What we decide to do is important

Sunday, June 13, 2010

After 4 weeks (and 15 lbs. lost), I've begun to recognize all the little decisions we make during the day, and how I let my bad habits dictate my decisions. I now freely choose to "eat this and not that", and to-when-and how to exercise (instead of watching TV). These new ways are not quite yet (good) habits -- it takes a true decision still to do the right thing -- but the fact that I am choosing to make these decisions is pretty cool. And, now I've decided, that while its to hot outside to go walk the dog, I will go to the gym and work the treadmill. Thanks SparkPeople.

PS: My son just graduated from high school yesterday. I am so proud of him. emoticon
I was asked if that made me feel old. I don't. I feel younger every time I tie on my running shoes and with every lb. of fat I take off of my back (or belly).

    emoticon to your son for graduating.

    We should not feel old because our kids are growing up, I look at it as me time. I've had friends who had a hard time letting go of their children when they decided not to live at home or to go off and get married and start their own families. But I say- isn't that what we parents strive for all those years, that our kids will leave the nest and have fulfilled lives. My son is only 11, and I know I will be a bit sad when the time comes for him to do his own thing. But i will rejoice and be proud and do all those things I haven't done.

    Also emoticon on your weight loss. Keep up the good work.

    I'm realistic and know that I can expect the numbers to start looking more like my goal of 1.5 lbs. per week. What is best though is the 2 inches I've taken off of my belly.
