Halfway to my goal with photos, Onederland!

Tuesday, April 16, 2013

So here I am! I have been working my butt off, I have been counting my calories, eliminating all processed foods, and really started to enjoy working out! Slowly but surely the weight has been coming off, I have went from a size 20 to now a size 14 or 16! I have went from an XXL to a Large. I have learned to cook and am building muscle....and it appears the tattoo on my back has even changed shape...wow! I just hit onederland, unoficially yesterday, weigh in day is wednesday, but at the time of this photo I was 198.9lbs! I will not give up until I am healthy and fit! Here is to losing the next 50lbs!!!

My first goals reached!

Monday, January 07, 2013

I did it, I ran a whole mile on the treadmill without walking! Now mind you I did stay to around 4.5-6.0 the whole time, and it was on a treadmill, but I am very proud of this. I also got my time down to 12:01!
This is the fastest I have run a mile in quite a few years! Since 2008 to be exact!
So now my goal is to work on my breathing more while running so my heart rate doesnt spike as much along with being able to jog for longer periods of time. I would love to be able to do a mile in 8min! That is one of my final goals! Along with doing a half marathon in Disney next year!
My second goal was weightloss after the holiday, I weighed in today and was at 235.5! That means I lost about 4 lbs in december, a month which I had eaten without tracking!! Woohoo!!! No gain over Christmas! Now onto my goals for the rest of the month.
-Keep working out and making good food choices
-run a mile a few times a week
-Lose 6 more lbs in January, which would bring me down to 229.5 by the end of the month and out of the 230's!

Back again....5 years later

Friday, January 04, 2013

So here I am, years later, married now, in my own place, and.....what?!?! 25lbs heavier than I was 5 years ago!!! No way, this needs to be fixed. So here I am at 24 and I weighed about 253 at my heaviest. I have in the past few months started working out and eating right again. With living on my own, fast food has become all too commonplace along with emotional eating and just eating out way too much. So with the new year comes serious work. I took a little time off around Christmas this year, I was down to 239lbs before the holidays, I have not weighed myself yet, but I will when I hit the gym again this comming wednesday. I have also signed up for Hot Yoga and am working with a personal trainer. I also ran a 5k in November and did it in 45min, I was pretty proud of that and am looking to bring my time down to 35min! I have attached a photo of myself at what I think I was heaviest, at that 253...that is my wonderful husband with me, yes the same man I was dating all those years ago when I started on here....we got married, I however did not wear my size 8 wedding dress, it was a size 14.....boo.....but we are going to get married in the church and I will get a NEW wedding dress! So I have a new goal! So heres to the rest of my life!

    Sounds like you're moving in the right direction.... stay active, eat clean and you will see amazing results, sometimes we are much too hard on ourselves then we become our own worst enemy but losing weight is simple.... and that's what I'm telling myself, this is simple, WE can master this!

My First Gain

Thursday, July 24, 2008

So today I had weigh in.....
I gained .2 lbs....
Im not to upset about it though...
Usually I don't eat untill after weigh in but today I was up super early and had lunch and 2 bottles of water....So i think that might have played a role....and even if i have really gained .2 lbs its ok....Im not going to lose everyweek....but Im not giving up either.
I know I had a hard week...I know I didnt really exercise...
I know I ate a bit too much....
This is a new week and as soon as this moving buisness is done with and we are all settled I'm sure Ill be back on track ;-)

    I'm sure having something to eat and drink the afternoon before weigh in does have something to do with it. It's good that you are not beating yourself over the gain also. When we have other things going on, looking after ourselves takes a back seat, you'll soon be back on track. Don't give up.

I have been soo stressed

Wednesday, July 23, 2008

So this week has been crazy. I found out last Saturday that we had to move out of our apartment by this comming saturday. My mom and my boyfriend has work all week and can't really do much. Needless to say I have been stressed. Plus we wont find out whats wrong with my grandma untill tonight. I have been praying she will be ok and its nothing too serious.

Since I do weight watchers I count points.....well I have a confession to make...I really have not exercised at all this week or counted my points regularly. I have been still eating healthy foods and not turning to junk. Even this tuesday when I needed to eat and there was only McDonalds I got a double hamburger 7 or 8 pts with apple dippers and a diet coke.......now to most that doesnt seem impressive but for me....my old diet would consist of 2 double cheeseburgers and a large fry and mcflury or shake......so to me its a great improvment....(i will admit I did have a McFlury this week though...a small one...I was craving one all week so I had one....

Other that that...today I went to Ruby Tuesdays and I had the mini turkey burgers....I only ate half of each bun and 10 fries and had a salad with some lite italian vinagrette....I was pretty proud....although i was shocked when i saw there was 31 grams of fat in the turkey burgers....but only 517 calories and they where delicious and very filling/satisfying...

I weigh in tommorow and I am terrified so wish me luck....I really hope I havn't gained....and if I have gained I hope I dont gain more than a 1 lb....but hopefully I still lost even if it is only a few tenths of a pound....a loss is a loss right?!?
