Racing with Joy

I wasn't going to walk tonight. Too much homework and my son had a baseball game (late). I managed to walk over a mile and a half and only because I asked Joy to race me. She beat me of course, but at least I got off my butt and moving. Thanks! I am a fat chick. I have been for a long time. Babies, babies, babies..........I will lose weight and gain it back later. I am an emotional eater. I eat just because I am bored. I am trying to fix that. It is hard to get exercise in when life gets in the way. I am in school, work full time, 2 kids at home and a hubby. My son is in baseball. Sometimes it is easier just to get some fast food and run. I am trying this again. This is my weight loss journey.


  1. I feel ya... I also work full time, have school, and am a single parent to a 9 year old. We can do this!

  2. I have always loved to walk. I started walking alone in the mornings in Feb. and then in the evening with Joy when she started her walking program. I lost 17lbs. the first 7 weeks then I hit a wall of not loosing an oz.Frustrating--was I not eating enough for all that walking--ate more--lost 3 more lbs.hit the wall again and nothing more since then--cut out most of the morning walks and only walked with Joy in the evening to see if I was doing to much walking and my body going into starvation mode--still nothing more. Now remember I am 63 so don't expect me to go out and jog or run that is not my thing.

    I have gone into the mode of it's ok to eat a little of the wrong foods it won't hurt a thing since I'm not loosing know what I mean. I'm so afraid I am slipping back into my old eating habits again and the weight will slowly start coming back on even tho I am still walking.
