So so week
Aug 25, 2009
So, I have been doing Medifast for 1 week now and lost 1.5 pounds. Most everyone loses about 5 pounds the first week, but I am going to be satisfied with my 1.5. I am really doing it more for the protein and I know I am not like everyone else. I did make the gym more this week, but I need to do better on that also.
So...here goes another week :)
Been a while....
Aug 17, 2009
So...it has been a while since my last post. My weight has really done nothing and I have had a lot going on in my life, so this has been the last thing on my mind.
So, with a re-newed spirit I am back and ready to start loosing again! Get my butt in the gym and feel good!!
I was surprised today when I weighed in that I am actually down a few pounds since I last weighed in. I have been feeling that I have gained so I am now worried that I have lost some muscle weight, which is not good at all. So, I am at 162.5 and it is good place to start.
I have also decided to eat some of the Medifast meals. I have had friends who have had great success with it and so I am going to do it. For me, it is more about the fact that I can actually get in my protein with these meals easier than on my own. I have been terrible with my eating lately...lots of carbs!! So, I am going to try this for a couple of weeks to get back on track and then go back to eat normal...well, better than normal :)
ok, that is all for now...I need to go fix my crazy picture I have on here!

So, the last few weeks has been hard....my weight is bouncing up and down and it is stressful. One week I am at 165 amd then I am back to 169! ahhh!!! I am trying not to worry and just keep at the exercise, but it is hard not to. Yesterday I worked out with my old trainer and that felt wonderful. I am going to try to keep focus on feeling good and not the scale...wish me luck!
Getting harder now....

I am thankful for every pound now....this week it was 1 1/2 and I will take it and be happy!
Almost 1 year!

Happy Anniversary to me!! Tomorrow will be 1 year from my surgery and life is still wonderful! Today I weighed and I lost 3 pounds! FINALLY!! It has been about 3 weeks since I lost any, so I was getting a little worried. I only have 12 pounds to go for my goal. My goal will just get me into the "Normal" range BMI, but I hope to lose beyond that, but if I don't I am sooo ok with myself. As long as I feel good and healthy, then I am happy!!
I will post 1 year pictures soon!!!
Another week and a big surprise.....
Apr 08, 2009
So, I went up a pound yesterday when I weighed in. I should be nervous, but I am ok with it since it is that time of the month. The biggest surprise is my clothes size!!! I bought 2 shirts that were size MEDIUM, wearing my friends size 12 hand me down pants, and can even fit into a size 8 shirt!!! ahhh!!! I am almost speechless about this. I have my goals on this website and I also have goals on my own computer and I never never thought to even put these down as goals because I never thought I would be here!! I honestly thought if I could get into a size L and a 14 that would be it for me and here I am!! Life is great, I love my new body and where it is taking me!!
I am going in today for my 1 year checkup. My 1 year surgery anniversary is not until the 29th, so it will be interesting to see what I can do by then!! I will post how my check up goes!!!
What I love....

looking at my ticker on my profile page. I remember when it was way to the left and now it is way to the right...love it!
So, I lost more weight but I had confirmed yesterday what I feared. My Lean Mass has gone up, so I am losing muscle right now. I really need to get in the gym and get on the weights...quick!!
Still stuck in a rut!

Ok, so I am down 1 and 1/2 pounds this week and it is not good. I know at this point I am losing muscle because I have not been exercising and eating terrible. I have a list of excuses that go on forever, but I have to change this...soon!! I have worked way too hard to be here!!!
Hoping for better news next week!
Need to get with it....

Ok, I have to admit that ever since I hit the 150 down mark I have been very lax in my quest for a healthy life. I have been snacking on stuff I shouldn't and not exercising much. Yep, I have a ton of excuses....the twins have been stressful, busy with my step-son's spring break...yada, yada but I know it is just that...excuses! So, I am just going to re-focus and get back on the gravy train and start again. Today I will exercise, eat right, and drink my water!! Today is going to be a good day!
Oh, even though I was bad I finally managed to drop that 1/2 pound so I am down 151 now, yippee!!
On to my good day!
Really Big Day! or should I say "Small Day!".....

Drum roll please.....
I am now down 150 pounds!!!!!
I did my weigh in yesterday and I was 1/2 pound over so I weighed again today and I am 1/2 under! yay!! It feels so great to be here, I am so happy with myself. The best part is that a few days ago Bobby asked me , "If you stopped losing today, would you be happy" and I answered "yes". I am actually very happy with myself now and even though I would not mind losing more, I have come so far and I love my body and my energy levels, so I can not complain. I have a feeling that since I am still enjoying going to the gym, that I will continue to lose and that is also fine, but I really am proud and happy with myself!!!
Life is good!!!
Time for a new picture!!!
