I am very unhappy with my weight.
Whew I feel so much better just writing that.
Allen and I started a "diet" on February 27th. I know that's really not that long ago but that cute butthead has lost 10 lbs already. He has an active job while I have a sitonmybuttalldayandanswerphones job so I know that plays a large role in it. But I want to feel successful and I'm unsure that what I'm doing right now is going to give me the results I want. I want to ultimately lose 30 lbs but would probably feel way better if I could just get 20 lbs off.
Right now we are taking these pills called Calotren that are a weight loss aid and they're all natural. With them it is suggested to cut out white starches and have an empty stomach 3hours before bedtime. I've been doing both of these things pretty religiously and I'm not seeing any results. Unfortunately neither of us took our measurements beforehand so I don't know if there's even any difference in inches either.
I'm not fond of working out but I know I need to incorporate some kind of exercise into my day. I will be working on this more and attempting to get over my laziness when I get home at night now that the sun is out longer in the evening.
A group of people at work are going to start doing the South Beach diet on Monday and I'm thinking of joining in. We would do a system where one person is assigned for each day to bring lunch. That person cooks the previous night and brings in lunch for the group. So you are essentially only cooking one time during the week but you have the specific dietary meal for each day.
A few people have also suggested Weight Watchers but I'm not really willing to pay the extra money it requires. Give me some input if you've actually tried and succeeded with Weight Watchers. Or with the South Beach diet. I'm all ears.
I hate to admit that the main reason I don't take or show a lot of photos of myself is because I'm very self conscious of my weight. I used to be way more confident and very much photo obsessed. Now I would much rather be behind the lens instead of in front of it.
I want to feel beautiful in my wedding dress. I want to actually wear a bikini on my honeymoon.
I plan to modify my diet even more and begin keeping track of what I eat so that I can see the results I desire. I'm serious about losing this extra weight and getting healthy. I know I can do it.
Mind over matter.
