When I taken this picture I was inching to the 300 pound mark. And then I made it to 300...wasn't happy about it, but I didn't do anything either under too much stress. So 4 months went by and I am almost 320. I said this has to stop. So I decided to take a step into losing weight. Being the only one in my house to do this is hard because nobody wants to accomodate for you. So I have to do it myself. So as I am learning to eat right, trying to chose the right foods when we are out and about which is extremely hard and being asked by the kids 15,000 times why are you getting that when they know I am trying to lose weight. Sometimes I give into temptation. Last week was the perfect example, I ate crappy food all week. Anywhere from Steak-N-Shake, to Diary Queen....blizzards ya'll. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Blizzard and Reese Blizzards. So before that I lost 5 pounds and I was down a total of 8.6 pounds and this past week I gained 4 pounds back. Which was shocked it was that less because I didn't eat anything healthy all week. So now, I have to fight even more. Because last week I didn't workout. So now I have to fighter hard not just the eating but the working out too. The new week started Wednesday, I went to workout last night. I did a low light cardio....bike for 15 minutes, I did random hills at an incline of 8 burning 100 calories, I was trying the elliptical but I only survived for 2 minutes, so I got on the treadmill, and decided to myself that I am going to jog.....I jogged for 7 minutes at 2.5 or 2.6 mph and I was excited that I was able to do that. Because I am still in the 300's and my knees are horrible and I could of blown out my knees but I did it that slow for the simple fact that I was thinking about my knees. Now do I want to jog again, yes I do. I am going to do it tonight. I'm excited because I ordered the Cardio Blast DVD because I need variety. So on top of the cardio that I am going to be doing, I am going to be doing those workouts as well. My goal is to get out of the 300 pound range by the end of May, which means....I need to buckle down on my eating and working out more than 30 minutes. I am not going to log the extra into sparkpeople because I am not ready to add more calories into my diet yet until I go grocery shopping.
