From as far back as I can remember I have been overweight and have attempted one diet after another to try to become that skinny girl I always dreamed of being. I'm starting this blog in hopes of using this as my motivational tool to finally change my lifestyle and get healthy. Feel free to cheer me on, give me advice or criticize me if need be. I'm way tougher on myself than anyone else can be on me.
Well I had a big surprise this morning. I got up early to get ready to go to the Apple Festival in our town and after I took a shower and dried my hair I decided to just step on the scale to see how I was doing, even though I just weighed yesterday. To my surprise I had dropped 2 lbs since yesterday, from 237 lbs to 235 lbs. I think changing up my food alittle has really shocked my body into letting go of the weight. I'm just hoping that by my official weigh in day, which is Tuesday, that my weight is still down because if it is I will have dropped 2.4 lbs this week. Woooooohooooooooo.
I need suggestions. Last week I came up with a challenge for myself, to walk 160 miles by New Years. Well I'm doing really good, I've already walked 12 miles of that in the last week and a half. As a reward for accomplishing my challenge I was going to buy a pair of Skecher Shape Ups. Well after I went to the Apple Festival I went shopping with my mom and guess what, I bought my Shape Ups. I just couldn't resist so now I have to come up with a new reward. Any suggestions? I'm thinking maybe a new piece of photography equipment but I would appreciate any ideas you have. I will eliminate a few things, I don't get manicures, pedicures or massages so those things are out. I feel kind of guilty about getting the Shape Ups when I was suppose to have completed my challenge first but I just couldn't resist the price and they are so cute. I walked in them tonight and its definitely going to take some getting use to. When I first put them on I felt like I was off balance because the bottoms aren't firm they are like a cushion which I guess is whats suppose to make them work your legs and butt out. I could feel a difference walking in them, especially going up hills. Lets hope they help firm up my legs and they make my butt firm enough to bounce a quarter off of....lol.
Here is the pair I got I just love pink.
Well I guess thats all for tonight. I hope everyone is eating right and working out hard we are all going to ring in the New Year alot healthier and this will be one year where we don't have to make a weight loss resolution because we have already started our journeys. Good luck to all of you and have a great night.
