Data Dump

Yesterday I went back in the blog to see when I did the Whole 30. I noted the weight I was when I ended the Whole 30. Last night I got to thinking about the ups and downs and the why of it. Why did I crap out and regain? This morning I went back and looked at where I went off the rails. (My navel gazing probably isn't all that interesting so feel free to skip this post. I'll understand.)

I started trying to lose weight and be healthier in general on February 27, 2012. I weighed 317.
June 17, 2012- I weighed 269. Down 48 lbs.
July 18, 2012- Finished a Whole 30 and weighed in at 254. Down a total of 63 lbs.
August 3, 2012- Weighed 252. Total loss of 65 pounds. This was the lowest I got.
From August 3 through October 17 I bounced around between 261 and 254.
On October 17, 2012 I weighed 255 (total loss of 62 pounds).
The next weigh in I had recorded was on November 16, 2012. I weighed in at 278. Up twenty-three pounds from previous weigh in a month before. Crazy time at the Jersey Shore. Total stress eating fail.
For the last five months I have been right around that weight, clocking in at 273 yesterday (total loss of 44 pounds or a total gain of 18 pounds depending on how you look at it).

I am not happy with how I let myself fail and stall. I have said it before and feel like an ass saying it again but here I am, saying it again. I don't want to be one of those fat bloggers who weighs the same ridiculous weight year after year.

On August 3, 2013 I want to weigh less than I did on August 3, 2012. So, less than 252. That's twenty-two pounds in fourteen weeks and three days. It is absolutely achievable. I lost 65 pounds in sixteen weeks last year.

If I can't lose twenty-two pounds in fourteen weeks and three days, I might as well just throw the towel in because then I am just a fat train wreck.

Whole 30

Hi guys. Tax season is over and I can breath a little. I've never been a prolific poster on this blog and have been feeling it even less lately. After three years of term papers I find I don't much feel like writing.

My weight has been holding at 273. Too much dairy and bread and not enough vegetables and diligence. On May 1 I will be joining Norma and her minions in a Whole 30. Like a typical fat girl I am putting a condition on it- I am going to continue to use the About Time protein powder in the morning.

I did a Whole 30 in June/July 2012. I felt great and lost 15 pounds. I would like to lose 20 this time around.

Ah shit. Was just reading over the Whole 30 site and saw that protein shakes are a no no. I thought it would just be the stevia that was non-compliant. I started using the About Time a month ago and love it as a nice, easy, protein filled breakfast. I am not a morning person and having to think about what to have in the morning is usually beyond my abilities. Crap, guess I'll go back to hard boiled eggs.
