Hello, I'm Elli! I'll be 25 in a month, and currently weigh 259 lbs.
It's a complete shock when you've come to the realization that you've gained 100 lbs in less than 10 years! I am not exactly sure how it happened. Well, I know how it happened, I'm just shocked that I LET it happen. I never really considered myself to be "fat"... I always knew I was heavy, but I just didn't realize how I actually looked to other people.
I remember one day, I was in the grocery store with my mother, and she pointed out that she kept looking at this other girl while we were in the store, and thinking that she was me from behind. I took one look at this girl, who, I guess was my size, but it just shocked me to actually have an accurate view of how others see me.
I've already tried a few different diets, and have failed, but I think this time I have the motivation I need to reach my weight loss goals.
Currently, I am doing the Fresh Meal Delivery plan from ediets.com
I've already completed two days of it, and I think that it is something that I can do! I saw someone else with a diet blog, and thought it was a great idea!!! I really think that by tracking my progress with my own blog, it will help me stay motivated!
I plan on trying to update everyday with what I have eaten, and include pictures of the meals, and what I thought of them... that way I can keep track of what meals I like, and what I don't like... as well as give someone insight on this diet if they are considering it.
I'll take my before pictures now, but I don't think I'll be comfortable with showing my before picture until I've at least made a little progress! So I'll do those later!
I'll try to post my progress every Monday.
Wish me luck!
