Well, the scale at the Doctor's office was wrong, I weighed in tonight and I lost .4 pounds! I'm so happy that I finally lost. It's going to be a tough journey but I'm sticking to it.

I joined BTL two weeks ago and have enjoyed reading everyone's blogs, i've even commented a few times but i have not written anything until now. So many people say how it helps in the process and i am all for that! Currently i am at 206 lbs and cannot wait to get under 200 lbs. I started this journey in February and have managed to slowly loose 24lbs and keep it off. I am so much more educated about weight loss, nutrition, sodium intake, and overall health.
I am on holidays for the… Continue

I get up with full intentions to excersise. I like to excersise once I start it, but starting it is the problem. How do you find the time? Between breakfast, changing clothes, diapers, laundry & the other million things I have to do, where's the time. If anyone has any tips I would love to hear them. I want to ---since tommorrows the 1st --challenge myself to excersise everyday this month. Anyone up for the challenge. Even its a short 10 min.-that deserves a pat on the… Continue

This whole "Blog" thing is REALLY new and foreign to me! But.....I had to find a way to get some accountability back and to somehow get back on track with my new "healthy lifestyle". I kind of stopped counting calories, following my previous food plan, or being cautious in general about 1 week prior to my planned tummy tuck on 5/29/08. I think initially it was mostly nerves. After the surgery, initally I think it was me telling myself "Hey you just had surgery, you don't feel good, just eat… Continue

Well today was odd. I went with the husband to his doctor's appointment. He's had hormone difficulties for several years, and today was his checkup. It's always an odd thing because the hormones affect a very sensitive to talk about area! We did however find out that we should be able to have children. We've been talking about it recently and I know I'm not ready now. For awhile, I really didn't think I wanted to have kids, and I'm still not sure now, but at least we know we probably can.… Continue

Today went well even though I woke up 45 minutes late. (gah!!) I weighed in and was down another pound. Huzzah!. I had to skip my morning workout, but took my already-packed bag along and went after work... even though I totally did NOT want to. I did 3 miles on the elliptical and then strength training on my legs. Tomorrow I'll do arms. I'm hoping to start alternating strength training so that I can do it most days of the week.
I was also super-duper anal about my food today, which… Continue

I've never, ever, ever been a runner. I've dreaded running, avoided running, failed shamefacedly at running (... back in high school. Oi.)
Tonight, I finished week 5 of the Couch to 5K running plan. That meant that from running 8 minutes at a stretch, I went to running 20 minutes at a stretch. It's the dreaded run of the whole 9-week program. And it went ... wonderfully. I run on the treadmill (... summer in the South, ugh ...) and covered the instrument panel, letting the podcast be… Continue

I decided today that it's time to move to a new place. I will put in my sixty days notice to my landlord tomorrow (she also happens to be my friend and roommate - but she's away for the summer). I feel it's time for a change, time to move on in a new place. I will look for my very first apartment on my own. I have been surfing the internet like crazy and normally when I'm at the computer, I'm munching away. Today though I was so excited to look at the listings that I didn't even think to myself… Continue

I admit; I have not been faithful to the blog. I have not been able to get my groove back since finding out I was pregnant. I think it all went downhill when I started getting sick over and over and over again. Then I had to deal with my son’s sicknesses and it became a revolving cycle.
I did not anticipate this. My first pregnancy was a breeze; some would categorize as abnormal. I had morning sickness once and one attack of food poisoning. Other that those two episodes, it was smooth… Continue

It doesn't feel like a Monday to me at all. You see, I had class all weeked--so, i'm going on my ninth day of class in a row tomorrow. And, yesterday we took a practice multiple choice exam, which basically simulated the multiple choice section of the bar exam. Yea, it blew. And today, we spent 8 hours going over it.... and guess what! Get to do another 8 hours tomorrow!! It's pretty mind numbing.
Anyway, this weekend went pretty well as far as staying OP because my schedule was so… Continue

Wow, Oh wow! There is no wiping this smile off my face today.
First, I woke up and faced the scale after my weekend at the in-laws. It wasn't an official weigh-in day, but I just wanted to see if I gained like last time I visited. Not this time! I was even down a little from Thursday.
Then the day just got better...I checked the mail and our stimulus check came today! YAHOO! Sure is nice to have that extra money in savings in case we need it. Beacuse I was considered a… Continue

I am in self destruct mode...I don't know why and I can't seem to stop even though I know full well that what I am doing isn't good...
I haven't been journaling, I've been eating sweets like crazy, I haven't checked out what point values are for anything I've eaten in 2 weeks...I am up 3+ lbs since my birthday 10 days ago, and I need a good swift kick in the ass!!!
What is wrong with me? I was doing SO WELL! anyone have any good kickstart ideas???I'm desperate!!!

This is my first post on my Blog to Lose blog. My name is Maggie and I want to lose 70 pounds and I'm doing that by following the Weight Watchers Flex Plan and going to Weight Watchers meetings. So far in the past three weeks I gained just a little bit not a lot. Well I was at the doctor's this morning, got on the scale and it was 192.6 pounds, which means I gained .8 pounds(I weighed in last week at 191.8 pounds). So I'm nervous to weigh in at my Weight Watchers meeting… Continue

So I started the WW Wendie Plan. If you are not familiar with her theory, it basically taking your total number of points for the week and dividing between the 7 days giving you some higher days and then lower days. It is to confuse your body so that you don't get to used to eating a certain number of calories/points per day. So far it is going good, not sure if it is going to show on the scale. I sure hope so. It feels like I am starting WW all over. Kind of fun and challenging all over again.… Continue

Yesterday I was searching through my closet for something to wear when I stumbled upon this cute little business suit I got as a gift a few years back. The thing has never been able to fit since I got it, the pants didn't fit & you'd have better luck trying to get incredable hulk into the jacket than me. Well that was the past, I fit beautifully into it now! I even have about 1 1/2 - 2 inches of room in the pants and I'm able to button the jacket without so much as a tug! Feeling inspired… Continue

It sure doesn't seem like a Monday to me. I have the day off to attend Amy's funeral, which was this morning. It was a beautiful service...and Amy would have loved it, as she always loved being the center of attention! LOL Her dad and her oldest son Zach both spoke and did a beautiful job. Zach had a tough time towards the end as he read the last text message he got from his mom...but he composed himself enough to give a remarkable tribute to her. She would have been so proud!

You always hear that said but does it actually ever happen? Well it did for me this weekend and it totally happened by accident, lol. Let's start at the very beginning (did anyone else sing the beginning of Sound of Music song "Do Re Mi" when they read that? haha)
So Friday after I got off work, I rushed home to prepare a bag for my best friend's boyfriend's (Sean's) birthday (I introduced them our freshman year of college and they've been together almost 5 years now - awww!) The… Continue

I don't have a lot of time for this post. Had to go to the 10:30 a.m. WW meeting because I have a noon meeting at work to go to. But I wanted to share my good news before the long, boring meeting that I don't want to attend. It'll be two hours of my life that I'll never get back ... two hours that I could be using at least part of to get some exercise ... but I digress.
With an out-of-control Tuesday and not-great Friday night, I figured I'd be lucky to lose a half pound ... but the… Continue

I felt like crap on Sunday... I felt like I couldn't move my body the way I needed too... it felt like it was shutting down and all I really wanted to do was sleep... but I colnd'h because DH had things to do and Dylan would not take a nap... so when I went to the Dr. today to have my back adjusted I asked him about it... He said its severe sleep deprevation... because my almost 9 month old baby still wakes up at night... almost every night... I am still not convinced that is it but he did… Continue
