‘I think I can’

none;text-autospace:none">Remember reading “The Little Engine That Could” when you were a child? Remember the Little Engine saying, “I think I can, I think I can?” 

text-autospace:none">I feel a lot like the Little Engine. Exercising is not a problem anymore. I actually enjoy working out and feel guilty if I am unable to fit some exercise into my day. 

text-autospace:none">Eating is the problem. I have said numerous times that I am addicted to food. I think I am doing good eating, but the scale shows differently. 

text-autospace:none">I have been told many times this past week that the numbers don't mean anything; it is how much body fat you have and how many inches you lose. 

text-autospace:none">I think that is complete b.s., but I'm a female and we need to see a low number on that scale to be happy, right? 

text-autospace:none">Losing weight by far is the hardest thing I have had to do so far in my life. Taking on the responsibility of my father's children and becoming a mother overnight was cake compared to this. 

text-autospace:none">From the beginning, I knew it was going to be hard. I just never guessed it would be as hard for me as it has been. My personal trainer, Ken Cutcher, is wonderful and without him, I would have thrown in the towel by now. 

text-autospace:none">Since I have been going to Anytime Fitness, I have become more motivated and a bit more positive in my outlook toward my weight-loss goals. Like I have said before, I take it minute by minute, not day by day.
