Opperation Makerover

So the time has came for me to have a makeover! Now not just a physical one, but a mental one as well! I have been thinking of this for a while and have come to a conclusion that the time has come to get rid of my FAT jeans! Change my hair, my makeup, and more importanly my whole outlook on life! I can now see a change in the way people are looking at me. My grandma said to me the other day. Amanda you sure look nice is that a new outfit? I said no I just havn't been able to wear it in a while. She then said well good for you keep up the weight lose! I went home that night and thought you know what I am going to keep it and keep it off! So that night I went home and went through all my clothes, and if you know me I have tons! I throw away many bags of clothes and had my hubby donate them to the locale needs place here! That night I tried on for the first time a pair of Jeans I have not wore sense college and ...... THEY FIT!!!!!!!!!!!! HOLY RUSTED METAL BATMAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was shocked and amazed!!!!!!!! Now I still had to do the lay on the bed to get them to botton trick! LOL but they fit a first in a year! Now I can see that it is happening a lot more still needs to happened, I know that but this is just the beginning!
Now on to some sad news..... I broke my stride this week and ate some chocolate. It was very good and tasted great! Then guess what, after I ate it I thought Amanda what are you doing you know you will only want more.... and you know what I did want more. I honestly had to tell myself NO SHUT THE DUCK UP NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I asked my hubby to kindly take the chocolate away and place it somewhere only he knows! I made sure I worked out harder that day. But I still felt so bad. I let it get to be so much. Its funny how we do that. I was doing my Dancing with the stars dancing teh pounds off dvd and pushing myself way to much. Just so you know I way my 3 1/2 dance heels when I do this work out. ( Meet my hubby doing ballroom dancing so I know what I am doing) I knew I was pushing myself, but I didn't care because I thought I need to burn that chocolate! Well I fell and hit my knee on the tv stand, and twisted my ankle! All my fault I knew what I was doing I should of knowen better. But I got up and after the tears and talking to my hubby I knew what I did and he stettled me down. The next day I was so much better, so I had a bad day its ok because WE ALL WILL HAVE BAD DAYS, but that does not mean we have to quit, we keep going and the next day we do a little better. These are things I have now learned, I know that without Mamavation I would of never learned these things. Its funny before I would of gave up and ate more and more chocolate, but not now, now I am a figter and will alway be one.
Thank you so much my lovely MAMAVATION MOMS MY SITERS MY FIRENDS!

Being down almost 4 pounds in one week is amazing! I hope you don't diminish that accomplishment - especially since generally folks loss 1-2 pounds a week when dieting.

Also, eating a piece of chocolate is not that big of a deal. I am all about everything in moderation and don't deny myself anything. If I want it, I eat it. I just don't overdue it. And if you want chocolate, Hershey's Dark comes in 100 calorie servings and has the Best Life seal of approval.

Just an fyi for when the craving hits and BE CAREFUL exercising! You don't want to be out of commission completely!

Congrats on the weight loss that is wonderful news. chocolate is a wonderful thing, and dark chocolate is good for you, thats how i look at it sometimes, when you eat in moderation. hope you have a great week.

Amanda, I learned that a piece of chocolate (or bday cake - that's what I had this week) won't kill me! However, the fact that you and I had the will power to just have one and walk away is amazing - isn't it? We can't beat ourselves up over it.

Congrats on the jeans! Yeah you!

Trish said...

Wow I am really proud of you!! 3.6 pounds is awesome!

I find the more I stear clear of processed foods over all the better I do overall...especially with chocolate and I find when I want chocolate if I buy really good quality dark chocolate I not only enjoy it that much more, but the cravings just do not happen.

Colleen said...

what...you think 3.6 pounds isnt a lot...that is awesome! Dont beat yourself up over one day...you need to splurge once ina while...just do what you did and tell yourself it is just that one day!

Jennifer said...

Make-overs are awesome, aren't they! Congrats on the weight lost. Sorry to hear about your fall, be safe girl. I think you so freaked out after eating the chocolate and just had to exercise it off that you seemed to have an off day when you fell...but you did good, don't sweat it. Keep up the great work!

Kim said...

3.6 lbs ain't nothin to sneeze at! That is great! Keep it, you are doing a wonderful job! 1 pc of chocolate is fine! Don't make it a bad thing (unless you plan on never eating it again), just make sure you don't go crazy!! *hugs*

kia said...

Thank you mamavation friend! Your support has also meant a lot to me. Congrats on the college jeans and 3.6 pounds! Boo to pushing yourself so silly and banging into the TV stand. Be gentle with yourself, you are doing awesome. Don't let a little chocolate put you in a sour mood, you got this!

Great job on the weight loss this week! Shows you how important those fruits and veggies are.

I'm having a hard time reading your post because the words blend into the background. I don't have great eyesight to begin with, but I thought you might want to know in case you want to make a change. This old lady thanks you!

Jessica said...

WooHoo! Way to walk away from the chocolate! That is SO hard!! I'm so impressed!

And good job on the weight loss! You are AMAZING!

Brittney said...

Congrats on the jeans! That is a big boost! As far as chocolate goes, I have to find a little place in my diet for everything I love or I won't stick to the diet. Do what you gotta do... in moderation.
