My initial comment on this blog needs to be that I am not doing this blog in order to throw a pity party or to get all my friends to say things like, "you're not fat," or "you're beautiful mamas," or whatever.
I'm doing this to keep me accountable on my journey to a skinnier me!!
That being said, let's get down to it, shall we?
So, my weight's been ALL over the place during my nearly 31 years of life.
|Mommy's lil' porkchop due to me being allergic to breast milk, soy milk and formula. |
Dad says the "special food" the docs prescribed was basically sugar water.
Hmmm, wonder why I'm addicted to sweets, lol.
It was pretty much "uphill" from here for a loooong time.
It's not something that makes me look down on myself or something I use to get attention.
But, it is something that concerns me and something that I'd like to change.
I know I have power over these two things:
* What I put in my mouth (sounds dirty, lol)
* How much I exercise
If I govern myself via self control, I should be able to make the right choices in the above named areas to decrease my weight.
As of right now I don't have a "weight loss goal."
What I do have is a general mantra, Make small changes increasingly over time and see results.
It's taken me many years to gain the weight, so it's not coming off in lightning speed. More importantly, I want to make changes that I can stick to for the rest of my life.
