    One of my coworkers leaves tomorrow for Virginia Beach...I'm jealous of you both! Actually, I'm going to Reno/Lake Tahoe tomorrow for my sister's wedding/parents' vow renewal, so I guess I shouldn't feel too sorry for myself. Still, I love VA Beach! Hope you're having a great time & be sure to post pictures when you get back!

what a great show ... they just asked Allister .... how would you feel thin .... and he responds "I am not sure what if anything would be different. "
So I wondered. ... ... ... how will my life improve when I am thinner. and this may all be shallow but with any luck my reasons might deepen with time.
1. I would like my picture being taken.
2. I would like the way clothes fit.
3. I would be able to come off the BP medication
4. I would have more energy
5. I would look younger .... maybe .. it could happen ?

I think this could help ... I will try to think of more


Day one

Friday, July 16, 2010

I am tempted to reset my account .... something has to give.... I am back up to 220 ... well 224.7 ...

I am feeling a little bummed. I was so motivated 2 years ago. I never thought I would hit such a major road block. I have had a crazy time. It seems like a laundry list of excuses... Grandparents died... stress, issues, bad patterns, depression.... I will convince myself that I don't have the energy to go to the gym. The kids won't like it , I will be too worn out because of it. Worst of all I tell myself that I don't need to log ... "I am keeping a mental log of it "
ALL lies!

I know how to loose weight .... eat healthy, work out , LOG, BLOG, and own up to it ! Take responsibility for it. I am tired of feeling bloated, my clothes are all too tight, I have been rewarding myself with food. I want to feel better about pictures of me! We were looking through the album tonight and just as recent as New Years I was 200 ... 25 POUNDs in 7 mo!!!!! NOT OK !! I am going to start over and try blogging daily ....I have yo get back on track I refuse to end up back at 260!

    It's so great to see you, my friend! Sorry about your grandparents & the rest of the stuff you're going through. It's good that you recognized where you were headed again & decided to take action.

I'm like you...I know what I need to do but I'm really good at finding reasons why I can't do it. I'm finally at the point where (most of the time) I decide that making changes is more important that making excuses. You know that you'll feel better & have more energy after you go to the gym & the kids will be fine. We can go together & you can laugh at my feeble attempts to use those blasted ST machines. I can get myself in some of the most awkward positions on those things!

Reset your account if it helps. Log, blog & own up to it (sorry, but I'm definitely stealing this phrase)! Just do what you need to do to take care of yourself. I can't wait to watch your progress & cheer you on!

    If re-setting everything to zero will motivate you, do it NOW!!! Whatever it takes to get you back on track. I speak from experience. After my father died I gained almost 40 lbs in less than a year. That was after gaining 15 lbs the previous 6 months while he battled the cancer. It's taken me 2 years to lose 35 of those lbs.

Whatever you need to do to stop the backslide, do it!! You are worth the effort.

    Hang in there, Jen! You are an amazing woman, mom, friend and MOPS steering committee member! Being a mom is hard and sometimes it's hard to find time for yourself...especially with the crazy summer schedule. I love you, will be praying and thinking of you and know you can turn this around!

Attention skinny "b"'s

Monday, April 12, 2010

I understand that my weight has "bumped" back up to 210 !! and that I carry weight in my abdomen but that doesn't give you the right to assume I am with child!!! Certainly that would be a blessing but after 3 kids my body does show some wear and tear... unlike this lovely skinny woman who thought I was PREGNANT. I thought there was a rule ... never ask unless absolutely certain... or on good authority ... or when I am waiving an ultra sound around!!!
HOWEVER .. I politely informed her that this was not the case .... and I am sure she was embarrassed ... but it crushes me. Maybe because I'd love to be doing the whole kids thing again. But we are done .... and I am trying to loose weight. I worked out this morning but I felt so bloated today. Why does it bother me so much and how would you handle this ?

    There will always be insensitive people around us or just plain out right stupid people who don't really think before they spew words out. Just let it be your fuel and know it can be done! it is not easy as we both know but consistency is the greatest tool in success. Remember one meal @ a time & one day @ a time
brings us closer & closer. I am proud of you for not giving up and I am there to cheer you on girl!

  I understand completely how you feel. I think you did the right thing, but instead of letting her get to you, let it help you. When someone mistook me for being pregnant I let that be my motivation to lose my weight so much more faster. Let her be your motivator.

    It happened to me awhile ago at work (b-4 I lost weight) some one in the production area who I never hung out with came up to me as I was handing out time sheets to the supervisors and asked me point blank if I was pregnant. I was appalled and very hurt b/c I would never ask another person if they were pregnant. It's none of my business, it's theirs. Only thing I can tell you is to let it go , you did the right thing and told her nicely that you were not pregnant so I am sure she is totally embarrassed and ashamed of herself. Good luck with everything. emoticon emoticon

worked my behind off!!! set up for the rummage sale started today. We received a massive amount of donations. I was thirsty and tired all day!! Tomorrow I will be taking in the bottled water ... it seems all they offered us was soda and coffee. This is the second time I have chaired this sale. We do it so that our mops group gets money ... the church gets money ... and best of all people in the community get great deals!! I donated 2 truck loads of stuff!!! What a load off !!! The kids are really helpful now with deciding what goes.In the past I would black bag items that were broken or unwanted and we would trash them or sometimes have a garage sale. But I really like this better ! In the fall we grossed 10k ... with any luck we will get 8k ... the spring sale is typically smaller. After what I saw come in today ... I am not so sure !!! It was quite impressive.

Back to why I am blogging ...
I really love working with the church members ... they are all "older" ... older than me that is .. and they are fun. The women cook lunches, today we had Ham with mac and cheese. I really need to pack a salad ... but since there was absolutely no time to snack I figured Mac and cheese would do. I am proud to say though that there was pie and donuts ... I DIDN'T EAT ANY of them !!

Over all .. I didn't do too bad today .... I feel like at least I earned what I ate ..lol but I am tired and ready for bed... another big day tomorrow.
