From a size 15 to a 5

Standard

Hot diggity damn this feels awesome. I’m down 65 lbs (to 130 lbs now) and I can now wear a size five pants comfortably. I know weight and pant size don’t define you but damn it can make you feel pretty good. I’ve come a LONG way from what I was. I exercise daily. I eat right (for the most part) and I generally just feel so much better.
I had started running, but shin splints have had me off for a few days. Not to mention the whole remodeling the house thing.
Either way I’m hoping to meet my goal weight of 120 by the time dragon con rolls around. That leaves me with a little over a month to lose 10 lbs and if I try hard enough I think I can make it. I’ve just got to cut out cheat days. Which are generally every Saturday. I’ll still keep the carbs at 30 grams instead of 20 grams because I’d really rather not almost pass out again as that was scary and not to mention embarrassing. I was in the middle of old navy and I guess my blood sugar got too low and everything got really fuzzy and my legs felt like led and I was really, really dizzy. My face turned white as a sheet along with my lips and under my eyes were black and purple looking. Scared me enough I went straight to Golden Corral and wolfed down some rolls. But yeah the day after that I started adding more fruit to my diet. I am, at least going for complex carbs instead of refined, simple carbs. I think a lot of what happened has to do with genetics. My mothers blood sugar randomly bottoms out sometimes. I always get the shitty problems that she has. All her allergies and apparently her low blood sugar. Well, at least I also got her legs. We got some bangin’ legs.
I think I’ve rambled on enough.

Down 60 pounds!!!

Standard

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.

I’ve lost over 50 lbs!

Standard

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!

Updates and such

Standard

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. 

Funny story:

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.

So I’ve lost 36 lbs

Standard

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.
