I'm about to lose it!

I've been on this journey for a long time it seems.

I'm so much more that the number on the scale, but sometimes it's really hard to remember that.

My Goals:
In a nutshell my goal is to be happy. That means a lot of things including learning to be happy regardless of my situation; learning to cope, learning to be authentic and not controlled by fear. Being healthy is necessary. Physically and mentally.

My Program:
Attend OA meetings and really begin to understand and change my relationship with food. Focus on food as fuel. Learn my limitations and practice abstinence.

Track my calories, exercise regularly. (I'm still working out the details of this). Get up when I fall down.

Personal Information:
I live in the beautiful but wet state of Oregon, but am originally from sunny San Diego. I'm married to a truly great guy and have three seriously good looking (if I do say so myself), intelligent (and challenging) kids (ages 9, 2, and 4 months).

My husband and I both work full time and he is also a full time student. It be crazy up in here!

Other Information:
I've been gaining and losing weight for the past few years but I think I'm finally in the right headspace to do this fo' realz!

yea its been a tough week. I dont like feeling helpless. I know a HUGE part of me loosing weight is because i workout. Staying around my pts is helping me maintain for the most part. I keep bouncing with a half lb,. if i only had alittle workout. Think im gonna do a mile walk today and hope it helps, if it hurts, then i'll stop but i need to do SOMETHING. I tried just randomly some of the moves id do with the WATP dvd, the kicks seems to be the most painful, so i would just walk during that. This is hard for me. I tend to snack when im bored, and if im not exercising or doing something i snack. So ive been really trying., to stay busy with something.. not much i can do. I cant even sweep, well i could but picking up the pile is a struggle :( lol.

How r u doing?

oh geez! That's a ;long time to be out running around! I KNOW u went WAY past 10k Steps :) so that alone was a workout :) See that u exercised for the day! :) haha
Actually didnt get to do Jillian yesterday- that sounds weird, anyways- i went for a short jog then danced around later on last night. LOL um i normally weigh myself with and without clothes, i weigh myself without clothes for a accurate i just weighed myself with clothes on....168 !!!!!!!!!!!!! WITH CLOTHES! so that tells me this...... which i havent done yet weigh myself without.....but I'm either 167.5 or 167! WTF!? This is a great week! I lose so slow, and for me to see weigh melting off this week, well it amazes me!I hope to get my 5% at WI on saturday and my 10 lb star finally!

My mom literally lost the weight so fast, yesterday i was at her house and she told me she weighed 118! I'm LIKE WHAT!?! She started in a size 14 now shes in a 4! She lost officially 50 lbs this morning at her weigh in! I wish we could lose it that fast! I guess my mom tells my nana all the time, that she feels bad for me , because i workout like crazy and i follow the plan and it comes off so slow. I'm like well That's nice to know lol.
But because I'm not leaving the house today- my plan is to do the 2nd workout of JM, then go jogging when the husband comes home again. And instead of going around once around the neighborhood I'm going twice.

What are your goals for today?
