Thank you all!!!! Working on my 200 pounds lost blog

Wednesday, November 03, 2010

All I can say is WOW!!! I am so amazed at all the outpouring of support!!! If I ever needed a boost to help me keep going to reach my goals the support on my last blog surely did it!!!! I am working on my 200 pounds lost blog, I am hoping to have hit the 200 pounds lost by the time I gather all the pictures of the last 6 years that I would like to include.

If there is one thing I can share with all of you, and especially anyone that may be struggling at this time, here it is. Make healthy choices. I know I know you are probably thinking duh, I already know that. I know it is not easy, I still struggle every day, and sometimes every hour. But on those days I try and make healthy choices. Ok so I ate 6 pieces of candy out of the office candy jar! It is not the end of the world, I will have an apple for my next snack!! If I miss a workout that I was committed to, then I will do Strength exercises while doing dishes or folding clothes. I work full time, and have 4 kiddos and a hubby to take care of. Everyday is not always the way I planned it. But everyday I am committed to doing the best that I can do. Each one of the healthy choices that I make gets me closer to my goals. I may not drop 3 pounds every week. But it is working, and it will continue to work. Take it one day at a time, one meal at a time, one workout at a time.

Again I send a big THANK YOU to each of you for the support and encouragement!! Hope everyone has a happy and healthy Wednesday!!!

    Keep going! I am so impressed at how well you do with a family, they're a full time job on their own. Makes me ashamed that I can't do it as a single woman. Awesome work!

    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon That is fantastic...and every word is so true but you're right, we do have to keep on track and stay focused every day. After all it is a lifestyle change, not just a matter of losing the weight. yeah, we will have problems and as you said, every day will not go as we planned it, but we will survive and we will certainly succeed because we have changed our mind sets that we know we can and will succeed!! your blog is awesome.....and you really inspire me.....Way to Go.:) emoticon
