So I have officially lost 15 pounds and am....
At this point I am just trying to be consistant and lose the stress. The stress situation is thankfully lessening with the help of a new job with immense support for my journey. My bestie has finally gotten me to go to work at the same facility as her. No small task, she's been trying for almost a year now. But there, I will make more money (easing the stress about paying bills hopefully), way better insurance than anyone can ask for right now, and the support of several friends that I went to school with and know.
I know that consistancy is the best thing to change any lifestyle habit and to lose weight. So at the moment I am trying to get ready for my first 5k. The thing is I'll just be thrilled, ecstatic, and PROUD of myself just for walking and FINISHING the thing. No one knows just how important just walking it will be, considering 10 years ago they thought I may never be able to do this (broken hip from a car wreck). My eventual goal is to actually run a 5k, but for now I will settle for just walking it.
I have taken to walking 2 miles around my neighborhood, which has a lot of hills, so that is helpful. This is due to the fact that the 5K is on open road and not flat and smooth like my living room floor. There I can walk 4 miles with huffing and puffing and only a little cursing at, forgive me for saying this, Leslie Sansone's DVDs. I mean no disrespect to her, I love her and her DVDs. It is me having issues with too many years being inactive and just gives me a vent.
So to sum up this little jumble of rambling, be consistant and it will come off. Maybe not as fast as you think it should, but it will come off. Sorry!!!
is what I need.
