It's been a month :)

I'm down 11.6 lbs and my new measurements are...

chest: 35.5 inches (still a D, sweet)
stomach: 35 inches
hips: 29 inches
thighs: 21 inches
biceps: 12 inches

I am very proud of myself and I'm going to keep going. I'm completely OP today even with eating my real cheeseburger (well lean ground beef, fat free cheese, lettuce and tomato on an arnold sandwich thin so not a real restaurant cheeseburger but it was FANTASTIC). I didn't go to the gym today but that was a decision that I made because I only have so much time in a day (and besides working) I had so much laundry and cleaning around the house to do so I'm good with it, I'll be back at Planet Fitness tomorrow.

Everyday I'm realizing how much happier I've been lately. I think this move to really buckle down and lose this weight, go to the gym and make healthier choices is the best decision that I've made in a long time. Everyday I find it easier to make good decisions and I'm really enjoying the results of them. I am getting a little bit of flack and being made fun of by some so called "friends" but you know what? There is NOTHING wrong with not partying every night of the week, holding yourself accountable and feeling great about yourself. I'm not going to apologize for it; if they don't like the new me then that's their problem not mine! LOL

  1. And you should enjoy every minute of it! They don't know the uphill struggle it has been, and will continue to be. They don't know what it's been like, unless they've been there themselves. They should be happy for you because you are succeeding, and not taking it personally when you don't sabotage yourself as you did before. Still, maybe it's just people's way to want to socialise. Although I don't see why there can't be a healthier alternative that won't have you racked with guilt afterwards, and your diet put in jeopardy. If they care about you, they'll be willing to compromise. Don't let them piss on your bonfire! (So to speak...)

    Wishing you the very best in your mission :)
