On to the topic of exercising. Something cool I saw on Katie's blog today really clicked with me. She was posting about losing weight & I guess she has lost weight a couple of times but she posted a picture of her at the same weight two different times. Both times she weighed 153 lbs (I can't find the stupid post, but when I do I'll link to it) but the first time she weighed that much she did it w/o exercising & at that time she wore a size 14. The 2nd time she weighed that much she was running & she wore a size 4/6. Now, that really hit home with me. I mean I know I've said I'm a calories in/calories out girl & I just really didn't think that exercising would make that much of a difference. I know plenty of people that have lost weight just w/counting calories alone, BUT to see how much of a difference there was in her at the same weight w/exercising REALLY opened my eyes to the fact that I NEED to be exercising. I mean what's the point of losing 100 lbs if I'm still not going to be at my best? Sooo, I guess I'm going to sit down & really plot out my work out routine. As I stated above, I start back to school full time in 8 days, so it's going to have to be something that I can incorporate into my schedule. Fortunately my school has an AWESOME gym (I mean, so I hear, I haven't actually been in there) which I have full access too. So, maybe I can somehow incorporate that into my workout plan. Whatever it is, I'll let you know once I figure it out, but I know now, that working out is not an optional thing. I want to be the best 178 lb person I can be!!
