Starting the Month on a Good Note.

Wednesday, August 01, 2012

It's August 1st already! emoticon I weighed in at 149.0 lb. this morning, which is far too high for my liking. That means I have gained 4 lb. back from the 9 lb. I lost! I am recommitting myself to drinking one ViSalus shake per day and eating 2 reasonable meals to increase satiety.

Goals for August:
emoticon Weigh in daily, but officially on Wednesdays (since today is the 1st!)
emoticon Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, a drink a ViSalus shake daily.
emoticon Exercise at least 120 minutes a week. I want to have over 500 monthly fitness minutes, and I was so close for July! I know exercise is a key I am missing to my weight loss equation.
emoticon Get to my mini-goal of losing 10 lb. this month. I know I can do it!

I am totally motivated to kick some butt! I walked this morning on the treadmill for 25 minutes, and I may go for a walk after I get my hair cut this morning. I am cutting off quite a bit of my hair. I am "shedding" my old habits and hopping back on the wagon, starting now!

    You can do it, just stay strong and remember any loss is a loss and puts you that much closer to your overall longterm goals.

One Week Left.

Monday, July 30, 2012

Well, there is about one week left until I leave for the trip. I weighed in today at 148.5 lb. I am not where I want to be, and I did it:

I tried on the dress again.

While it is a lot closer to fitting than it was 7 lb. ago, it is still too damn small. I am going to have to wear a different dress. But, it is ok. I am not going to beat myself up; it was a bit of a lofty goal, I guess, and I am not giving up.

I am moving on from trying to fit into the dress, but I am still using it as a tool to gauge my weight better than the scale. My goal is to be at 145 lb. when I go on my trip, and to not gain any weight during that week. I won't have internet access, though, at least I don't think so. I won't be able to track. It is going to be a true test of all I have learned on SparkPeople.

I have a new goal: to comfortably fit into the dress by October 31st. I want to be down to 125-130 lb. ideally. I am not going to let myself spiral out of control again. I am taking back my power! October 31st is my new goal date. Let's do this thing!

    First of all--Congratulations on your 7 pound loss. Rapid weight loss is typically not lasting weight loss and not healthy for your body. Realistic goals are best. 145 sees to have been a reasonable loss. You will find another event where you will get to rock that dress!

Day 4/20 - Food and Fitness Blog.

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

I ate fairly well yesterday, but no exercise.

I am maintaining 146 for the past few days. I am relieved, since I thought 146 was just water weight loss from my previous gain. So it looks like I really lost the weight!

Anyway, no time to really blog. Just checking in. Today is a new day!

Day 3/20 - Food and Fitness Blog.

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

I binged last night. I let myself get starved between lunch and my dinner break at work, and went wild with hunger. My husband brought an unhealthy food that I couldn't resist to my work "for him," but it was my way of ordering it so he really hoped I would eat some, which I did. My calories were a bit over 2,000. That's all I am going to say about it. Today is a new day! I am about 50% consistent this week in staying in ranges and exercise. I am striving to make it 100%!

On the bright side, I didn't show a gain on the scale from my overeating and I did walk for 20 minutes yesterday.

    shhhhh, i did the same thing last night... my scale DID show a gain but I think due to the mass amounts of sodium/water retention...

let's move on and no more self sabbatoging!!!!

grrrrrrr!!!<
