8 lbs and the Scale

Thursday, February 09, 2012

I found myself tempted to weigh in earlier today at the Y before I started exercising. I was afraid to do it because I feared that I had gained weight since I last weighed in during the Summer of 2011.

I was right. The giant and rather gorgeous scale's marker quivered over 258. Barely. I am happy that it didn't say something like 265 lbs. Knowing that I am still in the ballpark of 250s makes me feel better.

Now to lose 8lbs - 10lbs before March 5th. That is the next time I intend to weigh in.


A New Beginning

Tuesday, February 07, 2012

I believe this is my first blog entry here on SparkPeople.

My goal is to lose 100 lbs in a year. I am 26 and about to be 27 in March.

The last time I weighed myself was in August 2011 and I was 256 lbs.

I am a bit phobic about weighing in again because I fear I may have gained more weight since then. It is no matter because as of Monday I have started my new workout and healthy eating regimen.

I have plotted out a schedule of exercise for a month out to workout twice a day, before work and after work. The workout in the morning is freeform at the Y while the evening workouts are classes that I am taking at the Y.

I have discovered that the group for 20-somethings who wish to lose 100 lbs does not have a leader and I am considering becoming leader and sharing my journey and setting goals for everyone as a team. It would be nice to have and give moral support to others.

I think that is all I have to say for now. I do not know if I will be posting pictures of myself and my progress but we will see.

In my life I am hoping for changes in other ways as well. Hoping to get a new job and to get on the fast track to what will make me happy and comfortable (no worrying about money etc).

Yay! Thanks for reading. :-)
