I feel like crap.
I know I’ve been eating pretty poorly for the last several days and I feel like it. I also weighed myself this morning and was up several pounds. On top of that, I had a bunch of chocolate and gummy candies last night and thought that I was gonna throw up several hours later. Why do I keep doing this to myself? -.- And, ya know what? I’m super excited to be going to Mandarin with my parents on Easter and stuffing my face. *sigh*
In other (slightly good) news, I got a 15 cent raise at work. And then, in June, minimum wage goes up, so I’ll be making another $1/hr once that happens.
Ok, that’s all.

Never really realized how much fat was inbetween organs too!
This is why people shouldn’t get discouraged when they first start losing weight. Its not gonna come off your tummy and thighs first its gonna come off between the organs.. where it shouldn’t be!
These visualizations are some of my biggest short-term motivators. They help me remember that a lot of the physical changes that occur from healthy habits are in parts we can’t see.
I couldn’t agree with Risa more. It’s easy to get discouraged when you feel like your hard work isn’t yielding any results, but things like this help me to remember that progress isn’t always visible. But that certainly doesn’t mean it isn’t occurring.
Ms. Cupcake doesn’t want your shit
I have a problem…
I’m not the girl your mother warns you about.
I won’t kiss your best friend or break your heart.
I won’t make you choose between what you love to do & me.
I’m not cold. I’m not reckless.
I’m the girl your father mentions when your mom’s not around.
I’m the girl that gets away.
I will love you more than anything.
I will kiss you when you cry.
I will stand by your side until you decide otherwise.
And you’re just like your father, so you will.
You’ll let me go & I won’t look back,
But you will.
I promise you, you will.
I’m that girl.
how to lose 3 inches off your waist— super quick, easy, and healthy
Yep, I went from a 31” waist to a 28” waist overnight. Literally. Overnight. All I did was go to bed.
We are always comparing our worst to the best of others, and we don’t take the time to appreciate our bodies in less than our perception of ideal states. I love when people post photos comparing their morning tummy to their bloated after dinner tummy because this encourages not being ashamed of our tummies in their constant flux & flow. It’s easy to look at ourselves after a big meal and think we are “fat”, that food has turned us into a whale and we become scared to eat more food. Fuck that. Appreciate the ability of your intestines and stomach to expand as you fill it with nourishment, as it hugs your food and absorbs its nutrients. Never go to bed hungry. Eat past 7. Eat at 2am. Eat whenever you are hungry, and stop when you are satisfied. Trust the intuitive nature of your body and it will treat you like the goddess you are. light & love xx
I like this. Because people gonna really think she lost something quick too and all she did was let her body do what it needs to do.
I’m here for this.
Why do I keep going for long periods of time without blogging? If was this lazy in my weight loss, I wouldn’t be as far as I am.
Anyway, let’s get down to business. So, my birthday was this past Tuesday. I went out clubbing on Saturday night and then had a big dinner out on Wednesday. Both events were fun and it was nice to be able to hang out with some friends I don’t get to see very often. I wasn’t able to reach a mini weight goal I had set for myself for my BDay, but I got pretty close. I’m now bouncing between having lost 23-25lbs in total. I guess this is why you’re only supposed to weigh yourself like once a week. Otherwise, your weight can be all over the place and it’s hard to see the progress. But I really shouldn’t complain. Slow and steady still wins the race.
I was talking to a friend recently who’s been working on losing weight after having a baby and she just got to her goal weight. She looks good and all that and it got me thinking about my current goal weight. If I have approximately 6lbs left to lose and about 10lbs lost equals a dress size smaller, I’m definitely gonna have to re-evaluate my goal once this is all said and done. Like, I’ll probably set myself a new goal of losing another 10lbs and then another 10 after that, instead of setting myself the daunting task of having to lose another 20-25 in one shot. I feel like I can do it. I just know it’s only gonna get harder from here.
I think that now that all my birthday stuff has calmed down, it’s time to refocus and really put a lot more effort into my weight loss, but mostly, just the eating properly. Lots of healthy stuff is gonna be on sale in the coming weeks and months. And I really need to stop looking at menus when I go out to eat. I know the healthier options for all the restaurants I frequent. I just need to order a salad ASAP so I’m not tempted by other delicious things. And I need to keep reminding myself that all my cravings are just cravings. I can live without them and try to not be an emotional bitch when I don’t have chocolate or ice cream. Seriously. lol
I think that’s all I’d like to say right now. REALLY gonna try hard to post something at least every few days. Even if it’s very short. Alright everyone, enjoy your weekend. :)
