Weigh in

I'm working a semi - low carb plan - staying under 100 carbs a day and trying to get all my steps in and as of this morning I was at 190 even. Thats with TOM looming so I'll take it. I also joined a dietbet that started yesterday and runs until May 18. I have to hit under 185.3 to win. I hate to lose/waste money so its a pretty good investment in me :)


Keeping it up

Still doing good on the walking and eating well side of things. I had a tooth pulled yesterday so I was lazy and didn't get all my steps in but still hit just under 10k which considering I lounged on the couch and babied myself was a win for me. It's going to be a cold weekend here - hopefully our last one before spring arrives - so I'll be doing laps inside my kitchen to try to hit 20k steps Saturday and Sunday. I've been having some pain and swelling in the top of my foot - in the area of the tendon that runs up from the big toe so I used yesterday as a rest day to try and calm the irritation down a bit.
Hope everyone has a great weekend. I'll be checking in Monday with a weigh in.

The "Oh crap I'm going to be a bridesmaid in 4 months" weight loss journey

So here we go again same old story - I'm fat and trying to lose weight. Seems like some things never change. My best friend asked me to be a bridesmaid in her wedding before Christmas and like an ass I waited and waited to work on losing weight so here we are 129 days until the wedding and I'm just as fat as when she asked me. I am seriously trying to work on it though. Saturday I strapped the fitbit back on and started walking. I've got my goal set at 12,000 steps a day minimum but I've been doing over 16,000 with a high of 20,229 on Sunday. I've been doing lots of laps around the kitchen. I'm planning on eating my last mini bag of cadbury eggs tonight and then I'm done with the candy. I already did away with the stash at my work that I'd been hitting on the regular. My bridesmaid dress should be arriving soon and I'm not looking forward to trying it on :(

Anyway so my weight as of Sunday was 193.5 - hoping that by next Sunday I see a drop of at least a couple lbs. It would certainly help my motivation.
