After the frightening experience I had Sunday I decided it was high time I made some changes. I've used my back as an excuse for way too long. I am much better now, with the exception of my "episode" on Sunday. We have almost an acre of land here. I can get out and walk frequently.
Every Wednesday I'll post my journey of weight loss. I'm not as concerned about the numbers as I am about how I feel. But today was the first time I've been on a scale since December and shockingly I'm down 20 pounds. I know that after surgery I was thinking more about what I ate because I wasn't able to be out of bed for a while.
Lately, the biggest challenge for me with food is at night after the kids go to bed. I find myself eating just to eat. I laugh because I really enjoy watching the Biggest Loser, but what am I doing??? EATING!! We need to start keeping healthy choices in the house. No wonder I have health issues. But I'm praying that this will be the beginning for me.
So check back here every week for an update on my journey. I will talk about how my week went with: food, water (a big one for me), exercise, challenges, successes, plans for the next week, and weigh in.
So see other people working toward a healthier life visit Happy to be at Home.
