32 Down 1 More To Go!
WooHoo! I just got on the scale yesterday and I'm 32 pounds down...only 1 more to go to get to my original weight goal of 149! I am so excited!
Who knew that 6 months ago when I had that middle of the night trip to the ER, that I would be sitting here now this much healthier? I am thankful that the insurance company said those words to me in January...that I was obese! It surely was a real wake up call! Both things were really!
I exercise everyday. I now eat healthier. I make better food choices. I am eating more of a variety of foods, including fruits and veggies. I am in love with roasted on the grill sweet potatoes and red peppers. Yummo! I've stayed away from cake, cookies, icecream, chips and all those things that taste so good but are bad for you foods. I've changed, and for the better! I've made myself a priority!
Now that I am this close, I am resetting my weight goal for another 10 pounds. I want to be back in the 130's. I haven't been there since Joshua was 6 months old and that was over 20 years ago!
And the best part is that I am buying myself a new wardrobe! I'm a size 10! I now love shopping and trying on clothes now! The 3 way mirror in the dressing room has become my friend. It shows me how nice I look in my new clothes but also shows me areas I need to work on.
I still have a few things to figure out before the craft show season starts...like what food I will eat. How and when I will eat. No more grabbing a hot dog at the show or skipping breakfast....can't do it anymore. But all will be worked out.
I want to thank everyone the past 6 months that have encouraged, supported and been there for me. Especially my husband. He has been my constant cheerleader. He has walked with me many, many miles. He has helped figure out things I could eat. He has gone shopping late at night when we had no eggs left and that would mean no breakfast for me. He's researched and figured out what vitamins, minerals and supplements that I need to be healthier. Oh and the best thing, he's losing some weight too...26#'s! WooHoo! He still has more to go, and hopefully I will be able to keep him on track and down the right path too!
Until next time....
