Time to start fresh...
I really let myself go in such a short time. And I was doing really good D:
I can't blame falling in love and getting comfortable with my now fiance, because I should have taken control of what I ate. We always had fast-food or I'd cook us something containing a Sh*load of oil (fried chicken...etc), too many carbs and of course those calories... Oh those pesky calories -__-

Here's my story...
My cooking habits, I learned from my mom. The food was so yummy but at age 13-14 I couldn't even fit into size 16 pants (I'm assuming I was about 250lbs then). I just kept gaining weight from there. At age 18 I was about 320lbs O.O big wake up call! Started dieting and exercising. Lost 15lbs? But when I got bored of it, I stopped. Went back to my bad eating habits again. At age 19, I saved up money for this diet. Where you only eat 500cals a day. Started at 298lbs.. I did 2 rounds, lost about 60lbs. This was all in 2months. No exercise.. Which caused me to have the flabbiest of flabby skin :( Biggest regret was not adding exercise to the diet, even though they don't "recommend" it.
Ok ok... after that, I kept shedding extra pounds by eating right, still no exercise. I was dealing with some family stuff, but kept my mind occupied by getting a new job and falling in love :P And us women know that when you are in love, you're motivated to DIET! And that was me.. So in Jan'12 I quit the job lol. Still dieting. In March, my crush asked me out on a date. And 1 week later he was my boyfriend. STILL dieting. Fast forward a bit... (still dieting, fast-food dates, but mostly dieting....) Uhhh... August is when it all went downhill. The fast-food and high calorie cooking!!!! Ugh.. I was going from 230-240lbs, always in between. But in November, when I moved with my fiance to his "hometown", I weighed myself (before Thanksgiving hahaha) and I was about 255lbs. Not good. Kept weighing myself every other week or so. Kept gaining weight -__- I'm now at a whopping 270lbs!! Grrrr....

So now it's time to start over. Still figuring out a diet plan, but I do know one thing... Exercise WILL be included. I have my little weights and stretch bands waiting for me. I hope my journey will encourage other gals (or fellas) out there to make a change along with me :) It's never too late to start over. No matter what age you are.

Day 8
I didn't have time to post this yesterday :P

Ok.. So today was alright. Although It was a busy day & I had to exercise at different times than what I got used to (10am & 3pm).
It's so funny that my brother wants to take credit for my weightloss (hes in school to be a fitness trainer). I get so upset because; is he getting me up in the morning to exercise? NO. Is he informing me whats healthy, etc, etc.?? NO. The only thing he does is criticize shit. Like on the software Fitday I was using, It shows I was eating more carbs. Well how was I supposed to know what to eat if hes not telling/helping me?
I'm on my own in this. I dont need/want his help. Anyways, whenever I ask him something, he just acts like I'm bothering him, you know.? So whatever. I dont understand why he said he wanted to help me lose weight, when he really hasnt done anything to help.

Anyways...
For breakfast & lunch I had a shake.
& dinner... was fabulous haha.
I made (yes, just me lol) Chicken with Hoisin sauce.
I used 2 pieces of chicken breast tenderloins (skinlees & boneless).
2tbs of Hoisin sauce (for BOTH. not each lol), brushed on both sides of the chicken. & since this time I used a toaster oven, I set it on grill at 350 for about 35mins. I also had a salad (with no dressing), the packaged kind & I added fresh spinach to the mix lol.

(Picture is kinda bad. taken from my camera phone! Lol)

Day Seven
What can I say?? I'm extremely happy :D I haven't weighed myself yet, & I'm so nervous! Today I only had two shakes (breakfast & lunch). I'm still not sure what to have for dinner lol.
Of course I did my 60mins of cardio today. It's getting soo much easier.
With the perfect music, I feel I get through the 30mins(x2) so fast. I love it (: & you'd be shocked to hear that from me if you know me lol :P
I noticed that my midsection is getting smaller. It doesnt stick out soo much like it used to lol YAY (:

I'm never going to give up. Yes I will have my bad days, but I won't ever let that get in the way (: Please, anyone who is in the same situation as me, I encourage you to make a change. Believe me, you'll feel so much better. Don't let more months or even years go by like I did.
You can/will always have my support. We can change our lives together!
Feel free to leave a comment (:

The weekend is over
Oh what a battle it was to stay focused!
Saturday I caved!! I couldnt help eating the "so delicious" Mac&cheese from KFC!
OMG I'm truely FAT lmao.. BUT I exercised it off. I still feel so guilty though.
I won't ever do that again. It suuucks ):

Sunday I barely ate... Until dinner that is (;
I was looking for low fat oven baked chicken leg recipes. Since that's all the chicken we had left in the freezer.
Almost all the recipes I was interested in, I didnt have all the ingredients. Soo.. Who do I go to for help? No other than my mom of course lol. We were thinking of what to season the chicken with. & I'm very picky lol. She came up with making mustard chicken (made with yellow mustard, lemon juice, garlic salt & pepper). It tasted really good. She had made mustard chicken, pan fried..with skin, a few years ago. I liked it then. But I looveed this one way better. No skin. No added oil (: I also had plain (no seasoning/salt) steamed brocolli ;P

Is mustard chicken even healthy?? Lol

So far...
I've been doing 60 minutes of cardio a day (30mins at 10am, another 30 at 3pm). I had originally planned to do another 30mins at 9pm. But these past days I've been falling asleep & never had the chance to do the last 30mins. BUT my question is, would that be too much? Or is 60mins a day enough? I'm also trying to get 30mins of strength training in everyday.

As for my diet...
It's a mess ;P I still don't have my meals planned for breakfast, lunch & dinner + the snacks in between.
Yesterday my mom had gotten me Equate Ultra Weight Loss Shakes, in French Vanilla (favorite), Creamy Milk Chocolate & Strawberries 'n Cream.
I had one as a snack yesterday & another with my dinner (which was a piece of skinless chicken breast).
Now, today I had one for breakfast. These shakes really taste good. French Vanilla of course being my absolute favorite. Creamy Milk Chocolate tasted great, but has 10 more calories + 10mg more of sodium. & lastly, Strawberries 'n Cream... It's not THAT bad. Just not my favorite of all three lol.
I'm going to have another for a snack, or maybe just as my dinner lol.

I want to know what amount of calories, sodium, etc. is considered healthy.
I'm looking for healthy recipes for the 3 meals.
If anyone would like to send me recipes, I'd appreciate it (:
Also if anyone has suggestions as to what snacks I can have in between meals :D
My calorie restiction is 1500.

PLEASE leave any positive feedback, suggestions, recipes, etc.
HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY (:

First Post: Introduction
My name is Diana. I'm 18 years old.
I've been struggling with my weight my whole life. I am 150+lbs overweight. It is time for me to make a change.
I've considered weight loss surgery, & to be honest, I still am. I will try my hardest to lose this weight by exercising & proper dieting.
I've started my "journey" Tuesday, March 23, 2010.

I'll blog through out this journey. I'll post what products I am using, recipes & exercise routines. I hope to encourage other overweight teens to start making a change. We can do this together (: This is our life, our health.

If you have any questions or advise, feel free to leave a comment. I'll reply as soon as possible (:
