Ok so this may not be quite as long as the rest but need to make sure to touch base, keep holding my self accountable. WEIGHT LOSS EFFORTS SUCK. I firmly believe people who try to make a better life style for themselves quit around this time due to frustration. Seriously!
I have been watching the food I eat, keeping it as organic as possible. Yes thats right organic. Why? We are trying to rid out bodies of the poison that we put into it, and don't see the need in aiding more poisons to enter my body. Better in, better out?
Also as far as my exercise regimen? I have been walking 2.1 miles nightly! My friend and I take a walk down by the water front by my house. Its beautiful and peaceful. And I am happy to report I think we are ready to step it up. As said in my first post. It starts with moving. And it feels GOOD. So good, I hope to report the increase in movement/exercise area.
Ok, ok. So... its not what I would consider a fad diet, but I decided to try a detox type thing. Bought the "Jillian Michaels" detox system. Guess what? I was a tootin away, but... thats it. So, I'm cool with spending money to be gassy. It may have been doing more, but after experiencing the toots I Googled the product. (which I should have done first, it was a spur of the moment purchase). Super bad rating on many different sites. I see why. May try another cleanse, just not sure which one yet. But not going to do a super crazy one.
When I first started this change my family was fighting me tooth and nail. Man are we addicted to processed CRAP. Kept my gloves on, and they are def coming around. Vary excited about that! Its still a battle, but I will keep up the efforts in making this family healthy. After all, we need to show this world how its done for a loooong time :)
I am trying to learn to live again. Does anyone understand how truly dead fat people are? We already started digging our grave. Im crawling my way back out damit. I choose life. I am forcing myself to get up and actually take part in life. Change starts NOW. I have felt so much better just in moving more and changing what I eat. Want to hear something weird? I am having a hard time getting in 1200 calories. What?!? Ya weird right? Guess what... You have to eat to keep your metabolism going. So thats an on going struggle. Eating small meals, frequently. Not all at once.
So weight lost? Drum roll please.....
4 lbs this week-ish!
Total loss- 8 lbs
I want more, but as my Grandpa said "You didn't gain it over night, you wont loose it overnight" He is vary proud of me, and that means A LOT :)
I want to thank everyone thats in this journey with me. I have had amazing support and I am truly humbled. It gives me drive to keep going. When I get discouraged and want to just have that fast food meal, Or don't "feel" like walking, I come on here and read the comments. Remember what people have said to me. And it gives me drive. This week sucked, but you all helped. Loves ya all bunchs.
