I hit 2,000+ blog visits today–I’m so excited! I intended this to be read once by about two people, so I’m kind of floored to have a few readers from across the country–and one in Australia! 🙂

My pants fell off today! That felt freaking amazing. Fortunately, they stayed up through the work day. Unfortunately, once again, the scale is not reflecting the changes that my clothes are showing.

Another happy note: two different coworkers told me that my weight loss journey has inspired them! One is signing up for Burlesque workouts with her friend–how fun! It makes me so happy to know that I can be a motivation to others. It also makes it a little bit easier to resist the delicious carbs when I know that other people are looking to me for inspiration–so, really, they are the ones inspiring me!

And now for the downer portion of the day: Jon’s contract job, slated to go through the end of March, is actually ending on Monday. No news if another assignment is forthcoming. I’m feeling faintly ill.

I also found out that broccoli causes excruciating gas pains. TMI? Sorry. But I thought I was dying of a heart attack after lunch today. The chest pain was ridiculous. Good lord, if I can’t even eat BROCCOLI, what can I eat?

Here’s hoping the snowstorm expected for tonight misses us and I can make it to the gym by 7:15! I am in desperate need of a tough workout to get my spirits up and my motivation back.

Good night, all! And thank you for reading! You keep me accountable and your comments make me smile.


About Kristen K

My life has always been pretty darn fantastic--except for one thing: my weight. Not too long ago, I tipped the scale at 283 pounds. I'd gain some, lose some and gain some right back, and I was so frustrated. When I saw a notice for a Biggest Loser-style contest in my local paper, I applied on the spot and I felt like I won the lottery when I found out I was one of the five contestants chosen. We worked out four times a week with trainers and followed a clean eating diet, and my life completely transformed. I've lost more than 60 pounds and I'm feeling confidence for the first time in my life. I'm 29 years old with a great husband, a rewarding job, two adorable dogs and fantastic friends. Weight loss continues to be a struggle now that the contest has ended, but this time I know that I can do it and I'm fully committed. This blog has seved as an accountability tool as I journey from a happy, but fat, person to a happy and confident person. And for the first time in my life, I'm no longer putting it off until tomorrow. This time, I'm starting this minute.

    If you can’t eat broccoli your pasta-salad-without-the-pasta is going to look very sad! I say screw the scale and go with how your clothes fit and, more importantly, how you feel – a little hard with the competition aspect of it though, I know. I’m so proud of you! 🙂

    Sorry to hear about Jon’s job; I’m sure he’ll find something else to keep him going. That’s the trouble with doc review jobs, they can pretty much end the project on a moment’s notice.

    The way your clothes fit is a much more reliable indicator of weight loss than the scale, which is a fickle, fickle mistress. Congrats!!
