I need to get back on track but not sure how?

Saturday, June 02, 2012

Losing weight for my sisters wedding failed miserably. It wasn't until AFTER the wedding and seeing how fat I looked in the wedding photos that I realized I needed to do something about it.

Here's a before, I'm on the far left

I hate the photo. Yes, I look pretty but I don't feel pretty. I felt like a beached wale in a blue dress, a dress I was forced to purchase. So I decided to do something about it. I researched diets. A friend told me about the diet she was on and she was losing weight rapidly.

It was the HCG diet. The one where you give yourself shots, not the drops under the tongue. Since I am petrified of needles I decided drops would be better for me. I researched the diet, found a website where I could ask people questions. I got the product and started the diet.

Here is what I look like after having lost 40 lbs.

It was hard at first. I was starving hungry the first 3 days. I went through crazy sugar and caffeine withdrawals. By the 2nd week I felt great. I still cheated once in a while, I even had a relapse at a BBQ but I stuck to the diet. I lost 40 pounds during the very low calorie portion. It's been months since doing the diet and I have not gained even a pound back. The important thing is I stopped eating out, drining soda and coffee, and began eating a clean diet.

But now I'm getting back to my old habits. My job makes it hard to pack a lunch because I'm always driving around town and out in the field. I resort to fast food a lot. Luckily no weight gain. I fell crappy though.

I still need to lose another 50 pounds. I don't want to do another round of HCG. It was too restrictive and now that I work full-time I don't think it's realistic either. I'm just not sure how to do this. I don't know where to start. I feel like I have to start completely over since I'm eating out again and drinking starbucks like I'm back in college. Plus I haven't been working out and I am low energy.

I did start taking the stairs at work when I can. Going up them is so dang hard but I force myself to do it at least once a day. I want to be able to wear a pair of shorts and feel comfortable. Fitting into a swimsuit and looking somewhat decent would be nice to...


Bridesmaid in 4 months

Thursday, February 10, 2011

Oh boy. My sis was engaged a few days ago, and they have already set the date for June 16th. The facility is bought, and paid for so I know the date in definite. This leaves me a tiny bit more than 4 month to prepare. My goal is simple. To lose as much as possible by June, and do it healthy. I'm banking on the first two months being my best weight loss months. This may be wishful thinking but I'm going to do everthing in my power to make these numbers happen! It will take a lot of work. My eating habits are still not the best.

Feb/March 20lbs
Mar/April 20 lbs
April/May 15 lbs
May/June 10 lbs

Weight loss has been a slow and painful journey. Havenít been working out and just stopped caring for a while. Luckily havenít gained any weight, just staying the same. But I havenít been motivated. I need and want to lose weight though. So here I am again. They say 3rd time is a charm so maybe this is my moment.


May Update

Thursday, June 03, 2010

My gosh May went horribly wrong in so many ways. First, personal training was a bust. While I enjoyed doing it I was not seeing the results I need, which is my fault for sure, but I couldn't afford to keep paying if I wasn't going to suck it up and do what I was told!

Secondly, I had my commencement for the university I attend, and I just did not look good in the pictures. I felt fat, and I looked fat. For such a happy time I am disapointed in myself for allowing myself to fail at my weightloss goal. I was supposed to lose 40 lbs by May, and then I lowered it to 15, and then I didn't even complete that goal! I feel like a failure...

Thirdly, I bought the bodybugg a few months back and have been doing really well with it until May. It just seems that I got in this place where I was done being healthy, and I was done wearing the bugg or being active. I sulked most of May.

So anyways I am not sure how to get back on track. I have been emplementing healthier eating for many months now, and have been doing "ok" with it although I am still eating out A LOT! My big problem right now is physical activity. I need ideas as to how to get more active and keep active.

    Getting back on track seems more difficult than getting there the first time! My advice is to pick one thing to do - and then do it for a couple of weeks. It could be tracking your food or walking daily or doing some kind of strength training. As you go, you'll find yourself trying to do more; that's OK, but don't stress over anything but the one thing you've committed to doing. Later, add another thing, and so on until you're once again doing it all and being responsible to yourself for all of it.

Even then, it's hard to do, and you have to be self-motivating to make it work. Once you're back on track, you'll feel better about your progress. Now that you don't have classes (or do you?), you may want to join us at our Tuesday morning Mall Walks.

I've had all 3 sessions and opted to purchase more. I like having a trainer show me how to do the things I need to do properly. For example, the weights. I was not doing them right before. Your form really matters. You feel it more when you have correct form.

Bike riding has been going well. It is getting warmer here, and I can finally get out there and ride. It is nice to be able to do that. Really nice! One thing though. I keep catching my jeans in the chain and it rips them. It even cut a big gash in my leg the other day. I guess I need to buy tight workout pants to do my work outs>?

    Yup! That would be helpful. Or jeans that are tighter to your leg.
