    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…

    martina is losing it #28 – talking turkey

    Even though Thanksgiving is over, let’s talk turkey, shall we? Last year was my first year on WW and also the first year that my mom decided to cater the meal, or most of it, anyway. We ordered from Boston Market and man do I love me those sides. I was hyper-aware of what I was eating and I’m pretty sure that I tracked the whole meal. This year, we catered, but not from Boston Market. This year our meal came from Fairway, which, sidenote: I fully recommend. Not so much the gravy, but everything else was great. This year was also different because I wound up making myself a…

    martina is losing it # 26

    How is it that it’s been over a month since my last general post and even longer since my last weight loss post? I could say I’ve been busy, which, if you don’t look at what I’m doing Monday- Friday from 9a-5p () and only at the weekends, it’s an accurate statement. But it’s not an excuse. I didn’t have a great July, pounds wise. I didn’t gain many but I didn’t lose many either. The month brought a 3.3 pound loss. As I always say, better off than on, but… yikes. August has been OK, so far. I’m down a grand total of 88.6 pounds. Still so very unbelievably…

    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…

    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 #10

    Ok, this is going to be a quick update because I’m at work & on my phone, with my boss right next to me and I don’t want to go on the computer because he’s the type to ask questions and if I don’t do this now, I probably won’t later… How’s that for a run on sentence? Anyway, last week was a good week with me losing another 2 pounds. That made my total weight loss 42 point something (6 maybe?) pounds. This Thursweigh wasn’t so kind, but I kind of had a feeling it wasn’t going to be. When I did my little step on, look down, step…

    martina is losing it #4

    As I’m writing this, it’s still Thursweigh so it still counts. It’s been three weeks since my last update; my middle name is OnTheBall. I’m going to make this pretty quick (3582 words later…) and painless. The long and short of it is I am officially down 26.5 pounds! lolwut. It’s very surreal and hard to accept. I still feel like I’m going to wake up tomorrow and my pants won’t fit. Something tells me it’s going to take a while to not feel that way. I haven’t gotten (m)any comments on how I look/ looking different, which is disheartening and I think part of the reason I feel like…
