Week 28/29 - a little over 50 lbs... go me!! go me!!!!

Friday, October 09, 2009



I am still having a hard time with this. Weighing in today at 169 .,....52 lbs gone from my body!!!!!!! I can put on a size 12 easy as a matter of fact I even went as far as to put on a size 10 ... yeah they were tight but I zipped them and everything. I went to Old Navy and caught the 50% off clearance and I got some yoga pants for $4.00 ( and a lot more). I got them in a extra large since that was all they had... big mistake I had to keep pulling them up during my entire workout... It was really funny when I was doing my crunches on the ball...every time I would look down I would see my non matching underwear showing again. I hope they shrink when I wash them. I also ordered a 1x costume online.... well it came today and it is too big... I mean even on the last belt loop it was loose. So maybe I need to accept the fact that I am not the size I used to be. I think this could be a good thing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm just about where you are. It's taken me a little longer though, about a year to lose 60 pounds, but it does feel great. I also had just bought tank tops from Costco in extra large and had to take to back because I only wear a large. emoticon

    Way to go! I think we are in the same boat--I've lost about 50 pounds since my heaviest and 16's now make me look HORRIBLE! I always tend to go towards them when shopping because I still don't believe that 14's or 12's will fit!

Hey--at least it's not the other way around and you think your a size 12 and you're not......NEVER AGAIN. Done!

Keep up your great work!!!

Week 26/27- Working out for half of a year!!!!

Friday, September 25, 2009

I didn't blog last week and I didn't lose anything either. But I did weigh in at 175 today so yeah!!!!

For motivation I joined the Done Girl challenge and I am in a 8 week competition at my gym. I am a little nervous because lately my loss has been reeeaaalllyyy slow. I hope this puts me in full gear to get down to a size 10 in 2 months. I want to be down to 170 at the end of this month at least... I am keeping my fingers crossed. Well considering that it is that time of the month, I started a new strength program, and I have been watching my carb intake at night... I just might pull it off.

  you've done a great job so far, no reason why you can't reach your goal for the month.
good luck!

Week 25 -- UnReCoGnIzAbLe?????????

Sunday, September 13, 2009

Okay last night I went out to a club to celebrate my cousins b-day. I decided to be a risky and wear something I normally wouldn't wear... a strapless shirt and shorts. We met up with some guys I used to work with and hadn't seen since April. I got one of the guys attention and waved. He waved back and proceeded to come over by me.... then he stopped and turned around. I called out his name and he said, "OMG!! I didn't know it was you"... We all laughed because they had looked at me and it never clicked to them that it was me. I didn't think I looked that different but that is the fourth time someone has said that to me.

I missed my goal weight last month...but I am happy with the progress I have made so far. Weighed in at 176 ... hoping to be in the 160's by October.

    Thanks awesome- it's nice to have people notice- sometimes I'm frustrated about not making a target weight, but then people still make comments about how I've lost weight and it picks me up. Keep up the good work!

Week 24 - skinny jeans are baggy... lol

Monday, September 07, 2009

Okay I am running into new problem... my clothes don't fit. They look sloppy. My old "skinny" jeans are sagging and I don't even have to unbutton them to pull them down... my sexy "form fitting" shirts are hanging off of me. My blazers wrap around me. My belts don't have anymore holes. You can see the gap in my bra's through my shirts.
My friend asked me the other day what size capri's I had on.. I told her a 14 .. she said well you need to get some more because they are too big.
I am happy about losing but I have never gotten smaller than what I had in my closet (sizes 18/20 - size 14). I guess I didn't plan for it. Don't worry my fellow diva's I have bought a few pieces here and there but really it is time to go shopping... well maybe once I drop below 165...lol.

I weighed in at 177.. wow 1lb!!! I am not mad because I have been lifting weights to increase my lean muscle mass... So I really didn't expect too much this week for loss.
