Two Meatballs: Oh Snow You Didn’t!!!! (aka the 12th Weigh In)

Can y’all believe it’s our 12th weigh in?! We really let ourselves go this month…

So let’s just jump right in the deep end.  Jenny, you’re up bunny!

wpid-20150228_191804.jpgwpid-20150228_191847.jpgwpid-20150228_191833.jpgwpid-20150228_191810.jpgwpid-20150228_191804.jpgwpid-20150228_192005.jpgwpid-20150228_192003.jpgwpid-20150228_191959.jpgwpid-20150228_191928.jpgwpid-20150228_191934.jpgwpid-20150228_191939.jpg

I feeeeeel faaaaaat!!!!  Not really, but I don’t feel proud.  I have a lot of excuses for why I got here but the bottom line is I ate a lot of shit. It was so easy and I loved it for a brief moment, but looking at these pictures right now…I hate it!  My body feels different.  I haven’t seen Sandra in a month.  It’s crazy how I felt so much better about myself 4 weeks ago…that is such a short amount of time.  I’ve been so disconnected from Sara, we have the busiest schedules, we did’t cook at all this month.  I literally didn’t do anything right this month.  Well, actually I that’s not entirely true.  I worked out at least 2 to 3 days a week and completed a 5k this month.  It just goes to show you though when it’s not all working, it just doesn’t work.  Diet is a huge part of my success.  I’m still really happy though, I love this journey. I still feel very committed. And I’m excited to not feel like this ever again.  My family has been amazing.  I love Sara…I hope we can be together more this month.  It’s just a minor setback! Love you guys!

 

Alright Sara…you’re up Kitty!

Ugggggg….I don’t like excuses…but here they are! haha  I know exactly how I got into this situation.  Between pneumonia and being put on steroids, extreme exhaustion, snowmagedon and my super best buddy, Gigi’s death…food became the hug I wanted.  I spent an entire month without having the energy to exercise. Survival mode kicked in and instead of fueling my body with things that would have made me feel physically better I chose things that made my emotions feel better, but they were all conscious decisions that I made.  The guilt, the grief and the exhaustion were crushing and for whatever reason food made me feel temporarily better and became my new/old routine. I gained 11 motherfucking pounds. Last time I was on steroids I gained 20 pounds so I’m thankful that I didn’t go that far!  I don’t feel defeated, juuuuuuuuuust disappointed!  I think I will always find comfort in food, but my hope is that the amount of time I stay in the comfort will continue to become less and less.  I had a very human month.  I do not enjoy losing weight that I have already lost.  Conversely, I don’t enjoy dwelling on the past, and that is precisely what February is now…the past.  I am allowed to rewrite my story at any time.  This is a bump.  I am not striving for perfection, I’m striving for progress. #shakeitoff #literallyyoucouldburnsomecalories This isn’t the story I expected to write but it is exactly what happened.  I’m so looking forward to March and spring. This month, I’m going to the gym and cooking my own food. #backtobasics #hittherestartbutton Thank you all again for the support you give us.  We really need it!!!  Love you all.  Jenny, this is our month!  We deserve to continue on the path to health and I’m so glad I get to do it with you.

Now, how did we get ourselves in this chubby boat?!

First…we both got sick and a little bed ridden!

wpid-20150228_185650.jpgwpid-20150228_185702.jpgwpid-20150228_185706.jpg

Then we literally fed our inner children and comfort binged…

Ohhhhh, the belly aches and the regretttttt!!!!

 

 

wpid-20150228_184618.jpg

And the cold weather called us to snuggle on the couch and be lazy and watch endless hours of tv!

wpid-20150228_190214.jpgwpid-20150228_190207.jpgwpid-20150228_190220.jpgwpid-20150228_190226.jpgwpid-20150228_190226.jpgwpid-20150228_190234.jpg wpid-20150228_190243.jpgwpid-20150228_190258.jpg

All the dramatic facial expressions and laughter in the world couldn’t burn the calories that we consumed!  So what are Two Meatballs going to do to fix this?!

wpid-20150228_194724.jpgwpid-20150228_194731.jpgwpid-20150228_194801.jpg

Let’s get physical! Fancy meeting you here!

We’ve made a pact and we’re going to get serious again!

wpid-20150228_195723.jpgwpid-20150228_195708.jpg

We are going to hit the gym so hard!

Hang in there with us and don’t give up hope!  Tomorrow is a new day and we have found our motivation.  This is the half way mark for both of us and we have no intention of ever turning back.  We will reach our goals and have so much fun while doing it!!!!  I keep jokingly asking Jenny is she wants to start a blog where we get healthy! Hahahahahahah We love y’all!!!! Xoxo

I lost zero and I couldn’t be happier!   Who knew these were hard months?!?!  Oh everyone.   Well maintaining my weight lost thus far is a success!!!! I really hope to lose some weight next month!! I’m still feeling extremely focused.  I’m so aware when I’m not sticking to my diet….my budget falls off and I avoid the scale.  So it was a pleasant surprise I did not gain.  I still worked out, which kept me engaged.  Christmas is defintely my favorite holiday. SO I need to prioritize my celebrations this month . I’m still learning the lesson, I can not do it all!  I can tell myself no…I think!  Integrity feels better then any food cheat. Sleep deprivation has the worst effect on me, so I am really going to try and stay rested on and go to bed more thoughtfully.  My family is amazing and  couldnt do this without them and I defintely couldn’t dO this without My bestie, love you sara!

 

Alright Sara…you’re up kitty!

wpid-img_20141130_153924.jpgwpid-img_20141129_200654.jpgwpid-img_20141129_205012.jpgwpid-img_20141129_200725.jpgwpid-img_20141129_205145.jpgwpid-img_20141129_200941.jpgwpid-img_20141129_205133.jpgwpid-img_20141129_201039.jpgwpid-img_20141129_201115.jpgwpid-img_20141129_200848.jpgwpid-img_20141129_200906.jpg

 

Sooooo, it wasn’t my best month but it certainly wasn’t my worst.  Surviving my birthday and flippin Thanksgiving and still managing to lose 2 pounds really does feel great.  Now if I could only have been as dedicated as I was this last week of November, alllll month, I really would have something to celebrate!  I am feeling super pumped about December.  We have our big company party, The Bobies, in January and  I really want to be down 100 pounds by then!!!  I love a goal…now NO MORE SUSHI for awhile at least.  I have never felt better and I never want this feeling to end. I’m entering my 10th month of being sober and who knew it would feel this great.  No turning back.  I genuinely love all of you and I’ll spend the rest of my days trying to show you how grateful I am to have y’all on this journey with us. Xoxo to the moon.

 

We survived another weigh in…together!!!
