So, I'm back.
I maintained my weight in my absence (good!) I am actively involved in a FB group with the focus of working out, eating right and drinking water to lose weight (sooo many people out here are into the fad diets and "quick fixes" like wraps to lose weight).
My husband has been taking some kind of what I will call a "diet pill" which is working for him. He eats whatever he wants, downs two energy drinks a day, and is losing weight. I will be honest, I am very very jealous. But at the same time, I do not want to be jittery, on edge and heated internally all day long.
I am still cleaning houses, so every day I am very very active. I am, by no means, sedentary. But, I have not been making time for working out at the gym, house, or otherwise. I have found a bunch of great basic exercise routines, and I have the "Biggest Loser Workout" DVD, and a bunch of Zumba, and other workout programs on my computer. I have all the tools to keep losing weight and reach amazing goals. Now it is just up to me to do it.
I have been on here and researching ways to lose weight through portion control, eating healthy, working out, etc. I KNOW what I need to be doing. I just need to do it. NOW.
Not tomorrow, not next week. NOW.
I had two jobs today, and I have two tomorrow and Wednesday. That has me working from 8-5. I have the mornings before 8 and the evenings after 5pm. I need to do this. I want to do this. I can do this.
I have at least 20lbs left to lose. I am almost at my healthy BMI. I am happy with the way my body looks, but I know it can look even better. I want to be able to run for more than 2 minutes without getting winded. I want to look forward to doing a straight hour's worth of cardio. I used to be like that. I can be there again.
GREAT JOB to all my spark friends who have been busting their humps and losing weight. After not seeing you all for almost a year, it is GREAT to look at your profiles and see the changes.
