Monday Weigh in Day

I'm back to it and a day late.  Forgive me.

The weekend was good, I ate, drank and smoked way too much. I gotta knock that shit off.

After eating 2 tubs of Edys in 3 days.. yes friends, I said 2....  along with pizza, Jack in the Box, Taco Bell, potato chips and other craptacular food selections,  I stepped on the scale to reflect yet another 2 lb gain...  

 I AM A ROCKSTAR!   Can ya tell???

Seeing that number made me want to vomit.  Seriously.

So - I kept my eating in check yesterday, hit the gym (without my Polar F6... sniffle sniffle) and managed to burn around 600 calories within an hour.   I'm sure it was more, but I'm going to estimate low until I can replace it.  

My NET ended up around 850 calories for the day.   Yesterday was the first day in 3 weeks that I ate under 2000 calories.

THEN.... I woke up this morning and hit the gym AGAIN!   I could only get 40 minutes of cardio in, but I got it in none the less. 

Sidenote:  There have been a few of my followers that have questioned me regarding my eating and lack of gym-ing...    Lemme just say, I am by no means perfect.  I've been overweight my entire life, and was morbidly obese for 5 years.   I'm going to fall off.  I'm going to slip up.  I'm going to have those days where I say "Fuck It!".  I cannot promise you that I'm going to lose weight each and every week and be perfect at it, nor do I proclaim to be this weight loss guru.   But - I can promise you that I'm going to be honest about  my journey and experiences.  I'm not going to sugar coat this.  I'm going to tell you the good things, the bad things, and the down right horrific things.  This is called "Eating for Real",  REAL being the emphasis here.  Real life, real people... real shit gets in the way sometimes.  If you don't like the honesty, you can stop following me now. 

Thanks for reading friends...  until next time.


  1. Glad you went. I know you love seeing that number but what maters is that you burn the same amount of calories/fat no matter what that silly little thingy says :) So that's what matters.

    And we all have good days and bad days. No apologies needed, there is no way I would have the guts to be as honest and outspoken as you have been xo.

  2. Thanks C!!! I looooove seeing that number, lol. But youre right... Im getting there and doing my thing and thats what matters most. :)

  3. Jaclyn- you look awesome and have made quite an accomplishment! I've share your story with my mom in hopes it will motivate her to loose her weight. I enjoy reading your blog and truly admire you for your focus and commitment. Yes you are going to slack at times but you realize it and get right back at it!!!

  4. Thanks Dawn! Please tell your mom to feel free to reach out to me if she wants. ;)

  5. I had Chipotle, a calzone, and an Oreo McFlurry last night. It happens. At least you went to the gym. I am going to force myself to go tonight after work!

  6. The one statement that my surgeon's office told me prior to having surgery was..." You will mess up, and make mistakes..." I thought that was the wierdest thing that THEY can ever say to me, since they were here to help. Now that i'm post-op, i'm glad they told! We're only human, and you are doing a good job!

  7. I think you do awesome just being you.....I think we all should try relaxing a bit on ourselves and each other...this is your band, your journey, your life and I am just glad you are letting me tag along.....I THINK YOU ARE AWESOME!!!!!!!

  8. Thank you ladies!!! Katie - I looooove calzones!!! Nikia - my surgeons office said the same thing. I feel bad for people who go into this with unrealistic expectations. Bella my dear, I think youre pretty effin awesome yoursel! :)
