Yikes! Been so busy and dealing with a lot.. Haven't been weighing myself diligently...
Fell off the wagon last weekend. Went out for fried chicken and beer. Shame shame, but I was good to get right back on the next day tho it was freaking hard with my all or nothing binge mentality. "You've ruined it anyway, so why not go all out...." I can't even count how often I fall into this destructive behavior (I'm sure many bingers/emotional eaters can relate) and I fought tooth and nail to not repeat it this time. And I prevailed!!! I'm very proud of myself for that.
I had two glasses of beer and I felt pretty buzzed. What was so crazy is that I was able to more objectively analyze the effect alcohol has on me. I felt this rush (b/c alcohol goes straight to your bloodstream), which is a feeling that I usually enjoy very much (somehow similar to eating something sweet)....but I could also recognize the danger behind it. Because I enjoy the "feeling", I tend to drink a lot when I start. Now the frequency varies and has never been too frequent, so that is not an issue, but the inability to portion control is problematic.
However, this time, because it was my first drink in a long time, my tolerance was much lower and the rush was almost borderline unpleasant, which made me realize how much I need to reconsider my attitude toward alcohol.

Also, not smoking is going really well. Haven't really felt the urge, so I don't even think about it much these days...

Weight wise, I haven't been able to weigh myself at the usual time, so I have no idea really, but it probably went up quite a bit from last weekend and is perhaps slowly coming down again. Unfortunately, I don't think it ever hit the 140's after that one day. Booo... Oh well, perhaps after this weekend. (Must be strong!!!!) All is all, considering that I'm going through a high stress period in terms of work and projects (although it'll get worse for the next 2-3wks..Yikes!!!), I think I'm juggling everything pretty well. I must stay on course for the next 2-3wks! I can do it! Holy spirit, help me be strong!

Thanks, She! I'll try but I doubt it since I have a lot that I need to get done.


OK, so back to tracking....


72.5kg/ 160 lbs -1/27
71.8 kg/ 158.3 lbs - 1/28
71.8 kg/ 158.3 lbs - 1/29
71 kg / 156.5 lbs - 2/2
70.7 kg/ 155.9 lbs - 2/3
69.7 kg/ 153.7 lbs - 2/4 (walked to work)
69.8 kg/ 153.9 lbs - 2/5 (treadmill)
69.9 kg/ 154.1 lbs - 2/6 (a busy day. Will be walking a lot!) (TOM:b)
70.1 kg/ 154.5 lbs - 2/8 (walked)
69.6 kg /153.4 lbs -2/10 (walk)
69 kg / 152.1 lbs - 2/11 (walk a lot; 20min of Taebo Bootcamp)
68.5 kg/ 151.0 lbs - 2/12 (nothing ) (TOM:e)
68.7 kg/ 151.4 lbs - 2/13 (walk)
68.8 kg/ 151.7 lbs - 2/14 (walk)
? / ? - 2/15-18 (nothing )
68.6 kg/ 151.2 lbs - 2/18 (maybe try Brazilian Butt Lift ???)
68 kg/ 149.9 lbs - 2/19
69.6 kg/ 153.5 lbs - 2/22
69.1 kg/ 152.3 lbs - 2/28

yes, so obviously, not doing too great. Argghh, but hey it's ok, because I'm in it for the long haul!
Although the weight has pretty much stayed the same (or a little up from the lowest... ) I feel skinnier! I can finally notice the difference in my arms and face. My jawline is definitely more pronounced and upper arms/shoulder area is less bulky! Can't wait to see a difference in the thighs and back.
I didn't make the 10lb/mo loss goal, but it's ok. 7.7lbs is still good. March, here I come!!!

ok, so that's annoying... I uploaded the same image and it posts correctly in the message section but not in the signature. Why???

Confession:

Since I'm dealing with stress with the project deadline approaching, I binged shopped the last couple of days. I just dropped $300 on beauty products and $250 on a new ssd. I have my eye on buying this other thing, which is another $300....

It's like instead of binge eating, I'm binge shopping...while the latter is definitely the healthier choice, it sure is making a dent in my wallet.

I better get some serious work done today since not much time is left!!!!!

Did you get the ticker working correctly ? I like it, but it's annoying that I have to completely redo my signature if I have a weight change.

IGDI, why do you think you are doing bad ? I think almost 8 pounds in a month is awesome ! You have to look at the big picture ! Good work, girl !

Ha! Finally fixed the darn sig.!!! Something was wrong with the particular picture that I chose. It's fine now with this daisy design it seems. Yay!

Ok, so yes. Have not been very diligent with journaling.. but I'm so busy that I can't seem to make time for it... Also, I haven't been feeling that well (a cold + pms) so that no particularly exciting news in the scale department. My body seems to be retaining a ton of water the past couple of days in prep for TOM. But my eating hasn't been too bad, although I was sooooooooooo tempted to binge on the wrong food. I was tempted every night especially, almost not able to go to sleep due to cravings....Boo... But I persevered! Barely.. So close to giving in it's scary!

The shopping splurges have continued unfortunately..hm... but hey, having some nice new beauty items is never that bad! I even splurged today! Got a new lipstick, eyeshadows, and....received my new foundation which is awesome btw! It's funny, I've never really been a heavy makeup girl, since I'm part hippy, lol, but with this new mindset, wanting to look attractive and regain confidence, and be happy with myself, is leading me to become really interested in make up and skin care products. Kind of feels strange because I've always been a tomboy, but why not enjoy and celebrate being born a woman!!!!

I shall! I will!!! Succeed in reaching my goal!!! And wear beautiful outfits and feel glorious! Confident, sexy, passionate so that I can be more loving, giving, and compassionate!!! I will!! I will!!!

Hi, there, IGDI ! I usually keep a running wishlist on ebay and amazon for when I have those "shopping" moods.

Yes, she. Shopping is so wonderful, isn't it? I heart it!!!

I've decided to not weigh myself for the time being. I don't want to feel discouraged. I just know that I'm retaining a ton of water because I woke up all puffy and stuffy from a cold today. Meh! I don't like being sick and I really can't afford to be sick right now. I have so much to do!!!

I just made a big pot of ginger tea. I really haven't been drinking enough fluids and I think that weakened my immune system. I'm not a huge fan of drinking water when the weather is cold. I really need a lifestyle where I migrate to tropical areas during winter months like monarch butterflies! Hehe.

I was planning on riding my bike to work and stuff today, but it's super windy outside...so not sure... I don't want to make myself sicker.

Well, lets try to have the best day possible! Because today will never come back. Every moment is a gift of life!

That is funny as I was only wondering the other day when I was reading on this board who it was that like Wayne Dwyer....lol...and tonight when I saw your post on my journal I remembered it was you, and thought oh there she is...lol.
Anyway reading over the last few pages since I last popped on you have done really really well, you must be so proud of yourself with everything else you have going on, your life sounds really busy and also fun....all those goodies you have been buying sounds amazing, there is nothing like treating yourself is there....anyway I will pop by again to see how you are doing....you will soon be in the 140's and I will do a happy dance for you......

Ekkk. I still feel crappy. Keep waking up in the morning with swollen puffy face, fever and the works! I'm really trying so hard not to get totally sick, but far from feeling well either. I'm staying very strong mentally telling myself that I simply will not get sick. Drinking lots of tea seems to be helping.
It is really hard to stay on top of things, but I don't have a choice. I will push through. This coming week will be especially hard with crazy schedules and TOM arriving soon + this dang cold. Things will be tough but it ain't gonna kill me. I'll just learn to manage my stress better. And in just 1 week, the project will be done and all will be golden. Whew, I can't wait!

I remember doing the same thing years ago when I was working...telling myself mentally that I wouldn't get sick, I actually found that it worked most of the time....have you ever done imagery, where you lie down and envision that all your white blood cells are an army, they all have big guns and they go blasting through your body killing all the nasty germs who are all dressed in black.....sounds mental I know, but I did it once when I was really ill with something nasty, I feel asleep doing it, and when I woke up there was no sign that I had been ill, no cough no cold no sore throat nothing...it was really odd....I have tried it off and on throughout the years, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't....I guess I sound a bit whacky now don't I lol.
Anyway really hope you manage to knock it on the head...stay warm and drink lots....

Feel better soon! I was sick in January and it really messed with my weight loss. Glad you have decided not to weigh until you're all better. No need for any added stressors.

Thank you so much, ladies! Your encouraging words are such great help and I really mean it.

Sandy- I totally don't find it wacko at all. I so believe in visualizations too and I might actually try that!!

i had a lunch meeting and had a few pieces of pizza. But while it could have led to a binge, I kept it to just that meal. I'm proud of myself for that!

Now the weather has warmed up, I'm drinking more water finally! It seems to be helping...it's clearing my skin too! Also, the weightloss is probably due to TOM finishing up... Hope it continues!
