El Porco, Tubby-Custard, Fat Girl.
Three of the many and numerous nicknames that I have had over the years.
Now, let me be clear. These names were used in jest and by people that know me well. No offence was intended or taken. Nevertheless, I would recommend caution before you try any of those on for size; you could end up with a punch in the nose.
The point is that my frame was…on the ample side.
In fact, my frame is still on the ample side. I have lost 55 pounds over the last 6 months, but I’m still not where I want to be.
Partially, this post is a brag. I have lost some weight, and I feel good about it. I’m celebrating buying a jacket with no x’s in the size.
Perhaps I should be putting an affiliate link or two here, guiding you all to the magic formula.
Instead, I’ll say this.
I started with a notebook and writing some goals.
Then I wrote some steps that I was confident that I could take to move me closer to those goals.
- Drink water
- Eat slowly and deliberately
- Walk to work
- Avoid processed sugars
- Reduce processed food
If you want to lose weight, start there.
