Trip Booked.....Stress time

Monday, February 27, 2012

So my annual south trip is booked, this year I am going with my best friend, and she's tiny, and I am not. So I am a bit stressed about it
While I have lost 40 lbs in two years and I am proud of how far I've come, I still don't feel comfortable without a bikini bottom swimskirt. It's embarassing but the alternative just doesn't look good
I am small through the midsection and big through the thighs and hips
I do lots of cardio and it just doesn't seem enough
I'd rather see my thighs go down inches then to lose lbs on the scale
So now I will stress until vacation time


Gross Guilty Feeling

Friday, February 03, 2012

As I lay here in bed, after what was going to be a great day calorie wise, I feel like kicking myself for rumaging through the cupbboards for SUGAR! I binge before bed and it's awful. When I was at my heaviest I did this frequently and it stopped for a long time, and now for some reason it's back and worse than ever. I can't just stop at a little bit, I go all out. I am not talking EXTREME binge eating but enough that it puts me over my calorie range and stores as fat since I am going to bed and not burning it. It just makes me feel sick, physically and mentally to know I am only hurting myself. I have started portioning things, so atleast if I come upstairs to stuff my face I will know it's a serving and I know how many calories in that serving, so I am hoping that small step will make me re think. I find if you just grab handfuls you can convince yourself that "oh it wasn't that much" or "oh that's just half a serving" or "not enough to count" oh boy are those thoughts WRONG. It all adds up and it only ends up hindering me. My only saving grace is knowing I probably didn't go over my "maintance" calorie zone, I am not in maintance stage right now however I know if I don't want to gain where I need to stay. That thought somewhat makes me feel better until I realize the crazy amount of fats and sugars I just consumed. Well that is my rant for tonight, it happend it's over I got it out of my system by telling you all, and now I just need to move forward and know tomorrow is going to be a better day!

    I have been in those shoes so many times....In 2004 I was nearly 300lbs, I went on the Atkins diet and lost 100lbs. I have been able to keep my weight off.

I was so addicted to sugar and carbs, they seem to be a vicious cycle, sweet then salty, sweet then salty, it was not unusual for me to eat a huge dinner, get the dishes done then eat chips and then cookies, I was not hungry just craving it....

I had to give those things up, I do have to say that chips are and probably will always be a downfall for me.

Being able to talk about it in a forum like this makes it easier for me to stay on track....

Good luck to you on your journey.

Trying to Motivate Myself Again

Wednesday, January 04, 2012

So it's been awhile. I haven't been controlling my portions or watching what I eat as closely as I'd like to for a few months now, and the inevitable has occured. I have gained 10 lbs. But I think I am ready to get back at it. Lose some weight and work at maintaining it.
The annual spring trip down south is coming up and it motivates me every year to shred a few pounds. I just need some help getting motivated.........


Shred Results

Thursday, March 24, 2011

When I started the shred:
Belly 32.5
Thigh 25
Calf 15.5
Arm 12
Hips 41
Bust 35

Shred Completed:
Belly 30.5
thigh 23.5
Arm 12
Hips 38.5
Bust 33.5

Results are great, although I did the shred on top of some intense cardio!
Glad it's over

Good luck to you all!

    great job! I just bought it and hope you have results like you did! What kind of cardio have you been doing? I'm training for a half marathon so I run 4 days per week (usually 3mi-4 mi.-5 mi.- and 1 long run, like 10 miles this weekend) and haven't seen ANY weight changes since starting. I'm hoping this- especially with toning up- will help.

    I only completed 27 days. I feel kind of guilty about that but I have a trip on Monday and my legs have been bothering me and I need to rest up before the trip.

Gonna have to face it, I'm addicted to gum....

Monday, March 21, 2011

Ummm I have a problem. I am addicted to Bubblegum flavored gum. Is this going to be a problem? There aren't hardly any calories to a stick of gum, but if I chew 10 pieces or more a day is that damaging my dental health in anyway. Oh god. How I love GUM :) If one piece's flavor would just last all day I wouldn't have to eat so many haha
