Celebrating Today's Successes

Thursday, August 28, 2014

Today's successes include:
Walking for 15 minutes on my day off from exercising
Spending time at the park with my twins and dog
Drinking 9 cups of water
I went over my calorie range BUT only by 12 calories and I ate nothing that was "bad"
I really wanted ice cream, cookies, brownies, or something else sweet but I didn't give in
While in town I wanted to go to Kwik Trip as it just opened but I knew I would make a poor choice so I resisted
Spending quality time with my DH
I found and decided on the twin's first birthday outfits and DH agreed!

Getting Serious & Staying Serious

Monday, August 25, 2014

I know...I posted a blog like this under 2 months ago but here I am again!

I started out decently but then in about a month I have dealt with 3 family deaths. (one was a suicide) And I of course ate my emotions and I ate a lot!

I went to a wedding this past weekend and a picture of me and my husband was posted on Facebook and holy sh*t...I am BIG! It was a wakeup call and motivation.

I NEED to do something and I need to do something NOW. Then I need to continue that!

I have never posted my statistics but I think that will also help me:
Current weight: 263 lbs
Current size: 16/18 or 18/20 and XL or XXL

I also took before pictures today:





I never want to see myself this big ever again!

    Aw, emoticon to you spark friend! That is tough to have one loss/death...but 3! I'm so sorry for all this heart ache and breaking. emoticon May your heart find its way to sing again in the days/months to come. And wow, it is amazing how you chose now to be serious. Those before pictures are a real big step, as they are such a reality check! Go girl for you, for doing this! emoticon You realize that your body, your health, your family, and precious you all need the healthiest you possible. Don't lose hope. You are loved. You are cared about...more than you can imagine. Sending warm hugs to you dear girl, emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Behind you all the way! I'm sure it's tough getting back into the routine when you have precious twins to take care of. But you have the support of Sparkpeople to get back on track. Good luck!
