Taking It Off! Month 2

Taking If Off! Month 2!

Week 5

I finally feel like I am hitting my groove, my new habits are…well becoming habits, lol.

This week’s results, down 2.6!!! Yaaaasssss!! I am pretty proud of myself. This week’s loss puts me at 10.2; hitting my first 10 pounds feels great! This also brings me back to the weight I was before my dad got sick.

I am excited to shed the next 10!!! My clothes feel loser and a few people at work have already started to notice that I am losing weight, so yay!

This is my official 2 month pic. At the end I am going to make a collage to see if my face shrunk. I feel like my cheeks maybe getting slimmer?? Oh and I got bangs.

Week 6

Ok I think the universe is trying to keep me motivated; this pic popped up on my Facebook memory feed today, on day 1 of week 6. This is me 9 years ago at my sassiest! Message received!! I feel focused!

My week 6 weigh in is an exciting 1 pound!!! Wow!! Ugh, maybe I was getting too cocky??

But seriously, 1 pound is fine, I lost 4 pounds in week 4 and almost 3 pounds last week. I know that slow and steady will win the race; so 1 pound this week is fine…right? Yeah, it’s  fine…feeling it’s fine, (note to any man reading this, if your wife, girlfriend or significant other, tells you things are fine, this are not fine!! You’re welcome).

One of my victories this week was trying on a pair of linen pants that were too tight on me, but now they fit!

I am going into week 7 feeling a bit stressed. I am in talks with my company to transfer back to Canada; I am ready to trade the neon lights of Las Vegas for the Northern Lights of Canada; ok full disclosure, I’ve never actually seen the Northern Lights, they aren’t visible from Moncton, but hey it sounded good right?? Lol

My goal this week is to deal with my stress responsibility and to not feed my face. Wish me luck! I am feeling good, but I am going to try to dial back the cockiness, lol.

Week 7

Thursdays are my normal weigh in days; it’s Wednesday morning and I am so tempted to jump on the scale, but I am going to resist. I am feeling impatient and annoyed this week.

I’ve decided that slow and steady is annoying!! I am hoping that tomorrow’s weigh in is more than a pound. I just want to get the next 10 pounds off! I want to go shopping for new fall clothes; everything is not fine tonight!! Ok, it’s pretty evident that I am cranky.

Week 7 weigh in; I am down 1.9 pounds, so let’s be real, I am rounding that shit up to 2 pounds. I know that 2 pounds a week is a good and healthy pace, but I am getting bored!!!

I went to the grocery store after work today and fondled a 10 pound bag of potatoes to remind myself how heavy 10 pounds is. Ok, I didn’t exactly fondle them, it was more like holding them closely while walking around the produce aisles for a bit. I didn’t buy them, I am not a big fan of potatoes; I used them and discarded them, sorry potatoes, I am just not that into you.

That little exercise did help reset my brain and my patience. I am down almost 14 pounds so far; that’s a 10 pound bag of potatoes and 3/4 of a 5 pound bag, lol.

Moving on to week 8!!

Week 8

Day 2 of week 8, I went shopping for a new pair of pants for an upcoming event and guess what?? I am down a pant size!!!

This week included the Labor Day long weekend and for the first time in two months I felt anxious and wanted to just pig out!! I hate that feeling of losing control; I didn’t dive into a tub of Ben and Jerry’s, but I really wanted too! I was able to stay on track, but it was a struggle.

When it came to my weigh in day, I was a bit scared to step on the scale. It turns out I had a great week, but it didn’t feel great. I struggled mentally; I just couldn’t drown out those little negative voices in my head this week.

Stepping on the scale and seeing a 3.1 pound weigh loss was very encouraging! It helped me see that I can deal with my stress and crankiness without binging, so walking away from week 8 with a renewed sense of confidence.

My grand total is 16 pounds down!!!

This is my end of month two pic. I think my face is starting to look thinner? I am noticing it more in my mid section and my boobs, yay!! And I am not smiling on purpose because I want to compare my cheek size when I reach my goal. You’ll read in week 9 that my brother is not a fan of my none smiling pics.

muah!

(tomorrow I will be posting results from month 3!)

Taking It Off! Month 1

Taking it off! Month 1

Week 1

My first week was great! I lost 2.9 pounds! I really didn’t have any cravings, that’s what I like about Weight Watchers; if you need a bit of chocolate, you can have some. It’s all about moderation and planning.

Ok, I don’t look any thinner… yet, but I think it’s super important to make yourself feel good no matter what size of jeans your butt is in at the moment. So I got a fresh color, I hate to ruin anyone’s image of me, but I am a bottle blonde.

Week 2

I was on the road all week. Usually when at a show, we eat a lot of junk, but I behaved! When dining out I had salads and stayed away from the bread they put on the table. I didn’t count my points because we ate out every meal, which is not ideal, I know.

That being said, I was up 1.5 pounds, but in my defense, I started my period the day before I got weighed. For my male readers, a period is when you get bloated, retain water and are easily annoyed by stupid people!

I believe that I am actually down a bit or at least flat from last week; which for a week on the road is awesome! So I am not going to let the scale get me down this week; but that little bitch better be kinder to me next week!!

Week 3

After last week’s gain, I was happy to see the number on the scale go down. I lost 3.6 pounds this week, for a grand total of 3 pounds, in three weeks!! Omg this is my slowest weight loss ever!!!

I thought I would lose 10 pounds my first month, mother frigger!! Lol, but instead of throwing in the towel and walking over to the Cheesecake Factory, yes I live within walking distance to a Cheesecake Factory!!! I am going to put my big girl granny panties on, suck it up and be more focused this week!!

My goal for week 4 is 3 pounds, because a goal 7 pounds in a week seems a bit too optimistic, even for me!!

Week 4

Omg! Finally! I feel like I am getting somewhere; this week I am down 4.6 pounds, yay me!!! I know this seems like a lot in one week, but I have a lot to lose.

I was trying not to lose my motivation and to stay positive, but 3 pounds in 3 weeks wasn’t  exactly awe inspiring. I am down a grand total of 7.6 pounds, a little short of my 10lb goal, but I’ll take it.

I feel like I need to get the first 10lbs out of the way; like the first 10 aren’t very glamorous, because they aren’t noticeable, on me anyway, I am 5’7. But the next 10 is when I will start to feel it.

So what did I do differently this week? Nothing, I think it just took a few weeks to kick in? Like my body was thinking, mmm not sure what is going on here??

My goal for month 2 is 10 pounds and I am going in feeling strong and excited. I feel that I am in a great mindset and I believe that is key. I am not eating my feelings and I am really not that hungry. I make sure that I am satisfied, so I am by no means depriving myself. I had a chocolate chip cookie the other day, it was so yummy! But I had half of it and then saved the other half for later, I spread the yummyness. I could have woofed it down, but after eating half I decided that I was satisfied, so I put it away and ate it later.

I am trying to be more mindful of what I am eating and why I am eating. So bring on month 2!! Oh and I apologized to the scale for calling her a little bitch, we’re friends again.

muah!
