I Will Do This!

9/1/14 - I had a brief resurgence of dedication at the beginning of the year then my dog died and I got depressed and didn't care what I was doing to myself. Time has passed and I am ready to start over, again. And again. And again. One of these times it's gonna have to "take". :)

2/4/14 - After recommitting in January. I am now happy to say that I feel that weight loss mojo again. I have been tracking all my food and started exercising again. Hopefully my next update will be in this same positive vein.

1/12/14 - Sad to say I have gained even more weight back. I just got in a mode of not caring. I lost my mojo. I'm going to commit to logging my food again and once that's back starting up the exercise again. I have got to stop this before I slide all the back to my original weight.

5/21/12 - Update: I totally slacked since December'11. I have gained 20 lbs back and am over 200 again. Grrr! I need to put a stop to it now before it gets completely out of control. I started exercising again and am going to recommit to portion control and eating healthy.

11/12/11 - Update: I have lost 75 lbs and have decided to reset my weight ticker to a starting weight of 200 lbs so that I can keep focused on my end goal without my past success making me a bit lazy about moving forward.

7/18/11 - Started last year on 7/12/10. Between July and December I managed to lose about 50 lbs. During the holidays I lost the drive to lose but managed to maintain my weigh-loss for the most part only gaining about 7 lbs back. July 2011 rolled around and I started to get the itch to lose weight again. So I rebooted my program and am again super motivated to lose the next 50 lbs. Wish me luck!

Original Introduction
7/12/10 I am 44 with twin boys, who are now 6 years old. I want to be able to go on the rides with them at Disneyland and not worry about if I am going to fit or not. I want to take them to the water park and not just sit there watching! I want to get off the floor without having to hold on to the furniture! :) It is time to eat the way I know I should and get off the couch and get moving!

Ah, food vacations! I didn't do too bad this Thanksgiving. The stuffing is my favorite part, and I didn't eat all of it, so emoticon lol. And I didn't even eat the pie. Shocking!!

Here's to a wonderful Holiday Season!!!

Yeah... I'm not worried about this morning's weigh-in. I know that's totally weird for me, 'cause I would normally have freaked the %$&# out, but not this time. emoticon

Ahhh... So you found a new game?? No wonder you're behind on your Christmas shopping!! emoticon I know how it is, though. I can spend hours on a game I really like. It's so easy to do! You start playing after dinner, and all of a sudden you notice that it's getting light outside. Come on, girl... Get yer shopping done! emoticon

BTW, have you and your wife decided to remodel the kitchen after all?

---~~~ I am Thankful for ~~~---

**The taxes I pay because it means
I am employed.
**The clothes that fit a little too snug
because it means I have enough food to eat.
**My shadow who watches me work,
because it means I am out in the sunshine
**A lawn that needs to be mowed,
windows that have to be washed
and gutters that need fixing because
it means I have a home
**The spot I have found at the end
of a parking lot, because it means
I am capable of walking.
**All the complaining I hear about
our government, because it means
we have freedom of speech.
** The lady in church who sings off-key
because it means that I can hear.
**The huge piles of laundry and ironing
because it means my loved ones are near.
**The alarm that goes off in the early
morning hours because it
means that I am alive.
