3 pounds heavier than when I started. So much for that huh? lol
Last Saturday I sprained my ankle, so the walking/little exercise I was getting in ended because I couldn't walk/stand well, etc without pain so I gave up the bet without actually quitting it. (because you don't have the option I guess. lol)
I'm not going to go though all the trouble of weighing in today, so we're done with that. 3 weeks was basically impossible to loose 9lbs. It just wasn't going to happen... I knew it from the beginning. Weight sticks with me like Glue.. some people say the heavier you are the easier it is to loose the weight, that's not always true. for every 10 people that weigh 250lbs and can drop 20 by looking at the gym, I can weigh almost the same and go to the gym everyday for 3 months and not even loose 9lbs.
The good thing that came out of the dietbet is I realized a couple things. I can eat better if I try. (money is a great motivator. lol) and I need to get a treadmill, like now.
I've been saying I want one for about a year now. then I dropped my gym membership because its too far away to go to all the time. I'm going to attempt to get a YMCA membership for the family, now that I have 3 kids on disability.. We can't afford $100/a month, but it would be great if we could get it under their financial aid program... and the YMCA is just around the corner, and I could take all the kids there, and put them in different things like swimming lessons and camp for cheaper.
But if that doesn't work, then I'll be getting a treadmill.. probably on credit. people are selling them on CL and such, but Most of them are REALLY old, or in my pricerange, something is busted on them.
Planning on going down to the market in the street today it's the last day. It rained last night, so hopefully people didn't pack up early.
just wanted to update on the dietbet. Wish me luck for the months ahead!

So, just the other day I was down to 231.8 Feeling good.
I got on the scale today hoping I'd be under 230, but I was thinking I'd be 230 and it said 234.8!
I thought about checking the batteries incase they are going dead. WTF.
I'm still not exercising, but that hasn't affected the weightloss I was having. so I don't think that's it. It seems too much to gain if it's water weight or something.. it seems too much to gain in not enough time if I was eating Twinkies for the last 3 days.
Maybe I've been eating too much of my good foods? lol I'll try harder to pay attention. Sure, I've had some things that weren't so great for me, but it wasn't like huge amounts or anything.. WAY less than I was before. just sucks, because I was actually in the running for that dietbet, but now I'm surely out. I'm almost at the beginning and we got like 2 weeks left.. now it's more like 5 pounds a week. I know I can gain that, but can I loose it? lol

I cancelled the gym membership.. well actually, it kinda cancels itself when you change your bank and forget to let the gym know.. I wasn't going there anymore so it wasn't on my radar. lol I'll sign back up when I have more time, if that ever happens. We just live in a place that has no gyms anymore. Nothing closeby. We have the YMCA, which I honestly wouldn't mind, but totally can't afford.. and we have Curves, which I think is pretty worthless (no offense to anyone that likes it) and isn't worth the money they want for sure... this place was cheap. 10bucks a month, but it's not if you factor in the 20m car ride there and then 20 back... atleast 3 times a week.. So I'm doing at home stuff, when I can.
last week I joined a Dietbet group.. My friend on facebook started one, and the deal is if you loose 4% of your weight you will split the pot with the other people that do as well.. I underestimated how much weight that would be.. to loose in a month.. ummm... no. lol
it's about 9lbs.. by august 11th. That's like almost 3lbs a week.. NO WAY. not unless I'm downing waterpills and deciding to either not eat or eat and then make myself vomit... so I'm in for $25, but someone else is getting it... because I misunderstood how it worked. lol I've lost 3lbs since I started, but it's not registered because they have some strict picture/weigh in rules, and I didn't get the pictures in on that first day... they know I lost .8lbs. lol It told me I have a 23% chance of winning.. Thanks for the motivation captian bringdown.
I decided for this bet I'm going to focus on eating. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME I decide I need to loose weight I decide it's time to work out everyday for an hour and not do a dang thing about the diet, that it will just kinda fall in line.. it never does, then I lose a half of pound after 3 weeks (because I gained 5lbs to begin with) and then just drop it. This time I decided I'm going to focus on the food part and not pay much attention to the exercise right off. (that and it's wii or videos that I;m doing and the kids feel the need to sit around and watch me, and it makes me REALLY uncomfortable so I quit. lol)
So everyday, I get up and have breakfast.Which is a big thing for me because I don't eat in the morning. I'm having fruit for breakfast. Kiwi and cut up watermelon, and sometimes some banana and/or cottage cheese it's like 300 calories for my little fruit salad, and I feel fine until lunch. spark people was saying I could eat like 2500calories a day.. which is CRAZY.. I'm not breastfeeding, I'm not pregnant, I'm not a 7ft 300lb professional wrestler, so I brought it down to 1500-1800, and we'll see if I can stay within that range. Now, don't think i'm innocent. I have my sugar free jello, but sonetimes I feel like having a mini candyar or two, or seconds on dinner.. But I'm trying. lol I got a meal measure thingy.. it sits on a dinner plate then you fill in the holes in it and it shows you how much you're allowed of each thing. I'm having salads for lunch (and sometimes before dinner) with homemade ranch dressing made with greek yogurt, which I was super scared of, but its not terrible. It's not full fat mayo ranch dressing, but it's not bad.. some people think it's tastes better. I don't. lol But there was a time that I drank regular coke and couldn't stand to drink diet and I smoked too! so things change. I could see myself getting used to it and not liking the normal bottled ranch someday too. Anything is possible.
As for the workouts.. if you want to count climbing stairs 12 times a day for the kids and weekeating the backyard, going to the park with the kids and taking them on roadtrips to places I have to walk all over, (such as one of my latest pictures to fort casey it's like a 10mile long old military fort they used in the 30's, it's now a state park, and I did tons of stairclimbing and pushing the stroller and plain just sweating in the 80degree heat. lol) I haven't fired up the wii games, my controller I think is screwed up because it's not registering when I do the moves on the game, and it drives me nuts when I'm not getting awknowledged for my progress in those games. lol
but, Ill be back when the bet is over with the amount I lost. . wish me luck!

Hmmm.. Didn't make it to that damn gym. lol
But I'm working towards getting a treadmill and just staying home and doing the workouts. right now I've been playing my Wii workout games.
Haven't got on the scale. I imagine it's pretty scary right now, so I'm kinda boycotting it.
Jake was sick 3 times in the last month, I don't need the gym bringing anything else home. Thankfully school is almost overwith, so hopefully we'll stay healthy the rest of the year.
I've gotten lazy.. All the driving I do (and yes, bringing miranda to and from school everyday is alot of driving lol) I just don't feel like doing anymore. I wish they would build a Evolution Fitness closer to home, but until that happens, I think i have to bow out of the gym... not exercise, just the gym..
oh and dont laugh, but I'm buying a portion control thing too. you put it on your plate then put the food in it, and it measures it out for you so you aren't eating a ton. I don't think that will help when i grab a bag of chips from the pantry and then sit down, but atleast it will help at dinnertime. lol (yes, I'm trying to make a effort to not do that anymore)
so here we are, about 9 days away from my first goal.. planned on being under 200 by june 1..
That wouldn't of happened if I was still going to the gym. I need to get off my butt and doing something, I changed my goal to August.... 2014. lol now that is more realistic. Now I down feel like I've got some deadline, because I'm sure I'll give up again.. lol going to try portion control and eating better.. and some exercise... I can feel those 22's creeping on Tighter than they were 3 months ago, and I don't want to wear that size without a belt. I don't. I won't. My thighs are rubbing together in a very terrible way, not comfortable, Diabetes is getting harder to pretend like I don't have.. It's time to do something, it's been time to do something. I have to act. I'm scared. I'm scared that I'm going to be starving all the time if I'm not eating huge meals, I'm scared of what I'll look like naked if I loose 80lbs. (not that the view is great now, but you know what I'm saying. lol)
Most of all, I'm worried I won't be able to do it and I'll be starting at the ground floor again in 6 months.. when I've lost 2 pounds.
wish me luck, I'm going to need it.

But I'm working on getting back on the horse.
I'm finally getting used to taking miranda to and from school, as it stands right now, she's staying at her school, so we'll probably have to deal with the transfer over the summer. I imagine anyway.
The gym is just so far away.. it used to not be a big deal, but I have much less time now in my life because I'm taking miranda to and from school, still unpacking, etc.
But I'm going to make an effort to get out there a couple times a week, then decide if I should just buy a Treadmill or something for the house instead... Putting Levi in the daycare just makes him sick, then all the kids are home with a illness, and I can't get to the gym. It seems like that place is for people without kids.. lol
but I'm thinking, Tuesday and Thursdays.
I'll decide what to do with the rest of the week.. Monday the kids return to school after spring break, so I'll try to start going then.
I really don't have much hope in loosing weight though, I mean, I lost 10lbs in 3 months.. I just DONT LOOSE WEIGHT. lol my body tends to hold onto every last pound, no matter what I do.. but I do like going to the gym.. it's some quiet time for me.
Wish me luck.. If I had the money I'd just go get the dang lapband and be done with it. lol
