I have a tumblr. Check it out.

I don't follow many people, but I find it to be rather inspiring. I am a very visual person and a lot of the pictures they post are helpful and get me going.

Any of you have a weight loss tumblr? I'll follow!

Tomorrow starts a new adventure

Annie lies. Tomorrow isn't a day away. Tomorrow never comes. Yes, that is a bit of a pessimistic thing to say, but really, it never does come. It's always "tomorrow I will do this! tomorrow I will give you this! Tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow."

I've been promised too many tomorrows and I no longer believe in tomorrow. Tomorrow will ALWAYS be a day away.

So, I will not be starting on this mythical "tomorrow", I will be starting on Monday, July 11th. There, it's a date that WILL come to pass. A concrete thing that I can see coming and will show up.

Tomorrow will always be there, as a tomorrow, as a day that will never show up because it's always tomorrow.

Monday, July 11th, I will be starting a new diet. I actually kind of like this diet. It's something I've been wanting to do (and because of allergies, kind of need to do (I'm allergic to like, everything: milk, corn and all corn bi-products, and soy and all soy bi-products, and corn and soy are in just about everything)). It's called the Skinny Girl Diet. It lasts 30 days and basically you can eat as many fruits and vegetables a day as you want without counting the calories and you get a certain (and small) amount of calories for things like drinks and other foods.

This works for me 'cause I HATE counting calories. It's so annoying. And I've been wanting to try a more vegetarian diet (I think meat taste like crap unless seasoned right or covered in some kind of sauce). I know there's more to a vegetarian diet than fruits and vegetables, but you gotta start somewhere, right? And I don't have the self control to be told I can have at all these vegetarian foods and not over eat. Fat by vegetarian food! That would probably be a first, lol.

So, wish me luck!

I look forward to this endeavor.

Week 3 Stats

So, I've been sick all week and haven't been able to hit the gym (upper respiratory infection makes it hard as hell to breath on top of asthma :( ). I also went out to a friends house and I suppose she eats out like, every night for dinner, so this past weekend wasn't too great on the food front. Also was at a birthday party with Cuban food (it's good, but I think it's mostly fried in oil). BUT! I only put on a pound, so it ain't all that bad.

weight: 289
hips: 54
waist: 45
bust: 52
thigh: 27
minutes: 180

I love being sick, lol.

I forgot to post my stats from last week

Last weeks:
Weight 294
Hips 54.5"
Waist 46"
Bust 54.5"
Thigh 27"
Minutes Exercised 240

This weeks:

Bust 53.5"
Thigh 27"

I could have done more exercise this week, but I was sick >.< Like could't-breath-sick, so I wasn't about to go to the gym and die.

Don't know what else to report, so later!

Sick :/

Sorry for the lack of postage. Been sick all week with an upper respiratory infection. Went to the gym twice this week, Monday and Tuesday, but couldn't breath too well after that. But I haven't been eating too much either and have lost 5 pounds so far! Yey!

Hoping to get back to exercising soon.

Let's Get It On

Today starts the awesome June/July Challenge held by Amanda over at Diary of a Mad Fat Woman.

Here are my stats for the beginning:

Weight: 295 (oh the shame)
Bust: 54.5
Hips: 57.5
Waist: 48
Thighs: 29

Yeah, I seem to be stuck around 295. But I will kick ass with this! I will get back down to 289 and using my little trackers up there! I will do it! And better yet, I CAN do it!

Oh yeah.

Let's do this.

It's called awesome sauce

Starting June 5th and lasting through July 31st, I'm going to be participating in this awesome weight loss challenge. Read up on it, and if you're interested, join! There's still time!

In other news, I haven't lost much. More like, lose a pound, gain a pound, lose a pound, gain a pound. It sucks. I'm sure stress is a big part of it. Life is doing one of those hot/cold things. I get told I'm uncompassionate, stupid, and a bad friend by some old bat but I win an iPod touch in a contest.

Yeah. Ain't it great?

But I am so excited about the iPod touch! Yey!

I am still looking for something to do as far as a diet. I have an exercise plan set, but no actual diet. At least for the month of June. In July I'm hoping to do the protein drink for breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snack then a nice dinner. For June I may take the advice from Sara over at pound removal and for breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snack do small "meals" between 200-250 cals and low in carb then have a balanced dinner with carbs.

In other news, I found this interesting diet while in the diet aisle at my local CVS, it's called the Hollywood Cookie Diet. It's the same thing as the protein shake diet, but having this special cookie instead of a protein shake. It was 12 cookies for $20. If it weren't for the fact that it runs $40 a week (of money I don't have u.u) for this diet, it sounds like it would be fun. "Hey, guess what? I eat cookies all day and lose weight!" lol

Hm... I think that's all I've got to say for now. Until next time, kids!

-Super Jassi!

Thursday, May 12, 2011


I finally went down three pounds. Hell, I finally went down. I ended up going UP from 289 to the 295 area and stayed there for like, a week. I've finally fallen to 292! I'll be updating my trackers up there once I get back down to 289 and below.

Maybe this means the losing will start again, finally.

I've had plans to work out three hours a day, but I've been sick the past few days (stuffy nose, sinus pressure, sore throat, ugh) and only really getting in 30-60 minutes if lucky.

Basically, my work out plan is this:

An hour at the gym in the morning
An hour practicing my sticks in the afternoon
An hour with Dance Central at night

I also plan to do what Sara over at  pound removal is doing for her diet. She's drinking a protein shake for breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snack then having a nice and balanced dinner. She's lost 12 pounds in two weeks doing this. I'm gunna be trying this once I can afford the drinks!

Hmm... that's all I can think to say for now.

Woohoo (Anyone out there still?)

Is anyone still reading? *blinks*

Anyhow, I found an awesome game for the Xbox kinect.

First, I'll give a little bit of background.

When I first started this blog, I went through a bunch of other weight loss blogs and on one of them, the woman had a little tab for something called Zumba. So I looked into it. Sadly the only class my gym offers is on Sundays, and I can't do Sundays. So I thought I would get the Zumba game for the Xbox.

I will tell you now that if you have not taken at least 5 Zumba classes, DO NOT BUY THIS GAME. It doesn't teach you the moves very well at all. So I took it back to GameStop the next day (today) and exchanged it for a game called Dance Central.

When I couldn't learn the moves on the Zumba game, I went to the GameStop site and looked at the reviews for it, see if maybe I had the wrong setting on it or something. Other people said the same thing I just told you, and one chick even suggested the Dance Central game. I went and checked out the reviews and everyone said they loved it, that it taught you the steps and everything.

This game is AWESOME. AWESOME I tell you!

I had so much fun playing it! It will now become my nightly regime. Yey!

As far as my weight goes... Let's not talk about that. It's a bad thing.

I have a new goal

And it's a goal I rather like.

I'll show you a picture of my goal (isn't that just awesome that I can show you a picture of my goal?)

Yes. A roller coaster.

Last year, for my brother's birthday, we (me, my best friend, and both of my brothers) went to Six Flags Magic Mountain. I was probably about the weight I am now. I got on all the rides we wanted to go one... except one. And it was so embarrassing. 

This is what the seats look like:

You see that orange belt handing down? It buckles in to the shoulder harness thing to help keep it down and you in. I tried and tried to get that thing to buckle on my own with no luck. There was only like half an inch to go, and I couldn't do it. An attendant came over to help. He couldn't do it, so he called someone else to help. So here I am trying to suck it in and pull my boobs as flat as possible, the guy is pushing the harness thing down and the chick is trying to get the buckle in.

After about an hour of waiting in line, I had to get off the ride and let my bff and brothers go by themselves. 

All because I was too fat.

I would hate to think what it would have been like had I been at my original weight of 310. So much worse.

I love theme parks. I love roller coasters. I love theme park rides. Hell, I love carnival rides (my uncle was a carnie and took me to carnivals all the time growing up).

So, my new goal: Lose 50 pounds by the middle of July. That'll bring me down to 240 and I will (hopefully) be able to fit into that damn ride. I will conquer it! Maybe I'll even have a picture taken of me fitting into the seat. That would be awesome.

Watch out, Riddler! This Super Jassi is coming to kick your ass!

Sorry for not posting in a little bit.

I've just been a bit frustrated.

Past few days I've been going out with friends, which constitutes eating out. I've been good and have actually been eating less while at the restaurants, stopping when I'm full. I've been a good girl.

But I've been weighing myself just about daily and I haven't lost anything. At all.

I haven't been to the gym this week. I don't want to strain my mom's knees and have them get all swollen again. So this may be part of it.

All I keep thinking, though, is that when I was dieting last year, all I did was eat less (not even really calorie counting just eating less) and sitting on my ass and I lost two pounds a week. Now I'm actually paying attention to how much I'm eating a day and I'm drinking water (not as much as I should be but more than I was) and I'm not losing anything.


Maybe it's stress. My college is driving me insane in more than the normal way. They're cutting classes, got rid of my major, are combining my second choice major with another major and I don't know what to do.

But come on! Can't I have a break somewhere?

Le sigh.

Stupid gut.

Anyone got any kind of tips. Anything at all?

Beyond Willpower Contest

Beyond Willpower is holding a contest for the cookbook pictured above. I recently started following her after another blog I follow posted about the contest. You should go check her out :)

Here's a link to the actual contest post, so go check it out! Contest ends April 22

Weekly Weigh In 04/16

Meh, this week could have been better. I've settled on counting calories. My caloric intake is 2030 a day. The week started out great on the exercising, then things got hard because of different things so the last few days I haven't been at the gym.

So, stats:

Starting: 290 (yeah, my weight went back up :/)
Current: 289

Sadly, I had actually gone down to 286 mid week, but we ordered pizza one night and wham... guh. Stupid pizza. 

Next week will be better!

Sunday, April 10, 2011

Then The Morning Comes

So, I've been stalling these past two weeks or so, as I'm sure y'all have noticed.

But! Tomorrow is a new day and I WILL be starting. No ifs, ands or buts about it. I will be doing calorie counting (blech) using my lovely notebook I made just for dieting.

I will be going to the gym every morning with my mom and we'll be working in the weight machine room. After Momma goes back to the doctor and finds out her knees are all right, we're going to be doing an indoor cycling class from 5 to 7 days a week in the evening while doing the weight room in the morning. And once the baseball season is over (in June if I recall correctly) we're going to add Zumba every Sunday to our schedule. Is that a lot of stuff to be doing? No, not really. Could be more. Could always be more.

But anyhow! It all starts with just the weight room for about 45 minutes to an hour. That's 3 sets of 12 on each machine and theres about... 12 machines. Oh I am going to be sore the next day. But it will be for a good reason!

I need to lose 10 pounds by the end of the month cause I'm going to a theme park. Fingers crossed!


Wednesday, April 6, 2011


So... I think I'm going to have to start things over. This week, so far, has sucked. My self control is like "what? what is this self control you speak of?" It's just not there. So... here I go to count calories. I made myself a diet journal today that I absolutely love. It's so pretty! And yes, I made it from scratch. I like doing things like that. I actually made notebooks for all my friends for Christmas one year, from the look of the covers to the design on the pages. It was awesome.

But anyways, here's my diet journal:
This is the front cover. At the beginning of my journey, I am far, far away 
from my goal, but I'm still working for it!
This is the first page. The castle and the swirly bits are from the paper used on the
front and back covers. The words are Jack Sh*t's post from today, because I
feel it fits how I feel with the diet today and it's actually rather inspiring.
This is the back page. On one side I'm going to put my before picture, and the 
other side will be after, obviously. I'm waiting for the before picture
to be printed and sent to me.
And this is the back. I'm working towards my Happily Ever After!

There's no pictures of the pages because all I did was take graph paper and fold it in half. There's about 200 pages in there. Yes, I'm weird, I like writing on graph paper.

Naw, I didn't make the front and back, they were scrap booking paper that I cut down, stuck on board and made into the front and back covers. I'm not that artistically inclined.

Anyways, I need to work on my self control and maybe this will help. It'll be so much fun! I think I might actually write in this in black, to keep it look classy, rather than my normal purple ink. I'm going to need a lot of support (yey three readers!) even if it's just 'good for you!' lol

I haven't been able to go to the gym cause my mom's knees have been in pain, and she's my gym buddy. And this past Monday, I woke up just before five in pain, so my mom let me sleep in. But we should be going to the gym tomorrow.  My mom got some knee braces for her knees and they seem to be helping.

I know I was going to talk about something else, but I completely forget...

Oh, I'm looking for different kinds of diets from calorie counting all the way to the Paleo diet. Anything at all. Also, anyone got any ideas for how to have better self control, other than just... doing it? Things like chewing bubble gum, etc.

Flow Temple

It's so much fun!

If you don't know what Flow Temple is, check it out here.

My best friend does the contact sticks class, and knows a little poi, so she taught me some today. My god I love it. I'm going to sign up for the next classes. It's a great work out, too. And if I learn poi well enough, I can do awesome things with glow sticks on strings!


Ok, that's about all I have to say.

Good luck out there!

Saturday, April 2, 2011


I've often heard that a good way to lose weight, to get yourself motivated, is to imagine what you want. Maybe even get pictures of thin women to remind you of what you want to look like.

That doesn't work for me. Looking at a thin woman, or knowing that I want to be 150 lbs (which is a healthy weight for my 5'8") and imagining how I will look at that size... I just shrug and be like "yeah, ok, so? She's skinny, I'm not, big deal."

I think I know why.

I don't imagine myself as fat. In my head, I'm smaller than I actually am. Yes, this gets destroyed when I see myself in a mirror or, more likely, a window outside.

Like an anti-anorexic view of myself.

It also makes actually seeing myself harder than it probably should be.

I think I'm going to get some pictures of fat women to remind myself of what I don't want to look like. Maybe that'll get my engine running.

Wish me luck...

Weekly Weigh In

So, this week was kind of a hassle of finding what worked for me and what didn't. So I didn't have that great of a week, but every loss is a loss, right?

Starting: 290
Current: 289.5

My scale works in .5 increments. So I only lost half a pound, but that's a-ok, considering midway through the week I was up at 293 0.0

Hopefully next week will be better!

Friday, April 1, 2011

Well that was quick...

So... I quit the Master Cleanser. Cause it sucks. Going cold turkey from food just doesn't work well from me, so I'm going back to what I was originally doing: eating less, exercising more.

I think that's the best thing for me, really. I'm not good at counting calories, cause I feel that just too obsessive (if you do it, go you! it's just not for me), and obviously going cold turkey doesn't work either. So some kind of balance.

Wish me luck!

TMC Day One begins...

So far so good. I've had two glasses of lemonade (out of at least six for the day) and while it taste better than the last time I did it, I want something to chew on. I go to the kitchen and stare at the food and want to eat it. I've decided to go for ice and bubble gum. I just bought three packs of Orbit to hopefully help with my desire to chew.

This really isn't so hard. It's all about self control (which often times, I forget I have any). But I can do it. I did it for 7 days before when I had grade A maple syrup (which is gross. the lower the grade it is (ie B or C), the sweeter it is), but I have grade B this time (I wanted grade C but the stores around here only had A or B) and it tastes a little better this time, so I can totally do it. (That was a run on sentence, wasn't it?)

I will lose this ugly roll of a gut no matter what I have to do!

I'm working on rewards for every so many pounds lost, but it's kind of hard to think of things. Having no job means no money means no rewards that cost money. Le sigh. Anyone got any ideas for money-less rewards?

I'll update later when I've had more lemonade.

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

Starting tomorrow!

Not the diet, that started Monday (which is going... all right I suppose), but starting tomorrow morning I will be doing the Master Cleanser. It's also called the Lemonade Diet. I'd explain it, but I'm too lazy to explain everything that goes into it. You can google it :P

What I plan on doing is going for ten days then seeing how I'm going and go for another ten days and then repeat the process for as long as I can stand it. Which probably won't be very long, but it'll do it as long as I can!

Yey for not eating actual food, lol.

Wish me luck.

Day 1: Could have been worse

Haha, the song that just started playing on my itunes is almost ironic. It's called Enjoy It! off of a Disney music compilation. Let's see if I can't find it on youtube...

Nope. Too many people use the word 'enjoy' lol

Anyhow, as far as first days go, it could have been worse. I did all right on the eating less (actually I did pretty good considering) for most of the day. Then came the evening and I kind of... melted. I didn't binge or anything, just ate when I really shouldn't have.

I also wasn't able to get to the gym. Too much to do today. But I will get on it tomorrow! Hopefully!

Here's looking towards tomorrow!

Sunday, March 27, 2011

Tomorrow is a brand new day!

Tomorrow is the day I start my diet. I'm starting out just eating less and exercising on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. After probably Thursday, I'm going to be doing the Master Cleanse. I've done it before and lost 8 pounds in 7 days. I then decided to eat because I was at a tavern with my friends and the three cheese grilled cheese on Texas toast with tomato soup. It was so good! I tried again for another day, but failed.

I've tried Slim Fast, I've tried calorie counting. None of it worked. Eating less and exercising has worked best. I lost 30 lbs last year.

Now I am getting back on the ball! I am going to try the Master Cleanse again (I actually have the book for it this time, rather than just information from the internet) and hopefully I'll do good on it this time!

Here's to a skinnier and better me!

Sunday, March 20, 2011

Excuse the dust!

This is going to be my weight loss blog. Hopefully I'll be able to stick to it better with people actually able to see what I'm doing. I'm horrible at diets when I have to hold myself accountable.

I'm still working on making this look and feel how I want. I'm trying to come up with a name I like for this blog that I really like. Anyone who may be looking at this have an idea?
