Well, I am not to sure what I will write in here other than my menu for the day, but then who knows.
I started SBD on January 2nd of this year. Seeing our engagement photos really made me sick to my stomache. I do not want to look lke that on my wedding day. It is time for a new me.
I am 39...but will hit the big 4...0 on Monday!! Man I cannot believe I will be 40. It doesn't bother me....it astonishes me how fast that time went. I have two children from a previous marriage which ended in the most aweful way I can think of. In one day my life changed drastically and I found myself raising them on my own. I didn't think I would ever love or want to be loved again or trust another man for as long as I lived. Then after lots of counseling I realized what happened had nothing to do with me or my kids and I deserved to be ahppy again and felt ready to love and give of myself again. Then I met Michael and our world changed. It is exciting to be getting married again, to know I can trust again and let myself go.
My two kids are the most important people in my life. They grow so fast it amazes me. My "little" boy will be 20 in two weeks and my little girl will be 7 in June. Yep...they are 13 years apart. It just happened that way with them. They are so great together and are my cheering section as I try and reach my weightloss goals. My dughter even went to school after my first ewek weigh in and told her class that I lost 14 pounds. LOL Kids...gotta love them.
With our wedding date approaching in September I believe I have enough time to make a huge change in the way I look. I already feel alot better after only a month on the plan and can already notice a huge difference in my midsection. My jeans are getting too big and my tops are too!!! It feels so good to see it working.
I added in exercise two weeks ago and man does that feel good. I am doing TaeBo Boot Camp and it is kicking my arse!!! Tonight I tried Pilates for the first time and that was OK but I love the sweat with TaeBo and the burn I feel. But the Pilates was relaxing so I may throw that in a couple times a week for a change. It just feels good to exrecise again and I can even admit that I missed it.
So I started SBD at the startling, made me sob like a baby, weight of 303. God I cannot believe I tyrped that!! It makes me shudder. Eegads!! I don't ever want to see that number again. NEVER!!! NEVER!!!! NEVER!!! Tomorrow I weigh in for my 4 week mark and I am excited to see the number. Plus we took measurements and I will track those now too!! I just wish I would have doen that from the beginning. I know I am down 2 nothces in my belt so I know there are quite a few inches gone. I can see it in the miror too!! I look different!! It feels good!!
So that is my story and I am looking forward to the Feb challenge to keep me motivated and on track.
Now I need a ticker and a siggy!!
