One Day at a Time

 I’m taking it one day at a time,
and I’m getting by.
And by the way,
It’s you on my mind.

Another Bittersweet Ending

It's Sunday, the end of yet another week. Another successful week. That makes 2 good weeks in a row, with only 2 days that were slightly over my calorie goals. My weight today was nothing to cheer about, but nothing to cry about either. I haven't gained or lost a single ounce since yesterday, but it seems like the right way to end the week. Besides, last night I had a taco and those always make me bloat, so not gaining is the best I could have asked for. :)

Unfortunately the storm last night made the power go out, so my post didn't go through, but I promise I won't post 3 entries today! Hehe

So, being a fat girl, I've never owned a pair of skinny jeans or a mini skirt. Never. Not a single one. I think that when I get to 105 lbs I will buy a pair of skinny jeans, and at 100 (if my legs look good enough) I will buy a mini skirt. What do you ladies think? My budget permitting, that is. lol Also, several sets of very frilly lingerie. I have pretty bras and panties of course, but I want to go all-out and get some matching sheer nighties and garter belts and stockings, some new corsets, the whole nine yards. Mmm lingerie shopping!! Can't wait!!

Also I pretty much have a moving-out date now, and it's not nearly as soon as we had hoped but it's still next month. If I had to push it to June I might have dismembered someone. It's just going to be the end of May. In terms of my love life, that sucks a little. In terms of my diet, it's awesome. I now know I have most of next month to continue losing/staying on track.

All in all if I keep eating and losing the way I have been, maybe May will be all about toning and maintaining! I mean, I don't know how much I lost last week, but this week I've lost about 4lbs. So, two weeks of similar success and I should be down to 101 or close, if not 100... April 30th is exactly two weeks away, so by the end of April I may very well be at 100. And I can spend May learning how to maintain, seeing how much I can eat, finding some good workouts and fixing up areas of my body that need it.

I'm more than certain I can do it, I just don't know what situations may arise to force me to eat more. There aren't any birthdays but there's talk of "Lobster Fest" at Red Lobster... The worst place ever for calorie-phobic people. But other than that, I'm not seeing too many issues.

I think a big part of succeeding is expecting to succeed.
Because it seems like when I expect to fail, I'm more likely to give in to bad foods.

It's so weird though, to feel this close... I mean it just seemed like I would be stuck in that struggle perpetually and now I seem to have the perfect method down for losing, I'm totally ready for this, everything is just falling into place so perfectly. 

I understand the closer you get to being underweight the harder it gets, so things may not go that smoothly, but even if they don't I've got lots of time now to get there.

This is the longest I've been away from my boy in well over a year...
I hope that at the end of next month when he sees me he will be blown away!

Hope you ladies had a good weekend and here's to the success of next week! <3

  1. Congratulations on the loss!
    Your right, it does get harder the closer you get, but you are strong, so you can do it :)
    Stay strong,

  2. I'm so proud of you! You're doing awesome! I'm going to update today since I haven't posted in two days, but I've definitely been logging on just to check in on your progress! I'm so very happy for you! You should try MyFitnessPal. I didn't think I would like it at first, but it seriously is such a motivation. I just added the "Kesha" station to my Pandora radio & it is SUCH a good station to workout to! You should try it! I can't wait to hear from you! Good luck!
