Something is Following Me....

Every bridge I cross, every corner I turn, something is following me...it's my BUTT! After marrying an active rancher with a HUGE appetite I went from hating to be in the kitchen cooking for myself to truly LOVING to try new recipes and cooking for him. In the love to cook, I found that I loved to eat too! I ate just like he did. I just didn't work as hard after! So while he remains the man I married 18 years ago...I continued to give him more, and more, and more to love!!! I gained 40 lbs just ...
Every bridge I cross, every corner I turn, something is following me...it's my BUTT! After marrying an active rancher with a HUGE appetite I went from hating to be in the kitchen cooking for myself to truly LOVING to try new recipes and cooking for him. In the love to cook, I found that I loved to eat too! I ate just like he did. I just didn't work as hard after! So while he remains the man I married 18 years ago...I continued to give him more, and more, and more to love!!! I gained 40 lbs just feeding him well. Then came the kids and what was sometimes easier to loose became harder than ever (not to mention they all added a few lbs to the mix!). So here I am, wife to Mr. Wonderful, mother of four beautiful children and sparked into loosing weight with diet and exercise (I know...the long, slow,SUCCESSFUL way!) I don't ever expect to be 130lbs again, just like I'll never be 21 again! But I would like to get to a healthy, sustainable weight. I'd like to go to the closet, put on something without thinking of what might be hanging out to embarrass me, and be comfortable in it. Most of all, I want to set a healthy example for my kids and leave the BUTT behind!!!
UPDATE: I have moved from 209 to 179 with spark & such over the last year or so...I am pleased to have been able to keep that weight off & am looking forward to losing more...I haven't completely ditched the butt yet! Updated update! I have a job that I LOVE...but spend far too much time behind a desk. I am no longer where I need to be or even headed in the right direction..I am making a change to that NOW!

SparkPoints: 13,731

Fitness Minutes: 23,130

My Goals:
SHORT TERM
100 oz H2O Daily
Food tracker Daily
Journal Daily
Keep getting in the daily exercise (even if I don't like it!)

LONG TERM
go to the closet in the morning and wear the first thing I grab, not try to figure out what hides the most. Inspire my children to ALWAYS be healthy.
Hear people say "You look great for having FOUR kids" and actually believe it myself!

My Program:
The Spring of 2008 forced some changes I worked as hard as the hubby for a while...doing some of his chores while he was away...The unstructured exercise was a great help turning me into a loser! It set me up for the "Diet & Exercise" to lose attitude.

Morning
IsaShake & Cleanse (it's easy for a breakfast hater like myself to stick to)

Noon & Night
Sensible (minimaly processed) meals and snacks

DAILY
Lots of WATER
use trackers! Faithfully (the more I keep track of the more thought I put into what I'll be eating next!)



Personal Information:
36 - Catholic Wife & mother of 4 (mother of 4 not wife of FOUR!!) Hubby & I own a sheep ranching operation, I am Director of Sheep Wagon Days (annual educational and family fun festival). Throw in being a consultant for The Pampered Chef & AtHome America, maintaining our ranch website & building them for others, committee or board member to several community boards and you have a little insite into our crazy wonderful life!

Other Information:

emoticon Glad to see you joined the HCG SUPPORT TEAM. Sparks does NOT approve of the HCG Diet AT ALL, but they do allow us the team and so we post on the message board there.
I'm on R3P2D20 and doing great. The diet works if u don't cheat.

Read "Shrink Yourself" by Roger Gould, M.D. on stopping emotional eating and not letting stress cause you to regain the pounds.

www.hcgprotocol.com
is the best place to get information about the diet as Tim is so helpful.

I am so glad you are on the Photobugs team! It doesn't matter if you can't visit us everyday, just knowing you drop by when you can is enough. I am really looking forward to seeing more of your pictures. Leave us a note on the 'chat' thread when you post some more of them. I bet you really have some beautiful ones of your ranch.
Have a great day!
Cheri
