I weighed myself this morning and I am currently down 13.2 pounds in just under 3 weeks!!
New Year’s Resolutions, FTW!!! (FTW = for the win. It took me a few
minutes months to figure it out so I thought I would pass it along for those that didn’t know. It also stands for F*** the World so you see why I was very confused for several months. I couldn’t understand why everybody in my virtual world had become so gangsta all of a sudden. Turns out? I’m just incredibly white and nerdy.)
I swear to all that is Holy, I’m not doing anything crazy. I honestly wouldn’t even call this a “diet”. I’m just monitoring my calorie intake and trying to make more mindful choices. I remind myself to reach for a yogurt as a snack rather than ice cream. Or to throw extra spinach leaves in my veggie wrap and a little less cheese. It’s really hard most days but I’m trying to keep in mind what I posted last week about loving myself into healthy. I’m doing this for me. I want to be healthy and, eventually, get to a point where this is my norm and “making good choices” becomes “eating” because a majority of what I eat will just naturally be a good choice.
Does that make sense?
It sounds good in my head and when I read it out loud but I know what I mean and I hope you do, too.
One thing that has really helped? Having friends on the journey with me! I’ve raved before about My Fitness Pal so I will spare you, but it’s really really amazing how much more motivated I feel when I login and see that one friend burned over 600 calories with one workout (ZOMG!) or that this friend lost 1 pound last week! It inspires me to keep it up so that I will have something to post that I am proud of. It also helps tremendously that Greg is losing weight with me. It’s always nice when your partner in life grabs your hand and you can make a journey together.
Another thing that is helping? My fat fighters! I love those little suckers! I’m also wrapping at least once/week to help tighten my skin as I lose weight.
One thing I need to work on?
I know that I would love it if I could just commit to it but man, oh man. It’s really hard to get to that point.
But, still!! 13.2 pounds!!! Whoot Whoot!!!
