A little background: I'd been fat for most of my life. I remember being weighed at age 12 for the track team and I tipped the scale at 207 pounds. At age 16 I was 250 pounds, and I stayed around that weight into my adulthood. Then, at age 35 I had several months of a catastrophic life episode too personal to discuss here and I went down to 180 pounds. This was the lowest I ever weighed since I'd hit puberty. I was eating healthily and running 2-5 miles almost every day.
|Skinny me when I was a guest at an Anime convention. I don't look like this anymore.|
Anyway, today I am a sad 259 pounds. Being fat didn't used to bother me. I thought I was a very pretty fat girl (I still am) but the fact is, I was skinny-ish once. I'd like to go back to that. My mother needs to lose weight also. It's time to get this done!
Well, the goal of weightloss was on our every day to-do list. We spent a month at a park with a full gym with the thought that we'd lose 20 pounds before we took off on our full-time RVing adventure.
But we didn't lose squat. We still haven't. I've gained 10 pounds since we've been on the road. -_-
Something's got to give. I've tried doing our own meal-plans to lose weight and I just screw up. I will be good one day and binge the next. My mother has perfect will-power, unless she sees me eating ice cream. If she sees it she wants it too. It's my fault for putting it in front of her!!
I need to do something drastic if I'm actually serious about losing weight. So here it is. I've signed up for the Personal Trainer Food program. They sent me a month worth of food for one person. My mother and I (two people) are eating this for 15 days then we'll order another month's worth. It was MUCH cheaper to order this than our normal food budget. There was a great Groupon going on. It's EXTREMELY affordable.
My only qualm was if I could fit a month's worth of meals in my tiny RV fridge and freezer. The answer: Yes. Here's what it looks like, people:
Yeah, we're full to bursting. The crispers were already full before we got the stuff, so technically it's not all Personal Trainer food in there. But, yes, if you clean out your fridge and freezer you will have enough room in your tiny RV fridge/freezer for one month of this diet. They said it's fine to have up to 17 days worth of food in the fridge. Since we're two people eating one month of food the stuff in the fridge should be gone long before it can go bad.
The food tastes great. I've only done one day, but so far so good. I hope this will be the kick in the ass I need to finally lose some weight. If I don't, however, this is still good because it's cheaper to do this program than to buy groceries. Win-win.
