Back and Reenergized!

Tuesday, February 08, 2011

On January 28 I went on vacation with my family and some friends. It was my grandma's 80th birthday so we all went on a cruise! I was so happy with my weight loss progress before we left and was terrified the vacation would undo all of it.

I am happy to report that I walked all over in Disneyland, worked out once (should have been more, but I'll take the once) on the boat and took the stairs on the boat instead of the elevator. I didn't attempt to count my calories, but did try to have well rounded meals. I only gained back 4.8 lbs. And one of them is already gone.

Yesterday I got right back on the wagon. I counted my calories, worked out like normal and drank my green tea. I have not become unhinged and I still believe I can do this.

I feel motivated. I am still ready to have the results that hard work bring. :)

This weeks goal

Tuesday, January 04, 2011

My goal this week is to not weigh myself until Monday morning. I really have a problem where I weigh myself every day if not twice a day. It's enough to drive me nuts and not show me the overall progress. For example, my official weigh ins to record for my tracker are Mondays. Last week I weighed less on Wednesday than I did the following Monday. Yes, I got to record that I lost 3 lbs, but I was disappointed it wasn't the 5 I was down on Wednesday. I should be happy with 3 pounds. I think this will help me become less obsessed with the numbers.

    Well... I made it until this morning with out weighing myself at all. It has been really really hard. I compromised and weighed myself with a big heavy towel and wet hair. I weighed 155 lbs, which means that I have lost weight since that's below my last weigh in, but I don't really know exactly how much I weigh. So yes, I didn't quite make it, but I didn't quite blow it either... :)

Hello Spark!

Monday, January 03, 2011

It's been two years since I left you and boy am I sorry I ever did. But good news! I have kept off the 15 pounds I lost with this site! That is an accomplishment if nothing else. :)

I started back on the exercise and diet tracking on Dec 27th. I have 8 days of exercise and calorie tracking under my belt and I am feeling pretty good about it. I'm glad I did not wait until Jan 1 because I am just that much ahead.

I have decided to actually make some Spark Friends this time around so I have sent out some friend requests. I'm hoping to meet some amazing people to carry me on this journey.


Frustrated but Hopeful

I've been doing the bootcamp for a week now, following it how I should and watching my calorie intake. I was really excited because I lost 1.6 lbs. But then last night Adam and I went to dinner and now I have gained it all back. I know it takes time for the weightloss to show, but in the past I have gotten discouraged easily. I am trying really hard not to let that mindset overcome me once again, but it's hard. I feel like the weekends are working against me.

I really like the bootcamp and I can excercise for a half hour at a time now without wanting to die, so I guess it is helping.

Here's to sticking with it!

    Don't even worry about the weight gain. Usually the weight you lose in the first few days is water weight anyway.

Feeling Pretty Good

Wednesday, January 07, 2009

Today marks my one month membership of Sparkpeople. I have to admit, the first week I was a member I didn't really do anything, I was just learning the site and getting hyped up. But around week two, I thought to myself, hey this might really work! So I am happy to report that I made it through the holidays eating relatively well and actually exercised. Four family parties later, I did not gain any weight. Granted I didn't lose any either, but hey around that time of year I am not complaining. I'm proud that I didn't decide to make my weightloss a new years resulution.
Now that it is the new year, I join the SparkPeople's New YOU Bootcamp and can I tell you how much I love it?! It gives me resonable goals and I don't feel overwhelmed. Plus, it's fun! I don't want to get too excited yet, but I have actually lost a pound! We will see if it stays off by next Sunday when I do the true weigh in. It's great to have the support of all these people. I find myself thinking about my excercise and meals throughout the day, but it's not a drag like it usually is. I just hope I can really stay this excited forever!
