As I was watching Celebrity Fit Club last night it dawned on me I was seven pounds away from Bobby Brown and 13% higher in body fat and he is 4" taller than me. I knew I had to change my ways. I decided to go cold turkey on the coffee and chocolate because everyday was my farewell to those delicious items in my life. Superbowl Sunday I pigged out and my team won. Tonight had an intense craving for something sweet to eat but I decided to track my calories, drink a cup of tea, and read an article in a magazine and the craving is now gone. Thank God because I am in all my calorie ranges normally I'm over in carbs, fat, or calories but through a miracle I managed to maintain all calorie ranges. Ladies and gentlemen that is a miracle within itself. I believe a first in Sparkpeople history and I feel full and included fruits and vegetables. It 's a stressful time for me and I decided to make definite changes. I think my son is watching too much tv and I am only allowing 2 hours on the weekdays, and I'm not sure on the weekend. I am working with him everyday for an hour after school. Is it me or is kindergarten curriculum advance? It doesn't matter because we just have to advance with it. My body fat is 43%. I am almost half fat and when I drank 13 glasses of water today, I felt better and fuller. I won't lie.12/15/09 I was 179 and 38% body fat. I was laid off and i baked 6 deep dish sweet potato pies and ate half of each pie along with my husband. Everyday a chocolate bar twice a day along with M&M's. Brewster's Apple dumpling along with cinnamon ice cream knowing the dumpling had 10g of trans fat. I brought new clothes for work and they don't fit. Even my plus size clothes are snugged. At least my husband and I decided we don't need to have something sweet everyday. I don't know how long this will last but for my first day being back, I mean actually in the swing of things, it looks promising.
