performance: losing 0.5 lb a week
My name is Bailey. I am 28 and from California. I have a 7 year old daughter and a wonderful husband. I have always had weight problems despite knowing what I am doing wrong and what I should be doing to rectify the wrong. I work a full time desk job and have a hard time squeezing in exercise. The only feasible time is before work (and before the hubby leaves for work), which means being at the gym no later than 4:30am. Rough. Although my eating habits during the week are decent, my husband is quite the bad influence on me. We eat out frequently and drink a lot of beer. Sometimes his desires for fun cause him to disregard both of our health and my desire to get back to a healthy weight. More than anything, I do not want my daughter to endure the troubles that both my mother and I have dealt with all of our lives, so I want to instill the proper values for eating and exercise early on. My ideal weight is between 140 and 145, which is the high side for my 5'5" frame, but any smaller and I look emaciated. My start weight was 187.4 lbs and I have recently gotten as low as 162, just in time for our August 2013 wedding. Ultimately, I want to get into better habits so I don't have to worry about my weight for the rest of my life.
I am restarting this journey at approximately 180lbs in February 2014. I am hoping to be back down to my wedding weight of 160 by my 29th birthday, May 8th.
