Been working really hard since April! Figured I'd share my progress. 30lbs down, before and after!! It's the same dress!

This Is WHY

Friday, September 02, 2011

As usual my first statement of the day is THIS IS NO DIET!! I have to tell myself that daily, otherwise I fill constrained as if Iím living in a box. That makes eating right unbearable and Iím more susceptible to eat crazily. I tell myself this is my Lifestyle Change. The definition of lifestyle is they way in which one lives.
I can choose a happy, healthy, thin life, or an unhappy, unhealthy, obese life. I will take the healthier one (Thank you very much). This is how I have to live for the rest of my days.
This is why I say this is no diet
This is why I chose to follow Sparkpeople
This is why I make healthier choices
This is why I workout
This is why I keep two pictures of me around, one of the old me and one of the new and constantly improving me.

Itís difficult but its worth it.
Itís worth it because I see the pounds dropping
Itís worth it because I see the inches coming off
Itís worth it because my confidence level has increased
Itís worth it because Iíve added time to my life expectancy

I get up every morning with this on my mind and I take it with me daily, and live by the hour, minute, even the second. That this is NO DIET! This is my lifestyle . . . my life. Living a healthy life style is hard work very hard work. Every day I make decisions on what I'm going to put into my body and how it's going to change my life. So today at work my co-workers called me up and asked if I want to pitch in to get Chinese food. My stomach was screaming YES, YES! So I said let me think about it. I thought, and thought, and when I went to my co-worker she said if you think long you think wrong. So I said okay, I'm in. I came back to my desk and the entire walk I felt horrible as if I walking on death row or something. I just couldn't see myself doing it. My weigh-in was successful on Tuesday and I was happy and in a good place. So I told them, I just can't do it. I've set a goal for myself and I'm going to make a decision today that I can live with. Thanks for including me but no thanks.

This Is No Diet!

Wednesday, August 17, 2011

It took me some time, but I now realize this is no diet that I'm on. This is my lifestyle. I have to do this every day for the rest of my life, if I want to get the weight off and keep it off. I have to make a decision on what I decide to put into my body every single day. Actually every single hour. I know the consequences if I have a candy bar or a beer. So I think long and hard and I make choices that I can live with. I love snicker bars, but I love the way my size 12 jumpsuit fit me yesterday. So instead of a candy bar in my mouth you will see me snacking on some healthy protein or vegetables. emoticon
