Weight Loss Update
So, I was going to update last Friday but I woke up to my monthly gift from Mother Nature, thanks bitch. So I skipped the weigh in, and basically skipped life for the next 5 days. I remembered what my doctor had said about staying away from sugar and salt during my PMS/period and I did okay. I did make myself a few brownies in a mug… But I mostly ate at home and when I didn’t I made good choices. I didn’t exercise much though.
So I weighed in this morning, 3 weeks since my “starting” weigh in, which was exactly my original starting weight. I am pleased with the results. I know if I were exercising more this past week it might have been lower. My birthday is on February 7, and I would like to be down to 274 by then. That’s my first short term goal.
Ah, I did not forget. It has just taken two full days to get my shit together as my Laptop is full and can’t record any new video or pictures.
Here are my NEW “Starting Weight Pictures”. I felt weird taking these again since I have taken them in the past.. Whatever. That’s in the past. This is now. Weight at weigh-in yesterday morning was 278.0. Only 11.5bs away from my highest weight of 289.5. Let the new journey begin.
Finally. Day 5. The effin’ scale went down. Thank you Grilled Cheesus. It’s still up from Monday’s weigh in, but it’s down from yesterday. It seemed like it was up every day. Frustrating for your first week back on track. But I didn’t give up. What did I do yesterday that was different, oh… worked out. Ate clean all day (did have one treat at the end of the day). Sugar withdrawls are hard. I keep giving in to the cravings. I just need to get through it.
I have a lot to do today, so I intend to keep pretty active. But I am still going to do the 30 day shred DVD right now before I do anything else.
Looking at the date today…. when is my period coming? That could shake things up with the scale too. I definitely feel PMS-y. Hmmmmmmmm.

Yesterday’s weight was 244.0
Still not on the ball with my eating. I did get back to working out though. Now I have to get both on track. I am so tired of my damn clothes not fitting. I am going to a birthday party in a couple hours and I had the hardest time picking out an outfit because I dont want to wear my jeans because they are too tight.
My birthday is quickly approaching. I am excited. I am having a party at Babycakes and a lot of friends are going to come. I just babysat last night for about 7 hours and I made the money to buy the dress I want to wear to my party. Going to buy it this weekend.
Tomorrow my custom framed Darren How to Succeed in Business poster will be ready. I am so excited. That thing was expensive…. custom framing is pricey. But it’s going to look so gorgeous. It’s going to be the most expensive art in my house! But considering we paid all that money to fly to NY, the money for the tickets, the money for the actual poster… I should spend a little more to keep the poster nice and be happy with it. I will post a picture as soon as I get it.
In other news I CAN.NOT.STOP. listening to Wanna Be Startin’ Something…. Darren is perfection!!!!!!! I can’t wait for this episode!!!
Bad picture, I couldn’t see my screen, but it’s me on top of Cowles Mountain yesterday.
