Friday, October 21, 2011

well i think ive tried to lose weight about 50 times, but u know those are just humps that are for u to go over to get to where i am.. heres my story ive moved a few times, finally graduated college this past december of 2010 and went to live in arizona, it sucked, so i moved to texas where my brother and nephew live. well my brother and and his girlfriend are really obese and i am about 50lbs over weight (was at 211 now im at like 185)... i live with them and my nephew and my brothers bf's 17 yr old son. i started running again and then i stopped then recently i started working out again... my thing is ill run this one 1.27 mile trail at a park and then thats it.. i need to get to the point of running it twice or doing other exercises after it. i miss having a gym at my college where i could run on the football track and then go to the gym and lift weights. i think im going to have to get a gym membership, i hate paying for one but i guess its something i have to do when i have no space at my house to do it... anyways im hoping to lose 50 lbs.. dont know by when (my 10 yr high school reunion is next year) so maybe by then.. heres to doing it again successfully.. oh i forgot to mention an important thing, im trying to cut out soda and real sugar, they are my two heavy addictions

    ok so to lose a pound a week (don't knock it, that means your 50 lbs within the year), you need to create a deficit of 500 calories a day on average. so eating (drinking) only 200 calories less per meal than you usually would (without gaining weight, of course) will do it.
    now how many calories in a can of soda? could be around that. just switch to water, and you will go a long way!
