Time to get serious!

Wednesday, June 01, 2011

OK, it's June 1 and I've been unemployed for 1 year (as of June 4). I've done nothing but gain since I was told I'd be laid off and I'm now back to the weight when I started with Spark in December, 2005. My daughter will be a senior this year, which means LOTS of family pictures. I don't like the way I look.

So, today I am recommitting myself to get this weight off!

My challenges are mostly when I'm home during the day. I need to refocus on my walking and water consumption. Then, as I get those habits in line, I will find other small habits I can incorporate. Hopefully, by the time I go back to work (I was asked to return in a part-time capacity), I can be 15-20 pounds lighter : )

    Here's to hoping we can both do it! I gained back all I lost too. Let's both try for a good summer.

    Being out of work is sooo hard. I was out for 10 months and the only thing that kept me moving was my dog. Hang in there and keep walking:) Mary

    It tough staying focused while at home but I know that you can develop some new habits and reestablish some old ones.

    I'm with you with recomitting!! emoticon I finally found one of those mixes you put in your water that I like. I use one pouch for every 32 oz of water. I'm up to 4 glasses right now. I normally only get 4 a day in. It took a while but I finally found one. emoticon
