I don't post a lot, but I lurk. I love knowing that I am not alone in this journey! I am stuck at a 10 lb loss. I am having trouble sticking to the plan and exercising as much as I should. I am about to exercise now. I had an epiphany while reading tips from past Biggest Loser contestants. One of them said "The first step is to commit". Well, there's my problem, I do commit, and then I fall off the wagon and get down on myself and let myself wallow in the fatiness of it all. So, I will try to change my thinking. The first step is to commit, but not just once. You have to recommit every minute of every day (especially for a chronic snacker like me). My DH bought all my favorite treats for v-day. Well, I don't have to freaking eat it all in a couple days! Every time I reach for one, I will try to be more aware and decide if I want it because I am bored and if it is worth it. If I know I can't walk away after one, then I won't have any until I feel more in control. I also downloaded 30 day shred! eeekkk lol I watched it last night and I am scared! It will be hard, but I want to do it. However, Aunt Flo showed her ugly face early, so I'll wait. I'm hoping it gives me a little push in the right direction. My ultimate goal is to be healthy and strong and at least 100 lbs lighter by this time next year. I am 10 lbs and a few inches down. I will not quit. I may lose a couple of battles along the way, but I will get back on that proverbial horse and finish this time! It's not just about me, but about teaching my sweet boy good habits and never hesitating to do anything with him because I'm too fat. I will not short change myself or him!
