Ready for a Life Change!!!

I have struggled with becoming overweight since high school and have been up and down on the scale since. I made many bad food decisions after getting married and I am determined to get into a bikini. I am blessed to have a hubby that has never made me feel bad about my weight, but I'm ready to be that woman that he met all those years ago when my weight was under control. Most of all, I want to be a Mom someday who is a great role model for her kids! It would be great to get into shape before ...

Most of all, I want to be a Mom someday who is a great role model for her kids! It would be great to get into shape before pregnancy. I can't wait to meet the woman who has wanted to live this life as a size 6. My weakness is staying motivated over a long period and I'm ready to make a REAL life change!!!

I'm proud that I've managed to keep off 13 pounds lost earlier this year, so that gives me a little boost. This time I'm only focusing on day-by-day, meal-by-meal. In the past, I used to do all or nothing and be extreme with "quitting" all of my bad habits cold turkey. Then I'd become frustrated when I didn't see the progress after two weeks of strict dedication. This time, I'm celebrating the little successes: can I be successful for this meal? Yes, only two meals to go today. Can I be successful in these last few hours before bedtime and not snack, not go over my calories? Yes, let me find something to do to distract myself until bedtime. I've found that my most "tempting" hours are between 6-9pm, so I've counteracted that by using "distractions" and not thinking about food.
I'm hoping by setting small goals and achieving small successes, I'll win my "big success" overall!

My Program:
-Controlling my calories to around 1500.

- Eating meat, veggies and fruit mostly.
- Visualizing what I'll look like and feel when I get to my goal.
- Using photos of me back when I was at my ideal weight.

-Reading success stories and follow people who've "made it."

Other Information:
I love Dave Ramsey! I'd like to translate my discipline on money to food...I'm working on my getting out-of-debt program.

I love reading about others' success stories, and seeing before and after photos, it is so INCREDIBLE! Can't wait to BE THERE!

OMG you're back on Spark!! This is the cherry to the top of my Sunday! :) I am doing well! I gained back all of the weight I had lost a few summers ago but I am working on getting it off again. I've lost 11 pounds this year so far. I also joined a gym this week and so far I love it..it's really given me a reason to be more active. How are you? How have you been??

Celebrate victories on the scale and OFF the scale. The scale and the mirror lie where the clothing and the tape measure don't. Don't restrict the foods you love, but cut back. You have to enjoy life. YOU CAN DO IT! Take it one day at a time. Hugs!!

WORK hard! Start out slow, but give it everything you've got when you do work out. good music helps. Always have goals. Set small goals. Instead of setting one big weight loss goal in your head, take it 10 lbs at a time.

Keeping logging everything you eat, good and bad. One lesson I learned is that your body keeps an accurate account of what you eat whether you honestly track it or not. Celebrate the good days and make notes of how to make bad days better tomorrow.
