What did I do?

Monday, January 20, 2014

I have come back to SparkPeople because once again I gave up on myself. I gained almost all the weight back that I had lost. I can feel it this time is going to be different because I HAVE to do this for myself! I always say that I want to be healthy for my kids but I want to be healthy for myself. I want to be able to do things and feel great for ME. I have had so much stress in my life that I actually ended up in the hospital (thinking it was a heart attack) lucky for me this time but I am fine but I was told I need to get rid of as much stress as possible. I had 2 great people with me that night and day while I was there, they did not leave my side even for a minute, but when the doctor said how much I weighed I was horrified! I know these people are not my friends because of how much I weigh or don't weigh but it still was very embarrassing. I think this is the first time I have ever felt like that. I have been having many family issues that I want to be able to solve on my own but I feel that some of this does have to do with my weight. I just want to be ME.

My goals for 2014 are much of the same as before but they are doable:
1. Eat within my calorie range each day
2. Drink at least 64 ounces of water each day
3. Exercise at least 10 minutes everyday (plan to do more but at least 10)
4. I want to lose 80 pounds by the end of the year
5. Run a 5K
6. Love myself

I am also making small goals for myself with every 10 pounds that I lose so that I can stay on track. I hardly ever do anything for myself or buy anything for myself so that is all going to change!

2014 is my year!!! emoticon
