212 and dropping... I hope.

Okay, so here I am.

This journal is largely defunct, as I'm now primarily at GJ. It's nice to have a use for it, though, and some support in the seemingly never-ending journey.

I think I'm about 212. That's what I was when I weighed in at my mom's about a week ago. I don't own a scale, and my doctor thinks this is a good thing. I'll be keeping track of my successes through my seamstress's tape, which I adore for knitting, and is suddenly finding itself dual-purpose. I'll post the actual numbers tonight.

I work in a sedentary job. I have a 1.5 hour commute- each way - daily for work. This leaves me with little or no gym-time if I want to actually socialize with my wonderful Alec, who is losing weight every time I look at him. Thing is, while he's dropping pounds like mad, I'm still at the same weight, if not gaining. And I can't for the life of me figure why. I'm drinking a ton of water, I'm eating less, and better, I'm eating five or six small meals daily, cutting out junk and soda, and other such good things, and nothing happens. I'm going to keep trying, though, and we'll see if it's just a shift from fat to muscle.

The rest of the background is that I spent 13 years on the pill. I'm now off that, and apparently my carriage of my weight has the doctor watching my thyroid. We'll see how THAT goes.

I want to lose this weight because:

-I want to be healthy.
-I want to not have to shop in plus anymore.
-I want to stop outgrowing my clothes while they're still in style the FIRST time.
-I want to be a healthy environment for a baby, before we're ready to have babies.
-I want to not have to hear my mother ask me if I'm going on a diet, or tell me that I really could use to lose a few.
-I want to feel as beautiful as Alec tells me I am.

The list continues, but that's the brunt of it. Thanks for having me, and good luck to all!

The mother thing... I hear you! My mom eyes me up and down every time we see each other. Just once I want her to eye me up and down... and smile.
