Restarting that weight loss thing....
I have been really bad. I haven't weighed in here since January 28!! I have been so bad! On January 28 I weighed in at 224.6lbs. I would like to say that I am still at the weight, but that is not the case. The previous 2.5 months have been bad with my eating and with Easter candy and stress eating, etc. I know that and it is really hard to have chocolate in the house and not eat it.
After not feeling well this past Sunday, I decided that something needed to change. I NEED to make a change, not only for me but also for my family. My mother is having heart issues again. I don't want that to be me and I don't want to put my husband and kids through what is going on with my mother. I NEED to make a change. My pants don't want to fit very well right now and it is coming up on capri and shorts weather and I want to be able to fit into some of my clothes.
So that things that I have decided to do are:
- I have decided to do a food diary. That way I will write down everything that I am eating and I will see calories and fat grams that I am consuming.
- I am also going to eat a lot more fruit and vegetables through the day. I will include at least 1 at breakfast and at least 2 at dinner. (Ideally I would also eat a side salad at least once a day with lunch or dinner)
- No snacking at the computer or after dinner. (the last couple of months I have found that I have been snacking on chocolate when I sit at the computer, or at night after the kids go to bed.)
I am doing this because as of this morning I weighed in at.....228.4lbs. That is unacceptable. Things need to change and that change starts NOW!
