R2 Day 7 - Boom Shakalakalaka

Weight: 129.5 pounds - Waist: 35 inches

I've lost over 20 pounds! AND I haven't been under 130 in about 3.5-4 years! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOT!!

Yeah, I'm psyched. I think I finally am realizing what this all means. I may actually wear a bikini for the first time since I graduated from high school. This is my goal. I actually think I'm going to buy a cute one for inspiration. And even more exciting is that I have someone in my life who has been *super-critical* of the weight I gained, and in a very hurtful way. I am so, so excited to send this person an awesome picture when I reach my goal weight with a little note saying only "Eat your effing heart out." A little extreme? Maybe. I was really hurt and upset by many things this person has done over the years to make me feel awful about the weight that I put on. (As if I needed any help to feel bad about it.) I feel like now there will still be a nasty comment from old meanie, no matter how I look, but there will be nothing I'm not sure of, not confident about. My insecurities seem to be melting away along with the fat. I am in a great place, and happy with who I am. I don't need anyone to agree or confirm how I feel, I know that this is a good thing and I am bettering myself through obtaining more optimal health. Eff yeah.

On a very different note, I had the most delicious lunch yesterday. I made the small piece of filet mignon that I picked up at Whole Foods the other day, which I seasoned with Montreal Steak seasoning. My George Foreman grill cooked it up perfectly for me, and I gobbled that damn thing right up. I want to pick up another piece tomorrow, or maybe I'll just get some from the regular supermarket, since I'm sure it's a lot cheaper. I did, however, have a few tortilla chips with salsa at the game last night. But I didn't eat dinner, so that's probably why I still lost 1.5 pounds. :) I think I'm going to have eggs for lunch, and broccolini for dinner with some chicken or shrimp. I'm really trying to avoid eating the chicken, since I really don't like it. Seriously, I think I might hate chicken. Maybe we have some of that Montreal Chicken seasoning, or I could always use the steak one... hmm, good ideas. I need to pick up some cauliflower too, so I can make the yummy recipe. :)

This afternoon (it's a beautiful day in Boston, btw) I'm going to go out and buy a WiiFit as a gift for myself with my tax refund, then use the rest to pay off bills/debts. I also just want to take a long ride in the beautiful sunshine, since it's been so nasty here most of the past week. I kind of want to go climb Blue Hills, but I don't think I have anyone to go with me, and its not the kind of thing you do alone. Oh well. Maybe next weekend. I want to try and do that as often as possible this year, since it's great exercise and pretty fun. I also wouldn't mind, when I'm in a little better shape, going on a real hike in New Hampshire or something. Or, even better, going on a hike and then camping in the mountains. Bobby and I really want to go camping this summer. It's a great alternative to a real vacation, since we can't afford one. A couple of people have said they would be interested in going, so that will be pretty cool.

That'll be all for today, if anyone is even still reading after this super long post. :)

Have a glorious day!


  1. Oh. My God. I just typed out an uber-long and awesome response to your post and when I submitted it wouldn't go thru! ARGH! X(

    Oh well - to sum it up, conGRATS on becoming a 20-club member (!!) and please dear God give me the address of that vile, hurful TWIT so I can mail them a big box full of POOP. God, that burns my @$$. The best revenge is living well, dahling. Karma will take care of the rest.

    Have mucho fun on your hike!

  2. Congrats! I can't wait to get to that number! Hey I hear you! I can't wait to be able to go hiking with my family - or even just doing active things and not feeling exhausted afterwards. Good Luck and enjoy it!!

  3. OMG wow! So happy for your success! Hope I achieve the same soon!
