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

    Wow! It is Fantabulous that your husband is going to do this with you.

Stay connected to the people here. There are a lot of awesome sparkers around.

I believe you can succeed... Making this a lifetime journey will be worth the hard work. Stay focused and don't beat yourself up to much on the down days.

    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!
