|I am the one on the left. This was me most of my life. Probably 155lbs|
I have drastically changed in the past years. And in my defense, I had some major/tragic events happen in my life that made me so sad and hate myself so much. Food was my friend and food made me happy. Food never told me I was ugly, stupid or not good enough. Food (for a small time) made me feel full and safe. What I was doing was slowly killing myself which at this point in life I really didn't care. But I was
TIRED DONE being a victim!!!! I also finally have absolutely wonderful angels that are some of the best friends you could ever ask for and I thank God every day for Danielle, Smash and Megan! And for Vickie who always lets me know how to make me feel better every day at work!! She is a wonderful woman and she will be my photographer throughout this process :) They have shown me how friends are suppose to support and love you. I never have to act like I am something I am not with them. And I finally found a man that loves and respects me for me. He acts treats me like a person not like a possession or just someone that is suppose to be seen but not heard. And he asked me to marry him and I couldn't be happier about that either :) I also have finally decided to stop blaming my mother for hating me. She doesn't hate me she just knows that deep down I am not happy with how I am. Which I am not but I have tired to put on a happy face but it is time for a major change.

Ok, now do not get me wrong, I am no longer that sad girl with cheese fries as her best friend anymore. I am so much happier but I still have to deal with the battle of losing the weight. SO, what I have decided to do is tracking my weight loss (probably some weeks gain) every Thursday. I am going to call it Transformation Thursday. I will weigh in every Thursday report my weight and what I have done that week and my feeling about the week as well. I am not going to make this sappy and sad but I want to try to uplift anyone else that is going through this same. I am also going to keep everything happy and fun because this is an exciting time :) So here we go!
This was last Friday night when our group went to a dueling pianos dinner. I was about 252 there. My arms are out of control but that scarf is amazaballs!!!!
Ok so this week I have been doing the Military Diet that Danielle's, wonderful finance, Jason told me about. The Military Diet look it up if you are interested. I have seen some amazing results. And you get to have ice cream every night!! I should have taken a picture of my breakfast because it was wonderful. A slice of cheddar cheese (favorite), 5 saltine crackers and an apple. Perfection!!!
|This is me this morning. I weighed in at 245.5 this morning and I still have one more day to go. I am very impressed with this diet and happy to already see some results.|
Pounds lost - 6.5
Emotion - Happy and Super excited
Favorite Meal - As I said before, cheddar, apple and crackers for breakfast
Water Count - averaging about 168 ounces daily
Work Out - Not this week sadly gotta start back next week.
|Absolutely love this saying!!!!|
