Still Fighting!

I had already lost 55 pounds on my own when I started using SparkPeople and have now lost more than 90 pounds! My ultimate goal is 110 pounds weight loss.

I exercise 6-7 days a week for at least an hour. I swim, do Zumba/ClubDance, do cardio, lift weights, run slowly and walk outdoors. I dance whenever possible and love authentic Latin dance.

I have several major health challenges, including five different metabolic diseases...if I can do it, anybody can!

Oh you are definitely right about fitness. I get lapped by people 40 years older than me all the time at the gym. Age is just a number when it comes to how fit one can be.

Hope you're having a great afternoon!

I suppose it is very, very little, but to me it's a lot. To learn that I don't have to stuff myself on something every time I eat it would be a valuable lesson for me to pound through my head. I wouldn't weigh what I do if I ate a small fry every time I had fast food. It's the large fry and the multiple sandwiches that have done that. No, fast food is not good for you in any size, but to think I'm going to give it up entirely is unrealistic. I would lose 10 lbs in a year just by switching from a large fry to a small one. I feel like that's a realistic change for me. I know I'd be a lot better off to give it up altogether, but that's just not something I'm willing to commit to.

As for not eating it for a week, I could and have gone a couple weeks without it, but I think it's more important to learn to eat it in moderation than to give it up for a period of time and then end up binging on it when I did eat it. Making a food forbidden would simply make me obsess over it. I've learned that lesson the hard way many times. It may take me a long time, and I may stumble a lot, but every time I choose the small fry over the large one, I'm one tiny step closer to being the person I want to be.

Thanks for commenting on my blog, hope your weekend is getting off to a great start!

You are right, I have been eating fast food and junk food every day lately. The combination of not planning ahead and not being nearly motivated enough is kicking my butt. And you are also right about not bringing it into the house.

I am hoping there will be no restaurant meals, fast food or otherwise, of any kind, consumed until a week from tomorrow. That would help a LOT.

Thanks for the comments, you are absolutely right!

Oh my goodness, I am sure that is scary to have a loved one in a dangerous job! Keep praying for him!

Are you planning any trips this summer or upcoming yea? Since I just had a baby, I am not going to travel until maybe next year.

Keep up the great work!
Thanks for stopping by and saying hi!
