This is the first week of the rest of my life!
That’s my new attitude going into weight loss. I have several reasons for wanting to lose weight and I am sure you have some of the same reasons. I want to be healthy. I want to get off of the couch without hurting. I want to bend over without making grunts, as if that will help me bend over or get up. Waking up without hurting would be nice. Can anyone tell me how you wake up in the morning and your feet hurt? Honestly, I want to look in the mirror and she the same person I see in my head. I want to buy a cute shirt and it really be a cute shirt and not look like a sail of a boat by the time I see it in my size. I want to be pretty again.
So here we go and I am putting it all out there.
WEIGHT: 216 POUNDS
HEIGHT: 5′ 5″
MEASUREMENTS: Chest 45 3/4 inches, Waist 45 1/4 inches, Hips 50 1/2 inches
Well, there you have it. At the beginning of next week I will give my measurements again. Tell me I don’t have a lot to lose. I am about as round as I am tall. Remember that I am eating healthy with nothing processed and no sugar. I will be exercising. I already do 45 minutes on the elliptical with a full incline using resistance and still don’t lose weight. Can someone explain that? I will be introducing weight training slowly. I mean did you see the measurements? Slowly.
Update: I did go to the doctor this week and I found out that I have high cholesterol. My doctor said if my cholesterol gets any higher then I will need to be on medication. Yes, I am fat but I had no idea that I was this bad. I am also in constant pain. I have pain in my joints and muscles and it hurts to stand up when sitting. My feet hurt in the morning. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia but I really believe this is due to me being heavy. This changes my attitude about losing weight. It’s not about being pretty and buying cute clothes only, it really is about getting healthy and feeling better.
I can do this, I can do this, I can do this!! Keep repeating.
