All It Takes

1. Actually use your food journal & track your calories!

2. Actually drink lots of water!

3. Actually move your butt!


That really is all it takes to be successful at weight loss. So simple, yet so hard to do!

Last night I skipped my workout because I was too busy playing on the newly fixed computer! (The PC has been dead for a while, but it is back up again! Yea!)

I should have said, "Jess - You cannot play on the computer until you have done at least 30 mintues of cardio."

Bribery works so well for me.

Even after all these years, and all these pounds lost, I still **HATE** working out! I absolutely hate it. When I am actually doing it, it is not so bad. Afterwards, I get that good "I just worked out!" feeling. But I dread it, I avoid it... so I need to bribe myself into being healthy. ;)

I am just not the kind of bouncy person that is like, "Yeah! Let's get physical!"

Aaron suggested that If I can workout 3 times a week and stick with it for 4 weeks, I'll get a reward. I am thinking new clothes!

I'll try to post more often to see if I am successfully making it through these weeks. ;)

Cheers,

Jess

I'll be watching! :)

I have this weird new mindset where I feel deprived if I don't get to take the dog to the park and walk. What's THAT about? Me? LOL

I just found your blog and let me say... you are an inspiration! I'm going to link your blog in the "blogs I visit" section of my blog, if you don't mind. Reading your story has given me a renewed excitement about my weight loss goals. Thanks!

Thank you for your blog! I've been reading it for about 2 years, and you're such an inspiration!! I've recently gotten married and had a baby, so I'm ready to get on track to losing weight! I was going great before I started dating my husband, but our dating life consisted of eating out and going to movies. I stopped working out and it seemed like the weight just creeped up on me! Anyways, I only gained 20 lbs. with my pregnancy and easily lost that. Now I'm just trying to lose my "marriage" weight. Thank you for your updates and tips on losing weight!
