Weight Loss Journey
MY WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY....
As many of you know I have been on a weight loss journey for over a year now. I joined Weight Watchers in September 2010. Now over a year later I feel like I'm at a stand still. I thought I would do a post about it to try and give myself some motivation. My family is sick of hearing about it, so I will leave it in the hands of my readers.
I know why I'm at a stand still....laziness! I'm horrible at working out, I have to force myself to chart my food, it's just not as fun as it used to be. I need to come up with a way to get myself back into the game. I still have 30lbs to loose and it's not going to just fall off, I know I will have to work at it. I just have to do it! AHHH I am such a food addict. I need a 12 step program based on food. It seems like everywhere I turn some one is eating something, cooking, or offering me some delicious goodie. It's simple just say no. Yeah right. I think it's simple for those who aren't food addicts. It is not simple for me! Free samples at stores, candy on counters, left overs in the fridge it is everywhere all the time. I guess for me it's a one minute at a time program. As long as I can keep saying no thank you to hand outs, close the fridge or fill it up with the good for me stuff I will be ok.
I am Thankful that God has given me the strength to come this far in my weight loss journey. I know that he will be there with me as I make the right choices for myself in order to keep on the track that I need to be on.
With Thanksgiving less than 24hrs away I am trying to prepare myself for the overwhelming amount of food that will be present. My goal is to try to focus on everything else. Gathering with family and spending good quality time together is what really matters, the food is just a bonus. I will stuff my self full of good conversations, love, support, and amazing people. With all of that on my plate there is no way that I will let food take over. One day at a time!
