I need to hold myself accountable...hopefully this blog will help!
Soooo...none of my clothes fit, and I have only myself to blame. (Ok, granted the medication I'm taking DOES say it can cause weight gain, but I'd say 90% of my weight gain falls on me.)
I have gained 40 pounds since summer of 2011..Yes, really.... FORTY POUNDS! (Twenty in the last few months) I am LOVING my boobs (TMI? Sorry, but as someone who was not blessed in that area....I am loving having Big-ish boobs...) I just wish I could lose some of the rest of the fat and keep my new girls!
Most of my weight went to my butt, hips, thighs...though I can see it elsewhere as well. Most people have no idea I weigh as much as I do. I am blessed to carry excess weight very well.
But, I am uncomfortable. I have to SQUEEZE into all of the clothes that still fit me, while the rest I can't even begin to don.
I stopped exercising. I couldn't afford my gym membership and have no motivation to work out at home. In all honesty, I am just lazy. Yes, I have health issues that make exercise uncomfortable (ever exercised with a migraine? I have one nearly every day...) but that hadn't stopped me in the past.
Aside from that, I also tacked on a daily diet of about 3,000+ calories. I've always had a major sweet tooth, but it seems to have gotten out of control, again.
I can't afford to buy another whole wardrobe (did that last year...) so I NEED to start toning up and losing a bit of fat. I don't need to lose much.... I looked skeletal at 120 lbs (5'8") I'm aiming for around 140. Come on, Me!
