I was thinking today. Thinking about things that helped me lose weight (this is going to be a few posts so it's not too long)
In The Beginning
Start off by being so disgusted with yourself you just can't stand it anymore.
Back in "Girl Scout Cookie Season" I bought about 6 boxes of cookies from a co-worker. I kept them at work so I wouldn't have to share with my family. I'd eat about a sleeve a day while sitting at my desk. DISGUSTING (but tasty!).
Yes I know.
Have to get your wedding ring CUT OFF because it's too tight and you're afraid your finger is going to fall off.
Have several friends all losing a lot of weight using Lose It or My Fitness Pal. I have a childhood friend that is very like me as far as losing weight and gaining it goes. I saw her a few times and she was losing so much weight and looking awesome. She was using My Fitness Pal, which didn't work on my phone so of course I couldn't do it on there (I had an old iPhone that couldn't update enough to run the program.) I COULD have done it online but didn't think of that.
I also have another friend, Dee that was using Lose It and had sent me an invite and I ALREADY had that app on my phone from some previous attempt at losing weight. Dee LOVES to talk calories and food. It's like playing a shopping game with her with what we can get for the least amount of calories. She totally sparked my interest because I was feeling like a fat cow from eating all those cookies and she and the other friend were making this all look so easy!
I had just had my 38th birthday. And, let's face it, those pictures are BAD.
Give in and go weigh yourself after NOT weighing yourself for A REALLY LONG TIME.
Be totally disgusted once again and start using LOSE IT immediately.
