{December 10, 2012}   Going Steady

After making that title, I am giggling to myself at the reaction it might receive for those of my parent’s generation who consider the term “Going Steady” as something totally unrelated to this post. ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s my weekly weight loss results…..I am STILL holding steady at last week’s weight but I am cool with that because last week brought a HUGE drop as you already know if you read it. ๐Ÿ™‚ I am going to be removing my old goal chart that was to lose 50 pounds by Christmas (since I completed it!, yay!) and will be replacing it with my new goal of getting below that evil 3-0-0….UGH! I hate that number and when I get below it, I will be proud to say Good Riddance!

I took my monthly measurements the other day and I have lost another 4 1/2 inches throughout my body! This brings me to a total of 23 1/2 inches gone all together! That number just totally blows my mind….almost 2 feet or a toddler! AH! I have lost a toddler……you know, I think that sounded better in my head than it does on here…..

Anyways, 2 more weeks to Christmas and I wonder how CLOSE I will get on my second goal by then! I’ll have to wait and see and I will let you know the results again next week!

Happy Hannukah for those who celebrate it! Please tell me I spelled that right cause I have seen it spelled so many different ways! ๐Ÿ™‚

{November 5, 2012}   One is the loneliest number

So I stole my title from a song because I am down 1 more pound BUT on the bright side, I am actually ecstatic about this news! WHY? Because I’m a woman and I gain water weight once a month…LOL…and for once, my weight STILL went down regardless of that fact. ๐Ÿ™‚ So, yippee! I am now down 43 pounds total and am 7 pounds away from my goal.

Today was also my monthly measurements day and I have lost 4.5 more inches! This is less than my loss for the previous 2 months but I dropped inches in places where it had been slower coming off and less in the areas where it had been dropping fast so I think it’s a good balance. This brings me to a total of 19 inches lost overall which is over a foot throughout my body! Heck yes! ๐Ÿ™‚

I am starting to see differences in the way my clothing is fitting, things are getting loser and some are starting to look better. I have ONE pair of jeans that are like baggy in the legs but fit in the butt and I haven’t been able to wear them in a long time because of all the weight I gained. Over a year ago, I put them on and couldn’t even get the zipper closed. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ The other day, I put them back on just to see if they fit any better and they zipped! ๐Ÿ™‚ They are still snugger than I like though because I don’t like wearing anything TIGHT whatsoever so I want to lose a bit more in my hips and thighs BUT they zipped easy and they are a size 24. For those that might be unaware, most of my clothes I wear are from my heaviest size, so they are 28 and 30’s. The fact that I can zip up a size 24 is so exciting for me! Just HAD to share that news with everyone because I was so thrilled and I can’t wait until I can wear them again. They are the only pair of jeans I have ever worn that I actually liked and I know my husband loves them, too! ๐Ÿ˜‰

So, things are looking up although my body is feeling rather yuck at the moment! Here’s for another good weight check in and I will update you guys again next week! Have a great week! ๐Ÿ™‚

Time for my weekly weight loss results!

AND I’m either at the same weight as last week OR I lost 3 more pounds. Why am I so unsure? WELL…my scale has usually been saying I am 3 more pounds than what the doctor’s scale is so on the weeks I am not weighing in THERE, that’s how I figure the weight loss. Last week, the doctor’s scale said the SAME exact thing as my scale, so…I’m at a loss. I’m honestly fine with either results, although 3 more pounds down IS exciting. Even being at the same weight is still better than weight gained, right?

I guess the MAIN reason I am fine with either result is because of my new measurements. Since last month, I am down 7 1/2 more inches! woohoo! After seeing those numbers, I can look at myself in the mirror and seem to see a difference, too! So if you remember how many inches I lost last month, that’s 14 1/2 inches lost TOTAL since about 2 weeks after I started when I began measuring myself. Over a foot total I’ve lost throughout my body! Very exciting and for some reason, that makes me happier than even the 31 pound loss! Is that crazy? I don’t know, but it makes me want to jump up and down right now!

Sorry for my exclamation happy self today. I have 19 more pounds to go and 2 1/2 months before Christmas…Do you think I will make it? I sure will be trying and I hope so! See you all next week for more results and have a nice rest of the day!!!!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚
