Turning it around
Thanks to my friend Lindsey for finally getting my big butt moving in the right direction. We started logging on My Fitness Pal 2 weeks ago and when I first weighed I was up to the whopping weight of 240 and really getting depressed about it (read previous posts). This morning, not even 2 weeks in I'm down to 234! I'm so happy the scales have finally dropped and I really haven't done all that much differently. I'm so happy to see that they are finally moving in the right direction. Now I've just got to keep the momentum going. The thing about logging is that it really makes you think twice about eating something you know you shouldn't. But I haven't deprived myself all that much. I'm just trying to eat better, more fruits and veggies, drink more water and get a little bit of exercise in. At first I wanted to start jogging, but that wasn't happening so I just decided to briskly walk 15-30 minutes a day. My legs hurt really bad at the beginning but now they are used to it. I need to be more consistent about it but hey it's a start right! And I have to say that I love MFP. The bar code scanning thingy is so awesome. Just point, shoot and log. That's it! And they have almost every food known to man on that thing so it's really easy to find what you are looking for. Anyway, just wanted to write that I'm in a much better mood this morning (minus the pink eyes! UGH) to see the scales dropping and so happy for the encouragement!!
