Hey guys!

Stuck with the low carb thing for a couple of weeks and worked off the vacation weight...  

Then didn't keep track for a while, but kept going to the gym...

Then went to a wedding weekend that was all food all the time.

Hit my highest regain weight at 330lbs. Freaked out... again.. Still? That was last week after the wedding/boozefest 2013

Been in touch with my cousin and we're doing emails back and forth. We've got a challenge going where if we both meet our goals this month consistently, we buy each other a fit bit. My goal is a month of going to the gym 4x a week. She's going to the gym 3x a week.

Week one has been a success. I really want a Fit Bit... It's a little pedometer that monitors your sleep cycles, flights of stairs climbed, calories burned and of course, steps.

This week I've done about an hour on the elliptical, an hour on the bikes and about an hour of weight lifting (mostly upper body to balance out the cardio/resistance on lower body). I'm seeing the numbers go down accordingly. I'm down to 327.

I don't trust it though. 3lbs? That's a decent sized poop and that's about it. So I'm going to try and refrain from weighing in all the time and driving myself crazy. And see what the damage is at the end of the month.

I am not restricting my eating in anyway... I'm not tracking calories. I'm just trying to eat more veggies and eat more consistently throughout the day. I'm also drinking a lot more water. Summer is here and the sweating is on. I know I won't last a minute trying to workout while dehydrated. Not to mention the retention and inflammation that happen with dehydration.

And this is me on a boat at the wedding.
I'm pretty insecure about that photo. I feel like a total butterball. When it's bigger you can see all the cellulite and dimples of the pudge. Seeing the positive... I got in a boat. No fear of tipping it over. No size fear of sinking it. I just got in and went. Also, it was a great 2 hours of exercise. 

Big Fat Love, 


  1. A canoe at a wedding? That sounds fun!

    Nanette, I hope you find your groove again, and remember that you can NOT out exercise a bad "diet". What you eat matters, and how much you eat matters... I hope you'll keep tracking and hold yourself accountable. I know how much it sucks... I do, believe me I do. Never give up girl!!

  2. Canoeing is great upper body exercise and it's fun. I think we all are our own worst critics. I remember ignoring the obvious weight gain until some unfortunate photos popped up on social media. Use it as motivation?

    I try to turn negative situations into positive solutions. You can do this!

    Good luck with everything! Ever little bit helps!

  3. Oh do I know those self conscious thoughts. Am I going to tip the boat over? Sink it. I went canoeing two weeks ago and felt guilty because they had to launch me and I just wanted to get out and push it myself knowing how heavy I was. But it can be done and it's fun! I'm glad you did it.

  4. Wow! I can only do about 2 minutes on the eliptical and you do an hour of weight lifting and bike riding, too? That is awesome. I am having serious gym envy right now. I used to weigh myself all the time, too... every day, but then the scale didn't change for over a week and I switched to weekly weigh ins. It's less frustrating that way.

  5. Forget your troubles! In time, you`ll realize how small they really are!
