I had my weigh in today and the scale said 329.8
Technically it's still 330, but in my mind, it's 329! I haven't seen 329 or have been in the 320s in four years now! I'm so excited! I haven't been exercising due to personal reasons, but I have been watching what I eat. I have a very long way to go, but my motto is, "One step at a time, One day at a time". And more good news, I've been taken off my acid reflux medicine! There has been the occasional time where I'll feel the acid coming on, and I'll take a few tablespoons of apple cider vinegar with some water, and in less than 10 minutes, it's gone.
I'm not labeling myself anymore, when it comes to vegan, vegetarian, etc. My plan is to eat mostly vegetarian, but a day or two a week, have only chicken or fish. So far, that's been great. I don't feel deprived of anything. I have a feeling though somewhere in the future, I'll go back to only eating fruits and veggies and plant based proteins, but for now, the foods I've been eating work for my body. I'm learning now not to put labels on myself, just do wonderful things to help my body inside and out.
What about you guys? Have you put labels on yourself, but soon after realised labeling isn't what you thought it was?
Take Care Everyone, and Have a wonderful rest of the week!

In my last blog post, I blogged about having a nutrition appointment. I had that today, unfortunately, I had to reschedule. But the good news is that I still have time before the appointment to lose a little weight. I've been side tracked a little and stopped working out since yesterday. But I'm not beating myself up about it. That's actually a positive thing, because in the past, I would have threw in the towel when I didn't exercise and say to myself, "I'll start back next month". Difference is now, when I stop for a day, I get back up the next day and continue my workouts. I'm proud so far. I hope it gets better.
Today and the rest of the year(certain days), my Mom, Brother and his family and close relatives, have placed their bids in on what I should make for upcoming birthdays and holidays. Sometimes I feel like their the saboteurs, but their my family and I love them. And I don't mind making desserts. It's a hobby of mine and I love baking and decorating. When I'm not at school(I've taken a little break from college). What about you guys? Do ever bake desserts for birthdays, holidays or anytime of the year? Do you sometimes feel like the desserts are tempting?

I thought I'd write my blog for the month of September.
My favorite seasons are the fall and winter seasons. I love the cool autumn breeze, the leaves changing colors and falling off the trees.
This month in September, I have a nutrition appointment this week and I'm very nervous, but excited. I just want to say that I love Sparkpeople and my Spark friends very much and you guys support. We are all here for not only ourselves, but for each other as well! In writing this blog, I wanted to share with you guys my goals for the month.
Goals for September:
1) Make sure I have breakfast every morning. No waiting until lunch time to eat.
2) Get out of the 330s and into the 320s. (I've longed for this forever!)
3) Do AT LEAST 10 mins of exercising/fitness, 4 to 6 times a week.
4) Work on making a collage (I still don't know how to do an online one, or look for pictures)
5) Change my Sparkpage to a fall season like pattern.
These are my goals for the month of September. My weigh in is tomorrow. I hope to have lost some weight, I've never lost 20lbs before. However, whether I've gained, lost or have not lost any weight, I'm very proud of myself of the accomplishments, I've made since the end of July.
Take Care Everyone, and Have A Happy September!

For the last two weeks maybe three, I haven't been the best at eating healthy. I've been eating nothing but tacos, spaghetti, raisin bran and applesauce, in addition to pastries. I feel disgusted with myself, but I'm not beating myself up about it. I haven't felt bloated or anything. I just feel like crap after I've eaten something heavy. Don't get me wrong, I've been eating fruits and vegetables here and there on a budget when we can afford it, but when those fruits and vegetables leave the house, I'm back to eating "junk" I don't want to.
We don't have a local farmers market near by, but we do have an Aldi's Grocery Store, I've been wanting to check out. Never been there.
How do you guys face different food challenges? How do eat healthy when your on a budget or when there's nothing healthy to eat?
I have been exercising anywhere from three to four days a week using Walk Away The Pounds by Leslie Sansone. I can only do the 1-Mile Walk for now. The name of the DVD is "4 really big miles". I've been doing this DVD workout since August 2nd, off and on. I'm surprised I can keep up! One step at a time.
Starting tomorrow, I'm going back on my healthy eating journey. I feel much more better and energetic when I do. The last several weeks, I've felt very sluggish and brain fog, all behind the food choices I've made. How do you begin eating more fruits and vegetables?
Take Care and Have A Good Week!

Earlier today was not a good. But I feel okay now. After a few weeks of no fast food, I ordered two tacos and a plain chicken sandwich, which ended up being my late breakfast. A few hours later, I suffered from dizziness and headaches.
I KNEW it was the fast food and in addition to the fast food, I had a small soda and some chocolate. All which I knew caused my ill feeling today. I told myself, "No More, No More. I see it now". And I do see it now. I see what we put into our bodies can really affect our health. I also did a trial and error over the last few months. I've noticed that when I eat foods, I know my body doesn't agree with, I immediately feel ill and not right from it. When I put healthy things into my body, I feel energetic, positive, overall healthy. I know what my body can and cannot tolerate and my body doesn't like fast food, junk food, dairy, gluten, etc. I'm starting my exercises again soon, maybe Sunday. Overall, I've learned our bodies are like cars. What we put into them, can have a totally different output. Put gas into a car, it runs and runs. Put anything other than gas, and it won't budge. Same with our bodies, when we make healthier choices and lifestyle changes, we run and run. Other choices we make, and we don't have the energy. I really see it now. And hopefully, I will stick with it this around. I have my entire life ahead of me, I would like to inspire others.
I've been interested in doing yoga, but I'm 300s plus pounds. Does Yoga offer the same benefits as regular exercising?
