Weighed myself holding my breath this morning. Afraid of the
haha. But it showed that I've lost another pound.
I'm at a TEN pound weight loss in a month and a half JUST by eating right, counting those calories, and... walking every day, sometimes more than once, and with a little strength training.
Today is a blustery and snowy day.
Ugh! Where did spring go?!?! Someone chased it away, and replaced it with cold temps and snow. It's only 36 degrees out with a wind chill of 27.
I think that from now on, I'm only going to weigh myself once every 2 weeks. That'll seem more like an accomplishment. Not that losing ONE lb isn't.
I reached ONE goal of 10 lbs so I get my reward of coloring my hair. Any suggestions?
So what made you finally decide that you'd had enough of the way that your body felt or looked?
For me... Depression was the MAJOR influence on gaining so much weight since my youngest was born.
I felt isolated and alone with only my children as my friends. One of my "friends" that I thought that I had, betrayed me, and I could never trust her again.
food was my friend. Pepsi, Mountain Dew, chocolate, cake, ice cream, anything that was loaded with sugar is what really made me feel good. It was a sugar high. For over 9 years I was a sugar "junkie".
On April 27th, it'll be TWO months since I've touched a soda!! To me, this is a great accomplishment and I'm super proud of myself.
I finally reached the bottom of my self esteem and not wanting to die early leaving my children and grandson behind. That's what really woke me up. I don't want to look at myself in the mirror and feel sad that I did this to my body again. I want to look at myself and feel GOOD that I'm fixing it.
And that's what I do now. Though I have 73 pounds to go, I know that I'll do it. I'm giving myself a deadline of Feb. 27th, which will be the one year anniversary of starting this new lifestyle.
Enjoy your weekend. More
Spring will get here sooner or later..
