I am currently about 70 pounds overweight and very out of shape. I have been off and on dieting and exercising for the last 5 years and I am hoping that I will finally be able to stick what I'm doing if I keep a journal.
I gained all of my weight by eating a lot of fast food. I lived alone and was working 2 jobs plus school so ate out a lot. I gained 60 pounds in 7 months and now have been struggling to get the weight off. Mainly because I don't stick to my diet/exercise plan. Now my life has settled down some so going to give this another try.
I have just cut coffee (which was more just creamer) and pop out of my diet. I haven't had either one in a little over a week. I do not cook a whole lot so I have been eating a lot of TV dinners, 100 calorie snacks, and occassionally fast food. This week, I am also cutting all of those out of my diet and replacing them with fruits, veggies, and healier meals. I have already bought my snacks and I have them portioned in snack bags with the calorie amount written on the bag.
I haven't exercised a lot yet. My job is sedentary so I don't get a lot of exercise throughout the day, however we got a dog last week and I have been taking him for 2 walks a day. I will be staring Insanity or TapOut on Monday. I have attempted them previously but never got past week 1.
I know the diet will be hard and the exercises will be painful but I am going to stick to it this time because I know anyone can read this and I don't want anyone to think that I gave up.
So...Here We Go!!!
