OMG I can not believe it!!!

Tuesday, March 06, 2007

OK I have been going thru a lot of problems as of late. So I have had my mind far away from here, but my heart was still in it. JUst that I am an emotional eater so I had been binging a lot. And I assumed I was getting bigger. So when my doctor said "Get on the scale let's weigh you" he actually had to force me onto the scale. He argued and then told me very harshly GET ON THE DAMN SCALE. I got on and closed my eyes tight while he asked me "So what have u been eating?" And I answered a whole bunch of junk and lots of rice too.
He told me stop it and get on track again. And then he asked, with my eyes still closed, still drinking soda and I confessed SOMETIMES. Well stop that too. And then he said "You would have a had a greater weight loss if you had stood on track" And I opened my eyes and looked at him WEIGHT LOSS???
and sure enough yes! I have gone from 347 to 313. Okay it took me 3 and a half months but I managed to lose 10 lbs on average a month. Okay so now I am so hyped about this that tonight we are having a celebratory meal and then after that I making the whole family go on a diet with me to help resist the temptation. They can break it as long as they are not here doing it.
Okay I am gonna really try. It is that when I was consciously trying I felt like I was failing. Well I am gonna try as best as I can and then just take it slowly. It wasn't that my eating was bad, it was that after I threw out my back I caught pneumona and every time after that I used a case of the sniffles as an excuse not to study.
No more excuses. Maybe if I get back into the habit I can use my yoga to get rid of this endless back pain.
Wish me luck everyone. I am going in for round 2 and I aim to come out victorious!!!
Oh yeah and a new reason for the weigt lose. Come this fall I wil be entering college again to finish my degree in Legal Studies. Adn if I gotta compete mentally and physically against 18 , 19 and 20 year olds I need to get into prime shape to run around campus. YAY I am so excited!!
