I decided in January that this must be the year. That '08 would be the year to lose the baby weight. I've gained 100 lbs. in the past 5 years (not collectively, but with the 2 pregnancies) and have lost roughly 70 of it.
I've lost 10 lbs this year so far.
I've got 33 lbs to lose. Give or take 5.
I feel better than I have in a long time. I don't feel panicked. I don't feel like I'm really dieting. I'm taking it slow and making permanent (I hope) changes.
I've fallen in love with the blog of a fellow WW points counter. A nice girl who counts her points and eats them too. Who takes gorgeous pictures of the delicious foods she makes and shares them with us. I live vicariously and dream of cooking such things, while I eat my turkey sandwiches and low fat pringles. Even if you are just looking for a healthy recipe, or a great food site, you should take a look.
I've started and deleted a personal health blog twice. I just felt like I was only whining, more than anything, so have decided to share those thoughts only in my personal journal. Only I know the internal joy that is always there. Only I know that a bad day is just that. So I journal the old-fashioned way. It's helping me learn about myself, and I find it's better that way.
It's all better.
