So after going back and forth for almost 3 years now I decided to get back on track! I did not set any New Years resolutions since I always seem to set myself up for failures but i did set small goals to be reached throughout the next few years! No timeline just things i want to cross off my list!
I took this month to get back and to figure out what works for me and what does not! I learned that weekends are my weakest points! That is when my stress level is at its highest this kids and husband are home and Wanting food that isn't exactly healthy for them. they feel that they are not the ones that need to lose weight so they should be able to have some junk! I am hoping this changes as I incorporate healthier snacking for the children and healthier dinners for the family.
But my oldest daughter and I this week did get out and about taking the dogs for walks and spending some one on one time. I am concerned about her the Dr. says she is about 5 pounds over weight and is 11 years old she is a very curvy young lady already and i don't want to have her face the pressures and embarrassment of obesity like I have. But at the same time I do not want her to lose her self confidence and think she is fat so we are just increasing our activity, drinking water and cutting out the fatty snacks and she seems ok with all of it.
This week I have made sure to drink all 8ounces everyday even if it did not get tracked , eat breakfast every day no matter what and have tried to stay in my calorie range all week. there were days I did not get as much exercise as I wanted but i did get in some and it all paid off!
I LOST 5.5 POUNDS
I have to say this is a good start to getting back on track! And it is only the beginning! I know I have tons of hurdles to cross but it feels so good and I am halfway to my first goal of 10 lbs lost! I am so proud of me!!!!
