Here we go...

Monday, April 22, 2013

I've tried many diets and exercise programs before...and have always failed. I love food. And it's not the salads, fruits, and veggie kind of food either. Oh no! It's the fried chicken and homemade macaroni & cheese or a deep dish pasta with at least 2 slices of cheesy garlic bread. Yup. Everytime I start to diet and exercise, my love of food tends to wrap itself around my legs and trip me up every single time. But now, I HAVE to do something about it. I'm right now currently weighing in at 194 and at 5' 3"...it's not so pretty, plus I'm not just considered overweight, I am now considered obese. Yikes! Not such a great thing to hear when you're sitting on a doctor's table. What little bit of self esteem you had just got sliced and diced and then squashed onto the floor into little bitty teeny tiny bits. Well, I'm sick of feeling all depressed and feeling all sorry for myself...which in return just makes me eat more. Oh, it's a vicious cycle! I have to get a hold of myself, not just for the woman in me that is screaming to feel good about herself, but also for the people that I love around me. What kind of example am I setting for my son and daughter as I scarf down food quicker than the speed of light and sound...combined. And then my husband, God love him because he still thinks I'm sexy, who married me when I weighed just a little over 130. Yes, I've given birth to three children...but come on now...they weren't hippos and elephants. Yes, it's time to put a stop to this lifestyle. I've also learned that it's not about cutting out all "delicious" food. It's about portion control...which I am now learning. A small slice of yummy, ooeey gooey cheesy pizza is okay...as long as it's paired with more "good for you" food.
