25 down, and winner #3!

The winner of the Working Out Sucks book is comment number 4... Cai! Please contact me asap at skinnyhollie at gmail dot com, or on www.facebook.com/skinnyhollie!

And for the first two winners... I mailed your books today!

And I am pleased to announce that the scale is moving again! Today I was down to 294! That's officially 25 lbs down since starting this journey (again) on Novemeber 15. Today also marks FIVE WHOLE WEEKS without the sweet stuff or white/wheat flour. I'm finally feeling good about this process again.

Although I have to wonder if it's because I haven't been to the gym since Friday that my weight is dropping again? We'll see... I'm going to try my best to get in that gym again tomorrow.

Long story short... Well, I won't even tell the story, but my personal life took a major bad turn on Saturday night/Sunday. I'm sad, hurt, and disappointed.

But I'm not eating over it. Not at all. 

Because eating over your problems really doesn't make them go away, does it?

I'm learning that right now. Big time.

Again, my reaction has been the opposite of usual. I have not appetite. On Sunday, I logged less than 400 calories all day. Just couldn't eat. But since I know that's not healthy, I did better yesterday.

I also had a NSV today... I was able to walk through Walmart at 5 p.m. after a long, emotionally trying day and find that I didn't want any of the candy in the aisles. I didn't look longingly at it, and my mouth didn't water. I really felt indifferent. It was just candy. It didn't make me happy anymore, or tempt me. It was just colorful little wrappers that decorated the checkout.

I used to love candy. So that's huge for me.

Well, I'm DOG tired... physically and mentally. I've got to get some sleep tonight, so I'm off to bed!


  1. What a huge success! Both on the weight loss and the lack of temptation fronts!

    It is such a huge accomplishment to be battling emotional let downs and to not reach for comfort of the food variety!

  2. Yay! I already sent you an email, soooo excited! :)



  3. Hope everything is ok. Keep your chin up chuck! x

  4. Awesome job on the loss, and the 5 weeks !!!! That's crazy awesome! :)

  5. I'm so ridiculously, incredibly, entirely proud of you! You've inspired me to get my shit together and get back on plan!

  6. Good job! I'm happy for You and I wish to succeed as you did:) Fingers crossed Take care:)

  7. Your story and success is very motivating, I'm glad I found your blog!
    Here is my story

  8. Ugh... don't you hate it when life takes a turn and knocks you on your butt? I hope everything is okay. Whatever it is I'm possitive you will get through it even if it feels like you might not.

  9. Being able to resist candy is a HUGE accomplishment, i really believe that willpower is a muscle that grows stronger the more often you use it.
    Great work!

  10. Check out the link below, when you do, you’ll see why these guys are considereded not just an additional “fat loss” program, but they’re on the cutting edge of exactly what many think about, me consisted of, to be a lifestyle motion that sets an entire new standard of long-lasting (FOREVER) fat loss.

  11. I love this! I started at 320 lbs so I know what you are going through. I'd read "Food Addiction The Body Knows" by Kay Sheppard in the 90's who recommended giving up sugar, flour and wheat. I dropped 85 pounds in 6 months with no effort that way. Of course, gained it all back and more when I fell off the wagon.

    I'm cheering for you! Go! Go! Go!
