A New Me for the New Year

Friday, January 23, 2009

A New year and a New me. I got down to 145 in October of 2008. Over the holidays I lost focus and gained 7 lbs. So this week, I have focused on my eating. I discussed with my husband how difficult is has been to eat healthy at home. At work I do great - the weekends and evening are terrible. He has to help our family make healthy eating choices. He had made a great effort in fixing a juice for us. Everyday now for the last couple of weeks, we use the Jack Lannes power juicer - apples, spinach, tomatoes, carrots, strawberries, and oranges. My kids love it - I do too! A great way to get in fruits and vegatables.


Commit again to losing weight

Monday, September 29, 2008

Once again I have to commit myself to being healthy and living healthy. It is so easy to eat bad - my kids and life keep me running but I obviously am burning only what I am eating. The scale has not moved - the only good part is that the scale has not gone up. So today and everyday is a new commitment - I will not get down on my self for failure but will remember that I don't have to start again tommorrow - I can always start RIGHT NOW!

Happy Birthday to me!

Friday, August 08, 2008

Well, I did not reach my goal of 140 by my birthday - but instead of focusing on what I did not do - I will focus onwhat I did do. I did lose 7lbs in the last 2 months. Slow and steady - this way I know that I will keep it off. I am currently at 148.6. I will never again be in the 150's - without being pregnant-. I have focused on making a lifestyle change with exercise and the foods that I eat. I have another 8-10 lbs that I want to lose and I know that I will get there with my new habits. Everyday is a smaller me. That is the best present that i can give myself! emoticon

Under 150 - YEAH!

Tuesday, August 05, 2008

I finally got under 150. I can't even remember the last time I was able to say that. My family went to New Orleans over the weekend and I ate what I wanted. I was terrified to step on the scale upon our return. To my surprise - my weight stayed the same. Monday morning though I was back to my good eating and fitness habits.
