Diary of a fat girl: Day 3

Haven't weighed in yet, that's tomorrow...but I'm really REALLY proud of myself for getting up at 6 this morning to go to the gym before getting ready and heading to Florence to open the store. Yikes!

My workout machine of choice is the eliptical trainer, because it doesn't hurt my ankles or knees, and I still feel like I'm working out. Christopher does the treadmill, but I hate how out of shape I feel when I do that. SO...

The first time I used the eliptical, I did 3000 strides. I PUSHED to get there.
The second time, I did 3500, and was REALLY proud of myself for getting there.
Today my goal was 4,000 in my 30 minutes, and I got to 4,200! Okay...I know that's not a HUGE accomplishment, but's progress!

I'm trying not to be TOO mad at myself that it's Thursday, and the first time I've been to the gym!

In other news, on Saturday (Valentine's day) Christopher and I went to Smith Jewelers and found MY WEDDING BAND! It's BEAUTIFUL! And just so happened to be 50% off! I'm so excited! Now, if only he would decide what he likes so we could buy his...

Oh yeah...and I'm getting married in 99 days. :-D Hallelujah!

Diary of a fat girl: day 1

I'm watching a show on TV right now called "Fat Free Fiances" and I'm actually REALLY enjoying it.

I've decided that it's time. Time for me to be honest with the world, set my goals, and get them out there. Time for me to make a change. (Says the girl sitting on the couch eating an ice cream sandwich and already being grumpy about going to the gym tonight...) may have noticed my weight loss ticker at the top of the page. I weighed in at 201 lbs. on February 6. On February 13, I weighed 195. Progress, right? Well, it was Valentine's day, so I ate a whole bunch of junk!

Anyway...I'm going to be honest about my weight for the first time in a very long time. I'm definitely not the heaviest I've ever been, but I'm not happy with the weight I am now. I go. I'm asking for your help, for your motivation...

My goal is to lose 31 lbs. by the wedding...on May 29. I'll let you know what happens when I weigh in on Friday!
