August Update

Monday, August 08, 2011

I look back when I first began my new "lifestyle" change in March. These WERE my feelings:

I was overweight - BMI was 26.8 5'3" 151 pounds
I felt ugly
I would wear the same clothes over because nothing seemed to fit.
I used food to make me feel good.
I was self conscious, I hated looking at myself.
I would have never thought about wearing a bikini
I drank nothing but soda and ate out everyday
I would overfill my plate and go for seconds
I smoked cigarettes and other stuff...
Had an I DONT CARE attitude and hated everyone

Now, 5 months later
I am Healthy 133 pounds 23.6BMI
I feel beautiful
Clothes I have been holding on to, are now part of my wardrobe and I love making outfits
I only eat food when I am hungry
I am proud with the way I look and I love looking at myself in the mirror
Now, I am walking around my pool in a bikini.
I don't drink soda, Only water and I rarely eat out.
I use portion control and limit myself to only 1 plate and a late snack
I quit smoking cigarettes and the other stuff
I try to use my knowledge and experience to help others with losing weight

Although I am still not at my Ultimate weight loss goal, I look back and I am proud of my accomplishments and I love the way I feel about myself. I made a lifestyle change that I will be living for the rest of my life. Never do I want to feel that way about myself again.

By the way, My birthday is in August....I will be 25 on August 25. I think that is kinda special

    You are wrong Kayleigh. You are not kinda special. You are amazing! You have accomplished so much in just 5 months that makes my goals seem mediocre. You have inspired me to to reassess. Thanks for blogging and hope your birthday is memorable.

Fourth of July Weekend Baby! Whoo

Friday, July 01, 2011

It's fourth of July weekend! Whats everyone's plans? I am going to Six flags in NJ for my boyfriends brother's birthday on Saturday. I am so excited. I have never been to Six flags and I can't wait. I love roller coasters emoticon. My brother's birthday is on July 5, not sure if there is anything planned for him yet. Come to think of it, there are a lot of birthdays in July. Which means I am going to have to pay extra attention to my eating habits and making sure I am making good choices at all these birthday party's. It's going to be hard to resist some birthday cake and ice cream yum.

Well I hope everyone has an amazing 4th of July and be safe!

Keep on tracking, exercise and drinking H2O! ... and it is okay to have some temptations just don't over do it. emoticon

Stupid Plateau

Tuesday, June 28, 2011

I hate plateau. I have been stuck at 138-139 now for 2 weeks. I have tried high and low calorie ranges and increasing my cardio and strength. I have increased my water intake to 3-4 Liters a day and no budge! I have to keep motivated and eventually I know it will break.

    You go girl! You can do it! I know that for some people if the cycle their carbs it can help break a plateau. Cycling carbs (if you didn't already know) is when you eat the most carbs in the morning and decrease them in every meal after and restart again in the morning. I don't remember the science behind it but good luck! Have you tried a new cardio or strength training routine? Maybe some intervals? Good luck breaking this because if you keep going you will see the scale budge!

I totally binged on Chili's chicken fajitas tonight and it was soooo worth it!! It doesn't bother me. One day isn't going to kill me. I finally feel so full but enough that I won't do it again for a while. It was nice to get out and spend some quality time with my boyfriend. I am trying to lose weight and he is trying to gain it, so I took one for the team.


Goodbye Size 8

Friday, June 17, 2011

Getting ready for the day, tried on my usual size 8 jeans, and guess what, they don't fit. They are big and I have to wear a belt. Put on my size 6's and viola, they fit perfect. It's summer time and I don't wear jeans often. I only have two pairs of size 6. It gets expensive to keep up with losing weight, because I know that eventually I will get out of the 6's (i hope) and will have to buy more jeans to fit. But it always feels good to zip it up and put away those 8's.
