First day to the rest of my life

Wednesday, March 25, 2015

Hi, I am trying to lose 25 lbs by Thanksgiving, but that isn't all i want to do. I want to be healthy. I want to feel healthy. I am 20 years old, I am married (almost 4 months) and weigh 150 lbs. I love being active and feeling sore, but after getting married we moved to a city in a state that I've never been in before. I'm slowly getting used to it, but going on a run isn't as fun as it used to be. Eating healthy is something I love as well, but we eat out 2-3 times a week so it's also hard to do. I love cooking, and I recently found a job so shopping for food is something I'm trying to take over. So day 1. Today's goal is to drink 8 glasses of water, and stay within 1300 calories. You can join me on my journey and if you want to become buddies to keep each other accountable just message. This is my first day to the rest of my life.

    The truth is studies show women GAIN weight after they get married, because the guy eats every night and she SITS with him on the sofa while he plays video games or watches TV and EATS. Doesn't bother him but she gets fat. Not good.

    Do this for YOU. Over the last seven years I have read so many Spark blogs that are the same "Oh, I got married and I gained, and then I got pregnant and gained a lot more and didn't lose it and then got pregnant again, etc. etc and now I'm 250#....." Don't let that happen to you.
