One Month Down

Posted heatherislost on December 11th, 2011 | Filed under Uncategorized | Comment now »

So, I did it. I made it a month on my “lifestyle change” and lost 12 pounds since my heaviest. That feels amazing.
What also feels amazing is when people you haven’t seen in a while go, “You look good, what have you been doing?”

The thing that sucks is losing your boobs. I knew that they’d go down, but I always thought it would be a slow process. I’d lose an inch here, lose an inch there. Nope. My boobs dropped three sizes. They are now known as my incredible disappearing act. Next act is my waist!

I’ve even made a new song for my mantra.

Sing it in the tune of “Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes.”

Boobs, waist, hips and thighs, hips and thighs, Boobs, waist, hips and thighs, hips and thighs. Arms and legs and chin and face. Boobs, waist, hips and thighs, hips and thighs!


Long time, no posts

Welp. I made it through the First of three holidays and didn’t gain. I didn’t lose anything either, but that’s okay. At least I didn’t go back to old habits and GAIN.

Plus I’ve been frequenting the gym more and more. Pretty soon I’ll be a staple there. New member will come in and the manager will go, “And that lumpy thing on the treadmill is Heather. She’ here everyday. You should have seen her when she first walked in.”

Of course, they won’t say that. But you know.

A self butt kick

Some good news first. I bought a personal trainer for one session a month! WOOT! I figure this way I’ll have a way to stay on track. You know, because how EMBARRASSING would it be if I went back and was still in the same position as my last session? This is a nice big swift kick in the butt that I need.

So far this week I’ve worked out Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday, with plans to go today once I get some homework done first.

The bad news? My weight is just staying where it’s at. And it’s irritating. I know weight loss is a slow process. I know it’s not going to be a magical sleep and I wake up 150 pounds lighter. But to have my weight go up down, up down is just blargh.

Weatherly Blues

The sun… where art thou? Dark and gloomy day today. Usually rainy weather doesn’t get to me, I’m usually the one dancing in the rain, but today I just felt… blah. I had a headache and upset stomach, and felt woozy. No workout for me today.

On the plus side, I woke up this morning weighing in at 242.6 pounds. Yay for weight loss!

A new day

Woke up 2 pounds lighter. Yay! Also didn’t cheat and stuck on diet. Woot! Lastly, I worked out for a good hour.

Let’s hope I stay on this track!


Here we go.

So. This is it. The last weight loss journal, blog, internet thingy that I will have. And it will hold me accountable for losing weight. I WILL lose weight.

I was looking at pictures on Facebook again, which made me a little depressing. I saw pictures from my last weight loss success.

A few years ago I was 250 pounds. It sucked, and I hated it. I started to eat less, exercise more, and guess what? The weight started to melt off. It was so easy!

My pants started to get bigger, my waist was getting smaller, I had ONE chin. ONE! Then I made plans to go to Hollywood. I had a destination, and a goal. And it was working!

The big day came, I got on the scale, and it said “200.” I nearly jumped up and down in excitement. I wasn’t where I needed to be, but I was 50 lbs lighter!
I came back from Hollywood, and went back to work (ugh) and I started to get stressed, and depressed, and suddenly the weight wasn’t melting like it used to. I had plateaued. That was okay though, I just needed to readjust my diet and it would be okay. Nope.

Needless to say, the scale crept back up again. It stopped at 235, and I was okay with it. Not in the true sense of the word, but in the “That’s okay, I’m still 15 pounds lighter then I was at my heaviest.” 4 years later and it was still at 235. I got on the scale last week and it had crept up to 242. YIKES!

Last week me and a friend decided to go on a diet together. We WILL make this work. I was eating less, keeping track, all was well. I got on the scale the day before yesterday, and it was down to 235, yay! 7 pounds gone! Then I got on today, and it said I was at 225. Uhm… that would be good and all, but 17 pounds just didn’t seem right to me. That would have meant my pants would have felt a little bit different and they didn’t.

So I went out and got a new scale. It’s pretty cool. It’s a weight watchers scale that tracks your weight, and knows your goal.

Anyway, got on it, and it saddens me to say that I am at 245.2 lbs. GAH!

Let it begin!
