I am sitting here thinking about 281 and focusing on 181. I am asking myself what makes this time different.I have tried many times before to lose weight only to fail and gain more weight that is how I got to 281. My turning point came and I had, had enough, I knew that it was taking a toll on my body and I was no where near the girl I used to be. I felt uncomfortable, and just unattractive although I pretended to be okay. I am so glad that the scale is moving in my favor and I can't wait to make my goal, but the question still remains, what makes this time different??? I will tell you, I have been working out since July 06, and now I can't go without exercise, if I do, I feel so unproductive that it is like a missing part of me. It is a stress reliever, it makes me feel good to know that I am taking care of my body, it has taken away the rusty bones (seems like arthritis) hurting feet, indigestion, constant headaches. I was thinking to myself wow I can get out of the bed and not feel like my body stiffened up during the night anymore, that was because of my weight. Its funny how I notice the little things.

Okay, I finally bought some new workout clothes because the ones I had, I have been working out in when I was 281, LOL, they are so saggy that it is a shame, I went home for spring break and I know that if I had put those pants on to work out in, my mom and best friend would have died on the spot laughing, I am going to step up my game and go to the gym looking nice for now on. My pants were sagging in the booty, the shirt was too big, I was wearing a size 22/24 when I need a 16/18 now. Its crazy. I probably looked like a ragamuffin. I probably could have gotten a makeover, its a surprise they didn't call 911 on me.

Here I am going onto another goal,
Goal #1 is to be 235 on April 30th that is my pre pregnancy weight!!! and goal #2 is to get down to 229 by Memorial day. I am going to go write up my plan for the week and take care of all of this. I really want to reach these goals, and I am going to continue working on these plans daily. I am so motivated because I am losing the weight and keeping it off. I feel so good. I look at the pictures and see the differences in my body. My self esteem is rising and I am building confidence, I can look people in the face once again, and I am kind of coming out of my shell. Plus it feels good to hear people say, "Did you lose some weight?" and then I can say, "Yes."

I am writing down my goals for April in my journal to help me keep track and reflect on them, I have provided myself with a paper copy as well.
Exercise: 6x's a week 60 minutes cardio; 3x's a week Strength 20mins
Food: Stay within calorie range, eat healthy foods that will fill me up and not take so many calories away.
Vitamins: Remember to take it daily.
Water: Drink 10 glasses daily, the hot weather is going to make it easier and I will need more water with the weather causing me to sweat more.
I am aiming for a 9lbs loss this month. This will help me reach my goal of 235 for April 30th. So we will see.
