The Dawn Of A New Day.....

This is my Journey....It will be a long one and many will try to deter me from my ultimate goal but I will not give up. I am a Hard working mother, wife , sister, aunt and daughter. I have overcome many obstacles in my life and during that time I gave up on myself and my health while I focused on everyone else. Its time for me to get back to me. By doing that I will have a much better balance in my life. Filling my day with positive affirmations and working on removing the negative thoughts and fears in my life is my goal. 

I take this weight loss journey:
  • One day at time
  • One meal at a time
  • One workout at a time
  • I am worth it
  • I am deserving
  • My family loves me and supports me in this battle.
  • God is my strength and will carry me when I fall, because we all fall
  • I will get back up and keep trying
For all of you who are on this journey with me, please create your own affirmations. 
This is my battle and I know your battle is different. But we can all encourage and support one another whether it be weight, alcohol, any addictions that bring you pain and loss. 
We are not alone. Thanks to everyone who has supported me during this journey...I am just beginning.

I have lost 3 pounds in my first week. 

I consider that successful. Did I cheat .....YES....did I exercise....NO...
But even though I did not perform perfectly I did still lose....I believe because I made a conscious effort to try. 
I started keeping a journal of what I put in my mouth. Amazing how much you eat when you think you don't.  By watching my serving sizes and writing down what I ate....I lost weight.
Imagine how much more I would lose if I had worked out and Not cheated.

Life just got to roll with the punches....

This is my motto. I am tired of feeling sick and tired. My journey starts again to day. I know I am not the only one who has had a lot of failures before you have success. If losing weight and getting healthy was EASY...we would not be the most obese free country. Gonna get back on the horse and begin again as the alternatives to being healthy are just not good ( diabetes, high cholesterol, stroke, heart attack and the end all death). So here I go again. 
One day at a time.....One meal at a time....One exercise at a time....
I wish all my friends who are on this journey with me the best and lets do this.
