Out with the old, in with the new!

I forgot to mention that most of these clothes are a size 4x in BIG ladies size. This is not the 4x you find at Walmart...this is big ladies 4x's. LOL I am anxious to see if I have at least gone down a size.

I dont know what is going on. I have not lost any weight but gained instead. I could SCREAM!!

I have not been messing up. I wonder if its because of my portion size, but Im not going over my callories. There were a couple days I went about 200-300 over my calorie count but I cant see that being a big deal. I eat about 1400-1500 callories each day. Should I up that amount? Maybe my body needs a change.

A bloggy friend of mine just reached her 100 pound loss. CONGRATS Mommy2four. I hope to be where she is in a year.

So I have a set back. The good news is that I measured myself and I have lost a good inch and a half over all of my body. I know Im still going forward. I have not given up...but its very discouraging to see a gain instead of a loss for the first time.

My new job is of course a sitting down one. I am very careful not to eat the free snacks that are all around me. Instead I eat about a pint of cherry tomatoes each day...or I try to bring a veggie that I can just grab one at a time and pop them in my mouth. It makes you feel like your eating chips except it taste different. LOL

Im so impatient!!!


I just looked back on my blog and realized that I never posted when I got down to 272. The last time I posted it was 274. Just for the is my 272.

My weight seems to yo yo up and down. The good news is I'm still on the loosing end. I never thought it would feel so good to be a "looser" of sorts. (grin)

The fourth of July did not detour my "skinny" goal. I did manage to eat health and even allowed myself two small handfuls of peanut M&M's as a small treat while watching fire works. I didn't even feel guilty about it because I had done so well.

This past Christmas we were showered with presents from Rebekah and Ben as well as their friends and family. My girls were gifted with these AMAZING pants,

however; they were to big for them so I immediately snatched them from my little girls hands and decided I wanted them. To my dismay I discovered that I was far from fitting into them so I stuck them in a drawer.

These pants have been on my mind for a long time. They might not look like much to you but I think they are adorable. My goal is to fit into them. They are from Old Navy and a size XL. I LOVE Old Navy sleep ware. They are so comfy and stylish to me, but I just don't fit in them yet.

So I will proudly display these amazing sleepy pants on my wall as inspiration. I tried them on this morning and they only fit half my butt. UG! I guess I need to loose half a butt to get into them. (sad face) I'm working on it.


My boobs are shrinking. I know I know, not a great subject to talk about, but I'm going to do it anyway. I have noticed that my "new" bras are fitting weird. I'm sporting the "four boob" thing again. You know those women you see walking down the street that clearly have a bra that is two small on causing four boobs instead of one? Come on people, you know what I am talking about and I can joke about it because I have been one of them. Well it seems that my boobage has decreased causing them to not be as full and sort of spill out the front. How embarrassing. My boobs are going to be a work in progress for sure. Can anyone relate? Or am I in a class of "boob" all of my own?

Why do I do that?

Yesterday I did not feel well. I think all the stress Id been going through gave me a stomach ache. I tried everything to get my stomach to settle down but to no avail. Finally at dinner time I poured a big bowl of Life cereal in milk hoping it would settle my stomach. I ate about three bites and then threw it out because I couldn't get past the thought of all the carbs and fat going into my body. LOL Such a waste I know.

Later that night I woke up at about midnight and went to the kitchen. Skyler had a left over pop tart (which I consumed) and then I made myself a peanut butter and honey sandwich (which I consumed) and a glass of milk. GRRRRRR!! I have pretty much conquered my night eating habit but sometimes If I don't eat a good dinner I find myself eating at night.

I will not weigh myself today because for sure I will see the numbers go up instead of down. Today is a new day!! NO MORE NIGHT EATING!

Life circumstances.

If you read my other blog, you know that this last week was really hard for me. I explain here what happened.

I am determined not to let my life circumstances get in the way of my weight loss. I know things are going to be different from her on out but I cant let it stop me.

While I was at work it was so easy to eat right. I ate breakfast before I left and because I was not allowed to eat at my desk, and I didn't get brakes, I only would have water between breakfast and lunch and lunch and dinner. We didn't have coffee at work or snacks so it was only lunch and water for me. Easy as pie (although sometimes I wished I could have pie at work. I would get so hungry).

Now I am home. I have to be careful not to dig into the kitchen since it is so available to me now.

Here is my weight this morning. I am still making progress! Im not going to let life's circumstances stop me!

That makes a grand total of 45 pounds lost since this time last year, and 25 pounds lost since May.
