Well I got my new scale on Sunday night and weighed in at 247.2 lbs and all but 50% bodyfat, YUCK! My suspicions were true. I had gained about 10 lbs since I last weighed myself. This is the heaviest I have ever been and I don't like it one bit.
My fiance is 269lbs. I am trying to cook meals that are not only healthier for me but my whole family as well. My oldest was chubby from about 8 years old till he was 13. He finally hit a growth spurt and he went from a little boy to a young man in like 6 months. Hoping he is able to stay at a healthy weight now. My 11 and 6 y/o sons are pretty active and seem to burn off any extra they have. My 3 year old daughter likes her fruits and veggies but she also likes her snacks. She is one that I am watching out for as well. Hoping that over the next year I am able to show them all how eating better does your body good.
My hubby to be....he makes it hard sometimes to stay on track. Evenings I notice are harder for me because everyone else just grabs what ever they want without thinking about it and I'm thinking about how many calories am I gonna be eating if I eat this or that. I have not had any soda other than a few swigs here and there. Yesterday I took a swig of my fiance's Pepsi and that was all I had all day. I have been drinking nothing but water. I have used crystal light occasionally just for some flavor.
Week one almost down....doing it again all of week two....might be more of a challenge. I try not to deprive myself of foods, but I know some are just not what I should be eating and it is hard to say no. I keep reminding myself that one way or another I am getting married this year. I don't want to fail myself later, knowing if I had just done the hard work I would be a happier healthier bride. I have been telling myself for the last 2 years that I have time to lose the weight and just kept putting it off. Well the year is here that it is happening and I haven't lost any, I've gained. I know that I am more motivated today than I have been in the last couple years and that is what is going to keep me at it. I can do this! The weekend will be trying but I am gonna do my best to stay on track.
My next goal is getting more active. I worked out yesterday and am feeling the affects today as I am sore. But it's a good sore :) I am going to start using my treadmill till I can get an elliptical. Can't wait till it gets nice out again. I love gardening! Another goal is to finally get back to running like I did when I was younger. I loved running and would like to do at least a 5K at some point.
Hoping that blogging my thoughts, goals, and achievments here will help keep me motivated as well. Good luck to all on this journey!
