Booked my consultation for LASIK! on June 23, 2011. Which means the surgery will probably be soon after that. OMGs so excited but nervous. I'm finally doing this! I probably won't have enough saved up.. My SO is matching my amount that I save. So whatever I save I'll have double of. How nice! But still will only end up with $1,400.00 ... but we can finance so I can probably just give them that and finance the rest. No worries.
Okay! about my healthy lifestyle! I lost track a bit yesterday, was the only day I didn't work out. I was tired, I stayed within my calorie range so it shouldn't be too bad. I will double it tonight! I can do this, think positive.
Up-To Birthday Goals
I want to fit into a size 10 by my birthday which is mid-September (I am currently 14 but a loose 14)
I want to not have to wear glasses any more!
I want to have 1 thousand paid off to my dad!
I want to learn 5 new recipes!
I want to be around 200 pounds!
I can do this! 3 sizes to go, over 2 months to do it, 20 pounds to lose. Bring on the challenge because I'm not intimidated!
This is pretty much just an appreciation blog, telling all of you that have left me comments, posted on my wall, given me suggestions in the forums ... how much I appreciate all the help, support and positive attitudes. I wouldn't be able to do this if I didn't have you guys there pushing me to success.
I gained a pound, I've been eating a bit of sugar each day because I bought a pack of candy when I went to the movies last week and eat a few everyday and I feel like I've been gaining weight because of it... I'm still working out everyday.. another frustrating day it seems like. I just want to get out of the obese category and hit overweight.. I'm 1.48 BMI over. I think I have to up my exercise! 1 hour tonight, mostly jogging and lifting weights to get rid of my stupid arm flab. Ew.
I get it all the time, almost every week really.

I could get contacts but I find them ridiculously uncomfortable to wear.
I have already begun saving for Lasik. I get paid weekly so out of two pays I have put $182 a side for the procedure... I'm not sure how much it is but I estimated at approximately $1,500.00 even though they say could be as low as $490 an eye, I don't see that being realistic and I think it only applies to those with almost perfect vision to begin with and boy am I far from having perfect vision!
I think the $1,500.00 can be easily achieved by Mid-September near my birthday. So that will be a nice gift for myself :) I wish it was sooner because my glasses are already broken but I guess I will have to live with gluing the middle together.
and now to continue another week of healthy eating and moderate exercise! Hope everyone has a great week!
Down to 222 pounds from 233. Which is quite an achievement! Only 12 more pounds this month to reach my goal. But I will be happy with losing 8 no problem.
I will be taking my progress picture soon to see if anything has changed. Last week I managed to get 1470 calories burned by exercise. This week I will try to aim for 1500. Even though my original goal was 1200. I've already shown myself I can pass that :)
People have been apparently noticing! This is great, I feel so good. I can't wait to be under 200 pounds. :D
