look at that first shot of the back-end! Goodness to Betsy! And the only reason I’m smiling in the second shot is because so many people in their befores look miserable, I didn’t want to look that way, even though I should be feeling that way. I’m hoping I can slim down and do this B-town t-shirt some honest to good justice, let’s watch and see as the days go by.
So over the past few years I seem to fluctuate anywhere from 165 to 183ish. I think 183 has been my tops-ish. Used to be at one time 160 was my tops, then 170 and so on…..geesh. January of 2013 I started my weight at 165 and from there just went up and up with an occasional very short-lived down. In 2012 I ate really, really healthy for 6 weeks straight, no sugar or processed and I lost 20 pounds. I was so proud of myself. I tend to just fall back to comfortable no thinking sort of lifestyle which always, always leads to more weight on my (small) frame. I’m 5’ 4” and I have sort of small feet, and hands and a tiny head, my body should all match up. When my feet begin to hurt, like really really hurt, then I know things are really wrong. I get up and limp around like I’m more like 85 rather than 43. I also know if I just shed less than 8 pounds my feet will feel better. My goal this month is to get rid of 5 pounds. A small attainable goal. I’m going to watch my calorie intake and move more, I’m going to drink a little more water. How is that for CHANGE. I hope I can share my positive change all year with whoever is interested. I get so encouraged by my friends and family who support me in my ventures. I’m not proud of these (before) pictures. They were a wakeup call, especially the one from behind, holy WOW, somewhat of a wide load. I mean if you cover the bottom half of me you can see I’m meant to be smaller. So here we go. I will only do status updates at the beginning of each month.
Things I hope will change
The pain in my feet will go away
My skin will heal
My sleep will improve
My energy will increase
Let’s see if these things begin to CHANGE. I love my new word, the possibilities are endless. It’s up to me to make better choices.
If you want to see a brief history of my weight I posted about it a while back HERE.
Now some images from the New 70D!!!
