First off, I want to thank each and every one of you that left support for yesterday’s post. The amount of support I received was overwhelming, and all I can say is THANK YOU. It felt good to finally post the numbers that I think of on a daily basis, and I love that not one of you judged me for the actual number.
On that note, what I noticed from the comments and tweets I received was that many of you struggle as well. That got me thinking about the support I received and how we ALL could use that support. Aren’t we all looking for that magic formula that will finally work for us? What if we could help each other find it?
Going forward, I’ll be sharing things I’ve tried – if they worked, if they didn’t, if I hated or loved them. So far? I love my FitBit (review to come). I love Weight Watchers. I HATE green smoothies (I don’t like drinking my food). I really don’t know if I could do a juice cleanse. I hate working out, but love silly dance games. I love walks and dancing with my daughter. There are countless things I haven’t tried yet but want to. Like fruit for dessert – maybe one day I’ll love eating an apple for dessert as much as Abbie did last night.
I’d love to know what you’d like to hear about on my journey. Do you want breakfast ideas? Dinner ideas? Workouts? Family activities? Advice for fighting cravings (I may be hopeless on that front)? Please let me know – I’d love to incorporate that.
I’m hoping to have the courage to continue to tell you my numbers and progress. Hopefully we can all inspire each other and get healthier. My number one goal in all this is to be around a long time for my little girl, and for her to not battle the same problems I have. Being a good example is key in that.
