This. I feel that I was meant to be overweight to go through the journey of weight loss.
and then i realize that it’s because this whole journey has made me that much of a stronger person. And when it’s over, I will have done something that I have thought to be impossible. And I guess that’s pretty remarkable.
YES YES YES YES YES!!! I’m slowly becoming stronger each day.
So my grandmother took me out to breakfast today. I’m on Day 2 of the 3-Day Diet so I had one egg, over medium with one slice of white toast, no butter, and black coffee with like, 4 packets of Equal. (haha) I didn’t have any grapefruit at home, so I made two cups of cucumbers, mixed with 1 stalk of celery, cut up, with salt and pepper, and I’ve been snacking on it since I got home. (Only 30 calories, and it’s a good all-day snack!)
My grandmother and I went to Wrentham Village and she went shopping, then we went to Job Lot (kind of like a RI version fo Big Lots, but smaller), and bought me two pairs of sweatpants. Then she took me back to the house so she could change, and surprised me with a 3-month gym membership! So we came back to my house so I could change and then off we went!
SO I just came back from the gym…my first day, so I didn’t expect much.
BUT. I did a half hour on the treadmill on 3.0 and then inclined it to 5.0 and went up to 3.5, then gradually worked my heart rate back down and then did a full workout of my upper arms and chest…with the assistance of the lovely (yet grumpy) gym guy.
I got up to 80-90lbs on the weights, which, I’m not saying is good, but was MUCH better than I expected! Needless to say, I’m pretty freaking happy.
Basically we developed a schedule where we go every weekday and then I’ll be going for yoga on Saturdays. My 3-month membership only cost $50 because I’m a student and…get this. THE CLASSES AT THIS GYM ARE FREE IF YOU’RE A MEMBER!
So right now, I’m eating a
very late lunch of a boiled egg and slice of toast, both sprinkled with garlic pepper and a tiny bit of salt, with the rest of my cucumbers and celery, and pounding down a glass of water.
All in all, today was a super productive day. If most days continue like today, I’ll be talking to a recruiter by next year! 140lbs,
fuck off, you’re no longer welcome here! : )
