Wednesday, June 04, 2014

June Goals!!...lots has been going on in my life...not getting into it but I am determined to be the best me I can be!! Bought smaller plates for my hubby and I and for Father's Day this year I ordered him a Spark Activity Tracker...got measuring spoon and gonna get out the kitchen scale again!!!

Goals this month:
1) Track ALL my food!
2) Track ALL my fitness
3) Drink 8- 8oz of water a day!!!
4) light up all my lights on my tracker everyday...set at 4,999 steps a day for now.
5) keep after my husband who is also on this weight loss journey with me and help him lose weight!!
6) Be happy in my life and in my skin!!
7) buy a new tankini and take my son to the new pool in town(my old one is 3 sizes too big!!)


I am thinking my husband Tim and I are gonna be a force to be reckoned with. We are gonna try new things to lose weight and we are getting closer as a couple also!!

    With 10 days you can make a start but you will need a life time to be there for your daughter as she grows and flourishes

saw an ad!!

Tuesday, May 13, 2014

I saw an ad for a metabolic research something or another for losing weight, I was thinking I should try that!! Then read where they gave you a personal meal plan for the week and an exercise program and typically you only lose 1 to 2 pounds a week!!
I didn't look to see how much it costs or anything..it said it would have a personal plan for me to lose weight...scientifically!!! I like science and all but Sparkpeople has all that stuff and it is free, I mean I have to utilize everything and do my part to find the answer to unlock my weight loss potential!!
I saw it and it made me realize that!!! I have all of that stuff here in front of me all the time from my home and don't have to go to a center!! So I am thinking starting next week I will start a menu plan and find a exercise program thing I can follow and weigh in every week and see what happens!!

    I felt EXTREMELY relieved when I first read The Spark and noticed all the free resources sparkpeople.com has to offer. I may seek out more challenging things like joining a gym, personal trainers, carb cycling, etc. but Sparkpeople is ALWAYS my safe-go-back-to spot. The community alone makes it worth it to me.

  I agree with John. There are so many scams and gimmicks out there that I personally wouldn't try. Stay with Spark, it's the way to go. You CAN do it.

    The ads promise that one person will get thin and one person will et rich. More often than not, on ly one person achieves their goal and it is noy the one who wants to lose weight. You are right, all the tools we need are right here

Make Today the Greatest Day of Your Life

a nice compliment

Friday, May 09, 2014

My father in law came over last night and told me I looked like I had lost a ton of weight..I haven't seen him in a week and the scale hasn't moved...I said I guess I have. I forget all the time that dang thing just shows numbers not my shape or muscles or anything. I have a pair of skinny jeans..real skinny jeans not MY "skinny" jeans..well, this morning I didn't struggle to get in them and I don't feel squished or anything having them on. I put on a clingy top and I don't feel like my fat rolls are showing....that is new!!! I was surprised the scale hasn't moved but I feel really good and others notice and that makes me feel good...even though I am always downplaying it as them just being nice but really I have lost 40 pounds since 4/2012 and that isn't anything to sneeze at!!, I have this voice in my head telling me I could have lost more if I had tried harder or whatever...which I am sure is true but Damn 40 pounds is a LOT!!! working on that voice to be nice to me instead of being down on me. My son plays baseball and his coach tells the boys "never Quit" so I am not gonna quit either!!
