of the 30 Day Shred!

Today's weight: 170 pounds.

This is sad to me. I've never been thin. I was 120 at my lowest weight, when I was 18 or 19. I've always been an overeater. I was comfortable with myself at 150. It wasn't that long ago...6 months or so. So...

Short term goal weight: 150 pounds.

Long term goal weight: 120 pounds (where I should be for my height, BMI-wise).

My workout plan:

20 minutes a day with Jillian Michaels.
Walk with the dogs an hour every morning (which I already do).
Play with my daughter every day.
Work in the garden, weather-permitting.

My eating plan:

Smaller portions.
Healthier choices (slices of fruit instead of Cheez-Its).
ONLY eat when I'm actually hungry, and not just because I'm bored or need a pick-me-up.

Food should never be my focus. It's nourishment for my body. Eating should not be so exciting for my taste buds that I want to keep going and going. It nourishes me, period. Overflow will only weigh me down and make me feel bad about myself.

A moment on the lips, forever on the hips ;)

(I think I can, I think I can, I think I can...)

good luck mama! i know how you feel.. i'm trying hard to lose weight to. I'm also a snacker, overeater, and generally addicted to food. I've been at it for one week and one day now and its so hard not to have some chips or a bowl of ice cream when everyone else is. hopefully i can stick with it though..

keep us updated. i can't wait to see how you do.. maybe you'll inspire me to keep it up.
