Better Late Than Never...........................

Sunday, February 12, 2012

Yesterday morning, I weighed myself and the scales read 299.2 LBS. Finally ....... I made my goal of getting out of the 300's. I was scared to blog about it yesterday because I figured today I would end up being back in the 300's since I was barely below. So you can only imagine how happy I was to weigh 297.8 LBS. this morning.

Two Down & A Lot More To Go...........

Monday, January 16, 2012

Well the first two weeks of January has came and went. I can't believe how fast time flies (too bad the pounds couldn't fly with it) LOL. Although, I really can't complain since I started out the New Year at 315 lbs. and today I weighed in at 303.8 which is a loss of 11.2 lbs. so far this month. I guess being involved in six different challenges at one time DOES pay off. LOL. I am really enjoying these challenges even though it is kind of hard to keep up with all of them on a daily basis. I been getting a wide variety of exercises, as well as tracking nutrition, and trying hard to stay within my calorie range everyday. By being more involved, I have been learning about "Spark" and it's "People" more and more everyday. It has enlighten, motivated, and inspired me to live "life" to it's fullest each day and it has help me to realize it's okay to mess up as long as you don't give up. Life is challenging each and every day, but what I choose to do with those challenges is all up to me! Good Luck and God Bless!

    That is a great weight loss. I quit after losing 40 pounds in 2010 because I am a binge eater and ate most of our son's ice cream cake from Dairy Queen. I didn't come back until I was nearing a doctors appointment in May of 2011 and I knew she was going to be upset with me.

I lose weight then try to convince myself that I don't have to keep exercising and that I can eat the way I did that caused my weight problem. I am trying this time to get to my goals and get rid of that type of thinking. I was lying to myself.

Thank you for reading my blog, "I had a great day." I enjoyed my meal although I had no idea we were going to be going to a restaurant for dinner and I liked the food I chose. I also liked sweet potato fries which I have never had. I always dip French fries into ketchup, but these were good without it and I didn't miss it. It is little things like that that will add up to pounds lost, instead of a baked potato, butter, salt and pepper and sour cream like I used to get.

You are on your way and doing wonderfully, congratulations! It feels good, doesn't it?

Note to Self.............Continued................

Monday, January 02, 2012

Well, you didn't do as well as you thought you would. You didn't meet your goal of making it under 300lbs. by the New Year, 2012. It's okay! We all have set backs. This journey we're on sometimes hits a few bumps in the road that causes delays, but they can't stop you from getting to your destination. Only you can and that is something you can overcome. So let's get back on the road and continue your journey. Let's start by making new goals and getting back on track. I know you can do this. Just become a better driver and avoid those bumpy roads.

Note to Self..........5 Weeks From Now...........

Friday, November 18, 2011

Well what can I say......You didn't know you had it in you to stick to the program this long, did you? Losing weight through the Holidays is such a great accomplishment and proves that YOU CAN DO THIS! You finally lost enough weight to see a 2 as the first number on the scale which is something you haven't seen in awhile. Joining this challenge has been such a blessing. It kept you motivated through a tough time of the year and provided you with so much support from your fellow Sparkers, who encouraged you to keep the "Spark" glowing. No more excuses. No more failures. Just one day at a time. Keep doing what you have been and you will continue to meet your goal, by accomplishing each mini goal along the way. I am so proud of you and all your fellow Santa's Sleigh Belles for all of the hard work each and everyone of us did during this challenge. And by the way, CONGRATULATIONS ON OUR VICTORY!
