weekly weigh in

London Zoo Weigh In Day!
My week went well!
Here are my stats:
sw: 152
cw: 145.8
gw: 136
Last week I weighed 147.8 so that is a 2 lb loss!

My new habit of getting up at 6am is working out wonderfully! I don't even think about it or try to negotiate it in my head- I JUST DO IT!  I think the logic from my last post has helped so much.

While sitting in class I realized I'm a healthy fit person!  I just never have given myself the credit. What I have to point out though is that it did not happen overnight. When I think back I did make small changes here and there. For instance, I use to be hooked on diet coke, then there was a phase of tortilla chips! I use to eat them with every meal.  Oreo cookies are my weakness even  still.   And I didn't just one day wake up and cut all of this out of my was baby steps and look where I am now, I don't eat any processed foods, no cereal, no protein bars, no t.v dinners.  It is all natural.

If you are unhappy with your life then do something about it! If you are unhappy with your weight then do something about it!
Take responsibility!   I am constantly surrounded by people who are not living the lives they want but will not take initiative to change, they want to blame other people.   If you don't like your career, your living situation, your relationship, your weight then CHANGE!   I don't understand why everyone tip toes around this situation.  People are always giving advice on going to college, where you should live, where to invest money, who you should marry ..even how to be a parent! but no one would ever dare tell an overweight person to lose weight!  Isn't this crazy? Why do we give them excuses?
Whenever the issue of obesity comes up it is always followed by excuses like depression, medical issues, it;s hereditary...well don't you think those are reasons to take control of  your weight? But people use those reasons to justify why they are overweight!
I have to leave you with this post from  THE HOUSE OF SMITHS  Most of you are aware of this blog. She is very talented and so cute,  her blog is about making improvement in her family and home and recently she even started blogging about her weight!  I hope it can inspire you.

Get a Hobby!

Hobbies help you improve your mental health and well being because  you're engaging the creative network in your brain, you are challenging you mind and keeping it sharp. Its also a stress reduction. When you concentrate on your hobby it is clearing your mind of other distractions. It makes you happy! It makes you interesting! If you are married its important to have other things, separate things that make you happy.  Don't rely on your spouse to make you happy. You both need to find happiness in the things that you enjoy and since happiness is contagious it will rub off on your spouse. You also need to give your spouse space so they can enjoy things they love to do, its important to keep your identity in a marriage! You can still "find yourself" while being married. (I've been married over 20 years) You don't need to rely on people to make you happy! People will let you down, they have there own obligations they have to tend to so if you a

Your First Sewing Machine!

2020 has been a great year for sewing machine sales! Joanne's can't seem to keep them in stock. People making masks as well as others picking up new hobbies due to quarantine and with Christmas around the corner this might even be on your list! So are you looking to buy a sewing machine? If you are in the market for a new Sewing machine you might be a bit perplexed with all the different features. In fact sewing machines range from $100 up to..well there are some in the $12,000 range! So I'm going to keep it simple and share 3 key features to look for in your sewing machine investment. 1. Needle up/down feature : This means when you are sewing a project and you stop you can indicate that you want the needle down into the project so your fabric stays in place when you need to pivot or make adjustments to the fabric. 2. Automatic needle threader : this saves time (and frustration) by threading the needle for you. 3. Needle position right to left: This allows you to stitch
