Its time for a change: Things so far

Friday, July 05, 2013

   I always have in my head that the fourth of July is the half way point of the summer. Honestly, I hope this isn't true because I have been lacking sleep (and some precious time hanging out with my friends as well). I love work but it is exhausting me sometimes. My sleep schedule is bonkers and I do not have enough time (or energy for that matter) to socialize. I am so tired that I am rubbing my eyes and yawing every sentence that I type out. Its a good thing that I have vacation next week. Just kidding. My vacation entitles me to chaperone10 high school teens. Not your typical vacation. I'm going to try my best to channel in my Mother-Theresa  and have a halo gracing my head the entire trip. I intend to blog the entirety of the trip. I'm bringing a long my trusty little lap top along to type the journey away. There's something about writing on trains-maybe its the amount of movies that I watch-but that allow me to have hope that maybe I'll be able to write a book in a short 8 hour time frame. After all, the concept of Harry Potter came about on a train. Not that I would be writing something as great as Harry Potter. Or for the matter that I would be even capable of doing so.
    My weight loss journey has been going well. Before my weight loss 'journey' I was scared to even step on the scale in fear of what the numbers were going to be. Now, at least twice a week I check how much I weigh. Better then ever two years, right?!? I know a lot of people have said this, but drinking fluids is the key here (water guys) to loosing weight. I'm now even more addicted to popcorn then ever before as well as salsa because they are so healthy.I know that I still have a ways to go, but I am excited to go back to school and feel (and look) better then ever before. I never realized that I was-and still am-over weight until this year. I don't think it set into my head that I was over weight until there was a possibility in Feburary of meeting my favorite band. I remember thinking in my head " I wish that I was skinnier/healthier when I met them, I'm not ready". Of course this weight lost journey isn't just to impress the Jonas Brothers. Trust me, I've tried that before and it hasn't gone well. This weight lost journey is for myself. Not for the boy in my math class that I have been trying for him to notice me. Not for my parents. Not for the media who says that you need to be a certain weight/size. Myself. The reason for why I'm loosing weight, I believe, is the key reason for why I'm doing so well (and getting results) compared to before. Compared to other times, I wasn't loosing weight for myself. I was doing it because others told me I was fat. Looking back, I wish that I would have realized that I wasn't heavy weight. Instead of eating away at my emotions I should have blocked those thoughts of others out. Instead of going drastic then and only eating 300 calories a day, I should have learned about how to MAINTAIN my weight instead of believing that I could live off of the minimum amount. I am glad that I am at a better place both mentally and physically now and cannot wait to loose even more weight for myself. I have had people tell me that you can never be selfish. That it's "looked down upon" if you do. I don't believe that. When it comes to your health, you should be selfish. You need to take action and get your body in the best condition possible. I hope for any of you guys reading this, that I can be an example of how weight loss is a benefit for people. I have never been more active in my life. I am walking a minimum of 3 miles a day. Biking, playing tennis and volleyball, swimming and even more! Honestly, what are you waiting for? You have nothing to loose other than pounds!
