Losing It All

Monday, October 31, 2005

Nothing tastes as good as thin feels. Nothing tastes as good as thin feels.... That has been my mantra for the last 8 days. And surprisingly it has been working. I have been overweight my entire life. I don't know what made me decide to change my lifestyle all of a sudden but... I did. I figured out that in order to be at my "healthy" weight, I would need to lose half of myself. That's a lot. I started this challenge to myself weighing in at 321.5 pounds. And after one week of not eating anything that I actually like I have lost a whopping 5 pounds. Yea! So at least not eating the things that I enjoy has paid off. Well that and the killer step class that I have been taking on Saturday mornings. Let me tell you... After the first class I couldn't walk for two days! (That could be because I started with the Intermediate class rather than the beginner) oopps. And I pulled muscles that I forgotten existed. Like my coffee drinking muscle and my smoking muscle. But in the end it is worth it. I call this losing it all because I am planning on losing weight and losing all of the emotional baggage that I blame for causing the weight gain (yeah I know excuses, excuses) But the excuses are done now. And I have reasonable goals set up and everything. By Christmas I want to lose 30 pounds and by spring break when I go on vacation I would like to have lost 60 pounds. And I have 5 pounds down! I guess my final goal would be to weigh 150 - 160.... But that is a long way off. I can't think about that now. I can only take it one day at a time and remember that nothing tastes as good as thin feels......
