Weight loss requires changing your lifestyle

Email DJ

Kelley / 8 Years Ago

I totally agree that in order to remain healthy it must be a lifestyle change. There are no days to take off. Every choice we make affects our bodies. No one makes us eat anything. We have to put the utensil that holds the food to our mouth. The choice is entirely in our hands. There are no excuses. Society or your upbringing creates habits that need to be broken. I do not have to have a dessert in order to feel I have eaten a satisfied meal. I do not have to eat ice cream every day to make life good. I feel that I put so much value on food making me happy. That is what leads people to indulge. So many are trying to fill a void with their favorite foods. Once the meal is finished, your problem is still there.

I can safely say that I feel some chains have been broken over the past couple of months. My husband is in Texas so I have been responsible for purchasing and cooking food. I still eat out sometimes, but I make smart choices. I always know the nutritional information for what I am eating. I like and feel that I need structure. If I plan for the next day, I am not leaving an open area for me to eat something that is not good for me. I plan to relieve stress. Planning takes time and effort, but it is worth it.

As of today, I have just a little under 6 lbs. to lose by June to reach my ultimate goal. I know I can do this. I will be so happy when I do reach it. I know the journey is not over then. Maintenance can be just as challenging. I am ready for what the future holds.

    Job Searching
    I talk about my current job situation a lot. It has not been a great experience. I have hope that there is something else out there that will be a better fit for me. It is scary to look at jobs nation-wide. I do not want to move for a job unless I know it is a match. I will continue at my current job and make the best of the situation as I continue to search.

    DJ's return is set
    We are so excited to share that DJ's ticket to return to the states is set. It now allows us to start really preparing for our move to Virginia. Kelley is trying to find a job. We will look for a house to rent. The hope is that we prepare as much as possible to make the transition the least stressful as possible. We are both super looking forward to a change. Things can be always be worse, but we're both ready to get out of our current living situation.
