I have not written a blog in two years, so in my book that counts as a first blog. Reading other blogs frequently helps me. Some blogs inspire, some make me laugh, some give me good tips, and others give me the opportunity to give. I am always so satisfied when I encourage other people in their goals. I hope that through my blog I can help others as well.
Now to the confession... right now, anyway, what I am going to confess is my fears. I have lost 20 pounds in 10 years. I am proud of that accomplishment. I am happy with my healthy lifestyle, and I am happy that I am happy with my healthy lifestyle, if that makes sense. Fears? I'm afraid I'll lose it all. That I'll gain it all back. I see so many overweight women in their 30s and 40s, and I think, "What's to keep me from being like them in a few years?They were probably thinner when they were younger, too." I'm already so busy, with good things mind you, that I find it nearly impossible to exercise. So maybe I'll get too busy to eat well? To even care? To just say, "What the heck, I can eat doughnuts for breakfast." I really, really don't want that to happen. I don't want to gain weight back. Now or ever.
Now that I got that off my chest, I want to point out one thing that works for me. I absolutely love how I can view my food diaries from past weeks easily. I see that my best eating days include a healthy breakfast. If I don't have breakfast in the morning, my eating for the day inevitably stinks. I need to keep that in mind.
Well, even though I had a bad veg-out last night (I logged my weight anyway, even though I know I didn't gain 2 pounds) I am feeling better now. I want to be healthy within my body, and a healthy relationship with the food I eat.
Have a good weekend!
