So I start my new job in less than a week. I am really excited I think this will really help me stay on track. I am currently working in the bakery at walmart and can you say temptation. There is almost always something in there to eat. And yeah I know I dont have to eat it but it seems like such a waste to just throw it away. I will only be working 27 hours/3 days a week. I will have so much more time for myself and for exercise. I will have off sat, sun, mon, thur. So I dont see why I cant work out out at least all those days and even tues and friday. I need to write out a set schedule for myself and stick to it. I will be starting school again in a month or so. I would like to get myself on a schedule that way when school start I will just fit it in with everything else.
I have a final tomorrow, that I thought was thursday, so Im really nervous about that, cause I dont think that I will do so well. Oh well I guess to late now, but I will study for a while when I finish this up.
I think I realized why I gained back all the weight I had lost last year. Last year I was down 30 something pounds. I went home for my birthday and while at home my nephew said when are you going to start your diet. I know stupid right he was 9 at the time. But that hurt me so much. It made me feel like I was a little kid again getting teased cause I was fat. I know he didnt mean it and he did say he was sorry. But thats just not something you say to a fat person. I know thats not the only reason. There were some pictures taken that week and I felt like I was still huge, like I hadnt lost a single pound yet. So here I sit back where I was last year at Christmas time. Sad and wishing it would all just melt away like a stick of butter. I know I have a long ways to go and I think with this new job which includes a lot of lifting and bending for 10 hrs straight, which will be a workout in itself that this weight will start to belt off me. I just have to stick it out and not ruin it by eating out all weekend. I think Jeremy is on board since we are going to Hawaii and he wants to lose his belly too. So here I start, my goal is to not eat anything bad the last 3 days of work in the bakery and to sit down and write out a schedule and find some sort of rewards system to help me stick to it.

    Good luck with the new job and congratulations on being engaged. I remember what fun it was to be a bride-to-be. Scheduling exercise works for me! I take it one week at a time and find that exercising in the morning usually works best for me. If I try to exercise later in the day, it always seems like something else comes up and I don't put myself/my workout first.

    Best wishes for success!

    It sounds like the new job was a good move!

    I know what you mean about not wanting food to go to waste, but you don't want it to go to waist either!

    And it's true that sometimes thinner people shouldn't focus on the scale so much, I think that for those of us over 200 pounds the numbers really help. It's so helpful to remember that I have lost 30 or 35 pounds when I feel discouraged that I still look fat. So pounds lost and smaller sizes are things that encourage me to keep going.
