following: rallspach's own diet
performance: losing 1.8 lb a week
Back in March 2006 I weighed 255lbs and standing at 5 foot 2", that's a whole lot of woman. I turned 39 in January 2006 and took a real hard look at myself in the mirror - and I didn't like who I saw - I didn't like the outside and I was pretty tired of who I was on the inside too.
I started thinking about my daughter (she was 9 at the time) and how I wanted to be around to see her have children and knew that if I kept eating like I was and not exercising I wasn't going to be around to see that. I was being a terrible role model and really wanted my daughter to look up to me and want to be around me - I knew I wasn't being that to her and I didn't like being around myself so I knew no one else did either, especially her.
So, I started my lifestyle change in March 2006 and lost 115 in a year! I was feeling great, looking great and started loving myself - I ran my first 5K in May 2007 and ran my first 10K in October 2009!
Well back in July 2010 I started slacking off on my exercise routine and started eating more than I should - I fell off the wagon - I don't know why but I did – well, I do know why – my brother moved in with me and my family and slept on our couch for almost three months – He threw my whole routine and life out of whack and instead of making some adjustments – which if anyone knows me knows it’s close to impossible for me to do – I just quit - my head just wasn't in it anymore.
Since then I have gained 30 pounds!!!
I've been trying to get my psyche right again since the 1st of January 2011. SO....here I am today - I believe I am ready now to "get back on my wagon"
Oh yeah, I'm a Corporate Services Administrator for a civil engineering firm - so the most exercise I get during the day is getting up and going to the bathroom!
