On the road to full bloom!

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

Decided today to put my feeling down in words. I am usually not someone who does this, but figured it would help me.

I feel like this time I am in control of ME! It has been a while since I felt this way. I am eager to stick with my food and now I am working hard to get back into the exercise phase. What do I want for ME? I want my body back and to feel young and have the energy I had when I was thinner. In 2004 I weighed 140. As of last weigh in 187.2. My new goal is going to be 150. I can maintain that so much better and I am happy with my body at that weight. That is 37 lb to lose! I know now that this is not something I can do and not make it a part of my future life. It has to be a lifestyle change to keep the weight off. I also know that there will be nothing that I can't have once this weight is off if only I learn portion control. I feel I am on my path to success.
