Why Do This? I love my life. I don’t want a heart attack, or diabetes or any of the million things being fat can cause. I want to feel good about myself, and I want to feel like I can do anything and not be hindered by how I look. I want to feel like people see ME when they meet me, how amazing I am and what I have to offer, and not my size.
I want to like myself more.
So, I have an entire small person to lose. I know this is a long term battle, and I am prepared to change my life.
What I do right: I go to the gym, I try to eat sensibly, I am active, I take vitamines and try to stay healthy, I visit my doctor, when I eat on the run I usually go to subway and am very good about my food choices.
What I do wrong: I eat garbage food at least once per week (nuggets and sweet and sour sauce destroy my life), I don’t go to the gym enough, I sometimes get caught in weight loss traps (like pills), I lose motivation and confidence when nothing changes
I used to be an athlete–I played basketball, volleyball, competitively swam, was a dancer– but even then I was still overweight. When I stopped those things and went to university, it really fell apart.
I will go to the gym min 3x/week, and stick to the Turbo Jam workouts. This will give me some cardio exercise each day, and the gym gives me weight training.
