I like to eat junk. In fact, I just made a bowl of "Chex Krispy Treats" and ate it. I know that it's junk for me and my body, but I can't help it because I'm addicted to junk food. I hate junk food and too large portions. I hate eating because I'm bored, or I think I'm bored. Ugh... I keep trying to lose the rest of this baby weight and then I "reward" myself with junk because I was so good that day. Not cool Ruth, no cool.
So, I need help, motivation, a community of wonderful people who will help me lose the 25 lbs I'd like to get rid of. I know that I look sooo much better than I did. Anyone would after loosing 40 lbs! But it's not good enough for me. I need to do better and move my butt and eat the good food that I buy each month. I've read so much about food and what is good for you and I'm at the point where it is almost a sin to not follow what I've learned because I know what is right. Ten years ago I would have been okay eating sugar cereal for breakfast everyday, but I've learned what processed sugars can do to your body.
Anyway, I may look good right now, but I want to look better. I want to feel better! And I don't want to be in as much pain with my next pregnancy like I was with my first. My body just can't take it unless I build some serious strength.
I'm coming up with a plan and I should post it here to hold myself accountable. I know that I can do this! I can do hard things...I have in the past. This losing weight stuff is a whole different hard though, so it's a challenge for me.
I want to look like this (minus Ken), and fit into medium shirts and size 8 or 6 jeans. I want to wear some of my old skirts and maybe I'll be able to talk Shem into letting me buy a few new pieces of clothing, but mostly I want to wear what is currently in my closet without the bulge around my waist.
I know that I can do this! I just have to be committed and determined and stick to a plan. I'm not fat and I am considered perfectly healthy, but I know that I can be better and I wan to be so that I can live healthy for a long time with my family.
