I've had two children.
Therefore, due to a penchant for weight gain, I'm a rather heavy girl.
I carry my weight all over, as well as posses an ability to dress myself to look thinner, so I dont really look it. (I've always won guess-your-weight midway games)
But I'm increasingly (over years, that is,) becoming less able to dress myself to hide it.
Thus, this year is the year of the weight loss. (what better time for new year resolutions than april?)
I know it'll be hard, and I'm focusing on the long-term goal of being healthy. I'm meeting resistance in the food catergory though...being the only girl in the house doesnt lend itself well to a more vegetarian diet. (I dont want to go all veg...but certainly would like to incorporate more into our meals...) But the main thing I am attempting is to get rid of a majority of processed foods. which means..I have to grocery shop because the husband always brings home things like frozen pizza and hotdogs..
Hardest personal thing: snacking. I live for snacking on anything. I can add excersicing (courtesy of the Wii and awesomely nice weather), but oh, how I miss snacking.
Anyways, my goal, weight-wise, is to be around 180 lbs by the end of the year. Thats a little less than 2lbs a week. Overall, my ideal weight is 165lbs.
But really, it's all about health.
