Confessions of a 'calorieholic'

Hi, my name is Sarah and I'm a 'calorieholic'.

I just can't help it!!!!! In this post I said that I was going to work hard at losing some weight. It's sooooooooo hard!!!!!! Geez!

I keep getting attracted to things that are not good for me and don't help when I'm trying to lose weight. For example; fries (oh yum), pork (smacking lips), Skittles (oh yeah), Bounty (oh my), chicken (mmm - although I've been trying to stick to grilled chicken instead of fried) - the list could go on and on and on.....  

I'm also terrible at following my work out schedule. I've not exercised in about 3 weeks.... I hang my head in shame :-( I've not been feeling well though and exercise was not really going to help me get better - in fact it could have made it worse. I agree that I could have found an alternative that wouldn't be so hard on my body but I didn't - my bad....

Truth is I've never had to fight off weight and I'm discovering things about myself that I did not know before. I had no clue it would be this tough to stay away from good unhealthy food. HELP!!!!!!!!!

Does anybody have any ideas that I could use to shed this weight off and stay away from fried stuff?

Losing it...

I've put on a little weight. I can't help it - it's hard to lose weight when you're happy. Since the wedding in May I've been doing a little exercise here and there but I didn't really like it. I've always been able to gain and lose weight pretty easily. But it seems that when you get married the weight comes to stay!!!!! 

The other day my dad came over to see me at work because he had never been to my workplace. When he saw me he said "You have put on weight!" His expression told me that he was not kidding. He proceeded to give me weight loss tips :) I was grateful that he told me though because it woke me up to reality. That morning I had tried to put on a skirt that I really like and boy oh boy was it tight. I could hardly walk right!!! So I guess God used him to give me a wake up call. And since he has been down this road before he gave me some pretty good tips.

One of my New Year resolutions is to work out three times a week which I've been doing. However, my eating habits were not good at all. I kept telling myself that I should eat healthy food but I had never gotten round to it but when my dad said I had put on a few I got serious!!!!! I've been eating salad and sandwiches this week and so far so good :)  No more brownies (sob), no more fries (sob, sob!) No more big meals :(

I've been using a dance video to exercise but I was doing the easy stuff. Yesterday, I did the hard core exercises and boy did I sweat!!!!

I was beginning to feel like a moving bus!!!!! No kidding! I feel really heavy and I realised I just have to get up and do something about it. It's not entirely about the weight though - I wasn't feeling healthy either so I need to get into good shape.  So I'm looking forward to losing the weight and feeling healthier.

I hope that I'll be able to say that I've lost some weight in about a month or so. I'll keep you posted. I'm going to weigh myself today and see how heavy I am. ( Not looking forward to it!) 

This is me a few months before I got married:
And this is after 7 months of marriage:

Are any of you trying to lose some weight and get into shape?
