The first of many blogs about my fatness. Oh yeah. I said it.
In case you didn't already know, I'm a sparker. What that means is that I identify myself in part by a website I like to frequent and a website that has done great things for me in the past. Its kind of like being a "trekkie" or a "tubie" or something like that. (P.S...I totally just made up tubie...as in youtubie...did you get it? ha ha ha) Only for me - its Sparkpeople.
So, I have some good friends on that sight and we essentially motivate each other to lose weight. Only the thing is that unless you are really feeling it - you yo-yo...which, I hate to have to admit this now....is what I did all last year. Up and down ...up and down.
But at the new year I decided to scare myself straight. So, I got online and read all about Type 2 Diabetes. I'm prone to being diagnosed with it. I had gestational diabetes...I am overweight...I like carbs... And scare me it did.
So - here I am at the end of week one and I lost 4.6 pounds this week! Wooohooo!
How did I do it?
1. I ate right.
2. I exercised daily.
Sheesh. I hate it that those back to the basic methods are the ones that work. But they do.
I checked myself out in the mirror today to see where the "nearly" 5 pounds left from. I'm thinking it was my left foot. Weird, right? But my left foot slipped into my boots much easier today than it did yesterday. And I was wearing thicker socks. (Aren't my powers of deduction stupefying?)
