Decision Time

Well I have come to a decision in my life it's time for this Phat chick to shed some pounds... Now before anyone says well I am contradicting the title of my blog no I'm not...What I am saying is I need to lose weight and Phat chicks still rule lol...I am not doing for vanity or for people who give a damn what I look like I am doing it for that fact I am tired of my back hurting, my legs hurting, and I am so damn tired of waking up in the morning having to pop 7 pills in the morning and 2 before bed every night 7 of them are for my blood pressure alone and I HATE pills....with a passion I rather deal with a headache then take aspirin lol...I know its going to be hard to lose weight but I have to commit to this and try hard at it...There is one thing I can control from the get go and that is what I put in my mouth no more soda I need to drink more water I don't drink nearly enough I love those Crystal Light on th go packs even when I am at home I just add them to a bottle of water and instant yummy drink lol...I have to cut out Fast Food plus we will be saving so much money when we cut out Fast Food and I need to give up Candy I am sure there are things I can substitute and have it still be tasty...I don't really eat fried foods the only friend food I ever really eat is fast food...I love veggies and fruit....I could live off salad lol lettuce, mushrooms, black olives and some Ranch Dressing and I am good to go I don't like tomatoes...... cucumbers are ok every once in awhile...I need to try Fat-Free Ranch and get some good low cal recipes..I have some weight-loss blogs posted on my page I figure reading them may give me a few ideas, talking to my Dr and maybe seeing a nutritionist may help...my only issue with that is I really don't want to have some lady who has never been more then maybe 125lbs. tell me how to lose weight I would like to talk to someone who has been where I am and has battled back but I will see about that as time goes on.. I also need to figure out an exercise routine with my back and legs walking isn't really an option so maybe I will have to start out with a sitting routine I will have to check that out to..I have a plan I just need the will power to stick to it..well that's all for now its almost 3 A.M lol I'll write more later...

Hey there, congrats on getting these ideas out and realizing what you have to do.

I don't know how you plan to go about making the changes, but I highly recommend counting calories, like every single thing you eat. It helps me to put my eating habits in check. SparkPeople is a great (and FREE) tool.

Also, in my opinion, Hidden Valley makes the best FF ranch dressing. I've just recently discovered that I really like Italian dressing as well. Just make sure you measure it out - I used to think I was eating healthy when I had a salad but I realize now that I was eating probably 500 calories in dressing alone!

And quitting soda will do wonders for you. Your waist, your teeth, your bones. It was really hard for me to give up sugar sodas, but I'm so glad I did. I was drinking diet soda on occasion, but now it's just water and juice for me.

One last thing before this starts to look like a short story: (And I'm sure you've heard this before) If you have access to a pool and can bring yourself to get in it, swimming is the best for bad back and/or legs. I have a persisting back injury and newer knee problems, so I know how you feel.

I wish you all the best :)
