I can't believe I am actually doing this. I read many blogs a day, mostly weight loss/Weight Watchers ones. These 'friends in my head' (Marissa, Ms. Bitch Cakes, Sally, TJ & Brandi to name a few) have inspired me to get off my lazy arse and do something about my weight.
I think I was born overweight. I have never felt normal sized my whole life. Even at my thinnest, I would say i felt kind of overweight, at my heaviest (around 2002) - disgusting. I am teetering at the latter currently.
Almost 9 years ago, I lost almost 50lbs with weight watchers. Then I got cocky - I could do it on my own, why pay the money? Which led to 'points are boring - how about south beach?" which helped me lose about 15 more pounds putting me at my lightest weight as an adult, about 170 lbs. Restricting carbs does not work for the long haul. Restricting anything doesn't work. If you told me not to eat cardboard for a week, on day 3 I would be eating a Wheaties box.
So fast forward to today. I am currently doing a fitness bootcamp where the trainer preaches a no carb diet. And guess what I did? Yep - restricted those carbs, worked out like a MoFo, and lost about 15 lbs. A trip to Vegas for 5 days, and of course a post vacation binge (because why should eating like crap stop as soon as I get home??) made me find all that lost weight, and here I am back at the starting gate.
Lunch in Vegas
So what to do? Here is my plan:
- Weigh myself tomorrow
- Journal my food intake here on this blog
- Join WW (debating between the Thursday night meeting or Saturday morning)
- Go back to boot camp, until it expires 11/31 and then join the gym at work.
If you got this far, thanks! I promise less ramble in my posts from now on.
If any of my 'friends in my head' do read this any suggestions for a new blogger?
