LilySlim - Weight loss

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

I'm over half way there!

I am 22 days into my no alcohol for Lent stint. I'm not joking when I say it hasn't been that bad at all! I'm pretty impressed with myself. I am looking forward to enjoying a glass of wine at Easter, and I'm pretty sure that after this much time, it won't take much to make me feel it, lol!


I'm surprised I haven't really lost any weight. I think my pants fit better, I don't have a muffin top with my smallest jeans. My weight is so frustrating, it fluctuates daily, this morning it was 206. I just really want to get below 205. I haven't dipped below that in a year at least! Although I'm happy with my weightloss and the fact that I haven't gained any weight in a year, it's frustrating, because this is not the place I want to stop. I don't know what I want my goal weight to be, but I'm certain it starts with a 1 instead of a 2. How hard should it be to lose 7 pounds? Evidently, pretty darn hard for me. I've cut out alcohol and thought, hey, I'm gonna lose 10 pounds...not. I know I need to exercise, that part of this sucks. I do log my food, and most days, I'm between 12 and 1400 calories. I need all of you BOOBS to form a circle, hold hands and chant, or something. I really want to lose 7 pounds. That's all I can think of right now and that's my immediate goal. I want to lose 7 pounds. After that, then I'll re-assess things.


Okay, happy Wednesday, now start chanting!


Big Hugs!

You will lose them. Navigating this band is crazy sometime. It's always amazing how much people lose and don't lose or where they lose the weight.

It's going to happen.

That is frustrating...you give up alcohol and lose nothing? Hmmm...Keep playing around with it and you will find the right combo for you. :)

I can relate. I gave up sugar laden foods for lent and haven't lost a pound!

There's a lot to be said that you haven't gained weight in a year. Own that girlfriend!(well you did, lol)

I do understand where you are at. I feel the same way.

I shall chant - even in my sleep!

I wrote a post yesterday in a similar vein - the pounds just don;t want to come off anymore, but should I just be satisfied to be where I am? I could do with losing probably 10-14lbs; I need to exercise to get them off. Can someone chant for me to get off my butt?

I'm trying to lose seven pounds too!

I'm sending you good seven pound weight loss vibes!

Great job giving up the sauce.
