Resolution Update!

I have officially lost my first 5 pounds! Woo hoo! I hate to say I cheated a little this week but I've decided not to anymore. (well don't hold me to this) I watched this show the other day about this man who weighed 1023 pounds and he couldn't get out of his bed. It made me so sad and so sick to my stomach to see someone destroy themselves, actually to see someones family bring him 30,000 calories worth of food a day.. So after watching this show, no more fast food and no more junk. 

Speaking of junk......
I dream of food. I dream of thanksgiving stuffing, pies, cakes, chocolate, french fries, cheese burgers, burrito supremes.... well you get the idea. When I get these cravings I drink some oh so  filling water and eat a fruit cup. 

side note* I bet I would lose more weight if I would go outside and walk or even better run. I haven't ran since my sophomore year in HIGH SCHOOL. I guess I will stick to walking. I'm thinking about joining this women's running clinic this Feb., I'm not sure though. The only thing that is holding me back from walking now is the weather. I hate to be cold!!

So, now my goal is to lose the next set of FIVE POUNDS! WIsh me Luck!

Congratulations on the first 5! I don't blame you about walking in the cold. I can't wait for it to warm up so I can get outside!

*p.s. - I don't run unless I'm being chased!

That so great Mary! Congrats! And good luck on the next 5! At least it will be getting warmer soon. Today is goregous. I even walked Romeo today before work. I hate walking in the cold but today was perfect.

That is great Mary! Next time we go eat we should go to Panera or Subway- that way we won't be so tempted!!
