I woke up this morning and I was so tired, I didn’t think I’d be able to even get out of bed. But the baby was awake, so I had no choice. He comes first.
I got up and did our usual routine. Grabbed the baby from his crib, brought him downstairs, put him in his highchair, got his breakfast ready and put on a cartoon for him. Went in the kitchen and started to make my morning smoothie, when I felt like I had to use the bathroom. After I went to the bathroom I looked in the giant mirror that takes up half of my bathroom wall. Normally I hate that mirror. I hate looking at myself. But today, something was different. I looked in the mirror, and noticed that I looked a little bit smaller.
I have been eating healthier for about a month now, and started going to the gym about a week and a half ago. I lost 10 lbs, but when I got on the scale this morning.. I was back up another 6 lbs. I try not to pay attention to the scale because muscle weighs more than fat… But it does kind of suck.
Anyways, when I looked in the mirror I pulled my shirt up, and I felt great! I am noticeably smaller, and don’t feel bloated at all! I have pictures from when I started this journey, and when I compared the pictures from them and the pictures from today, it was great. Really gave me a boost of confidence and makes me feel great. It’s amazing how something so small can change your mood so much!
I’m hoping that my mother in laws boyfriend can watch the baby later so I can go to the gym. He’s not home right now. It’s only been a week and a half and I’m already starting to crave the gym! I love it! I think this is exactly what I’ve needed. To lose weight…
I think that losing weight is going to even out my emotions and make me overall happier. Maybe once i get to my goal weight, I can finally start to love myself again.
My starting weight was 238 lbs. (fortunately I don’t look it at all!)
A week and a half ago my weight was 226 lbs.
Today my weight was 232 lbs.
My goal weight is 150 lbs.
I’m hoping to accomplish this goal in about a year’s time. I know it’s not going to be easy. But with a lot of hard work and dedication… It’s possible. Right now, I’m only eating fruits, veggies and meats (mostly chicken).
Here’s to hoping that my goals can be accomplished and that I can lose that weight! 🙂
