I am a bigger girl. I have been told to embrace it, however, I have came to a point in my life that I am just not happy with my weight anymore. I have decided to document my weight loss journey here on my blog. I started gaining weight after I fell through a bad depression back in 2012. After the loss of our sweet Aubrey in 2013, it got worse. I was up to 222 lbs not long ago. That is the heaviest that I have ever been. I went on my trip to Disneyland and I was out of breath, and I saw a picture of myself that opened up my eyes on how heavy I really am. I have stopped drinking pop and eating sweets completely. I was drinking up to 4 cans of Dr Pepper or more a day. Below is a picture to show you the weight I have put on. I am making myself vulnerable showing these, however, I have to be open and honest with all of you to document my journey. Below is a picture of myself in 2011, and now in 2015. You can see why I want to lose weight.
I have received a few items to review to assist me in my journey! You will learn more about them here on my blog. I am using myfitnesspal to help keep track of my calories. After putting in all of my information, as of now my goal is set to 1,340 a day.
Week 1 weigh in-
Goal -170 or less.
How I feel this week
Through the week, I stopped drinking pop and started drinking more water. I stopped eating sweets. I am walking a mile a day down the driveway. Going down 4 times and back 4 times is a mile here. I feel like I have more energy since I stopped drinking pop. I can walk up the stairs without feeling like I am out of breath now. The first two days without pop left me with a migraine like no other. It is gone now, thankfully! I just tell myself that I CAN DO THIS.
Thank you for reading. I can't wait to share this journey with all of you! Any tips for me?
