The Goal

Ok, I confess.. I am not running this morning. But I did get my husband to agree to work out with me tonight. He and I are complete opposites.. in many ways... but mainly in the weight department. He is 6' tall and a perfect 150. He says he wants to start gaining weight.. HA.. how do I cook food for two totally different goals???

Well.. my goals are quite simple really. I dont care to be the perfect thin... just healthy thin. Which for my height and body build would be between 145 and 155. My body is scarred from surgeries, especially my abdomen, so beauty is not really an issue for me. I just want to be around to play with my kids and grandkids for years to come.

My weight now? Do I dare write this down for all to see?? I guess I must... 208. Yes.. I am over the 200 mark. I never thought I would be there in my life. I , of course, went over when I was pregnant... both times.. but always expected it to fall off after giving birth. The first time it did!! The second time it hung around a little longer... and then I was diagnosed with cancer.. had two major surgeries and sat on my butt for a year. I guess that would be the reason I am (insert 'f' word here) .

My short term goal is to get under the 200 lb mark before our move to puerto rico.. which could be as soon as a month away.. so.. I better get moving!!

*****confession*****
I did GREAT on my diet yesterday.... until about 9pm and my husband went to bed and left me watching the end of CSI... then I quietly went into the kitchen and grabbed the ice cream.. ugh. I am so mad at myself. So today.... THROW AWAY THE ICE CREAM!!!

if you only have low-fat foods in the house, that's all you'll eat!

Have fun at the grocery store picking out substitutions...Lay's makes some great fat-free chips that were a lifesaver for me :)
