Time for an update

So, today was  measurement day. 

I only lost one inch in the last month, but my only complaint is that it didn't turn out to be the best time of month for me to do measurements; if you know what I mean. That now means I've lost a total of 64.5 inches since I started this whole thing. As far as weight, I've now officially lost 90 pounds. I'm happy with all of this. 

Janelle keeps reminding me that I won't keep losing weight as fast as I was when I started. Basically, the less weight you have to lose the longer it takes. Sometimes I have to remind myself of that when I step on the scale. 

Also, I've kinda mentioned this in the past, but I've been straying from the meal plan from time to time. I haven't for the past 2 weeks, and when I have it's not like I went on a bender and consumed like 20,000 calories. I've just been enjoying my summer and having a few extra beers on a few nights. I had an excellent time, I'm glad I did it because now it's out of my system, and now I can get back on track. Trust me, I had fun, but when I hopped on that scale and didn't see what I expected, I knew exactly why. 

I'm not making excuses for myself. I know why I wasn't losing for a few weeks (but I wasn't gaining). I'm still heading in the right direction. 


  1. Congrats on your loss! It's very tough to adjust to the new speed of weight loss - when I first started, I had a 4-6 pound loss every week! Now, I get 1-3 and sometimes it's stressful - I want to see the huge drops, but I know that my body is doing all it can and I don't want to hurt myself while trying to heal myself!

  2. Congrats! It's good that you are still able to maintain with all the "summer" foods and drinks. Summer is such a tough time when it comes to eating right, thank God it only last's 3 months lol

  3. Good job on your progress so far. I too am getting to the point where things are slowing down, it's frustrating but I have to remind myself of the same thing, I am closer and closer to goal and it's gonna get harder not easier! Good job on really maintaining though, I am so scared to stop tracking my intake everyday of fear of blowing up the scale again.

  4. Congrats!! A loss is a loss! I def think its hard to loose weight period, but especially in winter. Me and ice cream have a love hate kind of relationship lol. Your doing great though!!

  5. I am so amazed at your dedication and determination! Congrats on the 90-lbs mark and I'm looking forward to so many more (well.... you don't need to lose that many anymore do you!).
