That's how much weight I've gained since I was married on July 12, 2008. It's possible the number may be a little higher; I've been afraid to step on the scale. But to me, it's not really about the weight. I am more concerned with fitting back into my clothes and feeling sexy again. So how am I going to go about losing this weight?
1. Work my way back into a running program. I've been injured since January and really hope that I can start getting into some more high-impact activities. I will be following the First Steps program laid out by Runners World, which is a 10 week training plan.
2. Portion control, especially with respects to my weakness--dessert!
3. Avoid prepared foods by making meals from scratch with as many organic/local/environmentally conscious ingredients as we can afford.
4. Drink eight 8-oz. glasses of water a day, and remember to take a daily multivitamin and calcium chew.
