Biggest loser last night- my thoughts.

Wednesday, November 11, 2009

Ok , first of all so roaylly p*ssed that they sent Shay home. Also noticed they showed an update on Daniels progress but not shay's - really hoping she didn't fall off the wagon. Hoping they are saving it for the finally. Also I think Rudy did make a deal with her and then go back on it. The trapeze workout looked cool- would so love to do that.

Well all you watchers- what did you think on these things or other things?

    So, yes I agree with all of what you said about the show.

Shay was on Jay after Biggest Loser (he is going to have the person that gets voted off each week!)

She was doing great she has lost 50 more lbs.!! :) She said on Jay.

    Completely agree with everything. I wondered if I just missed the update on Shay...so I didn't, interesting. That's so strange. And I agree that she was a huge threat even though people kept saying she wasn't. Guess that's why it's a game. Sad though.

    Well I guess I should never read your post because I haven't seen last night's episode yet.
They sent Shay home because she's the biggest threat to all of them.
Its all about the numbers.
I was really rooting for her to win.

    I was really mad too when they sent Shay home. I bet Jillian is going to be p*ssed!!!! I also noticed they didn't show Shay's progress. I hope she is sticking to it.

I'm just not really into it this year, it's too different. I don't know who I want to win. But I will keep watching!! Lyn

Sweet Dreams:)

Monday, November 09, 2009

Ok so I went through the dunkin Donuts drive thru to get my hubby a coffee,and my kids some donuts and when I opened the bag there were these delicious pumpkin cookies inside I only wanted to eat one but ended up eating 3. Then I was all mad at myself because those cookies totally blew my calorie count for the day. Luckily a couple seconds later the alarm went off and I was only dreaming. Seriously those cookies tasted so real. Luckily dream cookies don't count!!! However I fear that I will have to make some low fat pumpkin muffins today to satisfy my subconscious.

Ahhhh sweet dreams.

    What a funny dream! I like Pillsbury's pumpkin bread mix. I just make the muffin recipe on the box and sometimes throw in walnuts or pecans. The family loves them.

Another good picture today btw! I bought a New Moon tshirt over the weekend! I can't wait!

Let's see how far we've come.

Sunday, November 08, 2009

When I first started this journey back in the 3rd week of May, I didn't know how much my life was going to change. I knew I needed to lose weight and I knew that I needed more energy, and I knew I wanted to be at the premier of the New Moon movie (major twifan here!) So I got out the free calendar our insurance company sent us and plotted a path - I thought , If I could lose 2lbs. per week that would be about 50lbs. by the premier- so I made going at midnight my reward. Everyone knows how to lose weight "eat better, move more". My family already had a membership at the Y so while the kids went to camp I hit the treadmill. I quit hitting the drivethru and planned my meals- then I remembered sparkpeople and started joining teams and making friends. Well now, the premier is 11 days away and I have lost 60lbs. I still go to the gym pretty consistently and I still avoid fast food.

This week was not so hot- I gained about 2 lbs:( but you know what, I have worked really hard to get here- it was a set back not a give up. I know how to do this and I can succeed!!!! I'm still gonna try to lose 5 more lbs. by the premier, but if I don't and I only lose 2 or 3 more I'm still over 10lbs. over my goal. SO.... I'm gonna dress up, do my nails, go out to dinner ( calories be *amned) and hit that premier with my friends knowing how far I've come. I earned this night out!!!!!

    you say that you gained 2lbs. i'm pretty sure you did not. what I mean is that our body's a very funny if i can put it that way, it is probably water retention i say this with a 97% chance that it is water.

we are women, my mom told me once that she felt like a loufa sponge on certain occasions. lol but your weight can fluctuate up to 5 lbs before for can start thinking that it's fat. My body does this to one day I'm at 142 then the next day 143.5 for no reason.

all of this to tell you to not worry about those 2 lbs.
keep up the superb work that you are doing . congrats on all that weight loss. i'm happy for you!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Keepin it real.

Friday, November 06, 2009

One of the reasons I love sparkpeople so much is that it forces me to be accountable to myself and all of you. So today I'm gonna "keep it real". The last few days have been a disaster. I have eaten what I shouldn't have,and not went to the gym when I should have, (only went Mon, Tues, Wed) . Yesterday instead of dropping the kids at school and hitting the gym like I should have, I came home instead and crawled back in bed with hubby. (that was kinda nice actually- I mean bad Julie , bad). Every month the week before my period is like an alien abduction. My will power is gone, my normal optimistic outlook is gone and I swear, my brain is in slow motion. The depressed grumpy *itch that takes my place reeks havoc with my weight loss goals and doesn't clean the house. Every month I fight to keep her at bay, but eventually she always shows up, and then I spend the next week putting everything back to normal- so it's like two weeks of the month are a waste and I have only two weeks of progress. This week so far I have gained about 3 lbs. I HATE THAT. I know it's just something we have to deal with as women, but when my husband can eat like a pig and then complain (outloud) that he dropped two lbs. I just want to scream- I mean come on, you know how hard I work to lose 2 lbs.

I should have about two more days of this insanity, until the normal me comes back , right now it's about trying to contain the amount of damage I do. Sorry about the vent, but confession is good for the soul.

    emoticon for "keepin' it real"!!

I hear what you are saying! For me I can do everything the same but there is still that stupid period weight gain to have to look at every month. And that gets me in that funk you are talking about at times.

Hang in there!

    Hey lady....I know...it's hard....it sucks...but you can do it. I swear you stole those words right out of my mind once again. We are too much alike. The fact that you don't give up once it's finally over with is a HUGE accomplishment. I wish we could come up with a pill to take to get rid of cravings...ugh...I'll be thinking about you! :)

    Good job keeping it real. It's good that you recognize the cycle. Talk to your doctor about supplements etc. Do any of the PMS things help?

I have gained 2 lbs in the last two weeks and I think it's all related to one cheat meal. I was on a rant this morning about how I can work so freaking hard and lose it all over one meal that can wreak my success.

I chose a new saying off my motivational poster today that said "It's You vs. You". Today our challenge seems to be to overcome the bad us that pulls us down an backward!

I started my day with a 10 coach nicole video, made healthy selections for my breakfast, snacks, and lunch. I brought my gym bag to work so I can jog at lunch. We just have to overcome and keep on going!

Hang in there....it's almost New Moon time!

    I love that you are "keepin it real!"

Why don't you invite the madwoman for tea and befriend her?!!! Maybe you can learn something from her (what she needs) to help you devise a new strategy for the month.

Hang in there!

Super scary before picture

Wednesday, November 04, 2009

Back when I was a big fat fatty, I rarely ever let anyone take my picture but yesterday going through photos for another reason I came across this one. WOW seriously, I look like the blueberry girl in Willy Wonka. It is amazing how much weight I have lost in my face- I think it is because i exercise my mouth way too much:) Anyway, It's going on the mirror because I never, ever, ever want to go there again.
