I have been logging my food and calories everyday for a week, I have been eating much better and working out. I am happy to say that I have lost 6lbs this week. I know that not every week I am going to have these kind of results but I will take what I can get knowing that I am doing everything that I can to succeed this time around. I know that I have started out strong numerous times and always quit, but this time is different. I have been working out with my daughter in law Jenna while my son (her husband) is over seas in Kuwait. We both have the goal to get healthy before he returns from his duty tour. He will be home in September. My goal is to reach 170lbs by August. Only 54lbs to go. I love being at the gym. I love waking up with a sore body knowing that its a result of a good workout the day before. This week I made it to the gym Monday thru Friday and took today off to let my body heal. I did not let myself off of logging my food or eating better though which is a good thing for me. I typically use my day off to eat whatever I want and then regret it. That isnt happening anymore. I will allow myself one day a week that I indulge in eating something that I truly want and that is on Thursday nights. I still log those calories though. I know that I have to make a lifestyle change in order for this to work and for me to continue going strong. I am finally ready to make the change and do this for me. I want to show my son that I am the strong and confident mother he has always thought I was. My ultimate goal is to be at around 150-155 but I will see how I feel at 170. If I feel the need to keep going I will and if not I will just work to maintain my 170 when I get there. I am so happy that I am finally dedicated to doing this.
