Huzzah! Progress Continues! (Monday Weigh-In)

Good Morning, and Good Monday to you! Well, no Monday is really ever “good”, but you know what I mean. Hopefully your weeks are all getting off to a semi-decent start. Despite how early I had to wake up my morning actually started out pretty nice, mostly due to having this little punk being all cute in my face:

Lazy puppy. I tried to get a picture of Harry too, but between him being dark and my room being dark, and the picture just didn’t turn out very good. So, just imagine another dog doing pretty much the same thing and you’re in good shape, haha. I got up, started the process of getting ready, and weighed in:

Starting Weight: 246 lbs
Previous Weight: 203.8 lbs
Current Weight: 201.8 lbs
Difference: -2.0 lbs
Total Loss-to-Date: 44.2 lbs

So, that’s another 2 pound loss from last week, on top of the 3.2 pound loss from the week before! Huzzah! I knew it was super unrealistic to think that I’d be under 200 this week (even on a week where I don’t eat out a lot, a 4 pound loss is asking a lot) but I think that next week I should definitely be in a whole new century of weight! Very exciting. I’ll be happy to say goodbye to the 200s FOREVER! I guess once I get over 45 pounds lost, I should take another set of progress pics. I’m still working up the nerve to actually post those on here… maybe in another 40 or 50 pounds… hahahaha.

After I did a little mini-celebratory dance in my bathroom, I got dressed for work. I know you guys probably aren’t interested, but I’m extremely vain (haha…ha?) so here are some shots of my ensemble (apologies for the blurriness):

Dress: Forever 21
Cardigan: Old Navy
Belt: New York & Company
Boots: DSW
Claire Necklace: Stella & Dot

I actually purchased the dress I’m wearing today just a couple weeks before I started my weight loss venture. I got it at the GINORMOUS Forever 21 store in Times Square in NYC when I went there with some friends, and was excited to find that this particular store had a plus-sized section. See, your average Forever 21 store isn’t particularly plus-size friendly, but this was a 4-story (!!) store so I figured there was a good shot of finding SOMETHING that would fit me. And there it was, a little section tucked into one of the corners on the second floor labeled “Faith 21”. I went crazy and bought like 4 dresses because I was just so excited to find trendy items that fit! Of course, a couple of months later and it was all kind of useless, haha. So I’m still trying to get a little wear out of them. This dress is pretty big on me now, but by covering it up with a cardigan and belting the outside, I can hide the fact that it’s super baggy underneath. Still works!

For breakfast this morning, I prepped a PB & J bagel thin and snagged an apple:

It was very strange, though… after I had woken up, weighed in, gotten dressed, and made my breakfast, I started feeling really weird. Like, my stomach started feeling all gurgly and awful, and it’s still very unsettled. I’m not sure what’s going on with me, I kind of felt like I was going to throw up as I was driving into work… I’m still feeling quite “off”, so I’m not sure how the rest of this day is going to turn out. I’ve only managed to eat about half of my bagelwich and apple, and I’ve been trying to down a lot of water, but my stomach is still feeling very… ugh. It’s just very strange to me that I didn’t start feeling bad until after I had gotten up and moved around — usually it’s the opposite (you wake up feeling bad, but start to feel better as you go about your day.)

Here’s hoping that I don’t deteriorate throughout the rest of the day, because I have plans to meet my friend Lizzie for dinner tonight! Hopefully my stomach will settle soon though… Anyway! Have a great rest of your day, everyone!
