I got out of bed tired, had coffee and was still tired driving to work!
I ate on the way to work, at work breakfast and lunch, on the way home and when I got home... and then I would snack -- never considered tracking calories (What a shock it was when I started!)
Even before I finished one meal I was planning my next one!
I was tired alllllllllll day
I couldn't get up in the morning because I was so tired from doing NOTHING!
I had to keep buying bigger cloths!
I could only buy cloths that fit at specialty stores or over the internet
I never thought I could exercise. Let alone do it every day.
I never thought I could limit my favs or do without them for a while (pizza and chinese!)
I stopped on the way home from work and bought 2 diet sodas for the ride home, water was not always my beverage of choice
I had to lean on the railing all the way up my front steps
Alas, my friends, the tides have turned.
I drink water when I get up! I wait to have coffee until I get to work and I am down to 1 cup a day!
I get up out of bed a little tired (everyone is when they first wake up) and hit the exercise and after a minute or two I am rocking!
I get up early to MAKE SURE that I can exercise
I eat a healthy breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner --- All for under 1300 calories a day and I am NEVER hungry or thinking about my next meal. I have to make myself eat lunch sometimes because I know I need to to get healthy.
Even without my coffee, I am rocking and rolling on the way to work. Don't remember the last time I was so tired my car refused to stay in the correct lane.
I am fitting into smaller cloths that I had tucked away
I bought some exercise capris at WALMART! Not a specialty store!!
I exercise, I look forward to it AND I do it 2x a day for a total of 60 minutes MINIMUM!
I don't even crave my favs anymore because I am so satisfied with all my fruits and veggies!
I drink water, water and more water all day long. Usually I drink about 12 cups a day - easily
I can get up the stairs just using the railing like a normal person!!
Yes, I have made many positive changes and accomplished things I never thought I could accomplish. I get depressed when I think about how far I still have to go to 'love' my body, but I am motivated! I am determined! And most of all.... I AM NOT ALONE!!
I have let others in! I have let all of you in. I have let my hubby in! I have let my son in! I have let my sister and my best friend in! I am NOT ALONE in the journey this time and that, my friends, is an incredible motivator!
Peace and friendship to all of you! Your the best!
