Fat No More!

As you can tell, the weekly updates I had planned didn’t happen. Please accept my apologies and this quick rundown of what’s been going on.

December 2010:
I began writing down each and every calorie on December 1st, as a result of not seeing weight loss results from the change in what I ate. I quickly discovered that while I was eating better, I was still eating too much. I dropped my calories down to 1200 – 1400 per day. As of December 1st, I clocked in at an embarassing 170 pounds. Gross.

Christmas in Ohio was nice; I fit into a pair of jeans that hadn’t fit since July, but there was still a ways to go.

Actual Christmas at my momma-in-law’s house was a challenge at first! She cooks for an army, but was nice enough to supply turkey bacon and egg substitute so the husband and I could keep our calorie counts down. I’m happy to say we made it through the day without succumbing to the tasty desserts!

January 2011: Happy New Year indeed! On January 12th, I weighed in at 151 pounds for a total of 19 pounds shaved off! We got gallons of alcohol for Christmas that is still mostly sitting in our kitchen; we’d rather not waste calories by getting drunk during the week. Keeping it raw didn’t work out for us, but we still kept it healthy. Lots of salads, veggies, hummus, whole wheat bread, and green tea!

February 2011: Weighed in at 144 pounds, total weight loss of 26 pounds! I’ve been getting some criticism at work (mainly from overweight people and from those who don’t have to work to keep weight off) because I don’t participate in pitch-ins or Chinese food orders. I try and just block them out.

Applebee’s has an amazing Weight Watchers menu, as well as an under 550 calorie menu, so we’ve been visiting quite a bit. Arby’s, Quiznos, Subway and Donatos also have great options. Diets don’t work for me, I have to be able to eat what I want!

March 2011: 
Weighed in at 139, total weight loss of 31 pounds and back into a size 5! My hubby and I have been spending the past 2 weeks getting rid of our fat clothes (Goodwill) and rebuilding our wardrobe. My hubby is down about 60 pounds, which is amazing. He looks great, sexier than ever 😉

I still have a little ways to go, but 31 pounds shed in about 3 months is fantastic. I’ve promised myself never to let myself get that unhealthy again. 170 pounds, are you kidding me??!?

My ultimate goal is to get to 130, but this is dependant on how I look as well. I’m not going to commit to a number if it’s going to result in me looking anorexic. We’ll just see how it goes….
