After having 2 beautiful babies, having the biggest sweet tooth on the face of the earth, and zero self-control whatsoever I still have 4 pounds to shed before I am back to "my fittest self". I have this tendency to feel really good about myself, then I justify eating tons of junk food (Blasted chocolate, why do I love you so?) and then comes the feeling of guilt and remorse, followed by a determination to "do better", only to repeat the cycle a few days later (or the very next day- details shmetails). AND SO...here is my attempt to really be accountable and to reach my goal.
Here is what I have come up with:
-Make sacrifices in order to feel good about myself
-Be "X" lbs. by my sister's wedding- April 13th
-Count calories (I've already set the amount that is going to work for me & my work outs)
-Work out 5-6 days a week
-Don't buy or eat any junk food or chocolate (I do have these 100 calorie fudge bars that I am allowed to have once a day because frankly, if I were to say NEVER any chocolate I'd probably be caught in the pantry at midnight rebelling.)
-Do eat healthy/low calorie snacks
-If in need, call Josh, mom, or Jessica for support
Again, in no way is this being put on here to make any one feel bad about themselves, or to look down on me, it's just something that I need to do to help me reach my goals and to feel best about myself. I am interested to know what you have done to lose weight and what you do to feel best about yourself physically and mentally. Does it just come naturally for you? Because it certainly doesn't for me.
Thanks for indulging me!
