Goal weight: at least 150.
Interests: Reading, writing, exercising, teaching, learning, cooking.
Tell us about yourself: I am a senior, soon to be graduating and going off to college. I have a wonderful boyfriend. I am looking to lose some weight so I can feel healthy and wonderful in my own skin.
Anyways, this is my first journal. Obviously no one else has joined so far, but I am hoping that some people will. I think this has the potential to be a good community for people to help each other and support each other. I have been working out for a few months now, but unfortunately I have also been eating a lot. Graduation is a time for celebration, and that means tons of food! lol. So when I weighed myself today, the first time in a loooong time mind you, and clocked in at 197.2....I was not happy. I have never been that high. Last I knew I was about 176-180. And back then, I thought that was bad for me. So, I am finally going to get on track. A few things I am doing to improve.
-Keeping this journal.
-Cutting out soda from my diet, and drinking more water throughout the day.
-No more eating out! (It's okay occasionally, but man, I eat out a lot lately. lol)
-Cut down on snacks.
-No midnight snacking.
-Salads instead of our normal (fatty) school lunches.
-Trying to set aside time to exercise for at least 10-30 minutes each day.
-Walk/and or bike more than drive.
Those are just a few things I am going to do to get started. I am going to post daily/weekly. Daily to keep track of what I have done, and weekly with a weight update. Anyone who joins is welcome to follow that pattern, or anything they want. It's up to you! =)
Toodles for now!
