and i thought trying not to overeat was tough… well, trying to fit alcohol into my calories is actually impossible haha
hitting the gym tomorrow no matter what!
I swear to God I gained like four pounds binge drinking for seven nights straight in Germany. Alcohol is such a bitch because you don’t think of it as calories!
Day Eight: Your workout routine
I go to Zumba 6 days a week, pretty exciting haha. I’m so bad at it though, but it really entertains me! The hour flies by.
Day 7: Do your parents know you’re trying to lose weight? If so, what do they think?
Yes. My parents, my sister, and my best friend know. My parents are cool with it, very supportive. My mom’s thrilled that I’ve been cooking dinner (I’ve been cooking it so I don’t have to watch them eat tasty carbs!) and my dad tells me that I can stick it out, when I relapsed one evening and whined about it to him.
I don’t know how to take their support. I guess its good but I wish they would just tell me more often that I don’t need to lose weight! Whatever, I think they just think its cool that I’ve developed healthy eating habits.
Whoa. I was so tired today. I’m trying to tell myself its because my body’s not used to consuming less, but still! I feel unmotivated to do anything, I didn’t even want to go out to movie because I felt so tired, social interaction just seemed more exhausting.
What gives?? I don’t know why I’m so tired. I think its the lack of carbs. Protein and fiber are just not doing it for me! Hopefully tomorrow will go better.
Anyways, I’m two days in, so hooray for me! 2 down, 15 to go.
Oh and I tried kale today and it was so gross eww.
Day 6: Do you binge? If so, why do you think you do?
I overeat sometimes, but never bingeing. When I overeat its because I get overexcited about the tasty food and I just want to finish the whole plate, or I’m with friends and we’re all just eating a lot. But bingeing? Nope.
So this is my third day… technically my first now, since yesterday I felt really hungry and ate a slice of bread and then it was all downhill from there. My parents were throwing a dinner party, and there was truffle cheese, really good French bread, and RISOTTO! I couldn’t stop myself.
So I’m starting it over hahahah.
Today I woke up at 8:30 to go to Zumba, and I have eaten very well all day!
Breakfast: 2 eggs and 1.5 cups of strawberries= 273 calories
Lunch: 6 oz. baked salmon, one whole cucumber= 277 calories
Dinner: mixed greens with red wine vinaigrette, 6 oz. grilled chicken breast = 293 calories
Snacks: Yogurt and 1 cup of strawberries= 173 calories
Total: 1,015 calories
Minus 425 calories from Zumba, so technically I ate 590 calories! Woohoo!
Day Five- Why do you really want to lose this weight? Are you doing it for you?
I don’t really know why I want to lose this weight.
I guess I want to be seen as a sexy hot person! That seems really weird to write down.
And beng healthy is just an added bonus, really. I just want to be seen as really attractive. Somedays I feel great about my body, somedays I feel awful. I feel like I’m getting conflicting opinions though. All the guys I have been with have loved my body. It always surprised me.
Okay. I do not see myself as particularly attractive, body wise. I want to be at the weight that I find attractive. I think thats the reason.
Day 4: Your Greatest Fears About Weight Loss
- Saggy boobs! But apparently young skin bounces back easily, but still, I worry
- Stretch marks?
- Gaining it back
Hey y’all! My ask box is open, please feel free to ask me anything!
In other news I am starting the 17 day diet. I like the idea of this! You don’t have to work out as much :) Going to go to Zumba too for my workout, apparently it burns like 514 calories in an hour, how cool is that?
And my god I am so happy today. I went to the doctor and he thought I had HPV because my throat looked weird! So I was like, “Fuck!” But he called today and it was just strep throat. I think I’ll hold off on giving head without condoms now. God that would be so bad. Any other people have scares like this? Let me know!
Day Three: a picture of your thinspiration. What features do you like about this person?
I feel a bit funny about thinspiration. It’s another person’s body, which means I will probably never be able to achieve it, you know?
But I’ll go for Brigitte Bardot, who is a style icon of mine.
I think she is so sexy. My god!
But mostly I guess I want to be skinny enough to wear these shorts and not look like a fatass: http://www.shopnastygal.com/products/new/clothing/bottoms/Slasher-Flick-Cutoff-Short-%252d-Pink.html
Haha damn this is what I always think!!! I really like having a good rack.
Day 2: What is your height and do you like it?
I’m 5’7”. I like my height! I’ve never had any problems with it. This is a boring question.
Haha I totally messed up today on my diet! I ate a slice of pizza for dinner (completely ignoring the healthy chicken breast in my fridge) and then I suggested my friend and I go out for fries! I just really love food!
I just have to really think out my meals so I can eat the best tastiest food possible for my nutritional needs. I love food so much! I love going out to restaurants with my friends and family. I mean, that’s what we do for fun. Jesus! We go out to eat, or I have people over and make them food. Like milkshakes.
I have been trying to avoid making milkshakes for people but my milkshakes cannot be forgotten apparently. I had a couple friends over and they were asking me to make my milkshakes. And the milkshakes taste so good so I had to have a cup!
Oh. Here’s a solution: don’t buy milkshake ingredients!
For those who want to treat themselves, this is how I make my milkshakes: I put in like a pint of Haagen Daz vanilla bean ice cream. Then I add a ton of dark chocolate Hershey’s syrup. Then I add a few heaping scoops of unsweetened cocoa powder. And, bam, you have a damn good super chocolatey milkshake! This serves four people though, by the way!
Another weight loss tumblr! However, this is not a pro-eating-disorder blog. Mostly because eating disorders are way too depressing and self mutilating. I don’t know a single person who has an eating disorder and is happy! Or healthy, for that matter. I don’t have goals to be underweight, or goals to see my bones.
I’m seventeen, a girl, and 5’7”, and right now I weigh 144 pounds. I don’t know why I want to lose weight… well, to put it better, I don’t know any one reason. I’ll probably articulate it better in another post.
Anyways my goal weight is 120 pounds. Okay, I know this puts me at the brink of being underweight. Maybe I’ll reach 125 and decide it looks good. But right now I’m aiming for 120.
Right now my plan is using www.loseit.com, to count calories. I have also been exercising twice daily by biking vigorously on my exercise bike! I have been eating healthily, avoiding empty calories or starchy foods. An example of what I’ve been eating:
Here’s to being healthy and looking cute!
