Stolen from a friends blog... who stole it from a friends blog, LOL!
1.Why I am over weight?
Because I am addicted to food and I am lazy... such a horrible horrible combination. Sometimes I will eat just to eat. I will have to stop myself and make myself think "are you hungry". 9 times out of 10 the answer is NO! But sometimes I just don't question it and eat. Buffets are soooooo bad for me because I really don't know when to stop! And I am addicted to TV. I am convinced that my TV has made me lazy. I would rather sit on the couch and watch. I have tried the whole, put the tv in my workout room thing and really for me, it does not help. The entire time I think to myself that this would be so much more relaxing to watch if I wasn't moving and it cuts my workout in half.
2.Why do I want to lose weight?
I don't want to be the FAT mom. I don't want my kids to be embarassed to have me around. I don't want my kids to worry about my health. And I want to lead by example. I don't want my kids to worry about weight either. I want them to be raised understanding that exercise is fun and necessary. That eating veggies is necessary. That portion control is key!
3.Why have I been unable to maintain?
Because I am easily distracted. I am looking for distractions. I have to stop treating this as though it is a temporary thing. Honestly, I think a part of me truely believes that skinny people don't have to do anything. WRONG! They have to count their calories and they have to workout too. I need to commit to this FOREVER!
4.What will I do to correct my weight problem?
STOP WATCHING TV DURING THE WEEK! Really, I am not even going to turn it on. I am going to exercise! TRACK MY FOOD INTAKE AND WATER INTAKE. The only time I lose is when I actually track my food intake. The only way I get all my water in is if I track it as well. DON'T GET DISTRACTED. A vacation is not an excuse to fall completely off the wagon! I have to stay on track always. AND LOG ONTO SPARK DAILY!
