Realization

I had a realization last night.

I know right?? That is HUGE lol.

I realized that I am gaining weight because I no longer look at myself in the mirror.

I avoid them like the plague. I know if I look I will hate what I see. So guess what?? All day today I forced myself to look at me...me for who I am. :)

It wasn't SO bad...it is fixable...just will take some hard work and sweat.

I think I am FINALLY ready to take that step to living healthier for "me" and being more selfish when it comes to myself.

Healthy is great and it is even better when you are doing it for yourself. But, I do have to say, I thought you looked very pretty today when you came over!!!!

You can do it!! It is hard to be "healthy". I fall into the drive thru trap.... It is killing me and my kiddos. I swear McD's is addicting! As of Tuesday, (I am out of town until then...) We will be fast food free (except for Subway)Have you ever looked in the mirror and were surprised what you really look like? I am ALL the time. I look much different in my head! :0

Thanks Mary...you are so sweet :) Staci...I completely understand! I will sometimes think I look good and then after like an hour I look again and GAG I look like shit! Fast food is an easy trap. My sweet teas are my trap. But i have been better. I am pulling myself away. I love the subway down by the VA...omg their bread is the best!!

Staci said...

No kidding!!! Their bread is good! If subway had a drive thru I would be in HEAVEN!!!! Maybe I will invent that hmmmm.... :)

There would be a lot more skinny moms! I would TOTALLY go to Subway over McDonalds if they had a drivethru!! We need to PUSH that one!!

I love Subway and agree that they should have a drive-thru. I am also trying to loose weight. Just started three days ago. Not really a diet--just trying to eat healthier and smaller portions. At some point, I know that exercise will need to be incorporated (shoot me now). You're beautiful Lisha! Good luck! :)

Like everyone said, you ARE beautiful, Lisha!!! I'm right there with you right now! I thought I couldn't start this change right now with the holidays coming but to be honest... it couldn't be a better time for me. It is so easy to slip into the "image" of you because we are so bombarded by all this "skinniness" around us! Let me know if you want to chat and vent on the tough days! When I get tired, I feel the slippin' coming!

Lisha said...

Good for you Sara :) Now you need to start your blog so we can praise you on your successes :) heheheh....PEER PRESSURE!!

Thank you Hilary. I do need to talk lol I will send you an email :)

I need to lose about 20 lbs and I'll be happy. I have parts of me that jiggle and I can't stand it!! My thing is that if I go somewhere and do something with myself, I'll think I look somewhat decent and then if someone takes a pic of me, I'm like "What the hell was I thinking before I left?!?!" Like the pics from our moms night out. I thought I looked ok but once I saw those pics, I was like, oy vay.......... The treadmill is calling my name.....
