Where I was... where I am

As you can tell from that length of time from the last blog post... I've been busy. Busy filling my face and gaining a shit ton of weight... From October 2011 to April 2012 I gained almost 40 lbs. The picture of the left was taken in April 2012 and I was tipping the scales at almost 290 lbs. Since then I have worked really hard and currently weight 245lbs. This has been a lot of work but its been worth it in the end... and I know that I am far from done... just far more motivated...  :)

My friends at the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans are going to have another challenge starting on the 1st of the year and you can bet that I'm going to be part of it :)

Yep it is a good morning for me :) I stepped on this scale this morning and while still less than impressed by what the numbers said -(- what?!? I wanted to wake up and magically weigh 130lbs-)- I was shocked to see what I did see.... see for yourself:

You will notice that I lost 6 FREAKING POUNDS !!!!! Granted I know that 80% of that is strictly because I ramped up my water intake and started watching what I shovel into my face portions and quality of food.

In addition to that I was able to log 400 exercise minutes this week... I was stoked!!! In addition to that I was able to shave roughly 5 minutes off my time of walking around a local golf course track (twice) when I did it the first day it took me 85 minutes and when I did it the other day it took me 80.... :) Pretty exciting if you ask me :)

Here is to another great week for EVERYONE!!!

SHRINKVIVOR Challenge, Week One


Today starts the latest challenge over at the Sisterhood. I have been blessed with a wonderful team of ladies who will be helping me on this journey and we are known as Tribe ORANGE this works for me since orange is one of my favorite colors. I am struggling with saying out loud just how much I weigh so I'll just put the picture up I took... upside I was glad to see that my picture of my scale includes a date.

 on top of being fat, I am in serious need of a pedicure!!! lol

Here's to an awesome week for everyone!!! I'll post my goals for the week later...

back on the wagon....again

Isn't it 'funny' how we can fall off the weight loss wagon time and time again and it still keeps calling us back?

I for one am grateful that it keeps calling me back, otherwise I'd be REALLY screwed!!!

I've been stepping on the scale for the most recent challenge over at the Sisterhood, but not trying (sorry team mates) and lets face it my life has been CRAZY busy. I started a new job and life was hectic before I started that.... excuses aside.. I need to get back on the wagon for realz.

My weight this week is 254.8lbs which is kind of discouraging, but I know that I've been there before and that I can make the number disappear.

Here are my personal goals for the week:
  • Drink my water
  • Stay on target with my Weight Watchers Points
  • Journal the food that I am eating
  • Start the couch to 5K program and sign up for Run the Hood '11 with Shrinking Jeans
  •  Blog a couple times a week about how I'm doing
Good luck everyone!!!

yep... that's what I said when I stepped on the scale today. How in the heck does a person gain 9.3 pounds in a day!!!! Yep that's right, you read that properly... Yesterday when I stepped on the scale for my other weight loss challenge the scale read 239.5 and I was totally excited since that was 5.9 lbs down from my previous week's weigh... I was so happy to not only say good by to the 250's during this challenge but also the 240's and now to learn today that it was all for nothing...

Honestly though this puts me at a 3.4 lb gain from last week's Shrinking Jeans weigh in, but I am more confused about that 9.3 lbs in a day... I am hoping that maybe it has something to do with weighing at a different time, after 2 meals (breakfast and lunch) and consuming 70+ ozs of water for the day... but still I was feeling so good about this.

Even though this is the last weigh in for this current challenge at the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans, I am hoping to continue on with this journey... and even more I am hoping that my dear friend Mae will continue on the journey with me as well...

Here are my goals for this coming week:
Walk outside at least 3 times -- weather is getting nice again
Follow my diet ... NO CHEATING
Journal all my food eating
Drink my water
Take time for me.

Happy Shrinking Everyone!!!

This week has gone really well for me and it showed on the scale... I am down again! I am starting to feel like I actually have gotten a handle on this whole weight loss thing and I hope to continue on with this trend.

Goals for this week:
Eat more veggies
No snacking
