Life as it is today....

It's been a while since I have written a blog, even though I have been wanting to write one for a while now. But I think last night really set me off. My dad called me last night and we talked about normal family things and then right before we got off the phone he was asking me about my weight loss. He pissed me off by have the gall to get onto me about not getting to the gym as much as I should lately. Telling me how easy it is to gain the weight back. I hate when talks to me like I am a child, I'm 33 years old and have been at this weight loss journey for close to a year and half. Even with the slight gain of about 5 lbs or so I'm still down over 90 lbs over all. All my smallest size clothing still fits without any issues. 


Yes, I know that I have somewhat slacked at getting to the gym the last three weeks or so and I let my food choices not be what they should be and I will take all the responsibility of that. But I haven't given up totally. My life has changed a lot this past month. Our car situation changed so that we are back to sharing one car, so its been a bit of a challenge to nail down a schedule that works for both my husband and I, and I think that we have found one that will work. I'm trying to finish up my schooling by the end of the year so that I can hopefully have a job by the first of the year to help out more with our family and I'm also volunteering more in my husband's squadron, taking over a position that I'm happy that the spouse's have that much faith in me. So I'm a lot more busier than I was a few months ago.I'm also struggling with some sort of cough/congestion, but not letting it stop me totally. These aren't excuses, they are just the way things are and now that I have all of this going on I need to figure a schedule so that I don't let the gym fall to the wayside. I also need to get back to really paying attention to what I'm eating and how much I'm eating. I have had so much success for so long that maybe instead of a plateau my body and mind decided to rebel at the gym. I have said many times that the body is a strange creature. And I still hold onto to that, lol.


I guess my point is that: Yes, I do let people know what is going on with my weight loss and I do look for support when I'm not feeling like its going as well as I want but don't insult me and treat me like I'm stupid. Either support me or keep your mouth shut, making me feel like crap isn't going to help! And as far as my dad goes I'll just lie and say everything is good since I don't want to fight with him.

  1. Oh this would have pissed me off too. Girl you have done awesome and parents seem to always see where we have been instead of where we are going.

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 …

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…
