Day two, so far so good.
Monday, January 04, 2010
So like I said, this is my first time actually dieting... my husband & I did the cabbage soup diet the week before Christmas, and that was really encouraging. My jeans were fitting better & my face was looking a lot thinner, but by the day after Christmas I felt bloated & disgusting. I don't consider the diet a waste because it was a learning experience, but talk about discouraging! I've just never needed to diet before, because I've always had a good metabolism, and most the time I was working so I was very active. BUT, now that I have a baby, I can't just go out & get a job.. I hate the idea of daycare. I'm content staying home, I just wish I felt safer taking a walk with Betty by ourselves. That scares me, so I like to go with my husband. But even then I just don't see the point, because I don't think walking is an exercise... I just hope I can stick with this thing. We don't own a scale, so I can't be weighing myself everyday, which is good. I'll only be able to weigh myself every few weeks, so that will be great. Who knows, I could lose more than I want to! That would be so exciting. Day two has been great. I've had roughly 1400 calories today, and worked out for about 35 minutes. It was SO hard! I used to work out every day till I got pregnant, so yeah. I haven't really worked out like that in almost a year & a half. Talk about being weak & shaky! I'm very hopeful that I'll stick to exercising. I hope my husband does too. Poor thing gained more than I did during my pregnancy, but didn't get the benefits of nursing to lose any of the weight. :( I feel so bad. Okay. This is very long, I'm done. :)
