No More Excuses...

So why am I here? I have been a big girl for the majority of my life. Bad eating habits and lack of nutritional knowledge as a child helped to create the giant that I have become. I have lost 25-30 pounds before, gained it back, lost it, got pregnant, then gained on top of post-pregnancy and ended up at a whopping 285 pounds. I decided that I have had enough! I am putting myself first and I am going to stick it through. I know this journey is not going to be ...

So why am I here? I have been a big girl for the majority of my life. Bad eating habits and lack of nutritional knowledge as a child helped to create the giant that I have become. I have lost 25-30 pounds before, gained it back, lost it, got pregnant, then gained on top of post-pregnancy and ended up at a whopping 285 pounds. I decided that I have had enough! I am putting myself first and I am going to stick it through. I know this journey is not going to be easy, but it will be soooo worth it.

Each day I stay focused and motivated so I make it to my ultimate goal of a healthy and active life. I read motivational pages and numerous success stories and I am inspired by all of the people that have overcome their emotional and psychological issues with food. I always looked at them as if their success was some distant dream I could never achieve. What I have learned from reading and watching all these amazing transformations is that many of these people were just like me at one time. They have inspired me and I hope to one day inspire others as well. I am feeling stronger each day and I know I can do this. WE can do this!

As I have been on this journey I have made several promises to myself that I will put here to remind me of my commitment that I have made:

1) I am human. I will make mistakes and slip along the way, but that does not mean that all is lost. I have to get back on the path ASAP and keep moving forward. In the words of my GPS "recalculating...make a legal u-turn as soon as possible."

2) I will exercise at least 4 days a week. No being lazy. No excuses. Of course I will give my body time to rest, but I have to get up and JUST DO IT!

3) I will track my meals everyday and analyze what I did to make me successful or unsuccessful each week.

4) I will stop being lazy about stretching so I don't injure myself again.

5) I will reward myself along the way. I have to think of what the rewards will be, but I need some incentives along the way.

6) I will log in to my support groups everyday for mutual motivation and support!

7) I will get a minimum of 8 hours of sleep each night which means....no procrastinating during the day/week so I can actually go to bed at a decent time and wake up refreshed.

8) I will have patience with this process. Even though I want this weight to miraculously disappear off of my body overnight, I realize that it will not. I have to work hard each day.

9) I will not be upset when my scale only moves down 1/10 of a pound one week. I will still keep pressing forward.

10) I will make this my lifestyle and not just a lose weight and forget about it bit. This IS my life and I WILL be successful.

Lets do this!!
