Or Maybe I'll start on Thursday.

Today's Weight: 193 lbs, down 1.2 from last week.
Total weight lost: -91.6

Good hello to whoever is reading this. I am horrible at introductions & new to bloggin, I don't know how this thing works so I'm just gonna do my own thing & here it goes: My  name is Christina & I am 25 yrs. old, I will be turning 26 next month on April 6th. I am a previous "big loser", having lost 145 lbs. I started Weight Watchers (WW) on February 1st 2008 & made goal sometime close to that same date in 2010. I maintained my weight for about a year & slowly over the last 2 years I have been gaining my weight back. I never stopped attending WW meetings but I stopped making it a routine & old habits die hard. I stopped tracking, I stopped planning, I was emotional eating, yadda yadda. I am quickly approaching the 200lb mark and I just cannot do that to myself again. So, here I am. Putting all my shit on blast for the entire internet to read. I get asked a LOT about my weight loss and I have been feeling like the hugest hypocrite because I was not taking my own advice. It makes me feel so good knowing that I have inspired a lot of people but at the same time, it makes me cringe with guilt because of how I have been living the last 2 years. My biggest advice to people who want to lose weight is that you have to wait for your AHA moment. When you've had enough and you really want to change yourself. I had my 2nd AHA moment, seeing me creep back up close to 200. That's why I am starting this blog. To hold myself accountable, to track my weight loss & progress, to give me something to do & hopefully, help others along the way.

I find the title of my blog to be appropriate for me because I found myself telling that lie again. I'm sure you've told it to yourself too. Mondays are a crappy day to start anything. That's why I like Thursdays. Thursdays are my weigh in day so I will post my progress once a week. Some other things I plan to post: routines I have, food favorites (with pictures), & recipes. You can leave comments with questions or other ideas you'd like to know about down below, you can even do so anonymously if you wish. Once I get the hang of this thing, I will try to make this a daily blog. kthxbai.

  1. Congrats on the new blog! Wanna be weigh-in buddies? I hear that having someone do these things with you could help dial up the motivation. And little friendly competition never hurt anyone, right? :)

    Also, if you're interested, try the myfitnesspal app/website. It's a calorie counter sort of thing that pairs with various other apps to record exercise and keep track of your goals. It's usually the thing that puts me back on track better than the scale does.
