i took diet pills for the first time today. oh my god i feel full and when i eat i’m nauseous. let’s see!
For every like, I will do 10 crunches! Make me...
sweat-and-tears: Also if you’d like, (nudge nudge), throw anything else you want at me :D you go girl! i challenge you this. i’m bound to do this in a bit after 60 mins of elliptical
Help! I want to get back on track?
I started out with 150 lbs last Agust, and got to 132 since october started, however, we had a family crisis and I had to take care of so many things that I didn’t get to watch my diet or hit the gym. Now i am back up to 135. I know that 3 lbs gain in 7 weeks shouldn’t get to me, but I’m afraid of slipping back into my old habits, such as bingeing and smoking. I want to lose the...
20 lbs more to go <3
The mirror doesn't lie, its written on your...
I’m now 138. The thing is, I’m on my period and I have the flu. My entire body hurts and fever is crazy high. I also can’t work up an appetite even when my tummy is grumbling :( So obviously i’ll be dropping more lbs, but not in the way I want to. Sigh!
I used to complain about running.
But since my new comfortable running shoes and quitting smoking, I find myself saying “One more kilometer!” I know 20 min/mile is like, a laughable rate for runners, but I am NOT a runner haha! My dream is to reach 8-10 min/mile. [ done twice a day ] I also want to try boxing, to develop some strength. I also basically have no sport :P so now when I get asked about hobbies, I get...
i realized tonight that i'm lucky. i have extra...
I feel the same way! I have 30 lbs to go (actually just 20, but yeah maybe I really want to push for 110) but its not like I’m close to starving myself to get there. As they say, in losing weight you’ve got to look at how far you’ve come rather than how far you still have to go. Have you seen 10 lbs of pure fat? Not a pretty sight. Pushing for 120 by the end of this year :D Slow...
My exercise routine
2.5 km run 5 minute rest 15 minutes to perform: weight training 2 sets for 15 reps (upper body mostly arms) 2.5km run 5 minute rest more weight training: weight training (lower body mostly glutes) 5 minute figure twister traditional crunch, flat bench leg raise, abdominal reverse curl 4 sets for 25 reps (I used to do dumbbell exercises, but I started doing other exercises with the...
I can’t afford Zumba classes but I do have a PS3 and a DVD player. Are there available cd’s for those?
First 10 lbs goodbye check-in
So there you have it! I am now 140 lbs. I have reached 140 a long tim ago, but I got my period and I ballooned to 146. I’ve actually been hitting 138, but I’m considering my stable actual weight to be 140 for now. It’s been 6 weeks since I started this, so I’m happy. Granted, I know I could have done better if I didn’t just have one more of that snack and had a fruit...
Is 4.5/kph for 1.5hrs enough?
I’m hoping to lose 10 lbs by October., so 2 lbs/week. I don’t know what happened but I seem to have stopped losing weight and i don’t know why!
The person who made this deserves an award...
Bring it: The truth about weight loss →
10weekstoskinny: It’s hard. Forget those fake posts about people saying “I’d take Vegetables over chocolate any day!” Truth is, They’d take Vegetables because they’re healthier, not because they don’t want the chocolate. It doesn’t get easier, no matter what everybody says. There are temptations there every day,…
How horrible did I feel when i weighed myself and thought I was back to 146?! Apparently that was all water weight. Eugh. Anyway! Had a good day at the gym. 1 hr cardio ,1 hr strength. I meant to do 2 hrs on cardio but I had to get home early. I will tomorrow!
gained back all the weight i've lost.
so disappointed in myself. 2 weeks for nothing… i have to do this!
Chocolate Banana Popsicles
I combined a banana, plain greek yogurt, and just a little chocolate pudding powder in the blender. Then frozen in my popsicle maker. Each popsicle is 80 calories and satisfies my dessert cravings. Inspired by yogurt and jello creations from http://undressedskeleton.tumblr.com/
Day Ten: What was the hardest thing you gave up...
It actually hurts trying to move at all. Laughing and coughing is a bitch. My muscles are so sore because of exercise. I almost want to beg off to skip the ab exercises but I suck it up and keep going.
Day Nine: Did people ever make comments about your...
Life, pretty much. The recent one was when my aunt told me that I should definitely be trying to lose weight because I’m “so huge”. Like, When I was 125 lbs in high school I was still ~huge to people because of my wide hips and big boobs. *shrugs* I don’t want to look like a stick, though. So yeah as long as I’m happy I’ll keep going. Even if other people...
Day Eight: Your work-out routine.
Every morning I stationary bike 12-14 mph for 30 minutes, do various strength and ab exercises for an hour and a half with 2-3 reps in 12 counts. Then, another hour of biking.
Day Seven: Do your parents know you’re trying to...
Yes, they do. My mother has been especially supportive. Although sometimes we fight when I resist her suggestions to eat something that’s not part of my food plan, or skip a day of gym (that one I really disagree with the most!) she’s really been there for me every step of the way.
Day Six - Do you binge? If so, explain why you...
Hm, maybe I’ve started this already with a very committed body and brain, so I find avoiding that easy. I also broke the bingeing and snacking habit by eating jello! Apparently, it’s addicting. Or maybe it isn’t. It’s just really fun to eat! =P I can eat 2 cups in 1 sitting.. 20 calories versus a bag of chips I used to have! :)
Day Five - Why do you really want to lose this...
I really, really do. I always had some senseless reason before, that’s why I yoyo, but now I am VERY sure on this. 100%! I want to be healthy and fit, stop eating all that junk. I noticed that I exhibited polyphagia, polydipsia and polyuria. Since diabetes runs in my family, I knew I had to start eating healthy. I also went to Boracay last April. It was depressing to realize that I was...
Do strength exercises help burn calories?
Cardio at home just wasn’t working for me, so i went to the gym to try for a day’s session. The trainer taught me two hours’ worth of cardio and strength exercises! I’m coming back there everyday. My only worry is that I only get 20 minutes of cardio, and the rest of it are strength exercises! Is it going to help me lose weight? I’m not sure if strength exercises...

Day Four: Your greatest fears about weight loss.
That I’ll hit a plateau at 125, because when i was in highschool it was my usual weight. I got into uni and gained 20 lbs over the course of years. My biggest jump was 115 to 125, right when I hit my teen years. I fear a plateau because my goal is 10 lbs below that, and I’m afraid I might not break it.
Day Three: A picture of your thinspiration. What...
undressedskeleton! I picked her because her story is real. It’s not some celebrity who has gym trainers or nutritionists and chefs to help them. She did it all on her own, and along the way inspired so many. It also helps that her calorie controlled recipes look yummy!
Day Two: How tall are you? Do you like your...
5’3 sounds short but it’s actually average from where I am! I am okay with it. I could use three more inches but it’s nothing that heels can’t fix! ;)
