Your girl is challenging herself once again.This year is all about trying to transition into healthier habits and I’m starting out April with a DietBet. I’ve participated in some DietBets in the past (a bit unsuccessfully, might I add) both with a friend and without. It’s definitely hard either way. Losing weight is never easy, but effort won’t betray you. It’s time to try again.
I’ve gained a lot of weight this last year and am now the heaviest I’ve ever been. Most of my clothes don’t fit. My looser clothes are tighter. My face shape has changed dramatically. I don’t feel myself and I don’t feel good. I got off my routine of walking and working out and my weight sky rocketed. It hasn’t been fun.
Seeing pictures of yourself really puts things into perspective. Going through snaps from our DC trip was a slight confirmation of what I had been feeling. I really look like a different person. It’s not all about looks. Listen, I’m a fairly confident lady. I’m cute, okay? But I don’t feel cute. I feel very slow, groggy, unhealthy, and very blah.
Today is the official start of the DietBet. I’m doing it with my best buddy, Kim, so we can support each other. I’ll be updating you on how it’s going on facebook and twitter. I’ll also let you know more about my health goals and strategies in the future.
