My body decided to show its female ways these past few days, and I felt bloated and hideous. I knew the scale would show me something I wouldn’t want to see so I avoided it.
Last night though after working my tush off all day, I fell into my bed into immediate slumber.. With the comforting feeling that I was considerably smaller than before.
I started my new Herbalife program on Sunday.
Sunday Weigh-In: 209.4
And when I weighed in this morning, I weighed 206.6!!!!!!
Loss of -2.8 lbs!!!!!! And it hasn’t even been a full week yet!
Lesson learned from this past week: don’t give up because it seems like all of the world is against you. Because if you follow through, you will certainly be rewarded greatly. The universe is a beautiful thing, I tell you. :)))))
I dont even know if i should be doing this one this week..
Last week: ~193
This week: 196.2
I’ve been eating between 800-1000 calories/day this whole past week. I ran like no other the other night too! I was actually really proud of it.. But, its STILL shark week for me and to say that ive been uncomfortable is an understatement. My digestive system is all fucked up at the moment too.. So who knows how much actual weight I’ve lost if any at all for my weight is being shrouded by so many factors at the moment.
I really hope I haven’t hit a plateau though.. Cause I feel like i might have.. Idk.. I’m gonna give it a couple of days & see how things go..
Going to go get my depo shot done today, hopefully that will help with the shark week business, and I plan to sit on my bum and watch Pretty Little Liars and White Collar while i let my tummy rest…
So yesterday I weighed myself & I was 194.8! I thought my scale was lying to me, i got off and on it about 6 times, moved the scale to a more open area on the floor and everything, but 194.8 wouldn’t go away!
Today I weighed myself and I was: 196
I dont think by eating around 900 calories + exercising yesterday made me gain a full 1.2 pounds though..
It’s shark week, in more ways than one for me. I was super bloated last night when I was trying to run also.. so i think that must just be some water weight by body is holding onto.
So I’m going with yesterday’s number! (Especially since i weighed in last week technically on tuesday anyway!)
Last week: 199.2!
This week: 194.8!!!
LOSS: 4.4 pounds
I think I’m going to start doing my weigh-ins on tuesday from now on.. it seems to work out better for me that way anyway..
For the past 2 days I’ve been away from a scale while being at work. But i packed myself 2 egg salad breakfast sandwiches, a big ass salad that i stretched over the 2 days for lunch, and whole wheat spaghetti with homemade sauce for 2 dinners, with some granola bars and rice cakes for snacks. Both saturday and sunday I ended up about -100 calories from my daily goal.
And then yesterday I was feeling like shit about myself, and I was itching to see if there was any progress made on the scale..
Just weighed myself..
I am OUT of the 200’s! Once and for all!!
Goal Weight #1: DONE!
Gahhhhhhhhhhhhh! I’m so happyyyy!!! :DDD
AND I want to thank each and every one of you who have helped me get this far, I’ve never been more excited for the future of this journey. Hard part is over, there IS light at the end of this tunnel, and it comes in the form of seeing the number 1 in front of your weight on the scale.
So I didn’t even do a WIW last week.. I know it would just be bad cause Harry potter week was happening and I sorta fell off the wagon a bit.
This week: 202!
I know i was around that my last WIW.. I may have been 203 those two weeks ago.. but i gained like 2 pounds over harry potter week from all of my leftover (but delicious!) cupcakes. I worked so hard on them and nobody else was going to eat them, so i ended up having like 3 every night of the week. Bad bad idea for someone on a diet. But its all good, cause I’m coming back stronger and more motivated than ever. :]
Also.. with this mornings Oatmeal mishap, I’ve decided today to do more smaller meals throughout the day.. and I feel weird about it. Like I feel like I’ve just been sitting and eating ALL day long! like i feel like I’ve eaten a good 2000+ calories but in reality its only been like 400.. maybe. I dont know.. I’m not sure if i can eat so many small meals throughout the day, it feel like too much! ugh! :l
But anyyywhooooo, currently I’m going on walk/runs every night. I decided i would switch back and forth every day.. going for like an hour one night, and half an hour the next night, hour the night after that, then the next night a half an hour. Give my muscles a break every other day i think.. I’m already noticing a difference in my running though! :)))
How have your guys’ weeks gone??
Ohh geez.. it took a lot to make this.. Just made this to show my progress so far. I was 230 lbs in that top left picture. That was the picture that showed me just how far I had let myself go, and that’s when i decided the I needed to do something about it. I believe I was around 220+ in the bottom left picture.. was still super disgusted with myself.
And the 2 pictures on the right were taken today. I actually fit in this shirt again, which I haven’t been able been able to wear in 3+ years. I still have a long way to go, but today I’m feeling proud of what I’ve accomplished in just a few months.
But this is worth it! I wasn’t able to weigh myself Wednesday for whatever reason.. I think i just forgot that it was Wednesday. lol.
But yesterday I weighed in at 204!
And I had a FANTASTIC day yesterday, was a clear 200 cals. under my goal for the day. And I ate Special K cereal with soy milk for breakfast, Oatmeal and blueberries for lunch, and a big salad for dinner with shrimp and hard boiled eggs and junk.. So i couldn’t help but to weigh myself today..
Last week (after a week long vacation):
This week: 202.6!
This is it, this is the lowest weight I’ve been in a good 2 years, Now is when the real weight loss starts.
I’ve never been more excited for my life. :DD
(WIW will be back to normal next week, I promise :])
