Almost There!!!!!!!!

Thursday, November 03, 2011

Yesterdays weight 179, goal weight = 178. 91 lost, 1 little one to go. Amazed myself on Tuesday, decided to go get the new jeans I had been promising myself once I had made goal (ok ok a little early I know emoticon ). When I started this journey, I was a waist size 44, I bought waist size 34!!!!!!!!!!! That is the same waist I had when I was in my 20's 3 decades ago, that is amazing. Current BMI of 25 which is the start of overweight, better than the obese I was, but not the "normal" I set out for.

Maintenance is going to be a whole different animal I reckon, looking forward to that challenge. emoticon

find foods that work with your chemistry. i created this meal on my own. i can't seem to loose weight if i eat any grain products. so one day i experimented.

i make this mixture for breakfast , lunch and dinner. i have lost 32 pounds in 23 weeks. i cook

4 large portabella mushrooms sliced, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, 4 large onions sliced, 2 large green peppers, 3 cans green beans, 1 can rutabaga and 5 sliced chicken sausages.

it makes enough for at least 4 days, three meals a day. total cost is 12 dollars. i buy the mushrooms and chicken at sams club. sounds crazy but it taste good and most importantly it's working. i'm not hungry . if i feel the urge to cheat i go get a fork full of my mixture. i chew very slowly as to enjoy my meal.

i have added a small banana and grapes for my snacks and to be a fix for my sweet tooth.

you can add other foods into your menu. just know what works with your body chemistry.

I have gone from 198 to 166 pounds. i can now fit into a size 14 comfortably. i feel so much better. think of carrying a 2 year old around your waist every minute of every day. no i am not done. on the obese chart i have gone from being obese to just plain fat. my goal is to drop another 22 pounds. then i will be happy, healthy and never allow myself to get in this condition again.

one might say eating the same food every day would get boring. not true. when you look in the mirror and can see the difference it's worth it.

10/7 183
10/9 184.4

Hopefully, posting this crap will motivate my dumb a@$. :-)


Success and Struggles

Wednesday, October 12, 2011

All in all, pretty successful I reckon. High weight of 270, current weight 184. Target is 178, have been "trying" to lose the last 10 pounds for 2 months now, lose 2, gain 3 back, lose 3, gain 2 back and on and on. I keep sabotaging myself, I eat great all day and then from 10 till midnight I'll eat blocks of cheese, 3-6 beers, cookies etc. Not every night but 2-3 times a week, enough to sabotage me for sure. I think the biggest reason is I don't know what I will do once I reach my goal of 178, I have invested so heavily in my days of weight loss and stroke recovery and once I hit the weight loss target, I'll have to find something else and I don't have a clue. Hoping writing this out shames me enough to get it done, tired of the struggle.

  Wow, congrats, you have worked hard to get closer to your goal! I stopped late snacking when I simply didn't allow myself to buy those to my house. Maybe you will find a new hobby or interests once you've reached your goal. But once again, well done, I'm sure you'll get rid of those last pounds too!
