I can do hard things!

I'm 25 years old and weigh 230lbs, my ultimate goal is to lose 100lbs. In highschool I lost 50lbs by joining track and crosscountry and only eating sweets on holidays, getting down to 150, still a couple pounds over for a healthy BMI. No matter how much I did I could not get below that. In the end I was exercising a few hours a day with track and an intense conditioning class and not eating sweets, I didn't lose more though instead I got an injured hip. The doctor told me not to run anymore. ...

In the end I was exercising a few hours a day with track and an intense conditioning class and not eating sweets, I didn't lose more though instead I got an injured hip. The doctor told me not to run anymore. Now about 6 years (and two kids) later I have gained back everything and more. I gave in to the sweet addiction, so I need to learn how to moderate that and feel confident that tracking my calories will help.
Regular Chiropractor visits now have my hip to a usable state. A year ago I couldn't do many of the things I am doing now like ride a bike or walk for more than 10 minutes. It was pretty bad last year.
I want my kids to have a good role model in healthy living, and get back to being me again.

My Goals:
-To get down to 150lbs since that is the weight limit for the slide on our playground. Stop having to tell my kids I am too BIG to play with them.
-Be able to run and play soccer, frisbee, etc. with my kids for extended periods of time.
-Be able to go on an all day hike or even a backpacking over-night trip.
- Control my sweet tooth and eating habits and not let them control me.
- Eventually be in a healthy BMI range. I want to know what it feels like to have a healthy body!

My Program:
Step #1: Not eat while cooking
Step #2: Not finish my kids food for them
I am adding one step a week to my program. You can look at my blog to see what I have learned and why I picked those steps. I am trying to exercise as well, but I decided to focus more on changing eating habits first. Then get in to some exercise "steps."

"The one thing all famous authors, world-class athletes, business tycoons,
singers, actors, and celebrated achievers in any field have in common is that they all began their journeys when they were none of these things.
Yet still, they began their journeys.
You are so poised for greatness."

Thanks for the Spark goodie and comment on my blog! I know it isn't easy living with someone who eats goodies, my hubby does too so there is always something tempting in the house. The thing is I want to be thin, healthy and happy MORE than I want those goodies. I no longer wake up in the morning hating myself and think "darn, I blew it again yesterday". Now I wake up and feel proud of the new healthier me. The other morning I actually woke up and thought "I'm not fat any more!". emoticon

Focus on all the good stuff - more energy, how good you feel when you are in control, etc. you've done this before and you can do it again. The more you flex that "good choice muscle" the stronger it gets!

Keep up the good work! emoticon
