It’s been 22 days since I started my newest weight loss saga. Here’s what’s happened since then:

  1. I have lost 6 pounds
  2. I’ve done yoga anywhere between once to twice a week, still haven’t made it up to 3x
  3. I’ve EASILY drank anywhere between 7-12 cups of water in a day. I try to refill about a 20oz drinking cup as many times as I can muster, and I limit myself to one soda a day if any.
  4. (Minus this week, which was a bit insane) I’ve been bringing my lunch and my breakfast, to avoid going out where I don’t have as much control over my calorie intake. Though this week, since I went out a lot, I avoided high calorie drinks and snacking if I could.
  5. LOOK MY CHIN IS COMING BACK. I hope it’s not just me seeing that. And yeah I’m wearing make up in the picture I just took and not the other one, but it’s okay.
  6. I’ve been going for walks at least twice a week with people from work during lunches
  7. I’ve taken the stairs at work AT LEAST twice a day (3 flights) and I don’t pant (as much, if at all) anymore when I get to the top.
  8. We’ve had two volleyball games through work and my second one went MUCH better. 

My self control has been so much better, I’m making an effort to eat better (yeah I had five guys and a couple cupcakes, nobody’s perfect), but I’ve made really decent strides in just a month. I’m hoping that I can lose 2 more pounds by the end of next week so I can -maybe- see a little more of that chin for my engagement photos on Sunday.

I’ve made decent changes in my daily routine, but I haven’t totally flipped it on it’s head, and I haven’t stopped eating candy and burgers. It’s just all in moderation. I was saying screw it every day and eating all this stuff. I do yoga, I don’t run, I walk. I try playing volleyball, and it’s pretty much only because it’s fun. I’ve never been active in my entire life, so it’s difficult to just all of a sudden add in exercise and want to stick with it. But I totally killed my yoga session tonight, and I’m happy about that.

I haven’t been at this weight since May 2012, so there’s a little bit of encouragement there. In the past year, I’ve gone up as much as 13 pounds at the highest weight I found myself at, but since I started this, it’s 6.

I’m excited. I’m seeing something happen. It’s great.

  1. One of the at LEAST 5 people in my office talking about their wedding in the kitchen. It’s usually the same girl. I heard her engagement story about 20 times.
  2. The meatheads next to me talking about one of the following:
    A. Working out
    B. MMA fighting
    C. How much they weigh
    D. How much weight they will lose by x day
    E. What amazing thing they’re eating for lunch that’s so good for you (Quinoa, Sweet Potato, Brown Rice and Kale, among other things bought exclusively at Whole Foods or Trader Joes)
    F. Rapping
  3. The people in the kitchen talking about their amazing frozen meals
     and weight watchers.
  4. People talking about their friends and weekend plans.

Things I feel like more often than not in the past few weeks because of these overheard things:

Two guys who work next to you talk about losing 20 pounds like it’s drinking water.

And you hate yourself.

I’m over calories today. But at least I went to the gym?
And you thought I forgot :P
You’ll see my fat ass next Tuesday. 

If I don’t have a job, then I’m going to try to get back in shape. I need to be in shape anyway, since I’ve currently got “shapes.” Either way, I’m unhappy and I got winded last weekend walking up a hill. Not one of my prouder moments.
I’m going to try to make this a weekly thing. So if it becomes next Tuesday and I haven’t posted, someone message me to make sure I’m not eating a whole cake by myself. 
Today was day 2. I’ll try to wear the same outfit next week so I can see some difference in the same clothes.
I don’t want to weigh myself. But last I checked I was too heavy. I need to lose about 100 pounds in order to get to the top of my “ideal” weight range. Whatever.

Here’s hoping. 


Take a look at my life. I’m 28. I don’t go to the doctor unless I’m incapacitated. I don’t exercise. If I didn’t have to go to work, then I’d do drugs. I’d do a lot of drugs. I sit all day - for 10 hours at work, and then when I get home I either sit in front of my computer or on…

Thank you for this post. This is one of those things that frustrates me on a daily basis, because my boyfriend could eat all the exact same things I eat and I would gain weight, and he would probably lose weight. Same with my brother.
Instead, I just make cookies and say screw it. At least I can move on with my life.
