I'm disappointed in myself. Why aren't I losing weight faster? I started the morning off well with a high fiber cerel and then it all went down hill. Took the kids to pizza, had a salad and split a personal veggie pizza with my Mom also drank water. I even brought in my own spray dressing. So I wasn't doing too badly. Then I ate two cookies, had chinese food (brown rice-no Pepsi) and just gave up with a breve latte and two chocolate donuts. I feel fat & disappointed with myself. It's my own… Continue

Then there is Virginias Dump Cake...with… Continue

So I realized this week something pretty significant for me. I realized that when I am out of routine or away from the office during the week at a meeting, conference, etc., that right now, I have to pack my own food. Last week on Thursday I was at a meeting offsite. I didn't bring any food with me thinking that I would just eat what was there and control myself. Well, that certainly didn't happen. When the choices were limited, I found myself chosing between a buttertart, croissant and danish.… Continue

This is my first blog ever, I have read many and now have decided to do one on my weight loss journey. I will probably make many mistakes but just give me time and I will get the hang of it. Here is a little information about where I am now and what has happened in the past.
Well I pray this is the last time the person in the picture is ever seen. I am tired of being fat! I have been fat most of my adult life. I married when I was 19 and was at a normal weight at 128, after I married… Continue

Again I'm a little weird. I have been so bad food wise these past two days. I wanted to get it all out of my system. Right now I'm eating french fries and a fried chicken sandwich. I am going to my first WW meeting at 7:30 am tomorrow. I am also so encouraged by everyone adding me as a friend. I look forward to the disciple of WW. Talk to you tomorrow to let you know how my first official day goes:)

Yep it is true I have actually lost 20 pounds now. I've finally made it down to 186.5 from 206.8 it has been a struggle to stay on program but I've done it. I also have been upping my exercise and I'm now doing 5 Mile Advanced walk with Leslie Sansone all the way through and I can actually walk back up from the basement when I'm done! When I first started my legs were so sore I had to take it slow now I can easily do the workout and get on with my day with alot more energy. Today I actually… Continue

A yummy juicy cheeseburger and a 45 minute walk on a beautiful day!
I haven't had a burger in AGES! My friend offered to bring me dinner yesterday and she was at a fast food place. When she went through the list, she mentioned burger and I consciously said "YES, that is what I want!" That thing was SOOOOOOOOOOOO good. I should have taken the mayo out but then I figured I should just enjoy it as it was since I don't eat mayo very often either.
I do have to say that I have… Continue

Well I met a few of my friends this morning at a very chic place called berries for brunch before heading out to the movies to watch sex in the city. We had mimosas and had a nice lunch.. its was so much fun.. we were buzzed and gigly all through the movie, which by the way was great.. the food front was not too healthy but we sure had fun... im back on track for dinner tho... I want to work out tomorrow.. this week I went 4 times to the gym... so i feel good about that..

Well, Saturday is almost over and I'm finally getting in here to read and blog.
I started my day out right and went to the gym. I did 30 minutes on the elliptical and also stayed for the 1-hr. Body Pump class. Felt great when I finished...headed home, showered up and got ready to go to a Graduation open house for a co-worker's son. I'm quite proud of myself as I did really well at the buffet table. Smart choices..as far as food goes and limited myself to 2 lite beers! Yay me!… Continue

So tomorrow is June 1st. It's a new month and a new opportunity to do better. I have mentally checked out the last few days, so I need to get myself together. I am not losing and I am not being honest with myself. I have a tendency of starting out great for the first few days of the week and then falling off my Thursday and then resolving to get back on track and Monday and spending the rest of the week bingeing to "get it all out since I failed anyway". It's a vicious cycle that I am… Continue

i haven't run in two days.
i can feel a very tangible shift in my mood and my energy levels throughout the day when i am less active. i need to remember this and let this fact motivate me to be more active!
if it feels so good to move, why is it so difficult??
i need to stop resisting the initial discomfort.

instead of re-capping the day (which was relatively uneventful).. i am just going to focus on pushing my positivity to tomorrow.
the first of june.
a new month, a new leaf.
final projects and work deadlines are piling up.. but instead of letting the workload overwhelm me and prevent productivity..... ..i am going to let it motivate me. constant motion, constant production.
i will look forward to running as a time to clear my mind and focus on the… Continue

This is the final week of the Biggest Loser competition at work. I'm only in the lead by .03%. I am competitive. i want to win.
I say all this to say, I am trying to be very particular this week about what I eat. More so than normal. I strongly believe that I can't tell myself that I CAN'T eat certain things or I'll end up eating 3 cheeseburgers instead of just one or a whole gallon of ice cream instead of my 1/2 cup serving. But when my competitive streak kicks in, I figure I can… Continue

I just wanted to pop in and say hello! I have had a couple of crazy busy weeks and tomorrow we leave on vacation. Unfortunately my exercise has taken a vacation as well but I have been eating okay and am hoping to make it through these 3 weeks with a few less pounds. I hope everyone is doing well and plan to check up on my friends, my groups and the blog community next week when we are back in town!

I am around but my son is sick. Not only does he have an ear infection but a bad case of runny stools. So that is where I have been for the past couple of days. We are going to get him another type of prescription in a couple of minutes.
So hopefully I will be back into the swing of things by Monday.

I have said to myself so many times, "I will start my diet tomorrow". "Tomorrow is the day I change my life". "Tomorrow I am going to do it, this time I am REALLY going to do it!" Then, surprisingly, tomorrow never comes. I always make up excuses. Oh, there is just one Mother's day, or birthday, or kids birthday, or church function, or Fill. In. The. Blank! I am great at making up reasons for myself to not be accountable for eating. I am officaly sick of myself, the excuses, the… Continue

Down 2 lbs!!!!!!!!!!! I can't believe it! Last week at WI I had worked so hard and was disappointed when I weighed in the same. Anticipating a long plateau period, I figured that this week I may also stay the same or be down only slightly. But 2 lbs down is amazing for me! Only 8 more lbs to go and I'm back at my goal weight!
This really show me how much I've improved with my attitude to weight loss. These months when I've been trying to lose the extra weight I've put on, there have… Continue

The new routine wasn't too much more confusing than the old one ... a lot of the moves are similar. Yet I found myself lurching around looking WAY more uncoordinated than I did before. Then again, I'm thinking of how I felt LAST class ... if I think about how uncoordinated and goofy I was the first time I showed up, it's probably about the same level of dorkiness. And Zumba is still a blast, no matter how silly I think I look!
As for the meals, breakfast was PB&J on a Thomas'… Continue

Well - my week has been going fine so far. Staying on track, eating more veggies. But now its Saturday and I'm beginning to panic becasue there isn't any healthy food in the house right now. I just ate a peanutbutter and jelly sandwhich - not proud of that - but I'm still well within my points for the day - with plenty for dinner and lots of flex points too. I need to make a grocery list and plan out the next few days so I don't freak out and pig out.
I have learned a few tricks to… Continue

Well, we're getting ready to head out camping tomorrow afternoon. I don't think I'll have time to post at all tomorrow. I'm expecting my company to get here in about an hour. I'm trying to get some things done around the house, so it looks half presentable when they get here. My whole family is going to the MN Twins game tonight. My dad bought a box for the game, should be a good time as they play the Yankees tonight. I think we're leaving to head to the cities about 3:00 or so. So we can take… Continue
