Make it happen

I saw this and it is something I have heard many times before...

Have you ever over heard someone say this very thing, or even said it your self before?

I know I have!

I think now that I have lost weight I am noticing things more lately. My husband I stopped at Wendy's yesterday to grab a bite to eat for lunch after we meet with our travel agent. I really did not want to go, I will be honest.. It still takes a concious effort to order the "right" thing! My mind is trained to say when I get up to order my meal make that a large..fries and pop! It just makes me sick what I have done to myself the last few years!!

I am going to have an honest moment hear with all of you..

As I am sitting there in the restaurant I can't help but glance around at the others enjoying their food( and look at what they are eating )The food they are eating literally makes my stomach turn:(

I guess this could be looked at as a huge turning point for me...

But trust me one moment of weakness and I could be the one with the "SUPERSIZED MEAL"!!!

I try to listen to people when they tell me they want to lose weight, but like this picture you have to STOP eating junk and start at some point. I wish I wouldn't have waited this long to get off my butt and make it happen!

I wouldn't trade how I feel now for anything:)


  1. I know.. I've been there! And I am still in the risk of turning back if I lose focus. I have a friend that complains constantly about my progress, and how much she wants to lose weight.... while eating everything and anything!

  2. I have always made it a point to keep my mouth shut about my weight. I truly believe in that picture and know it's all about what your doing and not saying. I have this because of someone else. One of my friends mothers was like that. 2 months after she had a DOUBLE knee replacement, she sat on the couch saying that she didn't know why she couldn't lose the weight. In one had was a gallon of ice cream and next to her a bag of chips. Really? You don't know. Same woman got gastric bypass 4 years ago, made it to 120, then stretched out her stomach so much she now weights 340 again. I make it a point to learn from those around me.
