At the beginning of December as I was filling out our Christmas cards I was utterly disgusted and far beyond embarrassed to be sending out this pic to friends and family! Each envelope I stuffed I looked at the picture and my eyes were drawn to how fat my legs were and the anger grew! Yea I just had 3 back to back pregnancies but even before that I was still about 40 lbs overweight! In our family pic session the hubs and I had pics made together and I cant even stand to look at them bc I look so fat! Don’t say oh your not fat etc.. but the plain truth of it is I am! Like I said in a previous post no need to candy coat it any more.
There comes a point, like I've said before, where you actually say it's time to change and you actually do it. Through out December I watched my calories and lost 16 lbs of course Christmas and the loading phase of my diet caused its usual weight gain and I gained 7 or 8 back... But those few pounds came with a heavy price and they taught me a very valuable lesson!
This past week I have strictly followed my diet and now 21.8 lbs down from where I was at the beginning of December!
Point being, this quest for health and weight loss is not a new years resolution nor a goal that I take lightly it's a serious life change... No going back!
Tonight for dinner I had a fried egg wrapped in lettuce and some strawberries!
Was it good? Eh it was ok. But it was worth it and when I wake up and step on the scale and even see just a fraction of a pound gone its beyond well worth it! Every morning I am taking joy in seeing a number that I will happily never see again!
No it's not easy but it is doable and if you really want it bad enough to do something about it its completely possible!
I AM changing my life one decision a time!
