Re: HMM....Another day
I know what you mean and how you feel. I was under 100lbs in high school, and when I got married 11 yrs ago, I weighed about 100lbs. Last summer, I decided the 150lbs didn't not do it for me on my 5ft 4in frame. I despised excercising and didn't have much free time to myself. Back then I started eating salad, yogurt, fruit and veggies and that's it. It sucked, having to prepare regular meals for everyone else in the house, and getting a yogurt for me, but I kept at it. It probably wasn't the healthiest way I could've done it though. Eventually, I added walking and a staionary bike to the routine. I will admit, it wasn't easy, but I dropped about 25-30lbs that way. Now I'm stuck at a plateau and am trying it again. I do a few miles daily (either walking or treadmill) but that's it for excercise. It's hard to get motivated sometimes, but try to think of how much better you will feel.
Try going shopping for clothes, grab a pair of jeans in the size you USED to wear and one in your current size. Go in the dressing room and try on the ones you KNOW won't fit. Make that your goal. To get in to those jeans. Or try on a bathing suit--that's what did it for me. SCARY! Good luck and keep us posted on what you decide. There are alot of people on this board that will have really good advice for you too.
