Losing weight...for the last time!

Tuesday, March 08, 2011

Well, its been a little over a month on SP and I love it. I like this weight loss method better than any other one I've tried. Which leads me to believe that this is my last and final time losing weight...because I AM going to keep it off. I can no longer blame it on college drinking or getting 'comfy' in a relationship. No more excuses. I mean how much more can I put it off? I want to look not only fabulous this summer but I want to be able to look back and be like "damnnnn, I looked good at 25". emoticon I have soo many reasons to succeed, as well as all the SP support!

10 Reasons Why I Will Lose Weight for the VERY Last Time:

*10* I want to finally get out of the 'obese' BMI category
*9* I want to be able to wear cute clothes and not feel self-conscious
*8* I want to prove to myself I can overcome this weight gain/loss battle
*7* I want to automatically make healthier decisions, knowing how long it took me to lose the weight
*6* I want to have a nice body
*5* I want to start running
*4* I don't want to worry if I will fit into pants/clothes from last season
*3* I want to feel confident
*2* I want to look smokinn' in a bikini this summer (and every summer...)
*1* I want to be secure about myself/weight/appearance! for ME :)

I can do this! I have read so many motivational stories and it makes me believe this is possible. I will have patience and I will keep tracking. Here's to 159! :P

    Good luck girl! It looks like your head is in the right place which is the first step to losing the weight. SP is definitely the best! I never could have lost my weight without it :) emoticon

    My favorite reason is #9. I feel that way too. I think once you realize you CAN really do this and stop telling yourself you CAN' happens.

My head is going to e x p l o d e !!

Wednesday, March 02, 2011

So in the past 4 days I have gotten 3, they're not headaches, they are migraines. They are so painful, like the kind you need to sleep off. I am not doing anything differently ( as far as meds, nutrition, exercise) so I am not sure what may be causing them. Maybe because it is PMS week? I don't know what the case may be, but they need to stop. It is affecting good mood, my gym time :// etc. I seem to get blurred vision when I get them. Nothing helps them. Not even Ibuprofen 800 mgs. W T F ! Not cool. Looking forward to bed, that is for sure.

Hoping tomorrow is a better (migraine free) day.

    Definitely go to the doctor if this continues. Don't come to school tomorrow if it is still bad! It's hard to stay on track when you feel like crap, but you've been doing so awesome! I know you'll continue to be successful and these headaches will go away or the doctor will help you kick them to the curb :)

Before/After Pictures...

Sunday, February 27, 2011

So after viewing some SP pages, I decided that pictures are very motivating. Not only my own "fat" pictures but seeing someone else's before and after motivates me, even if I don't know the person. Having said that, as I try to find my own 'before' pictures, I noticed something.... I must subconsciously know when I am overweight because I seem to not take pictures from the neck down. Therefore, making this a difficult project to find 'before' pictures. I need to face my fear (of what I REALLY look like) and take some so I can begin to see the progress I am making to keep me going! emoticon

    Haha I just read this and it basically mirrors my first blog entry as well! I mostly only took pics from the chest up! It's time to own up to our bodies. And they're going to look fabulous so it'll be a good thing :)

    I am taking my before pics tonight! Yikes! I am also motivated by before and after pictures and love looking at other people's. I know that when I reach my goal I will enjoy looking at mine.
