Starting Over............Agai

Sunday, January 27, 2013

Hello everyone and greetings on a cold Ilinois night in January! So many things have occured to me over the past few years such as my son dying in 2010, job promotion and remarriage to the love of my life. I have not been on Sparkpeople for almost a year and it shows-with my 30 pound weight gain sooooooooo...I am starting over. The one thing that I have discovered about myself is that I have not held myself accountable for my actions eg. double and triple portions @ meals, lack of excercise though I have an arsenal of fitness dvd's and excercise equipment as well as a gym membership and so on and so on. Suffice it to say, I am very tired of my size ,the difficulties with finding clothing that fits me well, my large belly that throws my posture out of whack and at 39 years old.......I snore lol. I have alwys been a confident woman and would just roll with the punches. I convinced myself that I was a "big boned" girl and that was just how things were going to be. I will "tone up" the "troubled" areas and I would be fine. Well Spark family.......NO MORE EXCUSES!!!!!! We have heard it all from others as well as ourselves and it is a time for action. I was recently hospitalized due to gallbladder removal with 5-10 years worth of gallstones!!! I was so terrified by this and in the back of my mind I was wondering "what will be removed next". By the grace of God I have not had any "major issues" but I am determined to get and be better. All of your stories are so uplifting and you all inspire me. So I will be starting over and taking it one day at a time.....I will utilize the meal plans that are provided here on this site......I will increase my physical activity and will not whine while doing it.......I will {GULP} excercise portion control .......and will endure til the new beginning!!! Oh and forgot to mention........my hubby is a chef so Pray for me Spark family.
