I check myself out in the mirror on a regular basis. Okay, let’s face it. I’m obsessiveness. When I’m not in front of the computer, I’m in front of the mirror. Other than huge breasts, I don’t have many curves. You’re not going to find an hourglass figure on me, or a rump that speaks to you. No, just not going to happen. Even when I was 132 lbs and the best shape of my life, I didn’t have curves. Just breasts.
So I’m doing this #twitloss thing, kinda. 🙂 I’ve started running on a regular basis (not far, but I’m doing it) and going to karate. Really though, the exercise is for my health, not really my weight. Cause to be honest, just the thought of how much exercise I’d have to do to burn off a snack ticks me off.
The big problem I have with weight loss is my eating habits. You see, I have this tendency to overeat. I’m talking about stuffing myself until my not-so-little tummy hurts. I wasn’t like that when I married, and I don’t recall being like that when I was pregnant either. In fact, I remember going to the doc for my post-natal follow up, and him asking how I’d lost the weight. (I could already fit into my wedding dress again). I told him, I didn’t pig out.
The truth is, I ate when I was hungry and stopped when I was full. I didn’t stretch my stomach until I was uncomfortable. I let enough be enough. I’m not sure what happened, but sometime between then and now I’d lost control. Only recently with this #twitloss thing have I tried to eat just enough. And I think it’s working. That tire around my waist is pretty much gone. In fact, I have a little bit of a curve happening. Not a lot. As I said, my body doesn’t do hourglass. Even my gut is starting to look a little smaller. Now if I can just stay consistent and not sabotage myself.
What have you found works for you in terms of eating habits?
