So they say it takes at least 2 weeks to break a habit...well I am on week 3 and things seem good. They are starting to get easier and easier, and the best part is it's easier to make the right decisions.
I have realizedthat I feel much better eating healthy instead of badly, and with that realization I've been able to turn down more and more food. Today our boss brought in red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, heart suckers, and then another lady brought in more chocolate. I'm just pretending the cupcakes aren't there, and I gave all my candy away!!!! YAY ME!!!

You see that number??? I broke down an bought a scale. I'm trying this new lifestyle change and that is the goal number...one day I will weigh 135.2...LOL.
Things have been going great the last few days...I don't know why I think it's so hard to eat healthy because I have SOOOOO much more energy, my body feels great, and my self esteem is boosted.
So, why do I think it would be better to eat junk food, be tired, and not feel great about myself...I don't know. I'm coming to terms now that it's not about the weight I lose and being discouraged, instead it's about making me feel good.
My new years resolution was to put me first. Being a mom of 2 and a wife to another sometimes you can get pushed to the wayside and make sacrifices like not getting a hair cut for a year, or go get a pedicure, or buy the make up you want, because you could pay bills with that. Well this year I'm not allowing myself to give excuses...I am going to take care of me!

Yes ladies you're reading that, but I don't think you know how the direction of this story will go...
I only ate 1 french fry! I was able to have a starch and had whipped up some mash potatoes...but of course my hubby who is 6'4" and weighs a whole 180 would of course eat McDonalds....I'm telling you we should buy stock in it with the way he eats it. Any how I was sooo proud of myself for just eating 1!!!!
I'm also proud of myself for making a concious decision regarding food. Someone in the office got Teriyaki, and it sounded soooo good, but I said to myself, does it sound good because you're hungry, or does it sound good because of your past...I chose the later because I wasn't hungry and I didn't need it. I did the same thing with Quizno....although I'm fairly sure you can make Quiznos work. But it's just making the concisous decision not to eat because I can, but eat because I need to.

Well sort of. I am feeling better, but I just can't kick myself in the butt enough to be as motivated as I was in the beginning. Like before I was SOOOOO excited to eat healthy and work out all the time, but since my sister came and left I just CAN'T get it together.
Now I have it together in certain areas....I'm still eating healthy, relatively healthy, but I just can't get my butt in gear to exercise! Can't this all just be easy. I mean they say it's going to take a while to get the weight off because it took a while to put on, but it wasn't painful to put on. I didn't have sore muscles, hunger pains, sore knees, hurt ankles when I put the weight on, so why does it have to be so painful to take off! UGH!
I just need to start exercising. I do know that coming on here is great motivation. I see a TON of people who have lost sooo much weight and it gets me motivated because I want that to be me, but I'm like so many other people...I want it right now and when I don't see a huge difference then I give up. Don't get me wrong I lost 8 lbs in a month which is spectacular, but is my subconcious secretly sabotaging me because I don't think it's specatcular enough?
Oh someone help me!!!!
