Today was a pretty good day diet wise, my husband had some family over, and he cooked a lot, (he plans on beginning his diet on Monday), and I can happily state that I stuck to my guns and didn't indulge in things that would make me later OVER indulge. That's what I tend to do when I eat something that I deem "toxic" to my progress. As my diet profile states, I am an all or nothing type of dieter, heck I'm pretty much an all or nothing type of person. Anyway today went well, and I plan on making the best of tomorrow as well. I haven't begun my exercise routine yet, but I will soon. For me, in the beginning it's all about getting the right foods in first. Once I get myself together "foodwise", and I feel comfortable with my progress there, I will begin incorporating exercise into my daily life once again, and I have to say I am pretty excited about that. I know what works for me, I just have to apply it, I will do this again, I can do this again!

New Year, New Incentive...

In January of 2006 I embarked on a journey to lose weight, I weighed 290+ pounds. By December of that same year I had lost 146 pounds. In November of 2008 I discovered I was pregnant, over the next 9 months I proceded to gain all of my weight back, after having my beautiful daughter I lost 45 pounds without trying, it might have been due to the loss of appetite after my C-Section, because after I healed my appetite was back with a vengance. I ended up GAINING 18 pounds. So here I sit on the first of January 4 years later looking to make a promise to myself. My promise is to try harder, to workout at least 4 times a week, and to enjoy the life I have with my husband and my baby girl.I know i can lose the weight again, I just have to apply myself in the same manner that I did the first time. I have no excuses not to do this, I just have to talk myself out of giving into the temptations that are often more tempting in my mind than they actually are in reality. I am a foodie, we tend to sensationalize food mentally, when in reality certain things just aren't worth the guilt. So here's to a new year, and new experiences.
