The Losing Game

I have now lost 8 pounds since Christmas. How? Diet and exercise. I know, right? It stinks that that is actually the answer. I've been tempted (not really, but kind of, you know) to try a diet aid. But I figured I don't really want to act like a hummingbird on acid... so, I guess the old EAT LESS, and EXERCISE MORE is the way to go.

I feel a lot better about myself, about my clothes and how they fit, and about the example I'm setting for my children. I don't know who said it, but I heard someone say "Stop saying you don't have time to exercise... some of the busiest people in the world find time to do it." Ok, ok, I know you're right, but it's BORING, and I'm TIRED, and, and, and... And you have muffin top, so just DO IT, ok? You'll feel better... and dang it, I do. :)

You rock!! I have only lost about
5, but I guess it's better then nothing! I hate exercising, that isn't going to change. I think you are certainly more active then I am. 3 days a week is the most I can muster up.

Oh I know what you mean about the "I've been tempted (not really, but kind of, you know) to try a diet aid." I see those commercials and am like "hmm, I wonder if it will work" and then I think I just need to get off my butt and A) workout and B)have some self control with portion control. It's an easy equations and yet I never get it right Eat less+physical exertion = weight loss.

Good for you for sticking to it! Keep it up! I'll try to too :)
