Early July 2013- Starting Over





Truth. Definitely something I need to work on.





March 2010- Right before I started to lose weight. The photo was a bit of a shock, to be honest.



I have 9 pics in my gallery

Ver's Progress

Hey, I'm Cris. I'm generally known online as Ver, but I'll answer to either one. :) I'm 30 years old and looking to lose quite a bit of weight. I joined Spark... a long time ago, but didn't really use it like I'd planned (*cough* several times *cough*), but in 2010 finally got with the program and lost 50 pounds.

Hey, I'm Cris. I'm generally known online as Ver, but I'll answer to either one. :) I'm 30 years old and looking to lose quite a bit of weight. I joined Spark... a long time ago, but didn't really use it like I'd planned (*cough* several times *cough*), but in 2010 finally got with the program and lost 50 pounds. It's... well, I've since gone back to school and put most of it back on, unfortunately. I'm hoping to get to 120 pounds, which is at the very high end of my healthy weight range for my height because I'm practically a midget... but we'll see how I feel when I get there. If I'm good with the way I look, great, if not... I'll keep going until I am. :D

*~*~*~*~*~*~*

My Rewards:
I've read that rewarding yourself for weight loss can be counterproductive, and I did honestly evaluate my reward system here after I read that. However, I decided to keep this in place. Why? There's nothing on this list that's a particularly strong incentive. They're things I want, yes (or in the case of clothes shopping, something of practicality)- that's why they're rewards. But it's nothing that I have to have ZOMGRIGHTNOW- they can wait. So the rewards aren't the reason I'm losing weight. It's just that... I always feel guilty for spending money like this, so the weight points give me "permission" to make the purchases, so to speak. It makes me feel less guilty because I've "earned" it. I know I've gone on a while here, but that's my take on the rewards system.
200: New video game (TBD)
180: Tiny Toons part 2 on DVD!
160: Kindle :3
140: Death Note on DVD!
120: PSP plus 1 or 2 games?
Final Goal Weight, whatever that may be: Big clothes shopping trip!

*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Basic Stats (For comparison later):
At new starting... 5/18/14
BMI: 45.1 (I'm 4'11, that's why this is so high. XD)
Dress size: 2X, sometimes a 3X depending
Pants size: 18/20, depending.
Bra size: Unsure, needs measuring. At my biggest I was a 42F. Those don't really fit properly, but neither do the 40DDD's I've been wearing for some time now. The 42F is close enough, anyway.
Shoe size: Varies greatly depending on the shoe- can go anywhere from 5 to 7 1/2. I have a lot of issues with shoes because my feet are little but wide.

*~*~*~*~*~*~*

I've found that weekly check-ins are a more accurate view of weight loss, as opposed to daily weigh-ins... so I'm doing that here. The weekly BMI/weight check to make sure I'm on the right track! ^^ It serves as a bit of a reality check when the scale is going the wrong way.

New Start, 5/18: 223.5 pounds- 45.1 BMI
Week 1, 5/25: 221.8 pounds- 44.8 BMI (Lost 1.7 pounds)
Week 2, 6/1: 222.4 pounds- 44.9 BMI (Gained .6 pounds)
Week 3, 6/8: 222 pounds- 44.8 BMI (Lost .4 pounds)
Week 4, 6/15:
Week 5, 6/22:
Week 6, 6/29:

My Goals:
Currently working toward: 200 pounds, yosh! *fistpumps*

Replace soda with water and then some. Doing this.

I need to stop stress eating and buckle down on my food intake.

I need to stop letting small fluctuations in weight bother me. I have been known to gain up to 5 pounds some months during PMS and then it disappears again- I really, really need to not freak when this happens.

I need to not slack off, especially on working out and drinking enough water. "I don't feel like it" is not an excuse.

My Program:
I'm a broke college student, which doesn't leave a lot of money left over for foodstuffs (and we all know healthy food is more expensive than the garbage), so for right now I'm going to be concentrating on things like drinking more water, cutting soda out, that sort of thing. I'm doing switch outs like wheat bread for white, grilled chicken instead of fried, etc. I'm not technically counting calories because I can't stand doing that stuff, but I'm trying to cut down on the number of calories I consume in a day, and I'm keeping a rough estimate going in my head of how many calories I've had. It's worked for me in the past, so why mess with what works, I guess.

*If you do contact me outside of Spark, please let me know that you came from here, just so I know why you're talking to me and how you found me. I can get a little paranoid about things sometimes. XD

Other Information:
I love books, video games, scrapbooking, photography, writing, and anime, and to be honest most of my free time is spent on those things.
