so i'm on this journey that seems like it is literally taking fooooooooorever. and to be honest i hate it. ...and i love it. but i more so hate it. but i know i will love the end result which is why i guess i am continuing on. last august is when i conscientiously decided to lose weight. i bought a scale to weight myself and started to consistently go to the gym. over the past 14 months i've lost 27 pounds. which sucks. just plain sucks. especially since i have 80 more pounds to go. right now i'm trying to really pay attention to what works and what doesn't. i have a few things working in my advantage and working that for me, and not against me. one big part is of course food. they say you don't even need to work out to lose weight, you just need to to watch what you eat. so that's where a lot of my focus is right now. among other things. i'm also going to work on setting realistic goals and weighing myself more frequently. my goal is 15pounds for every 12 weeks. and that is what i'm working for. a lot of people have seen a difference, and i'm finally getting rid of clothes. being home last weekend was very rewarding in regards to hearing compliments from people i haven't seen in a good amount of time. i'm also getting compliments from people at work who see me almost everyday. i guess the good news is that i'm trying, and people are noticing my efforts even though the results aren't numerically where i want them to be. so i just wanted to document where i am on this journey thus far. and ways on how i can step things up with the end of the year near.
