This is a Pro-Health Weight loss blog.
I've struggled with my weight & body image for half of my life. For more info, you can look at My Story page
I am currently studying to become a Holistic Nutritionist.
CW- 164.6 lbs
Dream Goal-130 lbs
Total lbs lost: -12.2 lbs :( gained a lot back
177 176 175 174 173 171 170 169 168 167 166 165 164 163 162 161 160 159 158 157 156 155 154 153 152 151 150 149 148 147 146 145 144 143 142 141 140 139 138 137 136 135 134 133 132 131 130 129 128 127 126 125 124 123 122 121 120!
And for that, i love him even more. So I guess I have to restart this weight loss and finish it in one shot. No more attempts and fails…
Ugh, this is already exhausting
3 days of BodyMedia Fit!
At least now I know that I burn around 2800 calories on an average work day, so I can shoot to eat 1800 calories on those days. That’ll have me at a steady 2 lb weight loss a week :D
I started yesterday obviously, so goals:
- On work days: 1800 calories or less!
- Non-work days: 1500 calories or less.
- 1 cheat day a week where I can eat 2000 calories
I don’t have any fitness goals yet, but once I get going on this calorie deficit, then I will incorporate workouts, but my job is a solid workout 90% of the time.
Weigh- in day: Sunday
Starting weight: 171.4 lbs [5.22.13]
Current weight: 169.8 lbs [5.26.13]
Testing out how i normally eat for 2 days to have something to compare to. Then 1000 cal deficit tarts Friday or Saturday :)
I did it for few days, died. took a break. Did another few days, died.
Yea no. My belly distended about 6 inches. I literally had the top button on my jeans unbuttoned at ALL times and I was still in pain.
Not a good look for someone who wants to be a bit smaller..
It’s April 1st. No April Fool’s jokes here! But it IS the day I was supposed to start my Couch to 5k program for the umpteenth time.
Except that this time, I vowed to use NO excuse. I wrote down ALL of my 9 weeks of workouts in my calendar and I intend to not miss ONE!
Yet, here I am on Tumblr, procrastinating. It’s 7:22pm. I’m full of chips and salsa to the point that i’m physically burbing up chunky salsa. YUM.
I need someone to be like “Listen Daniela, You’re fat! Not unhealthy, but most of your jeans don’t fit and although you have a closet full of dresses, you had to buy a stretchy XL dress to wear to your boyfriend’s sister’s wedding this weekend. And I know how unromantic you feel with your sexy ass bf when you’re this uncomfortable in your own body so go fucking RUN!”
Thx friend. You’ve been a great help :)
Starting weight: 164.6 lbs
Goal weight: 130 lbs
Wish me luck!
Work and diet. I have been working at Nutrisystem for 2 weeks now just training. Tomorrow starts the real deal.
My mom also bought me a month of Nutrisystem food, so I will be starting the diet as well.
A chubby heath coach is so not cute.
Will post my starting weight tomorrow. Goal is 130 lbs.
lol i was gonna eat and then i saw this.
I was gonna get out of bed and then I saw this.
Find ways to make exercise fun.
I loved cheerleading. Probably why I was 130-140 lbs during my competitive days. *SIGH* Anyone want to make a squad?!
You’re probably like “who is this random bitch on my dashboard?” bc I never post anymore. Partly bc I moved and been desperate for money and jobs so my internet time is mostly about promoting a business or looking for a job.
So I’m on my second beer of the night and decided “Wow, it’s friday. And for once Friday, is MY friday, so I’m gonna take it easy and enjoy myself”
Ofcourse Tumblr comes to mind.
What’s new? Well, I am fat again. Ok fat is ugly, I am overweight again. I am not comfortable in this body, but i find it understandable for my circumstance. At this point, is the time where I can concentrate on me again and lose the weight…again.
I was living in San Francisco with my parents, but moved [back] to Pennsylvania to move in with my boyfriend. 1. I have never lived with a boy, or boyfriend, or significant other. 2. My mom is my best friend, so what the fuck was I thinking in leaving her, I have no idea 3. I have never lived on my own. I have lived with roommates, minus my parents BUT my parents were paying my rent and food, so it wasn’t an independent situation. So here I am, living the dream..
Psh, yea right. Ok so I’m not dumb. I secured a full-time job before moving here. I got a job at a salon that only does blow-outs and updos. As a licensed cosmetologist who is UH-mazing at blow outs, I thought this would be cake. As it turns out, the offer letter I was given and I signed was incorrect. I was NOT making the $3000-$6000 a mth. Yea, i know right? Thats a lot! I was like OH SHIT, IM GONNA BE SO WELL OFF. Negative. I ended up getting 400-500 a mth. My rent is 500 a mth. No bueno.
This is when I looked at jobs that I KNEW Id get hired in an instant bc of my extensive dog background. First job I applied to, I got an interview and I was hired on the spot. I was a Dog Walker. Awesome! I love dogs, I know dogs, this is gonna be sweet. I kept the hair job and eventually realized i’d be making the same or more doing dog walking, so the hair job slowly faded out.
Then the holidays came and everyone was home and no one needed their dog walked.
Short story time: So I was driving to my bf’s nephew’s baptism after working at the salon one day and on my way I saw this HUGE corporate office for Nutrisystem. I thought “Hey that’s weird, I wonder where Nutrisystem HQ is” I go to this baptism after party, come home and immediately look it up. Turns out, Nutrisystem HeadQuarters is 20 min from my house.
“Hello people, My name is Daniela and my life revolves around my weight and weight loss. Nutrisystem has always been something I wanted to try, but couldn’t afford and I’ve heard great success stories from it”
Upon realizing this, my new goal in life was to get a position at Nutrisystem, even if I was the janitor.
So here I am, 3 interviews later, I am a Nutrisystem employee. I am full time. I will be able to support myself comfortably. I can breathe.
So hi, that’s why I am here and I can live again. I don’t get an employee discount yet, but I am being trained in so much about it, I’ve learned the best program for me and what is doable and reasonably priced, so I will be starting the program soon. Since I am certified in Holistic Nutrition counseling, I know my shit. I know that eating a packaged program all day and everyday is terrible for you, so with that, I am going to customize it so I win in every way. Anyone who wants to see what I do, please watch for my future posts, as I will be posting now.
2013 Starting weight: 166 lbs
lowest weight: 134 lbs
highest weight: 176.8 lbs
Goal Weight: 130 lbs (129 to be safe, but I’ll just put 130)
BTW, I just want to say, I’ve been with Nutrisystem for a week, and although I know I will be getting into issues with management and all that like ALL jobs do, it is a really healthy company to work for. We are in cubicles but we have a lady who comes by and leads us into workouts and stretches that we can do at our desk even while on a call. We don’t have to, but it’s nice to have. We have a free gym downstairs, and vending machines with healthier options including nutrisystem foods. Oh and limitless Keurig coffee. oh and breaks every 2 hours. Oh and we can have any kind of exercise equipment at out desk (weights, stability balls, under desk bicycle pedals, etc). OH and we have 2 walking stations
Jealous, yet? I signed up for the end of feb. EVERYONE USES IT!
Finally, I can do squats at my job, without being weird.
ok, clearly I have a lot to say, I apologize.
