Day 1:
It’s official today marks the day I finally reached 182 pounds. Depending on  who you are you might be thinking, “wow girl lay off the cheeseburgers!”, or “I hate you, you skinny b*tch”. But regardless  this is coming from a girl that thought she would never weigh anything below 200 pounds. From here on out I’m going to keep track of the days it takes me to loose my last 52 pounds. I will weigh in each week, and do monthly measurements. I’m calling it 52 to Brand New.  I’m been in search of Ms New Me for a while now. I’m not sure how long it will take me, but I guess I will find out. I don’t even want to put a time frame up because it could lead to disappointment, which turns into  feeling like a huge failure. In the last 7 months I have lost 55 pounds. So maybe that’s how long it will take going forth. I’m not really sure because my desire to workout has went from about 75% to a good 10%, and that’s being generous. I’m not even going to lie and say today I’m going to work out. Because in all honesty I am not. I think I’ll spend the rest of the night watching old t.v. shows on Hulu. Right now I’m watching my way through The Outer Limits. Yeah I may not be a thin girl, but I’m somewhat of a geek. Today my diet has been horrendous if not nonexistent. It’s not even what you may be thinking. I have not been snacking, and I don’t have said cheeseburger in hand. I haven’t eaten much of anything all day. Don’t worry I’m not on a 2 calorie diet or some other crazy nonsense. It’s just that my fridge is pretty bare of healthy items, unless you count condiments and processed cheese slices.  I currently have 2 tubs of ice cream. One is of cookies and cream, the other banana split, which both fall under the milk group, and possibly the fruit group. But I doubt that counts as healthy. There is also ice cream cake in the freezer. So if I wanted I could load up on sugar,  I could but then my next post would be about how I was gaining weight and not losing it. Tomorrow is Friday, and thank goodness a pay day! So I will be going shopping then. Now for my official weigh in for my 52 to Brand New:

Introduction to Not a Thin Girl

This is my very first blog post here. I will use it as an introduction to me, and just a brief description of what I will be blogging about. I am a 25 year old mother of two small children. I will use this blog to chronicle my struggles and joys as I strive to loose those last 52 pounds. I have recently lost 78 pounds, but I am in no way even close to being a thin girl. But hopefully, soon enough, I will make it there.  With all the issues that come with trying to loose weight, I’ll also talk about my issues in nursing school. I’m on my last year before I become a Registered Nurse.  Here you can read about the stresses and acheviements of a poor nursing student. You all know the saying, “You can never be too thin or too rich” so what happens when you are not even close to being either?!  Im thinking you will end up with something that somewhat resembles my crazy life.  Some days you will find me reminising about how I managed to gain 260 pounds on my 5 foot 5 frame. Other days you may find me lameting not throwing the scale out the window. But regardless you will find that I’m open, honest, real. If you are in the same place, or can relate in some way, then maybe you will enjoy living through this with me.
