I did it!!

Well  made it through my first full week and I feel great. I'm making some very good decisions but also am letting myself splurge. I think that is the key, don't get on yourself for having that cookie. If we don't indulge every once in a while we are never going to stick with healthy eating.

I'm so happy to have lost 4.8 lbs this week. I worked really hard to lose this and it makes all the work worth it. Now I need to get back into walking. I don't have much time to enjoy the outdoors before it starts raining again.

Here's to making healthy choices!!!

Day 2 went really good thanks to tips from my best friend Becca!! On my computer at work every 2 hrs it reminds me to finish my water. I love this idea, it really keeps me motivated to finish before the alarm!! So I was wondering what things do you use to help you during the day?

It's gonna take sometime for me to figure out what is worth eating and what to pass on. I was getting a good grasp on this before I fell off the wagon. I know it won't take that long it's just frustrating that I let myself go back to the old way of eating.

I have a 4 yr old daughter who I can see that because of my choices she isn't eating what she should and that breaks my heart. I don't want her to have to deal with her weight for the rest of her life like I have. I guess she is one of the biggest motivations I have.

Here's to it being the middle of the week and to healthy choices!!

Long time no post, well that's about to change. So I fell off the wagon after my dad passed away and I started my new job. I love my job and the people I work with are awesome. But, I sit at a desk all day which means I can eat all day. We have snack days or people bring food in about once a week. And just has my blog title states I have no self-control. Well that's going to stop. NO more excuses. So here goes round 2 and I'm going to win this one.

So I weighed in today and I'm not where I started last time so that is good but I gained quite a bit back. So here it is 258.1 lbs. That's okay.

Here's to new beginnings and to making healthy choices.
