It's been way too long since I posted anything here. Life got in the way, I guess. I totally fell off the diet & exercise wagon, and I guess coming here and posting about how terribly I was doing was just too depressing. Then again, maybe if I'd kept posting anyway, it would have motivated me to get back on track? Huh. Could be, but nothing to be done about it now but move forward, right? So here goes!
You'll notice that I've deleted some old posts and moved some stuff around. I'm a little OCD I think. I just want to focus on me, and not on trying to find stuff to inspire others. I need to inspire myself, first, and if anyone else can find inspiration in that, that's just a bonus :) So just roll with it! I am reposting this, though, since it still applies right now:
It's time. Time to lose the weight. Time to take back control of my body. Time to stop hating the way I look and the way my clothes fit. Time to stop worrying about my health. Time to get fit so that I can enjoy activities with my family. Time to get over my addiction to unhealthy foods. It's just time.
I'm starting this blog to give myself accountability, and so that when I reach my goals (and I will!) I can look back and see just how far I've come. Hopefully it will show me what I'm doing right, and what I'm doing wrong. What works and what doesn't.
I've decided to name my blog "Making Skinny", but don't take that the wrong way. Not only do I want to get skinny, I want to get healthy and I want to get fit. But "Making Skinny" makes me smile, so "Making Skinny" it is! Trust me, I'm the last person to buy into all the Hollywood be-skinny-or-be-square type hype.
So here goes. This is the perfect time for me to start this weight loss journey. I left my job to be a stay at home mom. Our family is complete, so no more trying to deal with losing or maintaining weight around pregnancy. I've joined a gym and paid up the first 6 months. I've dusted off my Weight Watchers books and recipes. I've filled my cupboards with healthy food and I've enlisted my husband's help in controlling the amount of junk that comes into the house. There are no excuses... this is the time!
