Weigh Day, Fish, and Zumba!

Hello all, it's Monday...yay, NOT! I don't have much time because I just now got the chance to do my post and I get off of work in a just a lil bit so I thought I would just drop in momentarily since it's weigh day and all!

So....I am down to 183lbs. I am kinda perterbed (spelling?) that I have only lost 2 lbs in the last week. I know any loss should be appreciated but damn! Seriously? It's like I will lose 3 or 4 lbs after a fill and then I stall there for a month! I know I have great restriction right now. I am hardly ever hungry so I try and only eat when I am REALLY hungry, like when my stomach starts growling and I can feel the hunger. I have been watching my calories and keeping it under 1200 at least and trying to watch my carb intake and keeping it under 70g a day (I read that that is the max number of carbs you should have a day if you're trying to lose weight). That's not so hard to do because it's just enough to satisfy my carb tooth. hehe But then the nurse told me at my last fill that I should cut out carbs completely to get past my plateaus and that the weight would melt off of me. It's hard to cut out EVERYTHING though. I am just dangling by the 170's and I am stuck as usual AGAIN!

Flounder: Some of you may remember a while back I said that I don't like fish but that I want to get myself used to eating it. Well, I finally tried grilled flounder for the first time at lunch today from a local seafood restaurant and it was.......DELICIOUS!!! I absolutely loved it! I can honestly say I liked it better than most meats I try like pork chops and stuff. I could only eat my 5 tiny bites of it and I saved the rest. Now that I have overcome my fear of fish I would like to try mahi mahi and tilapia, which I plan on doing the next time we go out to eat somewhere. :) YAY FOR ME!

Zumba: I keep seeing infomercials on Zumba and after seeing them and hearing the stories about it from all of you ladies I have decided to order the DVD set today. It looks like loads of fun and I love the claim that it can burn up to 1,000 per hour! What a workout huh? Can't wait to get it in and try it out. Maybe it can help kick my ass into the 170's!

Tata everyone!


  1. Mmmm - try tilapia! That is so yummy! HOpe you like Zumba.

  2. 2 pounds a week is really good! I am at 0 pounds per week lol, I would be happy with .5 at this point. :o)

  3. Zumba rocks just like your 2lbs baby!

  4. Love tilapia and the mahi mahi, they're not very fishy tasting.

    Zumba is so much fun. I'm so glad I went to the class. You will have a blast!


Thanks for the comment! Appreciate it!
