Ugh… Frustration!

First off, I wanted to say sorry for not posting last week. I was so busy with work, working out, and trying to clean for the house warming party, I was just too tired to do so.

Secondly… I hit a stall last week! Eek! Which made me sad and not super motivated to post. I hope it’s muscle weight but who knows. I’ve been going to the gym a lot more and doing weights on top of it. So I’m going to keep my fingers crossed and hope it picks up again soon. I want to get out of the 190’s. I’ve been here far too long!

I meant to do a post last night but sat down on my bed to relax for a minute and fell asleep. Oopsy!

I didn’t quite make my goal for the week (194.0 lbs) but I’m pretty close, so I’ll take it! Goal for next week, 192 lbs.

I will be doing a video tonight after the gym. Topics to be covered are listed below… It’s probably going to be a long one because we all know how much I like to talk! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • New Goals for the week
  • New Gym Membership and first and second work outs at the “new” gym
  • Running and EIA (exercise induce asthma)
  • Update on eating ability. What I can and cannot eat at 12 weeks out.
  • Shopping, my new addiction
  • What I did in the last week: graduation, Thunder from Down Under, cookout, trampoline, etc
  • Dealing with attention post-op

Sorry I didn’t post yesterday when I weighed in. I went swimming in the bay with my roommate/bestie! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll post pictures when I get home. We got rafts and decided to test them out. This is the first year we’ve lived by the bay (within walking distance from the house) and we were so excited to finally have nice enough weather to enjoy it. Now, if only I had a base tan. ๐Ÿ™‚

My goal for next week is 194.0. If I start walking more (I’ve been slacking hard core in the exercise department these days) and getting in lots of protein, I think I’ll be able to make my goal. Wish me luck.

Oh yea. And I got an A in my last class of my master’s! Woohoo. Graduation ceremony is tomorrow morning. Pictures to come from that as well. ๐Ÿ™‚

After graduation, I will post a more detailed post about some things I wanna talk about. I just don’t have much time today to do that. ๐Ÿ™‚

Photos as promised… Sorry it took so long to get them up.

One of my best friends, Sarah B... (my other best friend is name Sarah K.  lol).   We were getting our tan on.

Week 9: Weigh In Wednesday and 2 Month Surgaversary

Hello everyone! Sorry it’s a tad bit late but here it is. ๐Ÿ™‚ I didn’t quite make Onederland this week but that’s ok because I made my 50 lb mark which is just enough reason to celebrate. Woohoo! I missed Motivational Monday and my Two Month surgaversary this week since I didn’t get home until really late that day. So, I’m going to do a Two Month post here too – check out my video below for all the dets!

Total loss of: 50.2 lbs

I made this photo below from a picture on New Years 2013 and a picture from this weekend at the toy store. For those of you who are my friends on Facebook, you may have already seen it. But here is the comparison from where I started and where I’m at so far. I still have another 50-70 lbs to lose but I am happy with the progress so far. ๐Ÿ™‚ By the way, I totally love Cookie Monster… I think we were twins separated at birth. Haha.

Weight loss is not an easy journey. No matter how you do it, it’s a struggle every day. Along the way you don’t really feel the change… but looking back, you can see it.
Down 50lbs since January but still have a long way to go to reach my goal. Chipping away a little at a time.
