I joined a new online group today, “Lose It!” I figured it had to be good because it starts with an “L” and ends with an “!” (as in Lydia!). It was suggested by the wonderful Dyane of “Birth of a New Brain“. I have just started with the free package for now, as I often have problems sticking with a plan thanks to all my disorders.
I have just started with the free package for now, as I often have problems sticking with a plan thanks to all my disorders. By saying that I am not trying to set myself up for failure. I have learned to be a realist when it comes to my life – I take it one day at a time.
So far, it is quite straight forward. I set up a user account and then recorded what I ate today and what exercise I did. I couldn’t do an actual weigh-in as the battery in the scale was dead when I tried. But I think I am safe using my weight from last week. It calculated that I want to lose 64 pounds and doing it safely it will take me to February 2017. That’s okay. It has taken me awhile to put it on and I just can’t do anything too fast these days.
It feels good that I will have a group and accountability on my side. Losing weight is a very difficult thing for me because when I am so heavy I have a hard time loving myself and I turn to food – that vicious circle. This time, I am just reminding myself how much healthier I will be.
I hope to share my journey with you. However, don’t worry, I won’t be documenting every calorie, step, etc. here. I’ll pick out some good highlights along the way. I am just glad I have people who I feel comfortable sharing with.
