I have 4 days to lose 1 more pound in order to get my "30 Pound Weight Loss Bear" in my next order.

It's so on.

Of course, I plan on eating out tonight, so I guess that Margarita is off the menu for me.

Oh well! 30 pounds gone feels better than any alcohol anyway.

Happy long weekend everyone!

Hello There

I'm in a "get things done" kind of mood today, so I figured I might as well update here while I'm at it.

I've lost more weight - 28 pounds in total. I've noticed that when my body is in a losing weight phase - I tend to get into this "get everything done I've been putting off" mode, which is great. I'm sure it's because I've got more energy, plus I'm pumped at losing weight and my mind set is completely different.

I wish I felt like this all the time. I wonder if I will when I hit my goal weight. I've always been a procrastinator so I don't think that will go away completely, but hopefully this is something I can maintain while I work on staying at my goal weight.

Back to wishing I felt like this all the time - the funny thing is I think I would be a happier person if I stopped procrastinating. I'm always much happier when I've accomplished what I've set out to do, although I have a tendency to be very hard on myself when I don't get there fast enough. Just recently I've had to fight off worries that I'm never going to get to my goal weight. So what if I don't lose 20 pounds by June 22. I don't think I will be that far off and either way, it won't be the end of the world.

Diet? What Diet?

I realized I forgot to let everyone know that I am now moderating comments. Only because the show is getting bigger hits on Youtube and people are finding their way here to my site and while I will not comment back to the jerks on YouTube who think it's fun to call me fat and ugly, this site is mine and mine alone, so I have no problems with providing a smack down to those who need it.

That being said, a comment I received right after the show was featured on the front page of YouTube freaked me out because I realized that the person found me through our site for the show. And I had to really think long and hard about how I wanted to deal with those types of people, the kind of come here and think they can call me names or say stupid shit to me here. My conclusion was that I would try moderating comments and see how it goes (knowing I'm overreacting a bit, but still, it was an eye opener). So, if you comment and it doesn't show up right away, that's why. Please don't let this sway you from commenting!

In other news, since I last posted about my weight I lost another pound bringing the total to 25. Although when my boss got back from vacation this week, she insisted that I must have lost a bunch more as I look very skinny to her. Not that I'm complaining, but the scale hasn't moved in a couple of weeks. I know it's no big deal, I'm still losing inches like crazy. I'm so in-between sizes right now it's just really funny to me to try and get dressed in the morning. My friend Kendra was teasing me the other day that I am the only girl she knows who is actually upset that she needs to buy more clothes because she's losing weight.

But the fact of the matter is I don't see any point in spending money on clothes I won't be able to wear in a few months. Luckily I was a bit weird about saving clothes as I grew out of them, so I have been very lucky about not having to buy too many things so far. But that will change soon.

In running news, I have definitely turned a corner recently. I've consistently dropped 2 minutes off of my time - well, I run 2 minutes faster than I was. The first time this happened The Boyfriend and I completely missed each other at our usual meeting place. Because I had been walking so slow during our warm-up, The Boyfriend rightly assumed I was running slow that day and went the wrong way to try and find me, which made things worse.

We eventually found each other at the car, but it was very odd for me to finish my run by myself. I've never done that.

Then, the next day, I was running at the same pace, but this time The Boyfriend knew where to look for me so he caught up to me much faster. I figured since I was having such a good run, I would stretch it out and run the actual 5k distance instead of just stopping at 30 minutes like I usually do.

My new time? 35.5 minutes. And I sprinted the last part!

My old time? 43. Yes, that's right, I dropped almost 8 minutes off of my time!!! My body is definitely getting used to running with less weight and I'm enjoying that immensely.

So, someone asked me recently if I was still doing Nutrisystem and my response was a resounding YES!

I can't even begin to tell you how well this has worked for me. I plan on staying on this until I reach my goal weight. It's just too easy, I really don't feel like I'm on a diet most of the time. And with the results I'm seeing, it not would not be very smart of me to stop at this point in the game.

Onward and upward.
