DIETING… I just LOVE how awesome I feel those first few days of a new diet!

About 2 weeks ago I started a nutrition program.  I have had weight problems for YEARS!!! I had a few good years in-between college and marriage when I was at my lowest weight and feeling GREAT… 🙂

…but then the children came…

…and the bad eating came with it, along with the couch lifestyle, and sluggishness.  I think apart of me thought that chasing around a 1 year old would be enough… Well, 30 pounds later… it WASN’T!!  Then came my second child, and along with it came a heart problem, depression, and even MORE weight gain!!!  I got caught in a place of darkness, fatigue, and loneliness.  My heart issue caused so much tiredness, fatigue,and shortness of breath… and DEPRESSION.  I was literally stuck on the couch and it took all of me to just get up and take a shower.  Much more to even think about taking care of my children!!  I was so BLESSED by my family for taking me in and helping care for myself and my 2 kiddos.  It was a rough couple years… but, in those 2 years, my heart went from working at 15% to functioning at 30%!  Unfortunately, the weight was still as issue.


So, I have been on my new program for 14 days, 10 hours, and 3 mins… LOL!!!  The program consists of 2 shakes,  a low cal dinner, and Cleanse days.  Boy, do I LOVE those cleanse days… (SIKE!!!!!!!!)  BUT, I have lost 10 pounds so far, 9 1/2 inches, and have seriously GAINED so much ENERGY!!!!  Yes, I wanted to lose weight… I NEEDED to lose weight!!!!  But, what I need for myself and my children was… ENERGY!!!!!!  I have to teach them everyday, cloth them, bathe them, take them to the playground, AND chase after my super active 4 year old!!!! Not to mention, the HOUSEWORK… And, my husband gets super mad when I drink energy drinks… lol… (so would my cardiologist if he knew…)

I had reached the end of the line where I would try ANYTHING!!!!!

I am excited to see where it leads… I still have 75 pounds to reach my GOAL weight… and I am DETERMINED to do it… to lose the weight…To not have my children watch me suffer from poor health. If I want my children to have a healthy lifestyle, I need to lead by example.  Just as I lead by example with my words.  I CAN do it!  I have the support this time, and I’d love to have my friends come along side me and we can GAIN ENERGY TOGETHER!!!!
