I have had a weight loss blog in the past. I lost 34 pounds. I also have a private blog that I wrote a few posts in about my struggle with bulimia last year. I read those posts tonight and couldn't believe what a dark place I was in.
I have gained back those 34 pounds and more *cringe*. I can't remember the last time I threw up on purpose. And I need to distance myself from that.
This is a new beginning.
I have made numerous "attempts" in the last year to lose weight. I would be good for a few days, maybe even a week or two, then I would be back to old habits. I say "attempts" because I'm not sure how hard I was really trying.
This last stint has lasted 5 weeks. I have lost 9 pounds. Trust me, I've not been perfect. But I have hope. I haven't had a streak this good in...years?
Here's how I've lost 9 pounds. I track calories. Yep. That's pretty much it. Sounds simple right? And it mostly is. I will be posting later on the struggles I've had and overcome over the last month or so.
I shoot for 1200 calories a day. I have an awesome booklet my boyfriend made me that helps me keep track. I haven't added in exercise yet, but hope to soon.
I'm actually very excited to share my weight loss journey!
Thanks for tuning in!
