It's a.....GIRL!

I haven't been posting much since finding out that we were expecting, but wanted to share this news. We found out last week that we are having a GIRL! I am super excited. The hubby really wanted a boy, but is happy with either one. Of course my daughter wanted a girl and my son wanted a boy, so either way one of them was going to be disappointed. My daughter wants to name the baby Rapunzel. LOL. We have not decided on a name, because we can't agree on any! We are thinking about Brynlee Faith.…See More

Profile Information

About Me:
I started my weight loss journey at 291 lbs. I lost around 100lbs. about 3.5 years ago. Since then I have been struggling to lose the last 40 lbs. I am currently fluctuating around 180. I joined ww again about 10 weeks ago at 186.8 lbs., my loss so far is 8.6 lbs. My ultimate goal for now is 150 lbs., if I can get on a roll and attain that I will reassess. I just can't seem to discipline myself or stick to it long enough to lose the last little bit. I have changed my lifestyle tremendously over the past 5 years and eat pretty healthy all of the time. I am hoping that starting this blog will keep me accountable.
Plan of Choice:
Low Fat, High Fiber, Weight Watchers
Workout Philosophy:
I'm a walk-a-holic, I only exercise because I have to

A little bit of motivation:

- Believe, plan, act, persevere and you will succeed.

- People don't succeed because they give up what they want the most for what they want right now.

- What do you want out of life and what are you willing to do to get it?

Doing Better

Posted on January 12, 2010 at 3:59pm 1 Comment

I am finally getting back on track and eating healthy for me and for baby. I have nicknamed the baby #3 since we don't know what the sex is or have names picked out yet. I had a pretty good day yesterday, with the exception of the pizza that I had for lunch. The kids didn't have school and we had extra children at the house so I ordered pizza from work to take to them and I indulged a little. I only had one can of caffeine free diet soda yesterday and I did not have a dessert or ice cream after… Continue

Using being pregnant as an excuse to be a pig!

Posted on January 5, 2010 at 5:30pm 2 Comments

I am still not doing so great. I am still using the pregnancy as an excuse to pretty much eat whatever I want and it has got to stop! The holidays weren't too terribly bad, I didn't do much cooking, which helped. I usually make peanut butter fudge and christmas cookies.

I am looking forward to watching Biggest Loser tonight and getting motivated to exercise and eat healthy! I don't want to gain anymore weight! I am getting disgusted with myself and don't want to have a ton of baby… Continue

Pregnant and out of control!!!

Posted on December 9, 2009 at 2:00pm 4 Comments

Since finding out that I am pregnant I have been absolutely out of control. I have been making bad choices and eating too much! I have still been making good choices, but right along with the bad ones. I am only about a month and a half along and I can barely fit into my jeans! The insanity is stopping right here and now. I am nearing 190 and that is a place I don't want to be. I told myself that I would not get above 200 with this pregnancy. I weighed 162 only 6 months ago on my wedding day.… Continue

I think I'm pregnant!

Posted on November 10, 2009 at 12:00pm 5 Comments

Yes, I did say I think. I have taken 2 home tests that were positive, but my period isn't technically due until Thursday. We haven't really been trying but we haven't been preventing either. I have been feeling weird and had a cold for the last week and a half. I got up in the night with one of the kids last week and ended up blacking out and falling down on the tile floor, bruising my tailbone. I knew then that something was going on I just wasn't sure what. I have not made it to my goal… Continue

Hey girlie! Last week I posted a blog about my friendly tips for eating successfully in a Mexican restaurant and you can read all about it here. I hope that it helps you some and that you have SO much fun! Also remember that choices like taco salads (not in the fried bowls and preferably with chicken and not beef) and also tortilla soup (minus the cheese or sour cream) are also pretty healthy choices. Veggie tacos or fajitas can be great too you just have to be careful that they weren't drenched in butter first before they were cooked. That's why I usually opt for chicken first! Good luck! Let me know how it goes!

116!! wow, thats soo great! how did you keep motivated? what kept you going? and yea me and the hubby have talked about it, but its not really right to deprive him when he doesnt have the weight problem.. plus he only eats a few things (he is very picky) and believe it or not, those cookies is like 20% of the things he will actually eat.. lol so its kinda wrong for me to say he cant have them, i just do need to be stronger and yes i will def. take you up on the email buddy thing!! thanx alot =)
