What has been happening

Thursday, September 12, 2013

It has been a good while since my last bog, also I haven't been on here much. Well I did find my dress!!!! Now just need to lose a decent amount by January so they can start the long process of altering it (it arrives in January and the girl ordered a huge size, hoping they have to order a smaller one!!!!!) Well she decided to order an 18 when the 16 was pretty lose!!!! Well lose in most areas just not the ladies!

Ryan and I went to Houston last week and had a blast! It was great seeing my mom! Tons of bad food choices!!!! But we did go hiking and walked all over A&M campus before the game. Reminiscing our time in College Station together! Needless to say we really want to move back, and maybe I can finish school and he could go to Grad school or major in something new. Or just be my math tutor while he has hos job!

Also drank tons while there! Not something to be proud of and all the empty calories in it! But hanging with friends and having a good time just went to well. I did go ahead on and get on the scale, and it was not a pretty sight.

However, I am back to what I was when we left! Hopefully getting back into the groove of SP I can tone and lose! Honestly it keeps me doing right!

Now time to do some workout!

Motivation, Motivation, Motivation

Sunday, June 23, 2013

Well my lack of motivation has caused a little bit of weight gain! Now also could be my Thyroid! I will blame both!!!

Well I am now on a new dose of Synthroid. So hopefully things go back to normal! People were not kidding when they told me if I needed a new dose I would know! Things were just way off! So far this new dose is kind of helping and it's only n=been a few days. Hope in a week or 2 I feel like me again! My blood test said I didn't need a new dose but my changes in mood and everything else told the Doctor I needed to attempt a new one. Now in a few weeks if I am having palpitations or anything I experienced with my Hyper thyroid then he will put me back on my lower dose. But so far things are good!

Now as for motivation I am not sure how to get it back! Then again it could all be related to the dosage of my meds... It is amazing how much that pesky gland controls your body!!!!!! I have set a few goals to help aid in getting that motivation back!

The first and most important one is no trying on wedding dresses until I lose 10 more pounds!!!! Now if in 2 months I have only lost say 5-6 then I will go ahead because at least I have tried! And after all I want to do this the healthy way! I refuse to be one of those brides that starve myself! Well I just down right love food way to much for that! :)

Also at work it doesn't help that we all love snacking!!! Well we need to replace our snack drawer with a bit more healthy options than cheese its!!!!!! Also everyone loves baking and brings it in for us!!!! NO NO NO NO MORE I say!!! Now 2 of the other tellers also have a hypo thyroid!!! One has decided to help aid me in the right direction as I will with her! We will try to get Barbara in on this new health kick. I ordered some Organic fruit and nut bars! Strictly fruit, nuts, and honey!!!! So that will go in our snack area! And my friend said it keeps her full until her next meal and also gives her natural energy.

But one of my coworkers (we met up and got out nails done yesterday) was so happy because I avoided Chicfala yesterday!!!! I had a grilled chicken salad instead! Now anyone who knows me knows when I'm in Amarillo I have to go get chicken nuggets from there!!! I am highly addicted to chic fa la :). And even though I made the right choice I am dying inside because I didn't go get my secret love :). I usually got it as a reward and well yesterday I felt I did not deserve a reward! Gained weight and have been eating out all week and not working out like I normally would. So no reward for me! Maybe next weekend haha!

Plus once I get internet back I need to log on everyday!!! Honestly I noticed that when I was logging on everyday I was meeting goals and feeling extra motivated. I need SP in my life!!!!!! I need the friends I have met on here and the friends I will find!!

And speaking of friends on here I have become pretty close to one! She is hardly on anymore but we talk on facebook and texts. She will be attending my wedding :) and has offered to make the cake!! She needs to get her happy little behind back on here as well!

And to end this I will stop saying Ill do it tomorrow!!!!!!!! No more tomorrows and only today! :)

    Hey Tammy!
Glad to hear you got back online and that the job is still going well. I can't believe you didn't get those chicken nuggets. You should be proud of yourself. Good luck with more weight loss. It will be so worth it once you start trying on wedding dresses. Happy fourth!

Challenge ending and last weekend... got ENGAGED

Friday, May 10, 2013

Last weekend I got engaged!!!! Was dead on about the flowers!!!!!!!! SP gave away the type he got!

Well my challenge has ended this week! I think I did good. Did not meet my goal wight during it but I did lose a great amount during it :). I am now 171.4! And I think I lost 10-15 pounds during it. Cannot wait for a summer challenge!!!!

I managed to hit my calorie goal more. I made it a goal to hit 1200 a day. Realized I was eating about 500-800 a day in the beginning. And that is not very healthy. There were some days where I wouldn't eat at all. Not because I starved myself but some days if I eat even a tiny bite of food I will be vomiting all day or just dying of stomach pains. I've had this issue for about 10 years. (started a bit after my dad passed away and I started doing bad things)

I am really glad I did this challenge :). If I hadn't of done it I probably would be in the 180s or 90's... Hope to lose more next challenge!

    Congratulations on your engagement - even though it wasn't a surprise totally, I bet you were still excited and "surprised" because it MIGHT not have been what you thought. That is so special and exciting. Good luck.

I always consider that making progress is actually MORE important than the specific "goal number" on the challenges. I have done several month-long challenges where the goal was 10 pounds and have lost 5 or 7 or 3 pounds during them and felt that I had done pretty well. It isn't always the exact amount lost, it is the effort and the direction that I am moving.

SP ruins surprises

Thursday, May 02, 2013

Well if nobody has noticed SP now has ads that involve things you have looked up lately. I've looked at rings, dresses, and even different cable companies, and so forth. Well SP has had ads everyday for those things I have gone to!

Well get home and log on to track things and notice FTD is popping up every place I go on here! Plus ads for the hotel we are staying at in CO! And I booked it the other day and have not been on that site since!

I am going to go out on a limb here and say Ryan bought me flowers and they will be waiting in our hotel room! I have not been on FTD flowers website in a long time. I will report back Monday or if I log on with my phone while relaxing if my guess was right!

I will still be shocked when/if it happens. Ryan is not big on romance after all. Let alone surprises, he sucks at surprising me!

But Thank you SP for blowing his cover!

I could go back and look at the history but I will not! Just like his bank account it's his and he can do what he wants (not buy this gun he wants!!!!!) No need to snoop. No reason to snoop. Plus last Christmas I ruined my gift from him! I was going in my history for something I needed and forgot, and I clicked on a link wondering what the heck it was and when I did, it was obvious it was my gift.... Christmas day came and I was right.

Time to get ready for CO!!!!!
