Weigh Day - Week 107

Friday, April 05, 2013

**Disclaimer: I refuse to believe that I won't be one of those people that keeps the weight off for life. I WILL do it. I have no doubt I will. There's no way in hell I'm going to be a size 24 again. I can do this. Yes, I'm close to being 200lbs again, and you know what? SO WHAT. I have lost 100lbs regardless of what the scale says today, and I refuse to take that off of my SparkPage. I worked my butt off (literally) for this and I won't give up. If you have ANYTHING negative to say, don't even bother, you won't hurt me and you won't deter me from getting down to 170. I have never truly attempted to lose weight before in my entire life, and honestly, I'd rather have some bumps in the road then lose all of my weight perfectly. This is all part of my story, and this chapter is just a low point.**

On to the goods!

Nutrition = Moderate. I just don't even try to track anymore out of sheer exhaustion and laziness. Measuring, weighing and tracking is exhausting. I know I must do it, but I just don't. This is probably why I'm not back in my maintenance range. If I track, I'll track breafast/lunch/snacks, but as soon as I get home, the LAST thing I want to do is track. I won't give up though.

Water Intake = Excellent.

Exercise = Could be better, as usual. Rehearsals are picking up, so I won't be getting any consistently anyway, but I'll never stop trying to get some in.

1). Was able to put on a skirt of my Mother's that I could even put around my thighs some months ago. It's a size 10. This by NO MEANS is me saying that I'm a size 10, but it was still pretty cool to be able to clasp the ties on the skirt. It didn't look flattering at all because of my dang belly, but still! Pretty cool stuff.
2). I printed out my Huffington post article for my Shrink and she was VERY proud of me! The smile on her face made my day.

    Your progress is mind-blowing any way you look at it! Don't ever feel discouraged; this is probably one of the toughest, most frustrating battles we will ever wage in life. Not only do we live in a world of tempting food choices - many of them with really negative health consequences - but food's not like a controlled substance - we've GOT to eat in life. This makes finding that right balance for a healthy-eating plan all the more challenging. It's a fight, though, that we can win slowly - one day at a time. The changes aren't evident from such a close-up view, but they are absolutely inevitable! So hang in there, sweet Miss B - your ship IS coming in! emoticon

    Is pre-tracking - planning your meals out the day before - an option? Then you're not exhausted & you don't have to even think about it!

    Baby, never forget this is YOUR journey! U dont have to live up to someone else's expectations, someone elses's goals. U only have to satisfy yourself in the end bc thats the ONLY person that truly matters! When u love/like yourself (which I know u do!) it shows on the outside as well, no matter what that stupid scale says! U may be close to 200 but ur ALSO a size 12.....AMAZING! Have u considered that maybe a pound or 2 of that "gain" is muscle?! Its possible.,....
    I love you, sweetie!

    Hey my beautiful friend....you got down near 185 and you will do it again.
    (It was all those fancy parties you've been enjoying...but celebrating is important too).
    Get ready to shine. Go For It.
    Can't wait to hear your progress.
