My reward/motivation

Sunday, June 24, 2007

So yesterday I was at the mall to pick up things that I needed. I noticed that Macy's had all these cute sun dresses. Most of them were pretty expensive, so I will be watching for those to be on sale soon! But they also had lots of other dresses on sale. I tried on this cute, silky, red with small white polka-dots. Very sexy and slinky. It is a size 8!!! I've worn some size 8 shorts and pants, but they've either been made really big or they have been tight around the waist. It's been a LONG time since I could fit into a slim fitting dress! It fits just right....but just a couple more pounds will make it fit perfectly...so there you go! And maybe I'll even share a picture ;)

    i love sun dresses! i was at macy's the other day too, looking at the cute dresses. I found some nice ones at target, but my problem is that they are all baby-doll cut, which means my little brother claims i look like i'm "pretending to be pregnant" when I wear them. hmm...not what i was going for.

    So hang it on the wall, and then try it on like once a week until it fits like you want it to, and then you can replace it with another size of something else you want to use as a reward! Way to go! Doesn't it feel great???

Interesting Book

Sunday, June 24, 2007

I started reading this book called The Body Shape Solution to Weight Loss and Wellness. I haven't gotten too far into it but so far it's talking about the two types of women shapes, apple and pear, and how these body shapes have certain illnesses and weight problems associated with them. So far it is pretty right on and I am an apple shape. An apple shape mainly has a large top with more fat around the middle and usually has nice hips and shapely legs. Hey, at least I have something nice to look at! lol And pear shapes have a smaller top and have larger hips and thighs. I haven't gotten to the part about weight loss but I had always heard that apple shapes or those with weight around the middle have more heart associated problems. Sounds like there could be more problems than that. Anyway, as I learn more, I'll share more!

    Read about the pear for me. That's me. I am a pear, and I am small on top with a small waist, but I have a huge booty and big ole thighs. So tell me all about the health problems that go with that.
I want to see if they are right about me.

Weigh in

Thursday, June 21, 2007

Here are the results this week:

Down to 128.2 pounds- almost a pound loss. Lost an inch in my waist, 1.5 inches in my hips, and half an inch in my neck! Woohoo!

    I know that felt good to see those new measurements. That is wonderful! I am hoping to see below the 230s on the scale this week. If this morning is any indication, I don't have much hope for making it, but we will see. My day is coming on Saturday! Cross your fingers and toes!

Good news...

Tuesday, June 19, 2007

But definitely can't back down with my workouts and food. This is the true test for me. My blood results are already back! My bad cholesterol has gone down from 171 to 95 but my good cholesterol has gone down from 49 to 37. I will be calling to get a copy so I can see everything. So now I have three months to continue what I'm doing to see if I can keep it down. If it goes back up, she will want to put me on another medication. Cross your fingers!!

Oh yes, and my blood pressure has gone down the last three times I've been to the doctor in the past two weeks since I've been off the birth control. On Monday it was 98 over 70. I was shocked!

Update

Thursday, June 14, 2007

I had my bloodwork done today, so it would be about a week or so before I know my results. She is willing me to let me stay off the meds if my numbers have gone down. Cross your fingers!

Got a call from the gynecologist and I had abnormal results again so have to go in Monday for a biopsy. Not really too worried about this since I had to do this last year and it was ok. Just one more thing to do.

Weighed in and I'm at 129. Not too much of a loss, but still a loss.

Really hate my job right now. Just wanted to cry the whole way home. Trying really hard to stick with this!

    First of all, congrats on the loss! Yippee! Keep up the good work! Second of all, good luck with the results of your blood work. Let me know how it goes. Lastly, hang in there with the job. As a good friend of mine used to tell me...This too shall pass. It used to be our motto.
Wish me luck for a good weigh in on Saturday. I either need a big number on the scale or some good numbers on the tape. After last week, I need something!
I did eat over my 1200 calories today though. That was a good thing.
