Hello friends
Yes I have been MIA (missing in action) for a few days, pretty much avoiding admitting that I have not done well the past few days. Needless to say I have almost gained back everything that I lost in the past couple weeks since I started this weight loss journey. I was so stressed last week about the job and school thing that I ate horribly and was not working out, and then this past weekend was K's birthday so where we went for lunch and dinner were horribly unhealthy and had no healthy options available. I know sometimes this is what happens, we have family things at restaurants that have no good options, and at first I felt okay with this, but now I am feeling bad about it after weighing in this morning and realizing I have gained almost everything back.

I am feeling bad about myself.

I joined the Ugly Cupcake society and our first challenge was to lose 5 pounds this week and I have gained. I will continue with the challenge however it is a definite that I will not lose 5 or even 2.

It is so hot in here, our landlords have not given us screens so I cannot even open the window. UGH

I have to decide between Queens University and the University of Ottawa by this Saturday. I do not know what to do. I want to go to Queens but it will cost about 5000 more, but I feel it would be worth it if that is where I want to be, but I just do not know what to do.

I hate feeling this way about myself.


  1. I'm sorry you're having a bad few days, but just try to push through and think about how much easier everything will be once you're over this hill. I definitely know how you feel. I'm also doing the Ugly Cupcake challenge and I'm up half a pound from my weigh in. I know how frustrating it can be.

    I understand the life stuff too. I'm having to choose between two Universities right now as well and I feel like if I pick wrong, I could completely screw up my entire life. It's really overwhelming. If you want someone to talk to, don't hesitate to email me. Sometimes it helps to just vent and get it all out. :)


  2. Life decisions can really mess with our weight loss progress if we let them. I am a walking example. tomorrow, I am getting back on the wagon though and I will update everyone with how things are going soon. Being honest with yourself is the first and most important step. You can do this. I hope the decision comes easily to you! :) I am thinking of you!


  3. Stress is what sets me off! I totally eat when i am stressed. Just remember you can start fresh everyday of your life and what you are doing will prolong your life!
