No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
That is right my friends. The end of this year is 12 weeks away. My new journal also covers a 12 week period. Coincidence? I think not! New goal number one... Journal something (anything) every day. I am not going to commit to writing down everything I eat or everything I feel because we all know how that goes. Basically, I will do good for a week or two, miss a few days in a row, and throw away my journal. That isn't helpful. But I know I can commit to writing something each day…Continue

I had planned on getting training for Disney again starting Monday. However, we had a break in all the rain today and seeing we have another rainy day in the forecast tomorrow - I was like why not now.
I talked my #2 son into going with me. When I asked him, he was like "sure, I'll give up my Cheetos".
I refused to start back at the beginning of week 1 --- it's been since the end of June since I've done any training. I took a chance and started at week 3 and it worked out…Continue
I only lost about 1/2 a pound this week. But its still gone. My clothes feel looser. I believe if I am more on top of my water more will follow next week. I ran 10 miles yesterday just because I liked the cooler weather and I could. A good friend came with me. It was spur of the moment. We stopped in like 5 bars to get water. It was such a happy day. I am learning to concentrate on Joy.…Continue
I am pleased to report that the month of September was very good to me. I stuck to a plan, I can hardly believe it myself and I couldn't have done it without my sweet friend as my mentor and accountability partner.
Drum rolll please ....... 12#s gone!!!! And YES, I am finally in the next decade. I am tickled pink. Which is perfect for the month of October being breast cancer awareness month and all. BTW - please schedule a mammogram for yourself this month.
Snacks! I am a snacker. I am trying to make myself believe that salad is a snack. I have been eating cottage cheese with tomatoes and salt as a snack. (its ok). Apples with cheese, chicken sausage with sauerkraut and pickles. I am trying new things and revamping old things. I dont want to be hungry. Its soup season thank goodness so I have lots of hearty stuff in the crockpot to keep me busy. Like butternut squash curry lentil soup. its like 100 calories a bowl!
I had to get real. I had to take a hard look at my eating and exercise habits. I had to admit I am not in a hard training cycle and that I need to work harder to lose weight. I had to admit that even though I run every day I did not qualify as VERY ACTIVE on myfitnesspal. I am more like "lightly active". I had to deal with the fact that when I get upset I eat fried chicken and chocolate. I see that this probably wont change so I have to work out more on those days. I had to admit…Continue
I am thankful that I have been able to maintain close to a 20 pound loss. But that just isn't enough. I have about a hundred more to go. I seem to be stuck in the "Tomorrow Is A New Day" cyclone. We all know that the only way to make progress is to make good choices today and to stop waiting for tomorrow to come.
So here's to today.
I'm so glad that this mind-set is sticking and hopefully for good. This is all getting easier everyday.
This week I really pushed hard to get more plain water in, exercised 6 days, stayed on plan all 7 day with my food choices, did my new weekly stairs to the 10th floor and Guess What?????? it all pays off when I stick to plan:)
Weight Watchers meeting this morning my goal was to lose at least 1.4 lbs to hit a total of 30 pounds gone and I killed that goal and lost 4.8 pounds!!!!!…
Had a light bulb moment today when met with my mentor friend. She encouraged me to move on to phase 2 which I've been avoiding. The reason I'm avoiding is because I don't feel like I've gotten phase 1 down right. She pointed out --- "have you been eating whole foods?" Why Yes, yes I have. "Then that is all you need -- your ready to move on." OK then phase 2 here I come.
On the way home - I thought --- I'm trying for perfection and feel defeated when I'm not perfect. I really…Continue
So I am fluctuating between 270 and 275. Most days I am closer to 275. Although I am not happy about it, I can't say that I am surprised. Other thank kicking my soda habit (which I am SO thankful for) I have not been able to find any motivation to move on to the next bad habit. I have stopped working out and we are continuing to go out to eat basically EVERY single day. It's such a bad habit and it is so expensive BUT we end up ordering takeout or going out to eat almost every…Continue
So at this weeks weigh in at Weight Watchers I was down another 1.4 pounds. for a total of 28.4 lost
So I went home and decided to try on a pair of jeans that were a size smaller and they fit comfortably, not tight at all. So this was a huge motivator for me. I got up this morning at 7 and went for a jog! I still have a lot to lose but since it takes so long to see results it felt really good. so my goal this week is to push to make a total loss of 30!!!
It's getting easier and…Continue
