I've been waiting for that Aha moment forever. Today I decided I just needed to forget about light bulbs going off and create my own motivation.
There comes a time in every person's life where they have to decide if they are going to live their life or let their life live them. I want to LIVE MY LIFE. By letting all the things that drive me to the refrigerator or send me through the drive thru rule how I live, I'm letting my life live me. No more. I am now living my life. I control food, it does not control me. It's a struggle, we do battle every day, I don't win every battle, but I'm winning the war. One day I will declare victory. I give no quarter, I will not surrender, defeat is not an option!
I want to feel beautiful again, that's the ultimate goal, but for now... I'd just like to be a little less fat in my college graduation pictures. We're going to Disney after graduation and I wouldn't mind feeling a little more confident about flying on a plane (and only needing one seat!) and looking a little better in a bathing suit. The first weight goal is 50 lbs. then we'll go from there.
2 wks in... I am doing 2mls of Walk Away the Pounds with Leslie Sansone Mon, Wed, and Fri as well as strenth and toning on those days. The other days I am doing one mile with Walk Away the Pounds.
I'm eating between 1200 and 1550 calories a day and not beating myself up if I go over once in a while. I'm down 11 lbs, 1 inch in the waist, and 1 inch on the neck! Yay!
I'm from Missouri, I have 2 kids (2 yr. old son and 4 yr. old daughter), an awesome husband, and a great dane. I'm getting ready graduate from college in May with degrees in English and Writing. I'm also working on my certification to teach Middle School Communication Arts.
Stuff I like:
Books! I love books, everything from romance, sci-fi, fantasy, mystery, paranormal, just about everything.
I also love to write. Right now I'm working on a huge fantasy series, but have written all kinds of stories and books. I hope to be published one day.
