Woo hoo!

Tuesday, January 17, 2012

Hey strangers! I am happy to announce I took the plunge and ordered Jillian Michael's "30 Day Shred" and I am excited to start doing it. I also got a Wii Fit from my sister to try, so we are hooking up that tonight so I can mess around on it tomorrow. Can't wait! I walked like 2.8 miles today, did some other exercises on my floor. Yay! Motivation feels good.

I also purchased Jillian Michael's book, "Winning by Losing..." and I am currently reading that on my Kindle. I'm making turkey burgers on sandwich thins (whole wheat) with some steamed green beans for dinner. I am on it today! I feel GREAT!

  WOO HOO! I feel your excitement! You are on top of it my friend! I LOVE turkey burgers! I put lots of good spices and seasonings in the meat and form the patties and freeze them so I can pull one out and cook when I want one. Great job and Great blog!
Thanks for sharing! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Happy New Year!

Tuesday, January 03, 2012

Well, the holidays are over and I have remained relatively unscathed. I am back on track, and I am really motivated. I have been a lot more positive about diet and weight loss since I lost a few lb. in a week. I gained a pound or two over the holidays (thanks, champagne, wine, evil Christmas cookies made deliciously), but it could have been worse!

I am totally ready to get back on track and return to my healthy habits. I got a bunch of treats (think: Puff'n Corn [this is truly the evil of the evil], candy, cookies [also evil] and whatnot. I gave them all to my 6'3 146 lb. husband. He can use the fat! His cholesterol is 80, the lucky man!

I also have somewhat changed my goal weight. I think that I look and feel great at a higher weight than 115 or so. I am only 5'3, but I think I have significant muscle mass and therefore I don't look great and look skeleton-like at that weight. I am going to be happy with the mid to low 120's. 5 lb. can make a big difference for me, so I feel like I am going to focus on eating healthy and trying to move a bit.

Hope you all had a happy holiday!

    Sounds like you have excellent goals set. And, yeah, the holiday treats... so awesome but so evil! We're realistic enough to realize we're going to eat them. The goal is just to eat them in moderation.

    Happy New Year to you! Mid to low 120s sounds like a really reasonable goal. Best of luck with getting a great start to January, I'm going to try and cut down on treats too. Brownies are just too tempting!

I am doing well on the diet! Today is day 4. I usually blow it by now or on the 4th day. I feel really motivated! I walked 2 and some odd miles yesterday and 1.5 miles today. I am on a roll with exercise and dieting. I am eating healthier than I have in a while and I am feeling positive. I also quit smoking and this is day 3 of that. Have a great day everyone!

    Wow! Way to GO! Keep that up and you will reach your goal! I thought I was too old to lose weight, but I've lost 25 pounds without feeling deprived or unusually hungry! I'm going to the gym 3 days a week and in better shape than I have been in years! Hang in there and it will pay off!

Feeling Great!

Well, I have stayed on the diet. This is day 3, which is a major accomplishment for me. I stepped on the scale today and saw 139, which I haven't seen in weeks, and last I looked with horror it was more like 144! Back on track and feeling good!

The motivation behind my recent diet obsession is that last weekend, someone who came in to the bar in which I work said I was fat, that I needed to lose weight, and that my husband was lying when he said he loves how I look, and he'd rather I was thinner. For someone who already has issues, this really blew my mind. I find myself looking fatter and fatter in the mirror, and disgusted with myself. I thought I looked good before he came in, and since he left I feel sick. I cried at work outside and had to pretend it was fine.

Worse yet, it's a small town bar and everyone somehow now knows what happened. At least most people do. I feel really embarrassed and ashamed of my body.

I stayed on the slim-fast type diet yesterday. I watered down my ranch since we don't have light dressings for salads. I drank two of those things. Unfortunately, a woman bought me two shots of tequila, but I was still around 1,000 calories yesterday. I am pretty motivated, I worked out the two days following that fat attack. Going for a walk in a few minutes. I know it seems extreme for me, but I need a change! My anxiety is worsening. I didn't need some guy to say I was fat and needed to lose weight - someone I had to still WAIT ON! My body dismorphia is acting up, I am seeing myself fatter than I did last week. I am also over my highest weight. Time for an intervention!
