Another One Bites the Dust

I feel like some times I take one step forward and fall two steps back. Like a couple of weeks ago I lost 5 lbs just to gain it all back the very next week, and the next week I only managed to lose 2.5 lbs. Thats 3 weeks and a net loss of + 2.5 lbs !!!

I don't mean to be a downer, but I just had another one of those moments and I just need to vent a bit. I have really thick thighs. In fact throughout school I used to get teased "Thunder Thighs." I always hated it, because it just drew attention to something I hated. Well fast forward a few years - I still have them dang "Thunder Thighs" and they just broke through yet another pair of pants.

I swear it's like it happens every couple of months or so. If you can see (I put a red patch behind it) the dang hole staring at me like an evil eye - right on my inner thigh. It was my favorite pair of jeans, the one that made me feel comfortable and sexy. Nothing makes me more angry then ruining my own cloths by doing nothing except wearing them.  Argh!

I know some people might wonder why I care so much to lose weight when I don't look particularly over weight. But it's because my weight effects my life, and my self-esteem negatively. And i'm sure that it hasn't helped my terribly painful knees any to be holding an extra 50 or so pounds.

Two days until my next weigh in, it will mark a month for me - I hope I can have lost at least 2.5 more lbs. It would really suck to have an entire month with no loss (and one less pair of pants that fit).


  1. Good luck with your next weigh in! Sucks about your jeans, i've been there too, so I kinda know how it feels. I know it's hard but try your best to use this as motivation.

  2. Argh! The damned thigh rub hole. Yep, I've ruined many-a-pants the very same way.

    Got my fingers crossed for your weigh in!

  3. OMG! I thought I was alone on that! I'm thick in the thighs and for YEARS I've done that with my damn jeans. It's the worst! Ugh......

    Good luck on the weigh-in! You'll do fine. Just stick to it and think about how fabulous life will be when those thighs are toned and slender!

    Go, us!!!

  4. Count me in on this one too /.... My favorite Jeans ruined because of my thighs rubbing.. I can't even wear a dress for very long without spanx underneath because they rub so much!! UGH!!! Sucks!!

    Well Ellie.. hope I can vent right along with you...
    I am loving your posts.. KEEP MOVING FORWARD!!! Let me know how you are doing/
