Oh the stress... how I despise you..

Friday, August 09, 2013

So the past week or so my weight has stayed the same.. no gains, which is good, but it hasn't decreased either which has surprised me because I have lowered my cal/carbs a tad - not too much, but enough to think I would have lost another pound or two but nothing.

They say stress can be a factor when it comes to the scale, and I honestly believe this was the case this past week. Stressed like crazy, but still keeping my head up and not once did I crack and head to the vending machine which is a shocker..has it finally sinked in that no matter what I need to keep control of what I consume and finally stick to a weight loss plan I have set for myself?

Nevertheless, I didn't gain any pounds so thats a good thing. Hence why I haven't posted new photos because they would all have said the same thing.

Grocery shopping tomorrow and switching up a few meals to add some variety and see if I can find or create some new favorite healthy snacks or meals.. its all about keeping myself from becoming bored eating the same stuff over and over again. Plus its like exercise, the more you mix it up the better your results.

Been thinking about lot loans.. needing another job and just life in general. I refuse to just buckle and allow it all to bring me down... its life, and some how I always manage to get by.. but, getting by is no longer acceptable to me... I want so badly to do MUCH better. To be MUCH better off personally as well as financially.... I went back to school and studied to be an editor dammit! lol... in due time, I'm sure that "dream" job will come along, or maybe start my own company and become a success.

Of course, #1 priority is my health and losing this weight. I'm trying to lose 44.5 pounds in 73 days... possible? certainly. The healthy way ... as long as I'm eating right, getting sleep and working out daily. Staying committed to the plan.

I'm hoping to get some new running shoes this weekend... jogging always seems to slim me down.

I truly cannot wait to get to 145 on the scale .. and finally have THAT body where looking in the mirror in a tank top looks amazing on me, and I feel amazing wearing it.

Happy weekend everyone! emoticon

    I know it is hard to keep stress under wraps, but do some deep breathing and remind yourself just how far you've gotten. You can do it!

    Just pace yourself...slow and steady. And, no matter what, do not let others discourage you. emoticon
