Ignorance is Bliss

I went in for my annual exam, mammogram and blood work.  All came back normal except for the blood work.  :(  I found out I have high cholesterol, as well as high LDL and everything in between! Prior to finding that out, I was eating to my hearts content and sweets were my friend!  It was blissfully ignorant of me to think my bad eating habits would not catch up with me!  Now that I know the truth,  I need to make some much needed changes in my lifestyle.  Ignorance was blissful..........but…See More

Profile Information

About Me:
I met my husband 21 yrs ago. We've been happily married 17 years. We have three kids.. a 15 yr old son, a 12 yr old daughter and a 4 yr old son. I have struggled with my weight off and on for years and I've tried many different diets. I have had the most success with Weight Watchers. I joined in april of 2007 and lost 50+ lbs between April and December. I was within 10 lbs from my goal weight and decided to stop going to meetings and loose the rest on my own. I did ok for awhile but slowly started to regain. I'm now up 10+ lbs. so I realized that I really do need the support and accountability of the WW meetings and I rejoined on March 31st, 2009. I'm committed to getting to my goal weight and a healthy BMI this year.
Plan of Choice:
Weight Watchers
Workout Philosophy:
I stay active doing everyday activities, I'm a walk-a-holic, I'm a Running Fanatic, I love lifting weights

I'm not where I used to be." I saw this quote today and it struck a cord with me. It wasnt written in the context of weight loss but I thought it fit perfectly with my weight issues. I'm always beating myself up for not eating this, or eating to much of that or I shoulda coulda woulda kinda stuff, when instead, I should be thinking about how far I've come from when I started at Weight Watchers in April of 2007. I watched Biggest Looser last night and of course I always get teary and emotional… Continue

Scale say WHAT?

Posted on May 7, 2009 at 5:49pm 2 Comments

Well..... despite my binge yesterday, I went to WI today and actually lost 1.4lbs. :) yippee. And it's actually the first day of TOM as well so I wasnt sure what to expect. I've been weighing at home daily to help me overcome my "fear of the scale". It's so much better to just see the damage (or progress) immediately. A few days back the scale was down almost 4 lbs from last weeks WI but with TOM and the binge I just wasnt sure what to expect at WI so was very pleasantly suprised. Of course I… Continue

And She's Off

As in "off to a great start" today, eating well and making good choices and then 'it" happened. "It" being a binge! :( Such a bummer to do so well and then give in to the ever powerful sweet tooth of mine. It totally ruins my whole day. I go to bed with such guilt it's hard to sleep. I had bought some miniature candy bars for my kids lunches and they just called to me this afternoon! :( And then the vicious cycle began......I started and couldn't stop. Way embarrassing. And to top it off, weigh… Continue

I was editing my blog post for today (titled "Monday") when I saw some typos and thought I'd fix them (it's my ocd kickin in, lol) and I accidentally deleted it! :( BOO! I hadnt even had a chance to read my comments yet but saw I had 2. If you left one, thank you and I'm sorry I didnt get a chance to reply back. :) That'll teach me to leave well enough alone right! ;) Take Care.

Welcome, welcome! And congrats on your WW success! What an inspiration! Would love to see some before and after pictures! (I'm such a visual person!...lol) I would like to lose at least 30 lbs...it's coming off slow, and I've had some slip-ups...but I guess that life! Looking forward to getting to know you!

Thanks for the supportive comments! They were very helpful. I will have to try that crystal light, I haven't had it in years and sometimes I just want something sweet. I weighed myself this morning and, to my surprise (lol) I hadn't gained 10 pounds after my "binge" :) Today is another day, another chance to eat healthful foods. :) I appreciate your support :)

Thanks for the comment. As for how the Nike+ sensor works, I don't really know how it calculates the distance it's just a wireless sensor, but somehow must be able to judge the distance in your steps. You input your weight into it and I'm sure it takes that into account along with your pace and mileage to determine the calories burned. As far as the shoe pouch, I went to amazon.com and purchased this item I'm sure there are others that are comparable, but I am very happy with this one so far.

Thank you SO much for your comment. Your encouragement has helped already! I wanted to go upstairs and grab something "not so good"...and have since gone up and grabbed a pear and a Fiber One bar! I really needed a sweet "fix"..you know? Why does it have to be so hard? LOL And fyi...I've been waiting for your to start adding some blog entries...(hint, hint.. lol).

Hey Dona...easy to add photos. From this page...just to up to the last line on your yellow T-shirt where it says "PHOTOS". Choose Add Photos and it opens a window where you can just drag and drop photos from your computer. You can create yourself an album...or just upload them all separate. I can't remember what I did? Give it a shot!
