I got my new phone today, I like it, I did not like it arriving at 8:30 in the morning though. Glad I heard them knock, we were still sleeping. This afternoon we did our usual Saturday routine with my parents. I got a book and a pair of pants. We also went to the store and got some pork chops for dinner and some feta cheese and tomatoes. After dinner my brother and sister came over for a visit, they recently just left. Tomorrow will be busy, we are driving to Columbus for our nephew’s 1st birthday party and then back because we have to work on Monday. I am skipping my water pill for tomorrow, I don’t want to have to go to the bathroom the whole time we’re driving. Other than this Monday I will get to sleep with Patrick at night. His job is having him train on 3rd shift that night for some reason but then he’s off all day on Tuesday. Looking forward to the Walk From Obesity next Saturday, I am very happy that Patrick is able to go this year. My whole family plus my brother’s girlfriend are walking with us this year.
I ran across this quote and picture on one of my husband’s Facebook friend’s page.
I had to steal it because it really hit me. I have to remember not ever give up especially now because the beginning is going to be the hardest, it will slowly become easier and it will become a habit for you. Exercise may be a pain in the ass, but the longer you do it the easier it becomes for you. Getting up your comfort foods is hard especially for those with food addiction but it will eventually become second nature to eat healthier things and turn to other activities to comfort yourself. I’m not saying that the middle of the journey is a joyride but it definitely is easier than the beginning. That has been my experience. After surgery was the hardest time for me, even 6 months out it was very difficult. At about 13 months for me it became more second nature for me to do healthier things. Every day is a step closer to my goal and I have to remember that. If you don’t you can become easily side tracked and head back done the road of destruction. On the 12th of October will be 15 months out for me. I hope to be down another 4 pounds by then. That would take me to 355 which is a number I haven’t seen in a long time. Maybe 8 years ago I was that. I was in the 380s on my wedding day so I am extremely happy to be smaller than that now. I have to remember these little victories every day so that I don’t get upset and give up. I think I would like to go to Las Vegas or somewhere like a beach to renew my wedding vows with my husband when I have reached my ideal weight. It would probably be around my 10th wedding anniversary, which is still 5 years way, but that is plenty of time to reach my ideal weight. I really want to know what it feels like to be a beautiful bride and be sexy in the eyes of my husband. We will most likely have a 1-2 year old child by then and it would be nice to her him/her there with us. What do you want to do to celebrate your ideal weight?
