My 180 In Georgia
Friday, August 10, 2007
As of June 1st I became single again. Also as of June 1st I was on a mission for a better life. I won't go into great detail about the past because as they say, the past is the past. But there was a year that I was unemployed, no car, no school, nothing to keep me motivated but TV, Computer and Food! I went from a beautiful 145lbs to a whooping 227lbs! I blew up like a balloon! I never saw it coming though. I just kept relying on food as comfort. I've decided that I'm a very emotional eater. If I'm feeling depressed, I will grab whatever I can to make me feel better. If I'm having an 'off' day, a trip to the drive through is in order.
After moving south and living with my mom, I realized that the choices I was making were extremely bad and I needed her help. I told her, I have been living like a pig, eating like a pig, and I don't want to be a pig. Please, do what you have to do to change me. If that means you have to yell at me every day to clean my room, or only provide health food for me to eat, do it! I'm on a mission and I'm not gonna stop. A big girl like me has a slim chance of meeting a cute guy if she doesn't feel confident. And in that big body I was not even a little confident. I was wearing nothing but stretch pants. There were no zippers on my jeans. I was too big for that :(
Now that I've moved to Georgia I have been on the ABS diet. My mom has guided me on how to do it and even though she's having a hard time sticking to it because of her work schedule, I am doing the best I can solo! My mom also has a home gym system so I try to get up and do that every day! I've been pretty regular at exercising on the ball. I find that very fun and rewarding in the exercise. I also do the weights as often as possible. My biggest issue is cardio. I do not like to sweat! But I'm working on it.
So when I first moved to Georgia I was at my heaviest, weighing in around 227lbs! And a size 20 pants. Now as of August 10th, I weight 201lbs and size 18 pants are a little big! I'm feeling great, I look great and I can't wait to lose the next 60lbs!
