I have been a member of Sparks since January 2009. I have been a hit and miss of trying to loss weight and changing to healthier way of eating and living. However, last month, I decided it was time to get serious. I was not losing any weight. Nothing I was doing was consistent.
Realizing that the times that I have lost weight before and change eating habits was when I worked with other people. I know I needed some help, I need something to spark my motivation. So along with some other ladies I attempted to bring Weight Watchers to our job site. That didn't work, however we will have beginning in January a weight management and exercise program started at our job site. Hooray!
However, meanwhile I was not waiting til January to get started. So I have been exercising twice a week in water aerobics. On other days, I walk between 10 to 30 minutes. Yesterday, a colleague asked me to walk with her. So hooray, this will help me.
Every day I pray and tell the Lord " I don't want to be like this any more, please change me" This morning I prayed that prayer. Weekends are generally harder for me when it comes to sticking to my weight loss and exercise plans because nothing is routine and I generally don't follow my plans. But this morning I spiritually prepared for that temptation. Thank you, Lord!
My husband decided to prepare breakfast. Well, the breakfast consisted of a huge grilled pork chop, 2 scrambled eggs, and blueberry cake doughnut! I didn't panic. I went and got a yogurt and an orange. I ate the orange and the yogurt first. My husband made a comment like you must not be hungry, when he saw that had not touch the breakfast that he prepared. He made another comment later but I stuck to my plan. I ate less than a half of the doughnut, and half of the eggs. I cut the several pieces of the pork chop until I had what looked like about 2oz. I left the rest of the pork chop. This is a huge break through for me.
