These past two weeks have been nothing but stress and roller coaster emotions between work stress and trying to find somewhere to live (which I haven’t). Haven’t been to the gym and went on a crazy carb/sugar/alcohol binge. Result: I gained almost 3 lbs. Blah. From -78 to -75. Ugh. After this wknd’s move, I’ll be able to settle back into my routine, hit the gym, and let the carbs go. No more alcohol until I reach -100. Gym at least 3x/week. It’s my first major setback, hopefully my last. Maybe it will have worked in my favor and keep me from plateauing.
I don’t think I completely fell off the horse. I think I just slipped a bit.
The heat has officially turned on in NYC tenements so that signals the unofficial Winter Boo season.
What is a Winter Boo? Someone you acquire to keep you warm and cuddly in these colder months. Someone who occasionally goes to the movies or concerts with you. Might go ice-skating if you’re into that. You might even cook for your Winter Boo…hey, why not.
Below are the important questions you must ask before deciding upon a Winter Boo. Note: the expiration date on a Winter Boo is March 15 (the ides of March). That’s when you have to decide if that person is going to transition into a Springtime love. Decisions, decisions.
1. Do you have at least 95% of your teeth? How many times a day do you brush?
2. Do you have any diseases that can be transferred through kissing, sex, or general touching/breathing?
3. Do you have your own living space? If you live with your parents, do you at least work opposite shifts? Do you have money for a hotel room?
4. Do you believe in Santa Claus?
5. Will I be expected to escort you to family holiday events? If so, please list the names of your drunk aunts and molesting uncles.
6. Will you try to borrow money from me?
7. Are you married/involved/otherwise creeping? If you are, what’s the likelihood of your s/o coming after me with a weapon?
8. Where do you see yourself in 5 months?
9. What’s the average length of time that you last in one sexual session before you start getting lazy/bored?
10. Are you ok with us ending this on March 15 if need be?
Bonus: On a scale of 1 to firy depths of hell, how warm are you in a cuddle?
If you would just pass this out, I’m pretty sure you could get the answers you need and make the right determinations about your Winter Boo for the 2011-2012 season.
Excerpt: “I love to flirt and so does my man. We enjoy and include pornography in our experiences from time to time and I openly express my appreciation of attractive men and women to my partner.
What has been driving me crazy is his overt flirtation with “real” women on social networking sites. It’s not a matter of appreciating a nice photo but lengthy exchanges that culminate in him suggesting they get a drink or her asking him to “hit her up” and him replying “that’s what’s up” ”
I read your post about running a 5k. At my heaviest I was knocking on 500lbs. Since January I've lost over 80. Ive also run 2 official 5ks and 3 practice 5ks. Well I don't call it running so much as an enhanced waddle. My point is, if I can do it rest assured you'll be knocking out a marathon sooner than you think. Congrats on your #75in4. See you at the finish line.
That’s really dope!! You’re inspiring :) Congrats on the loss and good luck on the rest of your journey :)
So I’m talking to @huny on gchat and thanking her for 50-11th time for giving me these great, smaller clothes. I realize that people are staring at me more now, like in admiration or awe. It’s like I’m more statuesque than some random big girl. And I FEEL better. I feel better because I look better in clothes that actually fit me well. I just feel better about things… It’s crazy. I feel proud of myself. Proud that I have committed to this in the way that I have. I could have been lazy and just let the surgery do its thing, but I’ve pushed myself to eat right and go to the gym on top of that. I feel stronger, have more endurance, and everything is just better. I stop and stare at myself sometimes and I’m like “Is this really me?”
My waist:hip ratio is .72 though, which means I’m generally at lower risk for obesity-related health problems. Pear shaped women don’t usually have the same health issues as apple shaped women. Our issues are more orthopedic than anything.
I also have a body fat percentage of 28.33% which for women is normal or “acceptable”. Isn’t that interesting? height, shape, fat distribution, muscle mass all play a roll in how I “look” and why so many people never believed I weighed as much as I did.
*this information comes from www.bmi-calculator.net but I’ve checked it in other places and the information remains the same*
that picture you posted in the blue shirt really shows that bottom struggle you tweet about, you def. have a video vixen career ahead of you I can feel it (joking) but i think you look fab. congrats on your success so far, I know more is to come for you. - Just wanted to give some positive energy
Thank you for that! The support I get from you guys really means so much! Girl, this bottom struggle is REAL!! lol But, I’m doing what I can. If its meant for me to be shaped like this, so be it. I’m going to do my part and let the chips fall where they may :)
My goal for my chest was 38 inches. I’m at 36.5. Band: 36.5 Bust: 42. Bra calculator said that makes me a 38DDD. Yeah, um, no. Im sitting comfortably in a 40C right now. the 38Cs fit, but the 40Cs make me feel better about life lol
So I lost another 1.5 inches off my chest, 2.5 off my waist, and 0 off my hips and thighs. What does that mean? A more exaggerated shape. I wish my hips and thighs would work with me, but they seem to be waging mutiny. My top keeps shrinking and my bottom is like “Nah, we good over here”
Lost half an inch off my calf and a quarter off my bicep. Not too shabby.
