Lets give this another shot.

My goal is 118 by June.

Yesterday 4/7= Starting weight 136.0. I walked 1.5 miles.

Today 4/8= 135.8 I walked 1.5 miles, went to a barre class...and I plan on walking 1.5 miles when I get home.

I have a treadmill at my house, and a stationary bike...and a bowflex and some weight machines. I got lazy on using the stuff...but I better get some usage out of my machines!

4/9= 134.2

I didn't walk that extra 1.5 miles when I came home last night. I just watched 3 hours of TV instead.

I had some junk food last night, as mindless snacking during TV. My goal is to not it ANY junk food tv. There is a vending machine at work today, so my plan is to avoid buying anything from in there,


Today, I plan on 1.5 miles of walking+ a barre method class.

4/10 = 135.0

The scale went down yesterday, so I thought I could get away with eating pasta and fried chicken and ice cream last night. Oops!

Yesterday I lifted weights and I couldn't find 15 lb weight for my lunges. So I held my 15 lb dog in my arms to do lunges around d the yard. He was quite calm and helpful. He liked being carried like a baby,

Today my plan is to go for a long walk with my dog, a barre class, and maybe some Xbox 360 Fitness game,

4/11=135.2
Yesterday, I ate a carrot for breakfast...and a double bacon cheeseburger as a lunch/dinner. I went to bed at 6 PM and didn't get up until 7 AM this morning. It was my first day of my period, so I was just super tired and didn't feel hungry nor did I feel like working out.

4/12= 134.0
I am going to skip breakfast to give my stomach a little rest from that double bacin cheese burger. I am having a bit of indigestion from that heavy meal.
For lunch, I want to try this new place that has Gf lobster rolls with loads of butter. And for dinner, I am planning on cooking salmon with some almond broccoli and baking a sugarfree flourless chocolate tart .

As for working out, all I feel up too is a walk with my dog. I have some heavy cramping, and I feel like going right back to sleep.

It might not be worth it to weigh yourself while on your period, if you tend to bloat. I haven't had a period in years, so I'm not sure if it would really make a difference or not.

I like your new avatar. Also, we weigh almost the same now. I'm 136. But you are taller than me ;)

I lose weight on/after my period, because my cravings for food reduce. When I am PMsing, god help me. I would rob a bakery truck if I could!
I did 2 lbs in 1 week. I want to keep pushing downwards. I need your guys help, so I don't self sabotage!

My goal is to be 129 by next Saturday. I should have a 3lbs ish natural drop once my period ends. I have dance auditions next Saturday, but I am just trying not to stress too badly about my weight being too high for auditions.Whenever I get stressed, I stress eat...and with your support, this time, I won't stress eat!
I heard they take girls who aren't as fit as they need to be, and put them on weight restriction before the 1st performance in July/August. I am going to dance my butt off, and show them that while I am not the most fit, I dance well. I hope they take a chance on me.

4/11=132.0

Yesterday was a blah day, I walked for 1 mile with my dog and that was about it. My cramps were bad and the midol was making me jittery and gross feeling.

I wish there was a button in the women's body, that you just hit when you wanted to have a baby. Maybe if the body knew it didn't want a baby quite yet, it could stop acting out and bleeding as revenge for not having a baby in me.
I tried several BC's but they just aren't worth the emotional meltdowns I get from them. Maybe I should give that another try, so my periods aren't so freaking bad.
BC pills give me super bad nausea, but I also get nauseated when I ovulate and my period. Maybe I just have a wacky stomach.

I love my Nexplanon (well, used to be called Implanon). Even with the trouble it gave me when I went to get it switched out. The only side effect I've had is no periods. But there can be some pretty bad side effects too.

4/14= 132.6

I just feel so blah today, I haven't worked out in a few days, because I am just so exhausted, I feel like whenever I get my period, I am just so freaking tired.

I have good news that I haven't stress ate this week, even though I am stressed major time. I guess DDN is keeping me accountable.

I basically lost 4lbs this past week and I am super happy about that. I think it will start to slow down, because I know the first few weeks of a new diet tends to drop some water weight. My bf is gone for 3 weeks overseas, so my goal is to be 125 by the time he comes back.
We started to get " comfortable" in the relationship and I started to get self esteem problems, which drove me towards another man. I feel that with this weight loss, I would feel like myself again. I lost control for a while, and I had a totally " F this!" Attitude and I became unhappy. I would just gorge on food because I stopped caring about myself and my own happiness.
My bf saw a difference in me, and he said my personality had shifted. He was super patient with me, and he didn't say a bad thing to me. Even when I slept a long time, snapped at him, and basically acted like a bitch towards him.

I know some women are totally confident and happy in their own skin, but I was happier when I was fit and in shape. All these empowerment movements do nothing for me. I see stomach bloating and I don't think it looks pretty. Which tends to make me emotionally eat because I am sad that I became heavier.
I know some women who are heavier and they look amazing. They have curves in all the right places, and they dress super well. So it isn't that I think fat is " ugly" but I just don't like the way *I* personally look when I am heavier. I think it is because I put weight in my face and stomach, so it just looks weird when I am bigger. I start to double chin when my BMI is 21.0
I guess ethnically. I heard that east asians are at a higher risk for weight related diseases with a lower BMI when compared to other ethnic groups. I just don't have the body frame to be able to carry extra weight gracefully.

Not only do I dislike the way I look, I also feel more sluggish when I am not working out or eating healthy. I feel tired more easily, and I don't have as much energy when I teach my students. I became super constipated and bloated because of my unhealthy food choices. I was miserable at 136 lbs. Not only because I gained 20lbs, but mostly because I just felt physically ill from my food. I got migraines, stomach issues, and ache joints.

I want to get in shape for my own happiness and so I can get the energy levels back that I used to have.

I had some blood work done, and now that I have a better idea or my health overall....I work with my doctor to try and improve some health related dietary issues.
