Today has gone pretty good even though I am starting to lose some momentum, think I am just tiered and it just a small hump in the road easily stepped over. My breakfast oatmeal was actually good I did not even miss all the butter and sugar I would normally use. Lunch was so good, I tried this new salad dressing and it was yummy. Still cant do the whole exercise video yet hopefully in a week or so when my legs are stronger, I still work up a good sweat doing as much as I can. It is so cute the little ones try to do it with me. I still seam to be hungry a lot but I think it is more from habit then anything else.
The Beginning of the End
I was a very thin child till I reached puberty then I started putting on the weight. At 15 I was a size 11 and thought then I was fat. I got pregnant and gained 25lbs, before I had a chance to lose the baby weight I was pregnant again and gained another 20lbs.
Over the next 15 yrs I ate and ate, from loneliness to depression to just plain boredom, till i was 260lbs. Then I got pregnant again only gained 11lbs but after while nursing my appetite went through the roof and I gained 30lb, got pregnant again and did the same thing.
I am now 37 and weigh 328lbs
The Start of my New Life
Every night when I would go to sleep I would think I wish I could just wake up thinner, knowing I need to do the work but always thinking I CANT.
I don't know what changed my mind but I now know I CAN.
I have not set a short term goal for myself yet, I will get to it, maby :).
My long term goal is to lose 150lbs.
I will be writing about my day to day life on this adventure. I am keeping track of my weight loss and my meals so I know what is working and what is not.
What I am Doing
I am counting calories and portion size.
Eating 5 meals a day.
Exercising at home for 30 mins 1-2 times a day, as
well as keeping the house clean and chasing after 2 toddlers.
Taking a diet pill called OxiElite Pro.
Drinking lots of water.
Not eating after 9pm and going to bed earlier.
