The epiphany

I've been sparked by Lucy's Fat to Fit, the accountability, the commitment. We holidayed last week, but this week I'm back with a vengeance.

I've been trying to lose weight for 20 years.  So, obviously, whatever I've been trying to do hasn't been working, right? My usual Pollyanna, easy-going approach just isn't working. I had an epiphany reading one of Lucy's posts last week - I realised that I carefully balanced and monitored the Tsunamis' food intake, but rarely gave my own even half the consideration. What's that all about? Is the mother of my children not worth the same loving attention?

So this week, I've gone hard core.

It's only day four, but I've been eating like a saint. Fruit, vegies, portion control, water intake, lean meats, incidental exercise... it's all here. And I feel great.

So true, I realised a few months ago my baby was eating all the things I should be eating, fresh fruit, veg, meat, poultry, pulses, and I was existing on things like toast and cereal. Crazy! I use her as motivation now - she's only one, but by the time she is older enough to remember, I want her to see me eating well and exercising. She was my motivation to start running. I want her to have a fit and healthy Mum. I think that's the best way I can be a good role model.

Great post. And an awesome epiphany. Great word, epiphany. Just had to use the spell checker to spell it. But great word none the less.
