The Journey starts today – Well its started yesterday but I lost track of time yesterday and didn’t have time to write….So………
I have decided to start a life changing journey.. I am a plus size girl – for honestly all of my life. There has never been a time in my life that I could remember not being a big girl. I have yoyoed so much in my life that I am sick of it. I am sick of having a box of skinny jeans and then when I get to that point having a box of fat jeans.. I’m done with that. So today is the day I decide to change my life. I will not be the girl that can’t fit into anything or has to shop at the plus size area because the other sizes don’t fit.. But for me I’m not going to get surgery.. Have I thought about it.. Yes, would it be something that I would consider doing yes. But I am also a ER nurse so I see all the complications that one in from it. People that have had the surgery say that they didn’t take the easy way out and it was hard, but my opinion is it is the easy way out. Instead of your body naturally shrinking your stomach from not eating so much or eating healthier you chose to have your stomach stapled or cut or cinched like a rubber band. But I am in no place to judge someone and if thats what they need to get on the right track and to be a healthy then so be it.
So For Me Today I start my journey.. There is so many Diet options out there how can you pick or know which one to pick but for me I have done so many I wanted to pick one that was a hole life style change. Something that I know I can pick and stick too.. Each one has so many great benefits – 1. Low carb, its a fast weight loss option but its not the best on my body. I have pains in places that I have not ever had pains. But some other things like my gas issue goes away 2. Weight watchers – Low fat, is more of a life style change as it teaches you portion control due to the point system. I hate hate hate counting points but I love the I have no points left to eat anything else today. So each one has great advantages to it.
Another thing we should talk about is weighing, when do you weigh? Are you a first thing in the morning weigh-er or are you a right before bed weigh-er? and why if you weigh your self right before bed you end up weighing more? It makes no since to me.. It makes no since why but for some reason it does make since..
For me Pinterest has been my friend.. Honestly when has Pinterest not been there for anything I am researching and it always gives me so many great options and advice.. There is so many diet ideas and topics that no matter what you are looking for I can guarantee that you can find it on Pinterest.
This is NOT going to happen over night and I may not always do the right thing or to eat the right food but maybe just maybe one day I will look back and know that I did it.. I got to the weight that I would love to be..and that moment in my life will be one of the top 5 best days of our life. So in the meantime I will keep you all updated and when that day comes trust me I will have pictures to share….
So in looking for some new recipes to go with my new journey I have found some great quotes.. So I hope you find them helpful in your journey.
