Hi everybody!

I weighed in this morning and was excited to see that I've lost 3lbs!! I know it's nothing dramatic, but that's fine with me. I want to see this weight gradually come off, so I can keep it off! So, I was very happy with this morning's results. I'm most excited because not every single meal I ate was the healthiest, but I can say around 80% were. I'm working on doing better!

This past Tuesday was my mom's birthday and that's not your typical day. So, I had some ice cream cake. I didn't let it get me down, though, because it's not something I'm going to do every day. And I think it's great that I can know that. There's no need to beat myself up. Again, I'm working on being a more positive thinker! I have always been my own worst critic.

I've been doing some Zumba, too!! Let me just say, it's fun, but whew, it's hard on a big girl's knees! It's rough, but at the end of it, I feel so much better. I've found a Christian-based group that posts Zumba videos on YouTube and I've been doing them in the privacy of my room. Hopefully some day I'll be to the point that I will go to an actual class. One of my good friends from school teaches Zumba as well as one of my co-workers (whom I've also known since grade school). So, there are lots of options!

I really need to incorporate some walking. I put on my goals that I'd like to run a 5K and I'm serious. I just need to get up and go! I'm hoping I can talk my sister into going walking with me or finding someone that would like to.

I put as my status today that I fixed myself lunch (not just a microwave Smart Ones!) and I was proud of myself because it was good for me and it was good! I had chicken tacos with refried beans. It was pretty great. Haha. And it really filled me up! I'm doing better with "being full" than I thought I would be. I really am excited about all this!

Please keep the prayers and encouragement coming! I need all of it I can get. I really want this and I want to stay on track. I want to do good and get healthy! I'm sick of the lifestyle I had been leading (for many reasons). Every night I pray to God that I'll continue to work on being healthy. I truly want to and I figure it never hurts to ask my Father for some help. =)

Thanks for reading!

I forgot to add it, so I had to come back and edit this -- I've been without Pepsi for 2 weeks also! I'm super proud of myself on that. Pepsi was like crack to me. I was talking to a PA at the hospital yesterday who has quit pop, too, and I told her now we know how drug addicts feel! Haha. I've done surprisingly well. There's only been a couple of times that I REALLY wanted an ice cold Pepsi, but I've not caved. I'm pretty happy with how well I've done with it. =)

    CONGRATULATIONS!!!! You have done a fantastic job! 3 pounds IS a big deal and the breaking the Pepsi addiction is even bigger! I am proud of you! Anytime I start losing motivation, I read a success story and find it again. :) You can do this! Congrats again! emoticon emoticon
