Early Weight Loss Entry

So I know I said I would write every 20th & 5th, but I just joined DietBet so I’m writing about that.

I just weighed myself this morning.. 203.5… … … Ouch I remember when 140 was a tragedy…

dreamy smile
Ahh… memories

So I figure.. after tearing apart the work place that I might as well take my measurements again since I’m doing the whole weight loss thing and the inches are more important to me personally anyway…

In 10 days I doubt I’ve made any difference.. but let’s see…

August 20th measurements:
Bust: 44″
Waist: 37″
Hips: 48″
Arms: 13.5″
Thighs: 30″
Weight: 200+lbs

August 30th measurements:
Bust: 44″
Waist: 37″
Hips: 47″
Arms: 13″
Thighs: 29.5″
Weight: 203.5lbs

Apparently 10 days did something.. that’s kinda awesome.. I can honestly say I’m happy now! Woo hoo!

I don’t think I’ve changed my eating habits much, but I have meal planned.. skipped the carbs when the rest is filling.. and am making an effort to cut back the amount of white sugar in my diet.. which is saying a lot since I used to put 2 tsps per cup.. I’m down to 1.5tsps now.. 

That may not seem like much but factor in the fact that I drink 10 cups a day.. I’ve gone from 6 2/3 tbsp of sugar down to 5tbsp I’ve cut out 1 2/3 tbsp of sugar a day.. That is 36.5 less cups a year that I will no longer be consuming. 28,214 less calories a year..

Wholly sheets!

Can you tell I’m bored? Haha.. I’m doing math.. in a blog.. that no one reads..

Anyways.. to sum things up

– I’ve lost 2 collective inches
– I don’t know how much weight I’ve lost
– I’ve joined Dietbet
– I’m bored

Question of the day:
Are you currently doing a weight loss thing? What is yours Paleo? Atkins? Noom? Tell me about it

Between 3 jobs..

I just got off work from my day shift job.. I have an hour at home before my evening shift job.. I tell you I can’t wait for my two weeks to be up already..

I only slept for 4 hours last night I think.. The baby didn’t want to sleep.. She hasn’t slept much today either.. She had a half an hour nap for grama today.. I hope she nap for her evening sitter.. Even if it means another long night for me.. She is cranky when she is sleep deprived..

Then again.. So am I.. Haha
Between my two jobs out in the big wide world & my full time job of mom-o-two at home.. I need a vacation..

I am somewhat relieved that I am taking some pressure off of my boyfriend though..

He may not show it.. But he has been under a lot of stress with me being home so long.

I really do have the best boyfriend ever..

Although not the most glamorous.. I am happy with the New job.. It is Monday to Friday so I will get the weekends to myself.. (pronounced: for the children)

Someday I will get a day off.. Just me.. And some friends.. And no kids.. To just be me.. But for now.. I will gladly take an hour long snuggle with the baby between shifts and a warm hug from the sweetest big sister I ever could have hoped for her..

Stay tuned for the next blog.. I have a question I could use advice on..

For now I wanna know what you are doing for thanksgiving weekend 🙂

Family? Friends? Quiet? Big? Not celebrating it? Celebrating next month?
