December shouldn't be too bad

So, the final weigh-in for November was 134.5, which I'm going to round up to 135 (make myself work that much harder). While I didn't lose anywhere near what I was really hoping to, I still managed to get 3-4 pounds off from when I started this blog. Not too bad. Six pounds, if we count the 2 before I began posting. So, I'm happy.

I want to lose 10 pounds this December. I know it's a way to go, but if I can do it. I'll be so ecstatic, and back to where I was before I let myself balloon uncontrollably to 140. GROSS. I need to really have a handle on my intake so that I don't start purging and feeling so bad about it. It's a new month and I'm up for the challenge. Even if I ultimately only lose another 5 pounds, I'll be fine with that.

Yesterday, I refrained from eating the salad and instead treated myself to a little under two cups of fresh pineapple. I nibbled on a pringle and a cashew, but that was for show mostly. I had a couple guy friends pop by to say hello and I served them some vodka. I'm so glad I still had half a bottle of cream soda (diet) and poured it in my glass. I really didn't want to mess up my count for the day. I owed it to myself. Today, so far I've had some gummy vitamins (imported) and a cup of tea. I'll have the salad after I get passionate with my jump rope. Haha.


  1. I'm depressingly tired.
    I read the "passionate with my jump rope" and instead of a lol or anything else, I thought "...bowchika wow-wow."

    Oi, thanks. I'm gonna go home after shopping today, see the jump rope, and erupt in giggles. AWESOME.

    And holy SHIT, dude. You started this on the 17th, right? So you lost, what? About 4 pounds since then? So that would mean if you kept up that pace you could lose like, 9.5 lb's next month. Now I'm all excited for you!
    And you're right. Even if it is only another couple pounds, it's still pounds that you're LOSING, not GAINING. You're making progress.
    That's how I have to look at it. When I started I was all gungho, losing like...I think once I lost 14 lb's in one month? But I was MASSIVE, so...when it slowed down, I got really down about it.
    Now I'm just happy to be lower at the end of the month than when I began. It actually...really helps to think like that, maybe?
    I don't know.

    I totally just babbled in your blog.
    And sorry it took so long to comment back to you! I'm nearing exams, so I get super busy and don't read for a bit ):

    Stay strong, lovey!
    I can't wait to read more!
