Weight Loss Support - Ok I'll stop cyring into my bowl of Fiber One...
02-17-2009, 11:18 AM
So on vday weekend I messed up food wise. bad. and i was killing myself over it- stressing wayyy too much. I'm just so close to goal and couldn't believe I'd sabotaged myself. Today (tuesday) is weigh in day and i was kind of dreading it but i weigh every week and wasn't going to hide from it. I just KNEW is was going to be bad. like big BIG gain bad.
I was down. another 2.6 lbs in a week.
I thought i was going to pass out. then i thought it must be a mistake. then i thought i was going to pass out again. (from being so happy of course!) I know about shocking your system sometimes and how it's a good thing once in a while but when i've just eaten pizza and cookies it seems very far from positive.
anyway, i'm now 2lbs from my end goal!! i'm so ecstatic right now i could puke. (but i won't) not only that but i've started the 30day shred and was soo happy about my loss that i couldn't WAIT to work out. and that's a place in my life i NEVER thought i'd be... happy about exercise...
so i just wanted to share my joy with you guys. i totally have the sun shining, birds singing thing going on right now... :D hope your day is equally wonderful!!

YAY!!! Congrats! That's great. I'm so uplifted to hear such good stories. You'll be at goal in no time!

WTG on your surprise loss! Sometimes we let things get to us and convence ourselves that we didn't do good, and then at WI- your surprised and HAPPY!!! :dizzy: Keep up the great work.
02-17-2009, 12:19 PM
:hugs: I am so proud of you, congratulations! I hope you're crazy proud of yourself...because you SHOULD BE!
02-17-2009, 12:27 PM
WTG! Yup this valentines day I was a bit off my game but I didn't gain- so I'm happy :D
I guess my system was kicking it into high gear- but at the same time that day my hubby and I were walking around the zoo from 10 am to 5 pm. And the best part? My feet didn't hurt one bit! Before after an hour I would have been dead just wanting to sit down!
02-17-2009, 12:27 PM
well done on your loss! You're doing brilliantly. i cna't imagine what it must be like to almost be at your goal weight.
02-17-2009, 12:35 PM
thanks for the kind words guys! i really feel like a million bucks! i'm not poster child for weight loss or anything aneleh but if me being 2lbs away helps you get where you're going i'm happy to share! i never realized my lack of energy before... now that i have so much i don't know what to do with it all! :lol:
02-17-2009, 01:14 PM
Wow...just 2 pounds to go!! Yippee.
I have to tell you corazonas, you have such a good attitude! You project such positive vibes. I really enjoy your posts.
02-17-2009, 01:38 PM
good for you!! you've got it in the bag chickie!
02-17-2009, 02:12 PM
i never realized my lack of energy before... now that i have so much i don't know what to do with it all! :lol:
Oh man I totally agree with this! Now I wake up before my alarm clock and I'm up and ready to go! I went to the zoo last weekend and after 8 hours of walking around my feet weren't even tired! I love it!
02-17-2009, 02:22 PM
Hey Corazonas - how do those elbows look now??:D You are awesome girl! Rub some of that attitude on me!!
02-17-2009, 02:36 PM
Congratulations!! TWO pounds to go! Your doing fabulous! an inspiration for all, Way 2 go!
02-17-2009, 03:20 PM

beerab- great job! i haven't been to the zoo in like a year, i should go again... i could probably wear out my kids! :lol:
and buckeye, im totally going to take a pic of my elbow one of these days. im the biggest freak i know but i'm just so proud of them! haha

I'm doing Body for Life which allows for a cheat day, reason being to "trick" the body which is used to dieting.
02-17-2009, 03:27 PM
That's wonderful! I can't think of anything better than reaching your goal, and you're almost there! I think we beat ourselves up way too much when we 'slip up' on our eating. Keep up the great work, your fingers are almost touching that goal!!
02-17-2009, 03:30 PM
Yeah!!! I feel a "goal party" comin' on!
02-17-2009, 03:42 PM
Corazonas - you are most totally not a freak. I make a point of NOT looking at my elbows and look forward to the day when they look good!
02-17-2009, 04:42 PM
omg nods you're totally right! on another thread we were talking about how many chicks here are from TX and doing a meet and greet... GOAL PARTY IN TX BABY!! haha
02-17-2009, 05:16 PM
You know what? I didn't go too overboard on V-day but I ate chicken marsala, a cup of soup, and a slice of apple pie with a scoop of ice cream. It was my free meal day AND V-day, so why not? I hopped on the scale this morning and it read 217...I've been OP for 9 days and plan on staying this way. I was stuck in the 220s since November. N-O-V-E-M-B-E-R. I am beyond happy and really excited, so I can't imagine how excited you are being only 2lbs away from goal! Keep up the good work, girl!
02-17-2009, 05:27 PM
thanks for sharing the joy and letting us know it can be done!
good on you!
02-17-2009, 06:31 PM
yey well done, especially since it is supposed to be even harder as you get close to goal!
Your showing me it can be done!
02-17-2009, 08:25 PM
great job wormwooddoll!! holy crap if i was stuck at a weight for more than like 3 months i would FREAKING CRACK!
and i know tarryn! i'm sooo happy it's still coming off regularly. if i stall with this last 2 lbs i just might cry. haha it CAN be done! YOU can do it!! :D
02-17-2009, 08:29 PM
YAY!! you are sooo close! keep up the good work!
02-17-2009, 08:33 PM
corazonas It was such a downer! I would see 220...222...226...then 224...then 222...and I caught glimpse of 219 a few times. But after the holidays I just let go. I'm not even sure why! I just naturally eat healthier on my own, but for some reason...From Dec-Jan, I just went into a "I don't care" rut and just ate all kinds of crap! Tsk tsk on me.
To be honest, I don't think my whole heart was in it. But I wrote down all the reasons WHY I want this and it opened my eyes. Since then I've been doing this the right way. Especially if I want something special...I make room for it. I don't over do it and ruin my whole day! This was the first weekend I didn't order a pizza, or go to RiteAid and get a pint of ice cream (800+ calories, eee!), or buy a thing of cookies, or some kind of candy, or nachos and spicy cheese and pig out. I was in totally control.
02-17-2009, 08:40 PM
Great job kiddo!
02-17-2009, 09:39 PM
corazona's in the zooonne! way to go! :D
02-17-2009, 10:32 PM
Congrats fellow Texan! (and if you want to point me in the direction of that thread... I love Texans :) ) Very impressive to be so close to goal - it's just beautiful to see hard work pay off. Nicely done.
02-18-2009, 10:18 AM
um, i think we just threadjacked somebody's introduction thread... :lol: BUT when i hit that 130 you bet your butt i'll be starting one calling all texans to come party!! :D (and anybody else that wants to make the trip) ;)
02-18-2009, 10:19 AM
Make sure its a party without any junk food! haha
02-18-2009, 10:48 AM
How exciting! You should be so proud of yourself. Treat yourself to something special when you reach goal!
inspired by you
02-18-2009, 11:07 AM
Way to go chickie! Your almost there. Heck, probably be there by the time I finish this post...lol....you've done an excellent job. Now get ready for maintenance mode.
02-18-2009, 11:14 AM
jah- no doubt! i can get wild without food.... :D
harris- i AM!! i'm getting a very big and beautiful tattoo on my rib cage. im DYING to have it done but promised myself i would wait until goal and if i cheat and just get it i'll remember that every time i see the tat forEVER. so im waiting... ;)
