On the journey....again

So, here we are.

It's been a long, long time since I've posted here. I've had a(nother) baby.

Woot! for babies! Boooooo for baby fat.

So I have some to lose, but I'm cool with it.  Only about eight pounds, this time around, which most people would scoff at--but for me (a 5'0" frame) it's a lot.  Eight might as well be 80, because some days, it feels like I have that far to go.

My lifestyle has changed, as has the way I eat. No more slim-fasting, no more weird diets.  There will be only real food for this Momma.  If that means that it takes me twice as long to lose my eight pounds--which, I don't think it will, but if it does--then so be it.  I'm not putting any more fake crud into my body, if I can help it.

I'm writing here tonight, knowing that no one will probably see this.  It's all the better, I suppose.  This is more for me, anyway.

I need some motivation.  Why is exersise and 'dieting', if you want to call it that, so stinkin' hard?

It's because I lack the discipline to go forward. I like food.  I like good food.  I love good food.  I don't comfort eat, I just enjoy eating.  And, as we all know, that can get us into big trouble sometimes.

So, I'm walking the plank. Jumping aboard. Getting my rear in gear...whatever you want to say, I'm starting.

No more looking into the mirror and seeing something I am not pleased with.
