Call Me a Quitter

Yes, I meant quitter even though that is the commonly typo'ed word for quilter.

Today I quit soda, Starbuck's and junk food. I've done this before and, in combination with running, lost 20 lbs. Well, now I have 30lbs to lose, so the job will be a bit harder, but it all starts with just saying NO.

Cody and I took our first 40 minute walk this morning, with a little bit of running on the side. At the end he was panting heavily and I was sweating, so I know we worked it!

I am fiercely determined when I want to be, and I want to be back to my slim, healthy self. So, in the immortal words of Nike, I'm going to:

Just Do It.

I'm not sure if I am the proper person to give advice, but I find it easier for myself if Iinstead of depriving myself, I add something to the diet. So I'm drinking water instead of soda. I'm eating vegetables instead of junk food. It makes me feel less deprived, and gives me a plan for what I'm doing instead. I also put the exercise in the daily schedule.

Good luck on your quest to lose 30 pounds. I've let myself go so badly that now I need to lose 60. Gosh, I weigh 30 pounds more than I did when I was nine months pregnant!
