Made Up With The Scale

Well, I haven't "officially" weighed in since 8/22, so I got on the scale this morning to see where I was. I have gotten on the scale here and there and hadn't lost, but I never did an "official" weigh in. So, when I got on the scale this morning I was at 159.7. Wow, finally I've lost some weight. I've been sitting at 165/166 for like the last 3 weeks so I was getting very aggrivated. I was thrilled this morning when I saw that. I'm only 9.7lbs from my goal of 150! So I lost 6.8lbs over the last month, which I know is great. Now if I can just get that 9.7 off within the next month. We'll see. I can't believe I'm this close and only 9 months and 8 days after surgery. I've worked out the last two days and bumped up my protein. I've been doing carnation and boca burgers, so hopefully that'll help with that last 9lbs.

A New Day

Well, so far I've started off my day good. I decided if I want that last 15lbs I have to work for it to earn it. Sitting on my rear and eating bad isn't going to get that 15lbs off. I went out and got FF milk and boca burgers so I can bump up my protein. I've tried all sorts of bars and just can't find any with low sugar that I like. I love the slimfast bars but they are loaded with sugar and don't have much protein considering the calories and sugar. So I started my day with my carnation instant breakfast then Athena and I took a walk to the park (I think it's a little over 2 miles round trip). Now I just have to get the mindless snacking taken care of in the evenings. Going to do a boca burger and a little rice for lunch! I can hardly wait! LOL

Hair Contemplation

I can't decide on a hair style. It's driving me nuts, but I'm trying to figure out what I want before I go to the salon in 2 weeks. I think I've narrowed it down to these 3 but I can't decide which one I like better. Need opinions....please leave a comment on which one you like better. Girl in black shirt, very pale girl, or blonde girl. I have no friends out here yet so I need my internet friends to give me their opinions. To see my current picture scroll down to one of my entries. I can't get it to post on the side because it stretches and looks all crazy! Didn't get on the scale this weekend because I know it hasn't budged. Going to get some skim milk and boca burgers tomorrow so I can get more protein and hopefully start losing again. Hope everyone has a nice week!

The Scale is not moving

The scale is stuck...literally, it's not moving, it's just sitting there at 165...stupid scale....ya know, it's so funny because months ago I said I'd be thrilled to get to 175 and that anything after that would be great but I wouldn't freak out, so why am I freaking out at 165, why do I want that 150 so bad, I mean seriously, I've lost 142lbs. Anyways, going to get back on track with working out now that the family is gone. Next wave comes in October 23 and I'm leaving for a business trip October 11-16, so I have a month. I'd like to drop another 5lbs before I leave, so I've gotta start getting my protein again and working out. Going on Sept 29 for a new hair style. Thinking something like the picture to the right. What do you guys think? It's drastic but I need a big change. Thinking about changing my color too, just not sure what color, maybe red or black, something totally different....give me feedback...would love to hear what you guys think!

Yet Another Day

Nothing new to report on this end. I had an interview today. Looking for something a couple days a week to get out of the house and interact with other adults. Plus a little extra spending money wouldn't be bad. Retail stores don't pay squat though. Oh well, I'm not out for big bucks or a management job, so I guess you take what you can get, plus I'm being super picky with the days and times I can work. Anyways, forgot to get on the scale this morning, will try and remember to do it tomorrow. We have family coming in, so dreading eating for the next week.

Holy Cow!

Well, I finally got my butt in gear and and worked out today. I should have done more but I figured something is better than nothing. I'll work back up to where I was. I was sweating my butt off though, OMG the humidity. I was literally dripping wet. It felt good to work out though, I'm glad I did it. Now I have to convince myself to do it at least every other day at the least!

So, I went shopping on Sunday (all by myself, oh how nice it was). Let's just say I haven't been shopping alone since last year. I love my kids but gosh, it was so nice to be able to take my time and brouse. So, I had a giftcard for Macys so I started out there. Now, remember, I'm from Las Vegas, plus I've lost over 140lbs, so I have like zero clothes. I ended up getting a nice heavy jacket, 5 shirts, and a pair of jeans. So, sizes please........the jacket, well, a medium fit but I figured if I'm wearing it over a sweater or something that it would be a little tight, so I got a large. The shirts I ended up getting a L/XL in them. They are fitted so I probably could have done a M/L but I don't like clothes clinging to me. My jeans.........drum roll please.....a size 12.....yep, a size 12. I was totally excited about that. I tried on some 12s in the junior section, yea, not happening. What exactly is a junior anyways? I always thought it was trendier clothes, but obviously not. Guess they're for people before "child bearing hips and thighs". A couple fit but they looked like they were painted on my thighs and ass! Anyways, I went to the normal section and got some Levis. I think I have enough clothes to get me through winter, considering I don't go anywhere. Still sitting at 166.5.
