Well, the date is August 25th, 2012. We are having the wedding at RJ’s dads house which should be beautiful. He has a very large yard with a nice in ground pool.
This also means I have to lose some much-needed weight. I have been very lazy and not watching what I eat at all. I have gained 28lbs in the past 8 months. Wow, writing it down makes it so real and yuck! So, starting today I have quite all caffeine, started eating healthy and I’m going to start walking/jogging after work. I am going to be very cranky however because I am already starting to get a caffeine headache, and I crave bad foods so not giving into these cravings are hard. Once I get passed the initial hard part I will feel better and have more energy and it will motivate me to keep on truckin’.
I downloaded a wedding list of all the things that need to be planned out and I’m not real excited about it only because it is starting to stress me out a bit, and it will be expensive. I plan to do a lot of DIY (do it yourself) but that still adds up $$$. I have asked some good friends to help me plan, research, stuff like that. I’m not afraid to ask for help this time. I know I can’t do it all on my own.
The one thing I can do on my own is to manage my weight. And when I put my mind to something, I make it happen. The last time I lost weight I was starving myself. Literally eating one apple a day. Sure I lost weight, but I was so weak and unhappy. Then as soon as I started eating normal, the weight piled back on. I want to keep the weight off this time because I’m not getting any younger. Wish me luck!
