When I first moved up north, I weighed 140 pounds. It was the lowest I'd gone since my daughter was born. Before her, I'd weighed in at 115 - 120. Being 5'2", that was a good weight for me.
After I moved up north to Almost Freakin' Canada, the weight gain began. Then of course I got pregnant with my son and watched the scale creep ever higher. Since he was born and I lost the initial burst of baby weight, I have weighed in at a shocking 167 pounds. This puts me on the line of being "obese". Ugh.
So this year now that I am in the city again, I have decided it is time to ditch all things unhealthy. Goodbye bad marriage. Goodbye bad fat. My mission is to lose 30 pounds by the end of 2010.
I started this a couple of weeks ago. Just minor changes. Less ice cream, watch those portion sizes, cut out soda. I dropped my 1% milk for skim. Instead of skipping breakfast I'm eating a cup of Kashi Go Lean Crunch for breakfast.
I also added a weekly trip to the skating rink to my routine. 3 hours of skating. Although this past week I showed up a bit late and left early after a fall. My total skate time was 90 minutes, but I burned a whopping 700+ calories in that time!
For my efforts, I have been rewarded with seeing my scale go down by 5 pounds. :) I'll update at random how I am doing with this adventure.
