Third Time's a Charm???

Sunday, January 13, 2013

In 2008 I had been 188 (my heaviest EVER, which is sad when I grew up skinny till I was about 22). I got down to 160 (losing 28 lbs). I gained 18 of that back (over 2-3 years) and was then 178. In January 2012, I began my journey again, and through July 2012 I had lost 24 lbs becoming 154. I then had issues going on, and gained 14lbs back from July to January 2013.

I was thinking...wow 28 lbs, then 24 lbs, what's next...20 lbs this time and weighing 148? BUT, I don't want that, I want MORE, and I want to stick with it this time. Hopefully 3rd time is a charm in my case!!! Does anyone want to be my partner on this new journey?!

WISH ME LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I can try to be encouraging! You can come to a halt as often as you like, but the key is not stopping alltogether. I know everyone uses the cliche "It's a journey", but it's a common saying for a reason! It's HARD and you need to take rests sometimes and become reinvigorated.

    Awesome! I need to begin counting calories again and getting active. I gained just from not counting. I never hardly exercise, but I want to do both again to kick it! I have about 20lbs to lose!! Let's do this :)

    I'm in! I'd love to lose about the same by November (I'm going to a ball in DC) & then keep it off so I can look fantastic for my Bday in Dec & of course New Years Eve! What's your plan?

SOMEONE....ANYONE!!!

Tuesday, June 12, 2012

HELP! I feel I am on that wagon...wobbling...about to fall! I have not really gained much, maybe a 1lb or so, but I have not lost in weeks bc I am not being strict. I am bad at eating in summer, not winter like most. I need to get back on the wagon and in a seatbelt!!! LOL... lame, but seriously. HELP. Someone hold me accountable!!!

If I was doing what I have been doing for the past few months, I would now be about 145-147 right now, but instead I am like 156-157.

I leave for Florida in 6.5 weeks. I guess the most I could lose by then is about 10, give or take. I need to do it. I also want to tone and slap some darn tanning lotion on (don't want skin cancer) to hide the flaws too that the 10lb loss won't do.

I'VE GOT THIS.....just need some encouragement! emoticon

    Thanks. Yeah as long as I see some sort of results in stuff of going up or staying the same. I want a somewhat flat tummy before I get to FL!

    Ok, deep breath. I am kind of in the same boat, no loss in weeks, but no real gain either. Instead of convincing yourself that you need to lose 10 lbs by your trip, how about going back to 1 lb a week? It'll still be 5+ lbs, you'll feel great, and you'll definitely look great. No stress, but maybe some urgency? Whatever happens, do NOT fall off the wagon! Tracking is key!!!

Stressed....ready for a laid back schedule

Monday, April 23, 2012

I am so ready to just relax and spend my free time on working out and doing whatever I want. I graduate in less than two weeks! Finally...30 (but wish I was 25 LOL) and getting my Bachelor's! I chose to work for a few years before heading back to school. Once my school work is complete, that will feel like a huge accomplishment, but also RELIEF. Then....my current job....I am looking so hard for another job, and just hoping someone calls, but nothing!!! He never gives me a schedule and I have so much to do this week for school and would like to fit in a workout or two, but never know when I am working.

So ready to graduate and have a new job so I can be at peace, and use my time to workout and shed these 19 lbs I still have to go!

HATE my job

Sunday, April 15, 2012

My boss is such a jerk and cannot wait to quit (I never know my schedule or if I even work the next day until the day before--like 12 hours before! He micromanages, makes us work for 15 mins w out pay to open up before clients come--which is WORK, even though I have still written the prep time, which I am sure he will talk to me about this week). Also, the other day (he never let me have a set of keys) so the only set of keys--the girl I work with owns, besides his, I accidentally locked in the building bc I forgot to grab them and the doors are turn locks, so I just turned them and shut the doors behind me, then went oops...He told the girl to tell me I had to pay for the $125 locksmith. This would not have happened if he gave me a set of keys that I could keep on my keychain and it was a workplace mistake, not like I did it on purpose....

I want a new job so bad, but no other job is calling me emoticon......I had an interview for a job I REALLY WANT, but I just feel like for some reason I will not be offered the position.

I have been putting in a lot more resumes over the weekend, so I am hoping for some good news this week. I am very bummed out about this and want to leave so bad...... WISH ME LUCK!!!

    I feel your pain! Both with hating your work environment and the stress of putting resume after resume out there and not hearing anything back. Keep the faith... you'll find something that you love!

    Hang in there I am sure there will be other job opportunities that will come your way soon. It is hard to go to work when you hate your job. I wish you luck on finding a new job that you like.

    Everything happens for a reason... It will all work out! I know it's hard to believe that some days, but that's why you have other people to reassure you and tell you that it will when you're feeling low. :)
