Wow, I finally got a blog spot! I’m so excited! This is a huge and SCARY step for me to start this weight loss journal, but I think it will help me to know that someone might read it, so I’ll make better decisions for my health and be somewhat more accountable.
I will not give my start weight at this point, but you all know what I look like, and that should be enough to be getting on with. I started a fast back in November (not a “no food” fast, but a “only healthy food - no sugar” fast), and I had lost a total of 20 pounds. However, over Christmas, I have put some of that back on. I have gone to the store and gotten the staple foods that I need in my house to help me to eat right, and am ready to get started. I am starting today (even though I have messed up by eating some M&Ms) to get back on my healthy eating regimen. Also, I use a lot of videos for exercise, and will be listing the different ones with each blog, so that you can see what I’m doing. I have tried going for walks with my kids, but they get really tired of it really fast - my daughter cried for an entire lap around the track! I can do outside stuff with them just here at home to stay active, but it is really hard to gauge just how much I have accomplished through that. Please feel free to give me tips and chide me when necessary!
