Tired of mornings following a night of regretful eating. Last night it was an eight count of chocolate covered donuts. Damn my husband for bringing the devil disguised by chocolate in our home!
Okay, truth moment. It’s not his fault. I’m the one who stuffed—actually, enjoyed small pieces to savor every bite—the donuts into my mouth. All the while knowing I was going to feel terrible in the morning after. I’m no stranger to this psychotic cycle of regretful eating.
BUT enough of the problem. Now, we move to the solution.
From now until the last Wednesday of 2016, I will be replacing my general Wellness Wednesday posts with my personal journal of my journey to lose at least 15 of the 25 lbs that I was supposed to lose this year.
One important fact that I learned this year is that no goal is accomplished alone. So I’m creating a team of important people. My goal-oriented obsessed daughter will encourage me with talks about her own weight loss journey. My friend Joyce, recently diagnosed with diabetes, will help me with sample means she receives from her nutritionist. My neighbor, LaNita, a woman 10 yrs my senior whose commitment to lifelong fitness shows will be my workout buddy. And my co-worker, who eats healthy every day but could care less about exercising, will serve as my daily example of meal planning for the day.
If you have a weight loss goal to attain by 12/31/2016, join me. We can do it together!
I plan to post weekly progress via this blog and daily posts on Facebook. Follow me @firstname.lastname@example.org
