Hi and welcome to my blog.
So I've decided to write a blog about my weight loss and self discovery journey. I am not a point counter, a carb eliminator or raw foodie. However, I have tried them in an attempt to either lose weight quickly or to simply lose weight. I am not a binge eater, nor a snacker. Emotional eater, not sure but boredom maybe. Portion control is a struggle. I also love to cook...
At this point, I have not been told that I have any medical conditions that are affecting my health but I am morbidly obese. This is always a shocker to me... I just can't believe that it has gotten this far out of hand.
So why now? and why will this time be different? Great questions. Honestly, I can't say that it will. I am hoping that this blog helps me to be accountable to myself. I am also hoping that someone else can be motivated and can also motivate me.
Why the need to blog? I have no idea why I am making this very personal journey public. Not a clue. I do think that this can help me find support which I don't always have.
I do know that this is a process from the inside out. This is where LF comes in. LF is my nutritionist. I am not sure what I thought a nutritionist would be but she isn't it. She makes me think. Think about food, myself, my choices, what makes me happy.
I also have great family, friends, and a husband that support me and want to see me succeed.
This is something that I have to do my way. I acknowledge that my journey is going to be long and difficult at times but nothing worthwhile is easy.
Plan of action:
Do what works for me.
Eat breakfast - this is something that I have learned I need and my body really likes.
Plan - my meals, my days and goals. This does not mean that I can't go out to eat but it does mean that I need to make educated choices about what I put in my body.
Move- I have to exercise, park further, take the stairs more often and make it a priority in my life.
Drink- Yes drink. Water, water and more water. I like water and my body loves it. It helps my skin, my body and most of all my system.
Sleep/rest - I work hard. At times it affects my sleep but I have to improve this area of my life. I know I am repeating myself but I like sleep and my body loves it. It helps my skin, my body and most of all my system.
So how am I going to begin.
Breakfast, three 16.9 bottles of water, and movement.
This journey is more than about weight. This is about becoming the best me that I can be. Tears will be shed and pain will be felt but I am worth it. It's time to begin.
