five 10lb bags of potatoes

Monday, September 21, 2009

I am really excited as of this morning I have .6 lbs to lose until I have officially lost 50 lbs. I can't believe I am so close . I hope I hit the mark tomorrow, I really stepped up my cardio today and stuck to my nutrition plan. To celebrate, if I hit the mark I'm going to walk into the grocery store and pick up 5 10lb bags of potatoes and remember what it felt like for just a second to be 50 lbs. heavier .then I get to put them down knowing they are no longer a part of me - ever again. I have never worked so hard at anything in my entire life.

This is so much more then weight loss. for so long I medicated myself with food. you know what? since I began this weight loss journey one of the hardest things is to really just feel what your feeling, not cover it with food, I know sometimes I am a little eratic, and not so compliant anymore, because if i'm mad, guess what, ,I'm mad, if i'm sad, I cry, and when I feel happy- I feel really freakin happy now. I feel so alive, I feel strong- I feel.

I want to give a shout out to my hubby, who has put up with all my mood swings and made me feel beautiful even when I didn't think I was. I also want to thank my son Joey for constantly reminding me by saying "Novemeber" when I really needed it. They are my biggest reason for not giving up on myself, I want to be here to bug the crap out of them long into the future. Also my Dad Steve who's suicide made me realize how very much I want to fully live my life. Miss you Dad , hope I 'm making you proud.

Don't know how to see myself.

Saturday, September 19, 2009

Yesterday I went window shopping and for the first time in a long time I had to shop in the juniors section(i'm 5'2"), I didn't know what size I was or where to find stuff, I am so used to the plus size stuff. I tried on some size 14 jeans and could actually button and zip them. But they rode kinda low and it felt weird to be in them. My mind kept screaming " take them off and find the mom jeans". I'm 34 I have been plus size since I was about 28 and I am having a hard time dressing my new body. I still see my self as the size 24 I used to be. I guess it will take a little while to adjust. Also ,my hubby hugged me today and completely picked me up off the ground, it has been so long since he was able to do that ( I loved it). SO i'm having a bit of an identity crisis
The mirror doesn't match my head- my head is gonna have to catch up.

    YAY you! I've held off wirh the shopping for new jeans; but I am with you about how weird the "new" lower rises are. I hope you'll get used to the new you and enjoy every minute of being gorgeous.

    It is strange, huh? It does seem to take awhile for the mind to grasp the new body & how you see yourself & dress it. You have done a great job & should be proud of yourself! Start some "positive pep talk to yourself." it will come with time!

I am just so proud and happy for you! Isn't it the most wonderful feeling in the world? And a little scary too? The emotions can get so overwhelming when you really start to thinking about how far you've come. You are so absolutely fabulous girl!!!! And you are going to rock it at the movies!!!!

    I still wear "mom jeans"--just in a smaller size. I have yet to see ANY WOMAN--fat or super-skinny--who looks good in low-rise. Blech.

You'll find your "style"--and you'll look FABULOUS! WAY TO GO!!! :)

    That must feel strange. What a great dilemma though! You are so close! You are almost there. When I read stuff from people like you that have actually achieved their goals, I feel better. Sometimes I feel so unable to get there. But knowing that you and others like you have done it, I feel like I might be able to achieve what I want.

Good luck and thanks for the inspiration!

Had a good day.

Not much to say, Had a good day. When I saw that Robert Pattinson made the best dressed list in People, I knew it would be a good day. He could make a papersack look good:) Stuck to my plan, had a good workout, it was a good day.

I've finally left the 190's behind!!!

Wednesday, September 16, 2009

Got on the scale this morning and it said 189.2. I spent an entire month in the 190's. And I am so glad to be out of there.

Watched the Biggest Loser last night and have two thoughts on that. First it really reminded me of one of the reasons I'm doing this, to avoid the health problems that come from being obese. Second, they lost like 20 lbs. in one week, started to feel like a slacker. But then i realized that at least I don't have someone screaming in my face while i work out. Overall I found the show pretty motivating- in the past I avoided watching it out of guilt. Weight loss is hard- being fat is even harder!

    I love Biggest Loser for the inspiration but I know that the weight loss is abnormal and statistically more likely to be gained back.

More importantly CONGRATS on leaving the 190's! You are doing great.
