I care about myself so I am back. I give THANKS to GOD, My daughter is also my inspiration, she has battled her weight all her life like ME. She has been watching her carbs and has went down a several sizes, she just bought a few shorts and they were size 8, she has never been a size 8, I'm so proud of her but at the same time I have been worrying because she has not been eating enough, most of the time under 1200. I told her I don't want her to go below 1200 and she is trying to find food low in carbs and finding it hard. BUT she has been walking for exercise which is great, I told her it is not healthy to go under 1200. I started exercising too, I walked on my treadmill 4 times, went on walks outside with my family twice. and today I took a walk today by myself. I have been trying to get in more protein and drinking a lot of water but I don't know what exactly to eat, I have been thinking of the high protein but I know fiber is important too. so I am not sure whats best. I plan to go to the store today and see what I can find.
I have been watching Joyce Meyers and Joel Osteen and they give me inspiration also, Gos cares about us, we are his children and what we need GOD will help us with what we need, I rely on GOD for all things even my weight loss, I pray for the willpower to turn down food I know is not going to help me reach my goal, but also I know I will not ever be perfect so I will eat some of those foods but not as often. I pray for the desire and energy to exercise. Joyce said show GOD you are expecting what you pray for will happen so I bought a pair of jeans a smaller size and I know I will get into them soon.
I love this site and all my friends i have made on here, sparkpeople and my friends have been on my mind I was worried about coming back because I don't know how many days I will come on here, I want to every day but like exercise I don't know how many times I will. But I plan to at least 5 times a week. I know when I am on here i do better. I'm just confused what to eat, should I count calories like I did all my life? should I go on the high protein diet like my daughter. and still count my calories or just forget about the calories and concentrate on protein? I just don't know, what I do know is exercise is VERY IMPORTANT and eating healthy is too
