Back In The Saddle
Monday, January 14, 2013
So here I am almost 23 years old and 100 pounds overweight with a one and a half year old son. I feel like I have wasted so much time being fat when I could of lost the weight and be in great shape, like I should be. There are people who are much older than me who are in way better shape, which is kind of sad for me to think about. I know this happens to a lot of people but I still feel like I shouldn't be like this. It's kind of pathetic to think about myself being like this. I want to make a change. I have been saying for a while that I want to lose weight but I am more determined than ever to do it. Today I wanted to start doing so and bought a double quarter pounder with cheese meal without even thinking about it. I saw how many calories I would be wasting with this one meal and felt bad about it for about two seconds, ate it, came home and worked out, and regret eating that meal. As I think back to when I was eating it I had my son and my husband with me and I don't want my son to get older and not be healthy because of me. He cannot choose what he eats, that is what I am doing, and I am making the wrong decisions. He does get to run around all the time and gets into everything, climbs, and is constantly moving when he is not asleep, but I still don't want him to be eating like this, exercise or not. He does like vegetables and fruits over fries and junk so I don't see why I can't go the extra mile and give him these things instead of choosing the easier option of heating a small frozen dinner up for him. Now I do let him eat steamed vegetables when we eat them, but its not an everyday thing. I should say this; I want to lose the weight and be healthy and in doing so, make my family, especially my son, live a healthier life. Wish me luck!!!
