No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
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
So I feel like I have done a really great job giving up the juice for the last time in my life. Most of you are long term bloggers and know that I have struggled for YEARS trying to give up soda (Coke in particular). I have done it for a few weeks at a time over the years, but I have never been successful in kicking it for good. I feel like that finally changed for me. I mean I don't miss it. I don't even want it anymore.
I was able to enjoy close to a 20 pound weight…Continue

I usually work the finish line so I asked my husband to volunteer instead and went ahead and ran it.…Continue

Although I seem to be gaining instead of losing right now I feel like I have a better attitude and I feel like I can actually do this. I am still playing around with my calories and workouts. There are so many options and we are not all the same and I can say with 100% certainty I am addicted to sweets. I also am aware that when I have a bad day I crave extra food and sweets. Being aware I think is half the battle. I have already lost like 90lbs. I can do this! I am not getting my water in…Continue

Woke up this am and wasn't full of snot! The weather was great and I felt the need to get out to the park for a walk. So I txt'd my walking buddy and we scheduled to meet at 11:30. Since I'm kinda still hanging onto this sinus/upper respiratory junk and my friend is nursing a knee injury we knew we would just be walking. I was surprised that we put in 4.5 miles before we called it quits.
It felt good to get back out there. Its been almost 4 weeks since my feet have hit the…Continue
