I’m 2.6 lbs away from achieving this goal! I’m so excited. Every little bit of weight I lose, puts me closer to completing this goal.
I can’t believe that I’m 3.4 lbs away from losing 60 lbs, and achieving this goal! It’s taken me nearly 20 months to get to this point, but it’s worth it, even though it’s taken a long time. I’m so happy! :-)
It has been a little over 2 years since I worked on this goal, but now I am at the point in my life where I can finally re-open this goal, and work on it.
Just to re-cap what has happened since my last entry;
I had a baby, gained a lot of weight (despite my efforts not to gain much weight), lost most of the weight gained during my pregnancy, and am now working on losing weight again.
I have lost 55 lbs since having my baby so that means I have 5 lbs until I reach 60 lbs lost. Once I reach the 60 lbs lost, I still have another 40-45 lbs to go.
I will document the remaining 5 lbs to reach 60 lbs here, and record the entries for the last 40-45 lbs elsewhere.
This is a goal that I am determined to complete!
I can do it!
I have lost 20 lbs this year! I need to focus on this accomplishment, and remember how hard I worked to get this weight off. Basically, I reached 1/3 of my goal so in my mind that’s not bad… could have been better, but c’est la vie!
I’m putting this goal on hold now… but will definately be re-visiting this goal once again in the future.
The scale is still NOT going down, but at least I have a few benchmark things to measure some sort of progress. I have lost 2” from my waist, and almost 1.5” from my hips. I have heard that 35” is a healthy circumference for a waist so it makes me happy that my waist circumference is now in a healthy range. I just need to get my BMI in a healthy range.
I’m still trying to determine if I’ve actually lost any weight since I stopped eating any deep-fried foods.
I mean, my body is definately changing shape, but the scale isn’t really reflecting these changes. My pants are getting baggy so something is changing, but the scale is stubborn as ever.
I think that I might be losing ‘fat’ off my body mass, which is exactly the kind of weight loss that I’m after. Maybe the physical part is changing shape because the fat is disappearing, but the scale isn’t moving because it’s the lean body mass that is staying on. I don’t know if this makes sense; only time will tell.
Someone once told me a good analogy for the difference between fat weight, and muscle weight. Think of fat like a popped bag of popcorn, in that, it takes up a lot of space whereas an unpopped bag of popcorn represents the lean muscle mass. They both weigh the same. I’ve got the visual in my mind, and it makes sense, but I’m not sure about the fat vs. muscle being the same weight. I don’t know if I agree with it. I always thought that muscle weighs more than fat.
In any case, I’m definately going to continue with my goal of not eating deep-fried foods, because it’s doing some great reductions in my hips, thighs, waist, and butt.
I took a bunch of XL tops to try on, and it turns out that I’m now fitting medium shirts! I’m so happy… now if I could only do the same for the bottom half! LOL.
I learned an interesting thing today. I was buying some jeans for my husband, and couldn’t remember the jean size. I was told that men typical have the same size shoulders as they do waist size. For example, men’s medium size tops run about 30 to 32” (shoulder width) so if the medium fits then you should buy 30 to 32” jeans. Too bad that it doesn’t work like this for women.
I’m so excited that I can finally get into my cords… even if it’s stil a bit tight I’m happy about this. I bought these cords in November or December 2006, and wasn’t able to fit into them when I first bought them. I couldn’t try them on when I bought them, but when I got them home I realized that they didn’t fit. I thought about returning them, but then decided to keep them, because I want to lose the weight to fit into them.
I’ve been thinking about my goals, and how to get motivated, and discovered that maybe I should start trying on things that are too tight, to gauge my progress instead of solely relying on my scale for progress indicators.
I was planning on trying on these cords everyday as motivation, but now that I can get them on, and actually sit down in them, I’m going to try to wear them more often until my body totally fits into them, and I can actually wear them out in public.
I’m so happy! (Even if the scale isn’t going down, at least I have a back-up plan for measuring progress).
I want to fit into these cords, and be able to wear them out in public by the end of May.
I’m starting to notice some changes in my hips, thighs, and waist. I think that the following things have helped me to lose weight in these areas, and tone the muscles:
1. Going to step aerobics classes (only have gone to 3 classes so far);
2. drinking 2 L of water everyday;
3. Doing squats (I had been doing 50 at a time);
4. Totally eliminating deep-fried foods from my diet;
5. Totally eliminating pop/ soda from my diet;
6. Reducing the amount of sugary drinks from my diet;
7. Going for acupuncture treatments;
8. Walking at least 30 minutes about 3 times a week;
9. Keeping a food journal;
10. Trying not to snack or graze between meals.
The hips, and thighs have always been difficult areas to lose weight or to tone the muscles. I’m so happy that there is finally some change in these areas that it’s enough motivation to keep trying to lose the weight!
I haven’t been weighing myself everyday so I’m not sure where my weight loss is at the moment. I think that it’s fluctuating a bit. I really need to get into a regular exercise schedule.
