Where did it go?!!! Weight loss journey week 12!

12 weeks? 12 weeks have come and gone and I’m very proud of my husband and I for sticking with our new way of life thus far. Every year for the past 4 years my new years resolutions were always to lose a whole bunch of weight but never lasted very long with it. I used to joke with my doctor that my drug of choice is food, haha. It’s true, I don’t drink, smoke, do drugs, gamble, so what better to handle stress then to eat. Eating crappy food always felt so good while I was eating it but afterwards I always felt like shit and even more depressed. Now that I don’t eat crappy food that I always turned to in the past,  I have put my time into the gym.

I am a little confused though about working out at the gym a lot because I find myself really angry this past week. Like always mad. I thought working out was supposed to make you feel good and change your mood because of endorphins and all that. I do feel great after a work out but find myself irritated a lot. Hoping that goes away soon or I will have to  ask the doctor to check blood work or something. This past week my husband hasn’t been able to do much at the gym because he not only messed up one of his knees but both of them at the gym so he had to slow down a bit.

My husband took a picture of me for a review post I did and I couldn’t even stand looking at it and certainly did not use it in my post. I’m happy that I have lost a lot of weight so far but what the hell I still cannot tell where it went! I feel like this smaller person and then see a pic of myself and cannot believe how big I really am so a little frustrated again this week and a little down but not letting it stop me.

Even though I have been feeling down this week and my husband messed his knees up we both were able to still move forward with our goals. This week I lost another 2 lbs bringing me to a total loss of 34 lbs. My husband stayed the same again, which I guess isn’t bad. He only has 14 more lbs to lose until he reaches his goal so I’m not too worried there. I have like 99 more to go!!

    Yes and yes! lol I am on a weight loss journey and my biggest struggle is that I weigh myself everyday to keep myself on track, but it is sometimes depressing when I go 2-3 days with an increase. A big drop always comes after, but I can’t help but feel like I am failing.

  • Ann Bacciaglia

    You are doing amazing with your weight loss. It is so frustrating when we can not see it on ourselves. Keep up all the hard work.

  • mary

    Glad that you were still able to move forward with your goals despite what happened to your husband. Keep up the determination.

    That’s amazing to see your result. My husband will be participating in a biggest loser program at his work, I can’t wait for him to get skinny again.

    I went on a month long vacation somewhere tropical and gained 10 lbs. Now I am having a hard time losing what I put on. I am making some progress but it is slow. So, we are on the same boat.

  • Nancy @ whispered inspirations

    Any weight lost is great! Keep up the good work! Sticking to a goal is hard so keep sticking to it! Fist bump!

  • rika

    Congrats on your weight loss progress! I am trying to lose 5-10 lbs, feeling so heavy right now

  • Travel Blogger

    This is inspiring! 34 lbs that is great! I find myself aggressive when I work out a lot too. I don’t know why, but if I am training for a race, I feel like I get irritated more easily. Not sure why.

  • Liz Mays

    I hope that this week you’ll feel more of the positive post-workout feeling people normally get. I’m glad you’re closer to your goal!

  • Angie K

    Congrats on the 2 pounds you lost. Just keep doing it and all the weight will eventually come off.

  • Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle

    You guys are doing fantastic! Just remember, the weight loss journey is filled with plateaus. Your body gets used to what you’ve been doing.

    Keep plugging away and you will reach that goal. Congrats to both of you on your progress so far.
