Hello 2014

Thursday, December 26, 2013

emoticon So another year, beginning with "this is going to be my year!"...
How many times has that been said? emoticon
emoticon I reached 200 in 1998. It feels like such a short time ago, but 15 years is a long time to be dieting on & off. It's exhausting. I can't believe its been so long.
And my weight has continued to climb. emoticon
emoticon I met my husband in 1997 @ 149 pounds, and we got married @200 in 1998. How does that happen?
emoticon I'm going to stick with the "Walk Away The Pounds" routines,
emoticonCut way back on my sugar intake,
emoticon eat more whole foods,
emoticon and also go to the Doctor to make sure there isn't a hormone reason why my body gained weight so fast in those 2 years above.

I'm going to cover it all, and boil down the reason why I haven't gotten this under control yet.
emoticon My husband & I have a 2 1/2yr old, (adopted now, but fostered from birth), and now it looks like we may be getting to foster-adopt her 1 month old brother, soon as well.
emoticon So I want to be a healthy fit Mom for them, but also for myself, because I know I will be able to enjoy motherhood more, if I was healthier. I want to fully enjoy this whole experience, and not let it slip by.

Which means, I really need to get on the stick, and stop messing around with this. My daughter is going to be almost 4 by the time I reach goal, and if we get her brother, he will be over a year old. I am in hardly any of my daughter's baby pictures, because I hate my weight so much that I dodge the camera.
emoticon Such a shame.
emoticon emoticon I welcome 2014. I feel stronger and feel like I have a better outlook. I can do this.

Happy New Year everyone. emoticon

    June, that is so exciting that you will be adding to your family! All the more reason to treat YOURSELF with love and care. When making food or activity choices, imagine what you would want for your daughter as an adult. You would do anything to help her if she she were overweight and wanted to become healthier. This thought process helps ME. If my son or daughter were here I would take the trouble to make something delicious and healthy for them. I would take the time to walk with them. Just an idea. emoticon

    It's so much easier when you don't try to do it alone! We can do this. I have lost 25 pounds since Sept 4th 2013. Maybe more because it's almost time to weigh in again! I have a Spark group that is loving caring and supportive. It has made a tremendous difference in my program! This is my 3rd try with spark, 1st 2 times I tried to do it alone. It works for me when I don't try to do it alone!

    Sometimes it takes a village emoticon

    I know exactly what you mean I wanted to remind you that we can do this. I know I have been really discouraged with how much weight I need to lose and then I decided to think about it logically. If I lose even two pounds a week, by this time next year I will be 104lbs lighter. Small and steady. We can do it!

    You have some excellent motivation! I'm cheering for you! Keep me in mind if you ever want to walk :)
