I need to lose some weight. There, I said it.
My dress doesn't fit. There, I said that, too.
This weekend I visited my dress (and my mom, too). I wanted to try on my dress with my shoes and other accessories. Needless to say, the dress was TIGHT. Like, tighter than when I got it back in June. So tight that sitting or bending was a huge no-no.
If you were to see me in person I'm sure you would say that I definitely do not need to lose weight. I'm 5'5" and 128 lb. For me, that's a lot. That's what I weighed back during my 2nd and 3rd years of college. But that was beer weight. This? Is lazy-ass shitty-eating weight. And I simply cannot weigh that much if I expect to get into my wedding dress.
So I'm going to make some changes. I have a severe carb addiction that I'm hoping to kick. I can't (and won't) eliminate carbs from my life completely, but I know I'm eating too many of them. I'll have to get over my hatred for veggies and force them down. Portion control has never been a problem for me, but there is always room for improvement. I've already cut out regular pop and I only drink 1 can of Diet Coke per day. And the biggest step I'm hoping to take is...dun dun dun...working out. Ew. I abhor working out. When I was in college I walked EVERYWHERE. And Athens, OH is full of hills, so I was walking a few miles every day, up and down hills, with heavy books. So Josh and I are going to start Jillian's 30 Day Shred:
We watch The Biggest Loser every Tuesday so I'm expecting a lot of yelling from Miss Jillian. Gah she scares me. But I *think* I'll be able to handle it, and with Josh doing it right along with me, we should be good to go.
I haven't decided if I'll be tracking my progress on here or what. I need to be held accountable, though. Ideally, I'd also like to find food blogs or sites that focus on healthy eating. Any suggestions?
Here goes nothing!
