Thank you! I went in to the DMV on Tuesday, I am really hoping that I like my new pic. I actually went bar hopping last week and the bouncer did a double take and kept trying to trip me up (ie when's my BD, where do I live) lol so that is what really prompted me to change it.
woot woot, 3 lbs is great. Definitely okay to adjust your goal for the challenge if it keeps you in
When I first started, I went on a really restrictive calorie counting diet (I think I must have been doing around 1200 plus exercise). That didn't last long because despite losing weight, I also was just really tired all the time. So, I've really been anywhere between 1500-1800 the last year. I don't have a specific number I need to be under anymore, but I tried to stick to that. I will definitely still be around; I'm considering whether or not I should give myself a 5lb cushion. not sure yet.
I am so. sorry. That is a terrible experience to have to go through, and I send you my condolences. I have two brothers (27 and 25 years old) and I can't imagine the pain you are going through.
Thank you so much. I'm sorry that your routine has been out of whack. Please keep going. You're right, even if you have a bad day where you go beyond your calories, you just have to get back on track the next day. There were many times that I went off track (heck last week wasn't great with Thanksgiving), but you can do this in the long run and that's all that matters.
Haha nice! I am a huge Harry Potter fan, and that shirt sounds awesome! Yes of course! I actually posted them because I hope they are inspirational. I always used to look at before and afters and it motivated me so much.
Thank you so much
It's nice to hear that I look different. Sometimes I still see myself as bigger than what I really am. A lot of people around me have been calling me "thin" and that's not something that I really see yet lol.
haha I'm in. I told myself I'm starting eating healthier now that Thanksgiving is over. Damage control for me too
I hope y'all had a great holiday
I am back at work today after a week off, and I am already counting the days until Christmas break (15 days and counting)!
I have been holding steady at about 134-136 this past week, which is surprising because I threw calorie counting out the window on Thanksgiving and on Saturday. But, I'm really a lot better at portion control than I was in the past, and I think that's why the scale was good to me.
I'm in a surprisingly great mood today despite it being Monday already. my boyfriend and I spent our first Thanksgiving together, and while we didn't make a big deal about it, it was super nice. I also hung out with friends and family and I just feel really awesome about where my life is going right now. I had a couple of bad days a few weeks ago where I was overwhelmed with life stuff, but I think I've gotten a good handle on things. I'm even re-starting my credential program in January, which means I could be teaching by next january.
here's to a good week for everyone
also, I just posted my Goal post in the Goal section. Click on my link under my ticker if you wanna check out more pics of my before and afters.
