Today is a new day

I woke up at 5:30 and have stayed at the computer long enough.  Now is the time to make some efforts.  I want to see results.  That means I have to begin my active day–no time to think about food. 

I am writing to show the changes that will bring me to my goal of 125 pounds. 

First thing to eat today–a Snow Puff , a  100-calorie snack  with coffee.  It was very enjoyable.  Not too bad to begin the day with, if you don’t think about its nutritional value. 

OK!  What is wrong here?  Enough about food.  On the next blog, I intend to expound on all of my activity that is helping me lose 2 pounds this week.

Ready to move and lose 15 lbs!

Today is a great day.  A great day to begin a change in my life.  I want to be as fit as I was when I was just a kid.  When I was around 9 years old I stayed outside and was ALWAYS active.  I don’t remember making a big deal out of what to eat.  I ate what was on my plate and moved on with my busy day.  I would walk or ride my bike around the block.  I played ball much of the time.  I don’t remember sitting  until I had to come home.  I looked and felt so good then. 

I believe there is something about staying active.  It keeps you from overeating and depression and wasting time watching the rest of the world move. 

I am ready to move!

I am 140 pounds now.  I have tried to lose by exercising more and watching what I eat.  It has worked some:  I have lost 5 pounds over the last month.  I would like to lose 2 lbs. a week with no yo-yoing.  It should take me 7 and a half weeks to do this.  What an accomplishment this would be! 

If I do this, I know I will have to really try hard.  My weakness is homemade sweets and cookies.  My day starts out with me telling myself “Only one cookie or dessert”, but I give in too much. 

Yesterday I bought some 100-calorie Little Debbie’s cakes.  I also bought some Christmas sugar cookies.  Let’s see if I can focus on other things and keep the cravings at bay!
