|My slim down from March 2012 to Jan 2013.|
I kept the weight off - maintaining around 110-115 until I started working at a grocery store in the fall of 2015.
I'd had some health issues - it seemed I was always battling something (I'd had a full hysterectomy in 2014) but my health did drastically improve when I had my breast implants removed in the summer of 2017.
Anyway. As I write this today, I am at 134 pounds. Too much for my frame. I feel best when I can wear my size 4 jeans. That's Just Me.
The pounds started creeping on when I started working at the grocery store. I was now seeing all the food I usually avoid (the snacks aisles) - and the weight started creeping on. We are influenced by what we are around - and being around a ton of "seasonal" Oreo cookies, "limited coconut ice cream" etc, well, my will power just tanked until I no longer felt good wearing a tank top.
This winter has been brutal. All this snow. The cold weather. All the comfort food. I saw an add for Beach Body On Demand on Instagram (dang, sometimes those ads do work), and I signed up for the 14 day free trial.
So far, so good. There are so many different programs to choose from. Which can almost be frustrating. I started the first day with the 21 Fix and liked the first program but I didn't care for the second day of the 21 Fix and so found myself trying a little of everything. I spent about 60 minutes doing some dancing, yoga, and didn't really click with anything. It was overwhelming. I then watched The 20's (the Reality show trying to find a new instructor to add to their "brand") and THAT was entertaining. I also finished the ice cream I'd bought before getting serious about losing the weight. I started day 3 doing The Clean program and Beach Body Yoga (link here to story about day 3) - and enjoyed that. Then day 4, I continued with The Clean and Beach Body Yoga (upper body - which was frustrating).
Today is day 5 - I'm going to take full advantage of the free trial. So far, I'm sore, but I'm feeling more confident, eating healthier.
Okay. I did buy some Robin Eggs after my shift at work last night. Because, you know, they are seasonal. And I did eat them last night. That's the one negative (for me) about working out. Often, after I've worked out, I find myself saying "well, you know, I did burn extra calories sooo" - Beach Body on Demand won't fix that - but I know I can. I've done it before, I
