I started Jazzercise yesterday morning. They have a scale there. I stepped on it this morning and I weigh 226lbs. I can not believe I am posting this for the world to see, but I need to start doing something. I'm hoping by documenting it here it will help motive me... or something. Anyway, that number really depresses me. For one thing, it is heavier than I was at THE END of my pregnancy with Olivia. For another... well it just keeps going up. I am losing my mind. I got a Mirena IUD put in about 3 months ago. I was 216 when I got it put in. Or somewhere around there. So I think part of it is that. Weight gain is a side effect. And I'm afraid maybe I've used that as an excuse. So Jazzercise is seriously a good workout for me right now. Maybe it is super easy and I'm just way out of shape... but I sweat my butt off. I push myself through that class. I plan on going 5 days a week. And I'm going to try really hard to eat better. To just be aware of what I'm eating. To have self control. I am going to weigh myself every Friday. And then I'll post it here.
Anyone have any tips? I mean I KNOW how to lose weight. Eat fewer calories than burned. Drink lots of water. So besides that. Like how to stick with it. Or any tricks that make doing that any easier?
