A few weeks back I wrote a post called "4 strange reasons why I want to lose weight". Well I didn't have a plan for how I was going to lose the weight... I was just talking about why I want to lose weight. So needless to say after I posted that, no effort was made to get the ball rolling on shedding the pounds.
Last week, I stepped on the scale at my mothers house and was absolutely horrified by what I saw.
Not only have I gained back all 40 lbs of the "baby weight"... I've gained a total of 90 lbs since I met my husband four years ago!! WHAT?!?!? YES!!
My husband has never complained about my weight gain or even mentioned it but a heads up would have been nice. Something soothing and gentle like... "Er, honey, I love you and you're the most beautiful woman I know... but... you're getting pretty fat."
Time to get to work... and fast!!
I've never been this big before and it freaks me out. I was in such denial about my weight gain. See, we don't have a scale and I'm finding that's not really such a good thing. I just told myself, "Oh that dress must had shrunk in the wash... along with everything in my closet..."
So that's why you don't see much about fashion on my blog. I've nothing to wear.
So whatchu gonna do about it?
Last Monday I started a paleo-esqe diet. I cut out grains (pasta and bread), sugar, most dairy, and salt. That's pretty much what my daily diet consisted of... and LOT's of it. So now you see how I got this way? Damn you Pinterest! You an your delicious recipes!! I'll sue you blind for making me fat! Care to engage in a good old fashioned frivolous lawsuit??
So now I'm just waiting for erm... "my aunt" to leave town so I can start bronzing my buns and steeling my abs. This is the second time I've ever gone on a diet and exercise regimen. The first time I became a temporary vegetarian and danced like a wild witch in my bedroom for four hours a day. It worked and I lost 40 lbs in four months. I know this whole diet and exercise thing will work for me again.
Lucky for you, I'm not going to turn this into a health and fitness blog. That crap is boring. But I will give you all updates every now and then on how this is working out for me.
Ninety pounds... :sigh: wish me luck.
