I’ve always been obsessed with health/nutrition. I’m preparing to graduate college in a little less than a month and waiting (im)patiently for a proposal this summer. Since last summer I’ve let myself slide downhill and now I don’t feel quite ready to be awesome in my graduation pics and for my entire family to see me. What’s more important, I just want to feel good in my skin when I walk across that podium and know that I’ve finished a chapter of my life and am starting another.
I’ve been looking for a way to hold myself accountable. Journaling to myself doesn’t really work (I guess I don’t have enough authority in my own eyes, lol), and I don’t want to blog it out for everyone to see at this moment. So, being a faithful bee, I thought why not post it on the hive?
Every day (or as often as possible/finals permit) for the next couple of weeks I’ll be posting my progress here: how I’m feeling, what I’ve been eating, and how I’ve been working on getting fit. I don’t own a scale, so I’ll just have to make do with measuring myself, looking in the mirror, and trying on my old size 0 pants and hoping they fit. I’ve always been fairly slim but at the moment I’m quite pudgy (I’m just really short, that’s why I wear such a small size). I hope I’ll be back to some semblance of a nice shape by the time my parents come over in 3 weeks (my mom can be brutal about my weight…) and feel better about myself by the time SO proposes (and ready for those engagement pics and dress shopping!).
Feel free to follow or not follow my journey, and of course you’re more than welcome to help me out and join me by contributing to this thread with your own progress. I’ve always found the hive to be such a sweet and supportive community. Despite more recent tension on the boards, I hope this can bring us closer together in the spirit of support and encouragement.
