Ive been reading a bunch of weight loss blogs to keep myself motivated. It's helped to motivate me but more than that it has sobered me up. To lose 100 pounds like I set out to do is going to take lots of effort and lots of determination! I have to firm up my goals and get a real plan in action here.
I think the biggest place for me to start is to begin to plan out my days eating in advance. I need to have that plan in mind so when I get rushed I don't eat any old thing. If I have every calorie counted and the food prep done ahead of time I can just eat from the plan.
This morning I weighed the lowest I've weighed in years. I saw a weight 8 pounds lower then this exactly 7 years ago when I was nursing my son. My son weighed 11 lbs 4 oz. at birth and was 2 ft long. He nursed everything right out of me and I ended up at the lowest weight I had been in a long while. That little boy turned 7 in February. This morning, 7 years and 3 months later, I'm finally seeing weights that I haven't seen since those marathon nursing months.
So now I've lost over 30 pounds and its time to get a real plan in place. I will share that plan with you in the next day or so. In the meantime remember we all are here for you.
Reach out and give Southerner a hand. She went off Dexatrim and is now struggling. It's a big thing to give up the pills and do it solo. Way to go Southerner! You can do this!!
