Finally out of the 230s

Posted matilda08 on September 9th, 2010 | Filed under Journal | Comment now »

Today I made it into the 220s. Im picking back up and getting very focused. I really dont plan on being here long. Ive started doing more eliptical lately and I can tell its been awesome. My life gets so busy this time of year so I am hoping and praying to stick to my plan!!! Im aiming to lose the 29lbs this year. Im learning so much about myself on this journey. Its been fun and through it all I have managed to keep pushing and for that I am very proud of myself because its so easy to give up!

Still pushing through, I was up to 237 now Im back down to 233.8 wooohooo!!!! During this journey you will gain and lose but you have to hang in there and stick to the plan. The 220s is very reachable this month and that makes me feel FAB!

Pressing on!

Ok so yes  I am STILL in the 230s! This week Im going to take it up a notch and have an all jog workout week. Jogging always helps to speed up my weight loss. It also feels really great after. Today I have on a shirt that I couldnt fit a month ago. Its really cute. Im going to set up a training session for this week so that they can take my measuments so that I can compare them to last year. My body is looking very different. My figure is showing its face. Im loving the results of the weight training mixed with cardio. I have to keep going!!!!!

learning to dust myself off

Yesterday was a decent day but it wasnt all that good. I ate a donut and I also had a caramel latta light. It was good and I didnt go over board but I did feel like I shouldnt have eaten it. Im proud that I limited the snacks because I could easily eat six donuts lol. I think that with the journey its important to be able to get back into the game!!!!!! You cannot let ONE bad day mess up the entire journey. I realize that I will have a few bad days during this journey but getting back out there and trying to win the game is my goal. I WILL DO THIS!

That was todays magic number. Most people wouldnt agree but I weigh in daily most of the time because it keeps me going and it gives me an idea of what Ill eat each day. I count calories and I eat 1600 or below usually around 1400. 1600 is pretty rare but I do have days that I eat them all. June was an good month I lost 7lbs. This month my goal is to lose 8lbs. As I said before Im not huge on making time sensative goals but with all the challenges I do on 3fatchicks in a way I have to but I wont be upset if I dont make it. My motivation is through the roof and I hope it stays for at least another three months lol. Ive been doing really good with the diet part my eating have truely been on plan huge plus for me!

I didnt give up! Im hanging in there

Its been such a long time since I wrote. Even though Ive been trying to stay on plan its so hard to keep up with my blog, 3fatchicks and all the other social social sites I am a member of. This entire journey has been one that ive truly learned more about myself. Its soooo hard to stick to my program. Im very up and down with my weight lose and its starting to get to me. I know I can do it, but Im not working for the long run. My thing is when I lose a few lbs I get comfy and slack off. Im about 16lbs away 225-220 which was the weight I got down to when I had lost 35lbs. Im have to get back down so that I can keep progressing. Ive been working out harder and Ive recently started just jogging. In the past jogging has always helped me burn burn burn. Im trying to do this jog program for two months and hopefully the ball will be back rolling again. Ive already lost about three lbs this week but Ive been working hard and eating right. But I cant stop doing what Im doing. I have to keep going.


Ive notice that when I stop checking 3fatchicks I get off plan and I need to continue to post to keep my mind on my goal weight. I have not given up and I WILL make goal. its just taking longer than I thought. Ive also notice that I shouldnt put time limits on the amounts of weight I would like to lose. My approach is a little different now. I basically just try to stay on plan daily and keep going. Im really going to try to keep this blog updated. Also if you dont mind please leave some will power dust, please and thank you!!!

Ive been pretty much following my diet and plan but I havent really lost any weight yet. It doesnt bother me that much but it does a little. Ive been walking three miles aprox five times per week. Ive been eating about 1200-1400 cals per day I know one problem is that I dont drink enough water. But ive been adding green tea and trying to force myself to drink it.  losing weight just takes so much patience and thats the hardest part but Im not giving up.
