Why is that so many people have problems stating the obvious. Over the past years, I've been very unhappy with my weight. The thing is, I knew that I had to either accept the fat or change it. With four kids, that is easier said than done, but I'm up for the challenge. You see, I'm fat. Yes, I said it! I don't see why there is an issue with saying when I look in the mirror and see it every day. Now there is a difference in being mean about it and being realistic. I'm realistic. I choose not to stay this way, but if I did I would be okay with it.
So here is the deal. I'm 178 as of today. I want to get to 135. I'll be happy with 140-145. But for now my goal is 170. Are you still following me?
Here is the plan. I'm going to get to the gym as often as possible. On weeks that I make a cake, it will be harder. If I can't get to the gym, I plan to walk the dog for a few miles. On the eating front, I'm going to juice a few meals and eat when I feel necessary. I can't do a full juice fast because of breastfeeding Ian. (And no. I did not lose more than my pregnancy weight by breastfeeding. Only some lucky women lose weight while breastfeeding. I am not in that category!) I plan on reducing meat intake, staying away from fried foods and keeping refined food out of my diet. Not only do I plan on losing weight, I plan on a lifestyle change. Do you see where I'm going with this?
On top of all that, I'm going to try and blog about it all!
