1-99 SparkPoints 60


Saturday, February 27, 2010

As some of you may know I've been on again off again here. I've had real trouble to committing to more than just a few days at a time. I can honestly say I'm here 100% fully into this now, no doubts in my mind this time, I can feel the difference. I'm ready to change my life and I'm finally doing it. I've had a lot of crazy moments in my life the last few years that made it so easy to find excuses not to do it. I know there's gonna be moments to still come up sometimes that will make me want to quit ,but I feel better prepared mentally to handle them and just keep going now. I'm better able to manage my time now, I'm finally getting the sleep I need to be able to have the energy to get up & workout and nothing is gonna stop me this time around. I started last Thursday 2-19 to get serious here. I started working out, I got a new Nintendo Wii, I love it, I'm also still using my treadmill & some exercise videos, like the WATP & Biggest Loser, but mainly my Wii. I used to never take the time to track my food I hated the time to do that. But it's really not that time consuming when you get used to it & know what you're doing. My purse looks a little funny sometimes with food wrappers in it, lol, I'm still scared I'll forget to track it if I don't save that wrapper. But I'm getting better at remembering. I've been able to consistently drink my water, track my food and exercise. I haven't had a DR.Pepper or Sweet Tea all week, and I thought I would, I DIDN'T!!!! It's amazing what you can do when you just say ENOUGH!! JUST DO IT!! NO EXCUSES!!! I'm happy I did. When I weighed Thursday 2-19, I weighed in at 223.8, today 2-27, I weighed in at 218.5. I thought I'd never get out of the 220's, at the beginning of this month I was as high as 228. So that's a total of 10 lbs. this month. Watch out Sparkpeople, there's no stopping me now!!!

    That's fantastic!! Your story is a perfect example of how it has to come from you. Just like smoking and drinking, weight loss is a personal thing, and it has to come from us. WE have to be at that point where we decide that enough is enough. I did that back in November, the week I turned 40. I decided to begin my change in life for me, not for my family, but because I wanted to be healthy and enjoy life. Losing any amount of weight is so motivating and encouraging. I'm happy for you!! emoticon Keep it up and don't be afraid to ask for that virtual kick in the pants. emoticon
