I'm doing it for real. I've been on and off overweight since I was 10, but it got really bad after college. Well, I tried lots of different diets and exercise plans in the past, and I just couldn't keep up with it. Years ago I hit my highest weight and tried to get in shape, but I plateaued with stress eating from nursing school. Yes, I'm blaming some of this on nursing! BUT I entirely acknowledge it is my bad habits I have to get out of, and the weight loss/increased fitness level will come.
I bought T25 and started drinking shakeology with it. I know, I know, expensive products that don't really teach you how to eat healthy. But I know how to eat healthy. It's the routine I need. The routine of exercising for 30 minutes every day. The counting the calories so I'm not mindlessly eating anymore.
I've lost more than 8lbs in 3 weeks and would love to lose another 30. But mostly I want to be able to hold a conversation when walking up the steps. I don't want to say, "maybe next time" when I go on a trip because I know I can't hike up that mountain. I don't want a patient to look at me and wonder if I'm really the best person to be giving them advice on their heart healthy/low fat/diabetic diet.
There's a million online communities for weight loss, but you guys are my people. So you have to read my nonsense. Or don't, you know, whatever.
