Starting Over, Just to start over.

Sunday, November 17, 2013

I hate the phrase "I am starting over and not quitting". I have said it, typed it and thought it way to often in my 29 years of life. I feel like my entire adult life I have been starting over with weight loss.
I lost my college/baby weight in 2007/2008 and I was confident and loved my life. I miss that feeling of living.
In 2010, my entire life changed. I met my future husband and his three beautiful daughters. My entire life flipped around. It was easy cooking for me and my son. It was easy taking him with me to work out. I learned fast that with a full-time family of 6 life got in the way of my "routine". At the beginning of 2011, I slowly found myself gaining weight. And of course I found myself becoming comfortable in all that weight too. Happy? NO. Just comfortable.
I changed my life around. I start working from home. I find myself putting my own needs off for my families.
So here we are almost to the end of 2013.
And I am "starting over" Except I am starting at 194.6 pounds. Somewhere I never wanted to be again. I still work from home and struggle every day with eating. I am going to make small changes and take this a one day at a time...starting today!!
Today, I am focusing on eating without my calories. I have made a supper plan for my family this week and already made some of the meals. There will be no eating out. Its a waste of money and calories. (I always over eat when I eat out).
There is a new gym in town that doesn't make you sign a 6 month contract. So I plan on getting a membership there. Our families life is hectic. We are always busy. But the gym is open 24 hours! Its fantastic!
So here is to starting over and NOT GIVING UP.
