I know it has been months since I have posted anything. I am sorry for that. I have had some personal stuff going on and I was off my game. I am now 9 days away from my 44th birthday or the 15th anniversary of my 29th birthday as my husband says. I wish I could say that things are wonderful and that I was well on my way to my goal weight. I have actually been heading the wrong direction. The call of sodas has been a bit much for me to overcome of late with my headaches, which has not had a good effect on my weight loss.
I have recently come back in contact with a group of friends that gave me lots of support and so many of them inspire me. I am so thankful that they are back in my life, especially when I was feeling like just taking a break for a bit.
I did make another decision. My cousin recommended a book to me called “Real Food: What to Eat and Why”, which really resonated with me. I purchased Nourishing Traditions and started reading it too. After reading it, I decided to steer as clear as I can from fat free foods. I made the decision to try raw milk, which we try to keep in stock at our house. If we can’t get it, we get organic whole milk. We are really trying to steer clear of the processed foods. I am trying to make more from scratch. I have been making muffins from scratch for my younger 2 children (and slipping in spinach where I can) and we make bread as well. It just makes sense to me to do that because there aren't preservatives in it and they eat it fast enough. I am making it in a bread maker because my right wrist has been in pain since I fell in October of last year. They are currently talking surgery if the pain comes back.
I am currently at 192.2. My goal weight is 135. That’s 57.2 pounds that I need to lose to get to my goal weight. I am taking back control of my health and fitness. I'm the only one that can make the changes necessary to change my body. I haven't made the final decision about my plan, but I'll let you know as soon as I do.
