When weight comes off easily without me having to think about eating healthy and working out it puts into perspective that when I was unhappy it was harder to lose weight. In the last year I have added baby boy number three, Levi, been in a healthy and very happy relationship, and been able to keep going to school, while work on a creative outlet that makes me happy. Right now my life feels complete, happy, the way it should be. For so long I was unhappy, and for so long I struggled with the weight. Now for the first time losing weight and being healthy is as easy as tying my shoes. I just don't think about it anymore. It's just habit. The way it should be.

My number one excuse for not getting healthy sooner was: I just don't have the time. It was working for a long time, that small excuse. Now that I have been living life healthier I am finding that I have more time. Who would of known? More time, and more energy, and feeling a little bit more satisfied in life.
I used to not get in much physical activity. I was a coach potato really. Now every break at work I go for a walk (exception to lunch when I enjoy my chicken salad and soup) and then 3 to 4 times a week I do a DVD exercise program like Tae Bo or JIllian Micheals.
Eating healthier has saved time too. I cook in bulk and its so easy to throw a recipe together now. Shopping is quicker now that I mainly shop on the perimeter of the store.
And now I have energy, and those days I didnt have time.... it wasn't about time. I didn't have energy. Now I do, and my boys and I are having a blast with it.
So ya, I feel a little silly now.

I am confident the reason I have struggled, and yo-yo dieted for years is because I never found that moment, that real moment in time where I had enough of being overweight. My i had it moment came when I was looking at pictures on facebook at the karokee bar I go to and seeing what I really looked like, wasn't what I was seeing in the mirror. I don't want to be that girl on facebook, I want to be a healthy happy girl, and I am making progress getting there.
I love to exercise now, I look forward to it. Never had that with any "diet" I have been on.
I love to eat new veggies. Love fruit smoothies and an almond crunch bar for breakfast.
Just love living. Its awesome when somedays I track at the end of the day and see even though I wasnt tracking every meal at the time it was eaten, I knew in my mind what was best to eat and how much.

I am feeling rather refreshed this morning, I started a new 6 week 3 hour a night aerobic class through the college I go to, and after last nights run/jog I'm feeling more energetic then ever. I also learned something rather powerful as well. My teacher said "start goals on where you are now, and not where you wish you were." He said if you could only run to the first tree that's fine. Just build on from there. He said that's why so many people make unachievable goals, there goals are just too big, so they fall short and throw in the towel.
So before our walk last night, I thought about what he said. He said you can either: walk, jog, run, or combine. For a tougher workout I told myself, lets run and jog. I ended up running 5 minutes, jogging 10, and walking 5. I am so proud of myself. Maybe by the end of this 6 weeks I can run/jog 20. I think it's possible.
