So this is my first Tales from the scales. I will admit it…I am overweight. Alot. If you go by my fat percentage-I am morbidly obese. If you go by the scale-I am 310…ouch. How did that happen?
Well, when my hubby and I met, I was 185 and smokin. Then I got pregnant and I used it as an excuse to eat all the time and stop exercising–which I did for an hour everyday. I gained 60lb. with that pregnancy. I slowly kept gaining. Then I got pregnant. I didn’t really gain alot of weight. I was afraid of just getting too big. Then I got pregnant again–with twins. This time I had to gain weight or else (that is what the doctor said). So now, that gets me to 310…again..ouch.
I don’t mind being overweight. But I am embarrassed to go out in public with how big I am. And my hubby knows I am embarrassed. He says he doesn’t care how big I am but he also knows how much happier I was when I weighed less. He wants me to be happy. I want to be happy. So I guess that is why I kind of started this blog and joined this challenge.
And what am I going to do to get myself back on track…gee…I really don’t know. Maybe:
- Eat less
- Measure what I eat
- Start a food diary
- Exercise everyday
- Get my parent’s kick butt exercise bike (they like to call it their clothes hanger), put it in our living room and go nuts on that sucker
Yea…maybe I could do those things first and go from there. But in the meantime, I think I will go check out the other people who have accepted this challenge. Why don’t you join me!
