The Beginning of my Noom Journey


          Going to try and get back into blogging regularly.  I have been doing well blogging on Spark People, so I thought I should get back into it here.  I started a new diet app called Noom, and I sort of feel like I should not be posting about it on Spark.  I know when I type things and then post them, I hold myself more accountable for following through. If I do not, I feel like I am lying, and I hate to lie. Truth is so much more fun.  Anyway, my daughter has become my diet buddy and my son my exercise coach (he makes me walk) LOL.  She and I are following a strict 1200-1500 calorie a day diet, well I am strict, she is more relaxed. I do not say no if she wants an extra snack. I did explain to my kids that I will no longer be cooking full meals. If they want that, then they can make it on own.  Yes, I am being selfish, but they understand.  My knees have been hurting, and if I want to avoid future knee surgeries, I need to get some weight off them.  I also am getting older, and I need to be healthier.  I want to live a long time for my kids. I also want to be able to move more freely.  So, this is just a beginning journey post.

          I will add more about the program if somebody finds this blog. I do not plan on publishing it to Facebook.  I think that will help me be a bit more open.  I can handle strangers reading my words with no care about judgement, as opposed to the people who know me.  I might have to censor a few things LOL per Noom I should be at my goal weight in just a year (woohoo).  I truly am hoping it works.  I have been on it for 3 weeks now. The first two I was so skeptical and figured I wasted my money, but then I decided to really commit and do what they say, and this last week I lost 2 lbs. This is big deal for me, as I have been trying on my own to get scale to move and it has refused to for as long as I can remember. Working this weekend, I have been worried I would slip up and cheat, but I am proud to say I have not 😊 I only have one night left to make it through.  Tomorrow will be refresh day. I plan on using Sundays to ease up a bit by making a meal with my kids, grocery shop, and prep for the week’s diet.  I will add more on everything probably tomorrow or Monday. It depends on how awake I am after work LOL brain tends to barely function on Sundays.

          So please if you find this, and want to follow me in my Noom journey, feel free. I will also start posting about my daughter and my activities here in sunny Florida.  Now that quarantine restrictions are easing up, we are getting out more.
