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 last 15 lbs for my goal weigh to 120!
I’ve quit smoking, and ate properly today. I had an hour and a half’s worth of leisure biking with my childhood best friend, and it was refreshing. also so happy to know that it was an unconscious effort to burn 250 cals! Not bad, considering that it’s rather fun.
I want to go back to my old routine of going to the gym. That one I can handle, but I need help with hunger pangs. I get cravings so easily now, more than I ever used to. Tips please?
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.

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 to answer more!
I got new boxing shoes for the occasion lol ~
But I havent purchased gloves yet because I haven’t found one that fits my taste!
i realized tonight that i'm lucky. i have extra weight and 25 lbs to lose, but i don't hate my body. it doesn't torture me or haunt me every day. i LOVE myself, skinny or fat. i wish i could help others feel that way about themselves too ): you're all so beautiful--most of you are way prettier than i am! please love yourselves!!
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
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 instead. Or skipped the gym for a week. :P
It’s my birthday in 4 weeks. I hope to have lost around 4-6 lbs within that time so in my birthday I’d be 135 :)
Day Ten: What was the hardest thing you gave up during this weight loss?
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 weight in a negative way?
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 think 115 won’t be skinny enough, I’d feel healthy with that! Negative comments are just gonna buff me up!
Day Seven: Do your parents know you’re trying to lose weight? Do they care?
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 think you do.
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 weight? Are you doing it for you?
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 the plumpest :(
It’s only been a week, and I lost the first four pounds so I’m proud of that! I read somewhere that it takes the first ten pounds for it to be actually noticeable, but for some reason I’ve gotten immediate compliments.
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.
