I'm down 7 lbs!

Monday, August 09, 2010

Oh yeah!

I didn't have a scale when I started and hadn't weighed myself in a while so my starting weight was possibly off - but if anything I think I put in slightly lower than what I had actually weighed the last time I saw a number on a scale. Because I was not feeling good about that number. But as of today I've lost 7 lbs total!

Wow. That's like - Wow. I feel like such a dumb@ss. Like all these years I've been struggling and struggling, and it's really so simple. And I'm not depriving myself, I'm just making better choices. Like only eating 1/2 a snack bag of chips so that I can have some soft-serve ice cream for dessert. Eating less during the day if I'm going to go out with friends and indulge. And it's really working!

Now exercise. I've never, ever been a fan of exercise. I've never been good at sports, I never much liked them, I had asthma as a kid so I had a difficult time with many things (and I still have asthma, it's just not as bad). I like to dance. I enjoy that as an exercise. But the dance studio prices are insane! Like $40/mth for 3 classes, or over $100 for "unlimited". I do have a membership at a nearby 24-Hour Fitness, I may need to start going to some classes there. Heck, I pay for the membership, I should probably go.

Feeling good today!
