Dreams Coming True

I use to have weight loss blogs at other places, and the couple people who support me every day sort of stopped reading and it made it hard for me to believe that they were actually there to support. To those who have read and commented already, thank you. I hope to keep you with your blogs too and give the best advice I now.

Thursday night I went to a buffet with my sister, and I was very proud of myself because I had 3 plates of food and a bowl of soup. Usually I overflow plates and just keep eating, you know, like getting your money's worth. This time, my plates had a lot of space between the foods, so I'm proud of myself because it would probaby be a total of one plate almost with barely any space but not overflowed.

It's amazing to hear everyone's stories and to see how people are trying to change their lives and the lives around them. I really hope I can pull myself together and see progress on the scales, or better yet, on me. I can only hope that I have done something right this week and have lost something, anything. I also hope to get use to using the diet and workout trackers.

So, I feel that I shoud put a story out about my life. I should have done it on my first one, but here I go. My whole life I have been overweight. My mom made a good point last year, if I had kept up with the intensity of my sports and just cut back on eating, I wouldn't be here now. On my mom's side I have diabetes, on my dad's side heart problems. My overweight body is just asking for a short life. My dad, being worried about me, wants me to get surgery. I'm 50-50 on it, so we made a deal. If I do not lose 40 pounds by May 30th, I am to get surgery. I was on a good track the first three weeks, I lost 4.4 pounds. Then, I found out my dog was sick, and within a week he passed away. Mainly, three weeks of hard work was gone in two weeks, and I am back at square one. Last week I managed to lose .8 pounds, so I have 39.2 pounds to lose in about 16 weeks. Now, I need to try to eat right and get lots of exercising to do to hopefully pull good numbers next week. I currently live with my boyfriend's family. It's hard eating healthy here because they rarely shop for healthy food and usually grab fast food or other foods to go. If I can lose 40 pounds in this house hold, then I can do anything! Luckly, I have a change to try out living on my own for 2-3 weeks at the end of March. My grandparents are going away and I'm babysitting their puppy. Since the puppy's use to sleeping with someone at night, I'll probably be having 90 % of my meals there, and that means I could get back into cooking, exercising, and etc. Yes, it will probably be expensive buying food for that long, but if I can just get myself back into fruits and veggies, I think I can do a lot better.

I think I really need to sit down and think hard of a game plan. I have hope that if I just try to eat more portion sizes instead of randomly eating things, I can lose weight. The first two weeks of the new year, I lost 2.5 pounds, and that was on a cruise! I only used a midnight buffet once, and I was very cautious of what I was eating. I need to look more at what I'm intaking, and try super harder on exercising.
