Just one of those days

This is what I should have eaten

Today really was just one of those days.  We had call-ins at work (and of course, we never call people in to cover), I had no lunch, was getting a headache before the day ended.  And I did the unthinkable, I stopped at Arby’s on the way home.  Not the healthies food I could have chosen, was it?  But I guess it wasn’t the unhealthiest either.

Anyhow, I know I gave in to the stress…and the hunger.  And it didn’t even taste that good.  I think there’s a lesson there…my home cooked food tastes much better than what I can get in a fast food place.   Another lesson would be to not allow myself to get that hungry.

Now to make sure I get right back with my healthy eating first thing tomorrow.  Plan and prepare my meals and snacks.  Don’t give in to stress.  Two steps forward and one step back…

Lose like a winner

My happier running days

I’ve struggled with my weight my entire life.  I’ve had brief periods in my life when I’ve been at a normal weight, but most of the time I’ve been overweight…obese…morbidly obese.   Now is the time to get off the weight loss roller coaster, to get to a healthy weight, and maintain that weight…for the rest of my life.

This blog will chronicle my weight loss journey…a journey from being morbidly obese to becoming fit, healthy, energetic, and happy in my own skin.  Will it be easy?  Not likely.  Can I do it?  You bet!  Will I do it?  Try to stop me.

Don’t get in my way…I’m off!  I’m going to lose like a winner!
