Weight loss! January 13, 2009

Yea, the exclamation point is a misdirector. I only lost .6lbs
last wk (weigh on mondays) even though i went to the gym the entire week! Very annoyed. was in training for work so they had catered lunch for us and I think I ate more than I needed.

Unfortunately, losing such a small amount of weight after working so hard made me not go to the gym so far this week! I feel a bit smaller today though so maybe I’ll head back on Wednesday or Thursday. Trying to watch my food choices but it’ s hard

In my opinion, you can only call your self “curvy” if you actually have multiple curves. IE you have wide hips that shrink to a smaller waist then get bigger again at the chest. See, multiple curves. If you are just a single curve being widest in the middle you are not “curvy” you are fat.

I was wondering why I hadn’t gotten any readers over from this site to my other blog. Then a nice person sent me an email letting me know the link I put went nowhere. That’s how new the blog is. I forgot what I named it! Happy New Year all. It is 2009 as I post this

I am definitely not going to make my goal. Weighed myself this morning. 204.8. No way I am losing 4.8lbs in one night. I guess I just have to be really focused next year.

Apparently, my parents got into a fight about my weight. My dad thinks I am too fat and he thinks my mom skirts the issue when talking to me. He feels that my weight projects a certain image that he is not happy with. He didn’t say all this to me but I found out about it because my mom got upset with him and came to vent in my room.

I have to do something about this. Not for them. But for me. I don’t like what I see in the mirror. The blog title says it all. I want to be a vixen, a siren. NOW. Not when I am 40. My mom wants told me -“you weigh this much already and you haven’t had any kids.” I thought about that one real hard.

I am going to attempt an actual diet. The last time I lost weight, I wasn’t on a diet. I just ate less and better. I didn’t really cut out anything but I wouldn’t eat a lot of junk. I can’t seem to find that motivation. I think I want to start something like the Atkins just to jump start my weightloss.

What do you all think? Has anyone else tried it? Where you excercising as well? and around how much did you lose?

I noticed most of my readers are coming from the pf blogs I read and comment on and I just wanted to let you know that the feedback I have gotten from this has inspired me to start a debt blog as well. It’s on blogger simply coz I couldnt figure out how to get a debt meter on wordpress (haven’t figured out how to do it on blogger either but at least I know it’s possible) and I think that is essential.

I’d love to have you guys as readers.

So today was not good. Ate breakfast late so grabbed a sandwich which wasn’t too bad and a milkshake (what’s wrong with water?) and a muffin (why?).

Didn’t sleep much last night so was tired. Went to the gold market with the parentals and came back and took a nap. Was not very hungry when I woke up about 9pm and should just have left it at that. However, I got vexed by mi madre and all of a sudden felt I had to have dinner. Went to the mall and grabbed a shawarma which wasn’t the greatest but I had to kill it all by going to coldstone and getting ice cream.

Funny thing is I was kind of full by the time I started eating that but I made myself finish it.

It’s becoming clearer to me that I eat when I am frustrated or annoyed. I wish I was one of those people who lose their appetite in those situations. To add insult to injury, I didnt do any exercise today.

I can’t go on like this if I truly want to see change. Hope I get my act together by 2009.

Already the positive effects of this blog are being felt.

Even though I have no readers YET, I felt obligated to keep my promise and do some form of excercise yesterday. I slept a lot in the hotel room and then quickly asked myself what I was doing and convinced myself to go to they gym. The funny thing is once i am in the gym, I like it. I like pushing myself. I am not sure why I have no motivation to actually get up and go. I wish I could hit a button and just be teleported to the gym.

Motivation is such a weird thing. I know i want to lose weight. I know what I have to do but sometimes it’s like I don’t want to be bothered. Thinking about it, I guess it just boils down to plain old laziness and that is something I need to work on.

Doesn’t look like i will be under 200 by the new year but I’ll let you know the details.

Closing out 2008 December 28, 2008

Finally. A post about me.

Well, as I mentioned earlier I am in the UAE on vacay. Still over 200lbs (205lbs to be exact) and I am wondering if I can end 2008 under 200. 199 would be okay with me. Let’s see, I have 3 more days so I don’t think it is really possible but I am going to try. The hotel has a pool and a gym so if I don’t utilize them it’s 100% my fault.

On a normal basis, it’s easier for me to lose weight on holiday but the obstacle this time is the fact that my mother is here. My mother is who taught me these horrible eating habits and while i take responsibility now that I am adult, it’s really hard to eat right when she is around. She always talks about losing weight but then wants to try every thing known to man every hour on the hour. It goes like this. We’ll be walking around the mall and we’ll pass an ice-cream store (cold stone anyone?) and I’ll be thinking about how good they taste but keep walking. Then my mom will say, oh, I want some ice-cream. Once she says that it’s bye-bye will power for the vixen. However, I need to work on that.

In case you all are wondering I gained about 20lbs of this weight over this past summer when I was away in Europe for 3 months. Lots and lots of baguettes, croissants, pastries and NUTELLA. I was actually losing weight right before and would like to get back to that mind frame. Growing up, I was skinny but I thought I was fat because I developed faster than my peers and wondered why no one else looked like me. I put on my first significant amount of weight when I got my first job – at McDonald’s. I had no idea what calories where and how much they had in those darn Big Macs and such (I was 15). All I knew was that I was getting free lunch, and sometimes free breakfast and dinner. 3 meals a day at McDonald’s? I shudder to think of what my poor body was saying.

I put on more in college and I guess slowly went up from there. Now it’s time to put a halt to this. My inner vixen must see the light before I am officially middle aged! Like I said earlier, my goal is to be 120lbs or a size 4/5 whichever comes first. It’s vague because I don’t know how much weight I have to lose to be a size 4 but I know i don’t want to be a size 2 or less and I don’t want to weight less than 120.

As this site develops, I think I will have days were I’ll feature sucess stories and other healthy information. If I try anything, I’ll be sure to let you know.

I have had breakfast today and it wasn’t the best. Had a little too many rolls and some sausage but I think I will go swimming today.
