Well, looks like it's been exactly one year and one week since the last time I blogged, so I'm guessing it's been about that long since I was on here at all. Last time I was on here, I had lost over 25 pounds, and my goal was to lose about 10 more. Unfortunately, that never happened. Instead, life happened: my new job, a busy school year, etc. At some point, I just let myself go, and I think I've gained back almost all the weight I lost, although I really don't know, because I haven't had the courage to weigh myself in a while...what I do know is that none of the clothes that I bought a year ago fit anymore, even the size twelves are starting to feel tight, and I just feel and look heavy :(
Oh well, I know I can do it again, since I've done it before. I know how to do it now. No shortcuts, just gotta eat right and exercise. I'll break out my Wii Fit tonight and weigh myself, see what kind of damage I've done.
I'm hoping I can lose at least some of the weight by the end of August, when I start school again, this time at the University of Texas at Dallas (finally going to finish up my bachelors!). I'll be quitting my job here and picking up and moving to an on campus appartment in Dallas. So this is really my chance to start anew once again, and I'd love to start things off right, looking and feeling great.
I know I can do it. I've done it before, after all!
EDIT: I have weighed myself now, and I am 162.7 lbs. (according to my Wii). So I'm actually still down 10 lbs. from where I started last time. I have made it my goal to get down to 145 by the time the Fall semester starts, which means I need to lose 17.7 lbs. in about 2 months. Really shouldn't be too bad ^_^
