Ugh. Here goes nothing.
260. That's my starting weight.
Oh, a little too small you say? Fine, have it your way. 260. That's my starting weight. Not proud of it, but it is what it is. I need to own it. I think that's a big step for me. Not pretending it's something else, something lower.
I plan on posting pictures when I can get someone to take them for me. I don't trust the photography skills of my 4 year old. Call me crazy. I want to have something to look back on, to see how far I've come.
As a side note, my sister is here. In my former life, I would have let the fact that I have company 1. be my excuse to not exercise (can't let any one know I am working on losing weight, ya know) 2. derail my eating (I am a KICKASS cook if I do say so myself, just not fabulous at cooking healthy entrees all the time) and 3. derail me completely - since I wasn't exercising or eating better, why bother at all. NOT THIS TIME! I made a healthy green chili for supper last night, will make baked chicken nuggets and baked squash tonight.
After I got done on the treadmill, she got on to do her workout. I almost let watching her derail me. She's a lot faster than I am - by at least 0.5mph, and then she does sprints too. But this time, I am letting her be something I aspire to be. She's been going to the gym and working out for awhile, does kick boxing, etc. She's also a LOT lighter than I am. So I will get there one day. Maybe she and I will be able to do a 5k together, and not walk, and I will be able to keep up with her. No, not maybe. We will! Just need to figure out when and how.
