nikki in the FLESH! {part II}

Good evening my lovies!! So, I am bringing you another nikki in the flesh picture, well 1 because I think it’s amazing how far I’ve come in such little time (59 days to be exact) & 2 it is inspiring!! Ok, I will keep this short and sweet because I have a baby pup to watch.

215 to 189

Excuse the dirty mirror!!

Ok, my lovies have a great night!!

Out of the 190’s :D *Happy Dance*

Ok, so…. today I am 189.8, but I am NOT gunna say it officially until I am like 185 🙂 You know how weight fluctuates…. but I don’t care I am SUPER happy 🙂

Today my boss told me I looked so great, and she is a HUGE health nut! So it’s a really good influence for me. Having self-control is getting easier by the day. Like for example, someone brought BLUEBERRY MUFFINS for bfast here at work, and those are my absolute FAV!! But I didn’t get one. Then they had margaritas here at work and I controlled that craving :). I actually fit into these shorts that I have, and have had them in the closet 2 years!!! I am wearing them at work today. Don’t worry they aren’t short shorts lol. They are khakis and almost to the knee.

Well here is a pic of me, it’s not the best but you can see my shorts a little HAHA, ok better get to work.

Oh yeah.. and happy 10/11/12 🙂

It gets better, I promise!

What is it like to cut out your favorite food for a month? Very hard!! If any one says it’s easy then they have willpower of steel. To anyone going on a diet, trying to get healthy, watching how much they consume, etc… it does get better! I know how hard it is to look in the mirror everyday and HATE the person you see, the person you let yourself become. Many women blame it on their kids, others have no excuse. Men blame it on their wives cooking, others are just lazy or lost their metabolism. Well the FIRST step is to STOP PLAYING THE BLAME GAME!! The reason you gained weight is because of YOU!! I learned this just recently. Many of you may already be aware and know it’s your fault. But those in denial, please wake up and smell the coffee. There is a whole other world waiting for you!! Whether if you have 200 or 30 pounds to lose… you can do this!!!

I am telling you from all of my almost 10 years of struggling with weight… I went from skinny to fat in 5 years! But the 5 years before that when I WAS in shape… I thought I was FAT? So dumb. But that was the scary realization then, was I on the verge of anorexia? No, because I ate like a pig and loved it. I gained my weight when I got an office job, and turned from an active individual to a sedentary one. Yes, exercise IS an important part of staying fit. Well, if I could go back 5 years ago, I would tell myself to get up and go for a walk during my lunch break! Or go to the gym or park after work…. nope. I was a full-time student then too, so eating right and exercising was the LAST thing on my mind.

Well, now I am older.. ahem… almost 30… and I realize that if I want to have a successful pregnancy where if I am healthy the baby will be too! Overweight pregnancy is very dangerous, not just for the baby, but for you! Like diabetes, heart attack, baby is too big… they are possibilities, but are proven facts. So, now that I’m out of the 200’s… and almost out of the 190’s by 2 lbs 😀 YEP! I feel like a new person….

I was so down on myself before. Calling myself a loser, a fat ass that has to accept being this way now, an ugly bitch. Yes, I am mean to myself. But it’s tough love 🙂 I’m ok, and I am more inspirational and motivated to help others!!! I want to help people though this process. Even though I am not to my goal yet, I know I will be by my deadline! So, feel free to send me a message or comment. I love to hear feedback, and advice. As I love to give it as well.

My husband and co-workers are noticing my weight-loss and that makes me soooooo flippin’ happy!!! I feel proud of myself and like I am accomplishing a great task! Losing weight is not as easy as gaining, but it really can be when you do develop that willpower to keep on going. I am writing this to encourage anyone in my position. I now there are MANY out there, and my blog may only reach a few, but it’s a few more than none 🙂

Take the time out to appreciate yourself today.

Just pondering…

Good morning my pretties! I have been feeling down lately, not as much energy. I don’t know if I am feeling the lack of sugar or what? I am staying hydrated and eating well. Today I am going to the park after work and taking a light stroll to clear my thoughts and burn off some stress.

Well my sis-in-laws baby shower is coming up on the 21st, so I have a NEW goal! I keep talking about that dress I want to fit into, so I am hoping to zip it up easier by then. This is going to take a lot of discipline, even MORE than I have been doing, on my part. I have the food, I have the energy, I just need the will power.

I need someone to challenge me! I want to start a contest of some sort. Maybe like how many miles under x amount of time? It’s good to make motivational tools, mine is my weight chart hanging in my bathroom…. which is getting full by the way 🙂 So, that really helps me to stay focused on my task at hand.

I’m not losing weight JUST to fit into old clothes, I am doing this for my wellbeing, and to feel good about myself. I want to go out on the town with my husband again, put clothes on without cussing myself out for being fat. I want to love myself again. It’s so hard to do that when I hate myself for getting fat! Even though I have lost 24lbs total so far, I still have a long way to go.

I’m just sitting here pondering the future and what will happen to me…. will I stay focused or will I crack and cheat and give into temptations??? I want to say NO!!!!!!! I need a 2nd me, so I can slap myself if I try to do anything stupid to mess this up… lol. I have given 3 weeks of my all so far, and I have 5 weeks to go until phase 2. I can start adding a little diary and more seasonings 🙂 Like soy sauce…. I need to go buy more groceries so I can start cooking. Y’all I have been getting sooooo lazy about that. I just wish I had more encouragement.

I thought that starting a blog would help but no one ever comments, so I wonder if this is even worth it? Ok, bye.

Well it’s the end of another week!

I survived another week on the Sona diet 🙂 It’s really surprisingly easy. I have only felt hungry a few times, but i can eat free veggies to fill up. I am so proud of myself for not cheating or giving in to temptation. That was my biggest downfall on the majority of diets I’ve tried. Part of it is the price I am paying. I don’t want to be doing this for nothing. Not to mention hubby will be pretty upset if we are making payments for this for nothing. I didn’t go to my meeting or shot this week because of gas and traffic 😦 But I had an idea, I will now go Tuesday’s at lunch so I have time! If there were a closer place to me it’d be easier. But it’s all good, I’m still getting the same effect.

It’s really amazing to me how much better you feel about yourself when you realize that all it was the whole time was yourself holding you back! If you really want it NOTHING should stand in your way, not even you.

Well I have gotten back into church because I want to feel whole again. So, we signed up to become members and I am in the choir now 🙂 It feels good to give back. I hope to do their website too. Free of charge of course. So, I will present that to the Father. Another thing I am doing is attending Saturday adult classes to make my communion and confirmation. I know I am bad. I should have done this a long time ago for my hubby instead of being selfish and making him get married where I wanted to. So, I have a meeting on the 9th to talk to the Father about a convalidation ceremony.

Hopefully we will get to, I don’t see why not? He has all of his sacraments done, and was an alter boy for many years growing up. So, I want to make this right for him. Well have a great day everyone 🙂

I’m out of the 200’s!!!!!!!!!!

So I just had to weigh myself today. I know I’m not supposed to until Monday, but I have my meeting today with Andrea and I wanted to see how I was doing…. I am so excited!!!! I had the worst headache last night. Idk why but hopefully it goes away. It feels a lot better though now. Well to see my weight go look at my weigh-in page 🙂

I know, I know….

So I know I told y’all I’d post Monday but I am a very busy lady ok? I just wanted to update you with my progress on the Sona Medi-Slim program. Ok, so I think I love it 🙂 If I told y’all how much I lost you would just die. But go check out my weigh-ins page for that. Anyway I got my vita shot today and they make me feel better, I mean not like by a lot just a little. If I don’t eat breakfast I feel tired all day too… so I must make it a point to wake up earlier. It’s very strange because I have been getting plenty of sleep the past week and for some reason I am still so tired.

Anyway here are some pics to enjoy of our Dallas trip 😛

I haven’t been working out but I have been walking some. I am going back to the gym tomorrow for sure. Friday I have a meeting with my consultant, so I am pretty excited. Well have a great week!

I haven’t forgotten y’all!

It’s been a while I know! My parents are out of town this whole week and I’ve been stopping by there to take care of the pets and plants. I have been doing wonderful 🙂 my husband loved his birthday gift to Dallas to tour the stadium, it was a great tour! If you ever go request Marcus he was an awesome tour guide. So I haven’t been walking either. But I’m getting on the ball on Monday for sure. My diet has been good except for that Tuesday road trip lol… Yeah I cheated. But Wednesday I was back on target. I go in next Friday to meet with my consultant so she can do my weigh in and see how I am. I’ve been feeling tired but I think it’s because I haven’t been walking in a while. Tonight is my husbands bday dinner with some of his family. We are going to Olive Garden. He is spoiled. But it’s because I spoil him 🙂

I’m still going to be doing my Monday weigh ins and I missed this Monday but I will post on Monday what my results have been. Until then y’all have a great weekend!!

Sona Medi-Slim

So hello 🙂 I went to my consultation at Sona today. I signed up for the Medi-Slim program!!!! I’m soooo excited to get started. I have blood work to do Monday. If you want info about it, it’s fully explained at http://www.sonamedspa.com and click Medi-Slim tab. To see really great results google Abby Memphis, TN radio station Medi-Slim. She lost 45lbs in 4 months and she’s keeping it off!! She’s training for a marathon right now!! I emailed her and she gave me great tips 🙂

My husband is excited for me too! This is a 6 month program. I go in every week for vitamin shots and weight ins!

Well TTY on Monday.
