Annnnnd I got down to 150!!!
I'm fairly certain in all the time that I've used SP (off and on since my senior year of high school), I've never actually reached one of my goals. I've always just fallen off the wagon or stopped using SP before I got there.
But then again, this is the first time I've broken up my weight loss into more attainable goals, so it seems less daunting.
Anyway, I'm freaking stoked. This means that I really can say I've lost 14 lbs this summer.
My next goal is 135 by September 1, which is the first day of classes. That will put me at a healthy BMI and I would love to be able to start junior year off at a healthy weight.
I need a reward! I do still need that bathing suit..or a heart rate monitor.. or new makeup..

I definitely just binged. Within half an hour, I ate half a thin crust frozen pizza, a bowl of raisin bran, and two bites of apple pie...this being after I passed my high range of calories for today. I knew what I was doing was wrong but I still did it, and I don't know why. Well, no, I mean it makes sense. I only ate like, maybe 500-600 calories yesterday because of my crazy work schedule. I guess this was just me tryin to catch up or something.
I feel so nasty, but I can't let it get to me, right? I'm still going to run tonight.
I haven't weighed myself in like foreverrrr so I don't know how well or how poorly I'm doing. Blehhhh. But since it's a lifestyle - NOT a diet - I just keep going.

So today, I get to go to a 4th of July party at my friends house. They got married on May 31 and I started my weight loss on May 26. I've lost 14 lbs since I've last seen them.. which is just so cool to me.
I was bad on my birthday and split an order of onion straws and a bowl of ice cream with my family when we went out for dinner. I also had a steak and onion salad (SO GOOD..and pretty decently healthy, too!) and a cup of Maryland Crab soup..my favorite.
And then when I got home, even though I felt fat and gross and disgusting, I did my C25k run and lifted weights -- of course, like always, I felt fabulous after
And now, on this day where America one-ups me and hamburgers, hotdogs, and alcohol abound, I'm going to be good. I'll eat some, but not too much -- and I WILL finish my last C25k workout for this week.
I'm keeping on and it feels great

I cannot STAND tiny little skinny girls who complain to me about being fat. It is SO passive-aggressive mean, you know? My roommate from freshman year is 100 lbs and she brings it up all. the. time. How fat she is, how much she eats, how she never works out, etc. She just took 2 facebook quizzes about her weight and one said she should lose 5 lbs, so she's "freaking out" because "even facebook thinks I'm fat!"
and how dare she say I have a great body and I don't need to change a thing. Ugh. So ridiculous and inconsiderate and mean.
But I totally used to be that girl. I just loved hearing "Are you crazy? You're so skinny!" ... and I can't wait to hear it again.

Today was the Thursday after publication.. Since my paper is bi-weekly, that means it's a chill day. There's nothing we ever really HAVE to do, so I got a chance to relax a little.
So of course, myself and another intern were chatting with a couple of the vendors who were hanging out in the office and SOMEHOW, I have no idea, the topic of weight came up.
Reggie estimated that I was 175 lbs. Normally that would devastate me, but it was hilarious. He kept trying to talk himself out of it and no matter how hard we tried, we couldn't convince him that 1705lbs looks different on a 5'2" female than it does on a 6" male, like himself. He didn't seem to understand that there's NO WAY I could be 175
He kept trying to say all this nice stuff and it was just priceless. When he said 175, Frank, this homeless, Irish guy who's like, my height, yelled "Are you feckin' serious dude? I wouldn't even guess 140!"
So...haha that was nice too, Frank guessing 12 lbs lower than I am.
Anyway, I've spent all week in DC and I'm going in again tomorrow. At least it'll be Friday. But I have blisters on my feet and I NEED to exercise. I just don't want to. Whenever I go awhile without working out I always fall into this trap of just not picking it back up.
And I can't do that this time.
I'm looking better, but I'm not there yet.
