My Weightloss Journey: A week later

It's been a week since I made the commitment to myself and my family to get fit, loose weight and eat better. What a week it has been...

As I wrote earlier in the week, I am emotional eater. Issues on the homefront have made it difficult to stick to my plan. Factor in that I discovered yesterday that I eat when I am bored as well, and that just makes a recipe for disaster.

But I made it. I pushed myself beyond my limits this past week. Eating better. Working harder.

And you want to know something...I feel it.

I feel different. I feel more energized during the day. While my body is somewhat sore, it isnt the same constant nearly crippling pain that plagued me for so long.

I have lost 2 pounds this week. So I am not much off my goal of 3 pounds a week.

I realize that my weightloss plan may be a bit ambitious...44 pounds in 4 months. But I think that I can do it...if i do it smart.

I also know that if I don't reach my goal, that is ok. Because it is quality not quantity in this case.

I am determined to work hard.

Ever since I became a mother, I felt like I had lost part of who i was. My identity was my kids. This weightloss journey is my chance to get back a piece of me. The me I was before kids. :-)


  1. I totally get trying to get a piece of you back. I have been trying to "lose the baby weight" for 3 years now. It never lasts long. However ~ I decided (this week too) to train for a 35 mile bike ride. The ride is Sept 27th which gives me a couple months to get in shape. I'm not weighing, I'm not measuring. I'm just enjoying the hell out of being ALONE, in the SILENCE riding my bike.

    I can already feel a difference, and having a real life goal seems to help me keep moving forward.

    I wish you all the luck in the world!!

  2. Good for you. Congrats on loosing 2lbs.


Let me know what you think!!!
