I ate according to plan.
I didn't rip anyone's head off yet.
No headache today.
TRY HARDER NEXT TIME
I didn't exercise at lunchtime. (talked to a cute guy instead so my heart did pick up speed a little...does that count?)
And because I'm chicken I canceled a lunch date with a friend. I look at it like this...I'm in a fragile state. No one wants to see the girl on the diet crack at the buffet...taking everyone out as… Continue

This feels sooooo good to write - I had a beautiful, spot-on, OP day today!
It was weird, I was in TOTAL control from the moment I got up, I ate according to my plan (the only deviation was 1 oz of chicken that I nibbled on as I prepared lunch, and three Werther's candies this evening), and I came in right in range!
There were a couple of moments this afternoon where I kept thinking that I should be eating something (which had been happening daily), but none of the… Continue

The half marathon I ran in was this past Sunday- what a fantastic experience. I can see how it can be addicting. I loved running in such a huge group of people who all varied in shapes, sizes, paces, and reasons for running. Everybody in the race, watching the race, and volunteering at the race were all so supportive and encouraging. I would definately do it again, and would encourage those who are considering running in one to do it. Crossing the finish line after training for 12 weeks for… Continue

You know, sometimes the Biggest Loser really PISSES ME OFF. I'm just really upset that my favorite team got split up tonight and someone that really needed it
had to go home while the team I don't like at all (brown team) got to stay. I cried like 4 different times during the show tonight! I always cry...every single episode! It was such an emotional one, I was blubbering the last like 5 minutes. On a good note, I was so happy to see how much weight he's lost all by himself! I just felt… Continue

Okay, we already knew this, right? Everybody loves Roni for her wisdom, motivation, and general smartness in creating all of this. Well, now she has created an easy way to make a food journal, if you use twitter and weight watchers.
Well, I don't use either of those. But I signed up for twitter,
and debated whether to start calculating my food in points. Then I got overwhelmed, and realized that this is about making a lifestyle change for myself… Continue

I am happy to report that I am right at points, ending the day. I had a rough weekend, and then ended yesterday with a big fat ice cream mistake. So today I was extra careful. I made Tastes Like Lasagne Soup...Sarah posted the recipe on her blog this morning. It was great! I added extra beef to "beef" it up a bit. I still wanted my ice cream tonight, so this time I MEASURED it and COUNTED it. What a great idea, huh? ha ha Even with my ice cream, I am right at points. No more, no less. I also… Continue

Take the title of this blog and slice it as many ways as you like. It just all boils down to that, the difference is in your head. For some unknown reason I've reached a zen-like peace with the fact that I am not losing weight right now and that I'm not obsessively on plan or off plan for that matter....I just am, I'm just living. Lately I haven't made the best food choices, I haven't been actively controlling portions, and I haven't been planning or documenting my meals so what's the good news… Continue

Is it just me? Is that a crazy fear? If I am really honest sometimes that is why I eat. I eat in order to prevent feeling hungry. Now granted, the hunger I am afraid of is that hunger that is a result of really low blood sugars, headaches, fatigue, foggy brain, miserable. But because i worry about THAT type of hunger, I eat in order to prevent ANY hunger setting in.
Not all the time, but I notice it sometimes. I was heading to the gym the other night, I wasn't hungry, but the thought… Continue

I read a blog over the weekend by past Biggest Loser contestant Nicole and she talks about learning to accept the cards you are dealt in life. And for me those cards include having a struggle with weight. I have been overweight since I can remember. Currently I am battling that weight struggle and winning and I truly feel like I have finally accepted the cards I was dealt. I know that for the rest of my life I will have to watch what I eat and exercise because I have issues with food and I am… Continue

Hello everyone! Wow, I guess I've kinda been a blogging fool this week, haha. I usually don't post every single day, but I guess I feel like I have alot to say. It usually ends up that I think of things throughout the day that I want to write about, and when I get around to writing I can't think of much of anything! haha I should really start making notes so that I can remember!
Well, while I was online last night surfin the web, I found this interesting sounding recipe for Pumpkin… Continue

I had a great day, stayed right at my calories and walked 3 miles tonight. It felt so good to walk, we didn't walk this morning so we made up for it tonight. Back to walking in the morning tomorrow. I drank alot of water today and hope to keep that up also. I am watching The Biggest Loser, it is amazing how they can work so hard and still lose 2 lbs or even gain!

So I did not feel very good today and did not eat very nutritiously.
But I have to say that my husband is so amazing is ALWAYS says the perfect things to keep me positive and motivated in life and with my journey on becoming healthier.
Tonight as I was cooking dinner he surprised me cleaned and organized our bedroom and my 'office' ---THE BEST GIFT EVER!!! I strive to be more organized and I'm grateful when I receive any help in this area----I'm so happy as I sit here in my… Continue

Life has been way too busy. My son is in school and struggling this year. It is such a big change from elementary school to middle school. Homework is harder and there is so much more of it. Every night I have to spend at least an hour to help him. Since I have to check his homework anyway I might as well sit with him. He needs to have me tutor him on the homework since he isn't understanding what they are teaching him. They have large classes (30-35) so the teachers aren't able to do more than… Continue

I have internet
Allison and I are doing an intense plan!
I'm DEFINITELY down!
Woo hoo! Woo hoo!
Can you tell I'm excited?
Tomorrow's my official weigh in day, but I do know I'm down. Honestly. It's the first time in a long time... and it feel so good! The eating and exercise plan is intense... but it's what I needed. Something new... and with a time frame (12 weeks) so that I could… Continue

So here is the rest of the pictures of my two year old. Not the best, but still cute. It's always nice to have two cute little reminders of why I want to stay so healthy and have tons of energy to run around and chase them. Now that is on a good day.
Hope everyone is having a great day.…

Well, I made it to the gym. I would love to say I had a great sweaty workout and left feeling amped for more and more, but that is definitely not the case. I did it, and barely made 30 minutes. But the most important thing is I WENT. I went, did my thing, and left. It wasn't groundbreaking, it wasn't the best day of my life, it just was. I certainly feel better now, but while I was there I just wasn't into it. Rather than beat myself up, I'm congratulating myself that I even got to the gym… Continue

THAT'S ALL I HAVE TO LOSE TO STOP paying WW. Amazing how easy that number looks some days and how IMPOSSIBLE that goal looks other days.
Losing 5.2 more will bring me back to into the WW healthy range. It will also bring me back into the 170s for the first time in long time. I feel like I have been trying to reach this goal FOREVER. Well, its true- I have been above 180 (and most of the time above 185) for a long time.
I was consistently in the 170s from the time I made… Continue

geez all the sitting is making me crazy. I can't even believe that I am sitting. It is so not like me to be sitting. But I am trying very diligently to be sitting so that this stupid broken fibula can heal because, frankly, I don't want to be sitting. I want to be running. But I'm not. Which is, again, whatever. I didn't work out today which I feel kind of bad about. I've been doing 20 min of core and 10 min of abs and then some butt stuff and pilates but today nothing. I was supposed to work… Continue
