I am the little engine!

Sunday, April 28, 2013

In my last blog I mentioned I was starting to feel like the little engine that could. It really got me to thinking that I do truly feel like that in terms of getting healthy. My weight and bad habits are the hill i'm slowly going up with my constant chugging along slowly inching my way up the hill. It's really helping with my positive thinking. I have been telling myself I think I can all week. I got on the scale for the first time since my surgery and i've lost 6.2 pounds since then which means I'm almost down 15 pounds since I've gotten back on track. I still am pretty close to the bottom of that climb, but I am super proud of my results and they're giving me the motivation to keep on chugging. I think I may pick up a copy of that book to reconnect with the story. One thing I'm super proud of is my boyfriend is starting to pay more attention to food labels and he's starting to get into healthier eating. I'm helping him understand food labels and it's super exciting to get on the same page. This week I am going to start working out a bit. I have to be careful cause I am still getting tired easily from the surgery, but I want to start at least some strength training and walking without being too intensive. I'm looking forward to continuing to focus and keep shrinking.
