Recommitting.

Monday, June 23, 2014

With planning my wedding and an erratic work schedule, I managed to put on 10 pounds since I last posted. Once the wedding was over and I got on the scale and saw it, I was depressed. I'm happy to say that today I have committed to finishing this out, and made myself a goal of 180 pounds by Christmas. I'll be doing whatever I can to make sure I don't slip again. With the wedding behind me, I have more time to focus on the weight loss.

  


Just a little update.

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

Things are going well. I have been really busy working and planning my wedding, so I haven't had much time to update my progress.

I am still losing weight. It has been pretty slow weight loss, but it's staying off and that's what's important. People are starting to frequently comment on it, and it's kind of making me feel uncomfortable. Somewhat like I wasn't a good person before, but now that I'm thinner, I matter? I dunno. I think I'm just over analyzing their comments.

I hope that the rest of you are doing well. I really don't have much to say I guess.

    Good job Lane! I'm so proud of you. I am also doing something similar by going the slow route when it comes to weight loss.

I also understand what it means that people would notice you more now that you are getting more slim. It does hurt, when it comes off in a semi-positive/negative sense.

I hope you are okay. Perhaps it's best to try not to think of it too much.

Hug!

    Don't worry about what others say. If you are happy and feel good then none of that matters. It is nice to have people compliment the weight loss, but the weight does not define who we are. Be Happy, concentrate on your wedding, keep doing what you're doing.....Best wishes and emoticon

Hello New Year.

Sunday, January 26, 2014

I've only been losing about 2 pounds a month. I'm not happy about it, but at least I'm not gaining.

My boss has taken a 6 week medical leave to have surgery. She put me in charge, so I get her hours, her pay, her schedule. Her shifts start a 5:45am, and I'm used to coming in at noon. Needless to say,my sleep and food have both been thrown off. When I'm tired I mindlessly eat. It's been a real struggle. I think I'm finally building a routine that won't derail my progress. I'll update again when I hit the 200 pound mark.

  


What Happened?

Monday, December 02, 2013

I've been slipping back into old habits recently. I had to kick myself in the butt to keep it in check. I have been basically eating whatever I want for the past 2 weeks. I'd fluctuate between 5 pounds in either direction, not caring one bit about it. My drive was completely lost. I managed to keep myself in check yesterday, and today is going well so far.

Planning my food a day ahead of time has worked wonders. I need to remember that when I feel I'm slipping.

I'm not going to make my Christmas goal of 200 pounds, but I feel I might make it to 210. I'm going to try as hard as I can.

    You'll make it! Two weeks is not much. Glad you're back on track.

    We must have all jumped on the same boat. LOL I do just enough to not gain all my weight back. The good news is, today is new and you are right, planning is key to getting back on track. Perhaps we can all get off this boat and keep pushing !!!

    I know you can do it, Sissy! Hang in there!

I'm ashamed to say that I've gone completely off the wagon for about two months now. I'm terribly ashamed of myself and feel gross all the time... so much so that I' fed up and ready to feel good and healthy again!

I bet you and I are near the same weight now. Maybe if we try to pace ourselves, we can do this together! (I'll let you know when I finally get the guts to get back on the scale and see how high I've climbed).

60 Pounds Gone!

Sunday, October 20, 2013

I have officially lost 60 pounds since I started using SparkPeople to lose weight. I never thought that I would get here, but here I am. Customers at work and people that I rarely see are starting to mention it now.

The funny thing is that I don't really see any difference. I notice when clothes get bigger, but I don't see a difference in the mirror. Oh well. I'm still pleased with my progress.

I wanted to be 215 by Halloween, but I'll probably make it to 219 at best. That's okay. Losing something is better than gaining.

    OH my goodness sissy, you are doing so great! Haha I still don't notice a difference, either, but you should be pleased anyway, because it's definitely there! Sometimes the best changes have nothing to do with your literal body. I can't wait to see you and marvel at all the progress you have made!
