Going through the BIG D

I’m back 🙂 I bet most of you probably thought that I had fallen off the wagon, huh? I am VERY proud to say that I have not fallen off the wagon. I may have made the wagon a bit more comfortable, but I have definitely not fallen off. I have been so very busy over the past several weeks that I have not had time to blog. Which I regret because I haven’t been keeping track of my wonderful progress. I cannot believe that over a month has passed since my last post. I am proud to announce that I have lost an additional 20 pounds since my last post. I am currently at 178.2 pounds. Which means I have lost 75.8 pounds since Christmas. HOLY COW!

So why haven’t I been around blogging? Well my 5 year marriage has ended and I have been moving my ex husband out of my house. Talk about life changing, huh? Talk about a great opportunity to eat and eat and refuse to exercise. I’m not going to say that there hasn’t been moments, because there have. But, I will say that I have kept the forward momentum going. Now that I’m a single mom of two very active girls I have had to rethink my work outs. I don’t get to the gym for formal work outs as often as before, but I try to get there about twice a week. Though, everyday during my breaks at work I am walking about 3 miles total. The walking in conjunction with really watching my calories still I am still losing weight.

I really need to take new measurements and some recent pictures. I hope to do that in the next week or so. I am proud to say that my size 12 capris that I have on now are getting pretty loose. I may even attempt a size 8. We shall see!!

A Plateau…..of sorts

Ok, so I have been facing some major life changes over the past 6-8 weeks or so. Due to the sensitive nature of this situation I cannot go into detail here yet (probably will in the next couple of months). What I will say is that pretty much every aspect of my life will be radically changing over the next couple of months. To start out with I was dealing with the stress quite well. I was still working out, eating well, and avoiding known temptations when possible. Continue reading

Lazy and Sloppy

I’ve known for the past couple of days I needed to write a post about the past couple of weeks. This last week in particular I have been incredibly lazy and sloppy. I have been eating over my calories (way over in some cases) and I have been lacking the motivation to work out that I have had in the past couple of weeks. I know I need to get motivated again, and I am working this weekend to figure out how I can change things up to bring the motivation back. Continue reading

Week of February 27th

Well, this week has been kind of an up and down roller coaster kind of a week. I have lost a total of 1.6 pounds, however I started the week at 216.8 pounds and by Tuesday I was up to 218.4 pounds and now I am down to 215.2 pounds. So, this week I have been battling the scale. Though, I am thrilled that I am still making forward progress. It’s amazing how much my life has changed in the last couple of months in my relationship with food. Earlier this week I was having a chocolate craving. I tried to fight it – I really did. Had I not needed to go to the store for a few grocery items I probably would have resisted, but instead I Continue reading

This Week February 13th

This has been a challenging week for me. If you recall I had a health scare that landed me in the emergency room twice within 6 hours or so. As a result I have not been able to work out this week like I would have otherwise. I have also felt very exhausted all week. Though, I am very proud to say that I have still stayed within my calorie budget all week long even though I have not been able to exercise since Monday. All in all I only lost 0.8 pounds this week. Though, considering what I have been through Continue reading

Review of this Week February 6th

This week has been a challenging week! I was dealing with a lot of extra stress due to my husband being in the hospital. Not to mention that time of the month so I did a little bit of more over eating than I have in weeks past. Though, even with this being said I have still lost an additional 1.8 pounds.  Continue reading

This Week in Review

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all enjoyed Super Bowl parties last night. We had a great time. I was very excited to be able to indulge in a few treats (namely, brownies) and still stay within my calorie budget for Sunday. Very exciting! Over all this was a very good week. I feel like I am falling into a comfortable rhythm as far as how many calories I need to consume and getting Continue reading
