Friday Five

Five good things I have learned about myself on this journey.

  1. there is nothing I can't do if I try it and I am determined to do it.
  2. my weight was effecting my health in more ways than I knew about.
  3. I can look like that girl I see in my high school picture but older and wiser.
  4. I can be proud of how I look.
  5. I can feel sexy again.

Five things that are not so great for dieting that I learned about myself and am working to correct:

  1. I turn to food when I am stressed and it DOES make me feel better.
  2. I am hopelessly addicted to coffee. Terribly, dreadfully, absolutely addicted.
  3. I tend to put myself last a lot. Especially when it comes to who to spend money on. (Like buying the more expensive healthy foods.)
  4. It wasn't the way I held my head, I DID have double chins in all those pictures.
  5. The camera DOESN'T add all that weight. I WASN'T just big boned, I WAS fat back then.

I am finding my muscles sore today. But I went to the gym anyway, and I still did the treadmill for twenty minutes after doing the circuit. And guess what? I had it all done and back home again by 9:30.

Great job Cindy! Your list is very insightful!

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
