Adventures with: Hooray!

I may have mentioned this in passing to a few people, but I haven't advertised it heavily as I have in past adventures. I don't like the pressure. Anywho, I've been kinda dieting. I mean, it's nothing hardcore - Bob forbid I should exercise. *shudders* I've been eating smaller portion sizes and mostly raw fruits and vegetables. And *sigh* no cake. That being said -

I've lost 15 pounds since December!

Yes, I know that is not ideal for a month's work (I'm 5'1" with a small frame under the pudge), but half of that time was spent puking from a concussion. I'm in it to win it now. I lost weight a year and a half ago when I was doing my crazy diet, but most of it came back. That being said, if I lose another 15 pounds, I'll be down to the biggest that I was before I had Eden. If I lose 30 pounds, I'll be high school weight (later teen years, mind you). So I'm going to see this through.

Will losing weight change my life? Not really, I don't hate my body now. However, if I want to lose it, I should do it soon. I'll be 25 (shut up) next month, and I've heard it gets harder to lose weight after passing that future decade marker. I just figure that I may as well do it now.

Also, you're all invited to enjoy my birthday with me next month. Unfortunately, there will be no cake.


  1. can't remember being that your idea of cutting portions down (that's my method)--don't diet too much--it isn't good for mental health...

  2. Haha, I'm not *really* twenty-five (shhh), but I'm holding. I've lost another five pounds since I last posted, but I haven't blogged about it yet. I'm at the miserable stage of dieting, where all I want is cake, mashed potatoes, and creme brulee. You DEFINITELY have a point about it not being good for mental health! :)

  3. Wow! Any advice on loosing weight? I've always lost some and always seem to gain it back. Congrats on the 15 pounds! I also wanted to stop by and say thank you for the words of encouragement on my blog :)

  4. Thank you. :) It's just a matter of portion control and healthier eating. Right now I'm on a reduced calorie diet to get my weight under control, and I'll maintain it through healthy living (hopefully).

    You're very welcome for the words. I hate to hear about someone being bullied for their opinion. It's ever important for a person to be true to his or herself. :)
