So I weighed myself the other morning and i was so stoked because the think said 216.6. I was like WOW thats great! OMG I lost weight. SOoooo excited which is what motivates me. I was feeling good. Then when I woke up today I weighed and it said 218....UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was de pressed to say the least. But I cant get side tracked from that dumb scale. I need to focus!

I was up .6 this week. I'm totally ok with it. I know it is completely due to TOM. I'm just happy it wasn't a higher gain. I fully expect to have a decent loss next week.
I took my measurements for the first time in 8 weeks. I got a really nice surprise. I'm down 6.5 inches in 8 weeks. And this was during TOM. I lost 2.25 inches in my waist, 1.5 in the chest and 1.5 in my hips. That really made my day. I was completely shocked at my waist. I now measure 37.5 inches. Completely away… Continue

Ha! I didn't post yesterday. I didn't exercise yesterday. And I ate like crap. There. It's been said. It's been done. And now I'm picking up the pieces. But you know what?? I'm not upset or mad at myself. Sometimes life happens. We went out of town, stayed at a hotel, for a birthday party. Of course I couldn't control what I was fed. I did control portions, although I'm addicted to icing. Crazy icing. But you know what? I'm a coke addict, too, and I had 1/2 a coke and poured the rest out! Yay… Continue

Let me rephrase that! I WILL do it this time! No more trying. I've practiced long enough. It's time to get real.
I've started and restarted so many times, it's shameful. I want to rejoin WW, but, am so ashamed of my failures that I considered joining at another location. BUT! I'm only kidding myself that way. Nobody cares at my WW meetings if I have to start over. The important thing is that I do. I will go right over to my meeting location after work Tuesday, rejoin and attend a… Continue

I have had alot on my mind and it's time to get it out! I find myself constantly testing myself with how much I can get away with eating and seeing the scale and how it effects it. Crazy I know. I have to stop this, and SUCK IT UP. I am going to dedicate the time and effort for myself to get this weight off. I have never really had to "lose" before so I don't know what it's like. Before I was always between 150-170 and once I started gaining, I have just kept on gaining and now at over 200 lbs.… Continue

I disappeared for a while, got off the gym track, and now I've decided to restart my weight loss journey.
I have lost 16 pounds since January so even though I wasn't at my best, I did try to do stay healthy.
My goal - my ulitmate goal - is to be strong and feel comfortable in my body.
I want to be proud of my curves, I want to feel comfortable when I walk into a room. I no longer want to be the wall flower - taking up space on the sidelines.
I want to be up… Continue

My Uncle and his girlfriend called us yesterday because they were camping at Shinnecock and wanted us to come down and hang out. We ended up spending the night there and all day today as well. It was SO awesome. They have a camper with a kitchen, full bath, bedroom and living room/dinette. Chris and I ended up staying up all night outside with the fire pit, watching the sky and talking. We saw 8 shooting stars and got to see the sunrise over the Atlantic. Really it was a fabulous day. We were… Continue

So we started in the rain this morning for the Zooma half-marathon in Annapolis. I planned on sunny and 60 degrees. BUT, we ended under blue skies and it was a good experience for me. My dad went with me this weekend. I have run several half marathons and my dad has never been to a race. We drove about 4 hours together, had a great dinner and he drove me to the start. I got out of the car as the race was starting : ) It was quite a pain to get to the start this morning! Anyway, the first 3… Continue

It has really been forever and a day! I'm not mad at myself for losing track with this, I mean life got hectic. Am I so excited to be back...absolutely!!!
I took a three week hiatus from WW, I didn't go to a meeting. I had finals week, senior week, graduation, home for memorial day weekend...I was conscious but not diligent with eating. It showed...I went back last week and was up 2.4lbs...but hey I'm not upset, i'm ready to move forward.
What was nice was everyone in the… Continue

Today has been awesome, I redeemed my day yesterday by having salad veggies, f.f. dressing and a little bit of cottage cheese for dinner. I have been using alot of cilantro and green onions on my salads lately and it is so yummy! I especially like it with black beans and corn, makes such a delicious salad!
I have had some revelations about my eating habits lately that have helped me realize why I tend to gain weight. When I am on WW, I am successful by loading up on vegetables and eating… Continue

This was a really good week both eating and workouts. I stayed within my points and tracked everyday except Friday and Saturday. I just got busy on those days and didn't track. I think that I probably went over my points both days, but I had only used 3 weekly points up until Friday, so if I just cross out the rest of the weekly points I should be on plan. I weigh in on Mondays and start my new week on tuesdays.
I have had an incredible week of workouts. On Monday I ran a mile and… Continue

Nike+ informs me that I just hit a 250 km milestone
! This is my mileage since my first Nike+ workout on April 7, 2009. Not bad!
It's been a combination of running and walking. I wish Nike+ would allow me to somehow separate the two into different categories so I could m ore accurately track my running pace, but I guess we can't have everything!
It's a gorgeous day out today. Hope everyone is having a great weekend!…

I've been working out with increasing intensity for about 6 weeks now. It's fabulous. I can't say I LOVE to work out, but I definitely am making it a priority, and I LOVE the way I feel once I'm done. I'm proud of myself, I feel strong, I feel healthy. Making it a priority is huge. I've come to the conclusion that I AM WORTH IT! I need to be healthy. I want to be healthy. I want to feel confident, comfortable, and positive. I know this will help so many other areas of my life- my parenting, my… Continue

Hill and I took the kids to the park before the party and tried to pepper a little with the volleyball, but my neigbhors girl hijacked out plan and ended up chasing balls around. No fun. I quit after a few minutes. So there went my workout plan. I then went to the birthday party ate very well, kept away from the chicken Katsu (my favorite!!!!) and at the bbq chicken. I also had a very small peice of cake and ice cream. My sister inlaw makes healthy deserts so I felt it was okay to eat it. I… Continue

I suppose every time I plateau and get discouraged it's a great time to stop and evaluate things. Get the inner motivation I need.. so, that being said as I am thankful for my past weight lolse, I will put it behind and start anew!
What needs to happen:
I need to:
1. Continue to evaluate my daily food choices and stay within reasonable limits for weight lose
A. Calorie Intake between 1200-1600 and I'd like to try and vary my calories, but I hate math!
B. Record… Continue

Since it's 1:00 AM, it's technically into day four at this point.
I've tracked my food (with calories) for three days now. I've stayed between 1750 and 1800 calories. I even exercised all three days. I'm semi-dreading tomorrow as I have to exercise tomorrow. What I've been telling myself, is that I HAVE to exercise every other day. So I've managed to get myself going with the idea that I don't have to do it again tomorrow if I do it today. But Monday is my late-night at work, and I… Continue

Today has been good. I made a plan this morning and I've stuck to it. More importantly I was relaxed today. I didn't obsess about anything. I figured out what I was going to eat and aimed for lower calories today since I'm weighing in tomorrow. I probably should have worked out today. I didn't really feel like it though so I gave myself permission to take the day off. TOM is officially here and I'm crampy so I deserve a rest.
I'm weighing in tomorrow morning. I'm still not very… Continue

So here's the test, my first weigh in is on Monday, and I'm pretty good with keeping things together while I'm at work because there's a very easy routine to follow, but when I'm home, I'm not too sure. Have the next three days off, we're going to the movies tomorrow with the little boy, not sure what is the best snack there, maybe I'll bring my own, any have any good tips??? Thanks for keeping me accountable!!! Yay
Just a food journal post to keep me on track.

I'm having a really great day so far! I can't believe the calorie counting is going so well. This is my 5th day tracking calories and it is getting a lot easier. Now I have a general idea of the calories in the things I like to eat and feel pretty confident with it. I even had Pizza Hut the other day and went online to see the values of what I was going to be eating. VERY eye-opening! The calories in restaraunt foods are just amazing!

It's 90 degrees here in OKC and a friend invited us over to sit in his hot tub. How cool is that? My husband and I are grilling some steaks with green beans and it's just a perfect summer weekend. I thought, "I've been following my diet plan for about 2 weeks now and am down in the 160's again. Only about 12 lbs above my all-time low. How about some ice cream tonight?" Ice cream is definitely my week spot.
Then I put on my bathing suit. Same bathing suit in the pictures up here,… Continue
