Life Update: My 2011 Weight Lost Journey

It's official! On today Tuesday, December 13th, 2011 I decided that I have put getting in shape off for far too long and it was time to do something about it, so I decided to get back in the gym. Here's a few of me earlier 2011 at my heaviest. How did I gain weight? Life happened!
I became pregnant with my daughter my freshman year of college so on top of my "Freshmen 15" I gained baby fat, then I started working a 9-5 office job (sitting on my behind), needless to say I gained more weight. I got married, I got older, my daughter got older, and life just got extremely busy for me to the point where cooking at home was no longer important to me. I realize now that had I made the choice to exercise regularly and eat healthy back them I could have minimized my weight gain.
Making the choice to eat healthy is a very hard one, most of the time I find that the healthy stuff just doesn’t taste as good as the "bad stuff" but as they say everything that glitters ain't gold. My first healthy food step will be to minimize the amount of fast food I intake and then eliminate it from my diet all together. I plan to cook more at home by trying different recipes, eat more fresh fruits and veggies and drink more water. I plan to workout daily for the first two weeks and then 4 days a week after that for at least 2-3 hours.
My first goal is to lose 30lbs or more, then I plan to lose 50 more and then 50 more and then finally 20-30 more lbs to finish my weight lost plan. Once I'm at my desired weight I plan to keep it that way by keeping up with my workout regiment and continuing to eat healthy. I want to do everything naturally and I’m extremely confident that I can do it. I’m taking care of me now! I’ll post an update of my progress in a few weeks.
