WOW!! It's been almost a year since I've been here.

I just came by via Roni's post today. It's crazy to see how long it's been since I was here last. I have maintained my weight @ 154.5 - 10 lbs over my goal. But, I HAVE MAINTAINED that weight. I do want do drop those 10 once again, but have lost a bit of motivation. I need to get back in the game. I know I can do it. I just need to do it.

Back on the wagon

Well, after this weekend, I decided I really can't do this on my own. I haven't been tracking points although I havae been aware of what and how much I am eating. Anyway, I signed back up for WW online on Monday. The fact that they had a discount prompted me. I weighed 158 that morning and WI yesterday 153.5. I know it was a lot of water weight from the weekend.

I signed back up because I need the accountability. I'm only 9.5 lbs. over my goal weight, and I know if I focus, it will come… Continue

Bleh- WI this am - not so great

Well, it looks like the Easter candy won once again. I weighed in this morning and it was 155.5, so I've gained 3 lbs I think since my last post. Oh, well, I started the day well and had a great plan even before WI. After WI, I went for a 30 min walk - 2 miles. Came home and made my berry oatmeal for breakfast and a hot cup of chai tea (no milk) with stevia. That should hold me until well after lunch. I love the fact… Continue

I year - yesterday

Posted on April 7, 2009 at 10:45am 1 Comment

Well, yesterday was my 1 year anniversary on WW. I hit goal on 11/26 @ 144. Yesterday I weighed 155. I've gained 11 pounds in a little over 4 months. No big surprise, really. I haven't been journaling or paying attention to what I am eating - actually that's not true, I've been paying attention but was in denial and, quite honestly, I was rebelling. Well, now I am paying for it.

I had a great OP day yesterday, although I ate right before bed. The thing is: I know what I need to do, now I… Continue

No run, rough night

Well, although I was determined to get a walk in, my husband ended up working until 1 am. Needless to say, a little too late for a walk. I did, however, take the kids and the dogs for a quick walk/bikeride. We needed to get out.
Hopefully I will get the chance this evening after we get home from my husband's birthday dinner.

Thanks for the hello - hello back to a fellow dakota... I decided to put up this nice long an lean giraffe for some motivation as my photo. I didn't just want to be the outline of a head anymore.

Thanks for the comment :o) ... we LOVE picnics! As for my water's the only thing I drink (besides coffee) and I usually drink about 120 oz. every day. I think I waited too long to eat that day because I was hungry when I was packing up the picnic stuff and I should've had a small snack, but I didn't.

I think that is a great idea. As I was sitting here reading your comment, I absentmindedly was eating honey nut cheerios andgetting ready to go to sleep. I think that a "Just for Tonight" group would be great. What a terrific idea. How do we go about doing it?

Uh-oh :~P ... C25K is "Couch to 5K". It is a program to get you basically from the couch to running a 5K. You can check it out here. There is a C25K group here at BTL and there are links to the podcasts and that takes all of the timing out of it. It plays music and tells you when to walk and when to run in the intervals suggested on the C25K program.

I will begin homeschooling my children this year. I'm nervous and scared, but since my kids have been out of school, I can already tell a big difference in their behavior. Great job on your weight loss thus far! I will be looking forward to reading your blog and sharing your journey!
