Got to Get Real
Sunday, September 11, 2011
Okay, having Sarah here for a couple days was great. She is a dear friend to me, more than just friends she is family all the way. We had lots of fun, but another thing that was very special to me was having one of my Sparker friends here in person to talk too about weight loss, health and fitness.
I know it is so easy to gain back weight after we lose it, but I am not happy at this size and really want to get back down to a size 6/8. I don't have to be a 4/6 again. Sure would be great but I want to be realistic too. I have entered my 50th year on this planet and by the time I celebrate my 50th birthday I do not want to also be fat. I want to be Fit and 50 not Fat and 50!!!!!!!!
I am proud of my years, I have been very lucky with my health and have a great family and awesome friends. But this is just something for me. I am uncomfortable at this weight. And it is time to Get Real again.
Being a vegetarian makes is way too easy to over eat starchy foods, and my metabolism has always been slow and easy to gain if i eat too many complex carbs. Sugars too but I don't sit around eating simple sugars, I want the bread, pitas, pastas, potatoes, and dry beans. I only eat whole grains but that doesn't matter. Grains, potatoes and beans = fat on me. It will not be easy to lose the weight again, but I am drawing the line now. SO no place to go but down :)
