Eating Wrong

Let me preface this with a picture:
This picture is the reason I run. This is me, at 23, and about 200 pounds, give or take. I don't weigh myself for a variety of reasons, mainly because it turns me into a crazy-number-hunting-b*witch. This was during a research conference in Texas. I had no idea I was that big. I knew I was big, but not like that. You know what sucks? Weighing 200 pounds in Texas in July. Just miserable.

I have gone done 2 to 3 clothing sizes since then. I couldn't have run 2 minutes, now I can run for hours. But I'm still not quite I want to be. I'm a junk food junkie, I'll admit. It has gotten better-I didn't eat salad AT ALL until I was 22. I eat more whole grains, fruits, veggies, and lean protien that ever. But I think I could do better.
One goal for 2011 is to be more aware of my food. Of not eating whatever's easiest (vending machine popcorn  and M&M "trail mix"), but of trying to be a better runner by eating better. No diets. They just me grumpy. Just better food choices.

What's your junk food secret pleasure?

  1. Mine is sweets...OMG if you put one of something in front of me, I will eat the whole box. Don't beat yourself up. You were still gorgeous at 200 pounds and now that you've gone down a few sizes you are just now more healthy :) Food is my weakness and I am with you on the numbers game. I hate weighing myself and can become quite obssessive if I don't let myself be. Remember to listen to your body, stop when you're full and always take note of how you feel when you do eat unhealthy. I usually feel like crap so I tell myself, eat healthy and I'll feel great. Weight has been a struggle for me ALL my life. You're not alone :) Hang in there and make 2011 a good one!
