Anyway, like the first time I lost weight in undergrad, I did a lot of "preparing" myself for eating right and starting to exercise. I like to research and just get prepared and then jumped right into being healthy. Which is what I've been doing... I guess I'm sort of "slow to warm up" and really had to be into it with my heart and head to really jump in. But, I'm ready now. ::yay:: I stumbled across this website over the weekend and am in love with all the healthy food choices and how it seems like she still eats. I probably have a few years on her and it will probably take me a lot longer to lose weight since I cannot work out right now and my thyroid is all sorts of messed up at the moment. But if I start making healthy choices and being mindful of what I am eating then hopefully when I am healthy again, the weight will start slipping off. I am hoping to be 20lbs lighter by Christmas. And by this time next year, I hope to be to my goal weight.
I'm not going to use this entry to reveal my weight loss goals and what I weigh, but I am going to say that I am going to make this public--exact weight, pictures of progress, everything. I want to be honest and I want accountability. Call me crazy if you want, but I think that this is what will work for me. I'm putting it all out there. It's time to hold myself accountable for what I do to my body. I have to learn how to love my body again. I have to learn how to love myself again. And this is how I'm going to do it.
I'm tired of being "fat". I'm tired of feeling like crap all the time emotionally and physically. I'm going to be honest, open and start working on improving myself. I will reach my goal weight before I am 30 :) So here it is and where about I am starting from. Let's do this!!
Stay tuned next week for an update on where I am now and what I plan on doing :) I'm going to do this!!
