I have struggled with my weight my whole life. So, trying to lose weight is not a new thing for me to do. But since I've had Icyle, I just can't seem to stay on track. I will lose weight and then gain some back, then lose some more, then gain some back... I am still losing, just not nearly as quickly as I would like to be.
And I know the reason... I love to eat. And I don't think this is a horrible thing, I just think I need to be choosing the right things to eat. Like maybe instead of eating cookies, I should be eating apples. I think the key to me losing weight is eating more fruits and veggies... but for some reason these arn't the things I choose to eat.
So, I talked to my mom, who also wants to lose some weight, and we decided we would have a friendly compitition to see if we can motivate each other to lose weight. Not sure what the "prize" will be, but for me, just bing able to fit back into my old clothes shoud be motivation enough. Should be, but it obviously isn't since I'm not losing weight.
So, anyways, today, I am starting a new chapter... turning over a new leaf... starting over... I am really going to make some changes today and I AM going to lose weight and be back into my clothes by Christmas. That gives me 3 1/2 months (roughly) to lose at least 20 lbs.... but over all I am hoping to lose 50-60 lbs by next summer.
So, if you have any suggestions on how to lose weight faster... tips, healthy recipes, things that motivate you, etc.. let me know! Any and all help I can get I am sure can only help me on this weight loss journey!
