Losing for Me Journey - 4/16/17

Sunday, April 16, 2017

I weighed in today and I lost 0.8 pounds! Woohoo! It's been a rough week for me. I'm at 293.2 pounds. This is the first time I've posted my weight out there. I started physical therapy this week. I am going at 7AM before work twice a week so I don't have to take unpaid time off. It's time for an incentive system for me since this is a relatively long journey. That will help my motivation. Here are the ways I can earn money: work out, plan my meals for the day, ice my back, eat in my calorie range, blog, write in my journal. I will earn 25 cents for one I do. Every 25 dollars I get a non-restaurant/food reward. I am looking forward to this. At the end of the day I will tally my money for the day. I need to be focused on losing weight and inches. I refuse to emotionally eat today. I will make myself a priority. I forgot one of my goals which is to do physical therapy home exercises for 25 cents. I can earn up to $1.75 a day. I'm enjoying sharing in this blog. I write in my journal but it's time for me to share more of myself. It isn't easy but I think it will help me. I am losing mostly on my own. My husband is trying to help be there for me but he's never been much of a healthy eater. I've helped him to improve his diet. My goal is for us to get healthier together. I hope it works out that way. My name is Charmaine and I'm 41 years old. People have given all kinds of nicknames including Charming, Charmalou, Charmainiac, Charmainia, and Charmie. I personally prefer Charm as my nickname and very few people want to call me that. They like the names they chose better. Go figure. Charm
