When the scale decides it wants to stop, it gets to be a bit sad. I have been working my butt off, watching what I eat, but then the scale does a stand still. It has even decided it wanted to go up there for a minute. When the numbers start going up, I start getting depressed, I start to ask myself “Why is that number not going anywhere, am I busting my ass for nothing.”

I have been afraid to check my measurements lately, I do not want to get hit with a double whammy, and those numbers not going anywhere either, so I have been putting it off. Well, tonight I finally decided I wanted to see what was going on with my numbers… Scale is reading I am down 12 pounds since the 1st of January, I hope the scale starts moving again soon, or I will not be meeting my goal of 50 pounds by my birthday!

However, I have to stay positive, so I will meet my 50 pound goal even if I have to bust my ass harder. I have upped my calories a bit more to see if there is much of a change. I know in order for me to lose 2 pounds a week I should stay under 1900 calories. I really do not want to get in the 1900 mark… I want to stay 1500 to 1700, before I was 1200 to 1500, and the scale went silent.

So, the first day I took my measurements, was January 3rd, I am happy to say I have lost 14 inches… most the inches are coming from my waist and bust, my damn hips do not want to go NO WHERE… Kinda sucks because this momma has big hips, and they need to move… my hips are the reason my jeans are a bit of a struggle to get on!

I need to stop being so hard on myself, and just remember with time and hard work, I will see a skinny me. It is the time part I have issues with.

So total weight loss 12 pounds, total inches (main hips, bust, waist, thighs, arms) I am down 14 inches… Can I get a WOOT WOOT, I dream to one day wear a dress and look hot!
