Weigh-in: 10/24/2011

Yes!!!!  This is after being out of town for work for 5 days, being off my game and not exercising. I also ate breakfast this morning before I thought to weigh in. I am determined to kick 30lbs in the butt before Christmas.   And I'm not really that ashy, I guess it's the flash, lol. At least that's my story and I'm sticking to it. :)

Are you still with me??

So if you aren't a personal friend of mine, you probably think that I've dropped off the face of the Earth. I haven't, but I have been hanging onto the side of the weight loss wagon, with one hand, and only my pinky finger...and it was slipping, lol. Honestly, I haven't lost any weight lately, and have been gaining and losing and gaining the same 5-6lbs all summer. I decided to fully re-commit myself to this journey and I start (officially) back on Weight Watchers tomorrow.

I hope I haven't lost you and I hope you will come back and check on me from time to time. I'll start back with my weigh-in posts on Mondays as of tomorrow. See you then!!

Weigh-in: 06/27/11

First things first, huh?

So, I'm back.  I've been out of the game (but not totally off the wagon) for months now and I'm back at it.  I can say that while I've been gone, I have NOT been eating any/everything, but I also haven't been actively trying to lose weight.  I've exercised in spurts and I feel like my body is actually changing (I'll take some body shots later this eve), but as you can see, I'm at virtually the same weight I was 3 months ago.  I'm okay with that.  Well, not "okay" with it, but I'm happy that I haven't gained any weight to speak of.

Now, for those that don't know, I've started a personal weight loss page on Facebook.  I would love if you were to come interact with me there.  I plan on getting back into the swing of things with the blog and post at least twice a week, but I will probably be on Facebook a lot more and I'd love to interact with you guys!!!  Please friend me there.  My name is "Sista Fattycakes"  :D

Thanks for those of you who emailed or hit me up on FB to check on how I was doing.  Love you guys and thanks for the support.  Let's go!!!!

Hiatus is up...kinda...

Hey Lovelies!

I have been SO busy these days. I just got back from a wedding in Houston weekend before last, and now I'm prepping to go to SC this weekend for my Bestie's "surprise" shower. It's no longer a surprise, hence the quotes. Unfortunately, her Aunt died unexpectedly yesterday and we were all thrown for a loop 1) I'd just spoken to the Aunt the night before and I was so broken up. She was such a sweet, sweet lady. 2) Bestie's mom, who is helping with the shower was understandably devastated, so we weren't sure if we should cancel the shower or not. Later that day, Bestie was at the Aunt's house to find paperwork for her mother and she was told about the shower by a friend (who didn't know it was a surprise). I'm kind of glad it came out though, because know that burden is lifted regarding whether or not we should still do it. It would be different if we all lived in the same city or if we were doing it at someone's home, but since we aren't, we decided to press on. So if you pray, please say a short one for my friend's family as they go through this.

On to weight loss. AF's evil ass has been in town since late Thursday, so I decided to put off weighing until 4/25. Since I will still be in SC on Monday and probably won't be coming back to Maryland until Tuesday (depending on when the service is), I will just wait until 4/25 to weigh-in. I was dreading weighing myself during AF, so I just decided...not to. LOL

I have realized something though, I believe monthly weigh-in's might be the way to go for me. I can definitely tell in other ways (I'm having some chubby face days lately) if I'm doing what I'm supposed to be doing. I haven't quite decided yet though. I'm still excited about fitting into smaller new clothes and sizing out of some of the clothes I have. My coworker actually told me my jeans looked sloppy last week, lol. I was too excited to be offended. HA! I hope you all are doing well!

Oh, and I MUST get back on my exercise game. I think that I will try to post every other day or so what I'm doing as far as my exercise regimen. I need to be accountable and right now, I've been making every excuse not to go to the gym. There's no such thing as too busy, right?

What it do, Boos???

Shouts out to "Thirteenlbs" and "Candisias" and "WatchMiiLose" for always checking in on me. I really appreciate it!

Well, I'm still on my scale hiatus, but I've been doing pretty good. While I don't feel like I've lost much weight, I must have lost inches because I am officially down a dress size.

I usually wore a size 24 dress, sometimes a 26 depending on the "give" in the bust/hip areas, but I successfully rocked a NON-STRECH (lol) size 22 dress to a wedding in Houston this past weekend. Wanna see me?

I'm happy with how I looked, but even in my joy about being down a dress size, I know that I have to step up my game in the arm exercise area. The flab is out of control, lol. The thing that I'm most excited about is that I'm not wearing ANY shapewear, just some regular underthings. LOL!! For me...that's MAJOR!

My hiatus is supposed to be up on this coming Monday, and honestly, I'm not looking forward to meeting the scale, but I guess I will, so I can better guage my progress.

I really appreciate you all checking on me, and I'll try to do better. I have SOO much going on in the next few weeks (I will be able to expound later), but I will try to do better. I've even neglected my "regular" blog. Shameful. *waves* I hope everyone is doing well!!
