Time to weigh in!!

Today is the 2 month mark since my last weigh in. Except for last Sunday, I had to weigh in for my dietbet. Anyway, like I said in a previous post I was blown away when I got on the scale. At my last weigh in, April 26, I had lost a total of 46 pounds and set a goal to lose 24 pounds by June 26. That would give a total loss of 70 pounds. As the date got closer I really didn’t think I would hit my goal. I had randomly snacked more than I would have liked, have been getting very little sleep, and almost never drink enough water.

Things I need to do:

As of this morning,  I have lost a total of 80.4 pounds. What?!?! Omg! Woo hoo!!! That is 10.4 pounds over my goal. Which means I have lost 34.4 pounds since April 26! Again….Woo Hoo!!!!

Lol. Ok I’m done woo hooing. 😉

I <3 Endorphins

I love working out. I love getting my heart pumping and feeling the beads of sweat. I love working my body and seeing how strong it is. I have moments where I just want to be lazy and would rather lay on the couch than work out. There are times during my workout that I wish it was over because it is so hard, but I keep pushing.

I am so glad when I don’t give up. The after feeling, that high, is the very best feeling in the world. Endorphins make me happy. Lol. I know they are supposed to do that. I cannot describe the difference a workout makes on my mood and my outlook. The endorphins are better than any drug I could imagine. I wish I could feel that way all the time. It’s a pretty amazing feeling.

Life is good

Started my dietbet today. Really excited! I had heard about it several times recently but up until a fellow blogger mentioned dietbet I had forgotten about it. ( I will put a link to the other blog tom.) I will lose 4% in 4 weeks. I am super competitive, even if it’s just a goal I set for myself. This is a personal competition. I want to do it for me. I’m not competing with all the other people doing it (well I guess technically I kind of am, but anyway). I want everyone to succeed, myself included. A few days ago, I noticed myself trying to stick to my healthy eating even more, working out more, and working to get more steps in. I want to be healthier and keep losing and i think this will help keep me motivated. 🙂

On another note, my 2 month weigh in is Thur. but I had to weigh in a little early for the dietbet. I set a small goal at my last weigh in and let’s just say I was blown away when I got on the scale. I will do my normal weigh in on Thur. but may have to change it to monthly depending on if I do another dietbet. 

Lol. Wow how many times can I say dietbet?! I need to get a grip but I really am excited. Even with some slip ups, everything is going well and I feel sooo good. 🙂 I guess that’s all for now. Off to study and then sleep.

Have an awesome week!!!!

If it looks, walks, and quacks like a duck……

I must be a duck. Or, well, a chicken actually. 
I know I have posted about growing out of or shrinking out of my clothes and needing to get rid of them. I have also read several places not to keep clothes once you have lost and they don’t fit. It has something to do with not regaining the weight and having them as an easy cushion just in case. Getting rid of them makes you work to not regain because you would have to buy all new “fat” clothes. Anyway, i can’t seem to do it. I can’t part with them. I think I’m scared, chicken. A small part of me is so scared that this isn’t going to work. That after all the hard work, I’m going to gain it back. They are like a security blanket that I can hide under.  I don’t have any attachment to them and never have a problem getting rid of old clothes. I don’t know what my problem is. I know that I’m losing but cant move forward mentally. The mental part of this whole journey is by far the hardest. How do you win an argument with yourself?  Idk. Anyway, I guess I should just make myself do it.

I’m excited to get new clothes but how do I get rid of the old? Has anyone else had this problem?

Yum! Lunch ;)

So I had to share my super yummy lunch today.
1/2 whole wheat pita opened up
2 tblspn garlic hummus
1 1/2 ounce paprika chicken
Onions, bell peppers and more garlic
1/2 cup spinich
1 tblspn of parm cheese

Healthy, well proportioned, and such a freaking good lunch. Lol Had protein, good carbs, healthy fat, veggies. Yeah!

Have a great weekend!! 🙂

The good, the bad, and some tmi.

So as the title say the good, the bad, and the tmi. Lol. I visited a friend this weekend and ate horribly on sat but did well on sunday. I had prepped for it all week and I really don’t feel guilty about it because it was fun, not an everday occurance, and so worth it. Felt miserable afterwards but will survive. I drank a TON of water too. Apparently, I’m a camel when it comes to water lol.
It was so nice to get out of town and just hang out and not have to worry about work, school, or losing weight. Of course the losing weight is always there but not my 1st thought.
I would say this friend is one of my biggest supporters and always makes me feel good. She has been through this process and lost a lot of weight before so it’s nice to be able to talk to her about it. Even though we went about it differently, she knows what I’m going through from my newly formed bat wings to my “dripping” inner thighs. We talked about how impossible it is to lose weight in our middle. I swear mine is never going to leave. It’s like a rent controlled apartment in a good neighborhood, close to work. I’m screwed. I know it will eventually go but I’m not looking forward to looking like an apple with pretzel stick legs.
My amazing friend, gave me several pairs of paints and Victoria ‘s secret bras she had outgrown. Only one pair of the pants fit now, VS large sweatpant. I’m thinking they run big lol but it felt good to be in a large.
I was very hesitant about the bras. I new I had outgrown mine but wasn’t sure I could fit into her size 36DD/D VS bras. I have never been able to wear VS or a 36 so I was nervous. I tried them on anyway. They were a little snug but I could handle it. Lol here comes the tmi. My boobs, we’ll they are a tad too big still. I had lost quite a bit in them but in VS standards they were still huge. Seriously, if I blinked or if the wind hit them it was going to be full on nippage. Lol. Other than that, I was so excited I could put them on. Have to keep working and get into everything now.

Hope everyone has a great week!

So far, so good.

Even though it’s only Thursday, I have done really well this week. Have eaten super healthy and nothing more. Good proportions and everything. Yeah! I have even been to the gym everyday on top of going back to school. It’s hard having to go the gym at 10 at night but it’s worth it and I’m glad I went.
My problem lately is I want to cut my workouts short. I can get to the gym and get going and then I am like I don’t want to do this lol but I still make myself. I think just taking on so much is burning me out. I will work through this and try to stay focused on the big picture. I also need to remind myself of what I want in the long run not just right now.

Hope everyone is having an awesome week!
