ok, I've been trying to manage eating without recording each and every meal and while no i've not gained weight...my weight loss has slowed down...now this could be just a point in the journey where that happens or more likely my less reliant way of calorie counting...so i've tested my theory...only to have proven to myself that it is sooooo important to document each and every calorie...reason for me personally is...i do better when i see it in writing...so sneaking bits and bites of cakes and snack size candies...those are so dangerous to ones goals...
so i had hoped by this may to have reached 240...i'm at 267 now...that means about 15pds a month...i'm saying the end of may...my birthday is the 25th and i'll be fourty years old...my gift to myself is to hit 240...and the year after 150-160...i know i'll do it i can do it, i believe this with all my heart, i'm exercising and once again, counting calories...my hope is renewed...as my son and i have a lot planned this summer, swimming, walking, riding bikes...things i've not done in years and years...and my energy is better, i clean rental properties daily and am like the energizer bunny, but still need to add strength training as i'm flabby, but moved tons of boxes yesterday...and furniture, so am resting as we speak...it is rainy and i feel like surfing the web, making artdolls, doll clothes...did i ever mention, i'm just a big ol' kid in a grown persons body????
ohh another really exciting thing in my life is our garden...we're planting a rather large garden, which includes my all time favorite....strawberries and melons....lots of neat activities for exercise in my near future....hope every one is as excited about spring as i am, and i apologize for any comments i've not responded too...my life has been extra busy...i'll do better,,,,big big hugz...christen
