Reduced Fat Life Update

Only two posts in October? I would apologize, but then again who likes reading forced blog posts anyway? So, I should really say “you’re welcome.” What’s new, friends? The first part of this post is gonna be a cop-out, rehashing of notable Facebook and Instagram posts I’ve made since the last time we talked.

Like the first time I was recognized outside of my circle of friends from my Weight Watchers success story. Also the day I found out I was on the app (incorrectly calling me a Meetings Member).

The day I had lunch with amazing runners at Yard House in Downtown LA. Many of them were from out of town to run the Rock ‘n Roll LA Half Marathon. (Photo credit: @pavementrunner)

That time Francelina from Biggest Loser 14 said I’d given her hope.

And when I dressed up as Psylocke on Halloween, then compared it to my last photographed Halloween costume. Then used one of those ridiculous Halloween themed backgrounds.

As you can see, Bow and Sioux most definitely wanted in on the Halloween action as well. Don’t be fooled by the looks of contempt on their faces; they’re just trying to be cool.

As for exercise and activity? Still chugging along. Last Tuesday I did walk/jog intervals for a distance of 5K at a respectable time. Any stamina I’ve built up during my training days is gone; it’s like I’ve got chain smoker lungs again. The next day, my coworkers and I hit up a cardio bootcamp type class where the focus of the day was abs. By now I am cleared for pretty much any exercise, but holy shitface is my core super weak! That was Wednesday. It is now Sunday, and I am still incredibly sore all over. Getting out of bed, sneezing, coughing, getting punched in the gut by the dogs…it’s as if I’m recovering from the tummy tuck again.

And as for nutrition…still half-assedly tracking on both WW eTools and My Fitness Pal. Still having an on again, off again relationship with the 7-8 pounds I’ve gained from my lowest weight. One would think that it’s frustrating, but it’s not, because I know what I’m doing or not doing that’s keeping me from my ultimate goal weight. That unicorn is becoming less and less important to me as time goes on, but it goes in phases. I am currently in the phase where I’m like “FUCK YOU, NUMBER ON THE SCALE! I STILL LOOK GOOD (pretty sure I think)!” Which is an awesome segue into the next subject…

This week I am really excited to be trying out the Quantum Scale that was sent to me to review and give away to one lucky reader. I programmed my “starting weight” this morning, and will test it out the rest of this week, finishing off with a review and giveaway next weekend. Stay tuned for more!

    I’ve always wondered about how liberating those scales that don’t display the actual number are… I’m not sure how I’ll ever feel about them. Curious to see what you think πŸ™‚

    Well, I think the halloween before and after says it all: congrats, you really deserve them! Bow and Sioux are such cuties…hm, better they don’t hear me, ’cause I’m sure they wanted to be tough!

    Always a motivational boost to see people succeed with their weight loss goals. Even if they haven’t succeed yet, making progress is still amazing!

    Losing weight shouldn’t be as hard as many people try to make it. People who are desperate to achieve weight loss are often prone to take more risks. The only reason most people fail in their fitness goals is that they have good intentions at first to adopt a new lifestyle, yet after a few weeks or months, they abandon their good intentions and slip right back into their old bad habits that gave them the excess body fat in the first place.
