Weigh In Week 3 - 6/11

So it's been 3 weeks since we started this challenge and its taken me awhile to get on track but DAMNIT I DID IT! Lol. So I can't say that I have eaten the best this week but I will have you know that my body did not like some of the food I ate and it let me know it real quick. I felt as though my body was saying, " This is not suppose to be in here, ABORT ABORT ABORT!" Everytime I would eat anything that was not 'Healthy' so to speak.
It was a very painful process I must say but I'm glad my stomach is shrinking and won't allow me to eat as much as I use to. I did manage to go work out this week. I went to the gym Tuesday I believe it was, we only stayed for 25 minutes and all I did was walk on the tredmill but I was sweatin like a pig. I made sure to get up into cardio level the first 15 mins and then I went down to fat burning level for the rest of the time. I made sure to switch between 10 incline and 0 incline every 5 minutes which got me sweatin even more. Lol. So I'm sure even one workout helped in my loss this week.

I have some news about my job that I will share at the end of this but I will say I am very very pissed with my boss right now and I am seeking other opportunities. I haven't left yet!

Ok, onto the weigh in!

So my weight this morning which I am VERY shocked at is 209.5. That is down 2.5 from last week. YAY ME!!! I am finally going down in the numbers and I am soooo happy!
So I was shocked at this weight because I was very bad yesterday.
I had McDonald's for lunch- 10 pc nugget with BBQ sauce, Large fry, and a Large sweet tea
I had El Nopal for dinner- rice, chicken, shrimp drenched in queso cheese and a sweet tea.

So as you can see I am very surprised I didn't gain from all that sodium, especially those Mickey D's fries, Oh Dear Lord!
Hopefully that means an even bigger loss this week since I'm going to try and flush all that out this week by drinking only water. That is a HUGE problem for me. I just don't feel satisfied by water, it just leaves me feeling thirstier than I was before. I never feel like my thirst has been quenched and it doesn't taste good at all. I'm a sugar addict and I will gladly admit it. When it comes to sweets I'm googley eyed and salavating the entire time. Lol.

Onto my horrible job, if you can call it that. 
My boss has left me no choice but to seek other employment options because she only scheduled me 4 hours last week and I have 8 hours this week. I realize I'm not a part time associate and I am labeled as "on call" but damn dude! 
People tell me I'm lucky to have a job but they don't see that it's not really even a job. I live in Kennesaw and work in Smyrna/Atlanta for those of you who are from GA and know how far that is, its not worth my gas to drive there to work for 4 hours 1 or 2 days a week. Now, if I was working all week for 4 hours that would be different. I don't even bring home $100 a week. That is sad. There is no way that is considered a job, AT ALL!!!! Therefore, I am seeking other opportunities. At first I felt like I'd betray them somehow if just left because I've only been there a month. I worked really hard to even get in the door there. When I went for my initial interview in beginning of March, I was offered a position and was super excited. Well, I called every other day to find out when I was going to start only to find out that my position wasn't open yet that they were waiting for someone to leave before I could start. Well, 5 weeks went by, as I continued to call them every other day, until I found out anything. They decided to offer me another position until mine opened up so I was happy to finally come in and start orientation. Then nobody could tell me when I started working. So basically, I've gotten the run around from Macy's this whole time and don't really know what to do. I have legal issues and have somehow managed to pay my lawyer all but $450 but working 4-8 hours a week isn't gonna get him paid off any sooner and my court date is coming up soon and all the has to be paid before I go to court. 

On a good note, I do have an interview with a Temp Agency on Monday to see if they can help me find a job. I told them I was willing to take any job as long as it wasn't a warehouse job. I am just not made for that kind of work. Lol. 

Well, I look forward to seeing everyone's weight losses throughout the day and everyone have a great weekend and good luck next week as we close out week 4 of the challenge!
Hope everyone enjoys the music on the blog as they read. LOL.


  1. Nice job on the weigh in and I hope that all goes well on the job front.

  2. New to blogging. Just started my own weight loss blog...need to lose 50 --at least! What is the summer challenge? If you don't mind me asking.

  3. I hope the job thing works out for you; DD will be unemployed soon and looking for something until she finishes grad school and she says she's not supporting BF LOL. They would like to not have a long distance relationship. I did decently for me weight wise- 222 so that means I have lost 5 pounds in 3 weeks. I'm a slow loser and really don't get over a certain weight often so I'll take it! Congrats to you and wow, what a loss for Tammy!!!

  4. Congrats on the weight loss this week. I wasn't so lucky but I'm not going to let it get me down. I hope things work out with the job or you find something better soon. My check-in post is up (
    Have a great weekend!

  5. Congrats on the great loss! I'm just .4 down.

    If you find luck on the job front, and hopefully you will... send me some as well :)
