So here we are again. The heaviest I have ever been in my life. Just recently I got put on a second blood pressure medication and the doctor told me we can wait on the cholesterol meds if I thought I could lose weight. When she asked if I thought I could, I laughed hysterically. Not that I thought that was a funny question but I let her know that just 3 years prior I had went from a size 20 to a size 6! Yes, of course I know I can lose weight! It’s starting and continuing that becomes the problem for me.
I always joke with doctors when they go down through the list asking me if I drink, smoke, do drugs, ect. I always tell them that food is my drug of choice. Unfortunately sometimes I wonder if it would be better to start smoking, but then I realize I have not had a cigarette in over 8 years! No sense on jumping back on that train again.
Losing weight is hard! No joke! Life gets super busy, especially if you have kiddos. They are our number one priorty and the next thing you know, or I know is my legs haven’t been shaved in forever and then one day in the mirror I wonder where the heck did all that damn grey come from? Time to color my hair again?! If only I could find the time….
In the past I have tried so many diets. I even did the Atkins diet where you can eat all the meat you want! Then your trying to make the pee stick turn purple because you want to be in ketoacidosis or something like that? Well that got to scary for me so that is one I won’t go back to. This time since I have no extra time in my life to sit there and count calories, or count points or any of that I’m going to use what I have learned over the many years of battling with my weight.
This time I’m changing what I eat. NO MORE take out! NO MORE soda! I will not shop when I am hungry and I will not keep food in the house that is tempting and unhealthy. Of course having a treat now and then has to happen or trying to lose weight will never work. I have come up with the plan of one day a week our family can choose one food item that we really like and treat ourselves that one time for that week.
I can’t believe how many fruits and veggies I have consumed in the last 12 days since starting my journey. I really thought that I would feel more energetic and healthy but I have to be honest my body is not liking me one bit! It’s like it’s detoxifying from all the crap I have been eating for the past few years. Hopefully that subsides. On a good note though, this morning I put my favorite jeans on and thought “Whoah did those just slip on easy?” Yep, they USED to be tight as hell lol. I have lost 10 lbs so far and feeling a little lighter. =)
I have a lot of weight to lose so this is going to be one heck of a journey but I’m ready! I have to be, my end result is wanting to be happier and healthier and get rid of the blood pressure medication.
Thanks for visiting WEMAKE7! =)
