I’m excited…

Sorta anyways. I’m also very scared. I have worked very hard this month to get started on the new me. I exercise at least 4 times a week (mostly 5 times) and I have watched and thought about darn near everything I’ve put in my mouth. I’ve said no when offered something yummy but not good for the fat. I’ve even skipped the fries at McDonald’s and the Tator-o-lays at Taco John’s.

Will the scale say anything after a month of being good or will it take another month to move a bit? Will my measuring tape say there’s a little less here and there or will it say, nope not yet? Will I learn that exercise is not the enemy and get to at least sorta enjoy it? Will spring come so I can go out for a walk (now that one I know the answer too, it’s nope….not for at least another 3 months)?! I am trying not to be impatient since it took me the past 30 years to gain this weight and can’t expect in a months time it’ll all float away. I really only need to see a couple of pounds from the scale and a quarter of an inch off the rest of me, then it’ll be easier to stay on track next month. BUT…..don’t you like that BUT?!…. I won’t give up if nothing has happened because that means the end of month two I will see some improvements, right?!

I can move better, I have more energy, my pants aren’t cutting me off in the middle so even if there nothing on the scale or tape, I know I’m doing okay. I’m learning!!!

I have found so many cool friends that are experiencing the same as me. It’s a daunting task learning to live better but one that I am sure will be very rewarding. Next Tuesday I will post what my results are, plus or minus. Wish me luck.

Today is Friday Follow so I’m going to go and see who I can meet and greet and who I can follow and learn cool things from. If you come here to visit me also check out me here. This blog is my weight lost one, the other one is my life.

Take care my friends, old and new. Today is a new day, a new challenge…are you up for it? I know I am. God Bless you all!!!

Thanks for stopping on Friday Follow! I am now following you too!

I feel your pain when it comes to losing weight. I am still trying. I just started back at Weight Watchers yesterday. I need to stop having excuses and get exercsing. There always seems like there is so much to do.

I saw that you run a daycare. That is great. Maybe you can get some exercise in with the kids. Do some things like a parade (get those knees up) or games like "lets roll" where you get on the ground and roll across the floor. I just cannot imagine how busy you are!

Congrats on having an Eagle Scout! My son became an Eagle Scout last year too.

Sorry, I just got rambling on! I will be back to see your big weigt loss number!!!
