I went to see the Nutritionist today. It was fun. She had some great ideas for quick and simple meals that are healthy. I tend to get into a rut very easily, especially at dinner time. So I'm making out my grocery list and will go shopping for things tomorrow. I'll also be making a weekly menu to follow each day for each meal and snacks. I'll have this completed by tomorrow in time for my grocery trip. the daily/weekly menu will be posted at eye level on the fridge - so in case I'm tempted, I can see my plan and go forth!

The nutritionist has me making an appt with my primary care Dr to get all of my blood work done (annual physical) she also suggested that I ask the Dr for a referral to a food disorder specialist (therapist). No big surprise to me right there. But I need it and I know I do. So it's all okay. I'll go do all of this willingly because I want more than anything to be healthy. I want to feel good, have energy, play hardcore with my kids at all their favorite sports (I'm such a tom boy!) and most of all, be here to watch them grow up. I still can't believe I ever let myself get this way.

But here I am, as I've said before... Here I AM...

    I've been so busy that I haven't been able to keep up on the blogs I've been tracking. I just finished reading all of yours and think you are on the right path. Good job for taking the inititive! Very impressive.

    I know what you mean by wanting to keep up with your kids and being able to play sports and things with them. That is one of my motivations as well.

    I just thought I'd mention that I have created a team called High School Sports. No one else has joined as of now but I started it for people like you and I who have kids who like sports. It's a place where we can talk about what our kids are doing and what we think and goals and things like that. I have also set up a challenge that involves being active in sports with others. Doesn't matter who and if there is no one else even just yourself. It's to motivate people to be more active and include others. I set it up as I do play sports with my kids and this is a big motivational point for me. It gives me activity and helps me burn calories while I am being involved with my children and spending great time with them. Just thought you might be interested. Check it out. Again it is call High School Sports team you can find a quick link to it under the teams I am on on my SparkPage.

    Good luck on reaching your goals and keep us up-to-date.
