I love food, who doesn’t?

I have been fighting my weight for quite a while now, and most of the time I feel like I am fighting a losing battle.Why even try to eat healthy when there are temptations all around me? Why walk several miles, when I’m not even touching the calories I need to sweat off to lose just one pound?

It started after I had kids, then carried over in force when I started teaching. The workload and stresses that come with the job, had me eating more and more. And I eventually gaining more than 40 lbs

Weight loss after 40, is no joke! This body has shut down the calorie burning factory.

My husband and I were walking the other day and he and I were out of breath. He looked at me and I at him. He held my gaze and said the most wonderful words anyone could say. “Hey, we have Chik-fil-a in the house, let’s go eat!” I mean really? Let’s goes eat? 

I sucked down those waffle fries like nobody’s business and didn’t even let the dogs stares keep me from savoring every last yummy bite.

With all joking aside, I really am having a hard time managing what I eat. No one understands unless you have been in this position. It has been so long since I have eaten correct portions, that I do not know how anymore. I am lost in Pinterest – should I meal prep, or should I try this weight watchers meal, how about Paleo, goodness I can not afford that, or Whole 30, what about that 21 day fix thing???? Then I remember, yeah  I am that poor teacher and can not afford to make two meals at once and I have picky eaters in the house.

Ugh! I am about to go buy a whole pack of snickers and feel good because it has peanuts! PEANUTS, that is protein,  Right? So how much of that should I gobble down as I drive pass McDonald’s?

Please, just pray for me. I am walking a mile everyday, weather permitting and just joined Planet Fitness. Hopefully, someone will feel sorry for me and decide to take me on and train me.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 NIV

19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;
20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.
