Monday July 30 Weigh in

Today is the day! Back on track. 

258.6! 

Right before I left for vacation I was 262 then 259 when I got back. Jumped up to 266 for a while and now back down. YaY! 

Bootcamp started this week. Still toying with the idea of signing up for it 3 days a week. Or maybe I will just wait until next month. I don’t really have extra money to blow on it. Plus I have a gym membership. I can workout at home and at the park for the month. 

I started a new birth control pill and it’s making me SOOOO sleepy. All the time. All I want to do is sleep. -.-

May 14 Weigh In

This last week I went to Dallas to visit a mate of mine and we did a lot of drinking, eating and well… laying about. But I brought some healthy food with me and I rocked it. 

Scale says…. 262.6!!! 

That means I am down 1.8 lbs this past week. Now this does not really seem that great… BUT come on, I was on holiday and STILL lost weight. fabooooo! 

May 7 Weigh In

Hello! My apologies for being late AGAIN this week with my weigh in. I lost 1.1 lbs this past week. :( 

I’ve got a boy that I like and we erm.. have a different kind of exercise routine. Boy am I dirty! hahaha

He wants to lose some weight as well so I’m trying to help motivate him. It’s nice to be there for each other. 

I signed up for bootcamp again and I will start that next week. I drove to Dallas to see a friend of mine for the week. She is trying to lose weight as well so hopefully this will be motivating instead of us being fat and laying about drinking. >.<

Going to bed! It’s 5am! Drove thru the night. -.- 

April 16 Weigh In

The magic number is 269.4! I lost 4.6 lbs this week. Finally! I’ve been waiting for a bigger number again. lol. 

But I’ve also decided that I just want to try to lose around 10 lbs a month. I think that’s completely reasonable. Right? I know everywhere I look it says 2 lbs a week is like the magic number. 

My birthday is this upcoming weekend. I don’t know what I’m going to be doing but I’m sure I might mess up some progress, but I’m ok with that. 

I didn’t go to bootcamp this morning because my side is in agony. I’m currently laying on a bamboo mat on the floor with an ice pack on it. eugh.

Friday at bootcamp I ran a 1/4 mile in 2:42! Ok, so there was about 8 seconds of me walking (whilst huffing and puffing) but then the trainer yelled out to me to speed up. I cursed him under my breath and started running again. After I finished some of the girls were like “good job!” Yes, I may have been the largest and slowest… but I finished less than 10 seconds after the 2nd to last person! 

I think I’m going to sign up for another month of bootcamp because I hate myself. Or rather because I love myself. I want to be the best me I can be! 

April 2 Weigh In

Today the number is 275.1! That means this week I lost 3.1 lbs. 

So that means in one month I lost 11.5 lbs. 

I admit… I wanted it to be a bigger number but I know that since I’m not on any fad diet that I’m not going to lose weight super quickly. It’s a long hard road… and completely worth it. 

Keep it up!

I last wore this shirt around Christmas and it hugged onto my fat roll like a fat kid with a box of donuts. Now it&#8217;s loose fitting on my stomach and let me just say&#8230; I was not I repeat NOT holding in my stomach for this picture. Since that time I&#8217;ve lost 23(ish) pounds. Life is awesome. I love this shirt. I love myself for what I&#8217;m doing. Little triumphs for the win. Keep on keeping on!

Bootcamp this week

So, you’ll all be happy to know that I’m the largest and most out of shape person there. *tear

And today we had to sign in and my name wasn’t on the list so one of the trainers wrote it in. Then during one of the exercises I hear him say my name then “kick higher!” I looked at him like “Are you kidding?” Then he said “Yea, I know your name now! Haha!”…. Oh Joy! 

Whenever it gets really hard? I just tell myself “Yup, you did this to yourself. You even PAID to have this done to you.” -.-

Need to get some sleep.. have to wake up at 4:30. Eugh!

Also, I have heard a little about this No Weigh In April thing? I don’t know if I should do that… although, how awesome would it be to wait for so long and see how much you’ve lost! Although, on the other hand… if I didn’t lose a lot I would be PISSED that I hadn’t been looking at the scale and trying to change something to improve the numbers. Hmmph. I’m ponder on this a wee bit more before making a decision. Anyway, bed time! 

Sleep tight! Don’t let the bed bugs bite! Napping tomorrow will be AMAZING!

First post!

Hello! 

So, I’m just a girl that’s in a wedding later this year and my goal is to NOT be the fat bridesmaid of the group. There are 3 other bridesmaids in the party and we all vary in size. I’m not the largest girl… but she has tits the size of my head so no one will notice anything other than that. 

I’m going to be taking some pictures soon to post to show where I am starting from and you can follow this blog if you want to see my weight loss journey. 

I’m 28, 5’11, and weigh 285 lbs (size 20 and sometimes a 22!). At the beginning of the year I was at 299! I SWORE to myself that I wouldn’t go over 300. 

I figured this blog would be a great way for me to keep track of my progress and if I had people watching it then they would be my motivation. (Come on fatty, you can’t blog that you ate fried chicken and cupcakes and went up 5 lbs!)

So my weight loss goals are just that I want to lose my stomach, hopefully my enormous hips will go down a bit, and I no longer wish to wave to the entire room when I move my arms. 

As for my diet? I’m just trying to eat better for a healthier life. I’ve tried to control my weight by counting calories, cutting carbs, taking pills, etc. And it just never works for me. So this time? I’m just eating healthier foods and exercising. And it SUCKS. But I need to do it.
