297.8

 Fatty Friday at GoingCrazy!! WannaGo??!!

 

Okay, folks…I’ve done it now!!

297.8

That’s my weight (in lbs. :))

 I am starting a new weekly post (and linky) to talk about my Weight Loss Journey. Hubby and I weighed in on Thursday and this is my current weight.

I wanted to post this on Friday, but things got hectic and I just didn’t get it done, but here’s the gist of my new weekly posts.

Hubby and I started a new eating plan in May 2010 when we were both at our highest. I was 345.6 lbs on May 1, 2010. Around October/November, I had lost almost 90 lbs and I was somewhere around 255-260…

Then, the Holidays hit.

Hubby had hit a plateau and the center we were going to recommended that he have a “cheat day” and then restart the eating plan. So, we both took a cheat day, which turned into a weekly cheat day, which turned into every Thursday after we weighed in we would gorge on Mexican food, then eat all weekend, and frantically diet on Monday-Thursday again hoping we would lose.

We decided we would eat during the Holidays which turned into Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, January (not really a Holiday, but we were on a roll!), The Boy’s Birthday, Valentine’s Day, My Birthday, and then we just gave up.

We tried to go back to the center and restart, but then the brakes were broken on the Jeep so we couldn’t go weigh in. No weigh in, no need to diet, right??!!

The brakes got fixed and then the A/C in the Jeep broke and we couldn’t subject The Boy to an hour drive in 100 degree weather. Excuses, excuses…and the eating got worse.

Well, the A/C isn’t fixed, but the weather is nicer, and we feel CRAPPY AND FAT!!

Over the course of the past nine months, Hubby has gained 60-70 lbs and I gained almost 40 lbs…no wonder we are tired and cranky all the time.

So, beginning this Friday, September 16, 2011, I will begin posting my weight loss for the week!! When we started this in May 2010, we would post to Facebook and it was incredible how much support we received!! It is so much easier to be disciplined when people are watching and encouraging and I’m hoping this will work on my blog as well.

What about the Linky??!!

 I’m calling it Fatty Friday!! 😉

Well, it’s for those of us who struggle with weight issues, who need encouragement, who have encouraging words to say to those of us still trying…or trying again!! Link up a post that you have written either about your struggle or with some words of encouragement. Be creative!! Then, go through and read each others blogs and encourage one another.

Don’t forget to encourage me!! I need it!!

  1. I will most definately encourage you! It is so hard to diet. I should know as I do it too. I have lost 56lb to date but have at least another 56lb to go. Its hard and I have good weeks and bad weeks. Last week was good at 3lb loss.
    I fully understand you when you say, have a cheat day, which leads to a weekend, then a mad dieting few days until weigh in. Then all the holidays kick in.
    I really empathise with you. Like you I was once slim so know I can do it, but it is so hard. It helps when your partner supports you to do it too. I have put one day aside now where I make lots of diet meals, like curries, chilli’s, chicken stews and chinese dishes from my slimming cook books and then I freeze them, and take them out when we have days where we can’t be bothered to cook.
    I wont bring you English chocolates with me when I come, but I’ll bring you some of my slimming magazines which have helped me greatly.
    I’ll be here every Friday cheering you both on.
