With all this downer shit said... I have been on this new road for about two weeks now. I have only lost three pounds and I am still struggling with making the right food choices... but I am a work in progress and the fact that I have kept it up this long is enough for me. Day by day, right?
I think what I have been most impressed about is how determined and persistent I have been. I never thought I could run 20 minutes straight and I defied that thought with in days. I am more then I thought I could or would be and that only gives me more confidence that someday, down this long road, I will be where I want to be with my body and my health! I made this change not as a diet but a change in lifestyle, which I know will take longer then I have patience for.
I guess, I just keep imagining my ideal body a year or two down the road, because I know once I get there I will not regret a single workout or meal choice!
I have found a great website Livestrong.com that has helped me track my weight loss, calories and workouts!! It really been helpful and I suggest you sign up for the free profile. I also have the app on my windows 7 phone so I can track my calories through out the day with ease!!!
If you do join, make sure to become my friend (k_delarosa) and we can be cheerleaders to each other!!!
