Well welcome all who are intrigued enough to read this. Hopefully this will help me lose the weight I need. I’m starting this journey by myself and well these extra 40 lbs of crap! In the end it will be myself and some cute bikini…*wink*wink*. About 6 years ago, I was in a wonderful place…5’3″, 120 lbs loving life and candy….(mmmm candy…crap). Things happen, people get older, Big Macs go on sale for a $1…and wham bamm thank ya m’am here my big behind is. My journey really wasn’t even that bad until about 3 months ago when I started a new medication with a “weight gain” side effect…should have said “bring on the big girl” instead. 20lbs in 3 months…good lawd! Hide the bathing suits cause this one just ain’t coming out in them. Don’t get me wrong, all women are beautiful. Women with curves are beautiful…there are some 250# women that I think are gorgeous and would love to look like, instead I look like Wilma the whale on a surfboard. *ONCE AGAIN, LAST WARNING..The visuals I have are of myself and only myself…(don’t forget, you read the disclaimer at the top!) I don’t think I need to be this stick thin super model….please…I’m barely tall enough to even ride certain rides, so trust me the runway is not a dream. I just want to be comfortable. Toned may be a good word. Hell….I really just want to look down and see my feet and not some hill protruding out of me. So here I am….taaa daaaa…..baring mind, body (even the extra I don’t want) and soul. I will fill you in on the good, the bad, and the fat.
About 2 weeks ago I started getting up every morning and walking over to the next neighborhood and walk around and around and around for about 45 mins…almost 4 miles. Now, let me tell you how this works. I get up at 530…hello street lights. I walk out my back door, past the building behind my house (this is to get to the neighborhood) the first shop in the building….you guess it….Mary FREAKEN Lee donuts. What. the. hell. Be strong Girl, be strong. So I keep going. Get to the end of the building…SNAP Fitness. That’s right folks, I live next door to the damn gym!!!! *Sigh* But I feel like I need to lose weight just to go to the gym…what the shit is that?? Off to the neighborhood….round and round we go….k….let’s go home…back past the gym…screw you people and your air condition….past Mary Lee’s….mmmm….donu….dammit Girl keep walking! Back to the house full of sweat, hunger, and dreams. Every. damn. day.
Ok, I’ll admit it… I am usually the hand over the diet pills skinny bitch at GNC, type of person. Honestly, hell I still am that person. BUT I am adding exercise. Right now I am taking Green Tea Extract with Fat Burner. Don’t judge me. I’m sure it’s not healthy but neither is me strangling the skinny girl next to me eating a Big Mac…mmk? Now, so far I take 4 a day as instructed. I take 2 around 6am and 2 more at 1pm. If you are sensitive to caffeine, DO NOT take 2 in the evening…you will be bouncing off the walls when it’s time to go nighty night. Trust me. I get at least 45 minutes of cardio a day, and I do try my best to count my calories.
