I have struggled over the past year and a half or so. Too much stress and too many changes have made it tough, I am trying to work through this though. I have gained about 30 pounds, mostly due to lack of exercise and horrible eating habits. I think I am a binger. I used to only eat one piece of dessert that I made, and then the rest went to hubby and kids. Now I take only little bites, but those bites turn into whole pieces or even more than one piece, not good! I am now about 10 pounds away from my highest weight, somewhere I never wanted to be again. I also don't want to go buy bigger clothes, I want to fit into my old ones.
So, I have a goal to work towards. My sister recently got married at the court house. They are having a reception on May 19, so that gives me a little over a month to lose some weight. My goal is around 8 pounds, but as long as my clothes fit better, that is all I care about right now. I forgot how yucky I felt at over 200 pounds, and I never want to feel that way again. Hubby and I bought new bikes and have gotten out twice so far and it felt great. Only went about 3 miles each time because we had the kids with us, but I plan on getting out more by myself or with my step mil soon. I need to do this. I will be doing a no sugar challange in a few weeks. I am also cutting out dairy and wheat due to nasal problems and wheat to see if it is causing intestinal issues. This means eating healthy and hopefully feeling better.
I need to work out the details of my plan, but just eating healthier and exercising 3-4 days a week should be a good start.
