What I've learned this week...

Last Wednesday night I made a decision to change my life, and I can honestly say that I am on my way!  I've been eating right and exercising for 7 days!  I know that doesn't sound like too many, but for me, this is HUGE!  I have never stuck with something for this long and felt good about it.  I've always felt deprived or more depressed and quit within a few days.  Something is different this time, something has changed, and I am so happy and thankful! my list...what I've learned this week...

1.  This chubby girl needs some good exercise capri's for my daily walk...ouchie...need to order some soon, any recommendations?
2.  There is an all-over-my-body-tingly feeling after my walk...and I like it. :)
3.  I can create/make good choices, even if there are no good choices available.
4.  I CAN live without coffee (hip-hip-hooray!)
5.  I CAN live without ice cream every day!
6.  I feel so much better being tired after a day of being healthy than being tired after a day of hurting myself with food.
7.  I have the best, most amazing cheerleaders...Kris has been such an encouragement to me, and my Lord...oh...He is just the best!  So thankful for Kris, and so very, very thankful for my Jesus!

Oh, and one more thing...I have lost 9.5 pounds!  Yay!
