I do have a question, if you don't want to read all that's below just skip down, it's in purple! (:
Last year, I had gone on Weight Watchers with my mother. I lost a total of 40 pounds and I was ecstatic. Being 15 and weigh almost 200 lbs was horrible.
It ended up being too costly for my mom to pay to be members, a few family issues came up, and my mom was really busy and didn't have time to go buy healthy food and make dinners every night.
I would have loved to do that for her, but we didn't have the best foods to make a healthy meal out of. We both gained back the weight we had lost.
I've been, for the past month or so, making small changes to my diet.
No more soda, juices (orange juice is so good, so I just add a lot of water to it), and recently ruled out all candy/sweet stuff, I've also been not snacking. Which was a big problem of mine.
I haven't been on the scale yet, still too nervous to see the number. I know that if I see it and don't like it, I'm going to just give up all together, and I don't want to.
I really want to loose weight for my horse and myself. She's never had a problem carrying me, but I know she'd be happier if I was lighter. All the extra weight definitely takes a toll on my joints and what not.
In the spring I'm going to start walking around my neighborhood (with my big dog, whose eyes are scary but would just love you to death!) and going to be taking my horse on walks, get some more in-hand respect.
Guess this was all kind of pointless, but Im kind of proud that I'm doing this on my own and needed to share!
Also, a question, I snowboard with my school on Fridays. We leave around 11 am, so I only eat breakfast, and don't come home till 11 pm.
The food there is so expensive, so I'd like to bring my own. The only problem is there's no place to refrigerate anything. I don't want to be the person who brings tons or apples and other fruits! Because one apple is not very filling when you're out in the cold snowboarding!
I was wondering if anyone knew of something that I could bring there that is a little more filling than an apple that doesn't need to be refrigerated.
I was thinking maybe some dry cereal and then an apple along with it?
thanks for reading all of this!!
