I have officially made it to day 3.

A little background about myself; I am a stay at home mom of 4, ages 11, 10, 6, and 5. The five year old doesn't start kindergartern until the fall so I cart her to preschool 3 days a week. Both my parents struggle with their weight as have I most of my life. I was overweight when I met my husband (a size 14) 14 years ago but was comfortable and healthy. It seems that I have kept 10 pounds from every pregnancy and am now uncomfortable and pretty out-of-shape. In the winter of 2007 I joined WW and lost 40 lbs. Emotionally felt great but had no physical energy. I fell off the wagon and slowly gained back every pound plus 10!! Last fall (2009) decided to give WW another try and took off close to 20 lbs in a very short time. Unfortunately I hate eating foods with added fiber just to keep my POINTS down and stopped paying attention to my eating habits. Gained back 8 pounds. I have finally given up on WW because I know I won't follow it forever. It was time to find a way to change my eating lifestyle. I stumbled across FitClick while looking for printable food diaries and it looks like it may have just what I need. So I will try it and see where it takes me.

I have a very bad habit of weighing myself every morning before my shower. This morning the scale was nice...the pounds are already starting to drop off! It is a great motivator but, from past experience, can be discouraging when the plateau hits.

Yesterday, was a more normal day, spent mostly at home doing things I would consider "normal for me". I did have to be out the door by 9:00am so I did not take the time to walk on the treadmill before I showered and left. When I came home around 12:30pm I was already showered and didn't feel like doing it again so I still didn't walk. I don't know why I can't seem to motivate myself to do it. I always feel a sense of accomplishment when it's done but the whole time I am thinking of other things I could be doing even if I wouldn't be doing them. So dumb!

I did stay withing my target calories, but am high on my protien, and was a little low on my fat (balance diet), not complaining about the fat part, but am wondering if I've chosen the right diet to follow?!? If anyone out there actually reads this (besides me) a little feedback would be appreciated.

I was out the door again first thing this morning so I've already showered and I have to go back out this afternoon so the big debate in my head is, "do I want to get all sweaty and have to shower again? How much time is this going to take away from the other things I wanted to get sone today?" Speaking of which, time to sign off and get my body moving.
