How Low Can You Go

I Can Now Go Back To My Normal Life...I Think

>> Saturday, May 1, 2010

I saw a parent of a student that I used to teach.  She has not seen me in a few years.  She commented on how much weight I had lost and asked if I was planning on running a marathon.   Never thought about it, maybe one day....  Anyone that knows me, knows that I don't mind attention,  I am outgoing and shy is not a word that would be used to describe me.  But, when it comes to weight loss, I am very humble and sheepish about what I have accomplished, hence why I haven't told any of my friends about this blog.  It happens that one of them found it, I was a bit surprised, but then again, this IS the Internet. I felt bad because I really felt as if I was hiding something from them, but I wasn't.  How do you email your friends and say, " Hey, read this blog about me."  That is not my style and I apologize for "living a secret blog life". Now you know and are here to join me, welcome! Don't get me wrong, if anyone asks me about what I have done, I am more than happy to share any info with them, it's just that I like to keep that aspect of my life to myself.

      A few people at work could not stop talking about how much weight I had lost (maybe it was because I was wearing all black today). It really made me feel uncomfortable, what do you say to that?  It is not that I am ashamed or anything, it is just that still have a long way to go...I know that it is all about the journey, but I cannot wait to get there, I was thinking today that I have never really been any size smaller than a 14. Just thinking about it makes me excited.  I am going to be broke from all the clothes that I am going to buy. Oh well!  I really feel like I can do it.  This summer I am goin to work my ass off, so that when I go back to school in September, I will be the hottest MissHaneefa ever! 

     These last few days have been busy and I have not been eating well, skipping meals, eating alot of carbs (damn you yummy bagels *shaking fist to the sky*).  Friday, I had a fantastic weigh in for the Beach Challenge and it set a new low of 216.4!  But, because I have been so busy with work and tonight was the production that I have been working on, I ate ALOT of crap, a Snicker's bar was my dinner.  I have a feeling that I am going to pay for it in the morning.  The only good thing is I was I drank about 6 bottles of water today.  There is no use crying over spilt milk.  Tomorrow is another day and all I can do is try my best this week.  There are no real challenges that I can forsee until Mother`s day weekend.  I am going to hit gym really hard and maybe even do two workouts this weekend.   My prediction for tomorrow's weight in is 218, 217 would be really nice and would give a 2 pound loss, but I will take what I can get.

I cannot believe that it is ready May, Monday is the monthly weigh in and I am down since last month and that is a fantastic thing.

Talk to you in a few hours!

Thank you readers for being there for me and for reading, I know not everyone who reads writes a comment, so iIjust want to say I really appreciate you coming by and taking the time to read my ramblings.

Congrats on losing 10 lbs in April! That is so amazing. I really would like to lose 6 lbs in May. I don't know if I can do it. One thing - I have to give up my one cheat meal per week. I mean, I can have desert on my diet...so I think I need to just stick stick stick to it. I know what you mean - I don't even show my face on my blog, I don't mind letting people know I am trying to lose weight, but the deep inner feelings I have about the process???? I'm not sure that I'd like to share that with my real life friends. Wonder why that is.

I can't wait for you to get your new wardrobe this fall!
