My 20th wedding anniversary is in August, so I hope to have reached the goal by then. I told my husband that if I have lost the 40 pounds by our anniversary, then I would only be 20 pounds heavier than when we married.(I was 105!) So that would mean I had put on a pound for each year of marriage! LOL! So, I am sure you figured the numbers out. At my heaviest I was 165 and now I am 150. I am trying to get to 125 at least. After I lose the weight, I am changing the way I eat and the way my family eats. When I go back to "regular" eating, I am going to change the way we eat and the way I cook. I am going to bring in more fruits and veggies and cut the processed foods out. I know that will be hard for my kids, but I know it will definately be better for all of us. It will take more planning and more cooking, but I know that we are definately worth the effort. And when the weather is better, we can get out an be more active as a family.
Andrew and I are talking about training for a half marathon. I don't want to start training in the cold weather, so we will wait until the weather is better and then find a half marathon somewhere that we can participate in. There is one here, but it is to soon. We can't be ready by then. However, they do have a 5K we could be ready for, maybe. But getting out and starting, and moving toward a goal is great for now.
Well, gotta go, Tae Bo is calling my name. And I am meeting a friend for lunch at 11:30. Gotta dash for now.
