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!
