Starting fresh, it feels like I'm right back where I was 5 years ago!

Wednesday, June 06, 2012

Hello Spark friends! I have been so inconsistent on here the past few years (with 2 small, gorgeous childen to blame) that I feel like I'm new again! Also, my starting weight is very close to what it was 5 years ago, and again what it was when I rejoined after having my son. It seems the 195 zone is where my body settles when I'm not doing much to fight the battle of the bulge. Well, the battle is on now!

I just reviewed my pictures and the photos of me at 175lbs. make me SO anxious to get back to that weight. I'm jealous of that person, and it's me! Of course 5 years ago I had more time to work out and make everything all about me, so now I'm going to have to approach this somewhat differently. Still, no excuses. I know that diet is 80% of the battle anyway so I won't let myself get defeated just because my workout time is limited.

The sun is shining, I've got a beautiful family and a job I love, and I've got the ability to make myself delicious, healthy meals and walk wherever my feet will carry me. What more could I need?
