No longer obese!!

leave a comment »

I will admit, my weight loss has been slow. But, I’ve still lost 40 pounds.

My current weight is 197. To me this is very exciting becuase I can’t remember the last time I was at this weight, or I guess I do but not since some crazy year like 2002.

The exciting news for me is my BMI is 29.8. I am now considered to be overweight! I’m not longer considered to be obese! I’m excited because it was a small goal I was looking towards and I made it!

A new season of The Biggest Loser has started. I was really into this show when it first started, but haven’t watched in few seasons. I’m excited to watch this season, I’m also hoping it will help keep me extra motivated this fall/winter. I’ve watched the fisrt episode already, and plan to watch the second this weekend. There are 2 things I dislike about the show though… and they are that it gives people the idea that losing 15 pounds a week is where its at and all the crazy yelling Jillian does.

As hard as losing weight is and can be, it is 110% worth it. I feel fantastic! I can walk 6 miles straight. I can wear cuter clothes. People flirt with me more. I’m more flexible. I can squeeze into smaller places. I weigh almost 50lbs less than my spousual unit. I’m probably adding years to my life. It may cost $40 a month to do Weight Watchers but I’m sticking to this for life.. the rest of it.

Back under 2

leave a comment »

So I was recently under 200lbs. Boy was a stoked!

But, I was almost to close and kind of relaxed a bit. It was insanely hot, I had 2 ear infections in 2 weeks and then went on vacation

I went on vacation. I drank wine and beer. I ate bread. I had cheese burgers. I ate desserts. I didn’t work out for a month.

I hoped on the scale after all of this and it said 202.6. Yup, I had gained about 4 pounds in a month. Eeep. I’ve been to 2 Weight Watchers meetings since I came home on the 14th.

Back to reality… I’m eating my normal everyday fare and walking my 2.5 miles about every other day, pushing myself twice this week to do 5 miles.

As of this moment in time I am back at 199.6.

This feels good and I’m staying back on track. I can’t wait to be at 195, 5 pounds away from 200 will make me feel safer.

Smallest gain possible… how is that possible?

leave a comment »

So.

Last week we ate everything in sight. Bread. A lot of alcohol one night. At least 5 or so pieces of cheesecake over the weekend, (I had to try all 4 of the flavors, no?). We didn’t exercise a drop. We went to 2 gatherings in 2 days and came home with a sore back from so much sitting. Yep, we’re on Weight Watchers but who knew?! We count points, no way?! Last week, after using up all of my extra weekly points in something like 2 days if not less… I decided I’d take the week off and own up to what the scale said.

I was expecting a big weight gain, something like 2 or 3 pounds. I made it under 200 at the end of June and was pretty stoked about it… but I also kept in mind that I had been sick a week or so prior and not had any sort of appetite for 3 days as well.

So yesterday I got all ready to go to my weigh in… and I stepped on the scale. It said 199.4.

Um, yeah, I ate like a cow and I only gained .2 pounds? I ate all that cheese cake and only gained a tenth of a pound? How can that be?! And that was at 4:30p, after I had eatten a breakfast and some sort of lunch stuff. But, my leader said I might not have a significant gain this week but, it could show up next week instead.

We’re going to try our hardest to make sure that that doesn’t happen.

It maybe hot, but I don’t want to see your flab.

So it has been hot in these parts, or I guess Seattle…

And I’ve seen so many overly, over weight people in little amounts of clothing on.

The truth is, it grosses me out.

Yeah, okay wait..

Yes, I weigh 200 pounds. And at one point in time I weighed 58 pounds more.

But, I don’t leave the house with my gut, ass or tits hanging out all over the place.  I try to wear clothing that fits properly. I make sure you can’t see my underware or bra.  If it is 90° and you happen to see my underware or bra, you must be sitting next to me on my back porch, in my basement, or in my bedroom.

It may be hot but have some class.

But this also makes me want to run up to people and tell them “Weight Watchers will set you free!!” Cut the shit and try something that really works!

Maybe some people are really content being fat and looking like hell, but I’m not one of them.

Weight loss, rethought.

leave a comment »

So.

I’ve been doing Weight Watchers since May. I did okay at first. I lost my 10%. Then I put back on some weight. I’ve been losing and gaining the same 5 or so pounds for a while.

Since I’ve joined, I’ve pretty much done everything online. I’ve been to 2 meetings. I’m not a “group” person.

I’m giving in. I’m not losing weight like I’d like to. I’m going to start going to meetings.  Maybe going to meetings will help, or maybe it will make me want to pull my hair out. Either way, I’m hoping that I’ll have better results.

Here’s to restarting?

Peace, I love the word peace.

with 2 comments

I’m having one of those moments. The one that goes something like “aaahh, I’m at peace with myself.”

I had my annual review at work last week. All I can say is “hell yes!” Basically my boss said I’m a great staff member with the most cross training in our store. She also wants to see me be more confidant in what I know. Hey, I can totally do that! She also is really pushing me to learn more about beer and wine. Hey, I’m getting my pouring license today! Oh, and I got the whole talk less to distract other staff members less, again. Even thought I’m professionally trained as a massage therapist, I love that I’m working where I’m working. I think if anyone will help me get ahead in the company, it will be my current boss. I’m very happy that she is at my location and I hope she stays. I also feel pretty awesome that I can’t really think of anything bad to say about the company I work for, even after almost 7 years. I love what we do, stand for, and how much we are involved in the communities we are in.

I also feel like I have my money under control. Getting my tax return helped with this. I paid extra on my credit cards. I’m using Microsoft money to help me organize my bills. I finally have just one student loan to pay off, I’ve already paid off three.

My goal for the next few months is to stay on track with Weight Watchers and not lose and gain the same 5 pounds over and over. I’m so close to being under 200. I haven’t been under 200 since 2002 or late 2001. I’m finally back to where I can say, I gained a crap load of weight on Paxil but I’ve lost 50lb of it. I feel like my goal of 155 is so far off, but I’m very “eyes on the prize” right now. I’m going to Napa this summer and I want to wear little sun dresses!! I’m thinking about getting a tattoo of my highest weight on my ribcage as a reminder of how far I’m come and where I never want to go back to.

I also want to start looking more polished. I feel that being fatter has always given me an excuse to not look good, things never fit right! (as I say this I’m lounging in sweats and a Hanes tee) I actually know a thing or two about style, I just have been larger and poorer than I am at the moment. I’ve already invested in a beautiful pair of boots. (boots first because I’ll always be a size 9, no matter how big my ass is) I’m ready to invest in staples, and staples are where its at! Invest in the classic pieces that will look great in 5 years. And with the way the economy is going, why would you want to invest in trendy anything?

And lastly, I can’t wait for Kevin and I to be able to buy a house. I love the little house we are in now. We both have offices. We don’t have to commute to work. We have a yard with lots of potential. I really hope we can buy this house.

Planning for the new one.

leave a comment »

Oh silly New Year’s resolutions. I don’t make them… but I do try to have ideas on what I want to achieve for the following year. But since I spent New Year’s day drinking, and the following day hung over, and worked all weekend… we have ended up at January 5th. By the way, happy Monday.

  • Back on WW. All those little things that have crept back into my diet? You’re g0ne. I CAN lose 50 pounds this year.
  • Do more 5ks. My plan is to run one sometime by the end of the year.
  • Take more interest in other people. I know I’m very self oriented.
  • Clean up! I am trying really hard not to be a slob. It takes work, thought and effort for me.
  • Drink wine, taste it, and take notes. This is mainly for work. I’m trying to move into something different. I need something that has new and fresh information. Also, enjoying wine is nicer than just chugging it.
  • Plan. I need to be better at planning dinners, bills, money, and all things.
  • Spend less, but buy nicer. I need to not buy coffees, magazines and meals when I can do all of it myself. The less I spend on little stuff, the more I can spend on nicer clothes, furniture and trips. Oh, and buy our house.
  • Learn. I want to learn about gardening, running, crafts, canning, composting, house repairs, design, beer and wine, and money.
  • Relax. I have been a little stressed the past few months. I need to chill out a bit.

So, that pretty much sums it up. Happy 2009! Obama becomes President in 15 days, I’m excited to see what the future might and might not look like.

XOXOX
