losing weight

45 days: day(s) 23 & 24

I did not blog yesterday. I fell off the wagon. I weighed myself last night and was back up to 179.6lbs. it made me so upset that I skipped the gym, had dinner, took a sleeping pill and called it a day. I just didn’t want to think about it. Counting calories is driving me insane. I’m stopping for now until I can do it without obsessing over it.

Tonight I went back to the gym, but I’m not going to weigh myself. I don’t want to have another break.

45 days: day 22

Ugh. Not good. Not good. I lost it last night and ate a lot of stuff I should not have eaten. Cookies. Crunch Berries cereal. I am not happy with myself. Dammit! Couldn’t make it a week. I have to find a way to get through the nights off from work. They mess me up.

My weight is 179.6. I gained 1.2lbs since the last weigh in. Overall for my calorie counting week I lost a total of 2.8lbs. That’s not bad, but it could have been better.

45 days: day 21

3 weeks I have been taking the GNC Women’s Ultra Mega Energy & Metabolism supplements. It has helped curb my appetite a bit and that is enough for me. Especially at work. I am on day 6, I think, of counting calories and that has been going well. It would go a lot better if I didn’t obsess about it. It’s making me miserable. I can have a cookie, chips, a sandwich or ice cream if I want, as long as I stay within my set calorie limit, but I keep denying myself those things because I feel like it is cheating.  Sigh.

I went to the gym tonight and did 45 minutes on the treadmill, burning 314 calories. I weighed myself and am at 178.8. Who would have thunk it? Not overeating, counting calories and going to the gym is helping me lose wight. It’s a miracle!

I still want cookies.

45 days: day 19

I WANT SOME COOKIES!

This sucks. I hate it. But it has to be done or I am going to be overweight forever. Anyway, day 5 of counting calories. It isn’t horrible, but it is annoying. I ended up slightly losing my mind last night and chewed an insane amount of gum to keep from gorging on cookies. I did eat a serving of Tostito round tortilla chips. I was within my 1,200 calorie limit, but it still felt like cheating.

Since it’s my night off from work I went to the gym earlier than usual and burned 254 cals. I weighed myself and am at 179.8lbs. Yay! 170’s.

 

45 days: day 18

Feels like I was just submitting an entry. Time goes by so fast. Day 18 of the supplements and day 4 of counting calories. Still doing it. My calorie intake is going to be the same as yesterday because I’m eating the same thing I ate yesterday.  No harm in that.

I hit the gym to do 30 minutes on the treadmill and I burned 245 cals. I keep upping the speed and incline. But only if I feel like I can take it. If I start getting too exhausted I will take it down a notch. I don’t want to be miserable.

Weight-wise I am currently at 180.6lbs. Chipping away at it.

I am still worried about tonight because it is my night off. I will be craving cookies like a mad woman. And having cookies would not be so bad if I could eat just one or two. Not twelve.

45 days: day 16

16th day of taking the supplements and the 2nd day of counting calories. Today my caloric intake was 1,135 and I burned 219 cals at the gym. I weighed myself and am at 182.0lbs.

I am doing ok fighting off the urge to eat when I’m not really hungry. I hope I can keep this up for the rest of the week. As long as there are no interruptions I will be fine. I just have to stay focused and on schedule.

45 days: day 15

I’m going to write this before I start playing video games because I will forget. Today I started counting calories. My goal is stay 1,200 cals or lower. According to My Fitness Pal my calorie intake for today was 1,313 calories. Dammit! Eh, It’s fine. I’m not going to feel discouraged because of it. I hit the gym and burned 215 cals. I weighed myself and came in at 182.4lbs.
