I had a bad day for my self esteem yesterday. First I saw a few pictures of me from 1998, when I weighed a mere 220 lb, and then I had to check my weight, only to discover that I had gained three pounds last week. :-(

It's not that I'm doing too bad with my diet, I have lost 18 pounds so far. By I'm far from good. I started at 330 lb and currently sit at 312 lb or so. I need to get back on track pronto, so I will re-commit to my diet as of right now.

I will tell you how it went next Monday.
Tuve un mal día para mi autoestima ayer. Primero ví unas fotos mías de 1998, cuando pasaba apenas 220 libras, y luego me pesé, sólo para descubrir que había engordado tres libras la semana pasada. :-(

No es que me haya ido muy mal con mi dieta, he perdido 18 libras hasta ahora. Pero estoy lejos de estar bien. Empecé en 330 libras y actualmente peso 312 o algo así. Necesito recuperar mi salud pronto, así que me estoy re-comprometiendo a seguir mi dieta a partir de este momento.

El lunes que viene les cuento cómo me fue.


  1. Don't be so down on yourself. Sometimes, during weight loss, you gain a couple of pounds back. It happens. Remember, you have lost 18 pounds!
    Whoo Hoo! That's awesome. Keep up the good work. I KNOW how difficult weight loss is. You rock. :)

  2. Oh, I'm not. Or at least, I try not to. But I'm really worried. I'm only 40, and I have four kids. I'm overweight, and I have high blood pressure. Right now, I am not the sole bread winner, but Gaby still has to stay at home because our kids are still very young. She's doing great, though.

    But this is the life we chose, and I have to make sure it's the best we can have. I don't want to worry about my health anymore, and I certainly don't want Gaby to worry either (yes, her name is Gabriela, what are the chances). I'll be fine.

    Hey, thanks for your comments again, I haven't had time to read your 'anniversary' post yet, I will right away.

  3. Both my Hubby and I need to lose weight. He is healthy as a horse, otherwise, but he does have high blood pressure.
    Try not stress out over the weight thing, though. I once lost 60 pounds, just by walking and having a better outlook. I swear, it's true. After my 1st husband and I divorced, I lost about 60 pounds, and it was just because I was happier and less stressed.
    You're doing great!
    Gabriela and Gabriel. That's cute! :)

  4. RE:
    Gabriela and Gabriel. That's cute! :)

    Yup. Sometimes, when signing cards, I write "Gabriel/a".

    You save a lot of ink! :-)
