I'm Too Freakin Fat For This LOL!

Saturday, November 20, 2010

I find myself thinking that a lot these days. I get winded SO easily, and I am only 24... It shouldn't be like this. There are two sets of stairs in my house... a set leading up to the bathrooms/bedrooms and a set leading down to the garage. So while doing chores like cleaning, I am going up stairs to round up the laundry... down those stairs, then down the other stairs to start the laundry (back and forth up and down the stairs to put in dryer and later take them out of the dryer...) up and down the stairs to take out trash, bring home groceries etc etc. BUT THEY ARE JUST STAIRS! It's not climbing Mount Everest or anything! I am pretty sure my 67 year old grandma could out run me at this point.

When I bring home a ton of groceries and find myself about ready to pass out, I say to myself damn, I need a husband so he could help me with this, that'd make it easier. But eff that lol, all I need is to lose 100 pounds, and I wouldn't need anyones help;). I have said countless times how sick I am of being fat, so I'm not even going to go there this time...But I AM so sad I have let so many years slip by...

I am so overwhelmed at the idea of trying to lose at the VERY LEAST 80 pounds (in reality much more)... so the only focus I'm going to have right now so I don't freak myself out is to lose 20 pounds by Feb 1st. So here goes nothing!

    You will get there, one day you will be running around house and stop and go wow I just did all that and not even tired. I like the small goals not that 20 lbs is by any means a small goal! Its a LOT I know I have to pick up 20lb bags of dog food all the time.

    When I started out, I looked at losing each 10lbs. Like getting from 280 to 270, and so on and it made it a LOT easier. I didn't look at it as losing 137lbs.

    Also, look at the stairs as a good thing - a form of exercise to help you. I am finding interesting things each day, that tell me I burn calories (I stand up at work for 9hrs, that's 565 calories!).

    If I can do it - so can you!

    Set yourself 10% goals- lose 10% and only focus on that, no more. It's easier when you can see it in small chunks. Also try the healthy eating before introducing exercise- that way you'll more likely to stay on track rather than push yourself to the limit then lose motivation as you pushed too hard

    If I can lose 181lbs anyone can believe me-I'm a former couch potato whose only exercise was walking to the car or up the stairs to bed!!
