    martina is losing it #29

    it’s been a while since i gave the internet an update on my weight loss journey. the fact of the matter is that not much has changed since my last update. it’s ok. there was thanksgiving and christmas eve and christmas and new years eve. i’m not beating myself up over it. i’ve been battling the same 5ish pounds since september. i can’t say that i’m thrilled about that. i was watching a fellow weight watcher’s story on instagram and she said something about having 2 gains in a row and she was worried about this weeks weigh in and she said, “i would be discouraged, but not enough to…

    It is currently Sunday night. I’m fighting the Sunday Sadness by watching the new Four Weddings and a Funeral on Hulu because Mindy Kaling is behind it and I can only re-watch The Mindy Project so many times. Luckily, I haven’t exceeded that limit so I’ll probably turn it on later. God, I miss that show. Anyway, we’re here for an update, right? Let’s begin. First, I should mention that I changed my weigh in day to Monday. I’ll explain why in a minute. That being said, by the time this goes up my grand total may be different, but in the long run, who cares because my updates are…

    Here I am again and this time I’m prepared. I checked my last post to see where I left off. I usually just guess and hope I’m not repeating myself, which would be nothing new. When we last spoke, I had briefly hit the 80-pound mark. Last Thursweigh brought a 1.5-pound loss so we’re back in the 80-pound range and we’re .1 pounds down from my lowest weight. Also, I had a kind of off the rails dinner on Saturday and, even though they say to track and move on, when I have melted butter all over my garlic mashed potatoes for the first time in over a year, I…

    martina is losing it #22

    I’m writing this on Easter Sunday, about 3ish weeks since my last update. I’d say that’s nothing short of a miracle. April has not been the best month, it’s been pretty shitty, frankly. I had two very little losses and one big 1.3 lbs – which is big for me) gain. A loss is a loss, as I find myself repeating and hopefully next Thursweigh will be better. Still in all, I’m down a total of 76.3 pounds, which is only .3 off of my lowest weight. So, still not too shabby. I’ve talked about my theory on why men lose weight faster and, in my opinion, more consistently than…

    ….aaand we’re back. Hello? Is this thing on? It’s been so long I’ve almost forgotten how to do any of this. But we’re here and we are thriving. I know that when blogs that aren’t weight loss blogs (or that are, whatever) don’t give an update in a while, it usually means the writer/loser had fallen off the wagon or is too busy being on billboards in Times Square. I have not done either, but I should be on a billboard. Because, friends, -sit down for this unless you’re ready, which I don’t think you are-  I am down a total of 76.7 pounds. SEVENTY-SIX POINT SEVEN POUNDS I hit…

    I checked and the last time I posted an(ything) update was February 8th. How do the weeks go so fast? The concept of time is fascinating when you think about it. So I try not to think about it. February wasn’t a terrible month. It could have been muuuuch better but, as we all know, it could have been muuuuch worse. All told, I lost 2.4 for the whole month. A loss is a loss. A loss is a loss. A LOSS IS A LOSS. It’s better than the .7 I was down in January, right? The first two weeks of the month I came in hot. I lost 2…

    martina is losing it #20

    I know, it’s been forever since I last updated everyone. Unless you saw my latest instagram post. If you did, then just act surprised. Three weigh-ins ago, I lost 4.1 pounds, which at the time put me at 70 pounds down. Like, 70 on the nose. I know, crazy. I was guardedly optimistic. I’m still in awe of it all and it still doesn’t seem real. It’s almost a year so I don’t know what’s going on. Anyway, I wanted to wait a week and see which way the scale went. At the next weigh-in, the scale betrayed me and skyrocketed up 4.4 pounds. Rude. RUUUUUUUUDEEEEE. I was really upset.…

    martina is losing it #16

    Part of the issue of me not getting a routine post up is that, as I said in my last post, I fall into a YouTube hole, or I’m catching up on my other stories and since I only have one screen, I could only focus on one thing at a time. My stories usually win out and my adoring fans lose. Sorry, every one (of you). The point of this is to say that thanks to an early Black Friday sale, I treated* myself to a Firestick from Amazon. “Big deal, Martina. Welcome to 2018” – you, probably. It means I can totally dedicate my screentime to writing and…

    martina is losing it #15

    As with the past few of these posts, you’d be amazed at how many times I’ve tried to start a post and then fell into a Youtube hole and wind up closing the tab without writing a word. I’ve been hacking up a lung for two days now and seeing as it’s the weekend, what a better time to lock myself in my bed to write and convalesce. Cutting to the chase, I know I’ve missed two weeks of updates. November started off strong with a 3.2 pound loss. I felt that one. My body felt different in the days leading up to Thursweigh. The second weigh-in of the month…

    martina is losing it #14

    I’m going to be real with you guys. Part of my absence was because time just got away from me and all of a sudden it’s like 3 weeks and I haven’t put up an update. The other part was that October was not the greatest month on this journey for me. In total, I’ve lost 5.2 pounds for the month. That’s with a very (, very) small gain, one nice loss, and then two other weeks of lackluster losses. I mean, as much as I’m complaining and kind of wallowing, it’s 5.2 pounds that are not on me anymore. This brings my overall total to 52.5 pounds lost. That’s (supposedly)…
