Yes, I disappeared. I’m working on it. I will be trying to figure this whole weight loss thing out and get back in the game.

Leave it to me to fall off the face of the earth

My weight has been suffering. As in, it increased. A lot. I got up to 268 pounds guys. It was getting to the point where I was pretending it wasn’t an issue, pretending it was fine and it would take care of itself. It didn’t and it won’t. I got on the scale three weeks ago and decided this wasn’t okay. I have since made an effort to change my habits slowly but surely. I no longer drink pop, and I drink much more water. I eat breakfast again (even if only a yogurt or premade and purchased shake). I’m making better (not the best) choices and getting ready to hit the gym.

Today I weighed myself. 252.2 lbs. In a matter of just a few weeks I’ve dropped about 15 lbs. Yes much of that was bloat, I know that’s not all fat loss. However, it’s a good start and a great way to get me motivated. My wedding is in (almost exactly) 14 months. It’s time to crack down.

I don’t know if I reblogged this last time I saw it, but it makes me so happy.

This needs to be at the top of my dash again.

Guess who just joined a gym

THIS GIRL!

$20 a month, access to all their locations across Canada, unlimited use of massage chairs and tanning beds. Am I finally doing this???

I know it has been a while…

And I won’t lie. The reason is I stopped caring. Trying. Paying attention. Then my wedding dress arrived. Then I cared. I joined two dietbets, one by ShayCarl and another by blogilates. If you aren’t sure what a dietbet is, you bet money on your weight loss. In my case both bets were $30 and the goal is to lose 4% of your body weight in 28 days. The bet by Shay ended and I won!
I started at 260.4 and needed to lose 10.4. I lost 13.3! I’m so motivated to keep at it and win the blogilates one too. The goal for the second bet is 248.6 which I’ve already hit, so I’m motivated to do even better!
I think I’m back in action guys! 17 months to the wedding… I can do it!

i am actually seriously concerned that someone has yet to invent a Harry Potter marathon as in 26 miles of dodging dementors, casting spells, running through the forbidden forest, running part of the race on a broomstick, dressing up, scoring quidditch goals, and for the grand finale casting a spell on old voldy at the finish line…WHY IS THIS NOT A THING EVERYONE WOULD EXERCISE

Time for some stretching and easing myself back into some of the @blogilates workouts. Trying out the #AprilAbs calendar. Even if I don’t do every video each day, it’s still better than nothing. #yogamat #minicycle #letsdothis
