Had a great Friday the 13th!!

Saturday, July 14, 2012

I had my yearly appointment with my doctor and she had not seen me since I was 213 pounds!! Normally I hate going to the doctor but I was so excited to show off my 90 pound weight loss!

She was very proud of me and told me I'm at a good weight now, but I still want to get back to where I was....only 8 pounds to go! Though these last few are taking their sweet time. Ugh!

After the doctor, my fiance and I ran a bunch of errands and bought a gas grill. I've been wanting a grill for so long. I'm really excited to have one!! On Sunday we are going to grill out and do corn on the cob, asparagus, yukon gold potatoes and Boca burgers!

Once we got back home we went for an hour long walk with the dogs. The weather cooled off so it was more enjoyable than the past few days.

For my workout, I did 62 minutes of cardio and weight intervals.

The other exciting thing that happened is that my friend's water broke! She's 10 days past her due date, so we were all anxiously waiting for something to happen. She still hasn't gone into labor yet (well at least by about 10pm Friday evening), but hopefully tomorrow my new little "niece" will be here!

*3 pounds to first goal
*8 pounds to ultimate goal

Hope you all have a great weekend!!!

Wedding Update!!

Wednesday, June 20, 2012

Since the weight is almost all the way off, and I'm in a better place, physically and emotionally, we've started the wedding planning. Finally!! Unfortunately he proposed right when I got sick and things just kept getting worse. He has been so amazing to stick by me through everything!

We've set our date - May 25, 2013!! We've booked our venue, photographer, planner, and photo booth. We met with a videographer tonight and will be meeting with another soon. And we started contacting caterers - now that's the fun part! ;)

I also got my dress!!! It's so beautiful. I absolutely love it. And the best part is I don't look half bad in it! It's a little big, and will be bigger by next year, but the seamstress should be able to take it in.

I'm having such a blast picking out decorations, colors, etc. IT feels great to finally be able to do this!

Hope you are all working hard and feeling great. Keep up the good work!!

*3.5 pounds to first goal
*8.5 to dream goal

    Congratulations on everything! I can't imagine what it was like to go through what you did -- you are a strong and amazing woman, which probably has something to do with why your man is so crazy about you.

Throwing Out the Fat Clothes

Saturday, June 16, 2012

When I hit 89 pounds lost, I decided it was time to donate the fat clothes I had to buy over the past two years. What a waste of money - gah!

It felt so good to purge those clothes. I'm not sure why I was hanging on to them. But it was time for them to go. I tried on a lot of them to see how far I've come and it was truly astonishing.

Clothes of that size will never, never! be back in this house again.

I'm fitting back into my jeans from 2 years ago. I still don't look as good in them as I did, but I can button them and wear them!!!

I went shopping the other day and bought all XS and S tops and a size 2 pant!! It feels good to be so close to my original size, but it's also a little frustrating because I want to be there so bad. But I'm feeling so much better about myself. I still have days where my self confidence is low and I feel like a fat cow and hate people seeing me eat, etc. But in general, I'm feeling good. I want to hang out with friends again, go and do things, live life!

AND! Because I'm feeling so good and life is getting organized again, we've started planning our wedding - officially! We've set the date, booked the venue and photographer and are busy, busy!

*4 pounds to 1st goal,
*9 pounds to awesome-sauce

Keep up the good work SP friends!!

    That's great!!!

I not only got rid of large sizes, but got rid of pants with elastic waistbands. They're like a safety net. I've put on a few pounds and my pants are tight, which means time to get serious again! No more safety net. emoticon

I need to brag for a minute....

Saturday, May 12, 2012

I'm at 127 pounds, down 86 total. We'll see what tomorrow's weigh in is.

But I am 7-12 pounds from my goal. I'm in single digits!!! I seriously cannot believe I'm here. I'ts been a long road, and so much work. Wow - I'm so proud of myself!

I took some measurements today and my waist is 26 inches and my bust is 34. Only a couple more inches to lose on my waist and I'm back to where I was! I also lost more inches in my thighs and my wrists have gotten a lot smaller. And my face finally looks better.

I'm wearing a size 4 jean, and am close to being in size 2. I'm down to size small in tops.

I just cannot believe it!!!!!!!

I wasn't losing weight so I added in walking to my daily routine. I do at least an hour of fast walking, 7 days a week. Ever since adding that my weight started coming off again. YES!

Thanks for letting me brag about myself. I'm way too hard on myself, and put myself down all the time. So I'm trying really hard to focus on the positive, at how far I've come and how amazing I'm doing!!!

Ugh. My first weight gain.

Wednesday, April 11, 2012

Ugh. Made it through over a year of holidays without gaining any weight, and now from this Easter ....I'm up a pound! I find it hard to believe it would show up so fast, but who knows. In fact, throughout this whole journey, 14 months, I haven't gained any weight. So this is hard for me to accept!

Hopefully it's just water weight. But I did eat quite a bit. Now that I'm closer to goal weight I don't have as much wiggle room. Boo.

I'm pretty discouraged about it. That's two-ish weeks of work right there!!! Stupid treats weren't worth it.

    Don't be discouraged. Your body can go up and down a pound for a lot of reasons, like water weight.

    You're probably right about it being water weight. Even if your calories were on target, standard holiday fare tends to be about as full of sodium as if you had a salt lick on your plate, and we all know what that does. As your own background says, "Keep calm and carry on!"
