Ahhhh my 20th entry! I can’t believe I have kept up with this! I can never even keep a diary going for this long. Did you guys notice each entry is the same number as the date? I thought that was neat when I noticed it the other day.
I just got done working out not too long ago. I skipped breakfast again and had a weight watchers meal for lunch then Michael got us Subway for dinner. I treated myself to a black forest ham on flatbread. I like the Subway website because you can put your sub together on there and it tells you how many calories it is. This was my first time getting meat on my sub since I started dieting. Before I just had a veggie sub but both the veggie sub and black forest ham are the Subway guys Jared’s favorites lol.. Both are low in calorie and fat. I know the ham isn’t good because it’s probably processed but I’m not going to beat myself up over something like that at this point.
I have been getting a lot of “how did you do it?” questions about loosing 15 pounds in 2 weeks and the answer is simple really. We all know what we have to do to loose weight. It’s not rocket science. There is no magic pill and there is no method money can buy that will loose the weight for you without exercise unless you get a surgery of some kind. If you look at any weight loss pill I guarantee in the instructions it will say “with exercise” and the results you see you will think it’s the pills working but in all reality it’s not. It’s the exercise with the pills that you are probably seeing the results from. Granted some pills give you herbal nutrients and such but nothing you probably couldn’t buy cheaper at a drug store. Don’t get me wrong I’ve bought into stuff like that and I’m not dishing weight watchers or anything like that. I understand some people need the support of a group to get going. I feel everyone is different and everyone will loose weight in different ways. You just have to find the way that’s best for you and your lifestyle. What it comes down to is will power, strength, confidence, determination and to be free to dream & to never give up until you reach your goal weight. You will have you down days; you just have to learn how to deal with them. I am still a far ways away from where I want to be but I think I’ve gotten off to a good start. Loosing weight is like a mind over matter battle with yourself. You just have to keep telling yourself one thing and making yourself stick to it. Eating lean and green and keeping up an exercise routine is crucial. It’s not like it’s even that bad. I only work out ONE half hour a day! That’s all it takes; don’t over do it. Only do what you feel comfortable with. Anything is better than the way you have been living even it you just start of small and cutting out one thing; your one step closer than you were yesterday. I am so glad I started this a few weeks ago. I can only imagine my old self sitting here beating me up for not having started at all. I am going to keep on going and 5 months from now I don’t want to be sorry!
This helps motivate me so much! I am shocked at the ammount of support!
