(I was trying to show off Mandy's Christmas bows!)
I have decided to make 2012 my year of becoming a socialite in my city of Charlotte, NC. Easier said than done, right? Well, in my first post about my new quest for the socialite life, I focused more on my physical appearance-my weight, more specifically. Have I reached my goal weight of 127 yet? Heavens no! I honestly slipped up over the holidays which cause dramatic weight gain. I went from eating only 1200-1400 calories a day to eating....yeah, I'm not even sure how many calories I ate this holiday! I probably cause my body more harm that week of only eating 1200-1400 calories than good. My body probably went into starvation mode, so when it saw all of the yummy Christmas fat that I was eating on Christmas, it probably held onto it for dear life! The heaviest I got was 138! After Christmas, I decided to get on a 2000 calorie diet, like I was before, and just step up the working out. I got the Zumba 2 Wii game for Christmas, so I have been using that, along with walking Mandy! Now I am down to 133 lbs, and I have muscles! I can feel ab muscles that I've never felt before!
I will reach 127 one day, but I'm not stressing out about it like I did before. Besides, the reason that I want to be a socialite in the first place has nothing to do with my appearance. Party For Autism, the non-profit organization I started, is the reason I want to become a socialite in Charlotte, so that I can spread the word and have bigger events. I'll keep you guys updated on my success!
