So in my last post I said that I was in a good routine now, but I am finding, that I am getting a little too comfortable with it and pushing my limits with food. I am not going crazy or anything, and really doing nothing bad, I am just pushing it to my limit, which may be why I am not seeing the numbers I would like to see. I am still losing and that is great, but I realized I need to get back to the basics when I first started and was super strict about what I was eating and snacking on. So for this next week I am making myself a promise to snack super healthy and to plan out my meals for the week in advance. That is another area I have been slacking in. I have not done good with my meal planning, which is an area that can get me into trouble. Planning and organization has forever and will forever be a struggle for me, but I know that when I have planned ahead, I have SO much more success with things. Why then is it so hard to do, I will never understand.
Something else I have kind of lost sight of, which helped me so much in the beginning, is the Sponsor side of Sponsor Me Slim. I have talked in more depth about what it is in this post, but I will give you a quick version of what it is. Sponsor Me Slim has teamed up with Nourish the Children to help slim down America, while at the same time feed the starving children of the world. This has really proven to be a great motivating tool for not only me, but everyone involved with the program. So I have decided to step out of my comfort zone once again and ask you all for sponsors. So many of you have already helped me out with this, and I am so grateful to you, but for those of you who have not yet, I am asking for your help. The way it works is I have a goal set to lose 160 pounds, you pledge me for any amount you want, and when I reach my goal of 160 pounds lost, I collect the money, and 100% of it goes to feed starving kids. How awesome is that!! I can't wait for the day to help those little kids and I need your help to do it. If you would like to pledge/sponsor me, please send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your sponsor amount. Thank you so much for all your help and support!!
Now for my four month picture reveal. I would like to note that the jeans I am wearing in these pictures are 4 sizes smaller than the ones I am wearing in my starting pictures. Woot, woot!! I told Tyler today that he better start saving his money, because when I lose all my weight I just might take up clothes shopping as a hobby. Oh and I almost forgot two exciting things that happened this week. I ran my first mile, with out stopping or walking, yay, and I hit the 70lbs. gone forever mark, double yay!!
