one week bites the dust

Monday, October 17, 2011

Wow my first week of my new diet and exercise plan is over! I am so proud of myself for completing one week. I did have one day where I thought this was pointless, and didn't know if I could make it, but I never gave up. For the whole week the only negative thing I ate was one chocolate chip cookie, but on the positive side I did stay in my means of calories and fat and carbohydrates every day. I have exercised or recorded it at least four days in the seven. My husband has finally decided to join me on this life long journey. I know I can do this; I just have to remember it doesn't happen over night. I think that is the hardest thing for me to remember, because it feels like I put the weight on over night. I have talked to some wonderful people here, and I know this is a great community to be apart of. You know it is crazy, because gaining all this weight has been real hard on me. When I was pregnant with my son, I was extremely ill, and wound up on bed rest. Well because of that I gained almost a hundred pounds in the last two months of my pregnancy. I was devastated to say the least. Eventually after having my son I tried to start exercising again, and well wound up in two sever accidents, and again was put out of commission for a long time. Doctors didn't know if I would be able to walk let alone exercise, but I over came that. Now that I am almost two hundred pounds over weight, and I have nobody to blame but myself I am ready to make a change. I know that it is going to be a long hard process, but I think I am ready to make this change. One of the positive things is that my eating habits (well when I actually eat) are good I love fruits and vegetables, and can't stand fast food. Today I did forty five minutes or aerobics, and I feel awesome. I hope I can keep up this stretch of feeling good about myself. emoticon

    You have already overcome so much - you can do this too! Each choice is its own - do not lend each choice any more (or any less!) importance than that. If this choice is good, build on it. If this choice isn't the best, make a better one next time. I am proud of you and your winning attitude!
