Losing It All

Is it after Christmas already?????

Wow. I can't believe how quickly time has been going! Seriously it's insane. I'm sure that everyone knows that too though. So I survived Christmas. Although I managed to gain 1.5 pounds somehow. Well I guess I shouldn't be surprised. I did really well about not eating a bunch of crap though. Although I did have a piece of peppermint bark because I had never had it before. It was good stuff. I highly recommend trying it. Anyway I got the fit ball that I wanted for Christmas. Yippee. I tried it any everything. It's really fun to play on. The thing is you can't feel it until after the fact and then wowee. It hurt to breath. Ouch. But that's alright. No pain no gain. right? I guess that's how the saying goes. At least if you are feeling the pain you know that it is working. It's sometimes hard to see the changes since I see myself everyday. I can see changes in my hips, thighs and calves. And I've been told that you can tell in my face. But I don't see it. Maybe I just need to stop looking at myself. Or maybe... well I had another or maybe but my train of thought has derailed. dang I hate it when that happens.

I think the title might've given away my news. But I am down by 15 pounds now!!!! Yipppeeee!!!! Yes I am behind schedule for where I wanted to be right now, but I am damn proud of myself. That's a great accomplishment for me! That means that I am at 9.375% of my goal and that I only have 90.625% remaining. Okay, when you put it that way it doesn't sound quite as exciting... but I am still thrilled!!!! And yes, I did go to the gym today, even though it is Christmas eve (gasp did I just say Christmas?). It was actually quite nice. There weren't many people there at all! Yeah! Although a couple of people did look at me funny when I started doing the dance of joy in the locker room... and for once, I wasn't crying because my weight was too high!

Wow I'm a slacker!

So I am a giant slacker, and I am not doing so well at maintaining this Blog, maybe that's because I am trying to juggle to blogs right now. One about weight loss and one about life in general. Sorry to anyone out there who may possibly be reading this. As of the weigh in on Saturday I was down 10 lbs so far. And depending on how you want to look at it that is 6.25% of my goal or to look at it Biggest Loser style I have lost 3.11% of myself. I know that's not how they word it there but I guess that will have to work. I just looked at the calendar and realized that I have only been doing this whole life change thing for seven weeks, but it feels like a lot longer. Everyone always told me "if you quit eating fast food you will lose weight really fast" hah. I just proved them wrong now didn't I!!!!

Just thought that I would leave an update here. I didn't wear the pretty pants. It's in the single digits temperature wise... here and that's just too damn cold for cute flimsy pants. Sorry but vanity has got to go sometimes!

So today has been a little better than yesterday. One of my coworkers commented on the fact that she remembers when I bought the pants that I am wearing today, (about 10 months ago) and they fit perfectly. Now they are really loose. I hadn't even really noticed it myself but they are kind of hanging on me know. I'm going to have to take them in. Or else I will start looking like a slob. I guess I need to take in the legs more than anything. Who knew your legs would shrink when you did step arobics??? I guess I am just losing my weight from the bottom up. Which is the opposite of how you usually do things. Usually things are done from top to bottom. Well I guess I'm just backwards or something. And I guess backwards progress is better than no progress at all I think.... maybe backwards progress is really forwards progress. Think about it.... Going forwards I put on all of the weight so by losing the weight I am in a sense moving backwards. Or something. But maybe I am over analyzing, I tend to do that. So I do have one bummer for today though. The pretty pants that I was planning on wearing to my Christmas party. I don't think that I am going to wear them. It is only supposed to be 10 degrees tomorrow and I think that is a little too cold to be wearing thin pants that are slit up to the knees. But I will post an update tomorrow. Knowing me I will probably wear them anyway!

Stuck in a Rut

I know I should be proud of what I have accomplished. But that is rather difficult when you aren't seeing much progress. One of the girls that I have been working out with weighed herself on Saturday and said she had lost 11 pounds. I don't get that. She missed a whole week at the gym. Maybe that's because she usually works out five times per week. I just don't have the time for that! Between work and the classes that I am taking I am lucky that I have time to go three times per week. Well and I guess I should factor in the time that I spend trying to maintain a social life. Oh wait, that's right.... I don't have a social life. I guess I am just frustrated with life in general. It seems that no matter what I do everything is in a standstill. It feels like everything in the world is progressing but I am just staying where I am. Oh sorry... don't mind me just throwing myself a pity party. I guess I just don't understand why all of the other people that I work out with are having problems with their clothes being too big and I'm not... with the exception of my shoes and I don't really think that counts.
