Last fall and through the winter I made a decision. I was overweight, and needed to drop at least 20 pounds. Three months and all my willpower later, I achieved that goal. But somehow 5 of those pounds seemed to have found their way back over the summer.
I could blaime it on a lot of things, but I know what the problem really is. I eat too much. I snack too much and eat too much junk. I know better, really, and think “this is so wrong” every time I grab a snack size bag of chips or sneak a piece of chocolate. I also abandoned my exercise routine when the weather got nice, and my nice lean muscles turned to flab.
Time to stop being lazy.
I’ve been easing back into a normal routine after going MIA for several months, and this is one of those things I want to get back to focusing on. Better eatting habbits, exercise, and losing a few more pounds. While it’s true my original goal was just to lose 20 pounds, I could actually stand to lose 20 more. Who couldn’t? But I really do want to do this. I want to see myself somewhere around the same size as I was before the kids were born. If I don’t do it now, it’s going to be that much harder to get to that size later.
So here we go. Counting calories again, watching what I eat, and easy back into excercising. Can we do it? Yes we can! Who’s with me?
