I haven't been doing much of anything special. I've been doing good with just eating when hungry. There have been times, I"m not hungry for a long time, sometimes I feel like i"m hungry 2 hours later. I've been paying more attention to those times. It is usually becuase I have eaten some form of white carbs. So, I've cut back on those. I am still exercising, but my back is hurting this week so I'm taking it easy. Probably start walking again since it isn't so hot anymore.
My middle child is getting ready to start preschool. Her teacher is coming to the house today during lunch to meet us and Alex. She starts next Wednesday and she is so excited. My oldest started 5th grade. I just can't believe how fast time is going. Did a lot of cleaning in the last two days and I have a feeling that is why my back is knotted up on one side. I did get rid of two big garbage bags full of junk toys and broken toys and just junk. My kids refused to clean it. Found so much junk under my oldest daughter's bed, I was pretty mad. I cleaned it all out, and threw it away. They were all upset with me at first, but I explained to them that I'm tired of them not cleaning. toys were everywhere, in all the bedrooms, in the hallway, on the porch, in the living room, kitchen. It was terrible. Did biggest loser for 35 minutes. at the beginning I told them that if they don't get what is on the floor off the floor in all areas, it would be thrown away.
they made the choice not to clean. testing me. They soon found out I was dead serious. Now, last night when they had made another mess, I asked them one time to clean and they went right there and did it. I had my daughter do some dishes. I had the little ones cleaning the table off after eating. I'm going to start making them more responsible about chores in stead of putting it all off on me.
Other than that, haven't lost any weight, but haven't gained any either. I'm doing okay mentally and physically. I feel more self confident and more beautiful even though I'm not at the size I would like to be.
