Here I go again!

Monday, August 13, 2012

Here I go again. Last night I realized that I have been fooling myself on this weight loss journey. I need to recommit to a healthy lifestyle. I have used excuses as to why I can't exercise or why I am not losing when in reality, it is ME! I am today, 8-13-12 starting my life over again, hopefully for the final time. I was watching the extreme makeover and realized that I could be that woman. 200 lb overweight and doing nothing about it. She was 45. I am 65 and I hope to be here to see my grandchildren married and with children of their own. If I don't change my eating habits and get back to exercise, I won't be here to witness these milestones in my life. Funny how things happen. I have watch lots of weight loss shows, but I guess you have to find someone that you also see in yourself. It just clicked last night and I am going to give it my all this time. Hopefully this will be my year to be healthy by Christmas!

On the road to full bloom!

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

Decided today to put my feeling down in words. I am usually not someone who does this, but figured it would help me.

I feel like this time I am in control of ME! It has been a while since I felt this way. I am eager to stick with my food and now I am working hard to get back into the exercise phase. What do I want for ME? I want my body back and to feel young and have the energy I had when I was thinner. In 2004 I weighed 140. As of last weigh in 187.2. My new goal is going to be 150. I can maintain that so much better and I am happy with my body at that weight. That is 37 lb to lose! I know now that this is not something I can do and not make it a part of my future life. It has to be a lifestyle change to keep the weight off. I also know that there will be nothing that I can't have once this weight is off if only I learn portion control. I feel I am on my path to success.

Exercise

Sunday, October 03, 2010

Today I got my two mile walk in. Trying to be consistant with exercise. I have to make myself do it, but I will make it a part of each day when possible.

Ninja belts

Friday, October 01, 2010

Today I started my belts. I am feeling good about the fact that today I decided I have to get with it and get this weight off. So, I took a long walk and have stuck to the food all day.

    I am in the BL14 losers and on a team called the Pink Ninjas. We have belts that we earn by doing different things that are asigned for each belt. Not real belts like you can actually earn. Hope that helps.
