WED WEIGH IN


Hello Gorgeous, it's that time again...Wednesday Weigh In!! What a fabulous image to the left, I found it here. "Fashion is the healthiest motivation for losing weight". Health issues, which is why I started to lose weight, totally trumps fashion; however FASHION is what has kept me going!!!

For years I wished myself away, you may be thinking how can you wish yourself away? I would think to myself, if only I was thinner I would be better at this or I wish I was thinner so I could wear or do that. IF ONLY's consumed my thoughts and distorted the way I saw myself!

After thinking back on all the time and tears wasted over what if's and if only's, I realize now I was wishing myself away. I never said to myself HOT DAMN, I am fabulous just the way I am (okay, well maybe I did, but I didn't believe it), until now!!

I did not believe in myself completely, even though I walked with my head high and faked it most of the time. Luckily, I surrounded myself with good family and friends who would often remind me of how smart, beautiful and sexy I was, even if I was not at my ideal weight! For the longest time, I was also not able to take a compliment, with out turning it around and complimenting back...subconsciously getting the attention off of me and back on to them.

Back in November of 2008, I had to have my Gallbladder removed (minor surgery, painful recovery), at that time my Doctor advised me that if I did not start taking better care of myself I may have future health risks. My family is prone to Diabetes, Heart Disease, Multiple Cancers, High Blood Pressure, sounds like a concoction for destruction. I then set my short and long term goals and started working towards them. I have tripped oh so many times and backslide more times than I care to admit; however I did not quit!

One of the lessons I have learned in my crazy life (and it is crazy) is that weight loss is not a destination, it is a journey and until we understand and really commit to putting effort every day in the choices we make(food, drink, exercise, sleep, etc) the weight may initially come off, but it will not stay off.

Today, I took a walk on the wild side and weighed myself on the Sexy O' Meter...see for yourself I weighed in on the border of HOT and LOVELY...I'll take it. After all, like I said last week: Sexy is a sense of confidence...so work it, own it, love it!
After another crazy weekend, full of social events, here are this weeks weight loss results:
Drum Roll PLEASE....
Goal: To loose 10lbs in 29days for trip to VEGAS
weight loss this week: 4.5
Ponds left to loose: 5.5
Days till VEGAS: 16days

You may be wondering how I lost so much in one week, since it is more than the average woman looses in a week??? The only explanation I can offer is my body was late to the party, but I am glad she finally arrived! I have been continually exercising, eating well, getting enough sleep and had hit one of the longest plateaus...I stayed positive and with a heart full of hope, waited for the day that my body would catch up to the effort I was making and she did!!!
How was your weekend and how are you doing on your journey?

Smooches,
Sassy Chica

Holy crap woman! That's great!!! WooHoo!! You are sooo going to meet your goal. I just know it!

You are so right about what you wrote. Until you surrender your WHOLE SELF to the process, it won't work. Once you are on "the other side" and see how great it is, you'll never go back. Your mind is changed forever. Good for you for finally coming on over! It's a great place to be and I'm so glad I am here with you. :)

Great job. My body is often late to the party as well. You can totally make your goal, and when you do I'll be here to celebrate with you!

Great job! Very inspiring :-)

Cristina said...

Hey there Sasstastic!

Keep going! ! !

I am going to kickboxing tonight. It's a 90 minute class where you burn 800 or so calories for 10 dollars!!

I've fallen off the wagon and haven't been in over a month. But tonight it's on. I guarantee you that I will be at near collapse status because the workouts are so intense. The first time I went my husband had to come pick me up...I was slumped over in the front seat of our other car!!!

I am about 145 pounds and at 4'11" that's pretty much obese - I am Latina though and have the boobs and hips to match! If I can get down to 120?? HELP ME STAY STRONG!

Stay sexy mama!

Cristina

That's amazing! You go girl (snaps fingers). You are right - sexy is a state of mind. Being thin probably helps that but even skinny people have self-image problems. You sure seem fabulous to me. After all, you are one sassy chica! :-) Best of luck to you in reaching your goal!

Archana said...

Love this. It echos all my feelings on staying fit. ;) If you want to have permanent weight loss, it has to be done right. And right does not include starvation, etc. You've got to eat, but burn and work towards a healthier, fitter you. <3

Little Ms Blogger said...

Congrats!

What a great post. I totally could relate to it and am now finally wanting to lose weight for me and my health.

I love "is that weight loss is not a destination, it is a journey and until we understand and really commit to putting effort every day in the choices we make(food, drink, exercise, sleep, etc) the weight may initially come off, but it will not stay off." So true.

I want a scale that will tell me I'm sexy, ravishing, cute, lovely, hot, perfect or fine. Seriously. someone should be marketing these...

Well, If you have ever thought about writing some script to automate those things that you are doing several times each day, then you have a great and easy way to automate the entir e process. It comes without saying that a few imacros and firefox add-ons will automate all actions connected to a browser (Mozilla). If you wish to automate your system as such, then you'll need another script, easy commands can automate your system. Even a beginner can automate things using a simple software called as sikuli all you need to do is to inform Sikuli what to do by giving some screenshots and easy commands.
A GUI will be used with Sikuli. Sikuli is an open siurce scripting application that will use a combination of simple commands like click, type, wait and so on. There's no internal API support, it just searches the screen for the image in the screenshot-that implies that you can use it for anything. There is literally no limit on how you use it to automate things.
This is too good to be true, however if you watch the following video, you will come to know that this is really easy. If you visit their home page, you get a lot of tutorials and support; it can be a cake walk even for beginners. You'll check the video as well as get the software at [url=http://technoages.com/operating-system/apple-mac-os/automate-everything-through-a-simple-script-make-your-computer-listen-to-you/]TechnoAges.com[/url]
