I'll think about food from now till when I go to sleep and have to fight the urge to go rummage in the fridge. Hope obsession stops...(1 comments)See this image larger#BeforeAndAfter Hoping that I will lose some weight and have an after picture to show...See this image largerfinally getting some much awaited spring weather here in Michigan. Have spent lots and lots of time outdoors biking and walking. Completed my first week on spark people and am down 2.5 pounds. I was skeptical this would keep me accountable, but I've really found it to be motivating! Am still struggling with what feels like starvation on a 2200 calorie diet but getting out and moving really helps keep my nose out of the fridge.....See this image largerMichigan hasn't seen a day this beautiful in about 8 months! Took the opportunity to get out and walk my mom (who has dementia) at the zoo. A fun way to sneak some exercise in! (And keep my mind off food. I'm on day 8 and still struggling to break years of unhealthy eating habits. I've found that food is literally an obsession with me since starting to monitor my food intake). Anyway, it helps to stay busy and away from the fridge! Am down to 191 from 196See this image largerSee this image largerAfter reading everyone's comments yesterday after I posted that I was very discouraged and didn't seem to have the willpower to change my eating habits, I picked up tons of tips, and even more than that, a reboot to my way of thinking and my motivation. Got up early for a walk, and felt it in my bones. Today is a new day...... Thanks so much for everyone's comments and support 💞See this image largerHad some bad news come my way today. Some potentially life altering news. So here I sit wanting to just stuff my face, but really it's my feelings. I'm really noticing the correlation between food and emotions for me. But I know that won't fix anything, except providing me with instant gratification, much like drugs or alcohol. So instead I grabbed a bottle of water and my lil walking partner/ daughter and as we walked just kind of silently prayed that I choose faith instead of fear....See this image largerFinally hit below 190, weighing in at 189.5 this morning. Helps provide extra motivation when you actually start seeing the numbers move down! Been out walking my mom a lot in this beautiful spring weatherSee this image largerFinally reached below 190, weighing in at 189.5 this morning which is a great motivation booster for me. Been out walking my mom a lot in this beautiful spring weather!See this image largerWalking with my daughter and her friend tonite. Took my mom to the zoo again today and walked, walked, walked. Still having trouble with my night eating. I do great all day and then usually blow it at nite. I am doing better than I was so I'm giving myself credit for that and continuing my journey forward. Hovering around 189.See this image largerlast day of school for my girl. We found ourselves at the Ford mansion in Grosse point where we toured the mansion (oh, the decadence), and then walked all around the beautiful property, sightseeing AND getting in some exercise! The property is huge so lots of walking. Happy for the start of summer vacation 2018!!!See this image largerSee this image largerWalked about five miles today at Cranbrook. Beautiful day, grateful. My exercise doesn't seem to be an issue. I seem to get quite a bit. However, my eating is still not right. I'll be 50 in 2 days and had hoped to have reached my first goal weight. I know it's all in my head. I KNOW what to do. It's just overcoming years of unhealthy eating practices. I'm not going down without a fight tho. one small step at a time eventually leads you to your destination....See this image largerWelp, here we are! My last day in my 40s! I can't say I'm sorry to see them go. It was the most difficult decade of my life by far. But I am looking ahead with great hope to the future. Excited to see what God has in store for me! I also want to meet new goals, and get as healthy as possible, so I can slide into old age, not limp...... So here's to my 50s... bring it on!!!!See this image largerSee this image largerSee this image largerSee this image largerEven on a little mini vacay, still gettin it in!!!See this image larger
