10 pounds up from those pics I took in 2009 that I was so proud of? Hard to believe. I don't know if I look even NEAR that good again. I guess 10 pounds is a big difference? Didn't necessarily think so on a 5'9" frame.

I am really happy at that weight. The following 15 after that is just fluff. I can live in a 145-lb body. I am currently functioning in a build that I can't relate to. It just doesn't feel right. Like, it's not me. And it reallllly sucks.

My tummy is just a lot more recognizable since last weekend. It is amazing how much my body was grateful to let go of pounds that it wasn't used to. That's why I knew it flew off. I have been FAR from extreme. Very moderate. It will slow down. (Not that I want it to!) Be excited for pics in the morning.

I know I am.

Make it last forever...

This feeling. This feeling that PROGRESS is enough. That I am not there, but it is okay. That the journey is more than pleasurable and exciting.

I am not going to wait to feel happy and complete when I get there. I am treating my body right, and I can see huge changes in my confidence and my tummy already.

I know that praising myself daily will only increase my results and my drive to continue.

This time, it is a lifestyle change. Permanently. Tash is making herself at home.

The cardio 5x a week goal needs to be a minimum of 30 minutes each session. Pleased to report I got my day 1 of Livefit done and 30 min of treadmill jogging accomplished as well.

Feeling great today! Weighed in at 157 this morning. I am not happy in the 150s, but I just couldn't TAKE the 160s at all.

I was hesitant to post these pictures after the cute ones of me in 2009, but you know, I am fierce with reality. That is how S*** gets done!!

Here I am on Saturday, 11.12.11:

In a few weeks, when I feel like I can upload a progress pic, I will show you the backside. It is just TOOOOO bad to stand on its own. :)

On Saturday, I was the most I had ever weighed. It was a big slap in the face. I feel great. Empowered.

Here's the Sitch

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

I got way complicated a couple years ago when I was using this site diligently. There is not necessarily anything wrong with that, but I am wanting to simplify. I don't want losing weight to feel like something that HAS to consume my life.

Because of how much weight I have gained, and how overwhelming it all feels right now, I am going to go back to the basics. That said, here is the plan:

*track cals, weight, and exercise via LoseIt
*follow Jamie Eason's LiveFit program
*cardio 5x/week

That is IT! Now let's make it happen! :) Feeling good. Excited. PUMPED.

    Welcome back! I do see people get TOTALLY sucked into this site. Trying fad things (eating overly clean, spending hours on the site, going vegan, etc). Make the site work for YOU!! After all, YOU are what matters!!

247 Calorie Lunch

Saturday, November 12, 2011


That feels good.

Sliced cucumbers, a small peach, light flatbread with hummus and lettuce! DELISH!

Lunch- DONE

Cals left for the day: a little under 700.

Plans to stay on track? Keep busy until boyfriend gets home. That means showering and prettying myself up. Who wants to eat when they are all made up? :)

In fact, I don't even know if mindless eating is even my problem these days. It is mostly an issue with a sendentary lifestyle (read: office job) and not picking good food choices in general.

Getting over being sick, so took it somewhat easy this morning at the gym. It is just up from here!

Took before pictures. Wow, I used to be skinny. I am now 159.5. Blah.

Welcome back to myself! (: 145 Christmas Day- here I come!

    Wow, I feel a LOT like this today too! And my lunch was only 284 calories. :) I wish I never let myself go above the 150s...you just barely kept it under, but I made it all the way up to 166, yesterday. One day on track and I'm 163.4 today. I'd loooove to see 145 again soon, too!!!
