I have to admit right now, at the start of this blog, that I have been one of "those people". You know the ones, the ones that think fat girls shouldn't do something. But wait, don't I get offended when people say those things to me or about me? I do. So why do I do it? I guess because it's the normal. I've heard such things so much, they must be true. Right? Wrong.
I'm thinking about cutting my hair. I had it dyed and high lighted before my wedding, but the color is really doing some weird things and I'm just over it. I want a more natural look and I may even want my grays to be allowed to come in. The easiest way to do this is to cut my hair. But, I don't think that fat girls, like myself, should have pixie cuts. And it probably wasn't until I wrote this blog that I realized I am such a hypocrite. I think it's time I, and any other person out there who thinks they're too big to do something, stop thinking like that.
I don't think I want to continue to be a hypocrite, so I'm going to get my hair cut and see about getting it evened out color wise. Now, I just have to wait until we have the money...hopefully in a week or two. :-)

My wedding pictures were probably the biggest motivation for me to get moving again. It was hard seeing myself. I avoid pictures, and normally do even when I feel good about myself. I weighed 265 the day I got married, two months ago. I moved a month later and ended up living with my in-laws for a month. They, and my husband, are snackers. At my apartment, I control the groceries, so my husband doesn't get a lot of unhealthy snacks. And, if he wants them, he gets ones I don't like. That way I don't eat them. My biggest vice is soda. I love Coca-Cola and I know it's bad for me. But, I used to drink at least 3 or 4 a day, now I'm down to 1, maybe 2, if we go out or if I am really craving soda and have some in the house. My weight loss is slower than most people's, simply because I have a lot of medical issues. That being said, I am consistently showing about a 10 pound loss from my wedding and couldn't be prouder of it. It may have taken me 2 months to get there. But, I did it and even when I would mess up with my eating or not working out, I wouldn't let one bad day stop me. I have been consistently trying since my wedding and that 10 pounds shows it.

It can take a few weeks for something to become habit, something we do without thinking.
My goal is to build a habit where I simply move more. So, for every 30 minutes of television I watch, I do 5 minutes of rowing. I moved my rowing machine in front of my tv and have been going strong for just over a week now.
I've lost a decent amount of weight, which I'm counting as a nifty bonus. The purpose is to get to the point where every time I sit down to watch tv, I do a quick workout, so that I'm not sedentary and just wasting time.
Next month I'll probably switch to my stepper instead of a rowing machine, but I will keep this up. I haven't been doing any other exercising at this point, because I do have a really bad back, but next month the goal will be to throw in some HIIT, which I've discovered I love. It's fast paced and by mixing it up, I find my back hurts less.
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!!
