Bye-Bye 230s - Hope to never ever see you again

Good Riddance 230s... What a stubborn visitor this was... hope to never ever see you again!

I gave it my all this month... and unfortunately it did not pay off the way I expected :-(

Even though I lost 10 pounds in the month of March I was really hoping to lose a couple of more pounds to reach my Easter Goal of 225! It is highly unlikely that I will drop 4 pounds in the next 48 hours. It's okay, I am still very happy that I lost enough to say good bye to the 230s and if I can continue to lose 10 pounds a month I will be EXTREMELY happy!

I never thought that I would write anything like this... but I am no longer hungry, have no appetite and food just does not taste the way it used to taste. I am having the problem not getting enough calories in. It is not the restriction because I could eat much more if I wanted to...I have never experienced anything like this because I am a food lover and there are varieties of foods I truly love and like to eat...I wouldn't be overweight if I didn't like food, lol!

It really bothers me because I would like to eat in the 1000 calories range... So tomorrow I will have to create a meal plan and force myself to stick to it whether I like it or not.

On a different note, I had a couple of NSV this week...

The most important one, I can (for the first time) see that I have lost weight. Until last week I could only see it in my face but not on my body even though I have dropped sizes in clothing and my husband and other people are pointing it out all the time... but nothing feels better when you can actually see it (and believe it) yourself!

I cannot wear my wedding band any longer because it slips right off... my watch hangs on the underside of my wrist because it got too lose. No idea if I should have it adjusted or wait it out until goal weight.

I am being ID'd for buying wine. Seriously! I am 35 years old, lol!

My closet needs a serious "spring cleaning" Last week we had 80+ degrees and I had to work my way through at least 10 summer tops to finally find one that actually fits.

Other than that I am still extremely busy with work... this weekend I will do some serious spring-cleaning and if time permits plant my veggie and fruit seedlings in my garden.

Will check in with you soon. Bonnie and Band Groupie...Thanks for asking for me and I am truly sorry that I could not respond sooner.


  1. Wow- 10 pounds in a month is great! I know we always want more...
    I'm not sure why but getting in the 220's seemed big to me too - I guess because you start to see the 100's as attainable.

  2. Congrats on the 10lbs in one month! That's amazing!

  3. That's fantastic! I so wish I had your problem with the loss of appetite (I'm sure I'm not the only one. I'm the opposite...I want to eat even when I know I'm not hungry. I often have to tell myself, 'No, you aren't even hungry. Get away from the fridge!'.

    I had a wonderful surprise myself when I got on the scales this morning...I'd just snuck under the 14 stone mark - by 0.2 of a pound. Hey I loved that 0.2lb, it made all the difference. x

  4. Awesome to read this post!

    10 lbs in one month is great and I felt the same way getting into the 220's. It just felt like maybe all of this is really possible.

    Have fun clearin' out the closet!
