Weighing Down

I have gained a significant chunk of weight since I got married 5 years ago. I hate it. I have decided that I need to start eating healthier. I need to be more active, and just make better decisions for myself and my family.

I bought a bike about 2 months ago and I have been riding quite a bit. I aim for 3-5 miles a day 3-4 days a week. I also have a WONDERFUL bike trailer called a GO BUG by trek. This thing is amazing and well worth the cost. I managed to get one on e-bay for $350. The model that I got retails for around $500. Not a bad deal if you want my opinion. It doubles as a jogging stroller and holds 2 kids, and all of their gear. Cailin LOVES to ride her bike. I will take a picture later of her trying it out.

Yesterday I was at a wedding shower for one of Chris's cousins. She looked amazing. She said that she has lost 30 pounds using the south beach diet. She likes it because it isn't as restrictive as a lot of other diets. It teaches moderation, and a healthy lifestyle. I think i might give it a try. One of the biggest challenges that I have though is cooking something that is healthy for us, that chris will actually eat. He is the pickiest eater i have ever met!!! He doesn't like veggies. He wont eat tri-colored pasta because the red and green ones have spinach and tomato in them. YOU CAN"T EVEN TASTE IT!!!! He isn't big on trying new things. This will be a challenge.

I am starting at 180. I will keep posted on what I am doing and trying.

good luck on ur weight loss. I can tell u its a long hard road. The only thing that I have found that works for me is calorie counting and portion control. It has been 6 months now and I have lost 21 pounds. Im averaging about 1 to 2 pounds a week with a little gain every now and then. They say its better to lose it slow.
Im anxious to hear how this south beach diet works for u.
Im a supporter...Ill cheer u on!
