How do I make myself a priority again?
I am a married mother of two toddlers, 3 and 4 1/2. After my second child was born i worked hard on the LAWL diet with great success. Then my 1yr old daughter went through some major surgeries over the next year and I just quit on myself. I have gained it all back and more. I'm so disappointed in myself...high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I need to get going NOW! But...I love food!!! I love rich, fattening food, and I feel like I eat all the time no matter what I am doing. How did I get going again and take care of myself! I've never had high BP or cholesterol yet here I am now. I want to be healthy for my kids and husband and myself, but I love food and feel like I am addicted to it! Then I feel like it's such a cop out to make that comment!!
Our local LAWL center closed, and maybe that's ok. I need to make a lifestyle change, not just a diet. I need motivation, support, and enough strength to not give into temptation...I'm SO weak! I just put both kids down for naps, and right away I start thinking about what I can eat. Ugh!!
So....any guidance, support, words of wisdom to get more started and keep me going. I will take it! I know I need to do something now and I am ready to! But I also know I can't do it alone.
