8 months to go!

Monday, January 13, 2014

I am getting married in October and I really need to focus on losing weight. I want to look the best I can in my wedding dress and for my future husband. He is so supportive and he says I look beautiful the way I am. I dont know what I would do without him. I am going to eat better and work out 4 days a week...I hope. I really hope with my wedding as my goal I will actually be able to stick with it this time. Prayers are appreciated :) Thanks

    it's challenging to find the right balance of eating and exercise that works for YOU. hope you can find something that you enjoy that burns calories. or a good workout buddy.
all the best as you prepare for your new life. emoticon

Hoping this time will be different

Saturday, September 28, 2013

Ok so I am back...again...and hopefully for good this time. I am having a hard time with discipline because I love food and lack the want to exercise. I have gained more weight now...216 :( My friends and family are so supportive and I love them so much so I dont want to give up this time. My boyfriend and I talk about marriage a lot and we do plan on getting married...I am hoping for next fall. Anyway, I want to look really good in a wedding dress without having to worry about buying a plus size dress. I really need someone to help me stay accountable to eat better and exercise more. I only live a mile from work so I did walk to work on thursday so I think I will do that twice a week when I dont go to work at 6am. I am just hoping I can stay focused this time and actually accomplish my goal. :)

    I felt the same way when I was 42; open heart surgery set me straight. Whether we like it or not our bodies do not like the crap that our desires tend to love. So with that learning experience behind me I learned to listen to my body. At 74 the health knowledge gained has served me well. So don't listen to your desire - listen instead to your body. Its much wiser. emoticon

Getting back to it.

Saturday, January 12, 2013

Wow I haven't done this in awhile. I feel bad that I did not stay on track and I know I can make every excuse in the book so I wont. I do have to say that life has been pretty stressful. My grandma passed away on 12/20/12 so Christmas was especially hard this year. My life is still pretty great. Work has been pretty hectic since I am taking xrays now on top of my other work. My boyfriend I still amazing and I got to see my niece for Christmas. :) I have gained all the weight that I lost plus a pound so I am determined to keep it off now. My boyfriend even wants to go on a diet so maybe we can do this together. Here is to hoping I stick with it this time.

    I was wondering where you were. I fell off a bit over thanksgiving and Christmas too. Hard during the holidays. I'm not too far off where I was but it's hard to step it up again. You wish you could just snap your fingers but that's not how it works.

Slow and steady.

Busy Busy Busy

Sunday, October 14, 2012

So my life has been super busy lately. I have been more active in my church now (I play handbells and have Bible study the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month) and juggling my new boyfriend who I have been dating for a month and a half and I could not be happier. I have been trying to keep up with logging everything and portion sizing but at certain times of the month (you ladies know) I have been struggling with cravings. I am doing ok I think but not as good as when I first started. I have been going out to eat a little more so I can meet his friends and he can meet mine and it is so hard to find something that will be healthy. I even look at the nutrition information before we go so I can see what would be good. Holy Crap!!!! Even looking at salads I am floored by how much fat and calories there are!
So this is where I am at right now. My exercising is still nonexistent which is not good and my body is trying to fight off something. I also have a test coming up this coming saturday so I can start taking x-rays at my job so I really need to pass that. This fall is turning out to be super busy with meeting his family and a trip to florida to see my sister, brother-in-law and new niece in November. It seems like every weekend I am doing something but I am sure it will slow down at the beginning of the year, I hope!

Life is Good

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

I have been able to tell my friends how great a website this is. My pastors wife told me on Sunday that she signed herself up on Wednesday after I talked to her and she is feeling amazing after 3 days!!!! She said she was doing everything wrong when it came to weight loss. It makes me feel good that the friends I have had sign up are feeling as good as I am.
My new relationship is also amazing right now too. He is sweet, and kind, and actually wants to talk to me everyday (we text but it is kind of the same). He even asked me to be his date next weekend for a wedding! My life has been so good since I have started using this website that I dont think I will ever be the same again. I love my life, my friends, my family, and my job most days and I think my more positive attitude is partly from this website. Everything is falling into place right now and it could not have come at a better time.
God is huge in my life and I have to thank Him most of all. Have a great day everyone.
