This morning, February 22, 2012, I weighed in at:
136.2 pounds (146.2 in March of ‘10)
29.9% body fat (33% in March of ‘10)
I have finally bid adieu 10 pounds!
And some body fat to go along with ‘em!
Between cutting out wheat, dairy, and slowly eliminating other things that are no good for me (and my lovely blood), I am now able to mark this off! After almost 2 years!!!
I really think each body is different, and each body needs different nutrition, exercise, and supplementation. I’ve always had a difficult time believing the “Oh, just work out religiously, eat healthy food, and you’ll lose all the weight!” comment. I’ve heard it from friends, doctors, strangers I’ve chatted with, read it on websites, and so on and so forth. I’m sticking to what is showing results!
I am looking forward to saying farewell to more pesky pounds and inches, and feeling lighter and healthier. I have a full wardrobe boxed-up in my closet for 2 different sizes under where I’m at. It’ll be fun to bring those “small” items out again, and see what I can find.
March of 2010: 146.2 pounds, 33% body fat
February 17, 2012 (today): 137.8 pounds, 30.8% body fat
I have been eating less and less wheat and dairy over the last six months. I think that is really helping to finally bring that damn number down. I weigh myself everyday so that I can keep track easily.
The last few weeks, while I’ve been using The Blood Type Diet, I was finally able to get under 138 lbs. Seeing 137.8 on the scale this morning made me very giddy. A little over a pound to go until I can cross this off.
Ild like to start working out, but I’m afraid to, as I usually gain weight when I do. I haven’t worked out in months! I think I’m just going to keep up with changing my food, and see where I get to next.
My goal weight is 120 pounds. I’ll get there.
I have the hardest time in losing weight! I can workout for weeks on end, and eat nothing but organic, lean, and good-for-you food, and I freaking gain pounds! It is quite frustrating.
The last few months, my family and I have been going to an all-you-can-eat buffet for breakfast once a week, have had numerous outings at fast-food joints, I have been stressed to no end, and I also haven’t been working out….BUUUUT….I have lost 4 pounds in the last couple of weeks! Explain that crazy to me please!
I was thinking about just deleting this goal and replacing it with “BE HEALTHY” or something like that to kinda make a catch-all goal of diet, weight-loss and general well_being, but in looking back from when I started this gaol back in March of 2010; I weighed in at 146.2 lbs and 33% body fat. Today, I had my first reading of 138 POUNDS!!!!! 2 more lbs, and I can COMPLETE! this goal.
So, I am going to try to keep up whatever it is I am currently doing (and not doing) to lose 2 more pounds. :)
I went 50% off thrift store shopping the other day, and really wanted a new-ish pair of jeans. The jeans weren’t really sized, so I just started browsing the racks. I found a nice pair of dark-wash denim…but the tag read: size 8. I thought, “haha, yeah right!” The last time I wore jeans (probably spring), I was wearing size 11, and a snug 11, at that. I held them up to me, and entertained the idea that they may fit. I then proceeded to grab five more jeans in 8! Waited, waited, and waited some more to try them on, and to my absolute surprise…THEY FIT!!! Woohoooo!!!!! I loved them all, besides the one odd ball I put back. I don’t know how I got down to an 8. I guess during summer, my size 11 shorts have been loose on me. I haven’t lost much weight, according to my scale. Regardless, I’m a new size 8! I’m a happy girl!
Onwards to my size 5 jeans just sitting…waiting…in my closet!
My body, although it seemed to be changing, is the same as it was on February 25th (almost FOUR months ago!). This makes me extrememly sad, as I have been working out and eating just fine 97% of the time. I have my one “cheat” day a week, but that wouldn’t impede on my weight-loss progress.
There has to be something wrong with me! I’m just starting my sixth week of the Couch to 5K running plan and I’ve been doing the two-hundred sit-ups challenge, as well. I don’t eat after 7pm. I drink water all day. And I actually cook my meals. Nothing has changed in four months! I swear my clothes are fitting better but it must be just my imagination. @.c
I’ve done some research on the HCG Diet Program and my mom and I are both quite interested http://www.hcgdiet.com/product.html It’s really intriguing and it’s been featured on the Dr. Oz Show…I’d trust him with my health anyday! He’s amazing!
My supply would only be about $80 compared to my mom’s supply at $250 (I think that’s right). So she had the idea to get mine first to see if it would show the results being raved about everywhere, before she orders her supply. We shall see what happens. This weight saga is ridiculous! I could probably starve myself and I’d end up obese. Ack! How frustrating! What’s the point of working out if nothing’s changing? Yes, I’m keeping healthy, internally (I hope), but it’s not helping anywhere else!
and in the time since then, I really haven’t been taking this goal as seriously as I was wanting to when I added it. I’ve lost (to this very day) a whopping total of 4.8 pounds (better than nothing and better than gaining 4.8 lbs). Hey, I’m about halfway there ;)
This last year was a tough one for me in all aspects of my life. I worked out in spurts when I was feeling well and then I’d almost immediately get sick, and I can’t workout when I feel that lousy. I now understand why I was getting sick all the time and now that my tonsils are gone, I’ve been feeling pretty dang good.
I was going to start back with working out the month after surgery, but didn’t because of all the stress I was going through with my Son’s school and what not…and then we moved…so now I feel adjusted…I have to feel well to have a good mind frame for kicking some ass and keeping at it.
My kiddo’s therapy is going well, school is fun again for him, I’m happily in my new home, and feeling well more often, than not. I want to jog so badly but I’m not as hard-core as these runners out in negative-degree weather (with their dogs), all layered-up and fighting the elements! That’s insane! I have been shovelling, A LOT, though! 405 calories burned an hour at a moderate pace. I should ‘power shovel’ hehe. This MN winter has been sent as a gift from God to tell me to get a damn move on (maybe without the ‘damn’).
I’m going to get on this goal and feel even better!!!
2011 is going to be a great year!!!
November 24, 2010:
142.4 lbs. 31.0% body fat.
I was told by my doctor that having so many problems with my tonsils could be making it harder to lose weight, because my body was too busy fighting off infection in my throat to fight off fat. Which would explain a lot seeing as how I exercise regularly and eat fairly well! I mean, I have my bad food days, but I recover nicely :)
I had my sugery to remove my tonsils and adenoids on 9/30/10.
I’ve been on a soft food diet, not being able to eat much, and Ive been drinking high amounts of fluid…I’ve lost 9 ponds in the last 15 days! I hope when I get back to eating normally again, I can keep my weight going down even further!!!
It should be easier without my body messing with me.
Here’s hoping and praying!!! :)
I want to keep track on 43 every month…here I go.

C= C= C= C= C= C=
Lose 10 pounds or 10% body fat….whichever comes first.
The number on the scale just doesn’t say the whole truth when it comes to total weight loss. All I know is my scale doesn’t move but my jeans are getting loose on me. I could stay my number weight until my body fat percentage goes down enough and I’ve gained more muscle that it starts burning the number weight down. UGH. Too much thinking involved in weight loss! I want a new body…too bad I can’t just order one! Hehehe ; )
Why did God make our bodies so freakin’ tempormental all the time?
