However, I like trying to stay healthy. And I'd really like my pre-baby body back. After four kids the chances of me getting back to pre-kids shape is slim to none.
But it's not just about being thin. Or thinner than I am not. It is more about eating healthier and making time to exercise. Making those changes will lead to a healthier life. With that I will also (hopefully) be thinner.
The problem is that I am really good with excuses. Like scary really good. For instance I rarely eat a healthy breakfast. The

I started Weight Watchers in October and I have lost 11 pounds so far. Not bad, but not great. I need to do better. I want to do better. I can do better.

I need to be held accountable for making changes. Even if they are small changes, I need to make changes. Weight Watchers currently helps me to be accountable for the food I eat. This will help me to be accountable for the exercise I do, or do not, do each week. Even if no one reads this, or comments here, I will have to sit down and write what I did or did not do each week. Putting it in black and white will hopefully help me to make better choices. It will also help me to keep a New Year resolution I made.
This week I will make one goal. I am starting small. But each week I will add another goal to be added to the previous goals/changes.
Goal #1- do 40 crunches each day.
Remember I said I was starting small.
So leave me a comment if you are making changes too. Or leave me a comment telling me to get my butt in gear and lose this weight once and for all!
