Weigh In Day

Weight on Surgery Date: 269.8 lbs.
Weight last week: 220
Weight Today: 219.2
Weight loss this Week: -0.8 lbs
Weight Loss Total: 50.7

Yay! I'm finally in the 210's, I can't believe it! It's so freaking exhilarating. AND I just had a pretty amazing dinner from Trader Joe's, it was a flounder stuffed with crab meat, OMG! I def. need to go back there asap.

This week is my last week on our longer hours/Fridays off. It's a bit sad, but I'm over the longer hours, so it's good at the same time. I work Monday-Wednesday 7-4:52 and then Thursday I work 7-12:30 (we're getting off early for the holiday) AND I have off Friday/Monday, going to be a nice LONG weekend. Can't wait! Maybe hit up the pool one last time.

I started my volunteering job last Wednesday at the West Shore Y's Child Watch room, I rather enjoyed myself to be honest, plus I get a free membership for it. Woo hoo! Perks, I love them! 

This week my game plan is to go to zumba/weights tomorrow evening after work. Tuesday is my injections, so most likely no exercise. Wednesday is Child Watch, no gym, but plenty of running after kids. :) Thursday = zumba and weights again. And then the one room at the Y is closed for waxing the floors, so no zumba Friday, so I will do it at home/kettlebell. Saturday/Sunday depends on plans at my moms/etc. I will more than likely fit it in somewhere both days. 

Ciao for now!

Weigh In Day

Weight on Surgery Date: 269.8 lbs.
Weight last week: 221.4
Weight Today: 220
Weight loss this Week: -1.4 lbs
Weight Loss Total: 49.8 lbs

Yay! I'm well on my way and so excited to keep up the momentum and get to onederland. 

I went and saw a softball game called Rock n Jock this morning between the Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block. Woo! It was so much fun and they were so freakin' close. I loved it. For only $10, I can't complain.

I have a lot going on this week. Tomorrow I work 7-4:45, then the gym for some zumba and then grocery shopping after that. Tuesday is my orientation for the Child Watch room at the Y, Wednesday I start at the Child Watch room, if everything goes okay. Then Thursday is Brian's gum grafting, so I will be off half a day for that, then I'm off Friday anyways. Busy, busy. Hopefully I can manage to fit in some decent exercise in there somewhere.

Not much else going on, just relaxing and reading some magazines/and my book. Bed and back to the daily grind tomorrow. :(

Ciao for now!

Yummy yummy!

TTT - My first one

Not a big fan of these types, but I'll try it. I'm at work and kind of bored, so here goes nothing:

1. I'm going on a day trip this weekend (either tomorrow or Sat) to Maryland. We are hitting up an Ihop (for my fiance - Cockeysville), then off to the Towson Town Center for some shopping and then right beside that is a Trader Joe's and I plan on stocking up on some good food (all my lap band buddies on FB, etc rave about it). :) Hopefully the weather holds off...

2. I'm more determined then ever to get this weight off, my eating has becomg something I don't recognize sometimes. I've gotten off track, not every single day, but enough that I'm getting discouraged with myself and my choices. I need to stop so much snacking. Onederland is so close I can taste it, yum!

3. I'm wearing a pair of size 20 jeans today, not super comfortable, but MUCH better than anything I've ever worn before. And I'm actually sitting in them at work (which I used to hate, because of the lovely rolls that like to hang out if the jeans fit weird). They are Levi's comfort waistband. LOVE them, they are a free hand me down from my bestie's fiance's mom. :) She's losing weight too, and is a bit ahead of me, so keeps passing me her clothes (some of which were never worn and with tags still on).

4. I'm going to be starting at the Y next week doing Child Care Watch on Wed or Thurs evenings from 5:30-8:30. For volunteering 3 hours each week, I get a free membership. Yay! Plus, I love kids. Just don't want any right now, till this weight is off and I'm married next October.

5. Only 2 more weeks of working our weird summer hours at work. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE having off every Friday for 8 weeks, but man, the longer hours on Mon-Thurs are killing me. I'm so tired all day long, yawning constantly. Today is actually the best day so far. Oh well.

6. Yesterday was probably my best eating day in a while. I ate 1,336 total calories, breakfast was 365 (including vitamins), lunch was 250, dinner was 243 and my snacks were 478 (skinny cow candy bar, string cheese, beef stick, granola and half of a luigis ice). My exercise was zumba for an hour and I burned 461 calories. And I had 80 oz. of water. For a total net calorie count of 875. :D

7. I've been feeling down lately, not really sure why. I've also had a ton of anxiety lately too, even being on my pills, I get anxious sometimes. I notice it when I pick the skin on my feet/fingers. It's awful. But it's better than the attacks I used to get on a daily basis.

8. I got tickets to go see NKOTBSB play baseball at the Senator's Metro Bank Park field this Sunday. Going with my bestie, her mom and my mom. Tickets are only $10 and you get to see some hot men in tight pants up close and personal. And I'm hoping that maybe there will be some sort of meet n greet.

9. Something random for the week, I've been really into entering giveaways this week, haven't won anything yet (most haven't ended yet), but it's fun and addictive. I'm hoping I win some nail polish or something at least. :)

10. Last, but not least, I'm reading a new series of books by J.R. Ward called "The Black Dagger Brotherhood", their very good so far, I'm on Book 2. I recommend them to anyone that enjoys vampires and some romance.

Ciao for now!

Weigh In Day

Weight on Surgery Date: 269.8 lbs.
Weight last week: 222.2
Weight Today: 221.4
Weight loss this Week: - .8
Weight Loss Total: 48.4 lbs! 

Yay! I finally lost! Woo hoo, three weeks at 222.2 was nerve wracking! Ugh! Major wake up sign to get my shit together. No more fudge, no more awful late night snacking, unless it's something decently healthy. 

Planning on lots of exercise this week. Tomorrow = zumba 530-630, Tuesday = zumba at home, Wednesday = zumba 530-630 and weights, thursday = zumba 530-630, friday = zumba (10-11am or 430-530). Things always come up, but I will fit this in or find something else to do. 

Still working our summer hours at work M-F 7-453 and off on Fridays (this is my schedule), it makes for some damn long days, but I sure do enjoy my Fridays off. :)

Off I go, not much else to say. Ciao for now!

Weigh In Day

Weight on Surgery Date: 269.8 lbs.

Weight last week: 222.2
Weight Today: 222.2
Weight loss this Week: -0
Weight Loss Total: 47.6 lbs
No biggie. I am actually VERY surprised that I haven't gained over the last week. I ate awful this past week during vacation. :( I'm not happy with myself. But we walked a ton and rode a bike for an hour the one morning. And my awesome period came yesterday full force and I'm eating like it's going out of style the past 2 days. :( Ugh!
Today didn't started off all that great, found out my car ran out of gas, I got locked out (a friend of ours has my key, she checked on Bella while we were gone), Brian is sick (and didn't hear my knocking, calling, doorbell,etc.), I was 30 mins late to work. I now have to skip my lunch because of this, grrr! So, I now have to borrow a gas can from a guy at work, get gas and fill my stupid car up after I get home. Then I have to get my list/coupons together and get some stuff at Giant for the week. I need to get my food back on track stat. :/ Not proud of myself at all.
That's all for now. I will hopefully try and get in some zumba at home tonight.
