Project Beautiful Bombshell: Day 18 Always Remember

Tuesday, April 05, 2011

Well, My status today was about how i had to remind myself that it IS possible for me to reach my weight loss goals.

And, for some of you, this may never be an issue.

But for me, I woke up this morning feeling like all the calories I've counted, all the miles I've run, all the times I've said NO when i wanted to say yes... meant nothing.

Because as far as I am concerned, I am still fat. Yes the dreaded F word. The word that makes me cringe when I THINK others THINK it about me.

I started thinking about how all the people who are meeting me for the first time see me as a big girl. My old friends at least know I was small and in shape at one point. But these new people, they'll never believe I've run TWO marathons, TWO half marathons, and LOTS of other races.

I mean, shoot I barely believe it myself when I see what the scale tells me every single morning.

I don't like to feel like this. I don't like thinking what I'm doing is not working. But, I do realize that at this moment all I can do, is keep doing the right thing. and PRAY my body remembers what it used to be. How it used to feel slipping into my 8's and prancing around like I was on top of the world. No longer caring what others think.

But until then, I'll just strap on my running shoes and keep running until I remember.

    I enjoy reading your blogs. You just have a way of getting it out there and projecting your emotions. We all have days when it feels futile, but they pass. If you just keep doing the things you know you need to do you will reach your goals!
If I had your motivation when I was your age.......wow!
Keep up the good work and keep sharing your thoughts and dreams. You are an inspiration to the rest of us!

    To be honest, when I first saw your page, I thought "sexy woman with a beautiful face, gorgeous hair, and amazing smile." When I saw your workout photo, I thought "motivated, muscular, and young." I never, ever thought the f word. A lot of gals and guys on this site are here to be fit; some people aren't striving to lose weight, so you never really know what a person is up to until you read their page. You look great, but if YOU want to lose weight and it would be healthier, I think you are on the right track. Go you! emoticon

    We all have our moments when we feel down, and you just had one of those today. It is ok, get back up look your self in the mirror and acknowledge that you are a beautiful, bright and accomplished woman. You have a winning smile and from what I see of you from you pic you are not what you see. Throw away the scale start looking and how your clothes are fitting you and thanking (whoever) that you are healthy and about to embark on a remarkable future. You Rock, acknowledge it !!!!

    It never gets completely easy to face ourselves day to day, even when we're confident we can reach the goal, eh? Remember how much good you have done for yourself, and how much you've learned; how far you've come--and all you are going to accomplish! Yours is an exciting future; don't let doubts hold you back!

    Thank you both! Deep down I know I'm doing exactly what I need to do, and hopefully I'll feel awesomely SPARKED tomorrow! LOL today was just one of those days I guess! I will weigh once a wk (well record once a wk. I tend to get on daily) and I'm sure the scale will keep moving because so far I have been progressing pretty well thus far :)

Thank you both for the encouragement!

    I think they will see a wonderful, beautiful lady with a great attitude when they first meet you...you know we are our worst critics so you should never forget all that you have accomplished on this journey...more than what some "skinny" people have I am sure....you had been ROCKING it in all areas of your life so don't take anything away from that!!!!

Love ya!

    May I suggest you only weigh once a week. By weighing everyday, you are focusing too much on the scale. Just stick to your recommended calories and your exercise. If you weigh and measure once a week, then you should see some progress after a while. Of course, you might check your other nutrients besides calories, since you want a balanced diet.

Project Beautiful Bombshell: Day 5 :-) With Pics

Friday, March 25, 2011

Waited till 11:50 to do my workout... but I did 30 mins of boxing/kickboxing and it was awesome!
I've lost my real camera... so this is just a cell phone pic to show me after my Midnight boxing workout. Ready to reach my goal! :-D

Match day 3.17.11
An exciting day!


Night Night. :-)

Oh, just because I just found this picture... This is me at 130-135 in college. I think I looked amazing! And though I was happy at that size I ALWAYS wanted to be 120 or lower. Funny how time changes things. My ultimate goal is 115 BUT if I get to 130 and look and feel how I felt in this pic, I'll be happy. And I may stop there (You know and continue to tone)

    I don't know for my height going to 125lbs my family would be thinking I was sick or something. I mean its good for some people who are 5'6 and models but for me a mommy & grandmommy I think 135-147 would be grand. Its begins with us! I think if you decided to do 118 it would cool. You are beautiful!!

God bless & continued success!

Wk 1: Project Beautiful Bombshell- revisited

Wednesday, March 23, 2011

Hey everyone!

I hope that you have had an amazing winter. I'm ready for spring and also ready to take control of my destiny and reach my goal!!! I'm starting a few spark streaks and looking forward to getting back to the point where I feel confident in my body and well on my way to reaching my goal!

Streak #1 - Not buying fast food - Day 1
Streak #2 - Daily exercise at least 20 mins - Day 3
Streak #3- Recording all of my food - Day 3
Streak #4 - Daily 40s (push ups, crunches, squats)
------------------------------------

These are just starters. When I get them down pat I will require more of myself, til then It's going to be fun having a goal again. :-)
Also, I'm supposed to be doing a Sprint Triathlon in May, but I'm not a strong swimmer so I'm hoping to improve my skill by then.
-any swimming tips?

    Great plan for recommitting! I love that you are using streaks. I need that as well. I have really been struggling to get my act together for a few months now. I need to reflect and come up with a good plan like yours! You can do it!

I would love to do a sprint triatholon. I used to do swim team, but it has been so long. Good luck!

An AMAZING week for me!

Sunday, March 20, 2011

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I have seen the mercy of God this week and have had several things come true that I have been WISHING for for years! I was thrilled to find out that I got a residency on Monday 3/14, and on Thursday I found out where! I am SOOO happy! My dream of becoming a doctor has come true after yearsssssss of putting in the work.

Now, I just need to put in the work to reach my weight loss goals. :) I've reached all the other goals I have set for myself, so it's time to give 100% and reach my weight loss goals!

The goals I want to reach in the next 4 month include:
1. Lose 45 pounds
2. Have balance in life. With residency I'm sure it'll be very time consuming, much like medical school. So I want to balance weight loss with having fun, studying, learning a new city, and getting to know new people.
3. Live more courageously. At least once a day do something I wouldn't normally do. :) Within reason
4. Use yoga and meditation on a regular basis
5. Develop healthy coping mechanisms.
6. Have healthy habits and FIND SOMETHING I LOVE and do it weekly and/or at least monthly.


I will be breaking my goal into small steps and weekly goals. Today, I am going to do make sure I get in my 30 mins (at least) and do some reading.

Have a great day everyone! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

My FIRST weight loss NOTICE!

Friday, February 18, 2011

YAYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!

I got my FIRST weight loss notice/compliment today. hahahaha it was not really a compliment and it came from someone who would not likely notice nor mention if I lost weight. They said "you sick?" I said, "huh", they said" are you sick? you look like you are losing weight..." I smiled and said, nope. not sick.

Weird compliment, sure... but THEY noticed the weight loss and I'll take what I can get!

YAYYYYYYYYYYY people are noticing! hahahhahhah I'm so silly sometimes


oh and on another note.... less than ONE month until I find out where I'm going for residency and 13 weeks until GRADUATION from medical school! YAAAAAAAAAAAYY!
