Day 40

I can't believe it is day 40 already!!!! I just got a knot in my stomach thinking about it! These past 40 days flew by! I only have 60 more!!!! So, the first thought that ran in my head this morning was: "I know I gained weight. I really don't want to weight in for another two days." If this ever runs through your brain, snap yourself out of it. If I hadn't weighed-in, I would've kept on gaining. I was 139.1. Ugh. I KNOW that by next Sunday I will be 137.0. My new mini goal is to be 135 by Feb 10th, the day my dress is supposed to come in.

BF: Zone bar (190), Lunch: 1/2 homemade wrap (145), lemonade (5), Snack: other 1/2 of wrap (145), Snack 2: Fiber One bar (140), 1/2 c. milk (45), Snack: few yogurt covered raisins and 2 pretzels (150), Dinner: 2 slices of wheat bread with Boca chicken patty (250), whole grapefruit (110), Snack: 1 slice of wheat bread (50), small amount of Smart Balance spread (50), jelly (60) for the day: 1340.

Tomorrow and Tuesday are getting slam packed with workouts. I might do a cycling class at 6am on Wednesday. I'm pretty excited. I got a new spurt of motivation talking on the phone with my mom tonight about my shower and bachelorette party. I wanna be able to wear a cute short dress or dressy shorts with heels.

A girl can dream, right?


  1. Hey.. At least you weren't 140! Look on the bright side! :)

  2. don't stress yourself out! You are doing a great job. One question many calories do you allow yourself every day? And how did you come about that number? I was shocked to find out how many I need to consume just to LOSE weight. I originally said I will eat 1200 calories a day but that was sooo wrong. Just make sure you are eating enough!!

  3. When I am on track, I aim to eat between 1200 and 1600 calories, depending on exercise. The more I workout, the more I eat. The past 5 days or so I haven't been that great at counting all of my calories and that's why I gained. I completely agree that you loss weight at a much slower rate if you don't eat enough. Your body need fuel to burn fat. Plus you don't want to lose muscle by eating too little. With that said, and with my background in nutrition, I must say that I don't trust the calculators that tell me I need to eat 2000 to lose or whatnot. Everyone is different and everyone's body metabolizes at a different rate. Mine is kinda slow. If I ate more than 1800 on a daily basis, I wouldn't lose.

    Thanks for all the support!

  4. Just keep on truckin!!!! :)

  5. Hang in there-you are doing awesome! Keep it up, you inspired me to set a mini-goal too. Mine is to be in the 150s in 3 weeks-even if its 159.9!
