Reality Check


Ok, so this whole losing weight and getting in shape thing can't be that hard to do, right? Well, to be honest, the exercise part should not be that hard for me. I like to work out, be it the tough in the gym hard core stuff, or the fun going for a walk with the kids or using the Wii stuff. And any kind in between. I like to be active. So that should be a piece of cake. "Should" being the operative word.

The hard part will be the food. I love food, and all the bad kinds probably. Actually, I do eat quite healthy, I would like to think. But of course, there is the snacky stuff. But I like my fruits and veggies a lot. The problem I foresee myself having is the portions. Ok, do I really need to measure every single thing I eat? Really? 1/4 cup of this, a tablespoon of that. To me, that is like....what.....That won't work. I can maintain a little bit of self control for goodness sakes! So, um, isn't it possible to keep eating the way I eat and still lose weight? Hmmm. Probably not, huh? It's not WHAT I eat right, it is how MUCH and how I PREPARE it, right? Or no?

This shall be an interesting journey.

  1. I wish that I enjoyed exercise as much as you. LUCKY. I think you can do it. And the fact that you gave yourself a full year means you are willing to do it right.

    Best wishes to you with your weight loss!
