Changes are a coming...

I've been wasting money each month on my WW pass. It just wasn't working for me. I had NO motivation to follow their program. I'd leave my weekly meetings frustrated and feeling worse about myself. I'm not sure why I felt that way. I didn't want to count points. I didn't want to journal. It just wasn't working for me and that's ok.
My sister sent me a link the the MOST amazing blog EVER. She talks about an iPhone app called "Lose It." This FREE app is exactly what I was looking for. It was able to calculate my daily calories needed in order to lose weight. You have the option of having it calculate the calories needed in order to lose 1/2, 1, 1 1/2 and 2 pounds a week. It will also give you an approximate date that you will acheive your weight loss goal. Trainer Momma has recipes and workouts listed on her blog. She's a personal trainer and I know that she's an answer to prayers!
For the first time in years I woke up today excited and ready to start. I even want to exercise. I read a woman's story about how a year ago she could barely walk up her driveway and now she can run 13 miles. I want that to be me. I'm ready to lose the weight once and for all.
I'm tired of carrying around with my my badge of depression, stress, and even happiness. I ate all the time for all the wrong reasons. I hate horrible food. I'm ready to change.
Last night I cut everything in half before I put it on my plate. I had 1/2 of a chicken breast, 1/2 corn on the cob, fruit and cucumbers and tomatoes. I was totally satisfied and happy that I had been able to actually face the fear of being hungry and just do it.
I am doing well with my goals. I'm not working on all of them at once of course but I am working on some. I know it will be so much easier when the kids are back in school. And I have more time to work on them.
Thanks for the support.
