I have decided...

August 4th, 2010 at 06:31 am

To not be fat anymore. I had a very powerful session with my therapist and discovered that every time I binge eat I am making a choice to continue to be overweight. I came out of the meeting with a new found resolve to lose weight. I started drinking water like I should yesterday. I went to the store last night and stocked up on healthy foods. I walked on the treadmill last night for 10 minutes. Hope to build that up. I joined a site called SparkPeople. I have used it before and it is a great weight loss tool. Best of all it is free!

I had $100 to spend at the grocery store and came in just under that at $98.60. However, I had to go to the store this morning to get things to keep at work for breakfast and lunch. Spent $28 this morning. Will have to rework the budget...again.

Forgot to post my positive for the day:

I am strong enough to stick to this diet and lose the weight I need to lose.

    Good for you. A friend of mine at work uses the sparkpeople website. I don't know what it does, but she said it does help. Congratulations on a new you! Being healthier may also help you save money. Let us know how it all goes.

    Do you want to start a challenge? Or at least a check-in for eating healthy and exercising? I don't need to lose much weight, but I need to continue making healthier choices (it has been hard to with my grandmother here and all the eating out and snacking we do).

    Challenge sounds great! I am already doing a challenge to lose 10 pounds in August. But having a daily check in here would surely help me!

    I will start tomorrow and my goal is to walk 1 mile in my new sketcher shape ups. The muggy weather has kept me in a continual sedentery state!
