a bit about my journey
Thursday, August 18, 2011
A spark friend posted this from another post she saw from a team member who posted this on the forums, I thought I would put this into my blog!!
1.) How old are you? 41
2.) How long have you been overweight, obese, or unfit? Since the loss of my first pregnancy. Most of the excess weight on me can be attributed to births and deaths. Day to day, I'm pretty good, but the big things make me an emotional eater.
3.) What made you decide to get healthy? I have many valid reasons to get healthy- like my family and my health, but the truth is I'm tired of the way I look. I look at pictures and delete them, because I have this double chin and chubby face and fat arms and and and...
4.) Has anyone ever made rude/mean comments to you about how you look?
I worked with Kindergartners for a few years. I got tired of being asked if I was pregnant. They weren't being mean on purpose, but it still hurt.
5.) What do you hate the most about your current/starting size? The way I look in pictures. I think the thing that bugs me most is not having any good stores where I live now that have plus sizes. A large portion of the the population here are size zero Japanese women.
6.) What was your favorite unhealthy food before? Pepsi. I've stopped drinking it almost completely. I think I would crave it a lot more if I said absolutely no soda, so for now I just say "no thanks."
In the past month I've had one Pepsi, and I think that's pretty good.
7.) What's some of your favorite healthy foods now?
I usually eat pretty healthy. I like veggies raw, skinless chicken.
8.) What is the hardest part of this journey? The hardest part is temptation. I'm an at home mom. I'm working hard at not mindless snacking. I'm on my spark page every time I eat, so I don't miss tracking.
9.)What does your workout regime consist of? So far it's following the different workouts provided here plus walking and house work. We also go the beach every weekend and play or sea kayak.
10.) What do you want everyone to know about you? I need a job-if you are local and need help please let me know.
I love giraffes.
