The Yo-Yo Is Back In Motion

I’m talking, of course, about my “I’M TOTALLY GONNA DO IT THIS TIME” weight loss approach.

This time I have accountability to someone I really don’t want to let down, aside from myself. Hell, it’s not like I’ve followed through for myself, so I guess “Accountable To Me” isn’t a good thing for me. This time, I have Juice. And, this time it’ll actually happen. I totally heart Juice. She’s more than my girl, she is my spirit animal.

Okay, so that’s going a bit far, but Juice is a bit more than just a derby sister. I love this girl to death, and her girlfriend they totally rock. For whatever reason, walking the same path: start weight, goal weight, what we’re doing to lose weight – all being the same, and having accountability to Juice, makes me want it more. Well, not want it more, but work harder for it, I guess.

Seriously, our start weights were within a pound of each other, and we’ve been losing almost the same amount of weight at the same time. It’s awesome. Well, was awesome. I cheated and ate a few homemade doughnuts this weekend which gave me the Ideal Protein two day later gain. Pft.

Anyway, what we’re doing is reporting weekly weigh-ins to each other, and any cheating we do. We’re doing Ideal Protein since we both had amazing results with it before. Neither of us phased off of it like we were supposed to, so this time we’re doing it right.

We figure 3 pounds a week is a good average for what we’ll lose and are going for a 7.5 month time-frame, plateaus aside, of course.

Also, I’ve resurrected these:

Pounds Found Pounds Lost Where they live

 

Got the decorative bead jars dusted off and back up and running. A recap for those who don’t remember what they are: one jar has a bead for every pound I’m looking to lose. As I lose weight, I move one bead for every pound lost.

I also think I’m going to start up “Skinny Bitch Bucks (SBBs)” again. Everyday I follow IP, to the letter, I will toss in one SBBs, if I do more than 45 minutes of exercise then I’ll toss in three SBBs. Once I get to $100 (if I don’t work out much, $150 if I workout a lot) I get to spend the equivalent in real cashy moneys guilt free.

You’ll also notice a new tab at the top of the site. I’m starting a new page called “The List”. After I cheated Juice and I talked and what we’re going to do about being tempted to cheat, ‘cuz, it will happen. We’re each going to make a list of stuff we would have cheated for, then, at our WE DID IT dinner, we’ll make our menu off of our respective lists. It will be a bad food dinner to top them all. Stoners will have eaten healthier.

So, there’s those things.

Here’s to the next seven months.

OH! Also, I put in notice. Once Hellian starts kindergarten, I’m done working. A HUGE source of my stress, and stress eating, is caused by my job. I hate being an office bitch. I trained as a chef. I love everything about a kitchen, the heat, fast pace, chaos, the artistry in creating foods…. all of it. Working on an office, is slowly killing my soul. I hate it, I really, really do. The count down starts! Six weeks left. WOO!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. Love the SBBs! Rock it! New reader here!

    • Welcome to my nuthouse! And this is my sane blog! HA! The SSBs are great! Best thing I’ve ever done for a reward system! I had to come up with fake money though, too east to snitch a few real dollas out of the jar prematurely for coffee or pocket money.
