Under 200lbs!!!!

Friday, May 23, 2008

FINALLY!!! It's here. The day that I've been waiting for since I started this weight loss kick in March. For the first time in over a year, I can finally say that I'm under 200lbs. This feels so great. To celebrate, I'm going to see my family in Philly and celebrate my cousin and her baby-on-the-way, my grandmother's new move to a senior home, my uncle's move to his own place, and my boyfriend's new job, and my being under 200lbs!!! My family's got it going on right But I'm so proud of my success and I know that if it wasn't for the many words of encouragement on SP, I probably would've stopped working as hard. So thanks to my SP family!!! We all got it going on! Let's celebrate!!!

Down to a Size 12

Tuesday, May 13, 2008

I am SOO happy. The profile picture with me in the black dress is a size 12. test the theory, I put on a pair of jeans today that are a size 11 (which happen to be my favorite jeans) and I haven't been able to fit them without having bulging love handles spill over the top of them for a couple of years now. Even when I was 165, the jeans still didn't do quite right but they are there now. Back to the way they fit when first purchased in '03!

So I can't wait to put on my new bathing suit. I had it on a couple of weeks ago when my boyfriend and I went to the pool at Georgetown but I hadn't lost the 2''. So hopefully I look "show stoppingly awesome" in it now! :) Maybe I'll post some more pics soon. :)


20 lbs down looks good on me!

Monday, May 05, 2008

I'll post a picture as soon as my boyfriend sends it to me from his camera phone or as soon as I get one from one of the many photographs taken on Saturday but before I do, let me tell you that I must've looked horrible because I looked GOOD on Saturday!

My church held this mother-daughter brunch thing where you were supposed to get all dressed up in hat and gloves. I wasn't going at first because my mom passed in '06 but I went with my best friend's mom. I didn't know what I was going to wear but after I realized that I lost 20lbs, just for kicks, I tried on my 9th grade homecoming dress. It fit perfectly! (OK, it could've been a little looser but it wasn't so bad that I couldn't sit, stand, or perform normal functions as a woman. Put it like this: it was a little too tight for church but since this wasn't at church, just with church people, it was fine.) It was a black dress that has little slots on the top half of it. Since all I could find was white gloves, I went to DSW and found some 4'' white heels that had the black slots at the top that matched the dress. I also found a black sunhat at Rite-Aid. I looked good. I gave myself a wet set and worked it like I was some kind of runway model.

I got SO many compliments from the fact that I lost weight and how good I looked. Oh man! It was such a wonderful feeling. I felt like I had been on "What Not to Wear" and this was my "coming out" party to reveal the new me. Or like I was on "Extreme Home Makeover" and they "moved the bus" to see the new me. I was watching "Deion and Pilar (Sanders) Primetime" and Deion has this saying that held true for me on Saturday: "When you look good, you feel good; When you feel good, you play good; When you play good, they pay good." Now all the playing and paying thing didn't hold true but I sure looked and felt good. There were so many emotions that I was feeling that day but all of them were all positive and all towards the goal of where I want to be.

My boyfriend thinks that I'm getting to skinny and my trainer called me "bony" the other day. I just have really small arms for my shoulders to be so broad. I am by no means of any sense of the word skinny. I can't wait to post my new pics to have everyone see the new me!


20lbs down and about 20 more to go!!!!

Monday, April 28, 2008

So, I've been at this now for...10 WEEKS!!! Probably the longest that I've ever stayed on a "diet" plan so this may work for life! I am definitely feeling happier, sexier, and LIGHTER! I've gone from 221 to 201 in 9 weeks. (I started SP about 3 weeks into my "Get Fit" journey.) I've impressed myself! I cannot say how much I've appreciated the love and support from my SP groups/teams when the scale wasn't moving.

The next goal....get under 200lbs by the end of the week.

My Food Tips for Staying On Track

Monday, March 31, 2008

100 Calorie Snacks....A must to any recovering snack food addict! I try to limit to once a day, or once a week depending on how good/bad my diet was for the week.

Snack Bags...A must for portion control. Most of the "snacks" that we have should fit in that snack size bag with extra room and it's convenient for grabbing cereal on the go as well. Whereas it use to take me about 15 minutes to figure out what to have for lunch then pack it, after I figure out what to have, I just grab it, as it is already portioned and go.

Tuna/Salmon/Chicken in a cup/ easy, low-calorie meal that is good for post workouts .

One-A-Day Weight daily multivitamin. Take with food.

Edamame...a great source of soy. Many people haven't heard of this but they are available at most sushi bars and at Japanese Steakhouses.
