199.5 lbs

It is 5:40 a.m., on Monday. I've not gone to bed yet. I have alot on my mind. I had an argument with my mother about 2 fridays ago. Once again, we argued over her lack of cleaning. This time she said that if I didn't like her apt, that I could find some other place to live in. That's fine with me and hopefully, I will be moving out by September. I've decided to remain here in New York. It offers my son more therapies and better medical coverage. I mentioned to him that we might be returning to Pa. and he said, "NO, wanna stay here in Grandma's house". Well, we will be staying in N.Y, but not at grandma's place. Most likely, I will rent a room, until I can find an affordable housing. Went to an interview, to see if my son can get a case manager. This will be someone that will be an advocate for the both of us. I have to wait for 4 wks. to see if we get approved. Don't see any reason why we wouldn't. I've never posted my weight in my blog, but now I will. As of 30 mins. ago, I weigh 199.5 lbs. I know that I am still a fatty, but I've comme a long way. I started at 245.5 lbs., and have lost 46 lbs. My mother came into my room yesterday evening to chat. She looks at me and asks me how much weight have I lost. I told her, 45 lbs. And then she says, but how much do you weigh? I said, exactly 200 lbs. She tells me that I need to stop losing weight, because my face is looking thin. Ha! What good is it if my face is thin, but the rest of me is still fat??? I think that she is just jealous and wants to sabotage my weight loss. If anything, that makes me want to keep losing more. I started the ABC Diet, but got off of it for the weekend. On Friday, I went to hang out at my best friend's apt, but I took my homemade juice and water bottle and a safe snack. Last time that I went to her place, I gained 3 lbs. in one evening. This time, there was no weight gain. Yay, for me. Today, I will be back on the ABC Diet. Gotta, go, time to get my son ready for school. Will be back on later, to post juicy details about a guy that I once knew and have reconnected with on Facebook!


  1. omg congratulations!!!!! i remember when i hit the 200 mark and i was sooooo happy and relieved that i finally was getting somewhere.
    stay strong, you can do this :)
    dont let your mom bring you down like that. focus on how good losing weight makes you feel, and how much healthier it is to be even average-sized than it is to be fat.

  2. I think some distance would be best for you and your mother. Good job on your weight loss !

  3. It's nice to get an update - I was wondering where you went! Good job on the weight, keep it up! :)

  4. WOW! That's incredible that you've lost so much weight! : D Really, you should be so proud of yourself, especially if you have negative people around you trying to sabotage you.
    Good luck and stay strong <3

  5. Congratulations on your weight loss! It's a total accomplishment to come as far as you have. You should be so proud! What is the ABC diet?
