The time has come for me to get rid of this excess weight I have hanging around on my body. How much you say? Well I would like to get rid of 40 lbs. Yes 40. That is A LOT! But it's my own fault. I am an emotional eater. I don't just eat whatever is around, I eat sweets. Cookies, candy, non diet pop, and anything else with sugar in it.
Last year (January) at work we had a "Biggest Loser" competition. Those who decided to partake had to pay $25. There was an initial weigh in on the day the money was due and then a weekly weigh in every Friday. The first week I lost 5lbs. After that my weight steadily dropped I was in the lead of every week. I used the help of a website to keep track of every single little thing I was eating and it calculated everything for me. By the end of the 8 weeks I lost 12 lbs! I lost the highest percentage of weight and won $275!!! I did good for a few months keeping the weight off but then something happened. I was depressed about some stuff for a while last year and steadily ate my way into gaining 20 lbs. If I could kick myself I would. After losing that 12 lbs I felt better. I was happier. I could fit in my clothes better. I can still wear the same clothes but they are pretty snug. And just remembering how they use to fit pisses me off.
SO...as of Monday I have started my new eating ways again. It's not fun of course but I know that it will work. In order for me to stay on track with my eating I have to eat basically the same.thing.every.day. Here is a short rundown of what I have to eat...
Breakfast = Special K Berries (or WalMart brand) cereal OR Oatmeal
Lunch = 45 calorie/slice whole grain bread with Miracle Whip Lite and 1 package Carl Buddig lunch meat, Baked Lays, Fruit, Veggie.
