Started the night out on a romantic date with Shy Boy, and just got home from The Ex-Crush’s house.

The story between will come later, because now? now I need advil, water and my bed.

Because I have NO self-control I am whitening my teeth right now so I can’t eat. I know, I know… but honestly, I have NO self-control.

Also, pearls on a weekend? Always and forever.

Haven't heard about your new trainer yet. S'up? Any better?

Hi Hi Hi! Yes, I’ve been super MIA on talking about the gym.running.trainers, BUT I got ANOTHER trainer (if you’re keeping track it’s #3), he seems awesome. I start with him on Tuesday. So I’ll post then.

Trainer #2 was TERRIBLE, he had no concept of running, “you do the running think, I’ll help you in the gym,” but that’s not what I wanted…

Anywho, so yes I’ll post about it on Tuesday. Thanks for asking.

Not a question, but I found an article about your city (at least, I think this is where you live...?) on Yahoo...apparently, it's pretty great! http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20100212/lf_nm_life/us_cities_living

Ahh I WISH that was my city. I’m in Toronto, that’s Vancouver. However Vancouver is STUNNING, I’ve been there a few times and would move there in a heart beat if the sun came out a little more there and it didn’t rain as much… it’s so beautiful, I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a vacay.

Sometimes when I get down on myself for no real reason (cough just being a girl cough) I think about how exciting it would be to lose weight, the feeling of accomplishment, the feeling I can do anything, the feeling of setting a goal and following through…

How exciting. Bring on the future, I’m ready for it. Finally.

You said... "One bad meal a week can and will ruin an entire healthy week, your body is working against you, it wants to store fat."

I do not believe that is true. If it were, no one would ever lose weight because it is impossible to be perfect all the time. People even plan a "cheat meal" into their weekly diets. There have even been studies (but not conclusive) that show that having a "bad meal" can prevent your body from lowering your metabolism (obviously a good thing) because it stops thinking that energy (food) is scarce. Of course, I'm sure it all depends on how "bad" your "bad meal" is.
I just hate that people look up to you and may take your advice the wrong way -- for truth. :(

Posting this for the good of mankind… well, fellow tubby people that is.

I’ve never claimed to be an expert. Never. And if I personally eat 1 bad meal a week my weight will stay the same, but yes, in that example I was thinking fairly bad… like burger/fries and then candy and ice-cream ect. Borderline binge eating, a night where one says, “eff it” and just eats 4 slices of pizza, drinks alcohol, gets drunk food ect.

Well, I’m not going to argue this, and I’ll continue posting my little disclaimer, about how I don’t know anything and this is all just from MY personal experience, in the hopes that people take what I say with a grain of salt. I don’t have the answers, umm hello there… I’m still fat over here.

But yes. Point taken… thanks.

Hey! I just wanted to say that I found your blog through the directory a little while back and it's quickly become one of my favorites! (And that we are currently at the same weight haha) Keep up the good work, it's nice knowing that there are other people trying to get weight off too! Feel free to follow my tumblr, though it's not nearly as fun to read as yours :)

Me? A favourite? Oh me oh my, I’m blushing, thank you!! I’m going to go out on a limb here and say the 160s are so the new 120s…

ha! we wish :)

Good luck on your journey too!  and thank you for reading/following/supporting!

I'm so exhausted. I've tried so many different things to lose weight. I'm currently where you were when you initially started. I have the same goal as you do-- 120-125. It just feels like such an enormous mountain to climb, that half the time, I cry thinking about it, and don't bother. I know I sound like a whiny, little baby, but I'm just trying to be honest. For now, my short term goal is 25 lbs. I want to lose that much by July for my cousin's wedding in Toronto. I haven't been there in soo long and want to look really nice before I go. Do you have any advice on how to get and tay motivated? Thanks :) Love you're blog by the way :D

Hello Other E, How are you? Oh wait, I know exactly how you are…

It’s crappy isn’t it? One of the worst things about trying to lose weight is trying to eat healthy and seeing that little number between your toes stay the same or go up, it’s simply heart breaking.  No body said it be easy, but nobody said it be this hard (o.k… that was lame, sorry had that song in my head), BUT I fully understand, finding the motivation to eat healthy and make the right decisions is SO HARD, and sadly I don’t have the answer you’re looking for (otherwise I’d be a very rich lady!), BUT as corny as it sounds you already have the power to lose the weight, to run marathons, to be the person you want to be.  Everything you do is a decision. Everything.  Tell everyone you know you’re trying to lose weight, what? but that’s embarrassing? Well so is being over weight, put pictures up, type up goals, buy the dress you wanna wear to the wedding (ps in Toronto? Wanna meet up? That could be your motivation too! :) email me)

You can do it.  It’s that simple.  Start now. Know you’re worth it. Know you’re not alone.  Know food isn’t what life is about. Not even a little bit. Not even at all.  When you think that initial thought of, “oh I want a cookie” stop, think, note how that thought was wrong, think “yay, I’m not eating that cookie, go me!” Think Positive. You can do it!!!!! You really can.*

Thinking the uttermost happy and best wishes upon you,

Love E

* again, blind leading the blind, just my humble thoughts.
