A new Beginning

Monday, January 09, 2012

I find it strange how every January I feel like I need to make the same resolution. I suppose if I could just manage to stick with it I could start thinking of new resolutions to make. I have spent the past year and a half having my weight fluctuate from a healthy 155 all the way up to my current weight of 176.

I had grand plans for this year. My youngest DD started full day kindergarten this past Fall and I was supposed to take the opportunity to start going to the gym 5 days a week again. Needless to say that never happened. I did find 3 classes that I really do like and I attended them on and off for the past six months. Unfortunately that is not enough for me to see any changes. So now I am back to square one.

At least one positive thing happened last Fall. My DH, who has had the same gym membership as me for the past 7 years, finally decided to use it. He is now going to the gym more frequently than I am and he has since actually gained like 50lbs in muscle weight. He is a tall guy so that's not a huge deal. He has been going with some guys from his work and they are now moving into the weight loss portion of their routine. I am hoping that we will start to see some slimming down of his mid-section now. We also went out last night and spend almost $200 on healthy foods and snacks.

Now I know what I should and shouldn't be eating. I even realize that I am conscious of when I am hungry and when I am not. Food no longer holds me prisoner. However there are times that despite all of that I just don't care. Now that my husband is going to the gym, you would think that I would be even more motivated to do so as well, but it has had the opposite effect on me and I can't figure out why.

So I guess at this point I am going to make my same old resolution. I will lose weight this year! But I am also going to make a new one. I will stick with eating healthy and exercising and I will maintain a healthy weight. Maybe if I can follow through with these then next year I can resolve to do something else.
