Is needing to learn to take ME time!

Hi I am Carol. I have been overweight since grade 12. Weight went on partially from meds and pregnancies while on those meds. But I am taking a NO EXCUSES attitude to my journey. With an upcoming trip and a family wedding in the future I find a renewed sense of motivation. I know I can do this....LET"S DO IT!

I have recently received my license to subtitute teach in local schools. I am working part time with my husband while the kids are at school. I am finding it difficult to manage my time between the house, kids, work, outside responsibilities, much less getting much ME time.
I am currently have 25% of my total goal lost. I am SO DONE being the person in the mirror I hate to look at. I want to be a confident person.
I seem to have gotten lost over the last 6 weeks and my weight loss has greatly slowed down. I intend on regaining momentum and taking back my control of myself!

My Goals:
I have decided to reward myself at every 20lbs loss with colourful hair streaks.
Goal #1 to be under 200lbs. by end of May 2015.
Goal #2 I want to be down 50lbs, which would be 187lbs by the end of summer 2015.
Goal #3 I would like to reach 150lbs by February 4, 2016.
I am marking my total loss from 237lbs that I weighed in at when I started Ideal Protein, even though I weighed 247 according to my doctor before Christmas.


My Program:
I am doing Ideal Protein with my daughter and Mother-in-law and tracking on Spark.
I plan to start walking as soon as the snow has cleared off of the track. Even found a walking buddy.
I am going to make sure 8 is a miniumum amount of glasses of water I drink a day.

Personal Information:
I am a mom of 5. I work for my husband's land surveying company. I also volunteer some, not as much as previous years, but only beause of my health.
I am married to my high school sweetheart. We are a typical family and currently 3 of us are trying to lose weight. I am trying to feed the younger kids the same food as we are eating to try to teach and enforce healthier eating habits.

Other Information:
I am realizing how fabulous some people in my life are. I always knew...but now I KNOW! I love my family and friends with a power that even surprises me!

Aw, thanks for thinking of me. :-D Yeah, I've been pretty slack this past year too, and like you, dealing with a bunch of emotional roller coasters, and still fighting an uphill battle. Glad to see you're still here! :-D

Hey Carol! You're still on Spark! I'm so proud of you for sticking around. :-D And of course I'll cheer you on, you need it too. :-D Thank you for the kind words, life has certainly thrown me for a loop since the fall, but I know I'll be ok in the end.

And you will too. :-)

emoticon Happy BELATED Birthday, DONE GIRL emoticon

The Capricorn girl had to be "old when young" as she took on a lot of responsibility early, so she never was able to be "just a silly kid." She was always expected to "act her age" and so when grown she can feel she missed part of her childhood. She gets along with Virgo, Taurus, Pisces, Cancer and Aquarius. She makes a good businesswoman and often works with hair and makeup. (Dolly Parton and Victoria Principal are both Cappy women.) She can have problems with her knees and headaches from stress. She isn't made to be fat as she dislikes others judging her and her appearance is important to her. She has the self discipline to stay with a diet and also to exercise IF SHE WANTS.
Capricorn is associated with the harshness of winter and its stark realities.

In Capricorn, the Sun is strongly goal-directed and persistent. Ambitious, serious and dedicated to duty, life is difficult, but you are the type of person who will triumph and achieve success. Your aptitude to persevere, no matter how difficult the road, sets you apart from most of your peers. You are anxious to climb the ladder of fortune, and you can usually reach your goals because of your sense of the right way of doing everything. Your patience is never ending.
You are a very thoughtful and serious person, thinking everything through carefully before you set off in any direction. You possess excellent reasoning skills, and you can be counted on to select options that are both practical and that provide an economic advantage. Your attitude is conservative; conservative with time, money, and all other resources. Your philosophy is waste not, want not. You are also likely to be conservative in your political and social attitudes, although your age, upbringing, and education perspectives may influence this somewhat.
You are especially well suited to business and government because of your sense of organization and structure. You combine a talent for management with an ability to carry out instructions with care. You are the quintessential careerist, taking job and duties very seriously. Therefore, you are never one to shirk responsibility and you have very little use for those that do. That which matters most to you is your public image. You show your best face to the public. You enjoy being in a position of power and authority, although you are not very much inclined to enjoy the limelight. You may prefer instead to run your business from an isolated perspective. You are loyal and dedicated, and you demand utter loyalty and dedication from subordinates. Advancing up the ladder of success is all important. You are unconcerned about, sometimes even ruthless toward, those getting in your path as you move upward.
You don't handle chaotic situations very well. You may need to develop the ability to lighten up a little and not take life, and everything else so seriously. Although you are self-disciplined, responsible, and practical, at times you can wallow in self-pity. It's essential for you to remember that your most important asset is self-esteem, and you should never devalue this. Rigidity and fear of change may be your biggest stumbling block.
Sober and reserved in your dealings with others, it takes you a good while to warm up enough to anyone to be considered a close friend. Yet once you do, you are a very caring, reliable, and most steadfast ally. Your private side is different from your public side. In private you are shy and sensitive. The harshness of your public image disappears. Emotionally demanding relationships are very difficult. Love relationships may be more like business relationships, and you are unsure of yourself in most intimate situations.
