I have got to be healthy!  I don't know what has gotten into me, but I have NO control over my eating and appetite!  I know that I am not considered overweight, but trust me, I am getting closer every day!  The problem is, I don't know how to get a hold of it!  I have seriously tried every motivational strategy that I can think of, but it usually fails by lunch time!  I can't help but think that I DESERVE to eat what I want.  I am a mom of three rowdy boys, work full time as a nurse to many unappreciative patients, I don't drink, I don't smoke, etc.  Food is my vice, my comfort,my treat, my social fun, and my anti-boredom recipe.  I have no clue how to remedy my addiction for food. 
Steven and I have recently started doing the T25 workout videos from the makers of P90x.  We love them and it really is a GREAT workout!  It is only 25 minutes long, and has been relatively easy to squeeze in the time to get it done.  I know though, that the videos are not enough, and that I must diet along with them.  Anyways...I really think that the only thing that is going to be strong enough to break my non-dieting cycle is support.  So, please encourage me to do well, and pray that God gives me the strength to get back into gear.  I am slowly creeping up on the scale, and don't want to wake up one day and have 50 pounds to lose.  I want to be healthy for myself, kids, and husband.  Pray that I make it all day eating well!  And if you think about it tomorrow, pray that I do well then, too!  Thanks bunches!
