Shrinking and shrinking some more....

Sunday, May 04, 2014

I haven't posted in forever. Just thought I'd update my progress. I am officially the incredible shrinking woman :)

This is me at 335lbs about a year ago...

This is me last august/September. I was about 295.

And this is me about 3 weeks ago at 218....same shirt, different jeans. :) I went from a 32 pant size to a 20/22 depending on cut.

16 lbs till onederland!!

Well they say time marches on....and whoever "they" are...well they're right. The last 2 months have been some of the most painful of my entire life. My heart has been shredded. My husband has not only left me....he also has a girlfriend now. How has this become my life?

I have decided to move with my kids across state. I have wanted to live there for so long. I am looking forward to a fresh start and establishing our family there. I have even checked out their planet fitness....I must keep moving forward.

On a positive note....I am so close to being out of the 3s. I have lost 41 lbs so far. Go me!

the good, the bad, and the ugly

Friday, July 12, 2013

It's been a bit since my last post. I am chugging along, even though I have been neglecting the tracker.

On the good....I joined planet fitness. I am actually really enjoying the gym. It's super clean and easy to find machines to use. I sold my elliptical. I just didn't use it at home. Ironically, it's the first thing I use when I get to pf.

Now the bad and ugly. My husband of 16 and 1/2 years has left me. I am devastated. My heart is crushed. I don't even know what to add to that. I am so thankful for the Lord's grace which is carrying me right now. I never realized how badly this would hurt....I thought I knew. I was wrong.

    Oh, my God! This is terrible. I'm so sorry.

You need to turn to yourself to find the courage to deal with the difficult emotional period you are going through and which also lies ahead.

Do not turn to food for comfort. It will be double hard now, but double catastrophic if you do.

No matter how hard it is, this will also pass. And when it does, it will be so much better if you have a new, even more beautiful body than now (cause you really are beautiful now, too)

Best wishes

Weigh in day

Sunday, March 24, 2013

Weigh in day today. Drumroll please......10lbs down. Yeah!! Go me!! Now that's a 2 week loss, so no worries about loosing too fast. It feels good to see a loss on the scale. It feels even better to feel healthier and notice the pants feeling a tiny bit smaller.

    emoticon on your 10 lbs lost. You may want to take your measurements, if you haven't already. This is another great way to see your progress when the scale "is stuck."

Keep doing what you are doing!! emoticon

healthy = good

Thursday, March 21, 2013

I watched a video today with 2 ladies talking about healthier living. They were talking about symptoms of low energy....and I didn't even put together that anxiety, depression, mood swings, etc were on that list. I should have known. When I work out...I feel better. I feel energized, happy. The opposite of stress and anxiety. Just goes to show you that not only is exercise good for the heart and to keep your waistline in's good for your emotional health as well!

I have been working on not only revitalizing my own life this time...but also the life of my family. My kids need healthy does my hubby. My kids also need exercise. So the other day I was doing a cardio bootcamp and my son began criticizing my technique. They were doing 3 squats then a jump. I did 3 squats and then held the squat. I am avoiding stressing my knees. I told him if he thought he could do it better....he was welcome to join me. And guess what....he did. He was huffing and puffing and doing his own version of bootcamp. He is only 6 after all.

My teenage daughter and I tried a zumba video Sunday night....let me tell dancing is not a pretty thing. I am glad this was done in the privacy of my living room instead of out in public. LOL We had a great time laughing at our lack of coordination and some of our original non-flavorful moves. :) Which for you moms and dads out daughter is 15 and we laughed together. Score!

Food wise, I am really proud of how I have been doing. I have really been focusing on eating cleaner and choosing veggies and fruits instead of the carbs I crave. The asian soup I made (posted the recipe 2 days ago) was super yummy and full of veggies. It was even better the next day! I already bought the ingredients to make it again.

So parents out there....what are your favorite healthy meals to serve your family?

    Awesome on the Zumba! I think it's amazing that she will get crazy with you like that...score!

My daughter isn't much for the healthy eating, so I've not got much to share.
