I really enjoyed January, having a blog and goals to keep me centered really is wonderful. I haven’t really been exercizing too much a few minutes of situps on the Ball now and then. I traded the Ball for the computer chair and I bounce along as I type….
It’s the begining of Febuary now and I’m striving hard to get under 90 so I get my surprise! I dipped to 89.5 kilos a few days before the 1st of Feb. but it went back up so I only take that day’s account of the 1st of the month. I really wanted to go into my weight issue on my new blog but i feel it doesn’t have a place so I keep it secret for now….
All the stress of the month helped me learn not to eat even less junk foods. Now when we eat out I’m allowed nothing but a filling salad and juice and that’s starting to be ok with me. I still sometimes want more and sometimes when I’m tempted I give into a chocolate here and there but nothing like before.
My mom and I agreed to have a weigh off back when she was hear for my delivery and I really understand more about having motivation to succeed. My motivations are:
To look good in a short skirted summer’s dress
To be thin enough to please my husband
To be thin enough to please myself of course!
To run without feeling winded
For my marriage to be healthy and happy
For myself to be healthy and happy

I’m not saying my mom doesn’t have good motivations she’s struggling with new borderline diabetes I just hope she continues to try and loose weight. I want her too beat me in this race. I want her (and my dad) to be healthy too so she and my dad can be around longer and watch my kids growing up too. Please all those out there who think they can never be thin don’t listen to yourself! I’m am THE laziest person (and a procrastinator) who makes every excuse not to loose weight and exercize and look how much I’ve lost already by mainly just changing how i eat and a little exercize thrown in when i can’t get under the next kilo on the scale. I hate to use a cliche line but IF I CAN DO IT, SO CAN YOU!
