Starting today I'm officially on a take-out food strike. No fast food for me for a long while! I'm also going to change my snacking habits, and try to eat more fruits and veggies. I'm also going to start getting out more. I have a habit of heading for the couch as soon as I get home from work, but now I'm going to try my hardest to do almost anything besides lie down when I get home.
Why am I doing this?
Lately I've been feeling really down; I have no energy, I don't feel pretty and I've been down in the dumps. I used to think that losing weight was a miracle cure that would make me feel beautiful and healthy, but I realize now that there's a lot more to it than that.
I'm 5'2" and I weigh 141 pounds as of last night.
I'm not comfortable when I sit down, I feel too heavy when I walk, and I can't run around like I used to. I'm going to change this right now, and every Wednesday I'm going to do a little health update. I think this might motivate me to stick to it and be good to myself.
Just to be clear, I think that feeling down about yourself and being fat are things that should have nothing to do with eachother. Every shape is beautiful and it's sad if you use size to look down on people or yourself. My adventure in healthy living is not to achieve a certain number on the scale or fit into any little black dresses.
Wish me luck and send me positive vibes! Also, if anyone wants to do this with me, just send me an email and maybe we can turn this into something more fun!
Hugs and poops,
