Weight Loss Wednesday...on Thursday

I have been struggling with my body for a while now. I haven’t worked out consistently for almost 2 years now and I’m starting to be able to REALLY tell. I’m not gaining weight but my muscle density has changed and just the way I’m put together is changing. Overall I’m not that unhealthy…we don’t eat out a lot, I cook most of our own meals at home, but I do sit all day at work and then when I get home I sit more, I also need to cut the sodas and excess of that nature. I don’t feel good about myself and I know that I need to be working out just to stay healthy. Even though I haven’t “gained” weight I would still like to get to a more comfortable weight for myself.
 
This isn’t a pity post and yes I know to most people I am skinny but this isn’t for everyone else this is for myself and for ME a comfortable and healthier weight that makes me feel good is 130 give or take. Right now my weight is 141 and I plan on losing 10-11 pounds and toning myself back up in one month. So last night after gorging myself on McDonalds and walking a few miles with the dogs I had had it with myself. I put on the most unflattering outfit and told Lincoln to take some pictures of me that will help me hold myself accountable. What I found when I looked at the camera afterwards really disgusted me. I couldn’t believe the way I looked…and this is me not holding anything back…there was no sucking in, no anything just me standing there like I would any other time. YIKES! If that isn’t motivation I don’t know what is. My main problem areas are like most women…the region from right under my boobs down to my knees which pretty much amounts to stomach, butt, and thighs. These areas are the target areas that I really want to see some change in but toning the rest of my body will be awesome too.
 
So following along with Ms. Kristen and many others…I’m posting this to hold myself accountable and I will post every Wednesday until my goal is met or just until I feel like I’m where I want to be.  I took my first set of pictures on the 19th which just so happens to be 1 month from our couples get-a-way to Oklahoma. This is perfect timing and gives me something realistic to look forward to. 


Overtime=Overweight: Dolly (Pardon) had the right idea when she sang “9 to 5”. In one study, women who worked 35 hours or more a week were more likely to pack on pounds over the course of two years. The average gain was about 6 percent of body weight- nine pounds for a 145 pound woman!
