Thank You!

Sometimes I wonder if anyone besides two people are reading my posts.
In the beginning when I started this "Get Healthy Journey" and this blog,
I mainly did it
to help myself be accountable
with my food
with activity.
Let's be honest here.
Blogging is free. The only investment is time.
You have to spend time out of your life to write something and post it.
I didn't want to spend any money by going to WW meetings and also buying
"special food." Let's face it. My family has been cutting down on expenses for the past 2 years.
That's one of the costs of being a stay-at-home mommy to twins.

By losing at least 30 pounds so far, I've proven a few things to MYSELF.
I stress "myself" because everyone's "Get Healthy" journey is different. It's personal.
I've proven that
*I don't have to live with obesity.
*I can change what I don't like about my life.
*I can be active.
*I can control what I put in my mouth.
*I don't need an extra helping of something.
*I can run and not faint.
*I can love myself.
*I can do all this without spending a whole lot of money.
*I can't do it alone. You've been there along with my family and friends to love and support me.

There is still a lot of work to do. It doesn't stop when I reach my weight goal... whenever that will be.
I have to maintain.

I still blog to be accountable about food and activity, but I also blog for other reasons.
I blog in hopes of helping someone out there reach their "Get Healthy" goals.
I blog in hopes that I inspire someone to start.
I blog in hopes that I teach others who don't have the same weight issues learn to be understanding of how difficult it really is to get started, lose it, and maintain it.
So if you're reading this, I thank you.
Thank you for taking the time to read my posts.
Thank you for supporting me.

Fuel:  Eating clean.
Activity:  3.5 miles, leg work, core work

Fuel:  Eating clean during the day, and indulging in a nice dinner and dessert at night.
Activity:  rest day

Activity:  rest day

I weigh myself tomorrow, and I'll post any changes on Monday. I'd be happy if I lost even 1/2 a pound.

Have a happy and healthy weekend!

I am still reading- my feed reader is ready for you! I hope to hear about the ups and downs of your maintaing your loss, too. That is my fear as I travel to the "second half" of my weight loss journey. I have lost 21.5 pounds and I have 22 pounds to go to reach my goal of 140. Some days I wonder if I will EVER get there! But I will. One day/meal/workout at a time! Thanks for traveling with me!
