1) April 4th, 2012 I officially quit Dr. Pepper.
Now, I knew this would not be easy... so I gave myself sometime to adapt to being off of it before I started my exercise routine.
2) April 9th 2012 I started exercising 4-5 times a week for 25-30 minutes at a time.I know that doesn't seem like very much time to be exercising but it's not an easy feat when you are as overweight as I am. I didn't want to start to hate working out right from the beginning so I am easing my way into it. Plus, it's better then what I was doing, right?
3) Some time next week (when I work up enough courage) I am going to start to watch what I eat.
I hesitate to say the word "diet." Because I would like for it to be more of a "lifestyle." Where-as a diet is more of a temporary thing.
So, today was a really rough day. I didn't want to weight myself because I weighed myself on Wednesday and hadn't lost anything. I thought it was because I hadn't started my new lifestyle of eating yet so I assumed today it would be the same. But, I decided to weigh myself anyways and.....
**Drum roll, please!**
I lost 6 pounds!
**does a fat dance**
