January 4, 2010 I decided to truly change what I am doing with my life. It is so hard to believe that my weight loss goal has not been acheived. I have tried so many other times but this really feels like it is the time. I have succeeded in many other goals in my life. Education, marriage, children, etc but weight loss has been the hardest. I know I need to work out more and eat less but the idea and the reality are two different things.
In high school I was very athletic, working out 5 or 6 times a week and then when I went to college I had to put myself through by working full time and going to school full time. Between projects due, a relationship brewing and working it did not leave much time for anything else. Swimmers burn lots of calories and the fact that I was a swimmer and could yet anything and stay moderately thin didn't teach me portion control!! Well Sparkpeople.. here it goes. I need inspiration and motivation. I have it running through my bones and it feels good. I have almost been going for a month. I have only eaten one meal out of the house which is a big change from what we were doing. I am planning my food for the week and it is great. I can't say there are days that I would love to drive through somewhere but I just keep driving. Lets hope my success continues.
My older son Matthew ate the corn on his plate tonight without me asking. He also ate the little bit of pork and potatoes. He did not complain about the meal either. It made me happy. The children are adapting well but everytime we go to LifeTime Fitness the entire way home my youngest is asking to drive through every restaurant.. I wonder if we have created monsters!?! Well I want to get my workout in so have good night.
