I am going to start this blog help keep me accountable and to give me a way to express and "journal" my thoughts. I am going to try and blog on a regular basis and make a new habit. This might be a little bit of rambling, so please bear with me.
First up... Weigh In Wednesdays.. Every Wednesdays I'll blog my weight and my thoughts about it.
Today I weighed in at 233! This is my first step (of many) towards being healthy.
A little weight history to start off. I have always been a "bigger" girl. I am 5"1 so its hard to hide any weight on this body. On and off since about 16 or 17 I have had moments where I make little changes towards losing weight. I'll go for a while where I only drink diet (clearly better then regular pop :/) or walking extra during the week. I'll do that for a couple weeks and then just give up. I was diagnosed with PCOS (Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome) when I was about 12 years old. That's for another post, but I tend to let that be an excuse as to why I cant lose weight. Not my eating habits or lack of excerise of course..
Last March I went to a new PCOS Specialist and he mentioned weight loss surgery...what??? I never thought that was me.. I always thought that was a "last resort".. that shocked me. Yet at 5"1 I weighed in at 243... For those at home, that's morbidly obese. I just never thought of myself that way.
So I joined Myfitnesspal (add me! sonyaewagner) and started officially counting calories and exercising. I started the C25k and doing Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred. I did great in the beginning. I logged everything and exercises on a regular basis. I got down to about 215 in August of 2011. Then I stopped and slacked off the last year. Usually weighing in around 228-235. I have been feeling pretty down lately and recently joined a Facebook group which is a tremendous help and pushing me back towards my journey of being healthy and fit. There is a challenge for the month of October to do Jillian Michael's workout every.single.day. On day three and loving it.
Anyways that's my long drawn out post.. I'm sure the first of many.
Thanks for reading.
