No, you’re not reading the title wrong. Yes, I did a series of these posts last fall, but honestly I fell off the bandwagon, and instead of picking up where I left off, it’s just easier to start again. Since I forgot to post last Monday, I’m just starting where I’m currently at.
I decided to get serious about losing a few weeks ago when I realized just how much I’ve been using my weight as a protection against people. I don’t want to be that person anymore. Unlike last fall, I’m not trying to do this all on my own. I’ve actually joined a weight loss program, and it’s requiring a lot more accountability than just doing blog posts. The first week was rough, I did gain, but it wasn’t even a pound so I can’t be too upset. I did, however, lose four pounds over this last week. As of right now, here’s what my loss looks like:
3/9/13: First Check~110.3 lbs to go
3/16/13: Week 1~110.6 lbs to go (I gained? How?)
3/23/13: Week 2~106.8 lbs to go (Yay! I lost! I bought The Hobbit to celebrate!)
I don’t have mugshots for tonight. Still trying to figure out where to take them in my house. I don’t have the room available to me that I had in my dorm room. I’ll figure out something by next week, though, so I can update ya’ll on what I’m looking like.
One thing I’m trying this time is focusing on losing 10 lbs at a time. 110 lbs is really overwhelming and can seem quite impossible. I plan to reward myself when I reach each 10 lb goal with a new movie. When I reach 25, 50, & 75 lbs, I’ll be rewarding myself with seasons of my favorite tv shows. Right now, I’m making my way towards Skyfall. In order to afford this, I’m taking the money that I’d normally put into the work vending machine or fast food drive-thru and setting it aside. Six more pounds and Skyfall is mine!
