I now weigh in at 135 pounds, down 60 pounds from 195. I’ve gone from a size 15/16 to a size 8/9. From XXL shirts to mediums. From hating the way I look to not being nervous about wearing bikinis in public or shirts with no sleeves or shorts or skirts…I just have so much more confidence.
I’ve got some nice comparison photos, too.
And these were taken a couple weeks ago:
The after pics aren’t that great quality because my phone sucks, but I tried to lighten them up a bit.
I’m so very proud of myself. I probably annoy the hell out of people, but I can’t help it. I’m still so amazed that I’ve completely transformed my body in less than 6 months. I’m amazed that clothes that I got just this past Christmas completely falls off of me. I’m amazed that I’ve gotten as small as I was when I was 16. I literally haven’t been this small in 7 years. And now I feel old wow.
Yep. I have lost 52 pounds as of now. I weigh 143 now!!! It’s kind of insane. I never thought I could do this. I have 23 more pounds to lose and I’ve been working out almost every day. Stretches, 100 crunches, and 10 squats every morning. Stationary bike and yoga when I can. When it stops raining ill be outside on my home gym getting my arms into shape.
I cannot wait!
Chicken breast strips fried in butter with tomatoes, cilantro, and just a tad bit of lemon juice. Seasoned with Cajun spices and onion powder because I forgot to buy an actual onion. Woops. Still tasted marvelous.
I’ve lost 41 lbs so far and I now fit into a size 10/11 which makes me feel pretty awesome. I’ve also lost some boobage. I’ve gone from busting out of a 38DD down to a 36D cup. This also feels amazing. I can buy cute bras now!!!
I’ve been playing Kinect Adventures a lot for exercise. I’ve downloaded a Zumba demo and I will start that as soon as I get my nerve up. I’m not going to lie–Zumba makes me a bit nervous. Perhaps after work, I’ll conquer my nervousness. I’ve been cleaning literally all day today. Thankfully that burns calories. It also get my room clean haha. Everything is almost done I still have a few things to organize–like my massive amounts of shoes. I have given a lot of my shoes away and have dwindle down to just 30+ pairs instead of having over 70 pairs of shoes. I’m proud of myself for the willpower to give up shoes. Wow, this blog post is all over the place, then again, so am I. A note on the weight loss, a lot of people have been noticing and asking me how I’ve been losing all the weight and it feels so nice that people actually notice the change.
As I stated above I’ve been cleaning literally all day long. My dog apparently thought that I was leaving due to the extensive cleaning. While I was sorting through some clothes she climbed in my lap and whined for the longest time, she has followed me everywhere–even to the bathroom. She even laid on top of some of my things I was sorting through. I suppose that was an attempt to keep me here. Even now she is asleep beside of me. My dog is far too smart for her own good. I kind of feel bad that I’m going to be gone for a week in September for vacation. Poor thing will be beside herself. This is why I love her though. She’s smart and obviously very caring. I don’t know what I’d do without her.
I now weight 159 lbs! Last summer I weighed 195! I’m super excited about shedding the weight. Even more excited about getting down to my goal weight soon. (140 lbs). I may even go lower than that. It kind of depends. I’ll wait until I get there to make my decision to lose anymore. I’ve found a great workout too; Xbox Kinect Adventures. Holy crap. It’s like a full body workout, but really fun. Until the next day of course because right now everything hurts. Lol. It’s completely worth it, though.
I feel like ass right now. And last night(this morning?) I’m pretty sure I was getting pretty dehydrated. I woke up @ 2:00 am feeling like I was going to vomit. My head hurt and I was dizzy. I was covered in sweat and freezing and at the same time, my skin felt like it was on fire. I guzzled down a bottle of water and ate a little kale and felt instantly better. From then I got up every 2-3 hours until 10:00 am to pee and drink more water. Definitely going to try to drink 12+ glasses of water a day instead of just 8-10. I found my Alive! Women’s Multivitamins today so I took one. I think I’ll keep doing that, mostly for the magnesium. Right now I’m feeling very sleepy, so I think I might take a small nap and then eat lunch. Thankfully, I’ve not been achy or anything through my carb flu so far. Just a general tired sluggish feeling. Maybe I’ll have more energy after nap/lunch time. I’ll clean my room after that.
On the brighter side of things, I’ve lost 5 pounds since Wednesday. Down to 175 lbs now!
It’s a lot shorter in the back. Like WAY shorter. Some of it is probably not even an inch long in the back. But I love it. Also I love that hat. Best hat ever.
In other news I am 3 pounds lighter than I was yesterday. Not sure if that’s keto working or a fluke. Either way I am back in the 170s at 177 finally. My goal for now is 140 and I will decide from there if I want to lose more weight. 🙂
So I started the keto diet today. So far I am doing good with only 14g of carbs consumed! Yay!!! I have been craving some bread-y items but I’m doing good with keeping my willpower up. Tomorrow I go to find out if I have PCOS. Then hopefully we can have a nice discussion and figure out what to do about my situation. Since I have already started that diet, that should help anyways. I’ve read that I shouldn’t even try to work out the first couple of weeks. Apparently you get “the carb flu” because your body is switching from using carbs as energy to using fat as energy instead. A lot of people lose 20 lbs in a month. I am super excited!
