April 16, 2010-The Beginning, Again
Friday, April 16, 2010
Hi, first blog @ spark, first blog in years where I don't think anyone I know will be reading it. (So you get the truth) :)
The basics: I am 26, live in Chicago, un-employed accountant studying for my CPA exams so I can find a job more easily. I live with my boyfriend, Greg. My current weight is 225 and my heaviest and lowest adult weights were 265 and 158.
I have a very long history with weight. I remember where I was at different numbers and have been up and down all my life. It's hard, it's complicated. I'm not sure what to include in this first blog because there is SO much to say...
The present/more recent: I am 225 and would like to lose about 2pds/week from now til late July when we are going on vacation to Jamaica. We went last year for the first time. I was not the worst body...but I think I was the worst for my age and for not ever having a kid. I should be able to lose ~24 by then...give or take. My plan is Slim Fast powder w/milk for breakfast and lunch, snack of fruit or nuts or something like that between breakfast and lunch and lunch and dinner, we have healthy dinners, something like a frozen bertolli or a noodle/meat/veggie. Once a week we eat something bigger like Chipoltle or Subway... And I bought 12 of the 2-day juice fast bottles, so I'll do one of those a week. This isn't the healthiest plan, certainly not a permanent diet change. What I eat normally without any exercise maintains my weight, so I'm not that worried about short term slim fast/juice fasting plans. Also, I just got a bike so we can do Bike the Drive and Tour de Cure again this year and we bought a thing so I can hook it up inside and ride it like a stationary. We also go for leisurely walks...and I'm doing some floor exercises like situps leg lifts pushups etc.
