Finally trying to get back on the healthy train since college has begun. Looked at my last weigh in to see it was OCTOBER 27TH and was in udder shock and horror. How could I have let myself go for THAT long???
So after I finished my workout for the day I decided to do a weigh-in and measure check. Along with a picture comparison like I was over the summer. Although I have regressed a little in the last 2 months (that have been filled with no workouts and a lot of junk food) I am surprised to say that I was expecting much worse results.
From this side view you can see that I have lost some of my toning. The first picture is from June 26th, 2013. The second picture is from July 27th, 2013 and the third picture is from today. These dates are the same with the next picture...
And although from the side one can see I have become a bit more "flabby" from the front the change isn't nearly as bad. Perhaps, I even look slightly better (although my eyes may just be seeing what I want to see).
Well back to the healthy grind I go.
ANY FEEDBACK OR SUGGESTIONS FELLOW WEIGHT LOSS-ERS?
Been a long time since I posted here...
I've been struggling with keeping up with working out and eating healthy now that the school year has began again and I am back to eating campus food for all 3 meals.
However, even though I haven't lost any weight this past month, but I haven't gained any either.
I've found a new love for cucumber and lemon water. It taste delicious, is healthier than pop or juice and even helps curbs the appetite!
Well these last two weeks have been absolutely terrible for me. Now that I am done with my challenge, I have been having to push myself to work out instead of having the incentive of the group. Last week i worked out 4 of the 5 days, but this week I only worked out 2. Next week I will be on vacation so that will make it harder too!
Hoping I can stay on track while on vacation and then when I get back its time to KICK IT BACK IN GEAR!
So I finished my first month of SparkPeople!
I started at 187, and am now down to 180. I haven't taken my changed measurements yet, but I will be doing that soon to see the change there.
Although I don't see it when I look in the mirror, in picture I can already see the change!
So I finally decided what I am going to do when I hit my goal weight of 140!
Everyone says to have some way of rewarding yourself for getting down to your goal weight (or measurement, which I might have those too but I haven't figured them out yet!) I have two ideas..
1.)I have always wanted a belly ring, but thought that I didn't have the body type for it, SO, when I get to my goal weight I will get my belly ring I have wanted :)
2.)My other option is to treat myself and get my third tattoo. I want to get the day my grandmother passed away tattooed on my shoulder in roman numerals. But this one has less to do with my self-conciousness and more to do with financial reasons...
But now I have something to look forward to besides the new love for my body :)
The first tattoo I got was a heart with an infinity sign on my ankle that I got matching with my sister, a couple months later my mom got it on top of her foot!
The second one I got (i got the same day with my sister) is FIGHTER on my wrist after battling many years of depression and self-harm
