Weigh In Wednesday!!!

Happy Turkey Eve Everyone!! Also known as Faux Friday (gotta love a 3 day work week!). Today is a very minor WIW..only down 1 pound. Better than gaining or not losing a thing so I will take it! Not every week is going to be some stunning showcase of weight loss! I had a fantastic weekend in Newport and I ate incredibly well (and on plan!) the entire time. I also walked a ton so perhaps I am just retaining water or something silly like that! If I can make it through the Holiday season without gaining any weight, without going off plan and keeping my sanity I will consider it a win all around!

In honor of Thanksgiving tomorrow I am going to tell you what I am thankful for (seeing as the alternative would be to celebrate the actual happenings of Thanksgiving...but I am not in a "steal your land for shiny beads and oh by the way would you like small pox with a side of alcoholism with that?" mood!)

I am thankful for....

My amazing support system (made of up you dear readers and various other folks) You are all amazing people and help me to see the light through my often dark haze of self loathing. I appreciate you more than mere words can express ( I would have made you a float for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade but I felt that would have been too showy and ironic)

Medifast..without this plan I would be 94 pounds (possibly more) heavier and wondering how all those other people lose weight without going on the Biggest Loser or having a private trainer.

All the amazing NSV I have had over the past few months (with many more to come)

Gaining my sense of self back in small increments. Its still a work in progress but I can say now that I at least know more about who I am and what my core values are.

That's all I can think of for now but it's a pretty good list! Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!

Weigh In Wednesday!!

Happy Hump Day everyone! A slow week here at TFSTT...lost 2 pounds this week. Just another baby step towards that wonderful 100 pounds lost! Just a mere 7 pounds away...I can almost taste it!

I feel as if I should bulk up this post somehow seeing as how I don't really write much these days. I just don't have much to write about. Which means good things. I am busy, seeing friends, going on dates, having dodgeball parties (turning 30 is awesome let me tell ya!). I leave for Newport, RI tomorrow with my amazing friend Emily and I am beyond excited. Not only because I get to see historic homes that I have always wanted to see but because I get uninterrupted time with my dear friend. There is also the knowledge that I no longer have to struggle with a myriad of things. Let's take a look at that list shall we?

1. Fitting into a booth in a restaurant (You have no idea how amazing it is to me to be able to do that again..such a small thing but huge in my world)

2. Walk around all day without getting sweaty and exhausted (the sweaty part is really the best part..I won't miss that at all)

3. Spend less money since I will only be eating out once a day instead of several times!

4. Getting stared at because I am laughing not because of how I look (there may still be stares for that reason but they are far less these days)

Weigh In Wednesday!!

It's that time again people...Wednesday has arrived and it brings with it great news...7 pounds lost this week!! Which brings me to a grand total of 91 pounds lost in 5 months!! Sometimes I am unable to take in the gravity of my weight loss but today I am going to bask in it! I am a mere 9 pounds away from 100 lost and that is unfathomable for me. Never ever in my wildest dreams did I think that I would be here and in such a short amount of time. I had heard of others doing the same but I never believed it was coming my way. I am still dealing with feelings of being unworthy but today I will shelf that and allow myself to feel great! In honor of this I bring to you my favorite segment "What does it look like?".

I lost these antlers (he must have been a HUGE hit with the lady elk)
The obligatory Rhino shot...see ya later Baby Rhino that was my ass!

I lost this butter sculpture of someone called "Princess of the Milky Way" (She kind of looks like Laura Bush to I lost Laura Bush off my mid section..pretty sweet!)
I lost this Armageddon suit (my question is do you really want to be weighed down during the Armageddon? I think not..)

And one of my all time favorite finds...this insane man's Guinness World Record Bee Suit 
(the bee beard/top hat is merely a bonus)

Weigh In Wednesday!

Hi Everyone..I am going to make this short and sweet..I lost 4 pounds this week which brings me finally into twosville! I am happy about it but at the same time I am not really seeing a big difference in my body from 40 pounds ago. I am not saying I don't see a difference at all but just not anything to jump up and down about. I realize it's strange for other people to hear how kind of dismissive I am of all the weight I've lost but to be honest, it's not a struggle. It's not something I work hard at anymore so I don't really feel like all the praise is something I need. It's just my every day life now so even writing this blog seems somewhat strange. For someone who wishes for moderation in politics I certainly live in extremes. If it's not a huge struggle or something that make a big impact I dismiss it. I should probably explore that more but for another day!
Happy Wednesday Everyone!
