Summer Time Weight Loss

Officially decided that enough is enough: I have to lose weight and change my lifestyle habits. It’s been a long time coming and I have to fight for real this time. I’ve already cut out soda from my diet (it’s been two months since I’ve done this) so now I’m gonna use Herbalife, portion control, and exercising. I’m so excited to do this, I took the summer off just so I can really focus on my weight loss. It’s time to really document why binge eat and emotionally eat. I want to be happy with not only myself, but to cut this insecurity out of my life once and for all. 

Let’s do this! :)

Starting Weight: 212lbs
Goal Weight Before December: 175
Super Duper Goal Weight: 145
Height: 5′4

Leave all that at home…you won’t need it here

POLE BABIES @ 7pm

Body Image

The other day when I was at the gym, I started to feel self conscious when I was on the treadmill. I began to worry about how much I was sweating, how heavily I was breathing, and what the girl on the elliptical might be thinking about me.

And then I just kept running. And I told myself “you just ran your fastest mile ever!” And I reminded myself to be proud of that.

And to be proud of the body that achieved that.

Honestly, yes I am still big. Yes I still have a long way to go. But my body has been through so much and I am so fucking proud of what I have accomplished with it. I have lost 75 pounds and I have every right to be proud of that! I’ve sweat, cried, struggled, and worked my ass off to create the body I currently have.

And after I thought about that, I realized I didn’t care what the girl might be thinking. If she knew what I’d done, she’d probably be proud of me too!

So I’ve been feeling pretty great about my body this past week. Yes I’m going to have bad body image days, but the point is that I should be proud of what I’ve accomplished and the body that I’ve earned!

so this is my Transformation Tuesday, which is a bit of a throwback. The beginning photo was taken in May at the Harry Potter studios and the last was at the beginning of September, on the last day of the Matt Smith era of the Doctor Who Experience, in work. I think it’s important to look back and take stock of how well I did through the summer, battling a number of issues that at times did break me but I got back up and fought every time. In the last photo I think I was around 14-18lbs down, and I was so proud but it’s not until looking at this comparison I notice just how much of a difference there is especially in my face.
The past few months have been extremely hard. I fell back into the rut I was in during the summer due to completely unfair circumstances, out of my control and in turn have put on around 10lbs of what I lost. But thanks to my amazing work family, my friends and actual family I took on everything in my stride. Weight loss took a back seat for a while but I’m feeling 100% positive and ready to make some more progress. I’d love to see how much I can achieve over the next four months- so I can have a 12 month before and after shot that I can be proud of, even though it won’t be the end of my journey.

I’m a completely different person than I was in that first photo. And things are only just going to get better.
I’d also like to thank lovehealthlift for the support she’s given me since last year. This lady is one of my biggest sources of inspiration and motivation.

I like this picture. I just wish it rang true for me. My family, friends and coworkers can see the change in me and my body but I can’t. I see it on the scale and in the way my clothes fit. I see slightly smaller love handles. But I don’t see the body everyone else does. They go wow. And what are you doing?! I wish I could see that. I still see the over weight me. The one that can’t fit into any of her clothes anymore. The one that juat binged on crappy food because she was bored. I’m not saying I hated myself or my body. I love myself. And my body does amazing things. It’s gotten me to where I am. It’s made me smile and made me cry. But I would never have wished for a skinnier body or a tinier waist. I feel great and right now that’s going to have to be enough for me. Which moat days it is. But I can’t help but get embarrassed and blush when people make comments. Even if they are great to hear!

I AM SO FRIGGIN’ HAPPY that Mark Sisson, founder of the Primal Lifestyle, created this handy, dandy, easy 21 day challenge. 

 I get many questions on what diet I am on well…I am a flexible grok, a term used to describe someone who doesn’t eat grains, legumes, or sugars in the Primal Lifestyle. I am flexible though, meaning that I do allow myself to eat  grains (mungbean noodles, brown rice, rice cakes, and so on), on some days. I also do eat a lot of fruit! which isn’t really allowed on the lifestyle :/ But, oh well, it works for me :)

I love being on the primal lifestyle because it isn’t so restrictive and is 100% effective. I don’t have to spend hours at the gym on this lifestyle and I get to eat BACON! BACON STRIPS&BACONSTRIPS&BACONSTRIPS
