emoticonWhy do you want to lose weight?
Answer: I want to look and feel better. Right now, I'm a fluffy version of my fitter self. I want Emily to have the energetic mom that Colin & Logan had.

emoticonNext, take each of those reasons and reflect upon how your life will improve if you address these reasons.
Answer: Looking better will bring back my self-confidence. Feeling better will make me a happier person. Increasing my energy will make playing with my children easier and more enjoyable.

Finally, set some weekly, doable goals for yourself to help you move forward in a positive manner.
emoticonWhat can I do this week to improve my appearance?
Answer: STOP dressing so "fat". Wearing baggy clothes just makes me look fluffier.

Answer: Eat healthier. Walk/run or SOMETHING that will rev my metabolism.
emoticonWhat sports, exercise, or other physical activity can I do this week to improve my fitness?
Answer: see above
emoticonWhen and how often will I do it?
I've already run twice. I have plans to run once or twice more. I will do my best to do two more workouts that aren't running or walking.

Positive self talk. Also, accept compliments as they are given.
emoticonWhat actions will I take this week to improve my health?
Make better food choices. Move more.

I got this list of question in an email from the Biggest Loser. I decided to use it help me with my blog for today. Gave me a lot to think about. Hopefully, I can follow through with the "eat better" part. I've got so many baked goods in my house right now it's insane. Thanks Mom but YIKES.

Oh and here's the latest new picture -
