    Default Time for a Change

    I have slowly been gaining weight for the past 6 or 7 years. Just a little at a time - but those pounds do add up!! (I'm up 30 pounds total) - lately have been feeling so tired ... and honestly, can't stand to look at myself! So - time for a change! Two weeks ago I broke down and went to a weight management doctor and will weigh in every week - I have completely cut out soda and am eating smaller portions - and better snackies in between meals. The one thing my DH and I do every Saturday night is go out for dinner (it is our treat since we don't see much of each other during the week). I will try not to eat as much - however, I don't want to completely change everything ... I mean I want to enjoy our nights out. Anyways, I lost a whole 4/10's of a pound last week -- THAT is a baby step! I weigh in again Monday ... I know I did better than that!

    Funny thing is - my "goal" weight now is where I was 6 years ago when I *thought* I was over weight!!
    I don't want to have to go in to the "womans" clothing section ... !! I want to be back to wearing a size 7/8 or 9/10 ... I can do this!!!!

    Thanks for listening to me rant ...

    We went to Red Lobster for dinner last night but I made sure I didn't eat "like I used to" I brought quite a bit home and only had ONE margarita instead of 2 ... lol ... today I'll get right back on track!

    Jill - I totally understand I am about 70 pounds over where I want to be so I also have been working towards eating better. I agree that if we totally give up some items we will go off track so smaller portions is the way to go.

    Best of luck.

    Good luck~! For me its more of an accoutnability issue. So, I do best if I keep a food journal. Then i can SEE how it is adding up over the course if a day. It helps me make some better choices. Hope this helps!

    I have read that keeping a food journal helps a lot - I need to do that!! I keep thinking, OH, I'll remember what I ate and then write it all down at the end of the day ... but it doesn't work that way, does it? LOL. So - I have yet to start one - but thank you for the reminder!!!
