I started on April 1st weighing 329.6, I got on the scale today and it said 301.1. I almost cried because I realized how much has changed in 44 days. When I decided to restart my journey I knew it wouldn't be easy, but it would be worth it. I made the decision to eat better and to exercise more. It's the same thing I say to myself every time i hit the restart button, but this time so far it's been different. With food I still make bad choices , but I don't use it as an excuse to blow the whole day. If I want chocolate I eat a piece of chocolate, but not a whole bag. I don't hate myself for having a cookie. I eat more fruits and veggies (actually I drink them), I drink more water than soda, and I eat less fast food. As far as exercise I did something I never thought I would do, I joined a gym. I was so nervous the first day I almost backed out. I have gone no less than 4 times a week since I've joined. My favorite thing right now is the hill setting on level 20. I also really enjoy putting my headphones on and just going for a walk. I feel proud of my progress and am determined to keep going!
