I ate exactly what an intelligent diabetic person eats, lots of veggies and fruit and healthy protein.
Then at 10:00 PM my daughter and her bf decided to go to the donut store.
Dead in the water. I ate 3 chocolate covered ones and I don’t even feel guilty. They were THAT good. 2 weeks ago
If I write this goal it means I really have to do it. I have gained 30 pounds in 6 months!!!! That is beyond unhealthy. I fell crazy in love. And he eats nonstop. And has no perception that there is a thing called healthy eating. Lol. Neither of us do. So about 4 or 5 days ago I started his P90X Lean program and I’m also eating based on the 6 week body makeover diet. I have done the diet before and with that and working out I weighed 120 pounds at 5”5’. Now I weigh 156 pounds. WAY not ok. So, since I just recently got engaged I decided I HAVE to fix this. And also I just need this for me. There is no reason for me to live a sedentary life and eat junk all the time. And aside from the wedding, I made a deal with the boy that if I get to my goal weight of 125, he has to quit smoking for good! So here’s to both of our health!
Lost 2 pounds. Doesn’t seem like much. But its a start! Hopefully enough to keep me motivated. 2 years ago
I have not been dieting. Too poor. And this is just such a hard goal for me. I’m not a “gym” person. And I always try to fight that. This doesnt mean I cant get fit though. I just need to realize my health style. I would rather die than run on a treadmill for an hour. But, I would pay big money to dance! and I enjoy strenuous activity like playing paintball against 12 guys in a bodysuit in 100 degree weather. And I like ice skating. And tennis. I’m just starting to accept what I’ve always known, I cant do conventional “gym” exercises. I want my exercises like I want my life, full of variety. I have found a bunch of dance workouts on the web, from zumba, to pussy cat dolls workout, to belly dancing, to flirty girl fitness. THIS is what I need. At least to get me started. And motivated. These are FUN! And even though they don’t burn as many calories as I’d like, I have a much better chance of sticking to this than anything else. And I’m sure the pounds will come off slowly but these workouts actually GIVE me energy, which will up my chances of potentially trying a “gym” routine. Other exercises don’t give me that energy. Plus these are making me more aware of my body. Yes, that can be bad, cuz I see all the things about my body that I hate, but its good because it makes me feel sexier at the weight I am now. And if I can feel even a little sexy now, when I do reach my goal and do these dances I’ll feel on fire. And hopefully have the body of a dancer, because it doesn’t get much sexier than that. It is helping me to remember that dancing is something I used to LOVE and be passionate about. Reminding me that my body can move all sorts of ways and do beautiful things. So here’s to my new found insight. Wish me luck and love!
I worked out/danced for an hour today. : ) 2 years ago
fitday.com. A 43 things success story credited this site. It’s free so I signed up tonight. Maybe it will be enough to keep me motivated. I have actually gained weight. UGH. more! Even the fiancee noticed this time. And my new “fat girl” work pants I bought 3 months ago are starting to be tight! OMG. It feels so awful. But the truth is I eat the worst things possible, at the worst times, and I eat them often and in big portions. It’s no wonder I didn’t get fatter faster. (cries inside a little) Lol. Anyways I might start making oatmeal cookies for breakfast everyday. Not the bad kind, it’s healthy just has an egg and a pack of fake sugar. I just hate regular oatmeal. But it’s so good for you. Meh, maybe I’ll try it. I did go to a free workout class on Thursday. Maybe that will keep me motivated too. 2 years ago
Progress, progress. Damn it’s hard though. If I stay on track I will hit a milestone by Monday, of dipping in to the 150s!
It’s going to be tough though. I have a steak dinner/beer tasting tomorrow evening and a work-related wine tasting the next day followed by dinner at a Chinese place I’ve been wanting to try forever. (I know, nice problems to have—but it does mean I need to be really careful about exercise over the next few days)
OK, action plan:
Bike tomorrow for at least an hour and a half, aim for more like 2 hours if possible
very light breakfast of fruit, no pizza or happy hour apps for lunch
Saturday: I’m really not going to have much time to work out, Saturday is a crazy busy day. I’m hoping, however, that I can make up some of the calories on Sunday. If i don’t go out with my sister after dinner then I might be OK but I would really like to see her. :) 3 weeks ago
I hope it doesn’t go back up again, I keep fluctuating even though I’m eating healthy and exercising, dot understand that but… Just have to keep trying I guess. 4 weeks ago
Hasn’t budged in a while, but then again I barely exercised this week so that’s probably why. I just have to keep at it and remember how much better being healthy feels! 1 month ago
I’m now only 4 pounds over the weight I had achieved. I don’t really know why I’m getting a response to my diet right now, but I like it! 1 month ago
Which officially marks 10% there! Next milestone will be making it to the 150s again. I have a few date markers to help me set my goals:
In 150s by the 5k fun run I want to do in may (159.5 is fine I just want to break the 150s mark!)
155 by the end of may
Break into the 140s by the summer solstice! (Again 149.5 is fine just want to cross that hurdle!)
Be able to wear my favorite dress again by Independence Day weekend
Be in the 130s by the August trip (a trip where I have to wear a bathing suit somewhat often…eeeeeep!)
136 by my anniversary
I really want to feel good about myself and my body by then ;)
The last few… Eh, whatever, 134 or 136… I’m not THAT concerned. I’ll keep trying but I think I’ll feel ok with myself at 136 in my gettin older body… 2 months ago
And so far I’ve lost about 1 1/2.. Not great but at least it’s progress in the right direction.! 2 months ago
Plus 7 lbs now. Why? I asked the endocrinologist, but he doesn’t know. Actually my thyroid levels were fine. But I’m very anemic. I wonder if it was that we halved my metformin. 3 months ago
I’m determined to lose this weight for an event in September. I think 30 lbs. in 6 months is a reasonable goal. I’m going to start by walking or working out every day, eating healthy and being consistent. 3 months ago
