Monday Weigh-In: Week 2 of ‘the Ultimate Showdown’

So I said I would be completely honest (raw) about this weight loss journey… well here it is.  I have gained weight since I started this blog, which was at the end of January of this year.  It’s no secret that this journey has been a wild rollercoaster, some ups and some major downs.  It’s easy to post your weight when you’ve lost, but it’s an even harder pill to swallow when you see such a drastic weight gain.  If you look at it half-empty,  this has been a big public failure (on my behalf).  BUT, I’m looking at this half-full and am looking at this as the greatest opportunity to prove to myself that I can do it.  The fact of the matter is that I’m NOT continuing to go in the direction I was going in and am now determined to get it right this time! As I stated in my vlog, I have missed too many chances and wasted too much time on being less than my absolute best. 

I was talking to my friend Ali today about weight loss and motivating factors, etc. I remember telling her that my main reason for having this site public is so that I remain accountable.  I’m hyping this up so much this time so I have no option but to succeed.  If I stop blogging for more than a week, someone PLEASE email me or call me! Make sure I’m alive and if I am… Puhleeeeeze make sure I’m not stuffing my face with tacos and burritos in front of the TV watching my soap opera! 😮 But in all seriousness, I was talking to my friend Nick today and told him that I’m scared.  I’m scared to make this sooo extremely public and then to only fail again.  But as stated, that’s why you all know mah bidnessss… so I don’t fall off the weight loss wagon.  It’s time to DO ME, damnit! ‘Nuff said.

So Kate B & I weighed in for the second week of our Ultimate Showdown weightloss challenge.   Last week at the start of the challenge, I weighed in at… *gasp* 282.8.  For week 2, I weighed in this morning at: 

I lost a total of 3.6 lbs, but my weight loss tracker at the bottom of the site says 4lbs.  Apparently it doesn’t account for tenths of a lb… boo. 

So there it is.  I will be doing this every Monday, so stay tuneddd! And send me some positive vibes, aiight? 

Let’s see what next week brings – great things, I hope!  But until then, you can check out what I’m eating and how much I’m exercising via my LiveStrong account.  If you click the  button on the right-hand side of the main page, it will take you to my profile page.

I’m absolutely pooped from such a long day and am ready to hit the sack.  Gooooodnight!

P.S. I swear my feet are more attractive than that… ugh, what the … straight up Fred Flintstone feet. lol

    Okay Tina… I love you… you know I do. So take a deep breath before you read my comment:


    Until you put yourself out there, until you no longer make this weight-loss your dirty little, you will fail. Why? Because if no one but YOU knows the truth, you will allow yourself to slip and make excuses for it. You’ve done it before, it was so easy to do it before, you will do it again. The amount of times I did this shit to myself is RIDICULOUS, but by putting my weight-loss journey ALL OVER the damn internet for my friends, family, enemies, strangers, stalkers, weirdos and rude muthaf***** to see I knew it would hurt more to fail. Failure is never an option… and if it happens, knowing that the world is watching you fail hurts so damn much you will do your utmost best to not allow it happen. If you can’t be honest with yourself and others about your weight-loss journey, you’re not ready for it.

    But you’re ready… you’re just scared. Take the leap Tina, you’ll be so happy that you did, and when you have that bodacious body you’ll be able to look back on all of this, the criticisms, the pictures, your feelings that you’ve documented and feel beyond proud of your journey.

    Okay, mean Yetti is gone. [ hugs ]!!

      You never cease to amaze me with how you can bring a very serious issue to light w/ humor and downright real talk. I appreciate it, I do. I will continue to post my weight publically, esp for all the reasons you mentioned. You continue to be a source of inspiration for me. Ty!

    1. I was not aware that you had a blog until you tweeted me the other day! I know Yetti’s told me before but I usually don’t look stuff up unless its been written down somewhere. But I love your design and everything!

    2. I agree with Yetti’s comment. Putting everything out there makes it so much easier to stay on track. And make sure you post about your bad days too because it just makes it more real I guess.

    3. I’ve made it my own personal task to yell at Yetti when she doesn’t blog, and I will do the same thing for you. So be prepared 🙂

  3. Augustina says:

    1. Thank youuu!
    2. I definitely will post my bad days, all my past post have been about bad day, mainly b/c I didn’t have the right mindset. But I def plan on keepin to realio. 🙂
    3. Yessssssuh! I need someone to yell at me when I don’t. I never thought I’d ask for that, but I NEED it! Plz plzzzz and I’m certainlyyy prepared.

    Much <3

  4. Sarah says:

    I <3s your new blog design. It's totally you.

    I have to completely agree with Yetti. In fact, I have nothing to add because she has directly hit the nail on the head. 🙂

    This weight loss this? Hardest thing EVER.

    Figuring out WHY we are eating food, and sabotaging ourselves in the first place? Even harder. 🙁

    But you can do it. You are worth it. You have the tools. You clearly have the support. Be patient and forgiving with yourself. Sit with your mistakes, figure them out, be mindful of what you eat, when and why.

    Never stop trying.

    You are awesome. And gorgeous. 🙂

    • Augustina says:

      Jennifer! Hey girl, heyy!! Thanks for the support, I need as much of it as I can get. You’re right, I need to be mindful of when/why I eat… Queen Emotional eater right here… ugh. But in terms of sitting with my mistakes, I liked the way you framed that. I need to spend more time reflecting on them..

      You inspire me, girlfriendddd! TY & much loveeee.

    Negative, I’m playing my heart out trying to 3 star all the original Seasons Season’s Greedings, the comment I made about Chrome was just that, a comment, but I do have all of Chrome 3 starred and I know from having read through your comments columns that Chrome Season’s Greedings scores are not allowed on this site, if you desire I can send you screenshots of all my original seasons Season’s Greedings scores. Just say the word and it shall be done.

  9. Não ouvi o podcast ainda, mas vocês esqueceram de um detalhe importante (pelo menos eu não encontrei). O que diferencia um podcast de um audioblog, é que o podcast tem um Feed RSS que você cadastra no seu Agregador de Podcasts e ele baixa sempre que sairem epiódios novos. Não encontrei o link para o RSS.

    Well, if Jim is like B Walsh, he will use this to motivate Alex, if you don’t think Bill played Steve off of Joe then think again. What I will be looking for is that deep pass from Alex and his accuracy with it. Has Harbaugh been holding back on pass plays of 10 yards or greater cause he does not have faith in Alex’s arm. This will be interesting as it unflolds.

    I ain’t gonna lie.. this isn’t as bad as I expected.. but wtf..What’s wrong with Craig david.. talkin the hardest.. he needs to llow it.. first he tonks up, learns a few ‘street’ words, and spits over A Milli.. now this = badman. Nah don’t think so G.

    I do consider all the ideas you have presented on your post. They are really convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are very short for newbies. Could you please extend them a bit from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.

  13. Everywhere do you have this information? Simply because I became in search of anything for this matter for a long time, nevertheless every piece of information this I’ve made ended up greatly biased.

  14. O FMI sozinho é uma coisa- isto em troika é outra muito diferente.Não é nada a treta de um empréstimo com juros e prazo e acabou. É jogo com credores a ganharem com a dívida. Porque fazem parte do euro.
