Time To Get Real

So, this morning I took a picture of the number on the scale, as I was standing on it, duh? I am so tempted to add that picture for all to see. Will that help me to get real about weight loss and being healthy?? I am not sure, I'm torn. I need to be held more accountable to myself and if embarrassing myself a little helps get it in perspective and gets me more dedicated then I am all for it.

I'm also wondering if I should start a separate blog. Is this family stuff or is this all about me?? Let me know what you think...

So here is some frustration - I've been semi working on eating right and exercising since the New Year. My 20th class reunion is this summer and I want to look good for that, but, then I question that? Why?? What does it matter?? I have seen 2 people from our class in the last 20 years, the ones that matter, what does it matter what the other 150 people think?? But, anyways - my friend Maureen and I are training, well kind of, for the Missoula 1/2 Marathon this summer. I've gone to the Y at least 2-3 a week for the last 3 months. I've eaten more fruit this year already than I probably ate last year. I gave up chocolate, soda pop and alcohol for Lent. And still my body has not changed in any shape or form. I'm not looking for a major transformation but maybe a little change. Maybe my pants being a little loose would be nice. Ugh! What to do??? Oh, yeah and I drink a gallon of water EVERY work day, that's 5 days a week for the last 2-3 months - still nothing!!!! Help! I am frustrated and pissed off. Do I have to be heavy my whole life? Why can't I get this together???

Well, if it helps, I think you look great. But I know you have to be happy with yourself before you can get past any issues. AND, do you realize how much stress can add to body weight and body fat? More than you would probably like to think! :) Try some relaxation techniques every evening after the kids are in bed. Deep breathing.

Kelley,
Dustin and I did the Ramona Kubrich diet a after I had Braelon and was done nursing. It is all about what you eat. Dustin lost 30lbs in 6 weeks and I lost 20 in 6 weeks, but lost more than 20 total inches off of my body. It was great. You see her 3 times a week to weigh in and she holds you accountable. I am planning to do it again once I am done nursing Drew. Just a thought. I too know your frustrations, I think it is something all of us busy moms understand. I just want to get dressed and feel comfortable and confident....not anywhere close to there yet.
