Here We Go...

Sunday, June 23, 2013

Okay, so this is the (kind of) start to my weight loss. Before you say anything, let me explain. My actual beginning weight was 233, as of about a month and a half ago. I went to the doctor for pink eye (ugh) and they did the normal stat checkup and I weighed in at a yucky 233. My original weight from the first time around. I had just gotten a new job. Before this I was working in daycare, where I sat literally all day long and played with kids. I also worked next door to a convience store, that was right in walking distance, add in an hour long lunch break and you have trouble. So my weight piled on, not to mention the fact that I was eating crappy at home and not doing any kind of exercise. Now, fast forward to now, at my new job. I work in a factory, where I am on my feet for 8 plus hours a day, running back and forth through a warehouse. I only have a half hour lunch, and no convience store nearby, that I could get to and back within a half hour time. So I pack a decent lunch everyday and bring a water bottle. Unfortunately I do have a soda and vending machine at work which can be dangerous when I actually have cash on me (which is rare) so I do indulge sometimes. Pepsi is my sinful downfall, always has been. But I digress. I have lost 10 pounds over this time frame, from when I had the pink eye, to weighing myself just a half hour ago. I know the first ten are usually water weight, but its still ten pounds less than I was, so I'll take it! My biggest concern, I guess, is how to incorporate some of the things I still love (I'm a carb junkie, put chips and candy in front of me, I'll take the chips any day of the week) because I know myself well enough that I can't cold turkey it. I can't just stop eating some of this stuff. But I want to be able to eat them in a healthy way, so if anybody is a nutritionist and can offer any advice I will love you forever! I have some major and minor goals that I want to accomplish. I want to actually be a runner. I want to learn how to surf. I want to learn how to cook. I want to walk into a store and buy something off the rack. I want to wear a tanktop and look good in a tank top. I want to wear a two piece bathing suit. I want to be the woman that has been buried so far down and has been trying to claw her way back up to the light. I want to let her out, because she deserves it. I want to be the woman I was always meant to be :)

    Actually the chips are my dads lol. I saw them and my willpower failed me completely haha. I don't normally eat chips like that unless a bbq is involved. Like I said I'm a carb junkie and I'm trying to weane myself slowly :) thank you for the words of encouragement and I'm glad you enjoyed my blog! I'm going to write at least once a week! It helps to write it all down! :)

    I really enjoyed reading your blog.
    I went from an active job to an office job and put on pounds. So I totally backwards do some things ....
    You are doing great clawing everything.
    I am not sure about the chips though. I don't buy them usually but sometimes my boy friend (BF) does and I eat them all. Every now and then I can add a very small serving to a plate of food and be okay.
    Good luck!
