Finding Me!

Profile Information

About Me:
Here I am, I'm back. Not sure anyone here even knows I was gone, maybe a few. I have been overweight FOREVER and working on losing and getting healthy for a long time. I am once again counting points and have switched to going to WW meetings instead of just tracking online. I am hopeful and want to share that after a recent visit with his doctor, my husband is also wanting to lose some weight. He had blood work with not so great numbers and has gained about 16 pounds in the last year. While he is only around 186, for him it's still too heavy and he's upset about it. This is by no means good news, but it does give me a partner in this journey that I didn't have before. Somehow that helps me.

Highest known weight: 320
Current weight: 249
Goal: 150

I have been AWOL for a couple of weeks so I thought I would pop in to update all on my progress...


Over the last three weigh ins...


.2 pounds lost 8/1/13

3.6 pounds lost 8/6/13 (weighed in two days early)

4.4 pounds lost 8/15/13


Sooooo over three weeks 8.2 pounds.  It feels great, and I can TASTE that 10% ya know?!  All that talk of tracking and then actually DOING it are paying off!

Just wanted to stop in to say hi and ask how everyone else's weekend is going?  I'm on track and having a good weekend!  Spent the day with my daughter and grand daughter yesterday and today I've been working on some scrapbooking swaps most of the day....gonna make dinner then back to my crafting!

I'm happy to report that I have lost a pound this week at my weigh in at Weight Watchers! I tracked every day and stayed in control instead of letting food have the control!


I'm planning on another successful week!

I went to my weekly meeting tonight for the first time in several weeks and have no change...more to come later

Crappy Week - Nobody to blame but me!

Posted on July 11, 2013 at 12:07am 9 Comments

I did not do well this week! Too much rich food, a bit too much partying and having "fun". It adds up to a gain which is not "fun"! I need to be consistent. Track track track! Every time I reach for anything to eat I must TRACK! Say it with me everyone.... TRACK!

My husband had recent blood work, and a visit with his doctor today for a routine physical.  His blood pressure is up, cholesterol is up, weight is up.  He's not happy about this and so now I have a partner in my journey...


He wants to lose about 20 pounds, so tonight we walked. It was a nice long walk, not leisurely, not awful.  I can handle this having a partner bit. I think it will be good for both of us.  Wish me luck. LOL


Onto the weekend ahead. Sleeping…

Perhaps if I stick around for more than a blog post or two I'll finally be successful and STAY successful?  I am up and down on the scale, that much is consistent.  What I want is to be down down down...I need to get to the gym, and keep tracking my points.  I wonder why I didn't turn to BTL when it got rough?  I need this community, you people who are striving to do the same thing I am striving for...I'm making the effort.  I hope you will continue to support and offer your friendship!

I don't know what it is about weekends, but I never seem to do well, than I scramble all week to play catch up.  I head into the weekend with good intentions, but you know what they say, the road to hell is paved with good intentions!  So, here we are on Monday and I am feeling like I failed...and like I need to allow myself NO room when making food choices because of my weekend!


I'm not even doing any holiday baking!  It's frustrating!  I've gotta do better with leftover…

I have been off track for a bit...not blogging like I know I should.  I'm at 241 right now....last time I posted I was at 239.  That was about a month ago.  Not horrible I suppose but not where I thought I would be at this point.  I am back on track and still working out nearly every day, so there are good parts.  Also, I finally got rid of my jeans that were all but falling off of me and traded them in for size 16!  I have not worn a 16 since high school!  It feels really good and they make…

Weigh in was last night.  Tried to update my blog from home last night but having computer issues!  I have lost another 3.2 pounds and earned my 25lb disc last night at Weight Watchers!  I am .5 pounds away from my 10% keyring!  I can't wait to earn that and I'm hopeful it will be by next week.  That is my plan - 10% by Thanksgiving!  I'm feeling very good about my ability to accomplish this and starting to look forward to my next goal...not sure what it may be yet, but I am confident I can…

Thanks for the comment Michele.  I needed an extra boost and someone to sing the accountability song for me.  You will stay motivated and do great.  I know there are lots of healthy options for the holidays.  Two years ago when I was in a "good" place I did great and picked 3 or 4 days during the holidays where I really let myself enjoy the food but I had to stay in control to earn those days.  Sorta of a game but it really worked for me.  Hope to be on my way to that "good" place again.  Thanks for the encouragement!

Hi Michele!


Thank you so much for your support and kind words, you are right though - I have to do this for myself and that I do realize Tom isn't the one for me but thats a long story. Anyways I just wanted to thank you for taking the time to read my blog and give advice and encouragement and I hope that we can support eachother. I'm new to this site (a few days) and I'm so glad I joined!.


Take care

Over-eating In The Evenings

I really tend to over-eat in the evenings when I do it. Not sure if it's boredom or what it is, but that is always my bad time. Sitting in front of the TV and munching. I've been trying to choose…Continue

Initially we were able to see who was online on our page, but now it is missing. Will that be back? I thought it was a great feature!
