Top Reasons That I Want To Be...

Sunday, September 28, 2014

emoticon HEALTHIER
-I want to be healthier because I want to live a long, full life with my hubby.

emoticon THINNER
- I want to be able to have my husband hold me like this because its romantic.


emoticon STRONGER
- I want to participate in a 5K
- I want to be a runner
- I want to be able to feel good in jeans with sexy legs

The most important way to get all of these things that I aspire to do is be more mindful.

Heart Healthy

Saturday, September 27, 2014

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I did the American Heart Association Walk today. I've never done one before but I thought it was a good cause and felt that I should do it. Hubby walked with me so it was a great thing for both of us to do.

I learned a lot about our heart that I didn't know. And I heard a survivor story of a man who's had three major heart surgeries. It was inspiring.

Gotta run for now! Just wanted to check in and say emoticon

Happy Friday!!!

Friday, September 19, 2014


Hi Friends! How are we this wonderful day? I am feeling pretty good despite that this week hasn't been the best nutritionally or with exercise. I've rested three days but I do have a job where I'm on my feet a lot so that helps. I ate well the early part of the week. However, starting Wednesday, things went a bit array. Not horribly but a little. However, I am feeling pretty good mentally with being more conscious of my choices and eating smaller portions and that makes me happy!

I am looking forward to the 5% Fall Challenge that starts on Saturday. And I'm also doing the BL Fall Challenge. I really to make some good progress once and for all!!

How much will YOU lose in 16 weeks?

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

This is the header that I see everytime that I open SP! Well, that was over 10 weeks ago that I put this up and I've lost 5 pounds. I do realize that 5 pounds is not bad...I just wanted it to be more.

Somewhere between need and want is where the problem lies!

I have been doing better this week though.

NSV's:

1) Monday I wanted to have beer but I said NO.
2) Tuesday I was EXHAUSTED but did Leslie Sansone walking DVD instead.
3) Tonight I wanted Mexican but I came home and healthy, yummy fish tacos instead.

I am making progress. I am making healthier choices. This is not about the perfect choices that I make. No one is perfect. This is about the healthier, better choices that I make overall.

I'm getting back there...Well, I'm working on it.

    Very true, no one is perfect and I also don't expect myself to be. Making healthier choices is an excellent goal and I need to think about my journey that way too. Thanks for this

Watching Biggest Loser...

Sunday, September 14, 2014

is me. Although I'm not as heavy as that group, everything else is me.

1) Fear
2) Belief
3) Confidence
4) Love

I lack all of these in myself. I've been battling this weight loss now for almost 6 years. The first three were fine. I was working out. I was eating healthy. I was feeling amazing. And then emoticon my knee decided it didn't want to play anymore. Over the last three years, I've been struggling to get back to where I was before and to be honest, it's not going all that well! I've let myself down. I've let my family down. My mind isn't in the right place and I although I'm not sure how to get it there again, I'm not going to stop and I'm not giving up!

Today, I had a bit of a wakeup call. I put on a pair of XL sweatpants that my husband bought three years ago. He had to get them for me after my knee surgery because I was cold and had nothing large enough to put over my brace. These pants were HUGE then although they worked perfect for that time. It was chilly this morning so I decided to put them on since they were always so comfy. They are still big but nowhere near as big as they were. I cannot continue this pattern. I need to start digging deeper so that these pants as well as my other clothes start to fit like I want them too.

    Catching yourself and figuring out how to start over are big parts of this journey. The rest will come. Getting past the fear and gaining self-confidence have been two of my biggest challenges. emoticon

    Totally agree with those 4 components being so extremely vital to the wt loss process & just in general life of success & happiness. I am working on all of these things as well. I have gotten more confident and believe I can do more lately because of my work situation and thankfully it is spilling over to my personal life. When I first began my wt loss journey 8 years ago (wow!), the biggest change was believing I could do it. You just have to believe and be patient just like your amazing quote. Hang in there girly, you've got this. Those sweat pants will be huge again by New Years! emoticon

    Great blog!

I am right there with you.... things aren't fitting as nicely again and I know I have had a lot of changes coming off the program with the nutritionist and starting up with the trainer, but buying bigger clothes again is just not an option! I had to break down and get one pair of jeans that fit more comfortably because I had to have something to wear for co-op on Monday's, but that's as much as I'm willing to do.

We can do this!!!!

    I watched the Biggest Loser as well and I have to say that except for the athlete part, any of these people could be me too. I especially identified with the two who were dealing with grief. I had already started to gain weight but grief really propelled me further down the ladder. I've had my wake up call and I'm so thankful that I did. Good luck to you in your overall journey and in the Fall 5% challenge!

    That is such good incentive to use that thought for helping you. I will do that too because my clothes fit tighter too and I don't like that one little bit! Just a meal at a time and then it will be a day at a time for each day left in 2014. emoticon emoticon

    You can do it! Don't push your knee too hard, but doing the exercises from Physical Therapy, flexibility training, Pilates, beginners yoga, and walking, will help you on your way. You have taken the first steps in the right direction. emoticon
