Week One Day 4 of the SHSC

Current Weight: 266 (-2 lbs)

I have to start by saying this... Thank You to all who have posted strength training suggestions for me. What a great group of friends I have, I'm blessed beyond words. I am working on a work deadline that has to be done before I go to bed tomorrow night so I'm a bit behind in checking things out but once this is completed I will look at everything thoroughly.

I finally took courage and changed my profile pic to what I think is a decent picture of myself taken yesterday while outside playing with the dog. It's amazing how much courage it took, it was easier to show my body (in clothes) then my face. I've said this before, it's like I was afraid someone would recognize me and then I thought, um if someone does then they know I am fat! So that's me Sassle.

Another reason I'm showing myself is because I find it makes me more accountable. It's easier for me to hide and not say anything, not participate and the end result is I'm obese, but since I am showing myself and my stats, my competitive nature won't allow me to fail (well let's hope not).

I read Prior Fat Girl's post yesterday about "how bad do you want it" and it struck a cord inside of me, it's been in my head since, top that off with Annalisa's post about reaching her full potential and I've come to the conclusion that I'm not working this plan hard enough, most certainly not as hard as I am capable of. Once this work project is done, I can finally concentrate on what it is I need to do to live a healthier life. In the meantime I'm still following the SBD, I'm not cheating, it's just that I know I can do more, I can do better. This project has been haunting me for a while now and I've got to get'er done.

Here is my food for the day:

B: Sassle's delicious Quiche
L: Chicken w/tbsp light mayo, slice whole wheat bread
D: Pasta w/Sassle's marinara

Snack: 1 clementine, 1 banana (if bananas are ripe)
Snack2: pudding w/tbsp whipped cream

nothing for today, I won't even pretend, but I will start on Monday (gosh I hate those words)

Plan for the day:
Finish this project!!!

Please Wish me Luck!!!

I am proud of you for posting a picture of your face :) I have to say, you look GORGEOUS!

I was in your shoes a few years ago when I was a teenager, I used fake pictures of myself and I was so afraid people would call the 'real me' UGLY.

I am so glad I moved past it and now I've come to embrace my appearance ONLINE. I agree, it does make us more accountable which is why I am proud of you.

You look lovely!! <3 GOOD JOB!

You are beautiful! Love that photo of your face. Congrats on having the courage to post it. n

I had that same realization the I wasn't doing enough and finally got on track. I'm not going to fret about this time while I feel like crap. It will pass.
