Well, I started my diet on Saturday morning May 12th. I usually only stick to them for a day sometimes part of the second day, I admit, I am not very good at setting goals and sticking to them. I get bored so easily....especially when I diet. I always find ways to get around my diet or workout. There would be times I would be hungry and wait until time to go into town to get something to eat....of course fast food. YUCK! I would buy healthier foods and start to eat them but everyone else was eating this food that was fattening and greasy, and full of calories. It looked so good and was so tempting. (I had no will power either lol). I would work out for a day, maybe two days in a row and then I would just stop. I would find other things to do, make up excuses on why I didn't or couldn't do them. My favorite terrible excuses were things like, I didn't sleep at all last night and I am really tired I just want to lay down for a little bit or; well I am going to go take a shower and THEN I will do my workout for the day or; I would be laying down or sitting in the living room watching a movie and my excuse was I am too busy, I don't have time today. This time seems different. It may be that none of my clothes are fitting, it may be that last month my little black dress became my WAY too little black dress. I do know that this time I am motivated, I am ready to do this! No excuses this time! I have done great so far, I have been eating basically the same things, but in moderation now. I have been eating breakfast (which is one of my least fave things to do), drinking more water and actually doing my workouts (not just in my mind anymore)! I am really excited, I have a wonderful support group this go round. My husband, Tim, who is absolutely amazing! He encourages me and is pushing me the extra little push I need to be motivated. He is kind of like my personal trainer, and when I get tired and dont want to do anymore, he will tell me, you are NOT giving up! :) My amazing kids, they are wonderful as well. They are really giving me words of encouragement and trying to push me that extra little bit also. They offer to workout with me at home, walk with me and even jog with me. But not only them, I have family that is also trying to fight the battle of weight loss. My sister, who I am sooo proud of, has lost 25 pounds in two months! And my mom, whom I am also super proud of, is just beginning her diet again, but over the last 5 years has lost around 200 pounds! I know that if they can do this with their true busy and chaotic lives, then surely I can do it with my "I don't want to workout today, Im busy" busy life. I am really happy that I am on SparkPeople again and this time I am going to have awesome results to show for it!
