... and after all that drama

Well admitting you have a problem is the first step right?  I cried out for help this week... I told all of you (all 3 of you LOL) that I cheated on Saturday and Monday... and boy did I!  I even admitted what I did to my WW group this week.  Well, I only told them about the ice cream (24 pts in ice cream... damn you Nelson in Stillwater, why do you carry Licorice Chip Ice Cream???).  I had a photo session this weekend in Stillwater and wanted to get down there with plenty of time to spare... I mean it's ok for them to be late (which they weren't) but mo def not good for the photographer to be late.  So I meandered through Stillwater and my car (the devil on my shoulder was thinking it the whole time) just drove to Nelsons... I feet walked me in that front door and walked me out the door with 2 cups of licorice chip ice cream.  How dare they!  My ActiveLink didn't even recognize that walk into the store!

Anyway - I needed to give you a laugh right?

I did have a bad week this week.  I set my goal to meet my ActiveLink goal all 7 days.  I met it 3.  UGH... so close 3 of the 4 days I didn't make it.  I used my extra - extra points.  I did go to my water aerobics classes... but obviously not enough.  I think my saving grace was my two photo shoots... they kept me moving and my hands busy editing so no extra food was able to enter this temple of a body I have.

I say that I had a bad week but at the same time I had a fabulous week.  A dude at work actually told me I was wasting away to nothing (OMG I still have 100 lbs to lose).  I laughed and said that would NEVER be a description for me... and I thanked him for noticing and said I am working very hard at it.  He said "well is sure shows!"  How nice was that?

Well I tell you that to tell you this.  Last go round at WW, I had lost 93 lbs.  I know I told you that before, but the reason why I bring it up is that for those of you who have already lost a significant amount of weight - you need to know / hear this.  Once I lost about 75, I had people telling me not to lose any more weight.  That I was starting to look sick to them.  That I looked great, but don't do much more.  Well I fought it and fought it and did get myself down to my goal weight.  For maybe 1 week.  Then I gained 5 lbs... and hung onto that for probably a year.  So I never go lifetime and all the while thinking, oh that's fine.  I did it, I love where I'm at and I HOPE I never go back to where I was.  WRONG answer!!!  Hope is not the answer... the answer is I will NEVER go back to where I was... and this is where I'm at today.

You must not let those people who tell you to stop get to you.  Yes you look great, yes you're super healthy - healthier than you ever have been.  BUT you have a goal... now I'm not saying that you need to lose weight until you have lost too much - and too much meaning below the recommended standards.  I was at the tip of the standards.  The WW top goal weight for my height.  I was NOT sickly looking... shit I looked great and I will get to that state again!  I guarantee it.

Wish me luck because I'm on a friggin' role... after all that drama, I have met my 50 lbs weight loss this week... which was my goal as I walked out of WW last week.  I wanted to lose that 2.6 lbs this week.  Even though I thought it was unrealistic... obviously my body was ready to shed that weight.  I hope that you stay motivated enough to keep yourself on track for your goal... whatever that may be.

I will definitely get a picture of me posted... I know I didn't do it for my 45 lbs like I said I would.  If I can figure out my scanner I will post that picture of me that I swear I will get back to.

My goals for this week:

  1. Post a picture of my progress
  2. Meet my ActiveLink goal 5 days (let's be honest, 7 is tough for me right now)
  3. Stay on track... after a big weight loss, my goal is just to stay the same next week.  (I think the big bad wolf will be here to try and counter act my weight loss this week)

Take care and have a great week... please leave me comments, suggestions, thoughts for the week.  I need them, I need to stay on my honeymoon!!!

I can't wait until I'm healthfully ever after!

  1. I love reading your blog - you are funny! And honest! So you too know Subject - why is everything always about food, no matter what we do and how we can plan. Why is that some of the best times we have revolve around going out somewhere to eat. Not that we shouldn't but how can we work on what we choose, amount of food and how to order wisely.
