The Lucky '13: I Feel 45 Pounds Lighter
Friday, January 04, 2013
I feel 45 pounds lighter. That's because I am. That's what I focus on, not the 10-15 I gained over holidays. I started January 2012 as 330 pounds, and now I'm 285.
I have obstacles now with losing, one being my days are being used up by my job. My off days are being used up by taking someone to the grocery store and retail also wears me out. My meal breaks I could bring my lunch, however the break room is disgusting. But the food court is both costly and fattening. I know the calories of the food I eat there though. The Christmas/New Year meals are what set us back.
I also don't get in enough water throughout the day. If I drink what I usually drink during the day I'd have to pee every half hour. I might get in 6 cups if I'm lucky (that doesn't sound like me at all). We can only have a plastic water bottle at the register, mine holds 20oz. At least 6 hours of my day is at work.
Christmas shopping is over, so our hours went down from 6am-midnight to 10am to 9pm. The new news is, I'm keeping the job after holidays so I'm staying. I have to set up a plan that works for my schedule... whatever schedule my boss decides for me that week. As of now I need to focus on more water, counting calories better, and 10 minutes of fitness a day before work.
Lucky 13? It'll be more than luck if I lose any weight, but if I'm even 20 pounds lighter by the end of the year, it's a success.
