A New Me

Thursday, April 25, 2013

Today I went to a weight management class with my husband. I heard a lot of things I've heard before, but some of it was new. The main thing I gained in that class was a determination to get my life in order and lose some weight!
I'm not counting today as day 1, because I ate a horrible breakfast in defiance of the upcoming class, and because I ate a horrible dinner as a last hurrah. I suck, but at least I'm ready to go!

Tomorrow is going to be Day 1, the day I start my new life, the day I care about my health.
I've been down this road before, but never with my husband as my partner in health.
My 11 month old daughter is already the healthiest person I know, but she's changing her diet too. Mainly because I caught her eating her own poop today. So really, the only thing we're changing in her diet is the poop. She can continue to eat all the awesome stuff she ate before the whole poop-thing.

Wish me luck, fellow sparkers! Better yet, wish me success! Luck won't help me, I need to help myself. Here's to the new me!

    You are in the right place. We've got the motivation and courage to jump right in and help in any way possible. (except for the poop part, you are on your own). Keep up with my blogs and you'll have a good time since I love to investigate and you never know what I'll tackle next. Be good to yourself and congrats on bringing your husband along.

    Welcome to Sparkpeople! One thing you'll learn - you never have to wait for a new day/week/month/year to be healthier. Every moment is a chance to be healthier. Why wait? There is no reason to strive for perfection - just do better. Even leaving a few bites left on your plate after a meal, walking a few extra steps, or being kinder to yourself is going to propel you forward on your journey to a healthier you.

    Best wishes on your journey!

    Yikes! You'll have to remind her of that when she gets older.

    That's awesome that you and your hubby are doing this together!

    Take it day by day! You'll get there!

    LOL That is too funny. I am glad you're changing her diet to exclude the poop.
    I wish you much success in your new life. You can do it. Start now, because all of the choices add up. You can do it. emoticon
