LilySlim - Weight loss

Sunday, September 30, 2012

Looking back..

I was thinking a lot lately about this journey I’ve been on for the last 7 months or so

::pause:: Hold up…7 months! Holy Cow, this is the longest I’ve stuck to ANYTHING besides marriage….lol….pat on the back…..

Like I was saying, so I was thinking about all that I have accomplished and been through, and I am so glad I stuck to it. If I can give any type of advice, as hard as it may be or seem, you CAN do it. I’m not saying that to be cheesy or whatever. I’m saying that because, If I can do it, you CAN! I was the epitome of not sticking to a diet.

 If you looked up    *will never finish a diet/weight loss program for more than a week* in the dictionary,  my picture will be by it 

la·zy

[ley-zee] Show IPA adjective, la·zi·er, la·zi·est, verb, la·zied, la·zy·ing.
adjective
1.averse or disinclined to work, activity, or exertion; indolent.
2.causing idleness or indolence: a hot, lazy afternoon.
3.slow-moving; sluggish: a lazy stream.





[may name should also be by the word lazy, 7 monthes ago, my hobbies included. Coming home and eating donuts, cakes, fast food, and watching TV]

Now, I do although agree that there is a time and a place for everything. Not trying to make excuses for myself (haha),  but I do believe that I just wasn’t ready. It had not clicked yet. I didn’t WANT to be overweight, but at the same time, I did not want to do the work. It was hard. And I was lazy. End of story.

Which is sad because I wasted so many years of my life being unhappy and un healthy and lazy.
This has been crazy hard, and annoying. But I’m glad I stuck to it because if I didn’t, I would be saying “ I wish I would’ve stuck to it because I would be only 20 lbs till my goal weight.”

Omg. Yes I said it. I am 20 lbs.  well actually 19lbs away from my goal weight of 165. I have lost 66 lbs in 7 monthes. Crazy beans!!! I want to share some of my stats. And I encourage everyone else to do this as well. Post yours in my comments or add in your own blog, or do on your own for your eyes only. Which ever you choose, It is a real eye opener and has helped me keep going. Sometimes the mirrior or photos or even the scale just dont do you justice. So for me, all these other things really do help me see i HAVE done good.
Then
Now
See, Today When I looked in the mirror, I see what all I still have to work on, but looking at this, I'm amazed with all I've already done. Its a game changer!
And my boobs shrinking is bitter sweet, I'm sure you know what I mean, they are a hassle and heavy and get in the way of everything lol, so I'm glad I went down a cup size! But I hope they don't get too little or I'm afraid I'll look weird. only because I'm so used to myself with them. haha

So My weigh in was sabotaged by my scale....my scale went on the fritz. Gave me 4 different readings and then blew up. lol. seriously though. I will get a new one before Saturday's weigh in.

And Tomorrow Is OCTOBER!!! I'm soooo excited! October brings....My husbands b-day, our first date(and when we became official) anniversary (8 years ago!!!), Halloween, and tomorrow marks the  first day of the "Being Jillian Micheal's Biotch!" challange.

Before I go I will share some randoms....

My old jeans(20w) Vs. My New Jeans(12)



















As promised, me in my new size 12



















Cooked for the hubby! This was on pinterest. Chicken cheese lasagna roll ups. He actually Loved it.
























Well Hope everyone has a wonderful Monday and happy October 1st!!!!

  2. Well "Lazy" must have now been replaced with "incredible"!! I agree that seeing the measurements helps really emphasise the scale of the overall changes you've made. (I need to find mine and compare sometime) :)

    1. aw thanks! I can still be lazy though, but the difference is, i feel bad being lazy now. If I just went by what the mirror or photos said, Id still be struggling, because even now, they lie!

      Thank you again!! Have a wonderful monday!
