Hi, I'm looking to heal my body, get stronger and lose weight -- in that order! Hyper-extended my right knee mid-March and have been in physical therapy since, and hurt it again last Friday night - ouch! Needless to say it put a damper on my birthday plans but I'm MORE DETERMINED THAN EVER to FIX MYSELF!!!

All this pain I've been in over the past few weeks has really CHANGED my mindset. I KNOW what I must DO NOW to HEAL MYSELF physically and KNOCK some of this weight off!!

I HAVE A PLAN.... I know I'm going to have to keep up my leg strengthening exercises from therapy and my back (because my siatiaca kicked in too - UGH) exercises EVERYDAY FOREVER!

I am joining the YMCA so I can make use of their gym and swimming pool which is easy on the joints! AND I'm working with my hypothyroid doctor on my changing the way I eat. I am going GLUTEN-FREE and DAIRY-FREE in light of my recent sensitivities to these foods in the past several years .... they're no longer working for me and I see such a difference in just cutting back on them in the past two weeks by 80%.

I NEED to be here for the two LOVES OF MY LIFE -- my precious little girl (who I prayed and prayed for after 2 previous miscarriages), she is the JOY of my LIFE and my wonderful husband, he is the LOVE of my LIFE. I LOVE THEM with all my heart and I AM LEARNING to put MYSELF first so I can take care of them!

I've learned how to NOT BE SO PERFECT and ANAL about journaling and keeping up with what I eat each day ... I've STOPPED beating myself up if I didn't write each day -- life with a 3 year old and her busy schedule is ENOUGH, and when I can write I do -- especially when I need to write about my day more so than what I've eaten or not eaten ... writing my feelings and thoughts and experiences is more important to me that what I did or didn't eat each day ....

SO THAT's WHERE I AM TODAY -- May 16, 2011

I WILL REVIEW these thoughts in 6 months time with MUCH SUCCESS I KNOW!!!

THE COST OF BEING FAT has taken it's toll on my body for THE LAST TIME!!! THIS IS IT -- THIS IS NOW -it's TIME TO MAKE A CHANGE NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!

My Goals:
Goal #1 - Get back to post baby weight, 216!!

Goal #2 - Make exercise a daily PRIORITY

Goal #3 - Make better food choices everyday

My Program:
Start each day with warm lemon tea or apple cider vinegar tea.

Eat lots of fruits, veggies, chicken, turkey and tuna in olive oil -- basically preservative free

Try to each fresh foods, no preservatives as much as possible, dark choclate, limit junk and fast foods

No dairy and no whole wheat, just found out I have sensitivities to these products. Eat carbs (white pasta/bread) once a week. Use sprout bread only and limit daily servings to 1.
