Today September 10 2009
This Summer I went home to Idaho to visit family and friends and when I saw the picture of me hugging my Son Skyler I was shocked that couldn't be me!!!
I was depressed and told my hubby I wanted to start eating healthier and lose weight he also needed to lose 40 pounds so we decided to do it together.
Tom has lost 16 pounds I think I have lost between 7 and 10 pounds.
I know as women we tend to be critical of ourselves which leads to more comfort eating instead of changing our diets I'm guilty of this and the weight doesn't just drop off.
Since we started eating healthier my husband has at times thought that I'm mad at him or in a bad mood but I'm just hungry and tired and I want fries and a burger.lol
I have stocked the house with healthy foods since July 28th and I'm noticing a gradual change in my appearance.
Two years ago I had lost alot of weight and loved how I looked and it showed in photos the big smile the look of confidence.
I want to blame it on menopause I want to blame it on hormone replacement but the truth is I got lazy I went for the quick fix meals and fillers.
I didn't want anyone to see me like this as you can see from the picture taken today second photo down from the top I still feel uncomfortable in my own body.
I know it takes time but dont we all want faster results.
I'm going to take you all my blogging friends with me on this journey so grab a carrot stick and lets do this thing.
I have goals here they are:
1.Lower my cholesterol
2. Lose 20 pounds
3.Like having my picture taken
4.To be able to wear jeans again without the elastic waist band
5.Like who I see in the mirror
6.Gain my confidence back
7.Keep the weight off!!!
