Having always been pleasantly plump (and sometimes, unpleasantly so), this is a lifelong battle for me. I think that now that I have something to work on that is a result of this plumpness, I can finally turn and look this problem in the face. This has not been an easy thing to do.
I'm not going to go into specifics. I think I'm finished being depressed about this situation... at least, I am for now. I have a feeling this is going to be a rollercoaster of a challenge.
For the past three days, I've been using myfitnesspal.com to track all the things I put into my mouth, and all the exercise I do. First observations?
- I ate way too much (but no surprise there).
- I eat a lot of sugar, mostly in the form of fruit.
- Losing two pounds a week is a lot more work than I thought it would be.
Today, I'm tired, but I did get a Jillian Michaels workout and a 45-minute dog walk in. So far, not bad. I'm hoping it'll get easier.
For now, I'll just have a little nap here on the couch after I eat my cup of raw turnips... which, by the way, are only 36 calories...
