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
