What’s Up With MissB8604? – Weeks 174 & 175

Friday, July 25, 2014

Nutrition: Not good, but not because of depression. I've been eating what I want and haven't been paying attention to my portions. I've relaxed a bit too much and need to reel it in quite a bit. My veggie intake has been terrible as well, so that's something I'll definitely be focusing on in the next few weeks. While I normally don't drink a lot, the last month or so I've had quite a few cocktails and I can feel it. It has been fun, but I cannot make alcohol consumption a weekly thing as it has been. My liver would definitely appreciate it I'm sure.

Water Intake: Excellent.

Exercise: Dancing rehearsals. Once my show opens I'll be able to go back to my Zumba and Musical Theatre dance classes.

Show Biz News:
We open in 8 days and I can't even begin to describe how excited I am! Every time we do a run of the show, all of our characters grown in diversity which is so fun to watch. All this week the cast has had a theme for the day, which means we dress up according to said theme. I'm having a blast and the cast has bonded so beautifully.

Our "Pick an Era" theme (I was a 1940s secretary, this is a good chunk of our cast but not everyone):

Original Starting Weight (2011): 285lbs
New Starting Weight (2014): 250lbs
Week 169 Weight: 246.5
Week 170 Weight: 245.0
Week 171 Weight: 243.0
Week 172 Weight: 242.0
Week 173 Weight: 244.0
Week 174 Weight: TOM
Week 175 Weight: 247.5

Final Comments:
I'm almost back up to my 2014 starting weight which isn't good, but I know why and can nip it in the bud so that it doesn't get any higher. I have no doubt that I can do this and that I'll be successful. I'm emotionally in a better place, and the last few days have been very happy. All in all, I feel blessed and am grateful that my depression isn't taking over my life. *knocks on wood*

Happy Friday SparkBuddies, love you all. I haven't been on much because I haven't been focusing on weight loss and because rehearsals get out SO late (usually around 11:30pm or later).

Romans 8: 7 "I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us."

Mark 5:36 "Don't be afraid, just believe."

Sending you massive hugs of support, and holding up a giant sign for you (from my sofa), that says, 'You can crush it today!'

    those rehearsals can be brutal!! Great job, tom always messes with my weight so don't be too stressed about a fluctuation. Alcohol always gets me in the summer too!

    We've all been there. I'm dealing with gaining most of what I lost last year back myself. We can do this! :)

    Just this last week I have found out my mood controls my weight. If I am in a bad mood I tend to gain, but if I stay in a happy mood I tend to lose, so I plan on staying a happy gal., So let be HAPPY together. Laugh when you can even if you are alone.

    I find it helps me tremendously to have oodles of quick & easy fresh veggie choices around carrots, red bell pepper strips are my favs as they are sweet and satisfy my sweet tooth.

Keep the SPARK! :-)
