Weigh-in Wednesday

Beginning Weight (12/20/2012)- 330.6

Last Week’s Weight – 279

Today’s Weight – 277.6

Total Weight Loss – 53

I love that my scale has the date on it!
Oh thank god...I am back on track.

I have learned a few things over the last three weeks...

1. Protein Protein Protein!
2. Water Water Water
3. Faith in your self
4. Exercise
5. Find ways to have what you want/need while staying on plan!

I learned that when I get just 30 minutes of some sort of movement I don't suffer from head hunger. I don't munch and I find myself making better choices.

Going to see if I can keep this up for another week!

I needed that photos....right there....that one that showed HOW bad I have been doing over the last two weeks...How far I have allowed myself to fall off the wagon.

Sure I have TONS of "reasons"....TONS of "excuses" that I could list off and drone on about but I won't. I have done that lately and obviously it hasn't made much of a difference. The only important thing is that I have CHOSEN to not eat what I should and I have CHOSEN to eat what I shouldn't!!

I have given up the makes me feel like crap...after three days I am going though a bit of withdrawal but I am starting to feel I am going to keep on keeping on!

Completely off track

Well, I seem to have stalled.

The problem is NOT with the band or with the way my body is responding to the band.

The problem is between my ears...The part of my brain that controls what my fringers take up to my mouth!

I gotta do something...perhaps I will focus on getting the sugar out of my diet...I think once again I am going to put myself on a liquid protein diet for a few days...I obviously can't be trusted right now.

I hate when I get like this..I get so down on myself...and the worst part is that I do this to myself...I allow myself to eat something I shouldn't...I justify it as..."Oh I will just have one...and then I get back on track" and the sad thing is that I NEVER get back on track....until I hit rock bottom and decide that I just need to get my shit together.

That is about where I am...

And if I was ever going to pick a week to get my shit back in order it is this week...

My kids are on Fall Break and will be staying with their Papa most of the week...For whatever reason they think when they don't have school that they get to live at Papa's....If someone let me have free reign and eat whatever I wanted ALL THE TIME I would want to live there

I am going to strive to make better choices...increase my protein and water in take...REMOVE SUGAR FROM MY LIFE....and get back to working out every day!

So we shall see what happens this weigh-in Wednesday!

I interview on Friday @ 11:00am!

On Tuesday (one business day later), I received a phone call from Edward Jones tell me that they wanted to offer me the internship position!

Whether it is true or not I am taking this fast turn around to mean that I am AWESOME!

On other news, I have another Job interview with Edward Jones for a full time position that will start the June after I graduate!

I haven't weighed in...just not feeling it today! I know that is cheating but

40 weeks since....

Beginning Weight (12/20/2012)- 330.6

Last Week’s Weight – 275

Today’s Weight – 272.2

Total Weight Loss – 58.4


I am down 2.8 pounds!

I had stepped on the scale on Thursday last week and was a bit disheartened by the fact that it read 277. Like I said last week, I try not to look too much into it since my weight fluctuates stupidly.

Anywho...I am pretty excited about my weight loss...

I am officially the lightest I have been on this journey and the lightest I have been since FOREVER!

So on the running front...

I tried to go back to running...and after about 100 feet my hip started hurting. The next day it was so sore. I am back on the regimen of ice and stretches. I talked to my bone doc and he said that I have a short IBT which is the tendon that runs down the outside of your hip. It can aggravate the bursae in your hip and be painful. He has a bunch of stretches for me to do and hopes that I can fix the short tendon thing. Apparently it is going to hurt like hell but if it will get me moving I am game.

So it is back to the row machine...watching my protein...drinking lots of water...and we will see what next week brings!
