Momma Hunt
Well after much soul searching I have realized that it is time to get tough with myself. As a mom and a teacher of teenagers I would never in a million years take the mountain of excuses that I come up with for not exercising and loosing weight. If my son gave this much attitude he would be in time out and if it were my students I would tell them to stop whining at me and just do what they have to do. So why have I been allowing myself to make excuses. I think the reason is because the thought of 80 pounds is so overwhelming it cripples me. So with the suggestion the person who is helping me with my eating issues she suggested that along with a reward for a small goal I need to have a negative consequence if I don't meet that goal. So here it is in writing I know the amount seems a bit much but I am nursing so that can really help provided I don't eat like a trucker. My goal 25 pounds by Labor Day. The reward 50.00 to the shoe store. The negative consequence 50.00 to the charity I hate the most knowing that for the next few years they will be sending me flyers etc. So here we go, no excuses its time to get the job done. I am getting tough, I mean it!!!

    You know what? You've inspired me to join you! Don't know if it will help knowing that somebody else out there is along for the ride, but I'm going for it. I've been on 4 weeks of bedrest post-surgery, and the lack of exercise, combined with lots of stress eating has packed on the pounds. I'm still in a non-weight-bearing cast for the next 6 weeks, so there's not a whole lot I can do. BUT, I'm inspired by your blog to start eating healthier (and less), and to get out there on my crutches a bit more to get some exercise. Good luck, lady!!!
