School is really stressing me out. I’m coming up to finals week very soon. Having my last end-of-midterm tests? Weird I know. Finals are going on around June 5th or so.. Scary stuff right there. I didn’t get to workout today which probably is the reason why I feel a tad more stressed than normal. :( Just goes to show how exercise is sooo important.
I knew I had a long day so I just decided to have something different other than waffles or cereal. From what I could tell it kept me pretty energized until roughly 3. Maybe I’ll do that on days I know I cant have lunch till roughly 3:30-4.
Lunch: Chicken & Salad
I actually brought this to school thinking I would eat it but I didn’t want to eat it during class cause people would give me weird looks i’m sure. Anyway, I didn’t end up... (view more)

Ht. 5'6", Start: 200 lb, Today: 192 lb (BMI %tile: 96), Goal: 150 lb - Whoops! I double posted a blog post. My bad.
Thinking back on the days. I HATE weighing out foods oh my gosh, it is so annoying. But I realize if I don’t I wont eat the right amount of food. I’m training myself.
Nothing too much. Just enough to get me through the day.
I made a bunch of chicken so you’ll probably be seeing more chicken during my lunches. haha.
To be honest I don’t quite remember what I ate. I write some of these the day after so I totally forget. Must not have been eventful otherwise I’d probably remember. Either way I’ve been eating less of foods just because I don’t do sauce them up at all which allows me eat less and less.

Ht. 5'6", Start: 200 lb, Today: 192 lb (BMI %tile: 96), Goal: 150 lb - Day 18-
little note: I don’t blog on weekends. Just don’t have the time.
I looked at my weight this morning and i’m 192.00- Pretty happy about seeing my weight go down even though sometimes i do tricky stuff. I think when I do those tricky things I feel guilty and end up not doing it all too much. A habit I have to break very soon.
Really got tired of the waffles lol. I went to math class and the gym. I’m going to start a workout routine. I’m curious if my weight is going to go up when I work out? I guess we’ll find out. My goal is to go to the gym everyday I go to school (Which is everyday!) I hope I have the mind power to be able to do it.
I had a really bad stomachache I couldn’t really eat. I drank a ton of water. I’m sure I’ll have something good for dinner. I always wonder... (view more)

I got sick of cereal and I’m almost about to get sick of waffles. It seems to boost my energy in the morning and I can barely think of a time that is really needed to skip breakfast! It’s the most important meal of the day.
Lunch: gourmet sandwich
I had a meeting with my old Young Life leader and he bought me a sandwich it was really kind of him. I didn’t ask him to buy it but I also told him about the diet I’m doing but it was a special occasion. I ate half the sandwich and let him keep the other half and put it in the fridge.
I made some rice and I was like eh it’s boring so I weighed the cheese slice, and took out the weight from the rice. I’m not sure if that’s alright but it was kind of just a fun thing to try out.
Overall today was an alright day. It was sunny and happy day. I feel like when it’s sunny I just dont feel the need to eat. I make sure to drink a ton of water during those days though.

Today I feel somewhat energized, I woke up way too early so that I could do some work at the library at my university. I cant seem to work at home for the life of me.
I packed some lunch with me because I wont be able to go home until 3. These days are usually the most stressful because I have two, two hour classes right next to each other.
It was good I wasn’t all too hungry so I just ate a little bit of rice and went off to bed. I just felt way too busy that day and had no time to really think about food!

I’m Back! A little recap. Midterms were insane. I was very close to eating the whole fridge at times but I didn’t! I was extremely stressed out but I locked myself in my room so I wouldn't go on a junk escapade. I think I’ll be just fine. I don’t think I’ve gained any weight currently. I’m going to the gym to do weighted squats which is really nice because I miss doing things at the gym. I’m drinking coconut water for muscle movement. I want to be pretty flexible and be able to run with ease.
Uhm. It was yummy. Felt guilty for eating pizza for breakfast though lol. I had to quickly get out of the house to go for my midterm at 8:30 am. After the study I need to figure out a daily breakfast item that is healthy. Like toast, almond butter and banna slices. That sounds really good!
Lunch: I dont think I had lunch? Or maybe I just quite don’t remember.
Pretty sure I just wasn’t all too hungry that day. Thats good-ish.
On to the next day.

Ht. 5'6", Start: 200 lb, Today: 196 lb (BMI %tile: 97), Goal: 150 lb - Day ???(i'll figure it out next post)
Alright so I’m writing this Wednesday after my midterm. Midterms was insane. At this point I had to stop thinking about food all together to be able to stop from snacking. Recently I went on the scale and I’m at 193 or 2? I forget which but it was one of those. I’m happy to say I’m almost 10 pounds closer to my goal that I was from day 1! This has been an extreme struggle for me but I’m going to keep going at it until I reach 150 pounds or even less. So today I'm going to start blogging again after I figure out what day I'm on.

Ht. 5'5", Start: 300 lb, Today: 170 lb (BMI %tile: 92), Goal: 130 lb - I'M A MOM POSTING THIS FOR YOU KIDS TO SEE.I just wanted to give y'all a happy update. In 2014 I wrote on here about my obese daughter becoming pregnant. At the time she was around 300 pounds and by the time the baby was born (overdue at 41 weeks) my daughter had lost 20 pounds by making a lifestyle change for the sake of her daughter. Obviously, it is hard to be pregnant at any age, but being obese, and 16 at the time…it wasn't easy. She started eating healthy foods and cut out the junk, and she started going on walks early in the pregnancy. She said she wanted to loose weight to be able to take maternity pictures and see the bump because she carried a lot of fat in the belly area. Even though she only lost around 20 pounds, it made a difference and you could see her bump and she got to take the pictures she wanted. They are very beautiful and she looks clearly pregnant...

I’m going to keep this day short because not too much happened.. Day of my mid-term for microeconomics. Very stressful day.
I don’t have very many breakfast items so i’m kind of limited to what I can take in. I think I didn’t have that much to eat but I think it was because I was really stressed about the test so I couldn’t really think about food.
Class went until 3:00 but at least the midterm is over.
not very hungry, can wait till dinner.
Nothing really out of the norm. Was very yummy. Spent the rest of the day studying for math and playing some video games. Tried to chill out after the midterm.
Emotionally I feel alright, I still feel like I’m focusing a lot more on food and I am also missing it MORE because I have to think about when I can eat and how much I can eat.
The thing I’m most worried about is rebounding out of this behavior i’m trying to put myself into which is cutting back on eating.

Monday, May 2nd!
So it said I lost 3 lbs or something this week but it still lowered my food intake.. weird? Anyway. I don’t have my car today so I have to take my moms car to school and then to Physical therapy.
Breakfast: Cereal & Banana
I think what I’m going to do is plan when I cannot eat lunch and just have a pre-weighed item for lunch such as a banana or some chicken. Something easy that will get me burning calories through the day. Right now I feel like I have a bit of energy but I don’t feel completely energized. It might be because I’m just still a little bit tired.
Off to math class!
Lunch: Sesame Chicken
This was really good. The weighed amount was way too much for me it felt like. Maybe my stomach is shrinking! I’ve been studying all day long, and will keep studying till thursday! uh oh.

Today is also going to be another one of those stressful and full days where I probably wont be able to eat lunch because I wont be at home to make foods on my list. Maybe if I buy something, I can just eat half of it so I make sure that I’m at least following the “Eating out” procedures. I have work until 7:30 so I wont be able to get home until around 8. :(
So far so good, that’s given me enough energy to make it through math class. I unfortunately have to meet with my teacher to go over my test scores (Its okay! I didn’t fail the test.) As I’m writing this section I’m starting to lose energy, which is not a good sign, maybe I need to eat some lunch..(1:05pm)
Emotionally I don’t feel all too great. I weighed myself today and compared it to yesterday and it looked like I some how lost half a pound in a day? maybe an inaccuracy or some fluids... (view more)

Today was quite a crazy day. I work a job rarely when I have the free time to do some work and earn some money. Today was that day, but it made my day very hectic. This causes quite a bit of issue in terms of me being able to eat the correct meals.
I have to make fast items when I wake up because I always wake up late and have roughly 5 minutes to eat food before I have to race out of the house and get to school.
Lunch: None ;(
This was the point when I was too busy to go home and get some of the food I’ve prepared on my list. This is one of the biggest issues I’m currently having with the study is that I’m normally not home when I need to eat lunch. Maybe I’ll start packing some non-perishable lunch with me to take to school.
Dinner: Chicken & Rice
Dang, that was really enjoyable to eat... (view more)

Ht. 5'7", Start: 350 lb, Today: 275 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 160 lb - Hi guys, I havent been on here in a few years. I used to use this all the time as a support group when i was really struggling. I come back now after 2 years and 75lbs down. I come here today because I just received my surgery date. I will be having bariatric gastric sleeve May 31st. It was a long journey to deciding to have this surgery. after seeing both parents go threw it and having a life change i wanted to jump on that bandwagon. have done well thus far but i felt i needed a boost and the surgery is going to help. I have been in a rollercoaster pattern for the last 5 years and right now is the first time i have been able to keep this weight off and its a struggle. i only come here for help so please dont bash me for deciding to take the route of surgery.

Ht. 5'4", Start: 232 lb, Today: 211 lb (BMI: 36), Goal: 140 lb - Not that happy I gained a couple pounds ugh! Always tomorrow to start over I guess. I am nervous because my crush and I are going out with a group in a couple weeks and I get embarrassed really easily and I'm uptight mainly because of my weight and I think people are looking/judging me when I know they aren't it's just a really hard thing for me.In school I was bullied and I felt like you had to be skinny to be pretty and no one would ever like me because of my weight and now I see it's not like that but I can't help having those thoughts.
