Loving how I lost another 1.8lbs which brings me to a total of 6lbs lost in four days! My birthday is in 13 days and if I could keep up the pound a day average, I will be in the 140’s by then which would be amazing. I really need to start adding in exercise to boost my results. I used to attempt the ABC Diet as a calorie guideline but days are so unpredictable that it would never last long. This time I’m just doing my own thing, trying to get by with as little calories as I can without exceeding 800 a day. I find if you space your meals out, drink lots of water, choose the right foods to eat, and keep your goal in mind then somewhere in the 500 calorie range isn’t all that hard. Hoping to wake up tomorrow back in the 150’s.

I woke up today feeling motivated and ready to accomplish my goals. I think the hardest part will be getting back into working out, but I know I’ll get there because although losing weight is 80% diet, exercise can make a world of a difference! Unfortunately I’m working the late evening shift for the next couple of weeks, which sucks because I hardly ever get to see my boyfriend. However, this time it may be to my benefit because then I have all morning to exercise and I won’t be tempted to eat poorly at home. Evenings are definitely my weakness.
- 1 can tuna w/1tbsp miracle whip (150 cals)
- 2 cups tomato soup (200 cals)
- Spring vegetable soup (50 cals)
- Veggies w/ hummus (265 cals)
Total: 665 calories :)

How can I get over being an emotional eater? I’ve always been this way… I wake up one morning realizing how fat I’ve let myself become so I get all determined and motivated to make a change. I continue to do well for a couple of days (sometimes weeks but in this case two days) until something emotional hits me. Then I eat and feel just that much worse afterwards. Is it just me or does food that you eat during this moment not taste good at all? I used to purge after emotional eating but I’m trying really hard not to go back down that path again. I know working out has helped me with this problem in the past, but I can’t always fit in the time when the habit hits me. Any tips or advice from you guys would be greatly appreciated!
Anyway, I guess it’s probably pretty obvious now that I messed up my diet today. I may be feeling discouraged right now but I still have the will to lose weight in me and I WILL NOT give up! EVER!
I did SO well yesterday.. only 330 calories! And the best part is it was actually pretty easy. My boyfriend’s parents made us one of my favourite meals but I fought temptation and stuck to plain salad. Later in the evening my man got a craving for ice cream but I had some olives instead. Feeling pretty proud of myself, let’s hope this continues!
- Triple tall soy latte (120 cals)
- Fresh mixed fruit (80 cals)
- 1pkg of lipton chicken noodle soup (180 cals)
- Salmon fillet (130 cals)
- Salad w/4tbsp italian dressing (40 cals)
- 2 Baby dill pickles (6 cals)
Total: 556 calories :)

Daydreaming of the day where I can say I’ve lost a total of 80 pounds. Today = 31 down and 49 to go! Sounds daunting but I just have to take it one day at a time and I know I’ll get there.
Wow it’s hard to believe that it’s already May, and sadly I have accomplished nothing with regards to my weight-loss goals. Time seems to fly by so quickly and yet here I am still overweight and unhappy with myself. I’m ashamed how bad I’ve let myself go but there’s no sense in dwelling over it or feeling sorry for myself. Instead I need to get off my lazy ass and do something to change that! I need to be counting calories and make exercise a daily priority again. My birthday is in two and a half weeks and I would love to lose a noticeable amount of weight by then (maybe 15lbs?).
I have so many amazing things to look forward to this year and I want to be able to enjoy every bit of everyone of them. My boyfriend and I are moving to a new city together this summer and my goal is to be in the 120-130s range by then so I can totally reinvent myself! My man is also hinting about proposing to me and while he won’t hint on exactly when… he has hinted it will happen sometime this year!!! That alone is an incredible motivation for me to lose weight. I want to be able to show off our happiness to the world without holding back because of my body issues. I’m feeling really good about this, I’m really going to get it done this time! This is the year I will achieve my ideal body! I will be posting updates daily for those who are interested in following me :)
