So, it's 1:40 in the morning, I'm laying in bed and having a lot of issues falling asleep. About a minute ago I had one of those aha! moments when I suddenly thought, I can't fall asleep and I'm drinking a soda. It's almost two in the freaking morning, why the heck am I drinking a soda?!?!? It sounded pretty mouth watering when I was looking in my refrigerator, so I grabbed it, got into bed and turned the television on.
Normally I wouldn't post this type of thing, because it's insanely embarrassing, but I need to post this, hoping it will push me to make a change.
I can't tell you how many years I have been saying that I need to drop a few dozen pounds, especially after I had my second child. I also can't tell you how many times I have tried to diet, sometimes successfully, most ended in a total bomb. By bomb, I mean a large cheese pizza, which then followed with me feeling so guilty that I eat up a few bowls of ice cream.
Well, I need to spare my husband from endless complaining and make it happen. I wasn't planning on my blog being a weight loss blog, and it won't be completely, I mean, I am a total craft addict and need to share the amazing ideas I come upon, but I will be posting my journey.
I am done with feeling envious of my thin co-workers, friends and, let's be honest, every single skinny girl I see! I want to be one of those people! I am done feeling sluggish after playing with my children after only 10 minutes.
I am thinking that if I post about my weight loss goals it will make it more likely I will actually do it!
So, here are the stats.... I am 5'5" and I weigh 155 pounds. It may not seem too bad, but I feel like most of my weight sits in the same few places, my love handles and my belly.
I plan on making myself participate in a more active lifestyle and, since I have been told by past trainers that diet is 80% of weight loss, I will be switching up my diet. This means NO MORE SODA! I know I can do it, I gave soda up for Lent this past year. In the past I have had VERY little self control, it's something I have been working on and been getting better, but it's not where I want to be with it.
I am looking to get rid of at least 20 pounds, that would make me 135, and this is still a healthy weight for my height.
