Back on track!

Hey everyone!!! 
I've been slacking big time these past few weeks, but I've finally bounced back! I weighed-in this morning at 197.6 !!!

Also I've been speaking with a lot of retired military people (actually I work with the military every day), because surprise surprise, I'm considering joining the Air Force. I've been thinking about this for a while now and I do believe that it would be a great choice for me.

Now I just have to worry about getting in tip top military shape so that Basic Military Training/Basic Combat Training (BMT/BCT) wont be so rough. (yea right! They're going to stick their boots wear the sun don't shine)

Late Weigh-in Monday

So this past Saturday I had my colon cleaned...

No, I didn't use laxatives or water pills etc. I had my colon cleansed by a colonic machine. 

The most awkward experience I have ever been given the opportunity to experience. Firstly before you go into a secluded room the therapist explains the purpose of colon cleansing and certain benefits, and what could happen after improper caring of your colon. After the explanation you are ushered into a room where you are told to strip down to just your bra (for the ladies/naked for the males; talk about awkward O_o) you are given lubricant to lube up your rectum. You are to then insert a plastic tube up your butt plug. Once that is finish you are then instructed to turn on the flow of water.

(Colonic Machine)

I felt pressure in my stomach (kinda like OMG I ate too much ugh my tummy hurts). You squeeze/hold until you can't take the pressure anymore then release. My sister actually got dehydrated and felt nauseous so I guess the experience is different for everyone.

Supposedly you have 20 bowel movements within the 45 minute time span. I'm just going to say that it was awkward and I won't be planning on doing that ever again. 

Here is a link to the website Natural Wellness if you want to check it out.


If you've managed to read this far your probably thinking "Uhh I thought she was going to talk about her weigh-in" and you are absolutely correct. But there's not really much to talk about. I've become a major disappointment to myself, I've allowed myself to fall way off track.
What took me 5-6 weeks to lose I've gained back within 1-2 weeks. I've just gone out of control with my eating/not eating and for a moment, I just didn't care.

I've noticed some negative changes with my body; My stomach is getting bigger, my face is starting to look fat again, and I feel tired more often (although I'm not sure if that's from working or what?).
As I stated in my last post 242 is not an option, although with the way I've been eating and not exercising, I've been setting myself up with a first class ticket to fattysville, population: me.  So if you guys could please give me a nice hard solid kick in the rear I think I can back on track.

Monday's weight: 201.4

Thursday's weight: 203.0 (at 12:44 am)

I'm not proud of this, it's actually very depressing and I'm going to try really hard to get myself out of this funk, because I've come to far to go back now.

Hope everyone has a great week end!

Weigh-in Monday

Hey everyone! Well no time for idle chit chat lets get down to business. I've done a full back slide right on up to 198.8

I'm very disappointed with this weigh-in, but it was to be expected. My eating (or lack of there of) hasn't been on point, I can't remember the last time I went to the gym, and I've gone from drinking (7) 20oz bottles of water to (3) 20oz bottles of water if that much in one day.

These past couple of weeks have been hectic with me getting a new job and working for a week, then I resigned because I wasn't able to handle the position, but I was offered another position (with the same company) the same day which pays more and is only part-time, so YAY! Finally something everyone can cheer about. 

Wish this post could have been about a loss but we all have our moments. 

So even though I've gained some weight back, I have not given up on this journey. Once I get used to my new schedule I will get back into my exercise routine and good eating habits.

Hope everyone has a Great week!!!

Weigh-in Monday/Update

Hey everyone!!! I feel like I've been gone forever! But let me explain.... *Drum Roll plz*

I got a job and I freaking HATE IT!

LOL you would think I'd be happy about this but NO! I fuel airplanes, making close to minimum wage....

I feel so over worked, and my body has been hurting since I started,  feels like someone turned the heat up on hell outside, gas gets on my skin constantly, I have to constantly lift a 100lb hose, I haven't work out in idk how long, my eating has fallen to $h!t levels and this has been the longest week of my life.

When I b**** to other people all they can say is. "Well at least you have a job" or "You'll lose weight working outside in the sun" Uhhh what the ****??? (<----- insert bad word here) Why would I want to bust my @$$ everyday slaving for minimum wage outside when I can go to the gym like I've been doing??

It's not like I hate it just because it physical, because I've done warehouse work before but come on now! I'm around gas, which is FLAMMABLE, I lift heavy crap, I'm around loud nose all day (seriously have ya ever been around an airplane when the jets are still on?), I work outside and that's like walking into an oven and I my pay starts with a freaking 7/hr...... who wouldn't be pissed off?!

So enough of my complaining, what I really wanted to tell everyone was that I will be moving my weigh in's from Sunday to Monday since it seems like I will be working every weekend now, plus I have to get up at 3:00am to make it to work on time for 5:00am umm yea I won't be thinking about no dang scale that early in the morning lol besides I'm not sure if that would even be an accurate number.

YAY for weigh in Mondays! Speaking of which it's Monday now! I currently weigh 194.2lbs and lost 1.6lbs this week, I'm happy that I lost, but I'm happy about how I had to lose it.

Also I've been seriously thinking about joining the military, more specifically the Air Force. Anyone have any thoughts on that? Or any advice so that I can prepare for bootcamp? I know I'm still too heavy and I can't run, do push ups or pull ups but I want to work on that. Heck I figure if I'm going to be treated like crap might as well get paid for it right?

Happy Holiday Everyone!!! Be Safe and Enjoy!

Weigh-in Sunday

SUPER LATE POST!!! Sorry you guys! I'll try to make this good!

After my crappy weigh-in last week I would like to happily report that I have lost 3.6lbs this week. YAY! I'm currently weighing in at 195.8lbs, that's 47lbs lost total and I've reached my next reward goal!

I was supposed to get a pedicure but I changed my mind and decided to get the 

Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30 dvd 

and some Sports bra's to reward myself    

Although I somewhat feel that this loss is undeserved, don't get me wrong I'm very happy but, last week for me was a total BUST! I only exercised twice and I was not drinking my water like I was supposed so this takes me into:

Since I've hit 199 I've gotten in this comfort zone... I've gotten cozy, and haven't really been motivated to exercise. I realize that my journey is far from being over (I still got another 30-40 pounds to go!), it's time (waaaay past time) to get my self out of this funk and start back putting in some hard work!

Goal 1. Exercise at least 4 days this week  (This will be the hardest, since I've starting training)
Goal 2. Drink 7 20oz bottles of water everyday!
Goal 3. Incorporate weights into my routine.

Hope everyone has a Great Week!

Stuck like Chuck

I've been such a bad blogger! I'm sorry you guys, my Hiatus is finally OVER! 
On to other news, this weight has been rocking the boat! SERIOUSLY. But before I get into that I'd like to report that my birthday weekend was fabulous! Mom bought me a Wii and I've been clocking in game time since.

So of course everything was just fine and dandy until I stepped on the scale Sunday morning. . .

I wanted to scream, pull my hair out then throw the scale in front of a moving bus! It was bad, and the messed up thing about it was that I ate healthy the whole week (preparing for my birthday) and I got in my exercise so I don't know what the deal was. I did wake up feeling bloated and my stomach looked bigger, But seriously!? One day of eating hot wings and diet coke shouldn't have done that to me.

Whatever the reason, I've fallen off track, with my exercise, pretty much after Sunday I was thought to myself forget it! I'm better now (somewhat) I guess. . . does this happen to be the dreaded plateau affect?!? (aka: Stuck like chuck moment)

Does anyone have any suggestions to overcome this? If so PLEASE LET ME KNOW! 
NSV Alert! I jogged 15 mins @ 4.2 on the treadmill Tuesday! I felt so accomplished and I have the jello legs to prove it! I even felt like I could have gone longer but I didn't want to push myself too hard.

and just because I <3 everyone here are some updated progress pics!

Is it just me or am I the only person who loses weight from the bottom up?? GAH! I feel so unproportionate now. My legs and butt have slimmed down while my stomach continues to do it's own thing (UGH! It's the most frustrating thing ever!!!). Boobs are practically nonexistent now, arms are getting flabby, what's a girl to do?

P.S. I know my pictures suck! But it's hard trying to find a great photographer. LOL
