Week 4 Reflection
So...this is a blog entry, which is really like a diary entry. So we have to be honest, right? It's time that I'm honest with myself.
I haven't been doing well so far in this challenge. My goal at the beginning was to lose 30 pounds, and he... Read more
I did something this week that I've never done before--Kayaking!
I'm not gonna lie, I was a little bit nervous. I've been white water rafting but it was years ago when I was in a lot better shape. And kayaking is a lot different because you... Read more
I have a little problem...
Okay, it's kind of a big problem...
I always get hungry late at night! Actually, I don't really get HUNGRY as much as I just get the munchies and cravings. I always want to eat at night! I can go most of the day without eating (although I d... Read more
BLC 14 Goals!
It’s the last day of Week One of BLC#14 and I’m just now blogging about my goals. Maybe it would have helped to do this earlier in the week, but I guess better late than never.
My number one goal is to STOP PUTTING IT OFF UNTIL TOMORROW!! ... Read more
Update....No more HCG.
Several weeks ago, I posted about starting about with my weight loss and doing the HCG diet. The ONLY reason I wanted to do it is because I have such a huge amount of weight to lose and I wanted to get a jump start on it. I was worried that it w... Read more
This happens every time...
Every time I try to lose weight, I go really strong for a few weeks and then I start to slack off. I told myself that I wasn't going to do it this time but I did. I was really good for a few weeks, lost about 30 pounds, and started to cheat a li... Read more
UGH. And yay!
Okay, I'm starting this blog entry out with a big UGH! I'm annoyed right now, but I'm sharing because it is probably something that has happened to all of us.
I'm dating a guy right now and today he made the comment, "Lauren, you're really... Read more
End of week two/Super Bowl Food!
I am officially now in week three of my weight loss. I wasn't quite as strict as I was last week, although I still ate very healthy...with one exception.
I knew that the Super Bowl was coming and I was planning on going to a party...I was ... Read more
Beginning of Week Two!
So, this morning marked the end of week one/beginning of week two and was time for my weigh in. I was a little nervous stepping on the scale because I've worked really hard this week and I was nervous that the scale wouldn't show it-- but it did... Read more
It's been a while since I've written a new blog post, or even been on this website. I'm sad to say that I have NOT stuck with a "diet" at all (although I hate to even call them diets). I'm one of those that kept saying, "I'll start tomorrow." An... Read more
Valentines Day FAIL.
Oh man. I totally blew it yesterday. I was doing okay in the morning and early afternoon because i was running around on campus and staying busy, but when I got to work it went to hell. I walked into the break room when I got there and the table... Read more
Not too happy with myself right now.
I weighed in for the second time at Weight Watchers yesterday. I was shooting for at least 3.4 pounds, which would bring me to 10 pounds. To my disappointment, I didn't lose anything...instead, I gained a little bit. It was barely anything, just... Read more
Yesterday was the beginning of week two, and I'm really happy with my progress so far! As of yesterday morning, I'm down almost 7 pounds. Yay! I was hoping to lose about 5 my first week so I was extremely happy when I saw the scale. It always fe... Read more
My Weight Loss Journey
Week one. 321 pounds, AHH! I knew that I was getting up there but I had no idea it was so high. When I stepped on the scale and saw my true weight, I had to hold back tears. I’m so upset with myself for getting this big. Less than 3 years ago, f... Read more
