Too much, too fast!!

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

My problem is that I want too much, too fast. I want this weight gone today!!! It is hard to remember that I put this weight on one day at a time and that is the way it needs to come off. I also do too much and then I get burnt out. Trying to find a happy medium. On the plus side I have not gained anything but I still looking forward to being out of the 200's. I just can't get over that hurdle no matter what torture I put my body through. My 30th birthday is coming fast and I know I will not make my 130 goal but if I lose something and making progress I will be happy. Right now I am focusing on meeting my goal of walking 366 miles in 1 year. I would like to find a buddy or a few buddies to go through this journey with. I have tried the teams but they are a little impersonal for me.


Sidetracked and Beat Up by Life

Thursday, August 02, 2012

Well....I got sidetracked on my weight loss goals for a while. In May, I found out that I was pregnant. We were delighted. Two weeks later, I ended up in the emergency room to find out that I had an ectopic pregnancy. I had to have emergency surgery and lost my left fallopian tube. I dealt with a lot of anxiety and stress for the next few weeks. During my recovery, the only thing I could think about was getting back to exercising. This whole ordeal, made me realize how short life is and you are never guaranteed the next day. I am now more determined then ever to reach my goal of 130 pounds by my 30th birthday. My first goal is to get to 199 pounds it will be great not to see the 200's anymore. Can't wait to say good bye to 200's!!!

  So sorry for your loss. That is a really tough thing.

Hope you see that 199 soon. I keep flirting with 200 myself....see it 1 week, and it's gone the next. Then I go on a trip and BOOM! There it is again. I'd like to swap it for 190 next time I weigh! :D

    Good goals. I will also be thrilled to get out of the 200s. I haven't been there in about 30 years.
So sorry to hear about your pregnancy complications. I feel so fortunate to have 2 healthy daughters and 5 awesome, healthy grandchildren. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Going Great!

Thursday, February 23, 2012

I have been doing great this week and other than a little tired, I feel better. I've limited my eating to 3 meals and 1 snack a day. I've been thinking about cutting red meat from my diet, but the rest of the family is not on board with that idea. I have entered into my first Mud Race. It is the weekend of Mother's Day and I have convinced my mom to go along with me. Maybe since she is being such a good sport, I will have to get us massages after the race. I still trying to break my addiction to the scale, it is like a drug. The scale can either make you feel really good or really bad. When I get my dependency to food under control, I then depend on the scale. Instead of burying my emotions under food, my mood depends upon what that number says on the scale. Next week, my goal will be to stop weighing myself everyday. I have to keep reminding myself everything is one day at a time. I gained one pound at a time, now it is time to lose it one day at a time.


Been too long!

Thursday, February 16, 2012

I haven't had the time to update anything lately. I had a few setbacks, I was working out really hard and I had gained 9 pounds. So I have been working to get those pounds off which I have succeeded. I now have to start chipping off the weight that I needed to lose in the first place. We have just moved, so that has helped me keep busy. My goals for February are to drink water, keep my blog updated, and get at least one workout a day in. My weight goal for this month is to get to 199.999999999. I can't wait to see 1 as the first number on the scale it has been too long.


My Journey to 130!

Thursday, January 12, 2012

Started my Journey to 130, I want to reach this goal by my 30th birthday which is next January. I have spent a decade being over weight and struggling with losing it. I am making permanent changes. I am working out everyday and watching what I eat. Keeping track of everything on Sparkpeople. The scale has gone up instead of down, but my clothes are fitting better. So I have chalked that up to my scale being evil. I need to break free of the scale anyway.

    Working out everyday is good!! And so is using the nutrition tracker. Don't forget that the scale isn't everything. You could be losing inches. It sounds like you might be, because you say your clothes fit better. Use the fitness tracker as well. Od course, don't forget your water and the tracker. Water is very important for your body and your healthy weight loss.
