New Year, New Trials and Tribulations, Let’s GO!

Last year was ok until I hit that bad bump. But it is 2017, Happy New Year, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas season, we did. I am excited, and I am back on my diet (way of life) lol. This is my 5th day. Saturday was my second weight in, so I will show both in a moment, but I will tell you, I did gain weight, that is a no brainer after my last post. So here we go (again)~! BUT I also lost weight, so Yay!

I began writing this, last week so I do have an additional weigh-in. I thought about titling my weight status like I did before, but since I won’t be doing one each week, I may just group a few. I really have so much going on, I have to organize my time better. It is so hard, though, I get sidetracked, and that throws me off.

I managed 40 minutes walking on the treadmill today lol, man I miss where I was before, I really screwed up, but I cannot keep kicking myself in the ass over it. I just have to tell myself, I will do better, I know better now.

I noticed I gained a little this last weigh in. I have a cheat day, which I will still keep for sanity reasons lol. But I need to make a habit of not over indulging, or this will defeat the purpose of what I am trying to achieve.

One weigh in left for the month, I will come back with that one, and after that, I will do an update either every 2 weeks or monthly, as I have so many other things I need to do.

Happy New Year, I hope you all succeed in what you would like to accomplish this year! until next time.

Live, Love & Laugh

xoxo

Day 38! Success in 30 Days!

I am so happy to report that after 30 days (even though today is 38 lol). That I lost 28 lbs juicing! I am so so happy, but oh so very hard. Omgosh. I got to the point of feeling depressed, and I didn’t like that feeling. I read that would pass, but it didn’t so when my next 30 days started, we agreed with my fiance that I would do one meal in the evening with him. So with Valentine’s Day approaching, I wanted to spend that time not worrying too much about what I ate. So we had a nice weekend, had Subway, and then on Valentine’s Day he made an amazing dinner. So, because of that, this week, I am only juicing, to make up for the weekend, and 2 lbs I gained BUT hey I am just glad I am able to juice, and get back on track. But I did lose those 28 lbs so that is something.

I have taken pictures of what I have been juicing, you can see those on my Instagram. I’ll leave a post here so anyone interested, can pop on over and check them out!

I hope that link worked, will have to see after I post. In my last post, I had forgotten I wrote that post lol. And then noticed it and thought I better post this today, but post date back to January, wow I cannot believe how time just flies by. Anyway I did post some pictures from my juice making in the other post, but in this one I have the link (that I hope works) to my Instagram. If anyone is so inclined to follow along my journey.

I have come to realize that I will end up having loose skin, which kind of bums me out, but hey I am 51, and well time has taken it’s toll. If I had started early in life doing what I am doing now, then it would of been a different story. I have been watching Skin Tight.

Skin Tight

A TLC TV show about people from all walks of life, that had gone either weight loss surgery, or like myself, did it through diet and exercise. And the aftermath, so many people are so unhappy, they feel as if they are trapped in the same body they were in before, because of the loose skin. I fear that is what will happen to me. In the TV show they undergo plastic surgery, which I am sure is so very expensive, but that is the only way to get rid of the excess skin that hangs loose. How in the world am I going to pay for something like that. I will feel trapped if I don’t do the surgery. I so wish I had known what I know today. I hope one day someone stumbles on my post, and gets inspired to start before it is too late.

I am such a private person, I cannot post pictures of myself, it is too embarrassing, and I just can’t. Call me a coward, oh well. lol. Anyway with that said, I think I will end it here. I have some catching up to do with that show. I think, once I reach a weight I am happy with, I am going to apply to be on that show. I think it is something I need, and will help me. Because the loose skin will get me depressed, I see it already, and I hid it already.

Until next time.
