03/07/08 12MONTHS OUT TO THE DAY!!! HAPPY 1ST YEAR
Mar 17, 2008
woohoo, can I say woohoo
for a moment there I was having difficulty with my energy level but I ordered tables instead of chewables and additionally I take a b-12 complex and wohoo, it makes a difference like night and day.. very important for all newbies please please take your vitamins, protein and drink at least 2litters of water daily, not when you remember, it has to be done daily if not you will feel run down, also you must sleep at least 8hrs a day specially when you are working out daily. Do I regret it NO, will I do it again YES…. Has it change my life YES Im I healthier YES, do I eat healthy Yes 90% of the time do I excersice Yes 5times a week. This is how is changed my life, Im Healthy and loving it, im actually training to run a 5k marathon. Do I push my body to its limits everyday yes, I even decided to go back to school and become a nurse, a year ago I would have not even had the energy to think that I could loose 85lbs what so ever think about going back to school. Now I feel like I can do anything I want, before I just simply did not have the energy or the drive to do anything. Wow, I do look fabulous and feel fabulous, do I get the point that I look that way No, sometimes I have to do a double take when I walk by a mirror. People always tell me that I look fabulous and that I feels good, I even bought myself a miniskirt. I have never own a miniskirt since I been thick since I was a child I feel that im finally able to wear cute teenage attire. Could I have lost more than 85lbs in one year? I probably could have but I’m very satisfied w\my success and results of the surgery. If I would have lost weight faster maybe my skin would not be doing as well is it is doing, most of it is shrinking along with my body except under my arms witch genetically I have always had that problem but im toning and shrinking. I have 35lbs more lbs to loos. Im I in a hurry to loose them? No, when it happens it will happen, I feel like I have already accomplished so much that I will not put a deadline on the rest of my weight. Im doing all the right things so the scale has nowhere else to go but down… I feel liberated from my weight and now is a pleasure to weight in every week because even if the scale does not move at all I feel ok because I know that it will eventually move. Thank you Jesus!!! I owe everything to you!!!

01/23/08 we had a potluck
Jan 30, 2008
we had a potluck and ate a little of everything did I feel guilty, No not one bit because I new that I would burn it off at the gym that same day. Everyone around me was miserable in the afternoon because they overate and I was so comfortable because the surgery keeps me from overeating, is so liberating that I will never again feel that drowsy, bloated and ancomfortable from overeating!! Im so blessed and happy with my surgery because it has taught me self control around food and that is priceless!!!
01/16/08 My birthday weekend
Jan 30, 2008
My birthday weekend, OMG I looked and felt so good, I had 3 different celebrations and bought myself two different dresses and I felt so good in them. For once in my life I was not worried about how the pictures were going to turn out nor did I feel uncomfortable amongs my skinny, hot goodlooking friends because im one of them now, everyone was complimenting how Hot and how Good I looked and even the bar owener was hitting on me because I was the b-day girl. I read people stories of how other people treat them different once their weight is off and is true, people are more willing to do things for you when you are fit and look good, I mean even I do that and I had not noticed till now. The only uncomfortable part about being thin is that guys hit on me and I do not like it, makes me feel uncomfortable because im happily married but even my husband is more touchie touchie with me…I guess boys are boys right!! Well I right this and im still 40lbs till goal but I already fill like a thin person, specially when I tell people I still have to loose 40some lbs and their face drops and they tell me are you sure? You are thin already.!!!

01/09/08 48weeks 181lbs -76lbs 10months
Jan 10, 2008
One pound, I have mixed feelings about it, did I really loose a pound or is it just water weight? I guess a pound is better than nothing, im steel a size 14 and they are beginning to be a little loos, I so want to get pass the 180 I just feel like I could be doing better, Since last week I dropped my carbs, started drinking my protein shakes, drinking my water, goind to be early and no munchies late night, so why only a pound, im hoping my body is trying to readjust and will catch up next week…The one thing im very proud of is my running I ran yesterday for 25min non stop at a speed of 4.0 and at a incline of 2 in the threadmill, im so happy about that. I feel so relaxed and balance after I run that I want to do it everyday, Im developing a love for running,,,yes!!!
01/04/07 47weeks 182lbs -75lbs
Jan 10, 2008
Today was a big milestone, I ran 16min nonstop in the treadmill and the last minute I pushed my body to run faster, I feel good. When I started back in March I could not run my ankles could not hold my weight and now im running 16min non stop wow im so proud of myself. I started with a minute then in two minute increments, then 3 minute increments then 5min increments and now I did 16min non stop, wow!! You know I would always see people running marathons and just running out in the street and I would say they are crazy I would never be able to do that nor do I want to. But now im like I really want to run and one day I want to run a marathon I crave running now, im developing a passion for it, to push yourself that extra minute when you think you cannot go no more and when I do it I feel so good about myself,,,is on addicting feeling….I love it I love it!
ok ok what is going on with me, im late night snacking. Last night I was eating cheese and crackers and a thought came, ‘Im hindering my weight loss efforts with these snacks’ This morning I had to push my protein shake down because I was not hungry and now I feel awful. How did I not see it before,,im hindering my efforts with late night eating, right before I go to bed. This is a bad habit that I must break. Im disappointed because I know now this is what is holding me back. How do I change it? I must go to bed earlier like 10 before super hunger arrives, I usually go to bed at midnight and Im snacking between 10-12am because I eat dinner at 6pm. Do you have any other suggestions?

09/12/07 31weeks out 195lbs -62lbs
Sep 12, 2007
The new season of biggest looser started and im even more motivated to continue my exercise program. Im focusing on abs this week because they still show a lot. I was at my really good friends wedding last weekend in rosarito beach and it was so fun and beautiful. I was relief to see that the scale did move since I ate tacos and all the good stuff but only ate one here and there nothing like I would have before. I’m beginning to realize what a huge impact portion sizes make on my weight. I love to eat small amounts of food through out the day. When we go out to eat on the weekends I still order regular food portions and end up taking ¾ of it home and usually gets thrown out after a few days of it being in the fridge I need to order appetizers or small side salads. It’s not good to waste food and money. I guess my fear of being hungry still hunts me!!!
09/05/07 30weeks out 197lbs -60lbs 6month anniversary
Sep 12, 2007
Im so happy six months out and down 60lbs I was afraid I might not make my 60lbs goal. Im still exercising 4-6times\week and feeling amazing, sometimes I feel tired put is because im not taking enough protein so I take in more and voila I feel great again. I descover that beef jerky is my new best friend, high in protein low in calories and fat. I’m actually looking to make my own because beef jerky is somewhat expensive.
