Minus 15 in July: That's My Goal

"Remember: All that counts is how you do today. Take it day by day and those days will add up in the long run."

It's a big goal, for July, but I've changed my eating habits quite a bit and am starting to move more. Nothing major with exercise, but moderate right now.

Overeating has me 68 pounds overweight as of Jan 1, 2015. Walking and tracking what I eat are the first (literal) steps to reaching my mileage goal and weight-loss goal for this year.

My Program:
My program is a sound one: Tracking what I eat, paying attention to serving sizes, focusing on eating whole foods instead of processed/pre-packaged foods, and exercising regularly. So why is it so hard for me to follow my own advice?

Personal Information:
I'm 44 and too young to be old and fat. I want to be a confident strong woman instead of a woman withering inside an overweight and unhealthy body.

Other Information:
I must remember to pray every day for God's strength to get me through. I am taking action to restore the athletic body He blessed me with.

Hi Andrea,
I am curious. Do you have a pedometer? Even if you don't do a lot of exercises, walking always counts. I don't know what I would do without my pedometer. Have a good Wed!!

I really appreciate the comment on my blog!

I often find myself playing "let's make a deal" with the un-motivated side if me, even in un-fitness related things. "If I just do this, I can do that". Or "If I just get this far, then I can stop if I want". Often I go farther, and either way it's good for my self esteem because I did SOMETHING.

Hi! I was just struck by some similarities we have-I am also 44 years old and think I'm too young to be so out of shape. By the way, you do not "look old" or "fat" in your picture. I noticed you also have a son-I do too. I'd like to add you as a friend-I like what you wrote in your blogs. Have a great day!
