I think it’s time for an awakening

Ugh. What the eff is wrong with me? Seriously. Not ONLY am I a horrible blogger, but I can’t seem to get this weight loss thing started. I need HELP! I need support. Is anyone out there reading? I’m drowning in my fat rolls!!


Meanwhile….I have been trying to get more of the wedding planned. It’s amazing how many things have to be left to the last minute. You would think that would thrill me considering my middle name is procrastination, but it really doesn’t. I am so anxious/excited for our wedding so it’s REALLY difficult to have to sit here and wait. Blah. I wish it were sooner!! January just seems so far away. Seems like my wedding is the one and only thing I actually want to stay on top of. Wish I could feel that way with the weight loss. Ugh. Just….ugh.

I get so discouraged, and ridiculously infuriated with myself sometimes. I just wish this were easier. I guess if it were, everyone would be a size two…I don’t know. And it’s not even that I want to be super skinny. I just want to be “fit.” I want to feel like I’m in shape, a shape other than ROUND! I want to be solid…if that makes sense. I would be satisfied with getting down to a size 10/12. Right now, I’m a size 18/20. Not good at all. Blah. If anyone has any words of encouragement or advice, I would be eternally grateful. I have to kick this thing into gear. I want to lose at least twenty pounds before the wedding, and I think I can do it. I just need someone else to believe in me I guess…

    Let’s do it together! I’d love to lose more weight, but am lacking motivation right now, too!

    You really have to makeup your mind to do it for yourself.

    Make little goals on the way to the wedding date. Like I am going to work out X hours per week. Or I am going to shoot for running Race for the Cure in November. Little goals definately help. I still have to always be setting goals for myself.

    What is your biggest challenge?

    If you get the food in check, the rest will fall into place. It’s all about what you eat.
    It’s about 10% genetic, 10% exercise, and 80% of what you eat.

    I’m here for you!

      The hardest thing for me is the eating. The exercise can be a challenge sometimes, but not as much as the eating. I just can’t seem to get it together.

      I think you’re right about setting the little goals. I like the sound of that and I think it will work best for me right now.

      Thanks for being here for me!! I really appreciate it!

      And Kristi, we can do it together! I think that would really help me as well!

        Eating is my biggest downfall, too….namely, soda. With two kids getting up at night, I need the caffeine and don’t like coffee. Sigh. 🙂 Let’s do it!

    Well I have an exercise goal you can do!!! I may be moving soon, I heard you can get great exercise from lifting your friends crap and moving it. Especially boxes, I heard those are the best when trying to exercise. 🙂 🙂 🙂

    On a serious note. Trust me girl, I have been in the same boat with you for how long now? I started this with you what over two years ago? It’s a constant battle, I choose easy quick foods because I am to lazy to do healthy cooking, counting, measuring etc after work and school is all said and done. I am so0o0o0o determined that when I move *probably in about 9 days* that I will not be bringing any crap food into my new house. Only healthy foods. I need to keep tons of fruit on hand and grab that out the door instead of chick-fil-a or whatever. My problem isn’t necessarily having horrible foods at my house as it is now, its just that I rarely eat at home. I always eat on the run.

    So I think this should be a challenge we should do together: Pick a length of time (week, two weeks, month whatever) that we are NOT allowed to eat food we did not prepare ourselves for our lunches at work. I am not going to say “no eating out period for a month” or something bc thats not realistic. But to say no eating out for the food we eat on our lunch breaks…. I think that’s doable. Are you in?
