WTH Happened?

Ok ... so I'm not a beached whale (yet) but wow have I put on the fat somewhere. I'll weigh in first thing tomorrow morning so I know exactly where I'm at but I'm sure I will be looking at the 200's ... AGAIN!!!!

I'm going to be posting what I eat and the activity I get in ... I have to keep myself accountable & unless I'm posting here it seems that I just go on about my merry way not concerning myself with my weight. I tell myself that as long as I can still fit in my clothes then I must be at least maintaining. Then again, I don't want to maintain this weight ... I want to be at my goal weight. Somehow around August I just took the I don't give a crap attitude. I was sick to death of watching every bite & step day in & day out. I tend to obsess over such things. It's not good ... but then again maybe keeping a closer eye on my progress would have kept me from looking the way I do today.

So ... per Rena's suggestion of wearing an outfit that we love now & then taking a pic when we lose 5-10 pounds here is mine. The suit fit me great, but the under shirt was a little snug. I didn't take the jacket off all morning for fear I would pop a button or that I would look down & see those undesirable gaps.

Currently I'm wearing a size 16 jean, XL shirts, 38DD bra (really too snug). I'm only walking about 1.5 miles a day 4-5 times a week and I'm not watching what I eat at all.

Food today: HUGE home made biscuit, with chicken gravy, tall glass of milk, & 4 cups of coffee for breakfast. Lunch ... we went to Chinese after church. I had lo mien noodles, sweet & sour chicken with the sauce, sugar biscuit, 2 glasses of tea. Snack was peanut brittle with a glass of milk. Dinner ... 2 burritos ... the frozen kind ... very unhealthy with a dollop of fat free sour cream. You'll notice no water. I haven't had more then 4 glasses a day in months. What's wrong with me?

Goal ... I want to be 2-5 pounds lighter by Thanksgiving. I want to be 10-15 pounds lighter by Christmas morning ... 15 pounds lighter by New Years day.


  1. Don't even get me started......The weight just keeps piling on me.

    Have a good week and I know you'll make your weight goals.

  2. Well I am looking at this picture of you and you dont even look heavy at all! I think you have a thin face, lucky you! I have a chunky face so although we are nearly exactly the same size I appear heavier in the big fat head and face area! Ha ha
    Or are taller?!!
    Thanks for commenting my skinny101 blog, I appreciate it. I am trying to decide what would be a good goal, 20 lbs by Christmas? That would be awesome, but I dont know if its feasable. Maybe 10.
    Anyway, nice to meet you!
