Wednesday Weigh-In

Today's weight: 193.5

Down 3 pounds since last week!  I was pleasantly surprised when I stood on the scale.  It is so nerve-racking when you are waiting for the scale to stop thinking about how much you weigh.

This week I:
  • Didn't eat any fastfood.
  • Cooked dinner at home and packed my lunch every day.
  • Only drank 1 soda.
  • Only ate ONE piece of cake at the surprise birthday party we threw for my mom.  That is monumental!
Physical activity this week:
  • Played soccer on Friday in my indoor league.  Still staying clear of the gym.
I know I need to do more in the physical activity department.  I downloaded Couch to 5K on my ipod, so I am going to start doing that.

This was an encouraging week!

Wednesday Weigh-In

I have reached a point where I don't recognize the girl in the mirror anymore.  When someone tags me in a picture on facebook, I untag it as fast as I can.  If I see someone from high school while at the store, I hide.  I don't want anyone to see me like this.  I don't like looking at myself like this.

I constantly tell myself I'm going to get serious about eating right/exercising tomorrow.  Or Monday.  Or the 1st of the month...Right after I finish off this bag of cookies or tub of ice cream.  Then I will start. 

I have a gym membership, but I hate to go because I feel too fat to be there.  How dumb is that?  Isn't that what the gym is FOR?

I have never understood why I never make any progress and I think it's because I don't have any accountibility.  There is only so much I can do alone.  I need someone else to know about these goals.

So I am going to commit to getting rid of this weight.  Every Wednesday I'm going to post how much I weigh.  This scares the crap out of me, and I'm extremely embarrassed to put the number on paper (interweb?).  But maybe that's a good thing.

So here it is:                    196.5

My goal weight is 145.  I don't have a specific time frame I would like to lose the 50 pounds in.  That has been a huge problem of mine.  I set unrealistic goals (20 pounds in 2 weeks?  Yeah, I tried to do that once.  Obviously didn't work.) and then feel devastated when I don't reach them.

Wish me luck!

Life has been crazy lately, thus the lack of posting.  Tomorrow I will be back with a new thing I want to do every Wednesday.  Until then, I'll leave you with my new favorite picture of the sisters.
