“No one ever drowned in sweat!”
I have always been a heavy girl. I don’t ever remember not being in “fat” clothes. I always accepted the woman I was and lived with her. After high school I got heavier with the lack of sports in my life. In 2006 I began working for a two-story restaurant and bounced up and down all day working doubles, usually five to six days a week. I was about 225 at the time. In 2008 I got a job at a Doctor’s office where I mostly sat at a desk as receptionist. The weight slowly crept on. I worked on my feet as a medical assistant for about three months and was getting in better shape just by the change in lifestyle.
Then I got married, and retired into the housewife industry where it slowly crept back on. When Hubs got back from his second deployment, we went out to eat all the time. We were exploring our area, eating delicious food at fine dining establishments. Within a month I had gained 10 pounds. I knew it was time to make a change- for good.
Day One of my new life: 7.24.2011
NSV Goal: Jog 4 laps – 1 mile!
Weight goal #1: 29.3 lbs lost
Then 10% of each goal until…
BIG GOAL: somewhere between 150 and 140
