This isn’t going to be my usual Foodie Friday post. In fact the next few won’t be what you’ve been used to for Foodie Friday. These will be more discussion based post that are based on a few life changes I’ve recently made.
Real talk time (and this is absolutely terrifying for me but here goes!): At my heaviest I weighted 310 pounds. I had told myself I would never see my weight with a 3 at the front…until I did. I purchased my own seat belt extender for airplanes because the “Will I fit?” game was too much. I keep a list of “Reasons Why” so when I need a source of motivation I have one tailored to me.
From April to September I joined Weight Watchers and I played around with the idea of losing weight. In that time I lost 24 pounds but had I been serious it could have been so much more.
About a month ago I got frustrated with my inability to both meal plan and stay within a budget. I bought a one year subscription to eMeals (more on that next week!) and things got easier. Then my husband committed to losing weight and trying for a healthier lifestyle. I cannot tell you how much having a spouse with the same goals helped!
We both now use the Lose It! app and the combination of using a calorie counting app, having a meal planning subscription, and a spouse to keep me accountable has made all the difference! In one week I lost 6 pounds BUT I don’t expect that momentum to last nor do I want it to. Right now my only goal is a healthier lifestyle.
