So another year, beginning with "this is going to be my year!"...
How many times has that been said?
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.
I met my husband in 1997 @ 149 pounds, and we got married @200 in 1998. How does that happen?
I'm going to stick with the "Walk Away The Pounds" routines,
Cut way back on my sugar intake,
eat more whole foods,
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.
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.
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.
Such a shame.
I welcome 2014. I feel stronger and feel like I have a better outlook. I can do this.
Happy New Year everyone.
