I have decided to take this place to share way more along my journey than just the weight after all our lives, our freinds, our families all help make us what we are. I have some very great freinds in life who keep me sane, I have made good choices in life like having kids, to bad choices like the ex so I beleive to make progress we need to share our whole lives and along the way I beleive we should try to inspire others to accomplish their goals also no matter what our goals are life just gets in the way sometimes so this will be very personal at times so feel free to ignore my blogs if your only interested in diet tips cause to be honest Im not really great at the diet thing yet so I have not useful tips.
Life has a way of becoming habits more than anything or this is the way it is in my life like I have the habit of eating way to much everything I do is surrounded by food. My good times my bad times my sad time we even eat at funerals. So eating is a way of life so to make this a new way of life is my goal yes I will continue to eat at weddings, funerals, birthdays, bbqs but the difference will be the way I eat who says I cant brind a fruit tray instead of potato salad or both and who knows a new low fat recipe may become a staple at the family bbqs so you see whatever we do in life can make our lives better or make things worse I can continue to eat the way I have for years and only have diabetes, high blood pressure and more health problems or I can change my life and make new choices and look forward to more time to enjoy my freinds and family and you know what the choice is all up to me. This freaks me out somewhat Im not sure I ever spend a day that is just my choice you see I get up everyday and see what mom needs first, then see what the kids need then the hubby and on and on until I have very little say over my own life but the diet is all me If I succeed or if I fail no one is to blame no one can take the credit no one can complain but me this is the one thing I have all total and complete control over and Im kinda scared. I have a lot to learn and a long way to go but even this revelation that Im the one in control is progress for me Im just waiting until all the small changes show in bigger things its not easy and its slowwwwwwwww but its coming and Im happy just doing what im doing for now each day seems brand new and im learning everything I can about nutrition and exercise some things I love some not so much but each new thing is a step in the right direction as long as Im moving forward that to is success.
So for now I have small successes like eating at least two great meals daily with fruit or veggies.
Getting all my water
Exercising ten minutes daily
Learning a new recipe once a month ( gonna be doing on a week next week)
Trying new things ( this is the hardest thing for me)
Not Giving up
Very small successes but Im moving forward not backward
