weight loss

I’ve been eating like complete crap lately. I’ve gained. I’m a cow. I literally need y’all to motivate me this week like heck because I’m starting fresh tomorrow and I need to stay on track this month. If anyone wants to message me to keep each other motivated feel free to!

Not quite sure why, but I am down another pound!

Stepped on the scale this morning and I am down to 260.4lbs.  I haven’t been able to work out in over a week as I am still sick.  I am still eating.  I don’t know why I am down so much.  I even noticed when I put my jeans on this morning that there was a lot of room around the waste and they sit much lower on my hips now.  

This HIIT workout is a burner! Work off that Thanksgiving indulgence! There is not a single repeat exercise in the whole routine. it’s the ultimate workout for people with little time who want results.

The Yoyo
25 November 2017

Well, not a lot has changed on the goal weight front over the past two years has it? I’ve gone up. I’ve gone down. I am pretty right much back where I started, give or take a few grams. I have shed 2kg since the beginning of November, which is in line with my 500g/week goal. But my fat percentage has risen slightly; which could be under-hydration or the catabolic effects of prednisolone.

Now that I am sustaining a largely alcohol-free lifestyle, and have ditched pre-dinner snacking as a result, I feel that I can achieve that strong, fit 59kg goal weight, with the right muscle-building program. That will require more discipline and dedication to resistance training, which has been haphazardly ‘between clients’ lately. Of course I must also balance energy levels and the toll taken by an autoimmune illness.

I don’t see the festive season as a problem to be honest. Sticking to two glasses of wine at last night’s gathering was easy. I can see the day when I won’t even be bothered with that for the most part. It’s like sugary food, when you don’t eat it, you find you don’t like it. In fact, it becomes repellent. A dinner guest brought a pretty gift box of biscuits the other night. Rob & I had one with afternoon tea the next day and both found them horribly sickly and overpowering. We binned them because we decided we didn’t want to offer them to anyone we cared about.

On the subject of the festive season, I engaged in a brief, targeted Christmas shopping foray yesterday. On the way out, I popped into a favoured dress shop for a quick look, being Black Friday sales and all. I loved the red dress straight away but felt so comfy and free in the green culottes outfit - I know I will wear it all summer. I texted mirror selfies to my daughter for approval and bought both!

Yesterday I went to hang out with my girlfriends Family for thanksgiving, and as soon as I got there they all commented on how much weight I’ve lost and how good I look. I’m happy others are finally noticing my hard work ❤️💪🏻 and I’m glad I finally am able to wear this shirt without feeling like I look awful.

Well. I joined a gym.

I also went for my first workout today. It was good. I had to take it easy because of my knee but I did 15 minutes on the elliptical and 15 minutes on the bike.

I can’t wait to get back to the treadmill.
I had a lot of anxieties about a coed gym so Jesse went with me. I think this is a good move for both of us.

We go for walks together but he’s more in shape than me. Walking at 3MPH isn’t going to push him enough to get in better shape.

So this is day 1. And this is my before picture. 272 pounds.
