Making Some Changes

I've been unhappy with my weight for.....about 10 years now.  The last time I remember really being happy with the way I looked was my wedding day.  Realistically, I'll never be there again.  Let's get real, I've had two kids.  My body has changed.  I'm in a place right now where I'm not completely unhappy.  Yes, I have a belly that I'd like to get rid of please.  However, I am strong.  I've been working out a lot and feeling good it.  I'm rocking some pretty good leg and arm muscles.  And, my husband is happy.  That's most definitely important.  The number on the scale, however....not moving.  I'm hovering around the same number week after week.  The working out part, I got that.  I'm working out for an hour and a half about four to five times a week.  I'm good.  My issue is my diet.  Oh - my diet.  I love food.  LoveLoveLoveLoveLove food.  Love bad food.  Fast food?  Yes please!  I know it's disgusting.  I've seen Super Size Me and Fast Food Nation.  What did those do?  Make me want a Big Mac.  I'm not even kidding.  So the diet is where I need to focus.  My husband challenged me to take one month and just eat as healthy as I can.  I'm skeptical because if I make a ton of changes at once, I'm afraid I'll freak out and find myself in the McDonald's drive thru for said Big Mac.  So instead of eating nothing but chicken and broccoli for a month, I'm going to make some small changes that should help me at least kick some bad habits.

First up: FAST FOOD.  No fast food from today through the end of August.  Absolutely none!  This should make a difference because I hit a drive thru at least once a week.  Sometimes twice or three times.  So that is change number one.  NO FAST FOOD FOR A MONTH!  Let's do this!

 This is going to be hard...

  1. Be strong! You can do it! Don't undo all your hard work in the gym with a quick fix of fries (oh so hot and delicious I know!) I'm in a big weight loss journey too. Its SO hard when you properly love food, good luck!
