Thoughts on my weigh in today plus another random thought.

You know what the best thing about weight loss is: how the damn scale yo-yos back and forth with my weight....NOT!! One week I'm 149.2 and the next 150.2. Yes, I know the reasons why its back up to 150.2 and those reasons are: not really being as careful with my food this week, not getting in all of my workouts and the fact that my period is due to start some time this weekend, hence the not so carefulness of my eating. And yes, it's only a pound...but let me tell ya that pound is hard as shit to get off. I have spent the last 2.5 months working off 10 lbs.  I'm not terribly upset about the "gain" as I know what its from and there's a good chance that it will be gone by the end of the weekend. Yet, it's still so frustrating. 


I am one of "those" people who is a scale watcher and I have come to accept that. But I don't let the number on the scale determine how my day is going to go. I will still go to the gym and do my workout how I had planned it out...I will not try to do more so that number will go down since in the end it will all average itself out. I might pout a minute or two until the reality of it sinks in, but that to me is human nature. In the last year I have had a few times where I have gained weight back and I didn't let it stop me and this measly little 16 ounces isn't going to either. I will be solidly in the the 140's by the end of this month!! And to me that would be around 147-148....only 2-3 lbs and I still have two weeks left. Yep...I'm gonna make that goal!!


Plus I'm trying to keep in mind that I'm building more and more muscle every week as I continue to lift weights and that when I go back for my BOD POD test at the beginning of December that I will have the results of not only less body weight but less body fat too.


Onto another topic...


This morning as I was relaxing before the kids had to get up for school I had a random thought pop in my head. Last year at Christmas time my mom took a group shot of all of us since we haven't been together in so many years. At this time I was right about 200 lbs. This year when we have the picture taken I am hoping to be 135 lbs...that's only about 15 lbs from where I am now and I have little over 3 months to get there. I really can't wait to see the difference. That will be a 65 lb difference in photos...with an over all weight lost of about 107 lbs. 


Here's a picture of what I looked like last Christmas....can't wait to show an updated picture in a few months. 


I'm the one in the yellow (yuck!)

2014 Update

It's been a while since I wrote a blog...almost a year in fact...

I have struggled so much with my weight over the last couple of years. I went from about 145 lbs up to 200 lbs. I'm back down in the 190's but so upset since I was so happy when I was in the 140s. I need to tighten my belt, for lack of better words, and get back to watching my diet and really and truly get back to counting calories since I know that works for me. 

What really is heart breaking for me is going up in size in clothing. I went from wearing a size 8 to a 14, now back down to 12. I hate buying new clothes when I ones I love just sitting in my closet now being worn.

The good thing this all is that I truly never gave up working out. I might have not been doing it at the intensity that I was in the past but that has change about 5 months ago. Five months ago I found CrossFit and fell in love. I have found through this program that it is very humbling and empowering. I have done more things that I have n…

Opinions Needed/Wanted....

So, through out this whole process of me dropping this weight my one want, my one hope would be that my legs would slim down. When I was at my highest weight I carried my weight pretty much all over my body, though my stomach was very big, but so were my legs, arms, and face. And as I have dropped the weight I have lost the weight in my face, arms and stomach, but I feel that my legs are still as big as ever. When trying on pants I don't necessarily worry so much as if they will fit in the waist or being too long since I'm short I know I will always run into problems there, lol. No, my worry is if the pants are going to fit over my calves and thighs. My wish is to be able to wear calf length or even knee high boots this fall and with the size of my legs that wish isn't going to be coming true any time soon. Plus I've noticed that I'm either going to need to stick with floor length or above the knee dresses as anything that falls in between make my legs look stumpy …
