So today was the first day of our weight loss challenge between me and a few co-workers. I’m hoping that by having a few people to compete with we can all motivate each other, hold each other accountable…all while *hopefully* losing a little weight.
The deal is…every Sunday, we weigh ourselves at work. Our goal is to lose 2lbs a week, not ridiculous and a healthy rate of weight loss. We each put $1 in the pot and whoever doesn’t make their 2lb goal for the week has to put an extra $5 in the pot. Whoever loses 50lbs first wins the entire pot. Money is a good motivator…and I guess being healthy is too.
I’m going to start documenting my successes and my failures on my tumblr.
So, today I weighed in at 225.6lbs. By far the heaviest I’ve been. It’s discouraging…two years ago I went on weight watchers and lost almost 35lbs. I’m so angry at myself for letting it get out of control again. I swore that I would never let myself get over 200lbs…but I did. How can I keep myself motivated? My husband loves me…loves my body…and he’s supportive of whatever I choose to do, but sometimes I wish he’d push me a little…hahaha I’m being ridiculous.
I hope this time around I develop healthier eating habits. I hope I can learn to not rely on food to make me feel better. I don’t want to just lose a weight…I want to reform my life, be healthy AND happy.
I felt sexy so I took a picture.
I am bored. Entertain me.
On Periods: Let’s put this shit to bed right now: Women don’t lose their minds when they have period-related irritability. It doesn’t lower their ability to reason; it lowers their patience and, hence, tolerance for bullshit. If an issue comes up a lot during “that time of the month,” that doesn’t mean she only cares about it once a month; it means she’s bothered by it all the time and lacks the capacity, once a month, to shove it down and bury it beneath six gulps of willful silence.
