Just another weblog

It’s been a LONG time January 6, 2014

Filed under: Uncategorized — unskinnygirl @ 2:36 pm

Well… Hello folks. It’s been a VERY long time since I have posted a blog on here. I figured it was time to start up again. I did lose a total of 85 pounds the last time I had blogged about weight loss. Since then I’ve had a baby,and my life changed and being on maternity leave has left me falling into bad habits again. I haven’t gained a lot of weight back. Actually I was the same weight I was pre pregnancy. Until Christmas hit and I gained a whopping 7 pounds. So it is definitely time to get back on the wagon and lose the rest of the weight that I wanted to lose to begin with. My goal is another 25 pounds. That has always been my goal! Hopefully with this blog,and the help of weight watchers again. I can reach that goal.


Exciting news! September 15, 2012

Well,I know I haven’t blogged in a while,I don’t think I many of my regular blog followers are really active anymore either. That’s alright. I found out on Monday that I am pregnant. Very exciting as we have been tryin for almost a year,with one miscarriage prior to this pregnancy. I’m hopin and praying this pregnancy sticks! I did lose weight this week. About 3 pounds. I’m not tryin to. I think I need to adjust my WW points for maintainance. As I’m still loosely following my regular daily points value. I’m not gonna try to lose weight while pregnant. So I’m gonna adjust my points and just use it as a guideline. I’ve worked way to hard to lose these 85 pounds,to just gain it all back while pregnant. I asked my dr about following WW and she didn’t have much advice. Sooooo I’m gonna do some research and figure out my own plan!


I hit onederland today!!!! August 21, 2012

Hello folks,I have not blogged in a loooooong time! Been very very busy this summer. Haven’t focused to much on losing weight this summer. It makes me feel fantastic that I have been able to maintain. However,somehow,I have finally managed to reach under 200 pounds. I weighed in at 198 this morning. I almost had a heart attack. I ate so incredibly poor this weekend,but somehow managed to pull this off. I haven’t been under 200 pounds since probably grade 9? This is a total of 82 pounds lost. Looking for at least another 20-30 pounds. And that will come in time. I’m not. Nearly as anxious about all this weight loss stuff like I used to. But I’m still losing,and losing it slowly,and enjoying a little more freedom with my diet,while maintaining or losing. It’s literally taken all summer to lose the last 5-7 pounds needed to reach the 100’s. I am ok with that. I would probably almost be at goal weight if I had stuck to plan like I should’ve. But I’m ok with my progress. Just excited about hitting the under 200 mark.


Been a long time! July 25, 2012

Wow,I’ve really been slacking on the blogging! This is the longest I have ever gone without blogging,since I started. Really,not a lot going on with me. I’m still hovering around the 202-205 mark I just can’t seem to get past 200 pounds. However,I figured out the reason for that today. I use an app to track WW points,since I’ve changed my weight in there,I assumed the daily points values would also automatically change,well,I was wrong. I thought it was very strange that my points had not changed,so I recalculated my points and for a while now they should’ve been at 33 not at 37. That makes a big difference. No wonder I’ve just been maintaining. Which,honestly,I’ve been fine with,after almost 80 pounds lost,it’s been nice to just maintain and relax about it. However,I still want to get below that darn,200 mark.


Things are back on track! July 13, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — unskinnygirl @ 7:38 am

So I hit 203 this morning. 77 pounds down. Man this weightloss has been slow,but it’s completely my own fault lately. I’m finally down a little,and now I’m going to have to be really careful this weekend. I have a bachelorette party to attend Saturday it’s an all day over night thing. And food is being prepared by others. This keeps happening to me!!!!!! Hence the slow weight loss lately! I also have been really good with the purging. Did it once this week. Which lately….. That’s a victory. Hoping to have an entire week free of it next week. I’ve kicked this problem before,I can do it again! I know my triggers,and I have to stay away from that! Anywhoooo,that’s about it for me! Hope everyone has a great weekend.


Gettin back on track July 6, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — unskinnygirl @ 11:49 am

So this week has gone pretty well with the eating. It usually does go well. I’m determined to be disciplined this weekend. I lost 2 of the 3 pounds I gained over the I’m feeling alright with that. Now I just need to get under 200 pounds. Seems crazy that I started this journey at 280 pounds and being under 200 is in my sights. 6 pounds to go! Now,the key is to smarten up. Go back to the basics,and stop purging. Which I have done pretty well with this week. I think I only did it twice. This is a victory. When I started WW I completely stopped doing it for months. And I lost the most weight at that time. So….. I need to follow the same rules I set for myself in the beginning. I can do this and get out of this slump I’m in.!


Someone kick me in the pants! July 4, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — unskinnygirl @ 6:12 pm

So….. Since I’ve been slacking I have gained 3 pounds,yup….. 208. When I stepped on the scale after family cabin weekend,the scale read 213! Holy crap! Thankfully that went down to 208 by the next day,and has stayed there. Why WHY????????? Do I do this. This is my biggest downslide since starting this all in September. I also think my downslide into purging again has caused this gain. Viscious cycle! Throwing up has never ever been productive…. EVER! It always leads me to weight gain not loss. It slows my metabolism,and when I do not throw up after having done so periodically,my body holds on to every single calorie and fat gram it can. If I know All this… Why do I still do it? I had to fight hard not to do it today.i have eaten exceptionally healthy today. Filled up on a ton of veggies today. But….. I’m full so I want to get rid of the food! Argh! I need to smarten up!


What is wrong with me? June 28, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — unskinnygirl @ 12:34 pm

I seriously have lost all motivation. I’m just 5 pounds away from being under 200 pounds,an I’ve totally stopped all motivation. I haven’t gained anything. But I haven’t lost anything either. I’ve been out in way to many situations where I am not in control of what is being made,therefore I don’t have control about what it is that I am putting in my mouth. Portion control…. Well,I used to have that will power,but it seems to have left me. This weekend is family cabin weekend. That is just an eat fest. I honestly think this pending weekend is what has caused my stand still. I’m anticipating not having control and over eating,so why try now,when I know I will just gain it back after this weekend. My goal is to start completely fresh next week. Hopefully I can jump start this weightloss again. And jump start my motivation.


Honesty June 22, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — unskinnygirl @ 9:56 am

So I feel I need to be honest right now. I’ve really been struggling with old eating disorder habits lately. When I first started WW it completely dissolved my purging issues. I’m thinking because I always ate until comfortable,not full. Well I have been sliding backwards a bit in the last month. I don’t throw up everyday. I don’t over eat everyday. But when I get that full feeling,my mind just can’t handle it. Whether that’s being full on a ton of veggies,or something crappy. It’s not what I eat,it’s how full I feel. Feeling full is the trigger. So I need to go back to the beginning and watch my portions,no matter if it’s healthy,or bad food. Like I said,it’s not a daily occurance. But certainly a weekly one. I’m not sure what has caused this backslide. Stress maybe? I dunno. I was doing so well,and thought I had beat that part of my life. But,apparently it can creep back. I KNOW logically that purging helps me nothing. Any weight I have ever lost in my entire life,has been from eating healthy. Puking does not give me any results at all. It never has. It just slows down my metabolism,and brings my weightloss to a halt. I need to trust the WW program,count points,and be mindful of how full I feel. It’s so crazy how I logically know all this stuff. But once that full feeling hits,all logic goes out the window. I need to stop! I will stop now! No more!


Good day folks June 21, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — unskinnygirl @ 11:59 am

Well I weighed in at 206 again today. Which is fine. I really haven’t eaten that great lately. Not sure how I’m still losing. I guess I never really eat BAD if I do it’s usually one meal and that’s it. I’m thinking once I hit mainitance this is how I will eat. One cheat meal a week. The rest of my meals relatively healthy. I wish I was maintaining right now. I’m tired of trying to lose constantly. I’m still motivated,don’t get me wrong. Especially since I am so close to the 100’s. That will probably take me a while though. This weekend there are all sorts of activities going on. And the weekend after that is family cabin weekend. Which consists of food all day long. Not healthy food. All bad for you food. And it’s all delicious. I guess I will just have to exercise portion control. If its hot and nice we will be swimming in the lake all day. So that at least burns calories. I honestly thought that summer would be easier to eat healthier than winter. Boy was I wrong!!!!!! The amount of bbq’s I have been to already are insane! I have a massive weakness for hot dogs and chips. Especially chips. It’s my biggest weakness! Oh well. I’m still slowly losing. So whatever I’m doing is working!
