Long Hard Journey

Sunday, January 10, 2010 at 12:03 PM filed under Weight Loss postings
Weight loss for me is a long and hard journey.  I have tried for many years and not been very successful.  I would lose weight and inches and then I would turn around and gain it back plus some.  This time I am determined to lose and make it last.  I am not looking for a quick weight loss solution but a lifestyle change.  Adding workouts to my daily routine is become more natural. I try to work out or do some sort of physical activity every day.  I have found that on the days that I don't do any physical activity I am drained. I don't want to do anything because I feel so tired.  I have also cut back on the amount of calories that I consume on a daily basis by a lot.  I used to eat way too much food.  I am a little hungry durring the day but not too bad because I eat 5 or six times a day versus three.  I have found that by eating more small meals a day I don't feel bloated and stuffed because I eat less at the meal and it takes less food to fill me up. 
So far I have been at this weight loss thing for a few weeks and I have lost 2 1/2 inches on my waist and three pounds.  I would like to lose the weight a little faster because the 3 punds came off two in the first week and one in the second and none this week.  Maybe I need to work out a little bit more.  I meed more activity squeezed into my day. There is just so much to do every day around my house especially with the new baby.  I am trying to get on a schedule so that I can work out first thing in the morning before anybody gets up for the day.  The problem I have with that is the baby doesn't go to bed until around midninght and then if I get up at 5 am to work out and get my day started then I am only getting 5 hours of sleep every day.  I guess I could take a nap after the other three go to school before the baby wakes up.  I am going to try that this week and see how it works.  I may have found my solution.  If not I will try again next week with something else.
