Over the past 2 weeks I have lost 6lbs. I am hoping that I reach the 260's next week. I have been stuck in the 270's for the past 2 freaking months. It is frustrating as hell. I reached out to a band buddy who recently reached 100lbs lost and asked for her advice. Well, I actually asked her how the hell she did it. She eats approx 1,000 cals per day which are mostly protein and exercises...a LOT! So, I have been following that advice and guess what.....IT WORKS. I am eating 1,000 cals or less per day. Exercising 4-5 days per week, burning approx 600 cals per "exercise day". I restarted with my personal trainer too. I feel good. I am starting to see subtle changes but I still dislike my body. My belly is too flabby, I have a fat apron, I have a shelf butt and I have bat wings. It sucks! People take pictures of me and I hate them. I rarely, rarely ever LIKE a picture of myself. If you are friends with me on FB you will see a million pics of my family and VERY FEW of me. I guess I better start talking to the therapist about my self image. Speaking of therapist. I met with my new therapist last week and I like her. She has experience with emotional eating. Not personal but work experience. She said that she worked at Wellspring in CA. It is a "fat camp" for kids. She let me borrow a book but I haven't started reading it yet. I will, I will....gosh!
I picked the above picture because I just love it and because I need a little help. I have a ROUND face! No matter how thin I am, my face is round. I see women that are overweight but by looking at their face, you can't tell. I am envious of those women. I wish I had a thinner or "less round" face but I do. I hate it. I really hate it! Note to self...mention to therapist.
I am week 3, day 2 of C25k training. It is becoming more difficult but I am hanging in there. I really want this weight to come off and I really want to be able to run a 5k in June. I know I can do this. "I think I can, I think I can". HaHa!
