Week Twenty Nine

Previous Weight: 206
New Weight: 204
Weight Loss this Week: 2 pounds
Total Weight Loss: 21 pounds

I think 2 pounds a week is pretty good. Obviously I'd like to see more than that, but I suppose this way it's more likely to stay off. I've been eating well. I haven't been watching my portions at all, and I've been eating into the night, so I could definitely improve in both of those areas, but I've been eating good foods. I've also been exercising, but not nearly like I should be.

Tomorrow I move on to Phase 2 of the South Beach Diet, and I'm going to work hard at "slowly" adding things back into my diet. My usual problem is that I binge on all the things I haven't been eating. My next goal is to get to the weight that I was at when I took my head shots. 4 pounds to go!

Not as good of a week, but I did work out three times and at least I didn't gain anything. It all started with Junior's Cheesecake!

Week Twenty Three

New Weight: 210
Weight Loss over the past 12 weeks: -5 pounds
Total Weight Loss: 15 pounds

I just recently put up a post on our family blog titled, "An Overdue Update." Well, if that one was overdue, then this one is really past due! Sorry. It's been a crazy time with graduation, finishing up my MFA, and especially this transition into the industry. Unfortunately, with the stress, I started turning to comfort food, and comfort snacks, and comfort cookies between snacks, and comfort rice crispy treats from Dylan's Candy Bar (which is located right around the corner from my agents office!).

I really got to a point where I was being pretty reckless. I felt horrible and my self esteem was probably hurt the most. Especially as I've been visiting Casting Directors, Agents, and other industry professionals and not feeling comfortable in my own skin let alone my own clothes.

So for the past 12 weeks, during my absence, I've been all over the place weight-wise. I've had good days where I would try to get back, but then fall off again. I think I even got up to 220 again at one point! Anyway, I've recommitted to eating right, exercising, and getting enough sleep! My most immediate goal is to get back to looking like my headshots when I was at 200 pounds. So here we go!

Week Eleven

Previous Weight: 203
New Weight: 205
Weight Loss this Week: -2 pounds
Total Weight Loss: 20 pounds

Okay, so after my "I'm done with head shots" celebration, we took a trip to Hershey, Pennsylvania. I ate a lot of chocolate, and I don't feel the slightest bit guilty!!! We had a great time, and now it's time to get back to work! Tomorrow it's back to school, back to phase 1 for a bit, and back to working out regularly!

My immediate goal is to undo the damage I've done in the past two weeks and get back down to 200 pounds.
