A good first day of tracking!

Thursday, October 21, 2010

I did it! I had a great first REAL day of tracking... I stayed within my calories! It is amazing how well i can do when I am thinking about what I am putting in my mouth before I do it. I also drank all of my water and walked 20 mins! I cant believe how great it felt! I also cleaned my house and made dinner and measured out what I can eat. So it was a productive day for me.

Today I am studying math all day to try to catch up and for an exam I have tonight. I am going to do the best I can to not snack while I do it and keep up on my calorie count. I am drinking water all day to try to help with some of the cravings and stress of studying. Wish me luck for today!

My first Blog Ever

Wednesday, October 20, 2010

So this is the first blog that I have ever done. I was reading about what a blog can do to help me and thought "ok I will give it a try" I went to the doctor the day before yesterday... Neither of us were happy with what we saw... I was not the 210 lbs that my scale said, nope! I am 217 lbs! WOW! I have not been that heavy in years! My doctor checked my blood sugar, that was good. Were waiting on my thyroid test to come back but I am sure that is fine. So what is my problem?

I am in my 2nd year of college and I gained more then the freshman 15. I have gained about 25lbs in the last year! Sitting, studying and eating does not do my body well! So now I need to fit exersize in with it some where. uggg... I can barley walk up my stairs without breathing heavy, none of my clothes fit, and I feel horribale about the way I look! BUT for some reason I cannot find it in myself to fix it! What needs to happen for me to realize I am not healthy? I still eat foods that are... well lets say less then healthy and I do not exersize unless its walking from class to my car.

My assignment today is to figure out what is important to me live healthy or live misserable. I need to also pro and con staying the way I am. I need to realize my grandmother died at 55 of heart failure and diebetes. OK Margo... HERE WE GO!

  Do something, everyday. Look at it like brushing your teeth, just something that has to be done. emoticon

  You just have to want to be healthy & fit more than the alternative, but you CAN do it!!! I started at 218 and am now down to 138. It took me a couple of years to be honest but I knocked off the last 28 this summer. If I can do it, you can too. And I'm 54 years old! Good Luck sweetie! emoticon
