the TRUTH shall set you free...right?

Okay, I decided to actually say my actual weight (I know I have the little tracker at the top of my blog, but I think I need to actually say it...or write it).
Last year, in January, I got on my scale, and it read 278.4. I was devastated! I did not know I had let my weight get THAT out of control. So I started Weight Watchers online, and lost 11 pounds in about 2 months...then Spring Break came, and I stopped counting points...for the rest of the year. I guess I wasn't that determined.
So, January rolls around this year, and I step on the scale...288.8

Well, that settled it...I had to do something. I was only 11.2 lbs from 300 lbs.

So yay! I started Weight Watchers online again...and haven't looked back since. I went through Spring Break...I didn't count points all the time, but I watched portions and used hunger signals. I had lost .6 when I got back to school...not great, but better than gaining. So the week of Easter I had lost 20 lbs exactly.

The two weeks after Easter, however, I had gotten out of the habit of going to the gym. I also wasn't counting all the time. I gained about 4 pounds (but I think I was retaining water, too).

I've pretty much gotten back on track. I've lost the 4 lbs + 1, so that's good. But I hate I'm not exercising like I should be. I walk to class, but that's about it. I think all the stress of finals is weighing me down...i take like a 3 hour nap ALMOST everyday after class...that can't be good.

So my actual (not official, since it's not my weigh-in day yet) weight is 266.6. 22.2 lbs gone...I've lost it pretty slow, but that's better than going towards 300. People, without me even asking, say they can tell. So that feels great! I've noticed some extra room in my clothes, not to the point where I need to buy new clothes, but a little.

Usually, I would be so embarrassed to tell my weight to people; but I feel like my current weight is something to be proud of. Can't wait til actual weigh-in day so I can call the folks!

Well, now that I've talked about weight, I would like to move on to something else. I have fallen so back in love with TLC (the greatest girl group of all time, not the TV network...RIP Lisa "Left-Eye" Lopes). I've bought so many of their songs on iTunes. They speak on so many things outside of relationships (which is usual r&b), but I was researching them, and they were a part of the New Jack Swing movement. New Jack Swing combined jazz, r&b, rap, and pop. Genius!

But I particularly love "His Story," "Sumthin Wicked This Way Comes," "Creep," "Waterfalls," "Ain't 2 Proud 2 Beg (lol)," "Case of the Fake People," "What About Your Friends," "Hat 2 the Back," "Baby Baby Baby," "Silly Ho," and pretty much everything else they made. I really can't think of any of their songs I don't like. Even their more current songs (2002) were good. I suggest to anybody reading this to go check out the aforementioned songs on Youtube. And T-boz has a new album coming out some time in the future/near future...Lil Wayne's on the song called Rebel Yell. Chilli was doin somethin'...I remember a song called Dumb Dumb Dumb, but I know if they ever released it. Left-Eye's "Eye Legacy" came out this January. The songs are fine to me, but that may be becaused I'm biased and I support TLC no matter what (some critics gave it a bad review). But I love "Let's Just Do It," "Spread Your Wings," and "Through the Pain" (you should check those out, too).

I don't wanna make it sound like I only like TLC. I loved almost all the music during the 90s except Country and Heavy Metal....I also wasn't a big fan of Gangsta Rap (some of it was okay). But I do love Taylor Swift!

Okay, that's enough for right now. I have to wash my clothes and back later, hopefully, after studying. Gee, no fun this weekend.
