Jessica at Pudget: Losing Weight on a Budget has inspired me to try, yet again, to lose weight. I really need to do something. It seems that my appetite is totally out of control and has a mind of its own. I weight more than I ever have, and it is really starting to get to me. Of course, I have some days that I think that it doesn't really bother me. But then, I have days like yesterday where I just feel fat. I have never been able to stick to any type of weight loss plan for very long. I have attended Weight Watchers, and I actually did lose weight. But, counting those points and writing everything down was such a hassle that I slowly went back to my old habits. I know what needs to be done to lose weight: drink water, less fattening foods, more fruits and veggies, exercise, and my number 1 problem, cut out the sweet tea and colas.
And all that brings me to what I am hoping will hold me accountable. I am starting a Weight Loss Wednesday right here. I am ashamed to say how much I weigh right now, only that I could stand to lose quite a bit. For now, I am going to track 50 pounds. I really hope that I can make it. I need all the support that I can get. If I can make this milestone, then there is definitely room to keep growing. I am not going to be so concerned as to how much I lose each week, just as long as I lose something...and don't gain. That will be a step in the right direction.
I actually started a new "habit" today. (It won't really be a habit until it actually is a habit!) But, I took my tennis shoes to work with me, along with my mp3 player. After work, I walked down the halls of the massive school where I work. You may wonder why I didn't go outside. Well, if you live around Alabama this time of year, you would realize that the humidity will kill you! So, I stayed inside where it was nice and air conditioned!
I'll update my status and all the hurdles, roadblocks, and successes each Wednesday. Please help keep me inspired by posting comments!
