I have decided to make a post about my journey through my weight lost. I have already lost 13 pounds and counting. I do not weight myself every day, as I believe that really doesn’t help. Your body is going to go up and down in weight. You are never the same in the morning, as you are at night. So, you can’t expect your pounds to be the same day by day. You will have good days, and bad days. Never let your “weight” upset you, if you are happy in the results you are getting, and how you are feeling, and then go with it! You are the only one to make yourself happy, and don’t count on the small things to bring you down.
Any who, I am 25 years old, 5’3 is my height, and I am 178 lbs (as of May 2nd). I will post pictures, maybe once a month, or the days I go to the Dr. I am not sure yet, if you have ideas, please let me know.
I believe that friends will motivate you, and also that it comes within. If you don’t want to do something you will find 13 million excuses not to, than someone who likes doing it and wants it to be done. Self discipline is a must. If you cheat and drink a coke, then you need to burn off those extra calories.
I am not on a strict diet either. I watch what I eat with proportions, and eat 1 sweet before 6:00 pm, if I want a sweet that day. I, however, have cut out my sodas, pop, or coke, whichever word you use 😀 I have become a fan of flavored water, the little packs you can peel and pour into your 20 oz water bottle. If I work outside in the yard for more than an hour or 2 then I will not exercise in the house. Working outside is hot enough for me, and I am totally exhausted by the time I get back in the house. Sometimes, I am outside for 4-6 hours at a time, just depends on the temperature or shade. I do take a diet pill but on June 3rd I will no longer be taking it. I will be off of it for 3 months. If I gain weight in 3 months I will not be able to get the diet pill back until I lose the weight I gained. So, now you know what I do and I hope I can keep you motivated and try to keep myself motivated. I will post daily, or try to about what I eat or what I do for exercise that day. (Lisa, you better remind me, and vice versa, pinch Kayla into doing this with us) I will update this with a recent picture of me, as soon as I find my camera charger (Bah!!! Don’t know where Hubby put it)
If I exercise inside, it is on the Wii (Just Dance 2) or the elliptical. I will post either, how many songs I do, and how long with the Just Dance 2 and with the elliptical I will post how many calories I burn, and how many minutes I done it. I love doing the Just Dance 2, its fun and you can sing along. If you have kids they can do it with you 😀 (Even though Jade likes crawling around my legs and I step on her on accident sometimes)
