I am 18 years old, 5'6 and weigh in at about 210 pounds. My idea weight, accourding to a BMI scale is 140 pounds. However, because I am quite busty (38G) I don't want to lose that much weight. I want to get down to 170.
I have a membership to Curves, an all womens gym, that im going to put to use, as well as the treadmill at home, and riding my horse. My plan is to ride 3 days a week. And either run, or workout 3 days a week, with one day off.
As well, I am going to start eating better. I hate cooking, and I constantly go out for my meals. Im going to start eating better regardless. I actually like salads, so im going to try and eat more of those.
A big thing for me is drinking less pop. Im lactose intollerant, so milk isnt an option, and I can't stand soy milk, so im going to drink as much water and juice as I can.
There are two reasons why im doing this. One, to boost myself esteem. I recently shaved my head for cancer, and didnt realize how much I hid behind my hair until now. So I want to lose the weight to get some self confidence back.
As well, I injured my hip last year falling off my horse, and will always have problems with it. However, my doctor assured me, that the less I weigh, the less it will hurt.
All I need now is the motivation to carry this out!
Wish me luck!
