So this is Me

Wednesday, May 17, 2006

hello, and can I just let out a big sigh of RELIEF? *siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiighhhhhhhh
I am finally here. On sparkle. Changing my lifestyle. Eating for me. Big Step. Very Big step. Good thing is, I didn't trip over anything to get here. My mind is clear and made up and this is what I am doing.
though I must confess that I have been doing WW since the end of february. WW online. It's been good to me. I'm still new to it, so I have had my fluctating points here and there, but the good thing is I am eating healthier.
I have "done atkins". Atkins has been a great friend of mine and I lost weight and maintained for years. That is, until I had my last child. It was easy to stay on Atkins when they were infants/toddlers, but now that they can have a say in what they want to eat, etc....it isn't so easy to cook for me. And unlike the Atkins approach, i wanted my kids to eat fruits and veggies, etc. So after packing on the extra pounds of doing atkins and then splurging on weekends....i am here.
it was always easier for me to lose weight when I was single. you know, that "put yerself on the market" diet. I am married now, to a great husband. One who sees past the scales, past the dress size, past all that. Which in some cases, made it easier for me to put on the pounds...but what I have come to realize now, is that he loves me for me. now its time for me to love me for me. And I do. I love Me. This is why I say I am eating for Me. I am not eating for Comfort, to hide feelings, none of that.
I love me. I love eating Healthy and I want to stick around this earth awhile.
I am still new to this sparkle, so feel free to point me in any direction for great tips, suggestions, etc.
Good luck to all on your weightloss journey!!

    ArmyWife - You are so welcome back! I have missed you on the boards, and wondered how much to worry about where your wonderful hubby is stationed and how much he might be in 'harm's way'.

    It really is true that we can be better wives and mothers when we are healthier and happier!
