it's almost time again....

so, i'm finally updating again. at the request of one of my regular readers....i'm terrible at this blogging thing! lol!!!

so, last week i lost 7.8lbs! my total is 106.2lbs lost.

great right? except here's my issue. every time i hit the 100lb mark, i sabotage myself. i end up gaining the following week or two....

i WI on thursday....so far i've been completely OP this week...so....here's hoping!!!

(i'll try and remember to update on thursday!)

DBF pix!!!!!!!!

hey guys!!!!

so, i have had a rough eating week already. i seem to sabotage myself when i get close to a milestone, or in this case to goal. boooooo. (i could also be over eating cuz i'm due for TOM...) but i'm gonna start fresh tomorrow! i'm still on track with my exercise, probably more so than i've ever been!

well, the moment you've all been waiting for. pictures of DBF!!!!!! :D and he's so darned cute!

feelin good!

well, it was brought to my attention that i haven't updated this blog in about a month.....oops! sorry guys! i just didn't really think anyone read this! but here's an update for you!

as of this week's WI (last thursday) i was finally back down to where i was before going to edmonton! actually, i weigh less!

i am now at my lowest weight....165.6! i am down 103.8!

woot woot! this puts me only 20.6lbs away from my goal weight! plus, i have my consultation with the plastic surgeon regarding my tummy tuck booked for september 19th! i'm really nervous, but i know it's a good thing. i can't believe i'm only 20lbs away....so in order to get myself to goal, i have created a challenge on the boards. all are welcome. the challenge is to stay OP and lose 20lbs. you are not under any sort of time constraints or anything. the point is just to hold ourselves accountable if we fall off the wagon, and get back up on it!

i guess that is pretty much it for me....

best weekend ever!

so not only did i hit my 100lb mark at my WI on thursday (101.8 to be exact!) but i also went to edmonton from friday to monday! it was so fun! i went skydiving! twice! all the ladies in edmonton are fabulous and i miss you terribly!

hopefully i manage to keep off the 100 pounds after all the eating and drinking i did this weekend! lol!

happy father's day!

:) what is everyone doing for father's day? mine will prove to be a WW test. going to the mandarin. i've eaten fairly light all day to conserve my points. hopefully it helps cuz i gained weight last week again! i'm finding that i'm starting to hit a bit of a wall. gain some, lose some, gain some, lose some.

**le sigh**

i'm just gonna keep plugging away i guess!

boys are no longer smelly!

nope. not one bit. in fact, they are fantastic! :)

well, just one in particular. and i guess he's not a boy, he's a man, but details aside he's superfantabulous and i am very very very smitten with him. :) we got to spend some time together today and it was so nice! we used to hang out on sundays all the time when we were just friends, now we don't get the chance as much cuz he usually spends time with his kids. plus we used to spend our time working out, now we just hang out and enjoy each other's company. today we did a really good run and went for a swim then hung out in the sauna. it was nice!

so you may have noticed that i said we went for a run. those of you who know me at all know that i don't run! well, i've decided to train to run the 5k around the bay next year. i gave myself a year to prepare in. hopefully i can do it! i'm sure with my trainer's help i can do it!

so i'm now down 91.6 lbs! i have 4 more weigh ins before my 1 year anniversary on WW. i want to lose 8.4 lbs in that time. it can be done but it will be tight. i'll be pretty close to the 100lb mark on june 7 anyways. (i'm close now!)

i'm going to take a new progress picture when i hit the 100 lb mark. hope it's soon!

boys are smelly....

this is what i've decided. boys are smelly.

he doesn't actually smell....in fact, i love the way he smells. however, his home situation is quite complicated (most of you who read this blog know the deal) and he's starting to feel bad for "putting me in the position i'm in" when it's my decision. so now he's starting to second guess the relationship.

this sucks cuz i'm totally smitten with him and have pretty much fallen head over heals for him.

humbug. we have been talking it through, but i'm not really sure quite where we stand right now.

anywhoo, i'm just under the 90lb mark! woot woot! i'm hoping to lose again this week....hopefully the stress will help! lol!! i want to hit the 100lb mark by june 7 which is my 1 year anniversary on WW. it'll be tight, but it can be done!

i also found out that i will be able to get a tummy tuck covered by ohip! while it's exciting, it's also kind of scary.....but that's at least 35 pounds away, so i'll worry about that later!

where have i been???

wow, been a while since i've posted here...sorry guys. everyday life just gets busier and busier!

so i'm now down 85.8 pounds. unfortunately, i'm starting to hit a bit of a wall. no plateau as of yet, but i'm getting to a point where i sabotage myself. i seem to constantly want to snack. argh. i'm really going to force myself to buckle down tho. no more snacking!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i want to hit the 100lb lost mark by june 7. it's going to be tight.

boys are so cute. :)

i'm working on getting a pic of us to post so you can all see him....the whole 2 people who read my blog.......

well, i better get ready to go to spinning class. i'll try not to wait forever before posting again!

TOI Baby!!!!!

sooooooo much fun! i had a fantastic time!

for those of you who don't know what it is, it stands for Toronto Invasion. the gta was invaded by tonz of fellow WWers, including some from edmonton AB and brandon MB!!! (i love you guys btw!!!!)

the weekend started out with me driving from work in welland to toronto. should have been a simple thing....right guys? not for me. i'm special. i got very very lost. took me 3 freaken hours. i finally get there and we went to souther accents for dinner. very good! had 3 glasses of wine with dinner...not a good idea....but the waiter was cute! then we went to the pub where me and my long lost older twin (IzzyBear!!!!!) got very very drunk together and i got to play wingman! go me! then it was back to my car......to find 2 parking tickets. boooourns!

the next day we went to the CN tower for lunch and it was fantastic! some random little boy on the glass floor fell in love with me and attatched himself to my leg. it was cute...and creepy.

unfortunately, after all the fun i had to go home. so i did. at which time i decided i had blown my WW week so badly already that i wanted pizza for dinner. which i got and ate the leftovers on tuesday for lunch.

after all the food and booze, i managed to only gain.......

.8 of a pound! woot woot! go me!

Tuesday, March 4, 2008


woo hoo! down 78.8 pounds!!!!! i posted a new progress pic. i now officially weigh 190.6 lbs!!!!

Friday, February 1, 2008

who feels like crap??

i do i do! **jumps up and down waving arms**

so guess what my favourite souvenir from my vacation is?

my raging uti. argh. went to the doctor today and got some antibiotics so it's getting a bit better already. can't wait till it's gone! but considering some ppl come back from vacay with malaria and hepatitis and god knows what else, i got off easy eh? lol

weigh in on thursday morning. did two workouts today, cyclefit in the a.m. and athletic hour (it's just random aerobics) at night. hopefully i can lose the weight i gained on vacay. i'm so close to onderland....if i could get there this week, that would be awesome! but we'll see. i'll be happy just lose some! :)

Thursday, January 24, 2008


so, i'm back from my first WI since i got back from vacay. since i missed last week's WI, it was for 2 weeks. ready for this??

i was up 4.8

argh. i guess there's nothing to do now but just get back on the horse and keep trying right?

Monday, January 21, 2008

i'm home!

well guys, i'm back from my vacay! i'm gonna post a couple pics, but not too many.

i think i gained about 10 pounds on vacation, but it was so worth it! :) i had a blast! i went horseback riding, and saw a local school, and went to the beach, and on a catamaran boat, and all kinds of other stuff! :D

still, it's nice to be home.

Friday, January 11, 2008


OMG! i leave for the dominican in 31 hours!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thursday, January 10, 2008

so tuesday afternoon i had my first mammogram....not fun, but glad i did it.

so i leave on sunday morning for my vacation....if anyone has any suggestions of stuff i shouldn't forget, please let me know!!!!

that's about all for now i guess, gotta go get ready for work. i will be posting a new progress picture when i lose 70 total and hit onderland! can't wait!!!!!!

almost vacation time!

well, today was a busy busy day! i got up and went to cyclefit this morning. of course, when i get to the ymca, they inform me that my membership has expired and it's renewal time. argh...fees went up. bah humbug. lol! it's worth it tho.

so i renew my membership before class. go cycle, then do a little ab work. then i went to the bank and got some american money for my trip. :) then i went to the beauty supply shop to get some stuff for work. then i had subway for lunch. again. it's just about the only place i feel comfortable eating at on the WW plan. i know i could have mcdonalds if i wanted it, but i feel icky eating it. lol!

so then i had to go to the doctor. for a mammogram. i was not impressed. they squished my boobs and it was uncomfortable. but i suppose it's a good thing to do. but definitely not fun.

so then i went to the laundromat and did 3 loads of laundry. god i hate laundry.then i went for a tan, then came home and put away the laundry! lolso that was my day off....a very busy day off. the next few days leading up to my trip will be particularly busy. but the trip will be sooooooo worth it!

Saturday, January 5, 2008

what a day....

oy. what a freaken day. work was insanely busy today....i didn't even get to eat lunch until like, 4 o'clock! but it was kinda good cuz i went to the gym after work so i had some energy! lol!

worked out sooooo hard.....stupid dave making me run up and down flights of stairs with weights.....argh......but it's for the better. besides, after he finished beating me up at the gym i got to hang with him at timmies, and that's always good times! lol!

tomorrow is a busy day full of sleeping in, going tanning in preparation for my vacation, and going to the gym. then giving dave a haircut. that's about it. lmao....so busy.....hahaha!

i can't believe i leave for vacation in one week! i'm freaking out, but it's gonna be so much fun!!!! puerto plata, here i come!

p.s. i start teaching my regular cyclefit class at the ymca on wednesday! it will be every wednesday at 7 o'clock pm. i can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thursday, January 3, 2008

WI today....

so i had weigh in this morning. i won't lie, i was slightly dissappointed. i was down .6 of a pound.

now, i know everyone is gonna go "but you were still down!" and i know, and i'm glad. but i killed myself this week at the gym....i guess i just really wanted to reach my goal of being under 200 pounds before my vacation. right now i'm 204 exactly....so close!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i guess we'll see....i have one more WI before i leave!

Tuesday, January 1, 2008

my first post on my new blog!

well, i decided to create a blog for the new year. no real reason, i just felt like i wanted somewhere to post progress pictures and random little blurbs. :)

so a little background....

i originally joined the YMCA last january. i was trying to diet and work out and lose weight by myself without following any kind of plan. it wasn't working. so, on june 7 2007 i attended my very first Weight Watchers meeting.

i weighed in at a staggering 269.4 lbs. wow. holy crap. i've been working hard at the gym and on the WW plan. my weigh ins are every thursday morning. thus far i've lost 64.8 pounds, and i weigh 204.6

i am leaving on vacation on january 13 for a week to the dominican republic. i'm hoping to be under 200 lbs by then, but who knows?? :)
