Progress Jars!

In Inspiration, My Progress by Tanya2 Comments

I read a suggestion online about creating a “pounds lost” jar for a visual motivator and reminder of your progress.  Seeing as how I’ve struggled so much with the last bit of my weight, I thought this might help me!  I decided to do it very spur of the moment and didn’t want to take time to go to the store, so I just used things I already had at home.  Here’s what I came …

We are on our first beach vacation EVER in this photo!  I am still not entirely comfortable wearing summer clothes, but I wouldn’t have even CONSIDERED a beach vacation before I lost weight!   157.0 ~ lost 88.8 pounds

Again, not the best photo.  The exciting thing for me is that I am back to my weight goal with WW AND I wearing my WW long sleeve shirt that is a little more fitted than I would normally wear! 158.8 ~ lost 87 pounds

This isn’t the best photo, but it’s all I have. These days I am only in pictures as a background or an accessory to our nieces.   😀   I’m still 12 pounds heavier than my goal weight at WW (and 25 pounds over my ultimate goal), but I’m working on it! 170 (ish) ~ lost 75.8 pounds

Merry Christmas 2012

Apparently this year was all about the new babies in the family because I don’t have one photo of my husband and I together!  I probably avoided the camera more this year too, since my weight is up 15-20 pounds.   🙁

Cookie Exchange

In My Progress by Tanya0 Comments

Does anyone else participate in a cookie exchange?  I went to my first one tonight.  It was a lot of fun, but now I have tons of extra temptation.  I made sugar cookies from the recipe my mom used to make. I LOVE these cookies.  It’s a good thing I gave so many of them away! In retrospect, this probably wasn’t the best idea. I’ve been struggling with my weight as it is, so why …

Happy Birthday 2012

In My Progress by Tanya0 Comments

My birthday this year was so different than any other thanks to my nieces being with us!  It was a great celebration, but I’m not feeling so good about myself right now.  My weight is in the 170s.  I see the picture of me by the tree, and I just can’t believe it. I’m wearing the baggy sweater to try to disguise it, but I can’t.  It’s clear I’ve gained 15 pounds.  What is wrong …

No More 2nd Job!

I am no longer employed by WW.  I have totally mixed emotions, but the biggest feeling is RELIEF and a sense of freedom.  I feel embarrassed and I feel like a bit of a failure, but I’m glad it’s done.

Still Gaining

I really didn’t want to post this photo. The baby is adorable, but I don’t look so cute.  I’m up 9 pounds over my WW goal and I’m SO frustrated!!! 167.2 ~ lost 78.6 pounds

I’ve been feeling bad because I am still not back to my lowest weight or even my WW lifetime weight, but it still feels pretty great to be able to wear this dress.  Three years ago I would have tried to get out of going to the wedding or worn pants and been cranky the whole time.   😀 165.6 ~ lost 80.2 pounds

Stress Eating

In My Progress by Tanya0 Comments

As you may have noticed by my weekly weigh ins, I have gained about 10 pounds over the last two months.  My head is just not in a good place!  I have had too much going on and have been putting my own weight on the back burner and eating my feelings.  SIGH!  I hate that this is still a problem for me!!!
