{January 21, 2013}   Another week, another pound!

This is a short little update cause I don’t have too much to say other than I am down another pound! πŸ™‚ As long as it keeps coming off instead of going on, I will BE ok with the slow drops! Total is now 65 pounds! YAY! πŸ™‚

Next week, I will probably see my doctor for another weight check so I will let you know more then! Have a great week, everyone!

I’m another 2 pounds down! That brings my total weight loss to date to….64! πŸ™‚

Lately, I seem to be pretty consistently dropping 2 pounds a week. I know it’s not huge numbers, but I am very happy with it being consistent and slow but steady. Hopefully, this will keep me for keeping a bunch of saggy skin all over that you tend to get when dropping a lot of weight quickly! Slow and steady is better than NONE, right? πŸ™‚

That’s all I really have to say as far as my weight update…BUT I just thought I would share with all my readers that starting this next Sunday, I will be doing something new and different on Sundays! I’m really excited about my idea and I think it will be fun for me to do and I hope everyone will enjoy my new Sunday posts! I’m going to keep it a secret for now, but come back Sunday if you want to know what I will be doing! πŸ™‚

Have a great week!



{January 7, 2013}   Time for another Update!

Drum roll, please!

I am down another 2 pounds this week for a grand total of 62 pounds loss! Woohoo! I just love the sound of that! Only 7 pounds more and I will get to say adieu to the number 300, hopefully forever!

I also took my measurements for the month and I lost 2 1/2 more inches, which is not as big of a number as I would like but I guess it was going to happen eventually, right? This brings my inches lost to 26! That’s over 2 feet! πŸ™‚

I’m still hanging on and hoping 2013 will see much more weight loss and better health for my future as well as a continued new outlook on life! Thanks as always to all my followers that stand by me and cheer me on! You are the BEST

Have a great week!



{December 31, 2012}   Excited for 2013!

First of all, Happy New Years Eve everyone! πŸ™‚ Tomorrow I will be letting you all know my goals for the year 2013…I don’t like the word resolution, I prefer “goals”! I will go ahead and give away one of them since technically, I am starting today.

For 2013, I will be posting daily just like I did in 2011! I miss posting daily and I want to try it again. I also have a few other goals in mind, but you’ll have to wait for tomorrow’s New Years post to find those out! πŸ™‚

As for my weight loss update, I lost another 2 pounds! I am now 308, which is 60 pounds total and I only need 9 more pounds off before I hit my 2nd short term goal to get below 300! YAY! It’s getting closer and closer!

For Christmas, I got a couple of shirts from my Mom that I immediately looked at and was like, “I doubt I will be able to fit these!” One shirt was a couple sizes smaller than what I HAD worn before losing all the weight and the other one was 3 sizes smaller…..Oh what the hey, I will just disclose my sizes….On Christmas Day, I was wearing a shirt that was 5x, which WAS a little big when I first got it but still fit….I had it pinned so it wouldn’t fall off my shoulders…..And the shirts my mom got me were a 1x and 2x. Well, surprise, surprise, the 2x fit me perfectly! Yea…I was shocked! The 1x was a little bit snugger than I like my shirts but it fit better than I thought it would. It really made me feel good that I could FIT something cause at my highest weight, NOTHING I tried on ever seemed to fit!

Well, today, I was running errands with my Mom and we went by Kmart and I got 3 new skirts and 2 shirts that ALL fit when I tried them on….If you’ve never been overweight, you can’t imagine how good it feels for everything you try on to fit! And then I got another cute shirt at Goodwill that I didn’t even try on until I got home and it fit perfect! I am just speechless, it’s an awesome feeling to find clothes that fit again. Eventually, one of these days, I would like to get out of “Plus size” where I can really shop anywhere, but hey, I am excited for where I am for now.

Next week, I will be taking measurements again and let everyone know how much more inches I have lost. Thank you so much for those who cheer me on and care about my journey. I don’t think I would have been able to get as far as I have come without you and I can’t wait to see how far I go in 2013!



{December 24, 2012}   Christmas Eve Update :)

First of all, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone! I’m going to keep this short but just wanted to let you know that I have lost another 3 pounds and since my first goal was the 50 by Christmas……my final tally by Christmas is 58 pounds lost! So I exceeded my goal by 8 pounds! πŸ™‚ YAY! I LOVE the sound of that!

BUT my journey continues in losing weight, so I will see you all next Monday for another update! Since I plan to stay eating healthy through Christmas Day, I’m hoping to see some more loss then! Again, I wish you all Happy Holidays!



{December 17, 2012}   The Journey Continues!

In 3 days, I will have been on this Lifestyle Change Plan for 5 months. Five tough months with temptations everywhere I look, yet I am proud to say I have fought temptation and won a good 95% of the time. NOT 100% of the time, although I know some people are sticklers for this but I think I’m more of the type where, There’s food out there that you LOVE and you’re going to always crave, to say you will NEVER eat any of it again is pretty unrealistic, right? I think moderation is going to have to be the key. Eat healthy but allow yourself times where you have a little of something you really want along with a bunch of healthy. πŸ™‚

Right now, my life is pretty much rarely allow myself something I truly crave due to the amount of weight I’m trying to lose, but I would love to get down to a healthy weight and live my life with healthy moderation. BUT now for what you really want to know! How much weight did I lose this past week? Another two pounds! YAY! So I am now at 55 pounds lost in almost 5 months AND just 14 left to get under that evil number 300! UGH! I just hate the sound of it!

Right now I am most excited about the fact I am 5 pounds OVER my Christmas goal and still one week left to Christmas! I wonder how much more I can lose this next week! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone! I will STILL do my post on Christmas Eve, but it may be late!



{December 3, 2012}   Goal one Complete!

Ok…so I kind of already announced this on Facebook but for those who don’t follow me on there, I let it be known last Friday that I met my first goal! Yep, that’s right. After being stuck for a few weeks, I finally hit my 50 pounds by Christmas!
What I have yet to reveal though is that when I weighed myself this morning, I saw to my surprise that I was down another 3 pounds! So the total is NOW 53 pounds lost since the beginning! From 368 to 315! So I will now be starting my second goal with a good head start. I’ve had this next goal in mind since the beginning. My next goal is to get under 300. I don’t have a specific deadline in mind for this one, but of course, the sooner the better! I have NOT been under 300 for about 5 years and at the beginning of 2012, I weighed in at 376…9 pounds more than I started THIS journey with. I was dangerously close to 400…a weight that I never could have imagined I would get close to. I was extremely depressed and had given up on ever being able to lose weight….Now I am 16 pounds from being under 300 again and it feels amazing!
I know I can do this and I am so incredibly grateful for people in my life that have been motivating me!
Next week, I will have my next measurement results…so excited to see what they will be! Thanks to those who leave inspiring comments and prayed for me in my journey! πŸ™‚



{November 26, 2012}   Stuck…and it doesn’t feel good

As if other things in my life weren’t already messing up, I appear to be stuck 4 pounds away from my Christmas goal. 😦 Yep, you heard right, I am STILL the same weight as last week even though I didn’t cheat on Thanksgiving! Ugh! My goal is so close, yet seemingly so far……I just want to get there! 😦

Well, I’m NOT giving up no matter how long I stay stuck like this! I will continue and pray for better results NEXT week. Can you all pray for them as well? I really could use some good luck right about now! Until next week, hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving AND have a good week this week! πŸ™‚



{November 19, 2012}   And then it STOPPED….

This is my weekly weight loss check in and by the title you may have already guessed my news for the week…..Yep….same as last week. No loss, no gain..well, OK, that’s not really true, I lost like 1/4 of a pound. LOL…But it’s still the same Main number on the scale so yea, I hit my first week in a LONG time where there’s no poundage lost. I knew it was coming and it happens to everyone but it’s definitely a bummer right now since I am only 4 pounds away from my Christmas goal of 50. But hey, I got to remember the positive….I’m still down 46 pounds and only need 4 pounds more with a month to go! That’s nothing to be sad about at all!

So…I refuse to let this get me down! I am still happy and I feel good about the future and I just KNOW I will reach my goal BEFORE Christmas and I will be able to go even further beyond that! πŸ™‚ So cross your fingers with me that next week, I will return here with some more pounds off…..maybe even the final 4…who knows? Anything is possible if you believe!



{October 29, 2012}   Weight Loss Update

Here’s a short little update for you!

I am down 2 more pounds since last week making my weight loss at 38 pounds total now! Woohoo! That’s all I have to say in that regard, but I also wanted to use this update to wish everyone in Hurricane Sandy’s path safety and PLEASE take the warnings seriously and take all precautions you can! From someone who lives in the South and has SEEN what Hurricanes can do, they are nothing to mess with and they need to be taken very serious! There’s always a chance that the next storm that hits you is the BIG one that no one THOUGHT would happen. 😦

I hope all my East Coast bloggers, friends and family make it through safely and you are in my thoughts right now!
