I'm FINALLY making it happen!

I am 32 years old, am married, have a 2 year old daughter and a 1 year old son. I have struggled with my weight since I was about 12.

Now that I am a mom, I really want to get my eating under control, and exercise regularly. I want to feel good about myself, teach my children healthy habits, and I want to have the energy to keep up with them. I don't want to be a lazy mom.

Here are my goals:

[X] reach weight of 210 lbs (July 2, 2013)

I've been worried about you, but I see that you tracked your food today. I hope that means that you are doing well (overall...not just whether you are eating right and tracking).

I haven't made your checklist sheets up for myself yet, but I really need to do that. I had a couple of bad weekends in a row, but I think I'm back on track again now.

Let me know how you are doing.

Thanks for you comments on my "Who's going to win" blog. I do need to be less hard on myself and stop trying to find perfection. That is only going to frustrate me. I would never say that losing large amounts of weight is easy, but I do realize now that it's also very difficult to lose close to goal and then maintain.

I found the Color Run to be much better than I was expecting it to be. The people in the "color stations" along the way had the powder in squirt type bottles and aimed low, so nothing really got into your face. Sometimes you could kind of feel a little powder in your mouth but nothing that was annoying. Then at the end, you can decided whether to stand in the group that is throwing color up in the air. That definitely covers you more, but again, I didn't feel like it bothered me. I wore sunglasses to protect my eyes, but they didn't get that covered. I also made a face mask that I could have pulled up over my nose and mouth, but I never needed it. I would highly recommend doing it with at least one other person, though. You don't really challenge yourself with pace because of the number of people running, so it's much more fun to share it with someone. I think that a whole team of people would be even more fun.
