With all my stress from yesterday I forgot to mention, I had a NSV yesterday, The boyfriend and I went to the mall yesterday to buy birthday presents for his little sister, and while there I went to go try on some shorts. I took a size 9 into the change room, had to then ask Adam to get me a size 7, then I had to get him to go back and get me a size 5, and the 7's were huge on me! Sadly they were out of 5's in fact they only had size 13 and 15 left- the two sizes that I was before I started losing weight- and at that weight I would never be seen wearing shorts!

On days when I feel like a whale I have to remember that I have made a lot of progress, and to look at the big picture.

Hello stress! I am leaving on the 27th for Hawaii! woo. I'm going to spread my mums ashes- not so woo. Now I have lost my passport. I found this out Friday morning. If I had my birth certificate it wouldn't be so bad, I could just walk into the passport office, drop around 160$ ( its around 80 for a passport and 80 for it to be express printed up) and get a new one, the money thing sucks, but I'm not that worried. But alas, I don't have a birth certificate, its been lost for years . In order to get a passport, you need your BC, so I had to drop another 60 $ to get a birth certificate urgently printed up. It take 2- 5 business days. So I could be getting it Monday- Friday. The it takes a day to print up a passport. So worst case scenario I'll be running around next Monday to get a passport for Tuesday, as we are flying out at about 6 am on the 27th. FRICK FRICK FRICK. This is a lot of stress! I am praying that I get this all worked out. I need to go to Hawaii.
End rant.

Oh, Mother Nature.

Today was a great springy feeling day, the sun was shining, warm weather. However in the morning its still a tad nippy, so I wore my coat to work this morning. I now know that my coat has a whole in its pocket where my debit cad has since escaped. Drat. Tomorrow I need to wake up and go to the bank to get a replacement- again!
Silver lining is that its a nice 3.2 km walk round trip. My city is ridiculously hilly, so I'll be able to work on my legs while walking up to the bank. I am also taking this as mother nature's way of telling me to hang up my wool pea-coat till Fall.

Also- Yesterday I was in my night class eating a kiwi fruit,( a fruit that I am so happy to have rediscovered after years of not eating it) and a girl stopped me, telling me that I am the first person she has ever seen eat it with the " fur" on it. Am I odd for eating them fur and all ?

Weigh in- April 13, 2010.

Dun dun dun. Well I lost 8 lbs in the last week! Not shabby if I say so myself. This was my first week back dieting, so I understand that a lot of it is water weight, but I'll take it. Next week I will be expecting more realistic , aka smaller number. I'm going to try to push for 2 lbs.
I'm only 3.8 lbs away from my lowest weight, and I really hope that I can get there by the time I go to Hawaii on the 27th.

Weekly Goals-
1. To drink at least 1 litre of water everyday.
I am no a huge water fan, it usually feels heavy in my mouth. In this last week I started drinking 2 litres of Crystal light daily to get used to being hydrated. So this week I am trying to gradually switch CL for water. I can do it!

2. To work out 3 times a week.
Now I know a lot of you out there work out almost every day( awesome job!), but I'm not that type of person- yet. So Ill try three times this week and hope to add to it every week. I am closer to my goal weight, but still have a little flab, and it want to be fab, so I need to work on toning up!

Starting Over.

Well last year I kept this blog as a way to monitor my weight loss, and not going to lie I did pretty well with it! I went from 175 lbs ( a BMI of 30 - borderline obese) down to 131.2 lbs ( BMI of 22.5- healthy!) Woo on that.
However right after I got to that weight in September, and so close to getting out of the 130's I met my adorable boyfriend, and many nights spent cuddling on the cuch, and yummy meals out, I gained a little weight back.

OK lets not lie, I gained a lot of weight back. Last Tuesday I faced the music and saw that I was up 11.8 lbs. Blah. So I'm back to losing that weight and a tad more. I'm not 100 % sure what my goal weight will be, I'm aiming for 125 , but might want to go a little smaller, but I'll face that when I get there.

I will post again tomorrow with my first weekly weigh in ! Wish me luck <3
