It's a fresh new start!
As all of you guys who know me already know, I am no skinny minnie... in fact I am quite the opposite. I am fed up with being heavy (fat) and I am starting a new way of life. It actually started on Monday but I suck at updating my blog.
I am going to lose weight in a healthy way and keep it off. I am going to eat better, drink more water, and exercise. EXERCISE! :) I have a meeting with the owner of the gym today with Nick and we are getting gym memberships. Woh doggie that is gonna whip my butt into shape! Literally lol.
So, what I am doing is cutting back a lot on calories while exercising so I can burn those pounds off. I am limiting myself to about 1200 a day (between 1200-1300) and making sure to drink more water. I know this seems silly, but even after 4 days I already feel less bloated and more healthy. Probably psychological but whatever... just go with it!
I found out by going to the doctor today that our scale is stupid and weighs really incorrectly (like between 6-10 lbs heavier). So, when I start going to the gym I am going to be solely weighing myself there. And, I am going to make sure my husband makes me stick to only 1 weigh-in a week. I get obsessive...
Anyway, I am really excited! I want to get down to 160 (or 150 if healthy) pounds. This means losing a LOT of weight but I am motivated. Any and all of my friends, please encourage me because I need it and please scold me if you think I am eating something I shouldn't be :)
LET'S DO THIS THING!!!!!!!
