My Name is Michelle, and I'm Addicted to Bread

Tuesday, October 14, 2014

I lo0oooove bread!

Pasta, rice, cereal, biscuits, crackers, waffles and so many more.

I just realized this now when I was finishing up my dinner (cooked spinach in balsamic vinegar and some Parmesan cheese on top, YUM) that I hadn't included any bread in my meal and that would just not do!

So I had a slice of white bread with just a little bit of butter. I had plenty of room left for a few extra calories after tracking all of my food for the day.

It was so delicious. I immediately wanted more, but I turned around and walked out of the kitchen instead.

I get proud of myself when I do something like that. Tomorrow I planned on treating myself to a few meals out. Its my day off, and I want to spend it walking/ jogging through a local neighborhood with some great restaurants I work by.

I'm going to have a caprese panini with a side salad for lunch, then join my girlfriend in some sushi for dinner. I always like sushi because I can eat a ton of it and the calories are fairly low.

Tomorrow should be nice :)

    Good Blog! As long as you are tracking and keeping record of the amount of calories you are eating, bread is not a bad thing! :) Spark Cheers! :)

Re-Start with a FitBit!

Monday, October 13, 2014

My coworkers and I have been obsessed with the idea of a FitBit for awhile now. We tried to win them in a store wide contest but weren't able to. A few weeks ago, we discovered that through our company points program, we could get them for free if we had enough points racked up!

So 5 of us each got a FitBit.

It has been hilarious to see us all compete to get the most steps in. If we have slow time at work, we all pace around the store or do jumping jacks in place to catch up. So far it has been very successful.

Now I want to get back to business. I have successfully maintained my 40 pound weight loss for a few months without losing but without gaining either. Time to start losing again.

I re-vamped my goals a little bit. My next 40 pound goal is set over a longer period of time. If I keep up with it, I will have lost everything I want to lose by April. However, Im trying not to stress out about it this time. I lose it when I lose it. I know I will have good and bad weeks. I have to keep consistent. Thats the most important.

Good luck to everyone!

Why I'm Choosing Surgery

Friday, August 29, 2014

I have lost 40 pounds so far. I am so proud of what I have accomplished. I have more energy, my clothes look better, I am more confident, and I went down two whole sizes in my work uniform.

But my arms are still flabby.

If you have read any of my past blogs, you know that my arms are the thing I am most insecure about. I still find myself not being able to wear certain shirts because my arms don't fit in them, and I won't wear a tank top because of how bad they look.

However, I recently decided that sometime within the next year, I will take the proper steps toward getting brachioplasty, in other words, an arm lift.

They will basically just chop off all the droopy stuff. Thats all I want. I want to be able to wear tank tops without being embarrassed. Think how many more great clothes I will be able to wear! emoticon

I know it will be expensive, but it is something I'm willing to go into some debt for. There may be some scarring, but the scars will be so much more worth it. Plus, I want some tattoos on my arms anyways, who will even see the scars?

I am so excited to have made this decision. Hopefully I will find myself in a place to be able to go through with it.

BTW- Had a great past few days. Slowly but surely getting more weight off. Just a pound away from being at the halfway mark!

    It doesn't matter what anyone else thinks! If it is something that you want for yourself and it is not dangerous to your health, then GO FOR IT!! It's your body and you should love it! I wish you all the best!

I Got Positoovity

Wednesday, August 13, 2014

I'm feeling very positive the past few days.

I cut out weigh-ins for the time being. I have no need to weigh myself right now, I am doing fine, gaining momentum, feeling like things are getting better.

My motivation is up, I keep what I am eating in the back of my thoughts through the day. I'm a little worried about tomorrow because I'm going over a friend's house to visit. She is pregnant and bound to have lots of snacks. I guess this will be a test for will power.

Goodnight for now Sparkers
