2nd to last day of February.

weigh in 203.8

February Recap:
        This month was a tough month. I had some crazy cravings before TOM and after.  I started at 207.4 this month. So I lost 3.6lbs wich really isnt that great but its still a loss. I slacked off alot this month. Its a short month but its only short by two days.  I know where I went wrong and I know how to fix it. I have to know that I am strong enough to do this because I am.  I received my skirts that I am not allowing myself to wear until my goal of 199lbs! :)
         Through this month I also made it to a mini-goal of 50lbs! So I went to the Museum of Tolerence! It was very inciteful and such an amazing experience. I also got myself a few new pairs of pants. :)  To know that as of now I have gotten through 9months of a lifestyle change! I am almost to my 1 year anniversary! I have come so far and feel so good. Its amazing that I have been able to do this for this long. :) Heres to another month!

March Hopes and Goals:

          I have few thoughts for march.  I know I want to stick to plan and be honest with myself with snacking because ive had a few days of oversnacking this month.  I also want to finally get under 200.  So here are my goals for March.  Although My plan for march may change in a couple days when March starts.  This is what Im thinking for my mini goals.

1. Stick to plan
2. Make it to 199lbs
3. Try for 195lbs.
4. But go for 5lbs lost.


I'm through accepting limits, cause someone says they're so. Some things I cannot change but 'til I try I'll never know!" ~ Wicked ~

A new day...

weigh in 204.

    So im starting to see that my weightloss is slowing way down. Im really not ready to start excecizing vigorously yet. I am walking more and going up and down stairs more and lots more movement. I have really made up my mind though that I wont be doing really long or planned out excercizing till this summer. I have about a month or two. lol then excercize.  I started this month out at 207.4 i am now at 204. I started January out at 209 and ended at 207.4. January was really my own fault wiith cheats. But February was almost complelty on plan. Sure a couple cheats but nothing big.  My goal was to be at 199 by the end of this month. I have 5 days to do it?  I doubt I can do it but Ill try my best.  I do want to look at my pattern and expect an attainable goal. So for the next 2 months I need to expect lower than if I was excercizing.  I want to expect 5lbs a month for the next two months and hope to go above and beyond. :)
       I also got a note from Loni that my two skirts are going in the mail today. :) So excited. A recap. Loni is the owner of Love to Love you clothing line. She designs and make all the clothes herself. She has been here along the way with anticipating for my goal skirts.  She just finished making my first two! Want to go check out her shop? click here.

In case you forgot what my first two skirts look like here they are.

Goal skirts for 199lbs.

And dont forget summer is just around the corner. Its time to start eating your fruits and veggies again! Get ready for some great info on all your favorite fruits and veggies. I will be answering any questions you have like- Does spinach really clean you out?  Why do prunes make you poo?  What so good about a watermelon?

Bucket list of life Goals

weigh in 204!

    Woo hoo! Weighed in at 204 this morning.  I have 4 more pounds till Feb. goal and 6days to go. Lets do it! :)

    So with my goals of weightloss have come the want for myself to make all my goals come true.  Maybe they wont all come true but Im going to work hard for all of them. It seems I now know I deserve them. :)

          So this weekend I will be crossing one of the Bucket List. Godwilling my sister and I are going to the Museum of Tolerance in West LA! I have wanted to go here since I was in like 7th or 8th grade.   When I learned one of its main Exhibit explorations are all about the Holocaust.  Im so excited for the emotional experience I know it will be. :) I figured it was time to finally reward myself for my hard work. I will also be going Horseback riding on saturday. I was supposed to go Horseback riding 16lbs ago but instead have chosen to buy clothes whenever I have extra money. Well I am puting my foot DOWN! lol Im going Horseback riding and to the Museum. I will be crossing of two goals off my bucket list. :)

I also plan on taking some progress pics. : )

So Saturday and Sunday are planned out. :)

Morning all the stall is over!

weigh in 206.0

Goodmorning all! Life has been a bit busy and crazy lately. Staying on plan and being quite strict with myself!  My goal is 199 by the end of February and Im doing all I can to make it. If I dont make it and have done all I can then fine. But I want to know I tried my best. :)

I also got to order my next goal that I am 11lbs away from!  My next goal at 195lbs.  I cant wait! I ordered them because its going to take a few weeks for them to be made and by that time i should be at my goal! I will not wear them till I get to 195 though. That is most definetly what will keep me going strong as many of you know i have been waiting in anticipation for these skirts for months! lol and now its so close.  To think 3 months ago I still thought I may never get to Onederland but look Im 7lbs away and 11lbs from my first skirt goal!

Do you remember my next goal?

So to recap here are my next couple rewards goals with Loni's lovely skirts!
  1. 195lbs get two skirts!
  2. 180lbs get two skirts!
  3. 160lbs get two skirts!
  4. 140lbs goal do whatever you want!!! LOL

For my first two skirts I decided on....

Enchanted forest Ruffle Skirt
Pac Man Ruffle Bum Skirt

hangin on the edge by a thread...

Weigh in 207.8

       This weekend was good. I got to spend some time with my darling Fiance'!  I spent time with my mom to. :) We had a nice BBQ for Superbowl. Really a last minute thing. (But man Martin can BBQ some amazing Ribs!) It was delicous chicken breast and ribs. Then mom made her famous potato salad. The only potato salad that I truely love! :) So it was a pretty good weekend. I have some family things going on but its all in God's hands.
              Im on my 2nd week of being at the same weight and being on plan. I have been on plan for almost two weeks and soon it will be the beggining of my third week.
             Yesterday I went over my calories by a little and sunday and monday to. Im really stressed out by some stuff in my life. Honestly yesterday I was about ready to say F*** this. I was ready to give up. I havent lost in over 2 weeks. I gained 4ounces and Im so stressed and feel like Im going crazy.  I havent journaled in over a week. I feel like everything is falling upart in my life.
      Then I was reading my favorite comic this morning. Its called Chinchat comics. click here to read.  It was all about how things can always get worse. I realized that even though some really horrible things are going on in my life. I still have so much to be thankful for. Even if they are small things. I am healthy, alive, in school, I have my mom, I have 2 amazing brothers, and an amazing Fiance'!  I have so much family its ridiculous and they all love me and are there for me.  Im doing great in one of the hardest classes I have ever taken. (Medical Terminology) I have a job. Thank you God for all the many blessings!

Then I also saw this:

My ticker from 3FC that tracks my weightloss
 I have worked so hard to get to this point! Am I really just going to give it all up? No I know that I have to be stricter though.  I know I need to start excercizing again. I need to live in the solution not the problem. I will not allow the demons of problems to rule my life. I have a choice. Whatever I choose is my choice. I choose happiness and to be healthy. So Im going to be proactiv.  I have to work for it. :)

First Step:
  • Goto work and school
  • study hard
  • control my eating
  • stay at my calorie limit
  • smile
  • Be grateful to God
Today I will own my First Step!
