Day 1 of my helping me and helping others blog...

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

Today I started my getting healthy life style (I'm going to come with a name for it cause I don't really don't want to say diet cause diets never really work.) and y'all are the only one who knows, because right now that's all I'm telling. I don't want to hear or see the looks I would get about saying I'm starting another diet. To hear them say oh know not again or sure you are. Until I see that I'm sticking with it and exercising regular and when they see the weigh coming off.

Today I haven't walked on my treadmill, But I have been busy cleaning and organizing my house and getting ready for a yard sale this weekend I just now slowed down and it still looks a tornado came through my house. I'm hoping what all I did today can count as some sort of exercise. I did pretty good on eating too.

My starting weight is 227 lbs. on Sunday. I'm taking this one day at a time. Baby steps. I'm not going to say how I'm going to lose it but It will be healthy with no fad, diet pills or any other crazy diet out there. A little hard work and eating healthy. I want to work hard at this, to say I did this!!
Through this journal I want to inspire others to do the same, get healthy and fit. To be a role model to my daughter and others. Maybe if I can to this then I can help others. Then maybe they can then pay it forward.

I'm starting this out with getting my house clean and organize to reduce the stress, and then I feel like I can work on everything else in my life that needs work on. My house, finances, being a better mom, being a better person to everyone around me, and my relationship with God. I feel that if I don't work on these areas as well, then I can accomplish what I want to do.

I can do this! Not going to take everything for granted.. Going to stop sweating the small stuff.. Going to stop and laugh more and love more.. Be more positive..

Enclosing tonight I wish for everyone dreams to be full filled. Never take things for granted and love life..

    You can do this. NOW is the time.
    I had my colon exam and doctor said my "innards" look really nice, so I was happy, since I'm 63. Said to see him in 10 years unless I had problems.

    Love this blog! I cannot use that 'D' word any longer either. D is for deprivation and when I start that it's a clear setup for failure in my world.

    I am very much where you are now too. Baby steps to get started. Maybe plan on one change per day or week until you're into the swing. I started with the exercise 1X, then 2X, now I'm up to 4X (times) weekly and feel very good about it! I'm actually starting to enjoy how I feel after I finish up.

    Stay connected - helps me and with Sparks it's easy to find people out there who understand what you're going through. CARRY ON! You're doing GREAT! emoticon

    You are right, you can do this. I've done diets all my life, gone up and down and yo-yo'd my life to my highest weight ever. In March I was diagnosed with pre-diabetes and took myself in hand. I eat really clean, mostly protein and veggies, fruits and I use a meal replacement twice a day. I also included exercise. I do boot camp 3 x per week and I have lost 16.2kgs (35pounds) since March. You can do this too.
