Has it been that long? What have I been up to or not?

Friday, July 20, 2012

Wow, it has been over a month since I blogged. My goal was once a week. I guess I could say life got in the way. So much has been happening family wise, all good things though.

I continue to struggle on the sugary/fatty stuff. I stll enjoy them. What can I say? Am I a failure because I do? No. I am trying to cut it down. I don't think I can cut it out all together. What keeps me here is the fact that I need to lose the weight. I am not necessarily looking to hit a specific weight. I am looking to hit a size 12. For me that would be a size from high school. Right now, I am an 18. I can feel inches going away. Clothes fit better, still not close to being in the next size down, but I will get there.

Right now, I continue to go to the gym 4-5 days a week. 2 of those days are workouts with the personal trainer I hired. He is a welcome addition to the program. I also get in my water for the day. I have cut back on soda.

I am going to work on recording EVERYTHING I eat, just not what I feel like recording. By not recording everything, I am lying to myself about what goes in my body.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.

    You are making great progress. It is tough to cut out everything we love. Rome wasn't built in a day.

    That sounds amazing! you're still going to the gym and a personal trainer, wow!!!!

    I have the same problem with sweets, it is diffcult to "eliminate" them... but as you do, I try to limit myself too

    Have a Marvelous Weekend, it was great to hear from you.

    You're definitely on the right track! Hang in there! I was a size 16/18 less than two years ago, so I can relate to your journey...I did the same exact thing when it came to my food log. I didn't use Sparkpeople again up until late June, when I simply couldn't afford the online fee for WW anymore. I have to say I am doing much better with Sparkpeople food tracking...seeing the actual calorie count of foods as opposed to the point system is a much better tool for me. It makes me sit up and take notice of what I've actually consumed for the day. I wasn't really diligent with exercise either up until I joined Golds Gym last November (my 50th birthday present to myself).Great that you have a trainer - half the battle is just getting yourself there so you are overcoming that obstacle! You can do it! emoticon
