This is important to me. Today I was at the gym at 5 in the morning. We did the first day of a 5K training program (1.25 miles, 25 minutes) and then lifted free weights (upper body) for 35 minutes. I had a BodyWise protein shake for breakfast and lunch, one light snack of cottage cheese and sugar free bread and butter pickles and tonight (hour and a half of shuttling kids) I had a fresco chicken soft taco and bean burrito from Taco Bell (don't judge me). Then tonight a pear for a snack. Always room to improve but better than what it could have looked like.
I am ready to put this out there. At least I think I am. My weight. UGH!! I struggle with posting it but my deepest hope is that if even one person can relate to my situation and can find strength from my journey, then posting a few numbers is worth it. I thought of waiting until I had lost 50 lbs and then stated where I was and just let people do the math but really who am I kidding?? Part of my problem is that I can hide behind clothes and my "pretty face" to hide my real size. So here goes. Hoping by posting this it will be the last time I see these numbers.
And while I am not ready to post a full length picture in a sports bra and spandex...I will post a few pictures from recent days.
Today before work.
