I have been doing this now for 12 weeks tomorrow and that is ample time to measure my progress. What works and what does not.
During these twelve weeks I have been breaking old habits and trying to create new one.
My list of BAD habits...
- Full fat ice cream
- Snacking all night every night
- Staying up all hours of the night.
- Drinking my calories..Which included lots of Juices.
- Drank almost NO water.. Maybe one bottle a day.
- Sitting on the sofa all day..(still working on that)
- Eating out 3-4 times per week.
- Lots of fast food.
- No fruit
- Ate a TON of candy..Not chocolate candy but sugar candy. A BIG bag of starburst in 2 evenings. Or a 10 LB bag of Jolly Ranchers in 10 days. Over and Over
- Eating when I was NOT hungry
- Eating out of boredom..(Work in progress)
If I had to choose two of my biggest changes. It would be the candy and the mindless eating all night.
Plus I have to add that I am drinking my water..
When I started this weight loss journey early summer...It was for purely vein reasons. I wanted to be the skinny girl. I wanted for the first time ever to not be the fat friend,sister,daughter and even the fat wife. Though he loves me as I am. He has NEVER seen me under 150.
As the weeks have past..My reasons have changed as well..
I want to be healthy...Healthy for me and healthy for my husband..He has gained a few over the years and I am already noticing a difference in him....YEAH..I want him healthy and to live life with me till we are OLD!!!I want to be proud of accomplishing something I have been attempting for 10 plus years and failing every time or giving up is more like it..
I no longer have a time frame. When I get there I get there. Because no matter if it is 6 months or 2 years. This is not a temporary thing. This is a forever thing.
Every day I learn something new.
I though I knew it all... I have read all the books and tried many "diets"
I never tried what would work for me..
I have learned so much from people around me. People on the blogs. People that I consider my friends.
There is one person that keeps me going more then she would ever imagine..
When I think of making a horrible choice I am not about to lie about it..
This blog is for me foremost and I hope to eventually inspire others..
So if my blogs sometimes seem long..These are my thoughts.
Thoughts that I hope to look back on at 140 pounds and see where I once was..
There are so many bloggers out there that have inspired me..
But that one person was on me about blogging and if not for her I would have never kept doing this and now I am hooked..So thanks Trisha..You are a great friend,confidant and huge support..
So in the next few weeks and month I will be changing up my food choices,where I shop and my exercise and I am so excited..
Once I have my plan in place I will be posting it in detail..
I have also had people asking if I am still planning to do weekly Vlogs???
I am...I had to put it on hold because of sickness and since it will be my first I did not want to be on cam all sickly...
