Personal Goals for the week of 10/18/10

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

emoticon is what I keep telling myself! It was a disasters weekend for my eating, exercising and emotions and yesterday I was even considering throwing it all down the drain and go get some Mickey D's However, I drug myself out of bed at 5am this morning, forced myself to work out and work out hard! and now my mood has been lifted. I feel a thousand times more positive, I am on track and ready to hit it this week! In three days it will have been exactly one month since I began sprak people and I would like to say that I have lost 20lbs however, I still have 4 more to go emoticon

SO... My goal for this week is to officially say emoticon to those last four pounds (last till I hit 20) and say emoticon to the 170's girlfriend! I have not been in the 170's for about three years, I think I was in my second trimeseter when I rolled into the 170's and eventually landed in the 200 range! emoticon

Anyway not to get off track, I had a brief relapse over the weekend but Im back and ready to rumble! I am planning a hike with the family on Sunday (9 miles baby!) and plan to shy away from any food that does not come from my kitchen.

This weeks goal is to hit 179 and officially land the title of losing 20 pounds! Also I would like to achieve working out for at least 30mins. the rest of the week since I totally ditched on working out last week.

This is my current weight and I am pretty proud of this photo.. I can really notice the weight loss in my face/upper body (sadly the boobs where first to go LOL)

Trying to Get Past the weekend from hell!

Monday, October 18, 2010

So let me first start off by saying... emoticon This weekend was not a good one as far as diet and exercise go! Friday, Saturday and Sunday I ate every meal from a fast food restraunt, drank beer and did not exercise for one minute (unless I can count the dancing I did on Sat. night?)

SO needless to say I am a little bit ticked off at myself for letting it get so out of control, since I started here on spark (It was four weeks on Sat.) I have done incrediablly well, I have always only had one cheat day during the weekend and have never let it get so bad however I have alot of stuff going on within myself that I am struggling with and it is making it hard for me to stay on track.

I have always been an extremly emotional eater. Anytime Im happy, depressed, sad, overwhelmed, I mean any reason to eat is good enough for me. Im so scared that Im going to fall off the wagon again and I just cant step back. I feel so amazing already, I just want the weight off so I can finally feel happy and content just being me but I have so much emotional garbage weighing me down right now I dont know how to hold on. I just keep telling myself that I will be happy when the weights gone but will I?

Egghh I didnt even make it to the gym this AM however I did bring my gym bag to work so that I can skip over there before I head home but who knows if that will actually happen. Why does life always sneak up on you with gigantic stress when your just starting to feel good.
emoticon I really am going to try and flip this week around and hopefully when I weigh in on Sat. I will be pleaseantly surprised rather than sad, sad, sad,

Thanks for listening!

    The same thing happened to me a couple of weeks ago (I can't say no to free food and free booze, what can I say?). But it only took me a couple of days to get back in the swing of things and to stop being annoyed with myself. I hope you made it to the gym after work! You can do this!!

Today my BMI is no longer OBESE!!!

Thursday, October 14, 2010

emoticon Today is already a great day! I feel so empowered, so excited, so over joyed!! First I weighed myself this morning when I got up because I worked my ASS off (literally) at the gym yesterday morning and did awesome on my calories yesterday and It all paid off... the scale said 183!!

Once I got to work, I plugged in my new weight on the goal page like spark has suggested to do once you lose 10-15 lbs in order for the calorie needs to readjust and there it was! I am officially out of the Obese BMI category and into the just overweight! I can almost cry right now, for one I did not realize I was Obese but now I am no longer in that category!!!

I have officially lost 16lbs in just under 4 weeks! It has been long, hard and extremely challenging but I feel so much stronger and sexier already!!! I cant wait for the next four weeks and what it will bring to me :)

Thank you to Spark people and to all the amazing spark friends I have found through teams and message boards! You have helped me to stay on track and now I can with out a doubt say that this time is different! I will succeed! For once I don't feel like I am just going to have to settle and deal with being Fat. No I don't!!! emoticon emoticon

This Morning I looked in the mirror...

Friday, October 08, 2010

And for the first time in about three years I DIDNT WANT TO CRY!! emoticon I feel amazing inside and am finally starting to see the results outside! I have a long way to go still on this journey but already I am seeing and feeling the results of my new lifestyle and I am beyond happy with myself. Finally I am doing something for me and it feels so great!

When I was getting ready for work this AM I actually stood in front of my vanity mirror in nothing! AHH.. it feel good and I didnt want to cry. I wasnt grossed out with myself.

Today, I am wearing a size 13 jeans that I bought last year (and had massive muffin top) and today I have no muffin top! They fit nicely on my thighs and when I sit down I dont feel like Im going to pass out because they are to tight! I still have some ways to go untill I can wear a form fitting shirt with them but they are 100% fitting better already! The shirt I am wearing was given to me by my mom and three weeks ago I could not zip it up and the arm bands where so tight that when I went to take it off it would get stuck on my arms and leave a mark! NOT TODAY!!!

I can not wait to get to my goal but I am having so much fun and enjoying getting to that point. I feel so great already I can not wait to see how I will feel in Three months from now. This time is differnt! I can do this! There is no room or option to fail only to succede!

emoticon I will survive and come out of this a better, healthier, happier, more complete person!


Starting To See/Hear Results!!

Thursday, October 07, 2010

Finally!! I have been on this journey for just over three weeks now (phew cant believe how time flies) and I was starting to get my typical.. "fatigue" ... That's a good word for it, yes my typical fatigue with working out, eating so healthy and starting to feel like the weight should fall off faster despite everything in my mind telling myself that I didnt get fat in three weeks so i cant expect to be skinny, you know those times when your motivation and strength start to wean..
Anyway that was where I was last night, but than I decided instead of feeling down on myself I should go to the gym :) So as I was walking out to my car my apartment manager was walking in and I stopped and was talking to him and the whole time he was looking at my kind of weird and than I hear it! The magic words that turn my frown upside down and makes me want to scream out loud LOL he said "Man Bri you are getting skinny!".. Ah (Screaming and jumping up!!) Finally someone noticed besides me! He said "you can really tell in your face and arms, have you been on a diet or something?" I said well yeah and I've been busting my booty at the gym :)

So that was my first happy positive, I know I can stay on course and succeed this time thing that happened to me! The next was this morning when I was getting ready for work, My size 14 black slacks went on right over my legs (actually they are pretty baggie at this point emoticon) they slid right over my butt onto my hips and the best part was.. THEY WHERE NoT EVEN UNBUTTONED OR UNZIPPED!! emoticon That's right people I can officially put on and take off a size 14 without unbuttoning or unzipping!

I cant wait until they are to big all together but this is an amazing start! YAY ME emoticon
