Where to begin?? Well I guess I should admit that I think I'm addicted to this site! I've never felt better about eating better and changing my physical activity then I have these past few days. And it's super weird because although the people you talk to are complete strangers at first, their support makes me feel like it's what I need to get through. Yesterday I was in the car thinking about what I would have for lunch, which was going to have to be from some fast food reasturant! I did good though, I went through McDonalds and got a southwest chicken salad, hold the chicken (because it added more fat and cals plust I had McDonalds Meat! ) That only had 140 cals in it and then 4.5 grams of fat without dressing. So I dribbled my lime juice on it and chowed down, I was proud! But anyway, I got to thinking of this site because I go on here and check out food calories and I smiled. Yes, I smiled to myself. I just got to thinking about the few people that I have talked to so far and how much they have already inspired me to keep going. Even with just a one e-mail or comment they have impacted my decisions. Is that crazy?? I dont' think so!!!
I'm just really excited about having a site where people can come together and support eachother and get help from others to achieve their goals. Even people that have achieved their weight loss goals are still here for support and to help others, I think they're amazing!! The only negative thing I would have to say (no no, put away your pitchforks!!) is that we're trying to get up and get moving, but at the same time you are trying to earn all these points, which involves sitting on your bum browsing the site. I know, I know, I've gotten a lot of mine for searching recipes and such, but I could sit here all day and read blogs, I love them!! I send my husband off to work, feed the boys, get some water, and then sit for about an hour before I start my workout. Well, of course come back through out the day. But I'm just saying, it could be dangerous!! Mostly for me...
Ok, totally off track. I was just wanting to say thank you!! Thank you to everyone who has taken time out of their lives, in the past and for the future, to send me good lucks and best wishes and keep up the good work!! I truly appreciate it and know that I couldn't do it without you're kind words!!! I've told my husband this is kind of like the myspace for people that are trying to lose weight
