Why hello there!
I'm Olivia, and I'm 17 years old! I live in Southern California. You know, the place with all the beautiful skinny tanned celebrities? Hahah that's a tad bit of an exaggeration but anyway....
I'm going to be blogging with these lovely ladies from now on! BUT I haven't gotten the Hungry Girl Books yet, I've just been dieting.
I have been dieting for exactly one week. I will share my weight with you too because as long as the numbers going down I can share ;D hahaha.
So on April 1,2010 I weighed about 170 pounds (which is considered overweight for my height). I decided I was going to go on a diet that day because I had tried on some dresses for prob and was very unhappy (almost to the point of tears) with how my body looked. Well, mainly my arms. This was also around the time that the girls started this blog,so I knew I'd have good support! Also, when I did powderpuff in March, it was much harder for me to play and I played a lot worse, so I knew I was having some "issues" that I needed to fix.
Since I don't have pictures or anything of my meals here is kind of what I have been doing:
LIMITED white bread (used to be none at all but I broke that...)
FRUIT FRUIT FRUIT. fresh only! (my fave is PINEAPPLE)
100% fruit juice and WATER to drink (going strong after a week...) I quit soda in June 08 but "relapsed" (hahah) in January so I'm back on that!
LIMITED fried foods (I had Fried Mac N Cheese Balls at Cheesecake Factory on easter as a "splurge"......but it literally went through me in about 5 seconds so I definately don't intend on having fried stuff often)
No Fast Food (Ever since February I get out of school really early and my dad offers to get me food. It usually ended up to be mcdonalds 2-3 times a week, which is why I gained so much)
WORK OUT! (I never worked out..but now I have a Y membership for the gym there..when I can't get there I do stuff at home!)
Something else that's really helped is Sparkpeople, Which I found out from Vee on this blog. Since I'm underage I'm on the sparkteens one, so if you want to add me my name thing is "oliviafresh" :)
If you want to keep up with me besides what I post on this Blog
Thanks for reading!
P.S. Should I post from Now as Day 1 or Day 8? hmmmmmmm *ponderrrrrrrrrrrr*
