Drinking loads of water

Sunday, March 23, 2014

I'm drinking loads of water so my surprisingly small bladder is making that a fun game. I have found that I drink more water when I buy a new travel cup or a new water bottle. I've also set up a point system aside from SparkPeople to track my own things. So far so great.

Week 1

Saturday, July 13, 2013

Well this week wasn't great. I lost track of stuff...Didn't do all my goals...Better luck next week. Fresh start tomorrow. I'm going to keep positive about it. I'm not going to give in to the temptation of stopping now. Not when I'm so far. Granted it's only 5 lbs but I don't want to give up.

    That's the way to look at it. You can start fresh as soon as you miss a step but Monday is always a great day to really start fresh.

    Glad I could help someone while I'm having trouble myself.

    I like your positive attitude when facing setbacks. I, too, have had a lousy week, but am encouraged by your post.

Lost!

Tuesday, July 09, 2013

I weighed myself today and I found out that I lost weight!! So happy. It's only 5.4 lbs, but it's noticeable and it's great! It's inspired me to try even harder!

We get food stamps in the next couple of days. With that we are planning on getting some healthier foods. Then maybe I can try a SparkPeople recipe. My boyfriend lost weight too! I'm so happy for the both of us! I guess I started doing something right. Now just to keep trying. I'd love to be able to tell my family at the family reunion that I've lost at least 10 lbs.

I'm not going to lie...I hope they notice at least a slight difference. Now to update my profile pictures on all the sites I use with a fitter smaller me! Super excited!!

So I'm trying to start fresh tomorrow. emoticon I was looking at my bucket list and realized that I had some things on there that I need to be healthier for. I need to be skinny for them or I need to be able to do them simply. One of them is to do a cancer walk. Another is to do a marathon. emoticon I also have a couple of family reunions coming up and would like to look better for them.

However, coming from a family of overweight people I worry that it may be hard to get up there and be at a better weight. It doesn't help that our scale is now dead. So I might need to buy new batteries. I fell of the wagon like I expected I would, but I am going to do my best to not allow myself to do that again.

So today hasn't been as productive as I planned, but I did buy some new pants that I can get a job soon hopefully. I needed some nicer pants than my Navy sweat pants and my black workout pants. I am working on my swagbucks as well so that I can get some new workout items. Hopefully I'll have enough points on there to get the gift card.

I started looking at the recipes on here as well and I like a lot of them. I hope to be able to make some soon. Well that's all for today.

    Good luck with the job hunt!! Some days are just not as productive as we'd like. Tomorrow is another day. Take it slowly, with baby steps and soon you will find yourself making great strides. The recipes here on Spark are fantastic and so healthy for you. I've made several of them and have yet to be disappointed. I wish you great success with your goals. Take care and God bless, Deb
