5% Gone!

And ALMOST 10 pounds :) This is my outfit from the wedding. I know I don't look happy, because I wasn't. I felt so uncomfortable that day. I just felt like everyone was staring at every little lump you could see through my dress. I held back tears the entire day, so that made me really start to take my diet seriously. Everyone loved my shoes tho!

I weighed in this morning at 181.4. I've been trying monthly weigh ins, and I am down 2.8 since my last weigh in in August. I'm hoping to be out of the 180s in the next few weeks.

I am doing surprisingly well with my no soda/no fast food challenge. I've drank soda on two occasions when I was having an adult beverage. I mean, what the hell else can you drink Jack Daniels with besides a diet coke? I cannot even begin to tell you how much better I am feeling since I stopped drinking soda and eating fast food. I'm not bloated and I don't feel snacky like I used to. I am really starting to believe that weight loss is 80% diet and 20% exercise, because I've only worked out a few times the past month or so. I do hate not working out. I feel that I need to choose between sleeping and exercising, and sleep usually wins.

My new challenge will be is to take at least two classes a week at the gym. I'm paying for a memebership and classes are included, so I should probably go don't you think?


  1. I think you look great! I'm sorry you didn't feel good in your outfit. There really is nothing worse than feeling like you don't look good. We've all been there so I know how you feel. Good job on the loss!

    I think if you work out 3x a week you'll start to see a big difference in your body. I know working out for me has made me lose a lot of inches. I do Body Pump at the Y and some other stuff. I've even taken up jogging. I don't LOVE to exercise but I do it because in the end I know it'll be better than not exercising. You can do this!!

  2. Yay JaJo! Nice job! Maybe for this week aim for 1 class so that you don't have to argue with the sleep. Then increase it from there!

  3. JaJo you look fantastic! Your doing great!

  4. You look wonderful in that dress. If people were staring I'm certain it was because you looked fierce. I also hope you enjoy those classes. Be sure to give us some reviews. :)
