Fat be gone Friday:::Robyn's weigh in

It is officially summer in AZ!!!!!!

This last week we purchased season passes for the kids and I to a water park. That means I am baring my soul, (okay, not my soul, but it feels like it) in a very public place. I put on a happy face, found my inner confidence and had a great time with my kiddos. They don’t know to be embarrassed of me. They still hold my hand in public while I’m wearing a swim suit. J I rode water slides. It was fun. It made me feel young. I was happy to be under the weight limits and to have fun with my kiddos. Summertime is Phoenix is a motivating place to be swim suit ready.

Because we have been going out of town so much I have been struggling with my food choices. I’m trying to get myself back into a good routine. I had been tempted to do something sort of drastic for a little bit to get some weight off quickly. But, I decided that wasn’t really how I wanted to reach my goals.

Hope and I chatted on the phone the other night. I am so thankful to have her as a support in my journey. As we chatted I was able to realize for myself how important it is to me to do this the right way. I do not want to take any pills or shots, no weight loss surgeries, no fad diets, and no extreme programs. I believe in moderation. I believe in healthy living. I believe in eating less and moving more. This isn’t a diet. This is a healthy lifestyle. Slow and steady wins the race. I think for me, slow and steady is more manageable, I’m living a way I can continue for the rest of my life, and I feel that it’s healthier for me both physically and mentally. Let’s face it the mental part of this journey plays a large part in my success.

This week I lost 2 lbs. It’s the 2 lbs that I had gained back last week. So, I’m back to 25 lbs down. I am motivated to make good choices though and excited to continue the journey.
