been awhile but motivated
Friday, July 06, 2012
with being a new mom I don't make it on to sp these days. I have switched to using fitness pal on my iphone and I really like it. I have sp on my phone but I never could get it to work right. Anyhow I am motivated to lose weight. I am 10 lbs away from pre pregnancy weight and I would like to be back to pre pregnancy weight when school starts in august or as close as possible. There are some family events coming up in the next year that are keeping me motivated. I am bound and determined not to be the "heavy" sibling in the picture. At the 4th of July party was the first time there was a picture of Abigail and I where I felt good about myself. Most of the other pictures I have a double chin going on or still look prego. Its funny how old habits die hard. When I was a kid and my mom would go to the grocery store my siblings and I would raid the junk food when she got home. A package of cookies would not last long so it was like everyman for himself and we would all eat way more cookies than we should. I had the idea if I don't eat these cookies now they will be gone tomorrow. For some reason I can still be this way today even though its just my husband and me. I don't believe i have to deprive myself of things I like cookies etc.. but to have them in portion control and log the calories. But whenever I can think the ice cream will still be there tomorrow it makes it easier to say no to having some today because I don't have to eat it just because its there.
