Less than 25lbs to go

Wednesday, January 09, 2008

So today as I was standing on the scale looking at 163 I realized that I really have come a long way. I have less than 25lbs left to lose to reach my goal, 23lbs to be exact and that is just a crazy feeling. I have spent so much time since my daughter was born feeling bad or thinking about this weight that to see if slowly slip away has really opened me up to so much in life. Last spring when I had lost the first twenty pounds which was my 10% goal, I rewarded myself, but I really haven't set any small goals since then and I realized today how important it really is to reward yourself. It helps you to recognize your own success, while I know that I have lost weight, the fact that I've lost 45lbs since I started hadn't really reached me. In the last week I've started adding to my workout routine, in the hopes of kick starting this year and truly being healthy and setting a good example. With two children in the house, I want them to be healthy for the rest of their lives, I don't want them to go through the weight struggles. I know that they will struggle but I feel like if they learn healthy habits now it will be much easier for them in the long run, they will know the path that this need to take, rather than having to discover it all over again.

    I feel the same way you do about your children and their weight struggles in the future. It sounds like you are being a great role model. Good job
