I have lost three pounds this week. I know...I know... I always start out good and then when it gets too tough, well, I go back to my old ways of eating. I have a new found need to finish what I started.
It hard to accept that I am overweight. I don't know what is different now that then, but I must admit... I have to get on with loosing my weight. Horrible words or rather a realization is the fact that I need to loose a whole person to be not over weight. That really shocked me and depressed me as well. I never thought of it in terms of another person, but it is what it is. I own it now and I am going to keep working on it.
I had lost forty-five pounds in the last year or so, then gained ten back and honestly, everything fell apart last summer when Hubs got laid off and retired. I've re-grouped now. I feel positive that it may take me a few years to loose it all, but I can do it. Something as simple as tracking my food has helped me with accountability. I keeping my food journel at My Fitness Pal. I have lost three pounds this week. I did very little except keep a food journal. Imagine what I can do when I am consistant with exercise. My goal is one pound a week.
Thank you for the encouragement.
