Dont grow weary...

I keep telling myself that!!

You see, I use to be able to eat what ever I wanted and never gain a pound. I could eat an entire pizza and it not bother me at all. So..sometimes when it comes to weight loss, I just get tired of thinking about it all..

BUT  I am not growing weary! I really, really am excited about this!!

I have not exercised in 2 days but I have been doing ok with my eating.

BUT tonight, my sweet DH wants hot fudge brownie Sundays..SOOOO, I'm going to have one!

Don't grow weary ladies!!

Getting Started.

I ladies! I'm joining you in your weight loss journey. Here is a little about me.

I met my husband at a very fit 130 pounds. It wasn't long until children came and I was still able to keep the weight off, until our 5th child.

I will post a picture later

My reasons for losing weight is to be be at a normal weight in case the Lord blesses us again.

and the reason my heart really desires to lose weight is for my dont get me wrong he has never said anything about my weight. He loves me just the same. But I know my husband and he would prefer me thin.

And I want to look good in my clothing..I want to be an example- that you can have many children and you don't have to be fat and frumpy. is goes. NO looking back. NO falling off the wagon. I am going to do this!!!!!

I actually started on Fri. Here is my plan.
 I replace 2 meals with only fruits and veggies. The meal I do eat will be somewhat healthy, but I will eat until I am full, maybe even a small amount of desert.
Nothing but water or herbal tea to drink.
Exercise at least 4 times a week. This past Saturday I walked 3 miles with the family.

This is the plan my husband suggested to me. Not only for weight loss but to add more fruits and veggies in our diet. He bought me a Vitamix to make smoothies with. I wont only have smoothies, I will have salads, stir fry , cabbage, lots of things I can eat.

Since Friday, I am down 2 pounds! I cannot believe this! My goal is to lose 2 pounds a week.

I'm excited ladies!!!!!!!!
