....about the weight loss ticker at the top of my blog....well, here's the scoop.
I recently took a picture of myself for a scrapbooking challenge on Tally. I did NOT like what I saw. I knew my clothes had been getting tighter, but I didn't really realize how bad it was until I saw that picture. Then, at my mom's house a few days later, I weighed myself.
And was completely shocked.
So, I know I've mentioned my largeness before, but now I intend to DO something about it! For 30 days, I'll follow the CEA-HOW food plan of NO sugar and NO starch. Not even beans, peas, corn, rice....NO starch AT ALL. Day 30 will be on St. Patrick's Day! After that, I'll add in the starchy vegetables, but continue NOT eating anything with flour or sugar. Seriously, people, I've been following this plan for 4 days now and I'm down 9 pounds and feel awesome. More energetic. Clear-headed. I think either the carbs, or the over-processing of "convenience" foods were really effin' up my system.
And since I strongly believe that no weight-loss journey can be completed without a little exercise, that's something else I've been doing every day. For 30 minutes. A brisk walk outside, following along with the insanely happy and fit aerobics instructors on my TV, or even doing sit-ups and leg lifts. Just MOVING. My goal is to get an exercise bike, since the 30-minute walk I took Tuesday morning gave me some monster blisters. Yeah, I'm outta shape. But I don't intend for it to stay that way for long.
Finally, I'm taking charge. And it feels GREAT!
This is my BEFORE picture....
I'd love to know if you're taking a similar journey, so we can encourage and support one another! Even just to share exercise or recipe ideas. Let me know, and have a happy Thursday! :)
