Back on it

Wednesday, August 11, 2010

Somehow, about 6 months ago, I stopped. Stopped watching what I eat and stopped exercising. I didn't have the time, energy or motivation. It was a very stressful time, but now, thank goodness, it's over.

About 3 weeks ago I stepped on the scale and was horrified to discover that I had gained 10 pounds. I'm a small person who is already significantly overweight, so I really, really didn't need 10 more.

It proved to be just the right motivation. I started South Beach the next day, and I've lost those 10 pounds. But more importantly, I feel great. I have more energy than ever. I feel 10 years younger!

    Congratulations! I can relate. I'm 45, the mom of 4, homeschool and help run the family business. about 10 years ago, life "got too busy for me" and I put on about 25 pounds. After carrying the extra weight around for 8-10 years, my blood pressure noticed! I found out a month ago that my blood pressure was almost in the "high" category, and WHAT MOTIVATION! In the 4 weeks I have been paying attention to what I eat, I've lost 8 pounds, and have added cardio and a little strength training to my routine, and am beginning to feel the benefits. It is good to have something to motivate us!
