I haven't been around much the past few months. It seems that once my daughter turned 3 she went into "overdrive!". I haven't had much time for myself or time to spend on the computer to visit SP.
I survived the holidays. I did not gain any weight and actually was proud of myself for not overstuffing my face! Calories were over my limit, but I was more cautious as to what went into my mouth.
I completed my 2nd Disney 5K with my mom, best friend and her mom. It wasn't at a time I wanted, but had fun and my daughter ran the last mile with me over the finish line.
I am still not happy with my progress or lack there of. I have not lost any weight and have just been hangin around the 220 mark. I still walk/jog 3-4 miles 2-3 times a week depending upon the weather.
I know I'm eating better, just still not in control of portions and sometimes have a "sweet binge" that I can't seem to control. I know what I need to do and I've mentioned this challenge before in my blogs. I just can't seem to find the fire or fight in me.
My divorce is final and I am 100x's stronger in dealing with "him". This year I've told myself it's about me and my daughter. I will lose weight, get out of debt and be on a happier trail than I was before. I know I have bit off more than I could chew so I've lowered my expectations and just focused on my walk/jogs and eating.
I just started last week to challenge myself to lose 1 lb per week. I lost one pound and then had a "sweet binge"... which included eating an entire pan of brownies in two days!!! Yuck!! I need to remember how I feel AFTER I eat something like that, not DURING or BEFORE I eat it.
I'm hoping to find the support again through this website.
