~Our Renewals~ Hey my WBC family! I've been a little hush- hush lately. Our 14th wedding ann...
Let me start by saying..I have another account on here and I think the world of all you ladies. You are all so great and helpful. Everyone has amazing ideas and you're all willing to share them with everyone else here..even your secret plans for your big day! Its like we're a BIG family!
But heres the thing...I'm a chubby bride. No let me rephrase that..I'm going to be a chubby bride if I don't kick my butt in gear! Weight is something that I've never been open to discussing (hence why there is another account not to be traced back to me..hopefully) But I figured this is a way I can get your feedback (because there are soo many girls here that have tried so many different diets and work out plans and such so you all have soo many opinions to offer) and maybe this will keep me motivated..and maybe it will hit home with someone else out there! If I have a place to be held responsible, to admit when I do bad or be congratulated when I do good I think it will keep me motivated.
A little background on me. For the past year I stopped "caring" I guess you would say about my weight. I didn't exercise..I didn't watch what or how much I was eating. But lately I've been...umm..disgusted I guess is the word..with myself. And upset that the people around me feel the need to point my weight gain out to me...don't you think I notice!!?? I need to do something. I come from a family where we are all bigger. My mom was smaller when she was younger but when she got older, had kids..the weight started coming and now she can't get it off. Thats what I fear right now. I've always been the smaller of the family and I fear that what happened to my mom is enividibly going to happen to me. I don't want that. So lets just say "its in my genes" to be chubby. But I'm willing to put up the fight!
I decided to start by admitting where I know I'm going wrong so here it is..
I eat when FH eats
I eat what FH eats
Fh eats junk
FH does manual labor all day and burns the junk off
(see the problem?)
Heres another one I'm going to admit..*deep breath* I'm one of those secret eaters :( I have gone threw the fast food drive thru gotten something to eat and then thrown the evidence away before someone saw it so no one knew I was eating it. But I was never one of those kids that did that. I barely ate as a kid. Maybe its all catching up to me now..in my ass!
So heres the deal. I joined a gym and am forcing myself to go atleast 4-5 times a week. On the days I don't go FH and I are going for atleast a 30 minute bike ride. Also a girl from work has offered to join me..maybe that will be encouragment to keep going too. Having someone else depending on me to be going!
First week at the gym....
Tuesday I did weights and 15 minutes on the elipticle. And then FH and I went on a 30 minute bike ride later that night.
Today I did 10 minutes on the elipticle then weights then another 20 minutes on the elipticle.
Start weight: 195
Goal weight: 150..for now
I figure start at a reasonable small goal first. I'm also going to set smaller goals "lose 5 lbs this week" and then do it again the next week
I use to be 150 and felt great!! But at my 5'4" height thats still considered "overweight"..but I figure I felt great so be it..plus I think I pulled 150 off pretty good!
I've also decided to stop cooking the crap that FH likes and we're going to eat healthier...together!
Wish me luck!
